iCopic Weekly Challenge #62

Hello! Samantha here.  Can you believe this will be the LAST iCopic challenge for 2011?! Crazy huh?

Again this week, we are having a weekly prize just for our commenters!! We love when you leave us comments. Every week we will draw a name from all the comments left on that week's posts and give away a $5 gift certificate! The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win. We just want to offer this weekly prize to you guys to say thank you for stopping by and giving us your feedback.   

Here goes. . .

The Challenge: New Years Bling
When I think of New Year's Eve, I think of gold, glitter, and bling. New Years decor is always over the top with shiny stuff. Your project does NOT have to be new years themed, but use lots of bling on your project. Go over the top with your bling just like the decorations for New Year's Eve.

 Add a direct link to your challenge project below. Projects are due on Sunday, January 1st at noon PST. A winner will be chosen at random to receive this week's prize. The winner and top 3 picks be showcased right here on the iCopic blog Sunday evening!

This week's prize is a special $15 gift voucher!

My inspiration project just so happens to be a New Years card, but your project does NOT have to be new years themed.
 For my over the top bling, I used Sheer Shimmer Spritz over the entire scallop circle image. And if that wasn't enough, I added adhesive pearls around the scalloped area.

Here are some close ups:

And I didn't just add some ribbon, I added ribbon, twine, and a button. This definitely works with our over the top theme for this week.

Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone! Samantha here!

From all of us here at iCopic, we would like to wish you a very Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

It has been an absolutely amazing year and we appreciate your support. We are taking a mini break to spend time with our loved ones, but we will be back next week. Enjoy your holiday time and see you soon.  Stay safe and healthy!


Quick Christmas!

Hi, everyone, Kelli here!  AHHHH!!!  Is that how you feel too?  Christmas is only two days away!  I know some of you might be quickly putting together last minute Christmas cards, tags or thank you notes, so I made a set of all three that will only take you a couple minutes to make!  I am actually really pleased with this clean and simple look!  I used the awesome Holly Mistletoe Die by Whiff of Joy to cut the leaves and then colored them with Copics: G28, G24 and G21.  Then I took the R29 marker and colored on top of some clear rhinestones that I had which I used for the holly berries.  I love how they add just the right amount of bling to the projects.  The 'Thank You' sentiment is form the SP & Company - Ultimate Sentiments I set and the 'Season's Greetings' is from Ultimate Sentiments II.  They are all stamped in the VersaFine - Onyx Black Ink.  For the string on the tag I used the Divine Baker's Twine in Cherry.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a Merry Christmas Eve's Eve!  ;)


Santa Gift-Card Card

Today I have a quick gift-card card to share with you for iCopic.   I used stamps from SP & Co and created a quick pocket on the front of my card that will hold a gift card.

Santa is colored with Copic Markers and has flocking on his hat and beard.  The background is stamped, colored with a white color pencil and then erased for a soft muted look.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays Anya Card

Hello everyone! Samantha here!

 We're getting down to the wire now, so  I thought I would share another last minute project. This card took me about 15-20 minutes to put together, including the coloring. I just did some very basic/simple shading.

 Here is my card:
Card Details:
  • This adorable girl is from The Greeting Farm, and she is called Holiday Anya.
  • I colored her in with the following Copics:
    • For the hair: E15, E18, E49, E59
    • For the skin: E00, E21, E02
    • For the leaves and dress: G02, G05, G07, G17
    • For the reds: R29
  • The sentiment is from the SP and Company Christmas Emma Stamp Set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
  • I added some little swirly doos around the sides of the woodgrain paper using my White Gel Pen.

Here's a closer look at my Copic coloring:

If you are like most of us, you are still working on those last minute holiday projects. Be sure to enter our iCopic Challenge this week because it is just right for you! :)

Sparkly Snowman Card

Hi everyone!! Samantha here with another Tuesday Tips and Tricks segment.

Today's Copic Tip:
Don't underestimate the power of good Copic paper!! There are lots of Copic quality papers out there, find one that you like and that works for you, and stick with it. Use the same kind of paper all the time when you are Copic coloring because then you will get consistent results (and start to color better and better). If you just use any old paper, or swap out your papers often, then you will have trouble becoming a Copic MASTER! So same paper, all the time.

 99% of the time, I use the same paper, Xpress IT, which is available right here in the iCopic Store. I get beautiful results with this paper and I am hooked! But it really is a personal choice which paper you use. The bottom line is, find a paper you like, and use it consistently, and you WILL improve. You really have to know your paper (is it soft, easily feathers, can take up lots of ink, etc).

Here's my full project for today:

Sami's Christmas Essentials List

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!!

Samantha here, and today I am going to share with you my top 10 Favorite Christmas items available here at iCopic. There is still a little time left to stock up and get those Christmas cards done. And hey, what's wrong with getting some supplies and getting a head start on next year?

There are just so many gorgeous stamps available in the iCopic store and I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ones for Christmas.

So here you have it. . . Sami's Christmas Essentials list:

1. Whiff of Joy, Penguin's First Snow stamp
How adorable is this little guy?! I think he is just the cutest little darling.

2. CC Designs, Dazzle M Nightly stamp
CC Designs have some of the most adorable snowman stamps! This is just one of many of their cute little guys. Don't ya just love his smile?

3. Prima Jewels
There are so many wonderful adhesive jewels available in the iCopic store. They would be so lovely on a Christmas card (and you can use them anytime since they come in all sorts of colors).

4. SP and Company, Falling Snow Stamp Set
Yes, I am the owner, but this is one of my absolute favorite go-to Christmas sets. I can't even tell you how many times these snow mounds have come in handy. I use them all the time for my Christmas cards. They measure more than 5.5inches across so they can be used across an entire standard card base.

5. Stampavie, Alex in Snow with Puppies stamp
This is one of many gorgeous Christmas themed stamps from Stampavie that are available at iCopic. This one is one of my faves because of the puppies :)

6. Wild Rose Studio, Mia with Sammy stamp
Too cute for words!!

7.  Gorjuss, The Bear stamp set
I think this image is just so heartwarming. I just love that darling polar bear.

8.  La-La Land, Angel Marci stamp
She's so pretty! I can just imagine here colored in with soft Yellow Copics and then decorated with an AtYou Spica glitter pen.

9. Crafter's Companion, A Winter's Tale stamp set
I loved Peter the Rabbit as a little girl and so this stamp set just warms my heart. These images are just so detailed and nice looking. I can see these little rabbits being used for so many things. My favorite ones are the the two near the middle, where the one rabbit is throwing a snowball at the other one. So cute!

10.  And how about some great Copic colors for Christmas. .. here are some of my faves:
  • Reds: R24, R27, and R29
  • Blues for Snow: B0000, B000, B00, and B01
  • Also snow: BG0000, BG000, and BG11
  • Great holiday greens: G14, G16, G17, and G19

Now tell me, what is on YOUR top 10 List of iCopic supplies? What are you hoping Santa will bring you from the iCopic Store?

I don't know about Santa, but my husband is getting a link to this list :)

Are you surprised that there is no Copic project for today? Actually, I have quite a few projects to share with you. I have been working on a very special blog series on my own blog titled "Sami's 12 Days of Copic Christmas"! I will be sharing those projects with you here in the coming days.  But I want to share my Stipple Technique video with you today:

Happy Hanukkah!

Hi, everyone, Kelli here!  The holidays are fast approaching!  Hanukkah will be here in just a few days which means I had to make a card for my Grandma!  Hanukkah colors are generally blue and silver, but I always feel like yellow should be included.  Maybe it's because I think about the flame on the candles or something, lol.  I used the super adorable Sweetheart Birgitta by C.C. Designs stamped in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink.  I felt it wasn't very Hanukkah-y, even with the computer printed sentiment so I decided to cut a dreidel out by hand.  I actually traced it with a pencil and regular printer paper right from my computer screen and used that as a template and did the same with the two little blue stars on it!  Oh, and if you were wondering, the Star of David (on the banner) is a capital Y on the Wingdings font.  :)

To color this little cutie I used Copics:
hair - E29, E27, E25, E23
skin - YR00, E00, R22 for cheeks
dress - B37, B34, B39 for shadows
dress cuff, bows, shoes - B34, B32, C7 and C5 for shoe soles
tights - Y13, Y11, Y000, C3, C1, N0
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!  :)
