Today’s cards feature the brand new Magical Day stamp set and Magical Mates framelits.
I squealed when I saw this bundle in the catalog. It immediately reminded me of Disneyland then it made me think of Harry Potter.
All things magical and whimsy.
I absolutely love that this set works for both boys and girls. If we are being very gender prototypical, you’ve got unicorns and mermaids to please the gals and dragons and wizards and knights for the fellas.
Now in my house dragons and wizards are just as appealing to us ladies as they are to the old man that sits in the chair (HA).
The purpose of today’s video is to answer some questions regarding the Stampin’ Blends as they compare to Copic Markers.
I have received several emails over the last month or so with questions about these.
The biggest one, and frankly the one that is the most silly, is “If people want to use alcohol markers, why wouldn’t they just by copic markers? They are the best.”
My answer: Copics are AMAZING. I own lots of them. I love them. I color with them regularly. Guess how much my collection has cost, $500+. YES!!!!! And I don’t even have them all. Guess how much time I have invested in learning the copic marker coding system and how to blend well? I am thinking I am definitely over 100 hours now. I have invested a good $200 into classes that would teach me how to use these markers.
I have invested $121 in Stampin’ Blends and learned to use them in about an hour. You see the difference here.
Don’t compare apples to oranges.
Watch the video and I will chat more about things.
