Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hello dear bloggers!
I can't believe this is my first time to participate in the monthly blog hop! It seems like every month for the past 6 months I am always out of town, or tied up in work deadlines or something like that. Last month I was moving, and while, I am still in transition, atleast I have some time on my little laptop while my hubby watches football tonight.

THE CHALLENGE:
I loved Nichole's challenge to share a recent technique I learned from another stamper. I LOVE checking out blogs and being inspired. My recent little trick was picked up from the oh-so-amazing Debbie Olson! I saw that she had colored some rhinestones with her fabulous Copic Markers and it matched her project perfectly. No joke, I think my jaw dropped when I saw her post! Oh the joy! Oh the fun! I am totally on a bling kick lately, and the Copic trick just stepped it up to a whole-notha-level!!:) My TRICK: COPIC CUSTOMIZING (on bling and ribbons)

Below you can see the rhinestones in the middle of the hand cut flower (via BoBunny) which were colored to match the designer paper. The pink rhinestones around it AND the three different shades of ribbon were also colored with Copics, too!

Details, Details!
>>Papertrey Saves the Day! I don't think there is any more perfect cardstock than the PTI Perfect Match line! This card base features Hibiscus Burst.
>>BoBunny was the mastermind behind their doublesided papers. Love them!
>>The sentiment is compliments of "Close to My Heart" and colored with Copics, (and rhinestones around it as well.)


Well, I have had a blast hopping on over to see other's fun stuff! Hope you enjoy it, too!

I am officially 17 days away from sleeping in my own bed in my own new house! I will be giving some blog updates on all my moving details. Thanks so much for all your kind words and support. I am looking forward to be delightful fall season as we feel more and more at home in North Carolina! :)

Smiles,
Tiffany

  3. I love coloring things with Copics!! I have even managed to stamp with them, lol... now I buy only clear bling and to the matchy-matchy; it costs less to do that, too!

  4. I love this! (What's funny is that I swear I used *your* stamp set in *my* blog hop post!! Is that possible??)

  5. Oh yes, clear bling is the best THING!!! ;-) I knew when I learned that fact about Copics that I had to somehow make them mine! Now I've added the airbrush system & LOVE it, but it's a very inexpensive one from Harbor Freight & works GREAT! Your card is simply AMAZING!!!
