Product Showcase: Copic Markers & a Giveaway!!








{Reported by Ashley Harris}




Copics. Raise your hand if you have been dying to get your hands on these. Oooh oooh! Me Me Me! (Me frantically waving my hand.) I recently acquired these amazing pens for the purpose of this review. They are everything that I had hoped them to be. FABULOUS. Let me tell you why.

These pens are great because you can blend them and not tear up your paper. The idea of blending is that you want to saturate your paper with the lighter color first, then go over it with the darker shade with an equal saturation. After this, then go over with the lighter color again to get rid of the harsh edges. Another thing I really liked is when blending two colors, the lighter color does not become discolored. HUGE bonus.



What I made:

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics parakeet, OP White; Stamps: Unity Stamp Co., Copic Sketch Markers E29 Burnt Umber, YG03 Yellow Green, G17 Forest Green; Ink: Whispers by Sugarloaf, Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft, Ribbon: Misc



Materials: Cardstock Bazzill Basics OP White, Stamps: Clear and Simple Stamps, Ink: Whispers by Sugarloaf, Rhinestones by Kaiser Craft, Copic Sketch Markers V09 Violet, B05 Process Blue, RV29 Crimson, RV11 Pink, YR04 Chrome Orange, Y15 Cadmium Yellow, YG03 Yellow Green

Materials: Cardstock Bazzill Basics OP White, Swiss Dot Phoenix, Stamps: Clear and Simple Stamps, Rhinestones: My Mind's Eye, Copic Sketch Marker RV29 Crimson


Where and How Much:
Product: Copic Sketch Markers
Manufacturer: Copic
MSRP: $6.49 for individual marker
Available online: COPICmarkerS.com, Amazon.com, Jet Pens


My whole opinion is that these markers are great. The only drawback is the price, but you get what you pay for. I, personally, will continue to build my collection of these markers.

What do you think? Do you have Copics? Are they on your wish list? Let us know! Leave your comment here by noon EST on Thursday and be entered to win a prize from COPIC!

I haven't used the copic markers yet, but want to so bad. Love the examples you did. I'm bookmarking this site. Thanks

barb in nc said...

I have heard so many wonderful things about these markers. They are definitely on my wish list!

SplendorFalls said...

I really enjoy using copic markers. While they are on the spendy side, I totally agree that you get what you pay for. Now that I have a few I find that I am using my stamp collection much more because it is so much fun to color them in! Something I love about them is that you can get that shaded look with just one marker if you keep going over the areas you want darker. Fun product for sure!

Wendy said...

I have never used them, but would love to give it a try!

carriegel said...

I don't have any but I have heard great things about them.

heather said...

These makers have been on my want list for a long time.

I've never had a chance to try them and after having purchased so many markers over they years that didn't measure up I'm a bit gun shy.

I would love to try them and if they are all they claim to be I'd have no problem with the price. I might have to build my collection slowly but from what I understand they basically last forever because they can be refilled. I also heard you can even mix your own colors. That is VERY appealing to me because sometimes the color I want doesn't exist pre-made.

Jenny McGee said...

I have tried these markers once, they are great. I do not own any, so if I win, that would be awesome. Thanks for a chance to win.

kmassman said...

I don't have copics (yet) but I would love to have some. Cute cards! Thanks for the giveaway!

RAP said...

On my wish list!

rebecca_geile said...

I have not tried copics, but would really like to. The price is a definite drawback and the reason I haven't purchased any.

Carla said...

I would love to have a set of copic markers!! I have not had an opportunity to work with them yet, but have several friends that have, and they just rant and rave how great they are! You are absolutely right, they are a bit pricey, but I have always believed that you get what you pay for!! I have never heard a bad thing about them.

ArlaMo said...

I don't have any...yet. But I've seen so many great reviews about them lately, that I think they are my next major purchase!

Nancy L. said...

i've never used copics before! i would love to have them, but my budget just will not allow!! thanks for the chance to win!
your cards are great!!

Angela H said...

I have never used copic before, I have seen sooooo many wonderful projects produced by these wonderful markers. With this wonderfuk review, it has enticed me more to want them.. I love you projects, the blending is what drwas me in and the fact that your paper is not torn after using these markers over and over in one area is a plus!! Thanks for a chance to win!! Love your reviews!!

Gabi said...

I don't have copics, and I've never used them personally, but all my friends collect them, and I've see first hand what they can create!!! I am dying to get my hands on these!!! The price is pretty steep, and that is the main reason why I've never set out to buy any for myself. I figure when the chance presents itself then I will jump to it, but for now I will lay back and keep dreaming about them :D

Janine Rachau said...

So far, I purchased 3 browns to get started, E55, E57, E59, because I wanted to start with something basic. I used them to color the edges of Prima flowers for added dimension and the worked beautifully. They are all they are hyped up to be because they blend well, dry well and have deep tone.

Your cards are awesome!

~~Mia~~ said...

i would love to try copics!!! thus far i have been much to cheap (poor/broke/bad with money) to buy any!!!!!!!!! great review, thanks!

diana albright said...

i covet the copics, but alas, my wallet cringes at the price tag. i would be incredibly lucky (and grateful) to acquire some.

Jennifer Cowan said...

I have not tried them yet.. but I am really starting to see them EVERYWHERE. You scrapbookers are enablers!

I would love to try them!

Jill said...

Definitely on wish list

Karen Martins said...

I haven´t used these markers yet but I´m really looking foward!!!
All the work that I see with the copic markers get me stunned!! The collors are amazing!!

Amy said...

Super cool and definitely on my wishlist!!! Thanks for the review!

Jen said...

Love your cards Ashley! I haven't tried Copics...yet. I have seen so many creations and fabulous coloring with these, and only wish I could be half as good as the artists out in the blog world. Thanks for the chance!

Joni Parker said...

I have a few Copics. I couldn't figure out what the big deal was...they are just markers. Ok, I realize now that I need to do some research and find out more because your "tip" on how to blend with them was news to me. I have a feeling I may just find out why they are "more than just regular markers". Thanks for another great review (and inspiration).

Cindy said...

I've never tried copics and am dying to do so. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jodee said...

I've never used Copics but hey, this would be a good time to start!

Lisa said...

I've heard so much talk about
copic markers. What a great blog prize. I would love to try these markers out!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

I've never used any Copic markers...but I would LOVE to try them! I see them used EVERYWHERE! THANKS:)

Anonymous said...

I drool over these pens everytime I go to my LSS. They have some beautiful displays utilizing these pens. I also love your examples. Your reviews always give me ideas to work with. Too bad I am at work and not at home where I can play. Have a nice day,
Deb

Ezmina said...

I have a few copics and love them!! I am currently saving up to try and get more of the colors.

Diane M said...

I love Copic markers. What hooked me is the fact that I now like my coloring.

Thanks for the opportunity to win a Copic prize!!!

Diane M

Natalie said...

I've never used Copics before, but from what I hear, they are the only way to go! And from this review, I can say that I'm convinced even more! Great coloring on those cards! :)

kimberly a. said...

Oh my best product enabling scrap friend has been raving about these markers- hoping to find some close to home that I can try. Love your tree card- you can really see how the colors blend!

Stephanie Zito said...

Wow! Your card examples are incredible! I LOVE Copic markers! I have a few and love their blending and shading capabilities and the fact that they go on so smooth, do not tear your paper and that you can use them on so may surfaces (including fabric)! I would love to add to my collection! Thanks for the chance to win such a great givewaway!

mustangkayla said...

I have heard such great things about them and really want to try them. I would love to play with a couple before I bought them, but seeing as none of my friends nearby have them, I will probably end up buying one and testing it out!

KittyMama said...

I just bought my very first Copics on Saturday. Only used them a little, but I see great potential once I watch some videos and see all the awesome things they can do.

Jingle said...

The price has prevented me from trying these. I have some good quality markers, PrismaColors, and I love those, but I can't help but see that the quality that comes from Copics seems to be unmatched!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

No, I don't have any but I did finally try this this past weekend at a retreat this weekend and they are great!

Paula said...

I would really like to try these markers. I see them all over the blogs, but I have been unable to get any here in town. Thanks for the chance to win some!!

Avital said...

I didn't want to start a new obsession and these markers seem HIGHLY addictive. However, I have heard so many good things about them lately that I am starting to crave a wee collection...

Celeste said...

i've always wanted to try them!

Robin W. said...

I've never had the chance to try one, but everything I've heard about them has been good. I like your examples of what you can do with them!

connie said...

I have never used them but they have been on my wish list and would love to win some to start my collection!

Dianna said...

Personally, I don't have any Copic markers. They are on my wish list!

Emilyt said...

They could certainly spice up the idea of using my stamps...so I think trying them would be on my wish list and winning them would be sweet! Thanks!

Jackie said...

I don't have any copics yet...but would love to try them!

Rebecca said...

I've slowly started to build a collection of Copics. My Hobby Lobby sells them and sometimes you can get them 30 or 40% off. Could you guys do a review of their Spica glitter markers--havent used those yet.

Scrapamum said...

Copics are definitely on my wishlist. I think they are fabulous!

Erica Hettwer said...

They are totally on my wish list! I only have one Copic marker and that's the clear Spica glitter one. I love it, it's great when you need a more subtle look than the Sakura gelly roll glitter pen. I've got some examples of both on my blog. :)

Scrapycandy said...

I think they are an amazing tool. I have to say that I am still using my watercolor markers and I'm not sure that my extended family knows the difference. Someday I hope to get a chance to try out the Copics so I can see the difference. Thanks so much!

grammyscraps said...

Ohhhh...these would be so much fun to play with..love what you did with your cards. Thanks for this opportunity.

Dana said...

I have a small stash of Copics. It took me a while to get how to use them, but I love them now. Slowing growing my stash.

Sue McRae said...

I haven't tried Copics yet but they are on my wishlist for my birthday in April! It seems everyone is using them for their coloring and the projects all look so great. I can't wait to try them!

charmi said...

Love the cards that you made with them !! i've heard about them before & i think they are wonderful..also i've signed up a copic class by a certified instructor at my local lss. Would love to win this so i can start my copic collection ;)

Melissa Kaye said...

I have really wanted to try these but can't get past the price. Thanks for the fabulous review and chance to win!

Scrapendipity said...

I am dieing to try Copics and love all the projects I've seen with them. These cards are adorable!

Naomi said...

they are SO on my wishlist--I didn't think I would ever use markers, etc
then I tried Copic & now I am hooked....

Guylaine said...

I'm in LOVE with COPIC!!! watatow... I want to win :)

Donna E. said...

i've only heard great feedbacks abt Copics and i've been dying to have them in my stash. although expensive, i would love to have a collection of these markers as well, i know it would be worth it!

thank you for the chance!

Veronica said...

Okay, there is a "Copic Cult" out there and I think they are ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, but I'm a little scared. I might not be able to do them justice!!! If I win, I'll do what I can to make them proud! :^)

TracyJ said...

My scrapper buddy has them and I've slowly been convinced that I "need" them too! The blending is what attracts me.

Lisa Cutler said...

These things are all over the place right now- everyone is talking about them. So afraid to start as they will become my new drug of choice! I did just order a few journaling pens of theirs to try.

lynnfrompgh said...

I'm a new Copic "Cult Member" and I'm definitely hooked!! The colors are so brilliant & vibrant......now what do I do with all my "other pens"?

Jen said...

yep, they are THAT great. i'm a new copic owner. i LOVE them. i enjoy coloring more now than i ever have!! they rock!

Kathy said...

I am new to copic markers. I have about a dozen and the blender pen. They are fab!!! I wish I had more time to color. I would love to take a class!

Jenn said...

EEK! Can I frantically wave my hands with you? I am dying to try these markers but can't justify the price. Thanks for the chance to win some!

Etta said...

I've been wanting to get my hands on some, but they are simply NOT in my price range. Thanks for sharing, I hope I win!

Merrilee said...

I don't have any Copics, but I have heard great things about them. I would love to win some to try!

JustYolie said...

I tried them out at a craft show, but I don't own any. They are just too pricey for me. I hope I win giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

Jacqueline M. Schimmel said...

Totally raising my hand on this one. I have tried them out at the craft store, but I am saving to get a whole set. They are truly awesome! Yay!

Mélyane said...

Oh! I've been dying to try Copics! I use Tria lettrassets markers but everyone I know use Copics. I never had the chance to try them si that would be the perfect opportunity if I win them!
Thanks for the giveaway!!

Monica said...

Copics are amazing...I hope to own some soon.

Jen said...

I've got a couple of them and love them! My only problem has been to find a good stamping ink that won't bleed when I use the markers (that and affording them!).

Rachael S said...

I love copic markers. I used to color with prism watercolor pencils and my paper would warp and tear. I've had no problem with the copics!

Brenda said...

These are the best markers ever invented and I am always up for a few more. I love these things.

Mary said...

I have only have 3 Copics, but I do like using them. Lately I've been coloring a lot with Prismacolor pencils, but I just found out the Copic colors to use for faces....those markers are definitely on my wish list!

Jennifer said...

Been wanting to try these!

Emily said...

Ohhhh, I SO hope I win! I don't own any, but I did once have the opportunity to try some and they are fantastic!! Unfortunately, so far they've been out of my budget :(

Moe said...

I HAVE MY HAND WAVING FRANTICALLY AS WELL! PICK ME, PICK ME.

Joy Pearcy said...

Want these pens so bad. Thanks for the chance to win!! Great cards you made!!

Charlene said...

I love them too and pick them up a few at a time :-)

Hester said...

I don't have any. But your cards are wonderfull!

Gayle215 said...

I love these markers and only recently broke down and bought a few. They are fabulous! I made Christmas gift tags & valentine cards with them.

stamp500 said...

I have one marker and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of more.

PamS said...

I have used these markers in a card class and now I want them all! They even say that you can store them any which way.

Linda Flynn said...

I love the Copics that I have (4). I actually color the stamps and then stamp the image onto the paper. It works great! My Christmas cards came out great this year.

weze said...

I took a class and have 8 markers but would love the chance to expland my collection! I know it is also a skill that I need to practice with!

nailgirl said...

i have a few of these! they are awesome and really do blend like a dream! would love to win some! great product, worth the money imo!

Cynthia B. said...

oh YES. Copics are definitely on my wish list. They look fabulous. I don't have any (yet) - so I appreciate the chance to win some!

peg said...

I really love the great art you can make with Copics. No don't have any.

lisa808 said...

Your coloring is great!!!

I don't have Copics yet, but they sure are on my wish list. Would be a dream come true to win some. Thanks for the chance.

Carol said...

I am totally intrigued by Copics.... I have a bunch of old prismacolor markers and they never quite lived up to their claims... Your samples are beautiful! I'm hoping I can swing some budget magic before Christmas and join the fun!!

Jean said...

I do not have any nor have I ever seen them. I have head so many wonderful things about them and it is time I tried them!

THEY ARE ON MY "WISH LIST" !!

PattiM said...

love copics but I'm not very good with them. They are worth the money and something that everyone should have in their supplies. I have a few and love how smoothly they color and glide on the cs.

Hugs,

I Scrap So All Moments Are Remembered!

Joanna said...

These are DEFINITELY on my wish list...I've drooled over the effects they can create on many a blog, but my local scrapbook store doesn't carry them :(

Arjanne said...

The only reason I haven't bought them yet, is the price. I'm a student, so I can't pay 5 euros on a pen (you don't want to have one, you must have at least a few to do something nice with them). So I would really really really want to win something!

klasickewpie said...

I have a small collection of Copics but I try to buy one every two weeks when HL has their 40% off coupon. I would be thrilled to add some more with your giveaway.

Anonymous said...

I've never tried them but all I see are fantastic reviews!! I've been getting into stamping more lately...hmmmm...I could sure put some Copics to good use :)

lisa g. said...

wow...I just recently started to get into stamping...I would love a chance to try Copics out!!! I've only heard wonderful things about them!!

Jewel said...

I have been dying to try Copic markers but I can't find them where I live. Since they are a bit pricey, I have been hesitant to order them online and pay for shipping as I haven't been able to try them out first. Thanks for the review!

Jan said...

I don't have any but would love a chance to play with some!

CJandErik said...

Love to try them.

Shemaine Smith said...

I have been wanting to try these for sometime and hubby purchased me a few for Valentine's day and so far I really like the results. I would like some different colors tho. You know men and crafts like a bull in a china shop.

dahlhousedesigns said...

I have used them and they are pricey! I feel like you need a lot of them to get a good blend. At least three in the same family and for that reason, I tend to stay away from them. Though if I had the $$$ I'd get me one of those huge sets!

lisa a.

kgscrapper said...

I have a few Copics and love using them. I would love to win more!!

ScrappinCntryGrl said...

I dont have any at this time, but want to start to build my collection, I was just waiting on a good review of them. A friend got a set for valentines day and she loves them. And your artwork is gorgeous and just convinces me more that I need to start buying...thanks for the chance to win some!!

Yaritza said...

I've been debating getting a few of these. I've seen quite a few tutorial and ideas just this week and I'm really wanting to pick some up. The price is what has stopped me from going out and picking up a few. Thanks for the chance to win.

Courtney ;-) said...

I have a few already and absolutely LOVE them. I would LOVE to win more!!! :)

jan said...

Just tried my hand at Copics last week - they are WONDERFUL! Would love to win some, thank you for the chance!

Erika M. said...

I have a few Copic Markers and would love to learn more about them!

Cassi said...

they are so on my wish list!! would love to win. great cards:)

Kim M said...

I have heard nothing but raves from my friends about these markers. I haven't gotten to try any but they are definitely on my wish list for when I get some extra $$.

Sophie's Grandma said...

Everyone says Copics are awesome. I have never used them, but they certainly are on my wish list. Your cards are delightful. Thanks for sharing.

TaraDid said...

I am interested in trying out the Copic markers - everyone that uses them seems to love them! I have no doubt that they are a great investment (I do have some of the glitter pens made by Copic and love them!), but don't really know where to start with the makers. Hmm...if you draw my name, it would probably help start up a new obsession for me. Thanks for offering this great opportunity! ~Tara D.

Lori Ann P. said...

I have wanted some Copic markers for a long time now but the price has kept me from getting some. I hope I can win these that would be so awesome!!!!!!!

Christie said...

I just recently got into Copics. Love them! I am also loving that Gumball Machine Stamp. So cute!

ranoe said...

I've been dying to try these markers, but I'm afraid they are like potato chips--when you start, you can't stop.

Angela Fehr said...

My first Copics are on order. I'm hoping I will love them and it will get me more into colouring.

Anonymous said...

I am dying to try these markers! I have a small collection of markers that just sit in a container because they just don't work well. I have heard so much about these, they will find their way into to my creative space hopefully soon! ; )

sclugo said...

These are definitely on my wish list. I've seen Jennifer Mcguire do some amazing work with them and would love to try them out. Thanks for the chance. Love the Happy Day card!

Sandra said...

yes - on my wish list ... I figure after my 3 kids get through college, if I am still making money I can justify buying them then .... only have to wait about 10 more years!
thanks for the fun!
Sandra

carpediem said...

I own only a few copics and agree that they are pricey however I love to color with them and have several on my wish list!!! laura j

Vicki said...

I only have a few copics but I love them. They color so smoothly. I would love to add to my collection.

Dolores said...

I love your examples of how the lighter colors do not get overtaken by the darker shades and how completely they cover even small areas. I used some red and green for my Christmas cards and loved the depth of the colors as well. Thank you for your review. I was waiting to decide if I wanted to add to my 2pen start and now I most definitely will.
Thank you
Dolores

Shawn Wenrich said...

I do have a very nice set of Copics and I think the qualify outweighs the price. They are really worth it!

Linda in FWB said...

That describes me exactly - I would love to get my hands on some Copic markers and try them out to see what all the buzz is about!

GrannyCharlotte said...

I have bought a few of the Copic Sketch markers and have tried a couple of them and like what I see so far. Thanks for sharing and for an opportunity to win.

bumblesnbees said...

I have not tried copics yet, due to the price-they sound so amazing!

Rbarakat said...

Oh wow! I cannot tell you how I long I stared at these at Roberts crafts today! I kept going back but they only had a bundle package for $80.00! If they sold them individually I would have bought a couple but even with a coupon I just couldn't do it! I have been wanting these for a long time! Whoever gets picked is going to be so lucky!!!!

Linda Peterson said...

I do have some copic markers and really like them.

Jenny said...

I have yet to use Copics, but would love to try!! I see so many great things created with them!

Beedubya said...

I can't even begin to tell you how much I would love to start a collection of Copics! They keep getting bumped down my wish list because I know when I start, I won't stop!

Hugs,

Brandi

Joli said...

Every where I look people are raving about Copics! I am not a stamper - would these still be useful to me, or are they pretty much stamping markers? I doodle and journal with markers, would these be godo for that??
Thanks for the review!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I love my Copics, it would be awesome to have a few more!

Anonymous said...

these markers are super nice. my friend has these, but i don't want to use them, cause i know they are expensive. though she has done some cards with them and they came out gorgeous. i would love to get my scrappy hands on them.

Zarna said...

I would love to try out some Copics!! I am very reluctant because of the price and I'm the kind of person that needs to collect them all... so if I were to start using them, a few for free would at least not hurt the pocket as badly :)

Peggy said...

No I don't have any Copics yet but I have seen how people brag about them in the crafting world. They are definitely on my wish list. Unfortunately I can't afford them right now. Would love to win some and see what everyone else is raving about. God bless!

Paula... said...

I don't have any Copic markers yet, but they are definitely on my wish list. I've heard so much about them!

I was drawn into the Copic lovefest last year and LOVE them but agree they are expensive. Thank you for the opportunity to win a prize. EJ

alwayscharlie said...

Oooh oooh! Me Me Me! (Me frantically waving my hand) I'm sure I need these. I've had them on my wish list for months now!!

elaine said...

I have been eyeing them for a year but have been afraid to to start. A little fear for the actual using and more for the amount of money I will spend to "get them all"

lorena b. said...

Yes, yes, and yes. Everything said about these markers is true! Love them! It's all about practice, practice, practice! or should that be play, play, play!

Janette said...

I want to try these, but it seems like you have to invest a lot of $$$ to get enough colors to blend and make it worth it. I think if I start, it will be addicting =).

marla said...

I have a few Copic markers and LOVE the way they color. I havent expanded my collection too far because the price is a lot more than I want to pay for markers. thanks for a great giveaway. I would LOVE to own more of these.

AnnaB said...

I haven't tried the Copic markers yet, but I know a lot of people LOVE them! I guess you could say I'm trying to avoid them, because I have a feeling it could turn into an addiction... ;) But of course I can't miss out on the chance to win! :)

Christine Schmidt said...

What an amazing giveaway!!! I have not been fortunate enough to try or buy these FABULOUS markers but I sure would LOVE to play with them!! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome prize & good luck to all of you.

gilroy gal said...

I've been trying very hard to keep my eyes closed when it comes to Copics...but oh, do I want to play with some of these beauties! I just know once I try them I will become addicted and want them ALL!!!!

Janette said...

I only have a few markers in my collection and hardly use them because they don't really do a great job. After reading your review they sound like a great investment and perfect for those colouring jobs.

Kelly said...

I have a couple of Copics but I definately need more! They rock!!!

cbk said...

None here, and they are on my wish list, just not in the budget right now.

Scarlette said...

They are the best I've seen for that dementional look in shading. But alas, I too only have a few due to their price. Thanks for the chance!

Cathy V. said...

I would love to get some copic markers but right now...that won't happen ...no extra funds in the kitty for want to haves & how do you decide which ones you want or just have to buy first lol?

Bronwyn said...

well, i've never had a copic marker before but I have been starting to hear a lot about them. Yes I totally want a collection of them!! The problem is that I just don't want one, and I know that if I try them, I will have to get them, So I would love to recieve some for free first to try them out!
Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Kathy said...

Would love to try them. Thanks for the chance.

hfolvik said...

I have been dying (different colors hee hee) and waiting quite a while to get my hands on a set of copic markers. They are on the expensive side but they are well worth the price. Everything I have seen using them looks amazing - no color lnes and everything blends - it looks professional. I cannot wait to get a set of my own. THanks for the chance to win!

{Sarah} said...

I don't personally own any, but I've seen them in action a few times and they are absolutely amazing, magic really! ;)

Tracey Randolph said...

I have just recently heard about these markers & am dying to give them a try. Before I would not purchase stamps that looked like they needed to be colored to look the best, since seeing these I have been looking at stamps differently. can't wait to try some....maybe soon! (LOL)

Amy Harle said...

Thanks for the great review. I'd love to try them out!!!

Stefanie said...

I do not own Copic markers (YET!), but after reading your review, they are definitely on my Wish List now! I love to blend colors and typically use my CTMH blending pen. I'll have to run out today and look for them! Thanks for a great review and terrific card ideas, too!

Robyn VanDerHeyden said...

Thank you for your review! I have been so curious to find out all I can about them. I don't own any yet because I have been waiting to hear how those that own them, like them. It sounds like it's time to invest in a few of them. Thank you for the chance to win a set. How fun would that be?!?

Delaina said...

I just love the projects you msge with the Copic Markers. I have always wanted to give them a try. After reading this review I just may have to give them a try!

Rhayne said...

Fab review! These have been on my wishlist for quite some time but I've never been sure they are worth the cost. I think you have me convinced :o)

Sherri said...

I've used the Copic Ciao markers but not the others. I'd love to feel the square ones or the oval ones in my hand. GREAT colors and nice projects!

Moon said...

I am a copic beginner, and Just learning my way. You did an awesome job with the cards! Now, I need to go try and duplicate that :)

triciapeever said...

I haven't bought any yet, mainly because I'm not good at drawing. But I have been gathering so many ideas and uses for these markers that I simply must get them. The price is a bit steep though, especially when you have no idea which colours should be your first few. My problem is that I want them all, so I just buy none.

I have collected about 125 Copic markers so far. I love them! They are unequaled for coloring images, plus there are so many other uses for the markers (especially if you have the airbrush system too). Copics are delicious!

Joanne C said...

I have about a dozen and would like every color!

Angela W said...

I have a few Copics! I would love to add to mine! Thanks for giving info on them!

I have purchased a couple of copics, but I am not very good - you have done a wonderful job! Thank you for the opportunity to maybe increase my collection!!

I don't have any yet!!! Tried some out at the LSS and loved them!

Pamela said...

Oh man...they are on my wish list. I went ahead and got a couple awhile back but never really used them as I didn't really know what I was doing. Would love to get some more so I could play! Beautiful cards by the way! :)

arlsmom aka Lynda said...

I have a few and use them, but probably not as much as I should. I would love to have more, but the price and local availability really get in the way of that.

happydays525 said...

I would love to own some of these and play with them! I saw someone at my lss using them w/the blender pen and was just in awe! So cool!

I would love to have some Copic pens, I have a friend who swears by them, but the price has always scared me away from the purchase.

BonnieRose said...

I have tried copics, but don't own any of my own.. yet... I wud love to win these.... how wonderful! hugs fr Fargo bonnierose

Amanda Profumo said...

Ashley, I agree with you 100%! I have only 18 markers, and building slowly to my collection because they are so expensive. BUT, they are worth it! They are definitely the BEST color medium I have ever used- clear, easy, wonderful! Thanks for the post and a chance to win more Copics!

Kay said...

I did use them this weekend at a Scrapbook Retreat. The demo was fun and I would like to invest in a few colors. :)

Lisa said...

Love copic markers! Your cards are so pretty!!

Lori Renn said...

Thank you for the review. Copic markers are on my gotta have list!!

janetpaz said...

These markers have been on my list for some time...I enjoy seeing the creative ways they are used but I haven't jumped in to purchase a set yet because I know once I own 2 they will multiply!
