Copics!!


I have Copics! The happy mail arrived yesterday! All That Scraps sells them in a set of 48 markers that coordinate with SU! colors. How cool is that? I bought them with my Christmas money! I know there's a learning curve with these markers, so I started with a simple image that didn't require too much detail. I think I did all right for my first time! ;)

This little piggy is from the C.C. Designs Little Bit Kit Love Ya Lots. That set and Love Ya Much will be released tomorrow at All That Scraps. So far I've shown you the birds, the lion, and the bunny, and now here's the pig! The other two images are Lucky and Lulu -- I'll have some samples with them, too! I made this card for today's Ways to Use It Challenge at SCS -- using flowers. There are flowers on the Stella Ruby paper, and I embellished with a Prima flower. I did some sponging and some machine stitching, and I used my Cuttlebug on the narrow panel. There are Cotton Candy Stickles on the heart.

I hope you liked the sneak peeks at the new sets -- be sure to head over to ATS tomorrow to get yours! The images are just too cute, and they can be used for projects year-round! Thanks for coming by today -- have a fantastic day! :)

Stamps: Love Ya Lots (C.C. Designs) Ink: Basic Black, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa (SU!) Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Whisper White (SU!) Paper: Stella Ruby (BasicGrey) Other: Copic markers, Prima flower, May Arts ribbon, Giga Scalloped Circle Punch & Mega Circle Punch (Marvy Uchida), Cuttlebug & Textile Texture embossing folder (Provo Craft), Cotton Candy Stickles (Ranger), Hodge Podge Hardware (SU!), sponge, dimensionals, paper piercing tool, sewing machine
