Copic Marker Classes with frosting on top....

Pin It

Happy Monday! Lots of updates to share with you today!

First up is this little sweetie called "Sweet Birthday Wishes" from MFT....she is a new release for July!

I stamped her directly on kraft cardstock and then paper pieced everything except her hair and cupcake base. The papers are from Melissa Frances.

I colored her up with my copic markers...being sure to add shadows and dimension to her paper pieced dress.

The sentiment comes from a new set from MFT called "Delicious Birthday"....PERFECT for all things BIRTHDAY!

There are some new locations with released applications this week! Did you see we added Copic Certifications to Alexandria VA and new Workshops to Philadephia, Boston and Calgary!!!! You can check out my updated copic class page HERE....or head right to the source of copic class info HERE!

 Fun little technique card to show you today....and a little step by step to walk you through my process. This is very much a ONE LAYER card.

Let's walk through it.....
 I cut the "Layered Umbrellas" Die-namics from a post it note and placed it on my card base.
 I then masked off the edges of that umbrella with more post it notes, going right to the bottom of my card.
 I then inked up the "Typewriter Text" background with some Spearmint Hybrid ink and inked up my card front.
 I then did a base of COPIC airbrushing with BG13 still leaving my mask in tact.
 I then laid the "Raindrops" stencil over my cardfront and taped it down. Airbrushing with BG18. I moved the stencil to add some more raindrops and then airbrushed again.
Here is a look at the very "One layer" nature of this card.  For the umbrella itself....I painted with a little grapejelly and grapesicle refill and a bit of shimmer mist. I cut the remaining pieces from steel grey cardstock.

The sentiment is from the "Blue Skies Ahead" set (altered a little to fit my space).

Thanks for stopping by!

Things are changing for may have seen announced on the MFT blog that I have decided to say a sweet farewell.

It is time for me to take a little step back from deadlines and create....just to create. I love MFT and the MFT family so this was a TOUGH decision, but I do feel a good peace about it.

I do want to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU to Kim van der Sanden. You have been so wonderful to me and it has been a complete delight to work with your fabulous goodies! 

You will still see me here regularly on my blog, creating as always....just a little more on my timetable :)

So to say a sweet farewell to the design team I created todays' card using some AWESOME MFT goodies!

I started off with "Story Titles" at the top making my white (memories) panel. I then copic airbrushed BG72 with the "Petal Circles" stencil.

I then added the new "Ampersand" and "Lots of love" Die-namics. You can see how I stacked up a few layers of cardstock to make the "Ampersand" stand out!

I will miss you MFT....but I won't be far away!
Memories and Love to you all!
