Graduation Card

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi Crafters, Valerie here today! Graduation Season is quickly approaching, so here’s a cute one today for maybe an 8th grader or a kindergartner graduating! Heck, I bet even a high schooler would like it.

I couldn’t wait to break this new Pretty Pink Posh die in that I just received, the Stitched Banner Duo set! I was also just as excited to use my new Doodlebug 6×6 Back to School paper pad!

Pretty Pink Posh dies, Doodlebug paper, Paper Smooches stamps & dies, Lawn Fawn ink, Copic markers  {ValByDesign, 2015}

How freaking fun are those images from Paper Smooches for this card? They all worked together perfectly; I loved it! I used these products:

All the background crayons are stamped with Lawn Fawn’s dye inks

The colored images and the sentiment are all stamped with Lawn Fawn’s Black Licorice ink onto X-Press It Blending Card paper, and colored with Copic Sketch markers:

  • Dino: G40, G43, G46 / Boooo
  • Hat: R22, R24, R29
  • Bus: Y13, Y15, Y17 / B000 / C7
  • Pencils: Y35, Y38 / Wood Tip: E11, E13 / Metal Band: No, N2 / Eraser: E04, E17

I added Zig Clear Wink of Stella to the red graduation cap and the wood star embellies. And I added Glossy Accents to the dino’s eyeball.

How to Color White with Copic Markers

Written by carisa_zglobicki. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tips & Tricks, Tutorials

Hi everyone! Carisa here with you today with an adorable baby card featuring The Greeting Farm stamps!

I just adore the Build A Onesie sets and they even have an available coordinating die set now which I just had to have – it really makes fussy cutting so much easier on these smaller images in the set. I used what might be vintage October Afternoon papers at this point. LOL I swear, I have got to stop this hoarding thing. I held on to this paper even when I pretty much sold off my entire craft room a year ago just because I love my boys and my girls love space…so, here I am using it on a baby card. haha Don’t ask! Who knows. Anyway, it’s still super cute and I love the colors.

I’ve also pulled out some My Favorite Things Blueprints dies to build my card. I can’t say enough about how much I love these dies! They are an awesome investment for every single card maker. I used to never use dies and now with these I can’t stop – it also has inspired me to use other dies in combination with them! 

I thought using this set would be a great time to show you how I color, yes, color white using Copic Markers. Sounds funny to say I’m coloring white, but really you still want to give that illusion of depth and dimension to your image so you need to add some shadows and it is really easy to do. I give you three different combinations and two techniques on how I do this in a video. I hope you enjoy and be sure to like, subscribe and share to let me know that you would like to see more videos!

Here is a close up of the onesie – you can see how the subtle shadows of the Warm Grays just around the edge of the image and blended in toward the center really gives some added dimension and you still look at the image as white but it has some pop to it.

For the inside of my card (which I forgot to photograph) I used some sentiment stamps from the Mama Elephant – Just Hatched stamp set. This is another great baby set with some adorable images!

Also, be sure to join in MarkerPop’s current ‘Anything Goes’ challenge for your chance to win another cute Mama Elephant stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
