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. Thank you for this video. I haven’t used alcohol markers before but after watching this I bought one set of Altenew markers. My first attempt isn’t great but I’ve watched the video again and I’m having another go!!!

    Linda Kitto… England.

  2. Thank you for this video. I have been looking at alcohol markers but not sure which brand to buy in my budget at this time. I am becoming a Altenew fan. I love all the cards in this video, you inspire me to make more and more cards. Have a blessed day,

  3. Thanks for this very helpful and informative post and video, Jennifer. I’m glad there is this high quality but more affordable alternative to copics, especially for people newer to colouring and crafting. I’m actually drawn to these as a good option for travelling – sometimes I can feel a bit overwhelmed with choice when it comes to my copics, and it would be great to just be able to grab a few sets of these and know I had everything I needed for some pretty colouring. Beautiful cards as always!

  4. Hi Jennifer, Awesome video and Amazing cards, this post was VERY informative for me because I have been wanting to try the alcohol markers, they have scared me in the past so I have avoided them now I feel so different about them, I can’t tell you how excited I am to try them. Now I am not that confident in my skills, I just said I am excited that I am finally ready to try them now, lol!! I really am, so thank you for this video, you can bet I will be saving this to my Jennifer file to look at a million times 🙂 Thanks again, Hugs

  29. I am excited to try the Altenew markers, also love my copics! Thank you for another great video, always enjoy them!
