New Class! Create with Copics: Simple Landscapes

In this workshop, I will show you how to add a simple sky and landscape to the Art Is stamp set by Colorado Craft Company that you can easily modify for the stamped images in your stash. You will complete an image that you could use for a card. However, the entire focus of this class will be on Copic coloring rather than card techniques.
PREREQUISITE: Experience coloring and blending Copic markers.

Copic Markers

The list below reflects the Copic markers that I will use in class. You can follow along using the same colors OR substitute colors based upon your personal Copic collection. Markers will NOT be supplied either by me or Photo Scraps. You must bring your own markers to participate in class. If you need markers, please contact Photo Scraps in advance of class. If you wait until class time, you may not be able to purchase the markers or other supplies you’ll need to participate in class.

NOTE: Please make sure that your markers — especially the blue and green markers — are filled prior to class. You can have your markers refilled at Photo Scraps if necessary. You will not be able to successfully color the background with partially filled markers, not because you will be using a lot of ink, but because you won’t be able to put down enough ink for successful blending.


  • You can substitute your favorite green combination for YG01/YG03/YG17/YG67 used on the grass and foliage.
  • You can substitute your favorite pink combination for RV55/RV63/RV66 used on the rag.
  • I used two different gray combinations (C0/C1/C3/C5 and W0/W1/W3/W5) for some variety in the rabbits. You can stick with one combination or choose the comparable markers from the neutral or toner grays.

New Class! Cards With Bloom – Queen’s Ink – March 24, 2022

All experience levels are welcomed. If you’re an old hand at stencil projects, you’ll feel right at home. If you’re new to it, you’ll learn the basics to get you started with this fun project. CLASS FEE $38

New Online Class: Merry & Bright

HEY FRIENDS! I just posted a new online Copic class on my blog. In this class you’ll create three holiday cards featuring stamps by My Favorite Things. New to Copics? Don’t have a lot of markers? Need holiday cards but don’t have a lot of time? Then this is the class for you! CLASS FEE $26

Participation requires the purchase of a pre-made kit from Photo Scraps. Either stop by the store to purchase your kit, or call Tracy at 410-549-5187 to have a kit sent to you. The class URL and password are provided in your kit.  

  • Any Level
  • Prerequisite: none
  • Class includes two videos. The first shows you how to color the images and the second shows you how to assemble the cards.

Class Supplies

Below are the supplies that I will be using in this class. For this class, I highly recommend that you use the same markers. In the coloring video, we will be doing a technique called underpainting and your results may be unpredictable if you stray too far from the colors I selected.

COPIC MARKERS: The list below reflects the markers that I will use for in class. I kept the color palette simple so that I could limit the number of markers.

ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES: You will also need the following –

  • Card kit purchased from Photo Scraps
  • Clear Wink of Stella by ZIG
  • Strong glue to adhere layers. I suggest Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive.
  • White glue that dries clear. I will be using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
  • Foam tape or foam squares (such as Gina K. Designs Foam Squares or Scrapbook Adhesives 3-D Squares). I was out of foam squares at the time of filming so I used Foam Sticky Strips from Taylored Expressions.
  • T-Square ruler (optional)

Demo Day and ANOTHER Copic Coloring Video

HEY FRIENDS! I was on a roll yesterday and created another Copic coloring video using the Holiday Happy stamp set by Stampendous! I don’t think I’ve ever created two videos on one day, but these images are quick and easy to color so you can work through them pretty fast.

Just an FYI – this card will also be available as a card kit for Demo Day at Photo Scraps.. So if you’re interested, mark your calendar for Saturday, November 20th and call Lisa or Tracy at 410-549-5187 if you want to purchase a card kit.

So here it is!

And just like the previous card, the card kit does not contain red cardstock to back the image. I used white cardstock and used my R46 Copic marker to colored a border top and bottom.

Demo Day and New Coloring Video – Holiday Happy by Stampendous!

HEY FRIENDS! A few weeks ago, I created a card using the Holiday Happy stamp set by Stampendous! Well, I decided to create a variation of that card for the upcoming Demo Day at Photo Scraps. So if you’re interested, mark your calendar for Saturday, November 20th and call Lisa or Tracy at 410-549-5187 if you want to purchase a card kit.

In the meantime, I’ve uploaded a Copic coloring video for the image.

JUST A NOTE: The card kit does not contain red cardstock to back the image. I used white cardstock and used my R46 Copic marker to colored a border top and bottom. This way, I don’t have to keep a lot of colored cardstock on hand and the accents always match the image perfectly.
