Online Card Class

I’m taking the cool class “Heat Wave” from Online Card Classes. I love heat embossing so this is a great way to relax and have some fun with the card supplies that I have. The stamps are from SimonSaysStamp using Jenn’s idea for embossed acetate on a shaker card. I must admit that it took me a couple tries to get it together, but the result turned out well. I’ll be giving this to a friend for her birthday coming up next month!

This has been a nice refresher and chance to use my Copics more. I often think that it’s too much to bring them out, but not every colored image needs to use 10 different colors or be detailed perfection! It’s good to be quick and easy as well!

Day 11: hiding mistakes – I added shading around the image and little dots to hide the coloring outside the lines

Day 12: Copic hacks – doing other things to Copic colored images or using Copics in a different manner. Here, I covered the balloons with clear sparkly embossing powder after coloring and the butterfly has brushable glue and glitter added.

I haven’t done much crafting lately as evidence of the few postings on this blog! I have done some crafty things but not put them on the blog. Anyway, I need to post some class exercises for the Copic class on Online Card Classes:


Day 1: 2 color & 3 color blending


Day 2: Tip to tip blending & acetate/acrylic block


Day 3: Blending with gray


Day 4: Shading w/ a light source


Day 5: Hair and skin
