Copic Ciao's

So after my certification class I came home with samples of the sketch markers and my husband and I talked about the difference. I told him that I can keep my Ciaos and add the other colors in Sketch. Well he told me to sell my ciaos and get the set of all sketch so if you are interested in my 5 month old Ciaos, please let me know. I have all 144 colors with cases.

It's official.... I'm a certified Copic designer!

So I wanted to update everyone on how my class went. It was in Riverside so it took me about an hour to get there. There were a total of about 20 ladies, mostly store owners and shop workers. I learned a few new techniques like tip to tip blending, how the blender pen REALLY works, the airbrush system, how to feather (which I was actually already doing but didn't know what it was called :-) How to put a shadow or highlight behind an image and also how to use the blender solution to create cool textures with different fabric etc. All in all I learned a lot and was also told I did good work which makes me feel great! I'm going to keep coloring and I look forward to making videos in the future with some of the techniques I've learned.

Dream of Scrappin' said...

OH My what funny stories...Thanks so much Gina!
At a swarm dinner an off color comment was made about the size of the hostesses dinner. We laughed until we cried and lots of pictures were taken. The following day at the swarm, the challenge was to scrap the picts and then the hostesses' husband picked the winning LO~without knowing the joke. It was hilarious!
Thanks again!

Owl Happy Birthday Card

I made this card for my co-workers birthday today. She loves owls. I used Sugar and Spice Cricut lite cart for the owl and of course added bling!

My DD's New Cricut Bag

I bought a bag from a wonderful lady named Yvonne on the Cricut MB. She knew I was looking for a bag for my daughters baby bug and she got in touch with me. It's a jewelery tote but works perfect as a bag for her baby bug. We used Vinyl and acrylic paint to personalize it. Her name is cut out with Hello Kitty Font and the bear is cut from the new Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite cart. Of course she had to add bling to it. Not sure the bling shows up in the pictures though.

Busy Holiday Weekend

I know how much my Friend Jo loves Sunflowers so I saw this stamp and decided to make her a just cause card. Here is what I did.. I couldn't find any sunflower paper in my stash so I made some. I used a smaller stamp and some versamark and stamped the green paper. The big yellow flower is actually a half flower stamp that I stamped together to make one whole one. By putting the girl in the center I kinda hid the connection part. Inked up all the sides and added lots of bling on this one. Hope you like :-)
