Copic "Earth Day" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 2014 Copic “Earth Day” Blog Hop

 
Earth Day, April 22, marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.  Over 40 years later, Earth Day has become a global event with over 200 million people in over 141 countries getting involved in the fight for a clean environment.

Did you know that Copic markers and inks are environmentally friendly?

•       Copic Various Inks are non-toxic, so there’ no worry about harmful chemicals getting into the environment.

•       Because you can refill your Copic markers when needed, you never have to throw them away!

•       The Copic Various Ink bottles are recycle-able.

All that refilling and recycling means less garbage in landfills and less negative impact on the environment.

 I have an "Earth" themed project to share on this hop! All colored with copic markers in this sweet little one layer card. I used the little tree from MFT's "Out on a Limb" stamped with their new Hot Fudge Hybrid Ink. The sentiment comes from "Inspired by Flowers I".

The ground is colored with E13,25,57 and 49. The sky was airbrushed using BG11,15 and B14, 34.
The sweet little tree using E53,33,57 and G40,46,99.

In celebration of Earth Day 2014, the Copic Education Team and Design Team has gotten together for a hop.  Visit each person’s blog to learn personal tips and tricks for refilling and caring for your markers… and/or some pretty eye candy along the way.

Remember Easter

Pin It
Easter....I do not express myself eloquently in words, but rather art. Easter is the time of year that I REMEMBER....
Christs' suffering and dying for me
The saving faith that I embrace due to Christs' death and resurrection.

 
Easter brings thoughts of lilies and I colored this "Lily" Die-namics from MFT in a neat way. I dropped little drops of R21,30 and 85 copic reinkers on a sheet of vellum and then cut out the blooms with the "Lily" die. I did the same for the green parts using YG25 and 95.

The background is embossing the "Modern Morocco" Die-namics on a white card base. The sentiment is using the "Story Titles" Die-namics for the remember portion and the "Easter Bunny" stamp set for the easter sentiment.

I will be taking the weekend on "unplugged" and enjoying the remembrance with  my family.
Wishing you all a Blessed Easter Weekend! See you all next week!
    

NEW INK!

Pin It
And does this new ink work with copics you ask?.... YES!
Woohoo!
What ink am I chatting about?
The new Hybrid Ink Pads from My Favorite Things!

 
This is the awesome "Black Licorice" that I stamped on X-press it blending card. NO NEED to heat set...just give it a few seconds to dry.  Works fabulous with my copic markers! I did her hair yellow on purpose to really put that black ink to the test!

The "Congratulations" sentiment is from the "Beautiful Baby" set released this month and the image is from "Cupcake Cutie".  The background is stamped with the Sno Cone Hybird ink and the "On the Diagonal" background stamp....and the sentiment is in the new Razzleberry Hybrid ink.

I am SOOO excited about another ink option for my copics...the coverage, clarity and detail of this hybrid ink are great!

Speaking of copics.....Be sure to check out my CERTIFICATION DETAILS PAGE...as it is right up to date! Seattle is coming soon!
    


Release Rewind!


Pin It

 Are you waiting on your MFT goodies for April? Missed the release? HERE is the link to all that is new! Well....here is a little inspiration while you wait! There is more inspiration from the team over on the MFT blog too! Enjoy!

First up are some "Sunny Thoughts".  This new Pure Innocence girl is stamped on X-press it blending card then colored with my copics....a few little notes. Look at the shadow on her face from her umbrella. This is drawn in with BV31. Look also at the shiny street reflection. Remember when coloring in reflections in water that they look best when imperfect and appear to have a bit of movement to them.

The background is totally airbrushed using both the "Cloudy Day" and "Raindrops" stencils.

The smile sentiment is from the other PI release this month "I Pick You"

I used some glossy accents on the umbrella and the ground for the appearance of wet.

Below is the inside....I stamped her again in grapesicle ink, debossed the "Sun, Moon and Stars" Die-namics and added a sweet sentiment.

 Next up....a little Bokeh inspiration! This new set called the "Bokeh Builder"  so I used a fun combination of colors for this card. I used the sunshine ray from the "Sun, Moon and Stars" Die-namics to indicate my light.

Below is a look at the inside using another sentiment from "Bokeh Builder".
Here are all the MFT goodies that I used that are available now!
    

New Product Launch!


Pin It

 The time is here! After a week of being inspired the MFT product launch is here for April! You can find all the new products in the MFT store HERE. You really need to check it out....there is a surprise in there! NEW INK!

I get to spotlight one of the newest Pure Innocence girls....this is "I Pick You"! I stamped her on X-press it blending cardstock and then colored her with my copics :) and used the newest TRANSFORM-ables "Say Hello".

I colored the hello portion with R30 and then backed my paper with a berrylicious cardstock base.

A little look at the inside....I added a sentiment from the set and stamped her in berrylicious ink. All on the other portion of the "Say Hello" TRANSFORM-able Die-namics.

Here is a little different look using the same "I Picked You" stamp set. I stamped her directly on kraft cardstock and colored her with my copics. Using light colors you will still end up with a darker image due to the cardstock color.

For the background I used the new "Cloudy Day" stencil and sponged in some Sweet Tooth ink.

I just adore this little scalloped border piece from the new Blueprints 14 Die-namics....I threaded the holes with the hemp string.

Here is the inside, finishing off the sentiment and using a few more pieces of the Blueprints 14 Die-namics.

Make sure you check out all the Product Launch inspiration over on the MFT  blog!

Here are all the supplies that are NOW AVAILABLE!
