Copic/Promarker Challenge Oct 21st

Happy Friday Everyone,

Hope your week has went well.

Today's challenge over at The Outlawz is Asian Theme.

Today I used a Magnolia stamp and my new butterfly die from All that Scraps.
The background is really a napkin. I cannot think of the type of napkin I have had these for years. I thought it went well.

My image is colored with copics. I cut her out so that I could match the dimension of the butterflies.

Please remember that the project must be colored using Copic or Pro makers and must be a new creation. No Back Linking. I hope that you will come join us for this weeks challenge.

Thanks for stopping by

Think Pink

Happy Friday,

I hope you have had a great week. It is really beginning to feel and look like fall here.
There are a lot of home decorated for fall and Halloween.

Well this is not only my birthday month but way more important it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I hope all of my lady followers have scheduled their appointments for their mammogram. I have although it is in November it is schedule. Please do the same. Remember better to have it done the find out too late.

So with that here is the challenge for this week over at The Outlawz CPC today. I hope you didn't party too much last week during our party that you can't play. The week it is Breast Cancer Awareness/Pink or Opal. Take your pick. Just make sure it is colored with your Copics or Promakers and it needs to be new creation for the challenge and no backlinking.

Here is what I came up with for the challenge.

The image is by Tickled Pink. They had a special offer on 4 digi stamps that all of the proceeds went to breast cancer awareness. She colored with my copics.

The DP is some that I had picked up at Michaels a while back. The verse was part of the digi's that TP was selling.

The butterflies are cut from a CC Designs die cut. I added the little antennas. I colored some white pearls with my Copics to match. I hope you have enjoyed the card. It was really fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Enjoy your weekend. Be sure and check out my previous post for my new video I made to go along with my other glue gun pearls.

New Video

Hi there,

Hope your week is going well. It is raining and just plain yuck here.

I have added another video to my Hot Glue Gun Series.
I couldn't get the angle just right. Sorry about that. But if you have seen my other two video you should be able to follow along.

This video show you how to make pearl sprays and icicles that you can use for embellishments that you can use in your card making.

I hope you like it.

I am reposting the other two videos for reference here as well.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will give this a try. They are a fun alternative to the pre-made pearls and pearl embellishments. Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for the new card challenge for The Outlawz CPC group.

Mine is the Z fold card that I modified. The one I did for the challenge is fall themed. My card today is Christmas. Never to early to get a jump on those cards.

This image is by Silvia Zet for SCACD. Isn't she so cute walking with her little teddy bear? She is colored with my Copics.

The DP is all old from my collection. I cut the snow flake with my cuttlebug die.

I added some glamour dust for the snow and fur trim. As well as on the snow flakes.

If you have noticed the trend that all of the challenges have a theme of Fall but each with a little something different. The CPC team's theme is to create a card with a fall theme and a different kind of folded card. Of course you must use Copics or Promarkers.

As inspiration we decided to make the same "type" of card but we have changed up the dimensions, shape and or layering on some of them. Our card is the Z fold card. Below you will find a video and PDF tutorial so that you can make one of these. We have also included the different variations as well.

Do you have to make this card style fold for the challenge? Oh no, not at all but if you want to feel free.

Okay, what did you think? Hope you enjoyed the tutorials. We invite you to join our challenge as well as all of the challenge. The more you enter the better chances you have for one of the fabulous prizes.
