Fun Fishes

Friday, August 21st, 2020

Hello all Kia here with you today to share some “Copic Bleed”.

This is done by Copic colouring a page (I used a Colouring Book) with cardstock tucked firmly underneath your colouring piece, so the bleed from the colouring bleeds through to the cardstock, as shown above. I used my Make Art Stay-tion to keep the pieces together using the magnets.

For my colouring I used Copic Sketch Markers in B12, B32, B16 and G14 for the background. For the fish I used Y08, Y38 and YR68; BG11, BG15, BG45 then V12, V15 and V17.

The colouring page is a thinner paper, so I attached mine to a piece of 100lb cardstock. You do not need to have a colouring book to do this technique. You can use your favourite stamp and stamp with Copic friendly ink on paper such as Hammermill Premium copy paper and add the cardstock underneath.

Once I was finished with the colouring I die cut the “wishes” sentiment from a piece of 120lb. white cardstock, then coloured with Glitter Markers in purple.

I attached the piece to my white cardbase, then attached the “wishes” sentiment using Nuvo Adhesive.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment on the piece of “bleed cardstock” using VersaFine Clair Ink in Fantasia.

Returning to the card front I added air bubbles using Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze.

I hope you will give this technique a try and that you have enjoyed the process. Following are Affiliate Links for the products that I have used on this card, at no extra cost to you.


Penny Black – Copic Coloring and Heat Embossing

Saturday, February 29th, 2020

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  Sandi MacIver here and today I have a New Video Penny Black – Copic Coloring and Heat Embossing to share with you, AND, a Shopping special to celebrate LEAP YEAR.  Check that out at the end of this post.

Copic Markers and heat Embossing

Many of us don’t like to use our Copic Markers on embossed images.  Embossing powder is made from shards of plastic and even though we heat emboss it to stick to our card stock, it’s still sharp, and can tear up the tips of our Markers.  I love the look though, so I have a fun and simple work around for you.

Brightly colored images look fabulous on darker colored card stock, but as you know, that is not possible to achieve with Copics, so this trick solves that problem too.

Copics used for today’s Project:  Pinks:  RV 10, 11, 13 and 34   Greens:  YG03 and 17 and the background color is BG13, as close as I could get to matching the Gina K Designs Turquoise Sea card stock I used for the project.  All items are linked below for your convenience.

I think this card would make a fabulous Easter Card as well.  In my mind, these flowers are Magnolias that bloom around here in the spring.  When I was little I used to call them Tulip trees as they reminded me of tulips.  You could change out the sentiment to an Easter greeting and add a small gold cross, or a fuzzy white bunny. It would also make a great spring birthday card.

Here is the video walking you through the creation of the card, the technique and I also do a short lesson on the Copic Flicking Technique for the flowers.  You can watch it here or in HD over on my YouTube channel.

Quick & Easy Thank You Card

Monday, February 24th, 2020

We’ve all been there – you need a card quickly, but don’t have much time! Hello friend – Deb here from the Design team, and today I’m sharing a quick & easy thank you card that you can pull together in a jiffy. Another way of using this card is to create it in advance, but just leave off the sentiment. Then, it’s ready for when you need it – just add the sentiment appropriate to the situation at hand!

COZY COMPANIONS THANK YOU

Who doesn’t love a bear in a cozy chair, with a mug of hot chocolate?! This cutie is ready say ‘thank you’, or even just thinking of you.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

Wouldn’t you just love to join him in a cup of cocoa? I would!

CARD DETAILS

On a small piece of white cardstock, stamp the bear image from the MFT Cozy Companions set in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Colour in the image using Copic markers. For the chair, I chose greens G09 & G03; B00 & B02 for the sweater; E29 & E37 browns for the bear and Y28 (which is a Lionet Gold) for the stool & chair legs. Next, use the coordinating Cozy Companions dies to die cut the bear.

For the background, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a smaller light blue panel, and a larger white panel. Use a blending tool to add some Salty Ocean Distress ink around the edges of each panel.  Use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Penny Black Sentiment Collection in the  upper right corner. Now, layer the pieces together. Glue the white panel onto a light blue card base, then attach the blue panel & the die cut bear with foam tape.

Quick and Easy Thank You Card

I think that the die cutting, along with the stitched layers adds just the right amount of interest & depth for this card. And no one needs to know how easy it was to pull together! I think that the part that took me the longest was deciding on colours.

SUPPLIES

You will love the adorable scenes that  you can create with the MFT Cozy Companions stamp set. And I’m always the first to say that you should always get the coordinating die set – it just adds so much interest to a project when you add dimension.
