Yesterday I colored in the butterfly with Copics -- it was just begging to be colored! :-) I wanted to show you other things you can do with it. I created these two cards by simply stamping the butterfly on both the card and a patterned paper (which I cut out). Easy peasy.....
Supplies: Penny Black Greeting, Neenah Solar White Paper, Basic Grey patterned paper, Black Memento ink
Supplies: A*Muse patterned paper, Savvy Stamps greeting stamp, Tim Holtz die, Our Craft Lounge In Flight set, Hero Arts blue pearls, Creative Impressions black silk ribbon, Black Memento ink, Black Bazzill cardstock
When I saw this set the butterfly blew me away. So different and beautiful. I felt like that image with some Copics would make a simple but elegant card. Just stamp, color in with Copics and cover with Glossy Accents.
Supplies: Hero Arts note card, Penny Black greeting stamp, Copics (YG13, YG17, BG05), Glossy Accents, Black Memento ink
Have you used Our Craft Lounge stamps yet? They are so cute and SOOOO perfect for Copics. Simply Scrapbooks is carrying the line now too so be sure to stop in and see what they have. This set is so darling and I couldn't wait to play with it....
Supplies: Nennah Solar White paper, My Mind's Eye patterned paper, Memory box red pearl stickers, Copics (YG13, YG17, E57, E59, B0000), Hero Arts (greeting), Black Memento Ink
A couple of weeks ago Jennifer and I took a class at Simply Scrapbooks from Jenn Sturkus. We had a great time being students. I'm finally getting around to showing you the cards we made with the new A*Muse Christmas stamps. Cute huh?
Great job with the Liquid Applique, huh? I do that about as well as I ice REAL cookies! :-)
I almost don't want to post what I'm making lately because they are ridiculously simple. I don't have alot of time to create right now but also I am intentionally making some low effort ones to have some lower priced cards in my Etsy Store. Still using those paint chips -- this time to create a masculine card.
Supplies: Kraft cardstock, Papertrey Ink buttons, American Crafts mini-mark greeting rub on. Corner chomper corner rounder, Twine
Tomorrow I am teaching a Copic class at Simply Scrapbooks and I'm so excited. Last time I taught it there we had a blast. And I am expecting the same tomorrow. Copics are just so fun.
I promise you this card took five minutes. I cut the writing off of one of the paint chips I picked up and put a Martha Stewart flower on it. Remember those American Crafts mini-marks rub-ons? Ran across those and put one of their greetings on it. Done! I'm going to remember this paint chip thing when I don't have much time to make a card. Brings so much color to it with zero effort!
I am sort of obsessed with organizing and pitching stuff right now -- everywhere in my house. So I find myself at the hardware store alot as I get the right hooks to hang things, tools to fix things, etc. Today as I wandered through Lowe's I saw a section of paint chips that showed families of complementary colors. So pretty! So I grabbed a few....
Then went home and made this simple card. Just ran it through a Tim Holtz die and added a few things..
Supplies: Hero Arts notecard and greeting stamp (oldie but goodie), Creative Impressions silk ribbon, Versafine black ink (should have used Stazon), Pebbles glittery pearls, Sizzix embossing folder, American Crafts pop dots
