Goldberg Inspiration!

Pin It
Happy Friday! Did anyone catch the new "Goldberg's" this week?

 
As a child of the 80's it is on our PVR "must watch" list....what a hoot! If you didn't, you really should and then you would totally get the inspiration behind this card....

First up, I airbrushed the background with my copic BG72 and my "On the Diagonal" stencil from MFT.

The cassette itself is a combo of stamps and dies. It is the Cassette Die-namics paired up with the "Playlist" stamp set from MFT. It is an 80's theme...but I made it modern with the colors.

I have been doing a lot of traveling and Copic certification and workshop teaching (which is why it has been quiet on my blog). Looking forward to more crafting time nearer to the end of October.

Are you looking for a class? The LAST CLASSES of 2014 are up on my Copic Details page and you can also find them on the COPIC site. I am heading to my stomping grounds in Vancouver next weekend! Hope to see you there :)
    


Fall Love

Pin It
Happy Monday! It is sure starting to feel like fall and I love it! Warm during the day and then cool nights :)

 
 A quick little card to share with you today in one of my favorite color palettes!

The wood stump and sentiment are from the "Wood you be mine" set from MFT and the sweet little acorns are from the "Fall Foliage" set.

The little bird is actually from a hero arts bird trio (LP169) from a few years back. I colored him up with my copics directly on kraft cardstock. Adding a little bit of pencil for the white highlight along his back. The copics are E21,23,25 YG21,95 and YR04 for the beak. 

For the finishing touch, I added the little acorns sprinkled the ground with some gold glitter too.

I am off to Calgary this weekend....for a fun FULL COPIC workshop day! Woohoo! I will say that I am relieved that their snow storm hit last week and not this week.....

There are some new venues for COPIC Workshops/Certifications that have been put up this week! Be sure to check out my updated Copic Details page



    

A new season....Fall! New Copic Class Venues Too!

Pin It
 This is my favorite time of year! Warm sun in the afternoon and cool nights (perfect for the hot tub). I have had a wonderful summer vacation and was excited to get back at my studio and do a little crafting :)

 
I decided to head on over to one of my favorite spots for inspiration and that is Splitcoaststampers.
...and played along with today's "ways to use it" challenge.....fall leaves.

I used watercolor paper for my card base and then laid a piece of vellum stamped with the "woodgrain background". The circle cut out is from the "Blueprints 12" Die-namics.

The pretty fall leaf and acorns are from the "Fall Foliage" stamp set along with the coordinating Die-namics.

I did a little Copic airbrushing on the leaf with Y32, Y38 and Y28 markers to add a slight variation in the colors. Not too much....we aren't all the way into fall yet!
I have added a few gold trim accents....the wire and the glitter.

Looking for Copic classes? We have announced another few venues for fall!!!! Looking for something on the west coast? I will be in Calgary, Vancouver and Portland this fall :)
You can see all the details HERE on my updated Copic page.

Thanks for stopping by!
    


Copic "Watercolor"

Pin It

Hi! We just enjoyed a wonderful long weekend here in BC! A ONE LAYER, simple card for you today showcasing one of my favorite things....copics! You wouldn't think that flower is done with markers...well it is done with copic marker various ink refills and my waterpen filled with blender solution. 

I love the pretty watercolor looking results of this technique....but first I need to describe how I got all that texture!

I did my stamping first, using "Birthday Chalkboard Greetings" and  "Delicious Birthday" from MFT! I stamped them in the Black Licorice Hybrid ink. Now....for the texture. I prepared the die cut sandwich for embossing on my machine. I then laid down my "Rose with Overlay" Die-namics, A piece from the "Blueprints 9" for the sentiment and then laid over all of this the "Grid" stencil. I ran it through my machine a couple of times to ensure deep impressions. 

For the copic "watercolor" I used YR68, YR31 and R05 Various inks. 

Are you signed up for a Copic Certification or Workshop? Some new locations were just added....Vancouver BC and Calgary are for my fellow Canadians :)

Check out the full list HERE on my updated Copic page. Hope to see you soon!


    

Lil' bits of ribbon

Pin It
 I decided to play along with today's clean and simple challenge over on SCS! It has been a LONG while since I have had the chance! We were challenged to use some of our ribbon bits and scraps to create a project.

I created this project for my sweet little niece....that needs a little hug as she broke her arm yesterday. Poor thing!

This whole tag is ribbon! I added adhesive on a piece of cardstock and then lined up the ribbons and then put it through my die cut machine with the "Pierced Tag STAX Die-namics". This made a nice clean edge to the ribbon....so nice! 
The sweet little pure innocence image is "Sending Big Hugs" from MFT! I even added a little ribbon to her skirt :) I colored her up with my copic markers....these little gals are always fun to color!

Speaking of coloring....Check out my updated class page for Certifications and Workshops coming your way!
