Another Copic creation

This is another card coloured using Copics. I have used one of my favourite stamps in the whole catalogue! I can imagine dipping my toes in that water and having time to think and contemplate things like; what I'm going to be doing next!

Happy crafting.

My introduction to Copics

Just thought I'd post a card I started to make on Sunday at a Copic marker class. I went with a friend and we learned lots about Copics and now I'm probably hooked! lol! I will still be using my SU inks and my new lovely SU markers as they co-ordinate perfectly with the SU card stock and designer papers, but if i've a lot of space to colour in, Copics are definitely going to be giving me an alternative finish as a non-artist.

I'm pretty pleased with the way the card turned out, its a great start on the Copics and using my favorite SU papers, I think finishes it off nicely.
SU products used:
Whisper white cs, patterns designer series papers in Bashful Blue, Bashful Blue ink for daubing the edges.
Happy crafting.

More time to craft..

Just a short post today, and another page from my Tenerife album, I take my youngest daughter back to Bath tomorrow and then I should have more time to craft and post!
The photo on this page is of my really lovely partner, David. He doesn't mind how much I craft, anything so long as I am occupied and not bothering him, so he can get along earning the money I spend! lol ;)

OK this is my 3rd page.......

When I scrapbook my pages, I really do like my facing pages to match, so this one is made using the same colours as my last page and the stamp used is from Season of Joy.

Pretty successful, I'll try that again - on my own now!!

Page two of my Tenerife album, this time using Ruby Red and Garden Green cardstock, along with Cheers to You stamp set. Throughout the album I have used the Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.

So I shall continue.....with photo's hopefully

I can't believe it, I was a Creative Memories consultant for 4 years and I never ever managed to create more than the odd page here and there. I've been with Stampin' Up for a few months and I've already completed an album!

David and I went to Tenerife in November and I will share with you a few of the pages from my album.
