Birthday Copic marker card

Hello, everyone! I have a quick and easy birthday card for you today that I made using my copic markers, Bo Bunny paper, and CTMH stamp set called 'Love You Forever'.

This is super duper easy throw together card.

Here is a video I did a while back about copic markers. it is full of information for people who are just starting out. The only thing that needs to be updated in the video is that now I actually am a certified designer!

Well, we are expecting snow AGAIN here in Texas in today. It has been the coldest winter we have had here in years! I hope where ever you are, you are nice and cozy today!

Have a wonderful day!!

I live in IL and we are going to get another 8-14 inches of snow. that is on top of the 6 inches that is still on the ground from 2 weeks ago. the temp is 15 today and is gong to get very cold again. So that only means time to craft. GREAT card I love CTMH. Love the stamps. and the paper.

Very cute. I'm in South Texas and while we won't get snow, it will be windy and cold. Yuck! Anyway, I have been hearing a lot about copic markers and have no idea what they are or what makes them special. Where can I go to get the scoop on them and how I would use them for scrapbooking?

Thank you so much for doing the video on Copic markers! I've heard about them for some time and wouldn't have thought they were so special until the video and you!! Looking forward to learning more!! Yep, I've always pronounced the name the same way you "want" to. LOLOL

Your card is adorable!!!

Thank you for sharing!!

Very cute card & video.
Thanks for sharing the info. I have been wanting these COPICS bigtime.
Can't wait to see your upcoming videos.

Justine said...

Thank you so much for doing this video. I have wondered about the copic markers and look forward to your future copic videos.

Hi I just sent you an email and then I saw your video. Two different things. Oh well that's me. Anyway I love my Copic markers and you gave great info. Yes Gina K's paper Pure Luxury works great. I love the way Copic markers blend. Like in your bird. There isn't a hard line when the color get lighter. The other thing is they don't make the paper wet and peel. You can go over and over one spot a lot. Thanks for the great video. I'll be back!

Hi there! I heard you mention The Scrapbook Barn in Dallas...I just recently started scrapbooking (2 months ago) and went to my first class at The Scrapbook barn this past Saturday! I noticed the Close to my Heart tag on your blog-do you work for them?

Super cute card and the first time I've heard of the copic markers? I haven't done a lot of stamping in a LONG time-my hubby keeps asking me when I'm going to do anything with all the stamps on my shelf in my office/craft room....hmmmmm maybe it's time to dust them off? :o)
I live up here in Prosper, TX although my 6 y/o goes to school in Plano so I'm excited to see you're in the DFW area-I promise I won't "stalk" you but geezzz I'd really love to see your craft room there in person. I haven't been to the scrapbook barn in a long while either (used to live just down the street) but maybe I'll have to drop in and hope to bump into you-lol!

Can't wait to see the next video!

Thank you so much for this video! I have heard so much about Copic markers and wanted to start playing with them. This provided a great deal of insight for me. You referenced paper that you use but I am not sure where I can go online to purchase it? Was it called Paper Train Paper? Thanks again!!

Nancy said...

Would love to know where you recommend we get the paper you spoke of that you use frequently.
