OK, on to my card for today; now remember, this was my first time using these markers! And I’ll tell you, I was thrilled with them! You can get a completely different look than mine today; for example, check out Lisa’s project yesterday where she’s also using these markers! Mine is a very solid, dark color, and hers is very light (& gorgeous!).
For my card, I’m using and older set by Altenew (I have just recently become obsessed with Altenew, so my collection is very small, but growing! I’m featuring the Oriental Orchids stamp set (they have a coordinating die set, also).
The colors I used for this card are:
- Pink (the main color for the flowers)
- Carmine Red (the center of the flowers)
- Light Green & Pale Green (the leaves)
- STAX ZIg Zag Square Stackables
- Little Picket Fence Border Cut Set
- Simple Stitched Hillside Borders Cut Set
- Watercolor Wishes 6×6 Paper Pad
(at the end of my post I share how I store & transport my Copic markers!)
Eek! I think I’m in love! Today I broke out my new Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Cut Set and created an oober-fun birthday pop-up box! If you haven’t seen this die and how it works, here is Lawn Fawn’s video:
Isn’t that fun?! OK, so for MY box, I pulled out a ton of Lawn Fawn (LF) stamp & coordinating cut sets, and some other LF stamp OR cut sets on their own:
This project was so incredibly fun to make, and I can only imagine all the possible scenes I’ll be able to create using this fun die set!
OK, now I’d like to throw in how I store my Copic markers, and how I transport them.
I have a wonderful collection of Copic Sketch markers; it has taken me almost 3 years to get to this point! When I’m coloring, I want them organized, and easily accessible. After much trial & error while experimenting with different storage solutions, I was finally thrilled when I discovered the Crafter’s Companion Untimate Pens and Markers Storage Units. You can get them in Clear (with a light tint of blue), or Black; I have the Clear ones. Here is an image of my markers and where I keep them on my work table:
(in this pic you can see the neighbor’s house still under construction and the mud pit it’s sitting on!):
Then there are the times when I need to take my markers with me; when that’s the case, I pull out my Copic Empty Clear Storage Cases. They come in different sizes for different Copic markers (Original, Sketch, or Ciao). I have 4 of the cases that hold 72 markers each, and that’s enough to transport my markers.So that’s it! Make sure you head over to the MarkerPop blog because you still have time to enter in our Copic 30th Birthday Giveaway!
