Mei Li Copic Coloring Class

Tomorrow we have a Copic Coloring class using Mei Li from Sister Stamps. I cased this shadow box card design from one of the samples given to me by Jenny. Her crafty BFF Debi mass produced a bunch of these samples so we could showcase these cute stamps.

(Sidenote: If you haven't pre-ordered your Sept release, tomorrow is the last day to get 10% off and guarantee you will get your stamps by Sept 1.)

I loved how simple it was to make the card, so decided to use the design in our Copic class tomorrow. *Thanks Jenny & Debi!!

In the class, I will be teaching coloring techniques using Mei Li as our sample subject. In addition, we'll be making this card as part of the class. Working on this card sample, I got a chance to ink up stamps from Lawn Fawn which are now available at Pineapple Cove!

I absolutely LOVED the quality of the photo polymer stamps by Lawn Fawn. The images were deep, leaving very crisp lines. Putting pressure did not smudge my lines like some other clear stamps. And my Memento & Versa Fine ink did not stain the photo polymer, a big pet peeve of mine. Don't you hate it when your pretty stamps get dirty? (*Yes, I'm that kind of crafter lol*)







If you missed tomorrow's class, I'll probably be repeating it next month, so keep an eye on our Calendar for more details.

Stamps Used:
Sister Stamps - Mei Li
Lawn Fawn - Bannerific, Lunar Lights
Hero Arts - Asian Borders

Bottlecaps!

My new mini obsession...bottlecaps! I saw some Hello Kitty bottlecap jewelry on Etsy and thought I just had to try it out. I ordered some colored bottlecaps and have had them for a few months now. Haven't taken the plunge because I didn't want to make too much noise with a hammer trying to flatten the caps. Plus, I wasn't sure how "even" the edges would come out using a hammer.

The wait is finally over since I got my No More Shim Embossing Mat! It made flattening these caps a breeze!!! Below is a video on how easy it is to flatten bottlecaps with a Big Shot or Cuttlebug.

Once the caps were flattened, I used my HK PSA stamps and a 1" circle punch to create different centers. Add a magnet to the back and done!

We'll be doing a FREE Demo next weekend, Saturday 8/20 from 10:30am - 12pm
