Coffee? Hair color? A leather tote? What in the world were they describing?
You’ll get a clue from the fact that this is something Stampin’ Up! told demonstrators about last week. The answer:
Mine are already in the house (one of the benefits of being a demo!), but until I’m finished with Inkspiration Saturday, they will stay boxed up. Maybe.
I’m pretty sure your first question is, “Didn’t we have these already?” And your second question is, “Wasn’t there a huge failure?” And the answer to both is “yes.”
Stampin’ Blendabilities (“Blendies”) were with us for only about 3½ months, and I’m not exaggerating when I say my heart was crushed when they pulled them from the SU! line because of manufacturing problems. I loved the effect of these alcohol markers (rich, saturated, smooth!), and in fact I still use mine.
What I have read so far is that there has been significant testing to make sure those issues have been resolved. And although the techniques we’ll use with these markers appears to be the same as before, Stampin’ Up! has made some practical changes to the markers. So I’ll move forward in confidence.
When will Stampin’ Blends be available to customers? We don’t have that information yet; Stampin’ Up! is making sure they know what colors and related products are popular with demonstrators so they are prepared for you.
Can’t wait? This is a great time to sign up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. New demonstrators can choose Stampin’ Blends as part of their Starter Kit.
Because we’re already in the first quarter of the fiscal year, the date when you must buy (or sell) the quarterly minimum of $300 is not until March 30! Yes:
- Six months enjoying the demo discount,,
- The inside track on information and product/technique videos
- Early access to upcoming products (the Occasions Catalog! Sale-A-Bration!), and
- The fun of being part of a group of enthusiastic stampers (whether hobby demos or business builders).
