Copic 101 Class

I had a Copic 101 class at the store on Tuesday evening with three fabulous ladies there to learn how to color beautifully with Copic markers! We had so much fun laughing and coloring together! After giving them a quick tutorial with each image, I turned them loose with the markers and they all did a fabulous job for being novices! Everyone got to make simple cards with their colored images when they were done because I do not like to have any class where customers don't walk away with a finished project! If you don't have something to take home and say "look what I made, Honey!" then what's the point, right?

The first card used Gracie Lollipop from Stamping Bella and my favorite Cosmo Cricket paper.
And I just can't get enough of this sweet Wheelbarrow of Love from Whipper Snapper Designs, so we had to make a Valentine card with it!
And finally this froggie card, which I'm sure looks familiar since I CASE'd my own design on this one for my Color Throwdown card yesterday! This frog is from Penny Black.
I'll be having another Copic 101 class sometime in the Spring, and am planning a Copic 102 class in March sometime, for those that are more advanced! If you're in Northeast Ohio and want to keep updated on my classes, check out the Stampers' Toy Store blog!

And speaking of Copic classes, I will be traveling to North Liberty, Indiana in March to teach some Copic classes at Joan's Garden! The exact date hasn't been determined yet, but I'll keep you posted! I know Joan has a group of ladies anxious for some Copic classes, but I think she has room in her classroom for a few more people, so if you're in northern Indiana, you might want to keep it in mind! I'd love to have you there! (AND I can't wait to see Joan again and stay in her beautiful home!)

Happy stamping, and happy Thursday!

Tammy, these cards are adorable! I have taken a copic class already and still wish I lived by you to take your class. I love the way you color. I hope your customers know how lucky they are, especially to have a teacher that cares they walk away with beautiful projects. You Rock!

These are all so cute! I LOVE that lollypop girl! The frog looks suspiciously familiar...but completely adorable!

All of them are seriously cute, Tammy! I know your customers loved taking something home!

Super cards! love the images, but of course it's your coloring that brings them to life! Sure wish I could take one of your classes! Have you thought about an online tutorial? If so, count me in! :) Smiles, Pam :)
