Challenge #98: Let’s Celebrate!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Challenges, Eye Candy (Projects), Videos

Happy Monday everyone! It’s time for a new Bi-Weekly Challenge and this week’s theme is the 4th of July!!!


Create a 4th of July themed project using your Copics or any of the markers that we carry in the store. You may play along with other challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (more than 10) will result in disqualification for “The Prize”. This week we have a Mystery Box filled with Crafting Goodies!


One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize. Three additional entries will be chosen for the ” Top 3″ based on their amazing coloring skills. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see!

Entries are due by Sunday, July 10th at 12 pm CST. The winner will have TWO weeks to claim their prize. *International winners will be responsible for shipping costs if they choose to claim their prize* As always, have fun.. We can’t wait to see what you create!

 For today’s card I created a fun 4th of July card that would be perfect for a Summer Party Invite. I’m using the Patriotic Owl stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs and some Patriotic Picnic Papers from Doodlebug Designs.


I started out by stamping the Owl image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock and then I colored it in with Copics. I die cut the panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die set from My Favorite Things. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Super Script set using some VersaFine Black ink and my Mini Misti Tool. I die cut two piece of the pattern paper using the same die.


I created a top folding White card base and I adhered the Pattern Papers tilted so they would stick out behind the image panel. Then I adhered the image panel with some Foam and my ATG. For a bit of Sparkle I added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image and some Sparkling Clear Mixed Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.


Check out the video below for more details on how I created these cards.

I used the following Copics to color the images: 

YG21, YG03, YG17, E53, E55. E57, E59, R22, R24, R27, Y02. Y15, Y17, Y38, C3, C1, C00 & 0 Colorless Blender.
