Had to make another quick post for today.  Went out to Langley to Clipper Street Scrapbooking ... they are having a great sale right now ... 30% off all dies plus you can get 40% off one manufacturer.  Picked up a couple of new sets of Spellbinders and a new Memory Box die - looking forward to using them soon!  Decided to use my 40% off on Copics ... I made the plunge!!  Bought eight to start with ... just to see how I like using them.  Came home and started playing with the copics right away!  Definitely need some instruction or practice ... or both! :)  Here's a card using the fun sketch from this week's CAS Challenge at SCS - sketch by Miss Minx (Cary).  Hope you like my first copics card!


Stamp:  Poppy Stems (Stampendous)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Old Olive, Haiku DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!); Copic markers:  YR07, R29, YG95
Accessories & Tools:  Mistletoe ribbon (SU!), adhesives, sticky strip and dimensionals

Stamped the image in Basic Black ink and colored the flowers with copics YR07 and R29.  Colored the stems with YG95.

Mounted the image and the Haiku DP strip on frames of Old Olive cardstock.  Wrapped the Old Olive ribbon around the main image and tied a knot off to one side.  Mounted the main image, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.

Easy and fun card!!  Had so much coloring with the copics!


  1. I have seen several of your cards on SCS, so decided to check out your blog. I am a follower now, love your elegant simple designs and ideas.

  2. Everything you do is beautiful, Loll! But I am curious how you do with the Copics, how you like them. I trust your judgment and I'm still gathering info before I make the plunge ...

  3. You did a great job with your first Copics card! It's beautifully coloured!

  4. Beautiful job on the coloring, beautiful card, too. Looks to me like they will not be a problem for you! I absolutely love my Copics. They are so easy to work with. My favorite coloring tech. used to be Prisma colored pencil, but once I discovered the Copics, I was hooked and don't use my pencil nearly as much anymore.

  5. This is a gorgeous card you made. You did a great job colouring with your Copics.

  6. Absolutely beautiful! Love the colour combination...the layout...the image...just wonderful! --Doris

  7. Loll, I said this on your gallery and I'll say it here as well. You did a great job for the first time! I felt very privileged to have Marianne Walker from Copic International as my instructor when I took my Intermediate certification. She is one extremely talented artist. I love this card. The designer paper and the color of the poppies are magic together. You creating some gems Loll.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you! Loll :)
