Copic Markers Class

I took a three hour copic marker class today at Toyrific in Wooster. It was awesome!!!! Sally Lynn MacDonald taught the class and I want to learn more, more, more.
Can you imagine taking a class on colored markers?? If you are a crafter, I highly recomment it.
Have a safe weekend.

Thank You!

This embossed card is hard to see. It is the harlequin pattern and really looks nice in real life.

Get Well Card

I love how the pastel cards look with pearls added as an accent. I think they look so classy. The card is embossed with the cuttlebug.

Orange & Navy Embossed card

Gisha Girl

This card was fun but very intricate to make. I stamped the card and used my new copic markers to color. After doing it TWICE, I noticed the black by her ear bled into the flesh color. I used mulberry paper for the mats. Other than the bleeding, I am very pleased on how it turned out.
A big thank you to my friends Shelley and Lori for all their input on this card!

Plain & Simple

Flower is embossed on shiny paper.

Harlequin Card

I don't know if you can see the embossing on the black part or not. Is is a very pretty harlequin design. I love the saying on this card!

Navy & Red

I found this navy and red ribbon that just ties the card colors together perfectly.

This is the "corrected" version, maybe if I chalk the white mat is will be better.
I need to do something else on this card but haven't figured out what yet. I do like the color combo.
The Pansy is a Stampin' Up stamp and the nestability mat is a new die from Spellbinder.

I like the colors in this paper. They are feel good colors. I used a nestability die to cut the mat and the flower is a hero arts. The lace is also from Spellbinders.

My Favorite Card!

I love the rubber stamp and the colors on this card. I colored using my copic markers. I do have a lot more to learn about coloring with them! In fact, I am going to take a class on using them the end of May~~

Graduation Card for my Grandson

I went to a three day crop this weekend and in between talking, shopping and eating, I did make a few cards.
This card, called Throwing Hats, is for our Grandson who is graduating June 5.

Cuttlebug and Vellum Cards

I love the ease of the cuttlebug and the cuttlebug embossing folders when you need a card or in this case 6 cards in a hurry! I just cut my card stock, my vellum, used my Martha punch on the side (hard to see), embossed, added the pearls, sprayed on the adhesive and in a very short time these lovelies were finished. I have known I had to make these cards for 2 months and they are due today.
I am going to Scrapbookers Paradise for a three day crop. We have such fun there and the food is awesome. I am so disappointed that none of my friends are going though! Sometimes life just gets in the way!
Have a blessed weekend!
