Copic Coloring

Here is a video I did for Platinum Scraps on coloring with copic markers.  As you all know I LOVE coloring with these amazing markers.  This shows how I was taught to blend with different shades.

Love Machine

Hello Crafters! I was asked to be a guest designer on The Bug Bytes.  I was really excited to design somthing for Pam's blog so  I made a card from the Robotz cartridge. I am a card maker first and a scrapper second so I really enjoyed making this card. I love this cartridge but I needed it to work for my passion of cards. I looked at several of the robotz to see if I could weld them together to a make a card. I finally came up with this idea.
To begin I added 2 images of the robot to my screen, overlapping them so that they are connected in the middle. By doing this it will eliminate one of the arms but I will show you how I added that back in a bit. Be sure to weld your image!

I then added another page to add my layers to the mat. I added the layers twice because I wanted then in 2 different colors. I also copied one image of the robot from the first page. (this ties in with that overlapping arm)

Fold the welded robot in the middle to make the card. Take the single robot and glue it on top of the folded card robot.

Tada! Our robot now has 2 arms!

I used word to print my sentiment on a blank sheet of paper. I then used clever someday’s hinge method - - to cut out the robot with the sentiment.

I cut off the arms and antennas and added this to the inside of the card.

I added the layers to the front of the card and used my black gel pen to accent a few areas to complete the look.

Thanks Pam for having me! I had alot of fun creating this card. Be sure to visit The Bug Bytes for other great projects!

Mature Cards

I got a request for a sexy mature card that a wife wanted to give to her husband.  I immediately thought of Kenny K's digital images.  He has quite a few sexy ladies on his site.  I used my copics to color them.  After cutting out Miss Fortune, I realized that she would look nice sitting on something.  I pulled out my G and made a test cut of the sofa on French Manor.  She fit perfectly!  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the sofa and placed Miss Fortune on the right side.  The other image is Delores D'ammage.
