Here's that project I promised you yesterday, colored with Copic markers on Copic's new X-Press It Blending Card -- look at how vibrant the colors are!
This card is for JustRite's Friday Challenge #030, using an inspiration photo as inspiration for your project. You can find all the details about this week's challenge over at the JustRite Inspiration blog.
Here's a closer view of this beautiful new Ornament stamp from JustRite Stampers (click on images for a larger view):
Currently, this cardstock only comes in white. Some of you who regularly follow my blog may have noticed I've mentioned many times my phobia of white, LOL! I usually color on an ivory cardstock. But the Copic ink color is so pretty and vibrant on this cardstock that I compensated and used my Copic E50 Egg Shell marker to color any of the remaining white areas of the cardstock ... problem solved! :D
The Copic X-Press It Blending Card is currently available for retailers to order through your normal Copic distributor. If your favorite retailer isn't aware of it yet, let them know about it!
I also forgot to share some photos from the CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) show yesterday, so there they are:
Above was the entire Copic team at dinner one night -- we were all there except for sweet Canadian Sherrie Siemens! From left to right: Justin Cooper, Marianne Walker, Debbie Olson, Jennie Black, Colleen Schaan, Jenn Balcer, Lori Craig, Ron Sprafkin (National Sales Mgr), Jonny Felbel (the Australian Copic distributor), Nancy Zenke (Certification Coordinator) and me.
Here is the team that helped at Copic's make & take at the Splitcoaststampers booth at the consumer SuperShow Friday morning. Lori was also working Splitcoaststamper's portion of the make & take in the same area, using Copic markers.
Here's Marianne and I teaching this cute snowflake envelope make & take project that Lori designed! It used the new X-Press It Double-Sided High Tack adhesive tape and Copic Spica Glitter Pen. It was so much fun to talk with 100+ people who came to do the make & take!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend ... thanks so much for stopping by!
