Playing with Copic Markers today and my dies.  So much fun!  I am making birthday cards and Mother's Day.  No more buying cards for me!  I hope the recipients enjoy them.

This is one is for my mother in law.  She loves cats so I used a clear stamp I had bought and Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored with Copics and viola!  I am sure you can see some of my mistakes, but I loved coloring.  Practice makes perfect.

Copic Colors Used:


I was not meaning to use 4 colors but I wanted some more shadow around some areas, so I added E13 and blended with E11. I had fun using my white core card stock!  I love that technique of rubbing the embossed card stock with a sand block to bring out the design that was embossed. 

This other card I did for my sister in law.  Her birthday is coming up so I decided to make her a card.  I pulled out the cardstock I had plus some little things I had like flowers and some bling, bling. 

More cards to come ....

    I saw your comment at Sharon Harnist's blog about needing heavier cardstock in colors. I LOVE love love GinaK Pure Luxury 80-120# cardstock. Here is her link:
