Here are a few of the cards I will be teaching in several stores this January. All of these images are by My Favorite Things. That awesome red heart paper is from My Little Yellow Bicycle tooooo cute! Several Copic Techniques will be used on each card. The little wagon is actually stamped on wood with buttons added on top. The little girls dress is paper pieced and shadowed using copics behind her arm. The little girl with the blue dress has had polka dots added to her dress by using the Copic blender pen. The flower pot also shows how to color a cylinder object and her hair has been extended using the Copic multiliner. The nurse card is my very favorite. I used Spellbinders
dies to create the pieces on which she is mounted. I colored the background by masking the image and using my copic air brush, I also altered the color of the background paper, flowers and lace. Several skin and hair color suggestions will be included for different ethnic colored skin.

This second image I shaded the lower half of the flower as a whole rather than each individual flower. It was much quicker and probably more realistic looking. Tiny highlights and shadows can be added in. I also added a cast shadow below the flower. Cast Shadows are tricky and I will be talking about them more and more in the upcoming months.

Doesn't Grovy Snowan has the coolest scarf! Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #6! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! This week, it’s the Copic design team and Certification instructors! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!
I did this card at Scrapbooking Heaven on Monday and they LOVED it. It was a few too many pieces for me to cut up and pre die cut and emboss 12 of... but what the heck I love the outcome and so did my students. I sprayed the background with a very light lavender BV000, by leaving the Spellbinders die on the image while spraying it, you get a white outline which I love.
Here is a close up of his hat. Note that I first colored the entire hat with C1 then Added in C4 from the sides then blended with C1. I kept the highlight in the center of the hat from top to bottom and tried to highlight the nose to match. I did this as a project in my class last night at Scrapbook Heaven and they LOVED him.
Please check out my last blog post for some face and skin tips... I think you will like it!

This beautiful winter cardstock by Bo Bunny has been screaming "play with me", since it arrived in the mail. I pulled out this stamp set by My Favorite Things and thought it was a perfect match. The scarf was extra fun by randomly adding soft broken lines of Green and Lavender ink to form a soft plaid design.

Wow! CHA was a blast and exhausting! The Copic Team demo'd all day, then had a 7 night slumber party at night... Hmm... I think that is missnamed, because at a slumber party every one slumbers right.... LOL... not at CHA we stay up all night to chat and giggle. Too fun. My roomies were Jenn Balcer and Marianne Walker.. what fun! wait till you guys see all the new paper that is coming out, and the new images by my favorite stamp companies... stay tuned as you will soon see samples made with these awesome new things. I LOVE PAPER!
My Copic Technique classes sold out quickly. Each class had at least 50 guests in them. My assistant Sara Henton was fabulous. We made sure to walk around and make sure each guest was able to see a demo of each technique. We did our best to give individual attention with such large groups. It seemed like everyone had fun and enjoyed the class. (even when we tripped a breaker and the lights went out).
I got home real late Saturday night, got up early Sunday morning and took the boys and their friends boating and wake boarding. I even tubed some and had a blast. Now today I am going to empty my three suit cases, do laundry and prep for my Arizona classes Friday thru Monday! Whew hew - here I come Phoenix!
