Trying the Copics

Today's creation - well, not actually today – I did these cards a few nights ago at about 3am – so I guess that would make that 3 mornings ago – Anyway….

I decided to jump on board the copic marker kick and see where it takes me. I purchased a few online and have liked them. I'm still working on my technique and get great tutorials from Marianne at her blog I Like Markers. She is "copic certified" – whatever that means – but she really knows what she's talking about and her daily tutorials are AWESOME! Thanks, Marianne for your inspiration!!

I found a great store here in Grand Rapids that sells Copics and PrismaColor markers at a decent price. The really great thing is they are even cheaper when you purchase them online. The store is called Service Reproductions . Online the PrismaColors are only $2.58 and the Copics are only $3.99. They were a little over $4.00 in the store, but I didn't have to pay shipping either. I am a visual learner, so actually seeing the colors in person makes it easier for me to pick which ones I want. So go check them out. They have just about every color you can imagine!

Now for the stampin bit – Here is the information on how I made the 2 cards above. I used all the same paper and stamps for both.

Both cards use the following supplies:


Ethel with coffee cup by Rubbernecker stamps,

Real Friendship sentiment stamp by DRS Designs.


Whisper White, certainly celery, bashful blue, real red & Barely Banana by Stampin' Up! Designer Paper – unknown – from one of the paper packs I purchased at Michael's a long time ago.

Copic Markers :

Baby Blue, Willow, Chestnut, Pink, flesh


Red grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!. paper piercing tool (card on right), stampin dimensionals, Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped ovals and cuttlebug embossing folder (for rug on the card on the left)

I hope you like it. This one is going to my good friend…to thank her for all she does for me.
