Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop

Hello everyone!! If you are blog hopping today, you should be arriving from Donna's Blog. Welcome to your next stop on the Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop. If for any reason you get lost on the blog hop, all of the blogs are listed in order at the blog hop facebook page by clicking here.

iCopic is so glad to be a part of the Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop and really hope that you will check out our Design Team Call that was posted yesterday (Click here!). iCopic is the #1 internet retailer of Copic markers and has a great variety of stamping products also. We will be announcing our very own design team January 1st and we hope that you will check back regularly to see what we have to offer you.

Here is a lovely project made by our design team leader, Samantha. She is also the owner of SP and Company and is your last stop on the blog hop. This adorable card and cocoa gift box would be a great gift for co-workers or children's teachers. It is just a little happy gift!

The dog on the card is from the SP & Company - Christmas Emma Stamp Set.
 It was colored in with Copic markers in the following colors: C1, C3, C7, R27, R29, E31, and B02. The E31 was used for airbrushing the background (more on airbrushing coming very soon!)

The sentiment is from the SP & Company - Ultimate Sentiments I Stamp Set.

And the Merry Christmas pattern was made using the Chomas Creations Gel Pen holder and the Cricut Expression. The shape drawn is from the Cricut Simply Sweet cartridge.

The directions for this goody bag will be available this weekend from Samantha. The template she designed holds 4 packs of hot cocoa mix perfectly in a cello bag.

I hope you enjoyed our project for you! To show our appreciation for you stopping by, we have a special giveaway!!

One lucky blog hopper will receive a little Copic Marker variety pack! In order to be eligible for the prize, please become a follower here and leave a comment below!  This giveaway will end on Wednesday at midnight EST.
(the ones shown below are not necessarily the colors in the prize pack, it is just a sampling of Copics.).

Thank you for stopping by! The next stop on your hop is Maria's blog.
