Hello again. Were you one of our November release party winners? If you haven’t checked out our winner’s list, make sure to click here and see if you won some stampy goodness.
My blog post for Day 4 will be scheduled to go live tomorrow, but I will be away for the day to celebrate Thanksgiving. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful time together. I know families aren’t always perfect & there can be some family drama (we’ve got some of that too), but I hope that you still find some gratitude & happiness. Also, stay safe!!
And FRIDAY! Don’t forget FRIDAY at midnight EST an amazing sale starts in the SP Store. This will be THE most amazing sale we will probably ever have & I am not just saying that. I have marked down many of the stamp sets super low. The prices are so low, I kind of even shocked myself! The reason I am making them down so super low is because I am switching over all the older stamp sets to the new packaging and I would rather sell them than have to re-package everything!! HA HA So my laziness is actually going to benefit you greatly 😉
Here are some of the things you can expect to see during this amazing sale:
- Stamp sets as low as $4.75 each!
- Single stamps as low as $1 each!!
- Select non-stamp categories as low as 50% off!!
- EVERY item in the store marked down!
I know things will sell out so please stop by earlier rather than later. I would hate it if you were disappointed that something sold out before you got what you wanted. The sale will continue until Monday.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, it is time for Day 3 of my 25 Days of Copic Christmas. Today’s project was also made to go along with the Paying it Forward Thanksgiving challenge over at The Greeting Farm.
I made a speed coloring video to along with today’s project.
Here is a list of the Copic colors I used:
- For the jeans: B91, B93, B95
- For the skin: E000, E00, E93, E95
- For the hat: E84, E87, E89
- For the hair: E21, E27, E29, E49
- For the teal areas: BG53, BG57, BG09
- For the red areas: R56, R59, R89
EXPERT TIP #3: Matchy Match
This is a tip I have shared before, but the Copic Hand Color Chart is your best friend if you are a Copic user. Use your chart to match your copic coloring to the patterned paper or card stock you want to use on your project!
If you have never heard of the Hand Color Chart, basically it is a giant grid of little rectangles that you color in with the color written inside the square. You should print this chart out on whatever paper you use for your Copic coloring so that the colors are exact matches to what your coloring will look like (each paper is a teensy bit different looking so it will make the markers look a little different too!).
So with my expert tip in mind, you know how I picked my colors for this image. I just matched my Copics up with the colors in this beautiful patterned paper. The paper is from the Winter Fun collection from Carta Bella. I am just loving this collection. I’ll admit that the sticker elements aren’t among my top favorites, but this paper will go down in history as one of my favorite paper collections of all time. I just love this paper!!
I decided to make another square card. This one measures 4.5inches square & then I rounded the corners.
The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. It is saddle stitch Hawaiian Shores ribbon.
I added a mat layer to my image layer & the mat layer is Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I popped this piece up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of dimension.
The sentiment is from the Cutest Gingerbread Man stamp set. It was stamped onto a 1/2inch strip of Kraft cardstock and I just cut it to the width of my image/mat layer.
Here’s another look at my finished card:
