First Time Copic User In The House :)

Apr-21 077Last Saturday, I was at my local scrapbook store that just happens to be owned by a friend of mine.  After standing at the copic rack for 30 minutes or more trying to figure out how the stink to figure out the numbering system, lol, I decided to give up figuring and just get one of each pastel color .. so 1 green, 1 blue, 1 pink etc etc.  My friend, and the owner, happened to walk by so I told her what I was doing.  The look of horror on her face told me that this was a big no-no.  So I ask what I was suppose to do because I didn’t have a clue how they worked.  Well, just my luck that there was a free class scheduled to happen about an hour later.  So I grabbed a few markers in 1 color tone with her help (because you needed 3 for the class), paid for them and went to grab a tea while I waited for the class to start.  Apr-21 078

Can I just tell you now that I love COPICS!!  After the class was over I came home to try my hand at coloring one of my Tilda stamps.  I think I did a pretty decent job, lol.  I can only imagine the $$’s I’ll be spending now trying to build my copic collection up!  (just don’t tell my hubby, lol)

Pretty in Pink

Apr-21 001

I wanted to make a card for my co-worker who just had a baby girl but I didn’t have any solid pink cardstock.  Instead, I improvised and took some white layering cardstock and completely sponged it with pink pigment ink and then mounted it on my white base layer.  I added a frame and used some liquid pearls for the centers of the flower bursts, an epoxy word quote, and a little sheep to make this the perfect card for a baby girl. To finish it off, I sponged a white envelope with the pink pigment ink to make it match.

Have a great day!

Take it or leave it …

I want to let you in on a little secret. I get a lot my card making supplies for free by simply clicking a button. It takes me about 20 minutes a day and I cash in $25.00 worth of points every month for paypal or amazon giftcards. It may not sound like much but, hey, it's FREE money. I’m not here to push this on anyone at all but if you are interested in learning more about this feel free to shoot me an email …
Have a great day!
