Tweet Friends by My Favorite Things

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just a quick post. On Monday, I dropped off two sets of card kits at Photo Scraps for Demo Day to Go featuring the Tweet Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things. I made a quick Copic coloring video for one of the cards. If you want the card kit, stop by or call Photo Scraps – I only made 25 kits for this card so they’ll go fast.

Here’s the video. Enjoy! [If the video doesn’t appear below, click HERE to watch it.]

Online Copic Class – Tulla & Norbert

In this online class, you will complete three cards featuring the Tulla & Norbert clear stamp set by PhotoPlay. This class is pared down to just Copics — no stenciling, heat embossing, foiling, etc. — so that we can concentrate on the basics. The marker colors were chosen to blend with the coordinating Tulla & Norbert design paper by PhotoPlay.

Since we are still social distancing, this Copic class is offered completely online so you can work on it from home at your leisure. It includes five videos as follows:

  • The first video goes over different blending techniques, including blending light to dark, dark to light, tip to tip, and what I often call speed coloring. Start here if you are new to Copic coloring or need to review blending techniques.
  • The next three videos show you how to color the each of the gnome images.
  • The final video shows you how to assemble the cards.

To participate, you’ll need to purchase the class kit from Photo Scraps and provide Tracy with your email address. Once the class videos are available, you will receive an email containing a link and password for the instructional materials. For additional information, please call Photo Scraps at (410) 549-5187.

Class fee $28 and includes the card kits and access to the instructional videos.

Class Supply List

COPIC MARKERS: Below are the markers and supplies that I will be using in this class. Please feel free to substitute where necessary to participate in class. If your markers are different colors than the ones I’ve selected or a completely different brand, you will obviously get different results. But this class is about technique and creativity.
