Affordable Presents

I've done a fair bit of coloring with Copic markers recently but I decided to do something a little more in reach of the average budget with this card. In this case, I used the Bic Mark-it markers, which have some interesting colors (even if the caps don't match the actual color) and are affordable. In fact they are cheap but they do work and they are alcohol based so you can use things like water based glitter glue over them without them running. Don't get me wrong, if you can afford the Copic markers, Copic Ciao or Sketch markers are the better choice. For example, notice there is no shading on this card like on the other Copic colored ones on the website. The point is that you can do creative coloring on a budget with the right stamp and markers.
Here are the cards (Click on them for full directions).

Stampin' Up! Seaside Sketches and Copic Marker Cards

Often times my inspiration for making cards is to just pick a stamp set or product I brought but haven't used yet and start making something with it. That's the case with these cards. I brought this stamp set a while ago but other than watercolor pencils, I didn't have a good way to color it. Now I do so I stamped out a bunch of the images and have been coloring them and assembling them into cards over the last two weeks. Here are the results.
For any of my posts, if you want more information just click on the image and you will go to the direction page on my website for that card.

Massive March Update

I've been too busy creating cards and neglicting the blogs so here's a massive update of what I got done in March before I start putting April's creations online (if I can stop making new stuff long enough to do that) and fall 2 months behind. Click any of the images to go my website and get full directions for any of these cards.

This is a Stampin' Up stamp set colored with Copic markers. Click on any of the card images for more details.

Same card as before, but turned in a Birthday Card and on a slightly darker red because I was out of the lighter color.

"Leftover" paper from my previous Easter card turned into a quick and simple Easter card.

After a year of seeing it advertised in magazines, one of the local scrapbooking stores finally got FlowerSoft. It's very simply to use, just apply glue where you want it and sprinkle it on!

More playing with Copic markers and the first belated birthday I have ever made.

A different design created to play with my new Flower Soft!

Almost the same as before but with the Spring Flower Soft and a Birthday sentiment.
