WOWZERS – you all LOVE your SU Blends!
Last week I did a series of posts here and here and here talking about what the SU Blends are, how to get them and some FAQs. Little did I know that you were all so ready for these FABULOUS alcohol markers!
Yes they blend beautifully! Yes they are priced fairly! Yes they coordinate so well with Stampin' Up! colors (better than the previous version of alcohol markers, if you ask me)! And yes they are so much fun to use!
Here's just a tiny sample of some of the comments I have received:
SD from TX “I cannot BELIEVE how much better these are than the old ones – they are almost better than my Copics! These blend so well – NO lines, NO pilling on the paper and awesome colors! Meg, you're killing me with the goodness!”
FL from MA “Wow – just wow! I have all kinds of alcohol markers in my stash and these new Blends are WAAAAY better! The brush tips on these markers are so soft so I get amazing movement of the ink but not so juicy that I get bleeding. And the bullet points are amazing – I can actually BLEND with them whereas I can't do that with some of my other alcohol markers. PLEASE let me know when they come out with more colors – I want them ALL!”
BC from RI “So here I am in Rhode Island with leaves all over my yard and I just can't pull myself away from coloring all day to rake. These Stampin' Blends are CRAZY AWESOME. I am loving that I can use my regular SU! markers for details and blend around them and everything looks so beautiful together. Copics who?”
DM from CA “Meg, you have never steered my wrong but I was a little hesitant to get these new Blends because I already have so many markers like these. I followed your 3 2 1 plan and got a set and ho-lee-cow these are so nice! Your suggestion of using the neutrals – I got the gray – and combining them with the colors to make MORE colors was genius. I just ordered the rest of them because man-o-man are these fun to use.”
Seriously, I wasn't able to post much because I was fielding orders and happy feedback all week. SU Blends really ARE a fabulous addition to your Stampin' Up! stash and I am so happy that so many of you are feeling the love.
If you haven't ordered yours yet, check out more about that 3 2 1 plan Diana mentioned here.

In the meantime, keep that feedback coming! I love hearing how much you are loving your SU Blends and you KNOW I will let you know when there are more colors available!
