Copic Coloring, Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Coloring Skin Tones with Copic Markers | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project | The Greeting Farm: Miss Anya Buckles Stamp

Hi crafty friends! Thank you for stopping by. My focus for today’s card projects is a new stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Miss Anya Buckles. This is my design team stamp from the Not 2 Shabby Shop for the month of February, and I adore these darling images! I decided I wanted to color them in with my Copic markers. I love coloring various skin tones and hair with these alcohol markers. For each girl I’m using a different skin tone combination and hair combination. The size of these stamp images are great for practicing coloring skin tones and hair with your Copic markers or  whatever medium you choose.

If you’d like to pick up this stamp set, I’ve listed the links below, and I have a 10% off coupon code for you for the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card #1: Friend in Me Card

I colored in this card with the following list of Copic markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E11; Hair: R43, E11, YR21; Shirt: N4, N1; Sweater: YG61, YG63; Skirt: R20, R43, R35; Boots: E31, E35, E37

For the back ground I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink over a brick stencil. I distressed this panel by flicking water onto it, and then dabbing it up with a tissue. I put the stencil back on and ink blended more of the Victorian Velvet ink to make the water distressing darker.


Card #2: Hey Card

Copics: Skin: E23, E25, E27; Hair: V01, V17, E49, W3; T-shirt & Socks: V01, V17; Yellow jacket: Y11, Y13, Y17; Blue skirt: B21, B23, B45; Boots: N5, N3, N2

On a panel of Bristol Smooth Card Stock I ink blended on some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink.

Flowers: V01, V15, V17; Leaves: YG13, YG17; Yellow buds: Y13, Y17


Card #3: So Grateful for You Card

Copics: Skin: E33, E11, E51; Hair: Y27, Y23, Y21, RV04; Pants: B21, B23, B45; Shirt: RV02, RV04, RV06; Boots: E57, E53

On the background I used a cute stencil from MFT, and I ink blended on some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink as well as Picked Raspberry.

All these cards were so much fun to create! I hope you enjoy watching my YouTube video below. The link will take you to my YouTube channel if you’d like to watch it there.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!

Copic Coloring, Floral Cards

Splash of Color Card (2018) | Studio Katia & Copics

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I have another floral card for you today. I love creating cards with flowers, and for this card I used a creative stamp set from Studio Katia called Floral Trimmings. This set comes in two panels or two long narrow stamps that you can stamp together, as I did here, or separate to trim the edge of your card.


The stamps fit together beautifully; however, if you want the gap between them to be unnoticeable, you have to stamp them one at a time. It creates a coloring page that you can paint in using whatever medium you’d like. I colored this card with Copic markers.


This took over an hour to color in, and I didn’t color it all at once. I’m never able to sit at my craft table very long before one of my kids needs help with something. Lol! I didn’t mull over my color selection; I mostly just grabbed colors out of my container and hoped for the best. However, you can’t go too wrong with florals.


I had a hard time deciding what to do with my card panel once I finished my coloring. I went through my box of scrap paper to see what colors of card stock I wanted to use with it. I finally decided on a piece of grey card stock for my sentiment and card base. I didn’t want my card base or sentiment banner to compete will all the color on my card.

I cut out the panel with a faux-stitched frame die, popped up the frame with foam tape, and then adhered my colored panel flat onto the card base with some tape runner.

A helpful little trick to adhere your frame evenly onto your card base, is to only half peel off the release paper, position it on your card base, and then pull off the release paper. It’ll make more sense when you watch my video. I learned that great tip from Therese from Lost In Paper. Thanks, Therese!


I also glued on some rainbow confetti! Just couldn’t help myself–this mix from Studio Katia is gorgeous. I do like the confetti better than the sequins–no holes.


Here is the video I filmed for this card! You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel in HD.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Magic Slider Cards | Copic Markers

Happy Friday to you all!  I have some fun cards to share today.  I’m using a die set from Lawn Fawn called Magic Color Slider.  I actually won this die set from Jennifer McGuire’s blog last December.  This was the first time I won anything, and I was so excited!!  Thank you, Jennifer!!  The set includes three different window frame dies, so I decided to create a card for each window!


This is what the set looked like before I opened it and started snipping the dies apart.


It took some time to chose the colors of cardstock I wanted to use and die cut them, but here are my cards all cut out.  It looks complicated, but once you create one, you get the hang of it, and it’s smooth sailing from there.


I used a Mini Misti to stamp the images onto Neenah White 110 pound cardstock using MFT’s Extreme Black Ink.  While the images where on the Misti door, I switched out the cardstock for a piece of acetate the same size and stamped the images again.  I used Stazon Ink to stamp on the acetate.  I used two different inks because Stazon is not Copic friendly, and I wanted to color all these images with Copics.


Once all my coloring was finished, I started to assemble my cards.  I put dot liner on the back of the colored panels, aligned them through the window, and then pressed them into place.  To align the acetate, I put down skor tape around the inside of the windows, peeled off the release paper, placed the acetate over the colored images so they aligned perfectly, and then closed the frame onto it.


Before sealing the sliders together, I made sure to put in my white slider piece, and then adhered the two sides together with more skor tape.  I pulled the white slider up and down a few times to get it slide smoothly.  These cards can be so addictive to play with!!  Lol!!  I added my sentiments and embellishments on the outside of the slider elements and then adhered them all onto card bases.  Some crafters don’t attach them onto card bases, which is fine, but I wanted to make them into mini cards and enable them to stand up.


Here is the video I created for these cards!  You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD.

Thank you for visiting!  Have a nice weekend!!
