Happy Birthday Pop-Up Box

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Anything But a Card, Eye Candy (Projects)

(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:

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press IT paper, and colored them with my Copic markers

I used papers from 2 new Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pads to decorate the box: Perfectly Plaid and Watercolor Wishes.

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 !



Ombre Technique Created With Copic Markers

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

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!

Translation: Happy Easter!

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

Hi MarkerPop Peeps! It’s Valerie here today, and with Easter quickly approaching, I’m mixing old and new (well, “newER” anyway) Lawn Fawn products today for a sweet and fun Easter card!

The adorable chicks and all their sweet accessories com from Lawn Fawn’s Chirpy Chirp Chirp set that was released in February of 2016 (seems like just yesterday!). I stamped them with Lawn Fawndamentals Black Licorice ink onto X-Press Ink paper, and colored them with my Copic Sketch markers.

All the adorable die cut pieces are all Lawn Fawn Cut Sets.  Here are the sets I used and for which pieces:

All of the solid colors are actually white paper colored with Lawn Fawndamentals inks and a couple Distress inks; you can see all the specific ones I used in the Supply List below.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a GREAT day!

Copics On Solid Stamped Images

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a fun technique to share with you today that can take your stamping to the next level.  Now, before I begin I want to state that if you don’t want to color your solid stamped images in, that is totally fine I don’t always do it or even think to do it on mine.  But, as a refresher or if you are looking for one more way to add depth and detail to those solid images using your Copic® Markers…

As you can see I’ve labeled the right side as no Copic® Markers used, and the left side as the Copics® used side.  Isn’t it cool to see the difference when they are lined up side by side?  Any who, these images are from the newly released Fab Flowers by Lawn Fawn.  They are super cute as is, and even thought they have a second “layer” that I have stamped on each image, you can still create more depth by shading the images in with Copics®.  Now keep in mind that these images were stamped in Copic® friendly ink, because we definitely do not want to cause damage to our precious markers, so make sure you are aware of what ink you’ve stamped your images in first.  I have used Memento Dye Inks: Rose Bud, Love Letter, Pear Tart, Cottage Ivy, Lulu Lavender, Elderberry, London Fog.  Copic® Markers used include: R24, R29, RV14, RV23, RV25, YG13, G14, V000, V12, V15, W3, W5.  Tips for this technique: Start by using your darkest marker choice first, this way if you go a little too heavy you can lightly up your coloring by going over it with a lighter marker.  Also, don’t be afraid to experiment and maybe even try coloring with a different, but complimentary color to the color you’ve already stamped your image in.

Since I had already colored the images up, I had to create a project with them…

I started by fussy cutting my stamped and colored images, and then created my frame with Lawn Fawn’s Stax Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Dies and Lawn Fawn Patterned Paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love to see what you create using this technique!  Also, Don’t forget to get your name entered in the amazing giveaway going on here right now!
