Stampin' Up! Haul #2

Hello there, how are you all today? Last week I made another order from Stampin' Up! and I thought you may like to see what I bought. I usually save up and order a large amount in one go, that way you get the hostess benefits and can earn free products but this time around there wasn't too much that I wanted needed so I just did a small order.

This also gave me a good chance to try out the new online ordering system. I think it is good, you still order though a demo, mine is Julie Kettlewell, but it means you can order 24 hours a day if you so wish!

Here is what I got ...


PRODUCTS:
 

Like I said in the video, I would love to hear your thoughts on the Stampin' Write Markers if you have used them before/still use them. I have been interested in the possibility of purchasing some pens to use like watercolour pencils/markers. I asked on my Facebook page about what people thought of the Distress Markers so I would love to hear what you think of the SU Markers too. I have just ordered a couple of the Distress Markers to try so if anyone is interested, I may do a little review/comparison when I have tried them both out. I know they have both been around for a while but thought it may help some people. What do you think?

  1. Hi Michelle,
    firstly I'm so glad that you are sounding better!
    Secondly thanks for sharing your Stampin Up hall - I love SU !!
    I have not tried their markers but would love to know how you get on.
    I have also been asking people about different colouring pens. I use ProMarkers but I'm thinking about changing to Copics or distress markers.
    Take care xx

  3. Hi Michelle, I'm so glad you are feeling better. I enjoy your haul videos. I don't have the SU markers, but we use them at stamp class for selective coloring on some stamps (like a flower that needs green for the stem/leaves and the flower top that needs a color). And we use them with the colorless blender pens, I really think that takes good practice. I think you will really like SU markers for water color by scribbling them onto a clean acrylic block and pick up the color there with your aqua painter. I love the reinkers for my water color and I purchased lots of them before I ever owned a stamp pad LOL. I just felt like I was getting more mileage for my $. I use them in my Tim Holtz artist tray with lid and they live forever. I just dilute them with a water dropper to the consistancy I want. And rewet them when I need them. But now that I've been going to quite a few years, I've collected many pads. It's all the same ink for the water based dye, whether in the pad, the marker or the reinker. So if you've done water color by pressing the pads while they are closed, open them and pick up color in the lid with your aqua painter, it's all a similar result. I would like to have the large set of markers, but just haven't spent the money. I'm such a stamp and die-0-holic. LOL I would love the copics too, but again the $ stops me. I have some arthritis from carpal tunnel surgery and other spinal injury/surgery, so my hands don't necessarily like to hold a slim writing utensil. You'll think I'm funny, but I purchased the Crayola washable markers at Wal-mart to see if I would like coloring with a marker. Because they are washable, I can use them for water color and enjoy that. The aqua painter is easier to hold due to the large barrel and it's much more forgiving than the pressure for coloring with markers. I do it sometimes for a different effect. Aqua painter is the easiest for me. How's that for a novel of my thoughts.

  4. I really love the markers michelle!! using them to water colour is a new favourite technique but i love the ability to stamp in different colours.
    There are a few LOTV cards on my blog that i have used them.. The little boy back to school is a great example of how i have used them
