Introducing Learning Copics with MarkerPOP & Sami

Written by Samantha Peyton. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials

Hi everyone! My name is Samantha, & you can call me Sam, Samantha, or Sami!

I missed getting my intro up for y’all last week due to some technical difficulties so I wanted to take a second & introduce myself before we get crafty.

ABOUT ME:
I’m Sami, a 20-something, totally obsessed papercrafter. My husband and I recently moved to Illinois for his first job after grad school. We are loving life with our 4 beautiful dogs & 1 very loud canary. I am a full-time crafty person -running an active crafty blog & an online store. I’ve been Copic coloring since 2009 & I was MarkerPop’s first ever design team member & then design team leader. I love MarkerPop so much I wanted to come back to the team. Copic coloring is among my most favorite paper crafty things to do. I also very much enjoy scrapbooking, Project Life, card making, making 3d items, using my Silhouette Cameo. I love everything involved in crafting -the color combos, the layout design, sharing my ideas, the new products, learning new techniques, etc. I share projects & tutorials daily on my blog & make videos regularly.

I’m here as a Video Maker! I LOVE making crafty videos and have two dedicated crafty Youtube channels. One just for Copic Tutorials & one for Stamping & Scrapping. I hope that my Copic videos will inspire you to use your Copics even more!

Don’t forget to take a peek at the end of this post for an awesome GIVEAWAY!

NEW VIDEO SERIES:
Today, I am kicking off our new video series: Learning Copics with MarkerPOP! Every other week, I will be sharing a new Learning Copics video with you!! I am really excited to start this new series. We’re going to start out with the very very basics and build up to some more advanced and intricate lessons.

To start things off, today’s video is just a very basic 2 color blending tutorial. If you’ve been Copic-ing (he he, yay for making up words!) for long, you are probably a pro at basic 2 color blending already. If you are newer to Copics, then practice this technique a bunch & make it a go-to technique in your coloring arsenal. This is a very important foundation technique that other coloring techniques will build upon.

In this tutorial, I used the following Copic colors:

  • Y13, Y15, BG02, and BG05

    The elephant card is darling. I love those colorful polka dots. I never thought about trimming off part of label. Going to try that.

    Your card is very cute! Copics are my favorite things to color with. I will watch for other tutorials. I am always looking for better coloring techniques-especially hair and clothes.

    thanks for the instructions. I’m just getting into using Copics and I need all of the help I can get. I’ve never been very artistic when it comes to painting or coloring so I’m hoping you will give me lots of tips so I do a better job. Glad I found this site.

    Thanks for the info on refilling your ink pad, i don’t think I put enough ink in mine when I refill it, so it was good to see what you do.. Cute card too.
