Copic Coloring and a SALE!

Hi guys!

I'm back today to share a fabulous sale and a few cards.

https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/search?currency=USD&q=copic+marker

Right now, through March 30, 2017, Simon is offering Copic Markers, Refills and more for 25% off! Just click the photo above and it will take you directly to the sale pages. And make sure to use the code: MARKERSALE at checkout!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love coloring with Copics! They make blending so easy and they make me feel like a real artist! I've got four cards to show you today, All colored with Copics. I've linked the supplies at the end of the post.

First up is this bright, happy one.


This is a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp's recent, New Beginnings release and boy is it fun to color! It's called, Hope Blooms. The sentiment was also just released in a new set called, Handlettered Encouragement, which has some really wonderful sentiments. I went a little nutso with the white gel pen dots but they add so much!

Next up is a card using Altenew's gorgeous, Amazing You set. 



My third card uses a new set from Power Poppy called, Peony Muse.


By now, I'm sure you realize that I not only love coloring flowers but love using pink! It's still fairly cold here in Minnesota and I am eagerly awaiting warmer weather and my own pink peonies to bloom. So until then, I'm happy to be able to at least color them!

Last up is a Paintable Print from Simon Says Stamp and illustrated by Suzy Plantamura. With the New Beginnings release, Suzy illustrated 12 floral prints for us to color called, In Full Bloom.


These images are actually printed on Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock but I used Copics on this one. They blended well and I loved bringing these calla lilies to life! You'll get the whole pack of 12 floral prints with this set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all get a chance to do some coloring, creating, crafting, etc this week!

Hugs ♥

Oh Barb, your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS! Your Copic coloring really brings these beautiful blooms to life and makes me yearn for spring even more :) Love how you added details to the petals and leaves on the first card and dimension to the calla lilies on the last one...A real treat for the eyes! Thanks so much for sharing them with us...and for the SSS coupon code!
