Copic Class, a few cards, and a Celebration!

 Hi ya everyone!
  This year at the CKC convetion I decided to take three Copic classes that were offered - mostly because I love my Copics and I don't scrapbook as often as I like.  The three-part class was put on by a wonderful company called Clear and Simple Stamps.  The best part about this company is they offer very simple clear stamps and then teach you how to make some of the sweetest cards.  I had so much fun in this class and learned a great number of techniques and tricks.  I hope to share some of what I learned.  I already shared a few things in my simple Copic Coloring Tutorial.  But first, I'd like to share the few cards that I made while in the class.  The first two above are from Class I. 
Class II - I love these cards - so simple and so sweet - it was easy to whip these out in a few for someone and they look so cute.  And you start with plain paper - the rest is stamps!
Class III was a lot of fun because we got to play around with an airbrush and learn a few techniques.  Did I tell you that my hubby bought me an airbrush gun for my birthday?  I really haven't used it much - I have the cans for air but want to get an air compressor - I also think that my Copics are getting dry because the first time I used it - it didn't work so well =( - but if at first you don't succeed!

Which brings me to another topic - it's almost my one year anniversary of having my own blog!  I really want to celebrate so look back for a few prizes in the next couples of days!! I also really want to do a week of my favorite cards in the past year!

Have a GREAT day!

  6. Melissa, I love your cards! Wish I could find a copic class here -- tried but haven't been sucessful. My coloring sucks and I'm afraid my copics are probably drying up if they already haven't.
