Fiskateer Blog Hop! and extra goodie!

Welcome to the Fiskateer Blog Hop! If you came here from Groovy Deb's (#2644) blog, you're in the right spot!! If you have stumbled upon the blog hop you can start at the beginning at

Thanks for stopping by!  Monday I was lucky enough to take a Copic Certification Class in Pittsburgh where I was officially made a Copic Certified Designer.  Here is the project I made to share with you:

I started with a white cardstock base, and ran a piece of Prima patterned paper (orange and pink) thru the cuttlebug with a tim holtz embossing folder and glued that down to my card base.

Here is my image (i've been using this alot lately!) its a C.C. Designs Stamp from the Sugarplums collection and its called "Spring Couple".  They're just so cute! anyways, here are the copic colors i used: C1, C3, E44, E57, YR07, R02, R24,Y08, Y04, B23, B26, V12, V15.  Stamped with memento ink.

I cut out my stamped image with my Fiskars craft mat, finger tip craft knife and of course my orange handled scissors!

I cut out a piece of light lavender using a nestabilities label die. and put my stamped image on top of that.

I decided my diecut was boring so i used an copic multiliner and a copic marker (V09) to edge and decorate.

I added ribbon and glued down my stamped image and diecut over top. I tied a bow with the ribbon seperate and attached it to the card after.

Here is my finished card! I hope you like it!!

Alrighty and I have an extra special prize to give away for the blog hop! A little giveaway just for stopping by on my blog!

So leave a comment and I'll enter you into a drawing for an Ultra ShapeXpress and some stickers!!!

I haven't tried Copics yet. They seem to give you a lot of options when coloring your item. Thanks for the chance at winning the prize. :)

Godzoned said...

congrats on the Copic class.
Copics are so expensive here in NZ. So will be doing similar stuff soon with Stampin Up markers and blender pens... heaps cheaper even with current price rises due to GST going up.

Your card is awesome and I love that texture!

thanks for a chance to win some goodies. (although if I do I'd love the stickers but I already have the USE - 2 actually- so pass it on to someone else) - oh I'm so cheeky!
