Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope your week has been a great one. It has been a busy one here, trying to get back to the normal routine after Spring Break. I had some neighbors helping me out, so I needed to come up with a fun thank you card to show my appreciation.
A stamped the image with black ink onto some watercolor cardstock. The image is colored in with Prima Confections watercolor paints.
***This is the first time I used Prima Confections paints. I am so pleased with how creamy and thick these paints are. I am not use to that thickness, so I will need to practice more with learning how to get light to dark shades of one color.***
To add some detail to the card, I added some sparkle to the butterflies by added a layer from the Wink of Stella pen. (It is hard to capture the sparkle in a photo.
To finish the card, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel with the image. The image is then attached to a black cardbase. I felt the card needed a little more detail, so I added a few drops of NUVO black Crystal Drops.
Thank you for stopping by today! Don’t forget, there are a few days left of the Copics Birthday celebration…be sure to join in for your chance to win!
Have a great day!
(at the end of my post I share how I store & transport my Copic markers!)
Eek! I think I’m in love! Today I broke out my new Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Cut Set and created an oober-fun birthday pop-up box! If you haven’t seen this die and how it works, here is Lawn Fawn’s video:
Isn’t that fun?! OK, so for MY box, I pulled out a ton of Lawn Fawn (LF) stamp & coordinating cut sets, and some other LF stamp OR cut sets on their own:
This project was so incredibly fun to make, and I can only imagine all the possible scenes I’ll be able to create using this fun die set!
OK, now I’d like to throw in how I store my Copic markers, and how I transport them.
I have a wonderful collection of Copic Sketch markers; it has taken me almost 3 years to get to this point! When I’m coloring, I want them organized, and easily accessible. After much trial & error while experimenting with different storage solutions, I was finally thrilled when I discovered the Crafter’s Companion Untimate Pens and Markers Storage Units. You can get them in Clear (with a light tint of blue), or Black; I have the Clear ones. Here is an image of my markers and where I keep them on my work table:
(in this pic you can see the neighbor’s house still under construction and the mud pit it’s sitting on!):
Then there are the times when I need to take my markers with me; when that’s the case, I pull out my Copic Empty Clear Storage Cases. They come in different sizes for different Copic markers (Original, Sketch, or Ciao). I have 4 of the cases that hold 72 markers each, and that’s enough to transport my markers.
So that’s it! Make sure you head over to our Copic 30th Birthday Giveaway post because you still have time to enter !
Hi! It is Lisa here with you today, and I’m going to share how to create an ombre look with Copic® Markers. An added bonus to this technique is that you get to use the chisel nib of your markers, and give the brush tips a rest…
To begin my project I started with a panel of Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I then used a group of blue green Copic® Markers, and with the chisel end I just colored lines across the panel. I went lightest to darkest in the middle and back out to lightest. (Colors Used: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG49)
Keep in mind that this step does not need to be neatly done as we will be diecutting the panel and most of the stripes/streaky lines will not be as visible. Next, I die cut the background with the My Favorite Things Star Grid Cover-Up. I then repeated these steps with my Congrats sentiment die cut from Lawn Fawn, only this time I used yellows (Y11, Y15, Y17).
Now since my background cut was very busy I die cut the congrats two more times from white cardstock to layer and add depth to my sentiment. And here is the end result…
Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone.. Holly here today with a super cute interactive slider card featuring the new Farm Friends set from My Favorite Things. Before we get to the card details and a new video I wanted to remind you there’s still time to join our Copic 30th Birthday Giveaway!! You can find all the details in this post here. The contest is open until April 4th.
I started by die cutting a piece of Kraft card stock using the Large Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frame Die set. Then I used the inside piece of the frame to create my scene on. I used a piece of the MFT Watercolor Wash 6×6 Pad for the sky and a piece of the MFT Graphic Grid 6×6 paper for the grass. I used the Rolling Hills, & Grassy Hills dies from MFT to create the scene as well. For the slider area I used one of the Surf & Turf dies and a Spin & Slide disc from MFT as well.
I stamped all the images onto some X-Press it blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating die-namics and cut them out with my Big Shot. Then I adhered all the images to the scene. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered the image panel to a Kraft card base and added the Large Stitched Frame over it with some foam adhesive.
I used the following Copics: YG03, YG25, G07, Y11, Y13, Y15, C00, C1, C3, W00, W1, W3, W5, N4, N6, N8 , N10, YR04, R20, E000, E01, E02, E23, E25 & E27. 0 & Copics Sketch 0.3
Check out the video below for more details on how I created this card.
