2 new fairy cards {and 65% off markers!}

Happy Friday! Nope, that is not a typo in today’s blog post header, Letraset is offering 65% off the Tria Marker sets of 12 Friday June 17th only! The ink in Tria Markers is the same as in Promarkers but Tria markers are refillable and you can replace the nibs but the most wonderful feature of these markers is that it has 3 nibs! You get a brush end on one end (it has a nice “spring” to it, I like it better than Copic) and the other end has a chisel tip and a fine tip snaps over the chisel tip to give you 3 nibs in one. I love them. I have the Fashion set and it is fabulous. As my Promarkers are used up (not that any of them are remotely dried out and I use them all the time!) I will be replacing them with the Tria of the same color. To get the sale price on the Letraset website use the code: SHH-0611. Letraset ships worldwide too! Now on to the cards colored with Letraset markers:

The Flower Fairy stamps are from Crafter’s Companion, love these! I hope to own all of their individual fairy stamps someday, sigh…

Here are the close-ups of the cards. I stamped the fairies on Neenah Classic crest #80 with Memento black and colored them with my Promarkers by Letraset. I started with the darkest colors on the edges and blended them inwards with a lighter shade. The only difference between Promarkers and Letra set is that you can refill/replace the nibs and ink on Trias and there are 300+ colors in Tria and only about 144 in the promarker range. I have some of both and they work beautifully together!

The Library card digistamp is from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff in the Teacher’s Helper SVG set.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Don’t forget the Tria Marker sale at Letraset is today (June 17, 2011) only and you have to use the code: SHH-0611 when you checkout to get the 65% off!

Til next time Happy Crafting!

  1. Your cards are so pretty. I really like the way your framed up your little fairy. I have to say a great big thank you for posting about the discount code. Some of the sets are sold out but I splurged and picked up three sets for myself using the code. I got three sets with the international S&H for under $90 USD!!!! I’m sooooo excited because my Copics are all getting near deaths door and the price has gone so high that I’ve been looking for an alternative coloring method. I love that this marker has the three nibs. I’ve always wanted a detail nib…now I’ll get a chance to see if it helps or not. YEAH!

    Thanks again for the post!

  4. I was so impressed with your cards that I went over to the website for the Tria markers as soon as I got your email. All of the good colors were sold out already. Really disappointing. I thought it was great that the nibs can be changed or replaced.

    1. that’s too bad 😦 If I hear of any other sales I will post them here! I think Carpe Deim store has good prices if you are in the USA, not sure if they have sets but they had the singles for $1.99 USD each and you can pick and choose 🙂
