Lots of Love by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Here is the last of my clean and simple cards from my snow day in the studio coloring spree! I have a lot of Anita Jeram images — don’t you just love her illustrations! — so for this card I used the Lots of Love stamp set by Colorado Craft Company. I love the simplicity of her images and they really are easy to color. So if you are in need of a Valentine’s Day card, keep this one in mind. As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Today’s project features:

  • Anita Jeram Lots of Love by Colorado Craft Company
  • Copic marker coloring (see marker list below)
  • Ink blending
  • Additional supplies linked in thumbnails below.

Like yesterday’s card, this one is pretty straighforward:

That’s all for me today! Santa brought me a new iPhone so I’m getting ready to create more Copic coloring tutorials for my YouTube channel. See you soon!

Easy Gift Tags Featuring Holiday Happy by Stampendous!

HEY FRIENDS! I’m in a crazy whirlwind trying to get ready for Christmas. Luckily I’ve been making Christmas cards all year so they’re already made, so I’ve been making gift tags. I get hung up in card design – I can color an image in 15 minutes and then spend the next 8 hours trying to design the card. The nice thing about tags is that you can just color an image and cut it into a tag and you’re done!

When I was straightening up my craft room, I found that I had a couple of images already colored that I could quickly turn in to tags. You’ll probably recognize the images since I posted the finished cards earlier, but when I create a coloring video, I sometimes end up with extra colored images so I turned those extras into tags.

Be sure you look around your craft space! I bet there are some die cuts, colored images, or incomplete projects that you could quickly turn into gift tags. You can clean up your work space AND finish a few projects at the same time. For me, that’s a WIN / WIN!

Today I’ve got TWO tags to show you that I created from previously colored images! All three have coloring videos from when I made the cards so be sure you check them out. And as always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

The image was too big for my tag die, so I used one of the dies from the Zig Zag Square Stackables by Lawn Fawn instead. The zig zag edge added a fun border to the tag.

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)
