Happy Bee Day Tiddly Inks Card

Hello my followers and Copic lovers!  Today I am posting a card that was made on special request by my sister in law.  It is a darling Tiddly Inks image called Happy Bee Day!  I just fell in love with this image when I first saw it and couldn't wait to ink it up!  When my SIL saw the image she just had to have a card for a special someone in her life!  So enough about that....onto the card. 

Tiddly Inks Digital Stamp; Happy Bee Day; Copic Coloring; Copic Shading; Copic Cards

My image was colored up with Copics of course which are listed below:

Outfit - YR24, YR21, YR20, E79, E77, E74, E71
Hair - YR23, Y21, E33, E21
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R21 (cheeks)
Flowers - R27, R00, YG67, YG63
Basket - E99, E97, E95, E49
Wings - W0, W00
Grass - YG17, YG67, YG63, YG91, YG93
Butterfly - YR16, Y15, Y11, Y00, W5 (for body)

The papers were from My Minds Eye Lost & Found Sunshine Collection.  I used a MS floral vine punch, Spellbinders fancy tags (on the inside), various flowers from Wild Orchid crafts and my personal stash.  The tulle was a piece from my stash that I colored with a YR23 Copic marker and tied into a bow and placed a rolled rose on top and then put a half pearl in the center.  I also tucked  a small piece of Tim Holtz film strip ribbon into the flowers on the front next to the hat pin. 

Here is a peek at the inside....

Now here is where I am venturing out into something new......

I would like to enter this into the following challenges (something I have never done before):
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Roses and Ribbons
Creative Inspirations Challenge #178 - Bingo  - Ribbon, Flowers, Glitter
Totally Papercrafts #132  - A Sketch
Crafters Companion Challenge 28 - Gold

I hope you like the card and my post was not too long.  If you read this far....thank you!!!!!!!

September 25 12-2pm Copic Cards 101 - basic Copic beginner class

Please see earlier posts for images for the classes from previous months. 

If you cannot make one of these classes I do offer them every month and try to do some day, evening and weekend classes.  It can be difficult at times to get varied times because there are so many different classes going on, so sometimes I can make other arrangements for you to do a one on one class with me if you have previously taken one of my other classes.  If this is something you are interested in because you cannot make one of my classes fit into your schedule, please e-mail me at and let's see what we can work out. 

You can register online for the classes here or in store. 

Have a great evening!

Halloween Card Added to September Classes at Bonney Lake

Hello all!  Just wanted to let you know that I will soon be issuing my September class schedule for September for the Bonney Lake Ben Franklin Store.  I will be adding a new card this month so you can start on those Halloween cards.  I know.....Halloween already?'s closer than you think!  Here is a sneak peak of the card we will be making. 

Copic, Halloween, Cards, Copic Classes, Rubber stamp coloring 
The image I used is from Northwoods Rubber Stmps from Ben Franklin Crafts.  
Copics used were:  E08,YR14,YR16,Y17 (pumpkins) YG63,YG61,Y13 (leaves) E31,E33 (ground) BG0000 (sky).  I added Stickles stardust to the bird, although it doesn't look that great in the picture.  I also colored the pleated organza ribbon with my Copic YR14 marker so it would match my image.  Hope you all have a great evening!

Copic Classes Expanding to Monroe Ben Franklin

It is now official!  Starting in September I will be teaching Copic Classes at the Monroe Ben Franklin Store!  I know it is quite a drive, but I am really excited to be able to share my love of this craft with even more people!  Spread the word.....I would love to see the classrooms filled! I will be starting with 2 Copic Cards 101 Classes in September.  Why wait so long to start you ask?  We need to ensure we have enough time to market the classes and get the word out to all of the customers that may be interested in taking the classes.  I just finished the sample card I will be teaching for the Monroe Store.  It is a beautiful rubber stamp by Inkadinkado called Ribbon and Rose.   I used the following Copic colors:  R89, R39, R29, R27; YG61,YG63,YG67 and added Stickles stardust to the whited flowers.     I will be sending the sample off to the store but wanted to get it on my blog so you all could get a look.  The classes in September are scheduled for:  September 21 1-3pm and September 25 12-2pm.  The cost of the class is $30 plus supplies.  I would love to see you there.  You can register for the class in store or online here

Angelina's Balloons

Hello my fellow Copic lovers!  What a gorgeous day!  I totally forgot to upload this card last week so I figured I'd get it on here now while I am thinking about it.  This is a digital image from Mo Manning called Angelina's Balloons.  She was colored with Copics as usual and embellished with lots of goodies from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I will have to come back and update with the Copic colors I used as I don't have those in front of me right now.  She was such fun to color! 
Copic; Mo Manning digital stamp; Digital Images; Stamps; handmade cards

Here is a peek at the inside of the card. 

Hope you all have a wonderful evening!
