Altenew Alcohol Based Markers + DISCOUNT CODE + GIVEAWAYS

Hello! Today’s video is all about the Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT). These markers are an affordable alcohol-based option that are great for crafters. I also share several fun techniques.

In my video, I share lots of info on the Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT) and why they are great for crafters. Be sure to watch the video to learn more! And also read the bottom of this post… I have lots there, including a discount code and lots of giveaways.

My first card features the new Altenew Wallpaper Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) — isn’t that flower gorgeous?! I colored it with Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT) using a feathering motion. I also added a sentiment from the Altenew Inked Roses Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

Here is a closer look at the coloring. I am not the best coloring pro out there, but these markers make it easier for me. There are two big reasons for that: these markers have a fine and brush tip… and they come in coloring families which takes out all the guesswork.

Here is another flower I created with the Altenew Wallpaper Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) and Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT). This time I used a more traditional coloring method to get a smooth blend with bold color. I also added a vase from the Altenew Versatile Vases Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

On the background, I stamped faux marble tile squares using the Altenew One Day At A Time Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I stamped this with Altenew Frosty Pink Ink… which is a perfect match to the Altenew Frosty Pink Artist Marker that I used on the flower. That is another reason I like using the Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT) — there are inks to match each marker color. Yay!

I also added scoring lines around the marble stamping for texture. The sentiment is from the Altenew Thank You Builder Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

My next card has a completely different look. After stamping flowers and a sentiment from the new Altenew Bold Bunch Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) with Altenew Inks (SSS | ALT), I added basic colored details with my Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT). This is super easy to do and makes the colors pop!

By the way, I stamped a sentiment on most of today’s envelopes from the Altenew Rennie Roses Stamp Set (SSS | ALT).

My next card shows that you can use alcohol-based markers for simple, solid, smooth coloring. It isn’t always necessary to take the time to acheive blending. Alcohol-based markers give smooth results without leaving a scribbled look. Here, I used the Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT) to color an image from the Altenew Book Club Stamp Set (SSS | ALT). I also used matching inks to stamp “thank you” from the Altenew Thank You Builder Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) and borders on the card edge.

My last two cards use the Altenew Prettiest Pomander Stamp Set (SSS | ALT), Altenew Versatile Vases Stamp Set (SSS | ALT)… and the Altenew Leaf Medallion Stamp Set (SSS | ALT) for a sentiment. This flower stamp set is great because it includes the outline image along with layering images for adding the color. My first card uses all these together… and I added details with my Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT).

And here is another example using the same products… but this time I did not use the outline stamp. This gives a no-line coloring look with little effort! I just added a few extra details with my Altenew Artist Markers (SSS | ALT).

This shows how fun it is to use inks and matching markers together. I am not perfect at coloring, but this is good for me! 😉

  1. Thanks sooooo much, Jennifer! You have just brightened a rather unhappy weather day here with so much color and goodness 🙂 Don’t you just love the newest colors of ink Altenew has come out with?!? Such happiness!

  13. I really like the Copic markers, but it is really nice to have a cheaper alternative. I especially like Altenew’s color families in their inks and the markers look to be the same. Thanks for the wonderful ideas today. I especially liked the card you make with the “Bold Bunch” stamps.

  14. Another wonderful video. I have the Altenew markers and I love them! They are easy to use and I learned long ago that you don’t need the “million dollar” marker to get great results. I am so grateful that I did not hop on the Copic bandwagon when it came to town. It was one of the few smart decisions I made!

  15. Thanks for the info on Altenew’s Artist Markers. I don’t have Copic markers and these would make a great alternative. I love all the ways you showed to use them.

  22. Such a nice variety of cards. I was doing research on alcohol markers to determine what I would like to purchase for my supplies. So glad you posted this blog. Now I know which markers to buy. Thank you.

  23. All beautiful cards Jennifer, I especially adore the Versatile Vases and the Pomander set from this release and your cards with those are amazing!! I just recently started getting the Altenew Artist Marker sets so this post and video is perfect timing :). I have Sets B, C, D, and will hopefully soon have the Primary, A, and E to complete my set. I love these markers so much, they are the only Alcohol Markers I plan to ever have – yes I love them that much LOL. Thank you for your generosity always with your time, talent, giveaways, your charity endeavors, and awesome inspiration in cardmaking and life! #GoodnessComesFromTheSoul

  24. Thank you for the chance at these awesome prizes! I was really glad to watch your video reviewing the Altenew markers because I’m trying to decide which marker line to invest in. I’m returning to crafting after a long time away and your videos have got me excited to dive into stamping. I was mostly a scrapbooker but I’ve had your channel playing on bust for the last while (I’m home on maternity leave) and I find it so inspiring. Thanks for all you do. 🙂

  25. I love all of your work but I have been a little nervous about using the markers but your make it look so easy!

  26. Jennifer I love the cards you created with the new Altenew flowers and ink pad colors.
    The boldness of the Wallpaper Stamp set you did in red really is an eye catcher!
    Thank you for always inspiring us all to do more, do better and to enjoy art in so many ways!

  27. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I love this new release especially the Wallpaper Stamp set and dies. I love all the cards but the rich color and large flowers are beautiful. Thank you and God Bless!!

  28. I absolutely love the new stamps from Altenew! My favorite is the Wallpaper set, so beautiful. I also appreciate the review of the Artist Markers. I have been using Copics, but they are getting so darn expensive. It’s nice to see another alternative out there.

  29. These cards are all fantastic! Thank you for your more than generous prize package in support of Young Life, of which I was a member in the late 1960’s! I can’t believe the box I received – almost 8 pounds of wonderful and creative goodies! I am overwhelmed! The big bonus is one of your enamel “handmade kindness” pins which will adorn my craft apron. I will share some of things with some of my crafty friends and use them for some classes I share at my church, with friends and (hopefully soon) at our local Senior Center. What blessing you are to our crafting community! I have followed your blog since the very beginning (I’ve been making cards since 1969!) and you are such a sweet inspiration!
