Coloring with Copic Markers

Coloring with Markers Challenge – Diversity of Copic

Ok, this post is going to be a long one…because I decided to participate in the Stamping with Markers Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I don’t have just one card…I have a gift pack of cards! The rules are really, really simple. You can use any kind of markers you want – at least that’s what it looks like to me! Crayola, Copic, Marvy…pull out your markers and play along. You’ll be glad you did…cause the prizes are amazing!

This challenge inspired me to consider a variety of techniques one can use when coloring with copic markers. Hold on to your seat…cause you’re going to get an education!

Coloring with Copic  Markers – Gift Card Set

I decided to create a gift card set. People LOVE to receive homemade cards that they can give away. I’ve had several people tell me that someone has to be extra special to receive one of the cards from my gift card sets. People are actually hording homemade cards. How sweet!

homemade gift card set

Above you can see the four cards I created and the folder in the back that holds them all. Besides using copic markers, all the cards are created with brown card base. Brown has been around a long time…but I’m still in love with it!

The cards measure 3.5″ x 4.25″. This allowed me to get three cards out of a single sheet of 8.5″ x 11″.

Coloring with Copic Markers – Shading (The Folder / Pocket Card)

The folder has two pockets and each pocket holds two mini cards and mini envelopes.

pocket card with flowers colored with copic markers

This pocket card illustrates the most basic use of copic markers…to blend colors. I stamped everything in black. The flowers are colored with various shades of orange and red. The leaves are colored with greens. I also added a bit of blue to outline the stamped images. Very subtle.

The pocket card started out as a 7″ x 9″ piece of cardstock. All folded up, it measures 4 3/8″ x 5 5/8″. This gives me a 1/4″ spine. Each pocket is 3/16″ deep. The inside pocket is 1 5/16″ tall. I know…crazy measurements. I just eyeballed it as I created it…otherwise the measurements would be more friendly.

Coloring with Copic Markers – Background Paper (Happy Birthday)

Copic markers make beautiful background papers. I will illustrate with this happy birthday card.

copoic background paper

As you can see, I colored the flower using the technique above. Meaning, I stamped the flower with black ink, then colored it by blended several shades of red (and yellow and orange for the center). I cut the flower out and adhered with puffy tape.

To create the background, I simply took a wide copic marker and colored a piece of white paper green. Then I dropped several drops of Various Ink (blender solution) on the green paper. It created nice texture. I also sprayed it with a mini mister filled with Various Ink.

Coloring with Copic Markers – Bleach Technique (Happy Father’s Day)

The next card utilizes a “bleach technique”…though no bleach was used.

bleach technique with copic

The first step is to create “bleachable” paper. I colored a piece of white paper with a brown copic marker (using the chisel tip). Then, I put a tissue on a plate and drenched it with Various Ink. Then took my stamp and got it wet…much like you would ink a stamp with a stamp pad. Then I stamped directly onto the brown paper. The various ink turned the brown area white like a “bleach technique”.

With my stamped image “bleached” into the paper, I used various colors of copic markers and colored it in making sure to leave some of the “bleached” area visible. I used one green, red, blue and grey (to create a shadow) marker. Then simply stamped the greeting in black on top and added a couple of gems.

Coloring with Copic Markers – Coloring Directly on Stamps (Happy Mother’s Day)

Yes, you can color your stamps with copic markers. These last two cards will illustrate that.

coloring stamps with copic markers

I created a background paper by stamping a music score using Distress Ink. Then I colored this winter flower stamp with a pink, light green, dark green, and blue copic marker. Because copic markers are alcohol based, the ink dries quickly preventing you from being able to stamp it right away. You must get the image wet by misting the stamp with Various Ink. 

Beware, mist the stamp too much and your image will be very blurry. Don’t mist it enough and it won’t stamp the entire image. Definitely a technique that takes a bit of practice. I thought this stamp lended itself to a more blurry look. (I cleaned the red rubber stamp by misting it well with Various Ink and drying it on a rag).

I framed the white cardstock with pink. Stamped the greeting in brown. Added a ribbon. Oh, and distressed around the flower with Distress Ink using a blender tool. And I couldn’t resist adding a few gems!

Coloring with Copic Markers – Inking Your Outline Stamps with Copic Markers (Thanks Card)

This technique is similar yet different than the one above. I colored the stamp with a copic marker. But this image was also colored in using copic markers.

coloring outline stamps with copic markers

I once heard Marianne Walker (copic rep) say that flowers (and other items in nature) do not have a black oultine…except in the stamping world. Well, stamped images no longer need to have black outlines! I colored this flower stamp with a red copic marker, misted it, then stamped it. Both the pink and red flower were stamped with a red copic marker. The yellow flower was stamped with an orange copic marker. (Caution: the red marker stained my acrylic stamp. It stained it, but did not ruin it).

So, once the images were stamped, I used traditional coloring techniques to color the flowers with copic markers. As you see, I created a background paper by stamping large flowers with white ink. Then die cut the letters for “thanks”.  Again, gems finish this guy off.

Coloring with Copic Markers – Give It a Try

I hope this post was helpful and inspires you to use your copic markers in a variety of ways. I will try to put a video up on some of these techniques. It’s way more fun to see it in action.  No promises as to when those videos will show up, though.

Card Making Fun Raising Event

Card Making Fun Raising Event for A Scarlet Cord

All you need is love…so sing the Beatles. And so says the Bible (Matthew 22:37-39):

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind…Love your neighbor as yourself.

We all long to be loved. And life is enriched when we love others. I’m blessed to be part of a great family of Christians at Joyland Church who have accepted God’s love for themselves and who want to express that love to others. So it was a great honor to work along side my friend Vickie McKnight to create a special fun raising event for A Scarlet Cord – a ministry dedicated to letting prostitutes in Colorado Springs know that they are loved.

card making fun raiserHere’s the room all setup for the fun raiser. Yes, I realise it should be spelled “fund raiser” but we had so much fun…so it was a fun raiser. Let me point out a few things we did fo setup…

  1. Each table has an handmade tool caddy. The caddy has all the community supplies such as tape, scissors, gems, etc. I also have the card that will be made at this station clipped to the caddy.
  2. There is a handmade trash box that matches the tool caddy. I love a clean work station. Everyone cleans up after themselves before they move to the next station.
  3. There is a folder that contains all the material everyone needs for every station. All the materials are pre-cut. This includes, paper, ribbon, envelopes, etc. They will carry this with them to every table.
  4. Under each folder is scratch paper. The scratch paper stays at the station. So everyone has something to work on.

place card and decorated water bottleVickie and I created place cards for everyone. The name plates are double-sided. The reason for this was so that everyone could find their seat and learn the names of everyone around them.

To make these, I got my craft mat wet with water and pink ink refill. Then I laid white paper on that. When that was dry, we used a blending tool to fill in the white areas with pink distress ink. We stamped some hearts in red. Then hand wrote the names with a black sharpie.

I say we…but Vickie did most of this! They measure 1.5″ tall x 4″ wide.

I created water bottles with three different words. The one in the picture says “loved”. But we also had bottles that said “cherished” and “precious”.

I used the same technique to create the paper to cover the label on the water bottle. Then I cut out a QuicKutz heart on my Cuttlebug and tied it to the bottle. So each bottle had a dangling heart.

The labels for the water measured 1.5″ tall x 8.5″ wide.

Card Making Fun Raising Event – What We Made

four stamped cards and folderSo what did everyone make at the event? We made four stamped cards and a folder to put them in. The tall card on the right with the orange flowers is the folder. It has pockets inside to hold the four cards and envelopes.

Most of the stamps I purchased from the “value” section of the store. So they were a $1 each! All four cards were made with these. This included stamps from Studio G and Inkadinkado. The one exception is the big flower stamp and the definition which are Stampin’ Up sets.

I used distress ink for most of the cards. The black was VersaFine Onyx Black. Love both of these inks!

Each card has ribbon and gems. I just can’t help myself. That does bring the cost of each project up a bit…but everyone seemed to love those elements. So definitely a keeper.

Card Making Fun Raising Event – Card Close Ups

Ok, want you to see some of the details on the cards. Here goes.

homemade folderThis folder is 4.5″ wide by 5.5″ tall when all folded closed. The cards inside all measured 3.5″ x 4.25. That allowed me to use slightly smaller envelopes – 4 bar (3 5/8 x 5 1/8.

This card is super simple…but it can be easy to miss a step or two on it. This turned out to be one of the longer stations.

First, stamp the definition in black. Then you’ll know where to stamp the flowers. Leave enough space so you can tie a ribbon below the definition.

Second, ink up your background flower in orange. Then stamp it on a piece of scratch paper before stamping it on the white cardstock. Then stamp the flower outline on top of the background. Repeat this process for two more flowers (or more if you have a bigger space or want more flowers).

Repeat the process with green ink and leaves. Stamp as many leaves as you want.

Then frame with kraft colored cardstock. Add gems and ribbon. Tape to the brown folder.

It’s not pictured here, but the back also has a single orange flower. We stamped some text on top of the flower in the back that says “Hand Stamped By:” or “That’s All She Stamped”.

The stamps are all Stampin’ Up. Ink is Distress Ink and VersaFine. Paper was all purchased at Xpedx.

wish big boy birthday cardBelieve it or not, this “Wish Big” stamp gave me the most grief. I struggled because I didn’t know how many people were going to come….so I didn’t want to use any decorative paper. The stamps I had on hand had to pull double duty and create the background and foreground.

I decided to create a simple boy birthday card. So I selected the teal/blue ribbon and cardstock.

The teal is cut into the shape of a tag to give it some interest. I also stamped the greeting in black on the brown cardstock. Note that the image is stamped near the edges and the image runs off the page. A very common technique in stamping.

Of course, I added gems. I really couldn’t help myself. And everyone else used them, too. So they must have agreed that the gems give flare.

The teal ribbon is tied in a bow. Since this is a boy card…maybe I should have tied it in a knot instead???

so sweet butterfly cardHere we come to the most challenging card of the event. This is also one of my personal favorites.

First,we stamped the flower in black ink on the brown cardstock. Again to create a look of background paper.

Next, punched out a large circle in the center right. The stamp that shows through is a bit larger than the circle. So we had to stamp the image on white cardstock then center it in the circle. We couldn’t stamp through the circle.

The butter fly and verse “so sweet of you” is one stamp. On this card I stamped it all in brown. Then on a scratch paper stamped the butterfly in pink. Cut it out and glued it to the white paper.

Then, the final touch is to put pink gems over the body of the butterfly.

We attached a petite pink bow to the front using a Zot. Perhaps one of the greatest glue inventions ever. Ok, I exaggerate but I’m a big fan of glue dots.

This card could have been a lot easier had the stamp fit inside the circle. But alas, I did not have a bigger punch or a smaller stamp.

The other element that gave people grief was the bow. People struggle to make bows in the first place. Having to use a tiny ribbon on top of that was even more challenging. So, I tied several bows and was happy to do so.

love ya cardThe event was one day before Valentine’s day. So we created a “love ya” card. This was another stamp that gave me grief. I’ve seen lots of cute cards that use note type stamps. But…what background do you give this image since you can’t use decorative paper?

I opted to go with “white space”. Meaning not to add much to the background. That means the stamp must carry most of the interest. Ok, I confess, my sister actually designed this card. I simply added the little green heart.

She stamped the image in green. Framed it with a kraft paper (set at an angle). Then tied a piece of green ribbon around it. Here it’s a knot instead of a bow.

The green heart is simply punched out with a heart punch. Three gems in a row leading up to the heart give the card some “movement”.

My sister originally had a button adhered to the center of the flower. I removed it because I thought it would slow down the station. And because I didn’t have 30 of the same button. I didn’t want to people to get hung up on the idea that all the buttons were different. (That’s something I would get hung up on).

happy birthday flowerThe last card was a geometric card. Again, one of my favorites…probably because it’s got some tone on tone elements!

The squares are cut to 1.5×1.5. The flower stamp is a bit too large for the square. I love that!

The happy birthday greeting is actually part of a stamp that has a little cupcake above it. So people had to learn to ink just the words. Everyone accomplished this very well.

Gems add sparkle. The bow adds interest.

Aain, it proved challenging for some people to tie a bow. These were attached with Zots.

The ink was red distress ink.

The inside has a stamped flower as well. Some people added a gem to that one as well. For hand delivered cards…I think gems inside are great. For mailed cards…I would limit 3D elements to just the outside.

For a card with square elements like this, I encourage people to lay the parts and pieces out before taping. Do a “dry run”. That way you can move the pieces around to see what grouping you like best.

Card Making Fun Raising Event – The People!

No fun raising event would be complete without people! Here are some photos of people that came. Notice…the event was open to men and childen 12+.

      

I really want to thank everyone that came. It was fun to share my love of stamping with so many of you.

Here’s what one of the guys said, “I was reluctant to attend this event because I thought it was kind of a girlie thing, but thank God I went because I discovered a creative side of myself that I did not yet know existed.”

A special thank you to Vickie for driving to my house twice to stamp name plates and prepare for the event. And for her help with setup and tear down. A big thank you to my sweet husband who stayed up late to help me cut paper and prep for the event! I love you! SWAK. Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine Elegant Mess

Valentines Card Using Elegant Mess Technique

If I haven’t said it before, I adore Lucy Abrams’ cards! They seriously warm my heart and lift my spirit. She created a sketch that inspired me to put my elegant mess to work. By elegant mess I mean Fred Mullet’s color wash technique. Check it out.

So I created the following valentines card using her sketch.

Valentine Card using Lucy Abrams Sketch

As you can see above, I created two different types of messy paper with the color wash. One is bold and solid red. The other is mostly white with a smattering of color. These are both created on water color paper. I used a template to cut out the hearts. Then embossed the Stampin’ Up love stamp in black.

I curled the hearts around a pen prior to gluing them to the card. You can see that better in this profile photo.

Valentine card profile showing raised edges of hearts

One of the things I love about this sketch is that it only has a few elements. It can be challenging to limit oneself to a few items.

It will be tough but I think I’ll hide this valentine’s card to give it to my sweetheart in February!

Homemade Christmas Card 2010

Homemade Christmas Card for 2010

Today I’ll show you the card I finally settled on for my 2010 Christmas Card. Again, I went for something simple. Well, more simple than is my habit! =)

christmas scene card

This card really is embossing and sponging on ink. And a little glitter and some gems. Really, that’s it.

First I stamped the tree and sentiment then embossed with white powder. I created a mask in order to just color the tree with green distress ink. I then used a mask to create mounded snow and sponged on blue distress ink.

I used a glue pen to add glitter to the tree and ground. Then added a few gems to look like big chunks of shiney snow. I created 80 of these this year.

80 homemade cards

My card was directly inspired by Julie Ebersole. I adore her work! She used a sparkly red bird. I did not have one, so opted to add color in my tree instead.

The tree stamp is from Stampin’ Up – most likely retired.
The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.
Ink is Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Dear Santa – Define Good

Christmas Card – Dear Santa, Define Good

This fall I was browsing the “value stamps” and ran across several cute Christmas Stamps. I wanted something that had a Christian message, but I couldn’t resist the humor in the stamp “Dear Santa, Define Good”. Seriously, that has been cracking me up for months. My husband and I have lots of arguments. Most times we are in total agreement but argue none the less! 

My sister came over one afternoon to help me design something simple and quick so that I could crank out 80 cards. We never came up with “the one”, but we had fun playing with this set none the less.

Cards using the stamp set "Dear Santa, Define Good."

The goal was to create simple cards that could be cranked out quickly. Compared to work I’ve put into cards in the past, these would all qualify as simple.

All stamps are from Studio G.

Sweetness and Joy for Christmas

Sweetness and Joy for Christmas with Denami

Don’t you just adore this sentiment on the card? It says, “Wishing you sweetness and joy”. I love it.

Homemade christmas sweetness and joy wishesDenami stamps are always adorable, and now it’s sweet, too! =) For this card I colored the image with copic markers. I also added glitter to several elements, though the picture may not show it very well.

I used a scallop punch on the blue tag that has the year on it. The date is made from Quickutz dies. I added glitter to that as well.

The card is 5.5 x 5.5. I think it looks like a little gift…full of sweetness. This stamp would also make an adorable tag on some homemade goodies.

Here’s another photo of the card. Maybe you can see the glitter better on this closeup.

Copics With and Without Distress

Copics Work on Cards that are Both Distressed and Not Distressed

I made two very different cards recently. I utilized a couple different techniques for stamping and for the copics. Let’s take a look at them.

Simple Blending with Copics and Ribbon

Coloring with copics on paper and ribbon

Take a close look at the skin tones. Do you see the darker shading on the left? What about on the shirt and pants? Of course, there’s a bit of grey to cast shadows of the girls. This is traditional coloring with copics. Meaning the image is given depth with shading.

Now, what do you think about the blue ribbon? Can you tell that it started out as a piece of cream silk ribbon? I colored the ribbon (Creative Impressions) with the chisel tip of my copic marker. Pretty sweet!

Distressing has become quite popular these days. Let’s see how copics look with that.

Copics with Distressing

Copics accent distress art

Distress takes many forms. There’s torn edges, inked edges and uneven stamping. I think that makes a great backdrop for some vivid Copic colored images.

The poppy flowers are traditional copics coloring. Lots of blending from red to light orange. I opted to do a similar technique on the butterfly. Meaning I didn’t want the pattern on the wings to dictate where the colors should start and stop. Instead, I opted to blend the yellows throughout the wings. I later added some orange to give some shadows. Let’s take a closer look.

copics close up

Do you see the strong accents of orange on the butterfly? That was not blended, but added after the butterfly was colored. The close up shows the glitter quite well, too.

What fun and how versitile!

Place Cards for Drinks

Place Cards at a Potluck

Place cards can really take the guesswork out of unidentifiable foods and drinks at a potluck. Of course, potlucks are awesome because you get to sample people’s favorite foods. But drinks can be a bit more mysterious when stored in coolers and igloos. Place cards will help speed up the beverage counter because people can quickly see what their options are.

Place Cards for Drinks

Place cards for drinks

As you can see, I created three place cards using a table tent design…meaning they stand on their own. I attempted to laminate them…but when that didn’t stick, I opted to cover them with clear contact paper. That makes them look less cute…but more durable!

Place Cards for Tea

First up are the place cards I created for tea. I originally created a large card…but thought that would be a bit much. So I refined it and created a smaller place card.

tea place cards in two sizesThe paper I used for this place card is from K & Company. I distressed the edges with scissors and with tim holtz distress ink.

I used a sizzix swirl die plate on my cuttlebug. Then used some quickutz alphabets and spellbinders  rectangle scallops for the label.

Oh, and the ribbon is from creative impressions.

If you look really closely at the smaller card, you’ll see that the swirl acts as a divider for two different decorative papers. There is a lighter brown paper on the bottom left corner and a darker brown on the top right corner.

This item was fairly flat, no brads or gems, so that I could cover with contact paper. I didn’t want anything that would snag or tear.

Place Cards for Lemonade

Now, the lemonade was more of a challenge. The word is quite long! The face of the place cards measure 4″ x 2.5″. So there’s not a ton of room for letters. But still I opted for a chunky letter so the tag would be easy to read.

place card for lemonadeThe clear contact paper kind of hides or distorts the cute distressing on the card.

First I ran a piece of brown cardstock through the cuttlebug using a texture plate. I then distressed the raised elements with Tim Holtz white paint.

I also created the teal daisy with a quickutz plate. And I used the same letter plate for this card that I used on the tea place card.

Again, the edges are disgressed with scissors and ink.

Place Card for Water

The last place card I’ll share is the one my sister and I created for water. It was a team project. She originally designed a large card…but I trimmed it down to fit the 4″ x 2.5″ format.

place card for waterAs you can see, I distressed the paper. Use the cuttlebug. This time the paper has a decorative edge from the labels 8 die plate from spellbinders.

This design is on the simple side.

My goal, as I said earlier, was to create cards that are easy to read and would help keep the beverage line moving.

I hope these inspire you to create beautiful custom place cards for your next potluck or party.

Coloring with Copics – Girlfriends Card

Coloring with Copics – Girlfriends Card

Coloring with Copics is a lot of fun and it adds a lot of depth to our homemade stamped cards. I’d like to show you how I colored this girlfriends card.

Girlfriends Card Colored with Copics

The layout for the card is very traditional. I think the colors make it fresh and fun. I did use a bit of tone on tone in the green accent layer. But I went more vibrant with some of the other colors.

The girlfriends stamp is from Rusty Pickle. The saying and background stamps are from Hero Arts. I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for girls and sentiment. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink for the green. And I used Copics to color the image.

Coloring with Copics – Shading: A Side by Side Comparison

Let’s begin by looking at a side-by-side comparison of a card colored with shading and one without.

Two cards: one shaded with copics on not shaded

Can you se the difference? At this size, you may not be able to tell. The hair is one area where shading adds volume. Copics can really be subtle yet powerful. I think the card on the right just looks more finished.

Coloring with Copics – The First Layer

There are a couple of different techniques when coloring with Copics. Don’t take me too literally here because I haven’t taken any classes yet. But I’m told there are several techniques. So far I’ve only used two.

The technique I’m using here is to add shading without blending. Let me point out that I colored the entire card before doing any shading. I simply used the lightest color I wanted for each element. Later I will add darker colors for shading. 

the base layer colored with copics

Coloring with Copics – Adding Shading

Generally when you’re coloring with copics you want the shaded areas to blend. But for this card, I opted for a harder line with the shadow color. I think it works primarily because the shadow color is close enough to the base layer. And it also works because the elemnts are small.

Shading added to card with copics

Let me give you one more close up….see if you can find the darker colors.

coloring close up

Ok…so let’s test your coloring with copics skills. Do you see the shading in the following:

  • hair
  • face
  • shirt
  • pants
  • mugs

I’m sure you spotted all of those…but there are a couple more things I’d like to point out. Coloring with Copics makes it easy to ground your figures. I used two shades of grey to give shadows to the image. Do you see the grey under their feet and under the chairs and table?

The other perk about coloring with copics is that you can give the stamped image a shadow or a glow. In this case, I colored a light blue on the left and bottom side of all the outside lines. Some people color around all the outside lines.

The copic markers are Set A from the Ciao series. I love this set because it gives you many shades and takes all the guess work out of trying to decide what colors you need. But, of course, now I am drooling over Set B! =)
