I'm keeping a scrapbook of my mom's chocolate lab (I gave him to her as an early retirement (and you can't change your mind because the dog needs you-LOL!) gift. I have been collecting and collecting all the canine DP I can find, but I don't think I have this!

Your coloring is just phenomenal!
Thanks!! The DP is the DCWV Pets Stack.....full of fun, glittery, pet-themed papers!! I got mine at Joann, on sale of course

This one has been around for a long time. Hopefully they don't go under. I've been helping them get "up to date" items though. They now carry nesties - I show them the nesties last fall and they fell in love with them. They are so pleased since they can't keep them in stock now!!! They places their first copics order a few weeks ago and have people asking when they are going to be available - so hopefully they sell good for them also.

I knew he was going to be cute to color when I ordered him last week! That is just too cute a card and coloring! I just keep hoping the rush is over at High Hopes and that I will get my order ASAP but with their images are so cute I'm certain I'm not the only one.

Great job and very cute stamp - I really don't need another stamp company addiction.

One question, when you registered on the website, did you get any response right away? I've registered for one in Ohio and have not heard anything back (but it's not technically open to the public either)...

That's fabulous that you're going to a certification class. I'd love to do that, and wish they'd set one up for down here in Texas. I'd sign up in a heartbeat.

Give Cris a call. If you are not an owner, designer, etc., call to make sure she has you on the waiting list for when it opens.

They usually open up for anyone 2-3 weeks before the class. I called and ask and she put me on the waiting list for when it opened up. 2 weeks before the class it hadn't been marked as full or opened, so I called her to ask.

Hopefully you get into it. I'm anxious to go to it tomorrow!!

Hi Barb:

I'm driving up from VA to attend tomorrow. I am so excited that I won't be able to sleep for fear of 'oversleeping' my alarm! I am thrilled that I was able to get into the class. I'd love to teach but there aren't too many stores near me that carry them. Enjoy the class tomorrow!!

I ordered 4 different times and went from 0 - 102!

1st order I thought I would just get the SU color matches that I use the most.
2nd order I needed all of the rest of the SU matches and In Colors.
3rd order I needed gray and earths for people & animals.
4th ordered I realized I needed more light colors.

Super addictive, but I have a great assortment now and after getting Memento ink and Gina K paper have been coloring up a storm. I have a long way to go in the coloring department!

I placed 3 and the first one kind of in anticipation but like you, I was starting with zero (and I'd never used them before). So my first order was for 33 and the glitter pens.
2nd order was for 42 more so that I had 75 and was a gift to myself out of my tax $$.
3rd order arrived yesterday and was for 20 so I'd have 95 and the opaque paint, I like the way it looks but not gotta learn to use that too.

I played with them most the day today, however, didn't color one thing, just colored in my chart, made a new color chart on the paper I'll be stamping on and then some test blending and shadowing with different color combos. Tomorrow I hope to color images. I know I've 2 cards to make.

That's a really nice job!! I hope mine start looking as cute but I guess I better practice instead of play with them coloring an image instead of blending colors or on the computer.

Can I color images printed on my inkjet printer? I am {fairly} certain a laser printer is fine, but not sure about inkjet. Anyone know?
TIA

I bought a set at Ebay yesterday. I did a search for Ciao Copics and looked at each set. You can enlarge the color charts of each set. The Japanese sets provided the largest pictures. That helped in making my final decision. BTW, I got the C set because it contained many pastels.

It depends on what you color, but for me I went for skin & hair colors first; then added blues & greens for water/sky/foliage, and pinks because I have a 6 yo dd!

You have a 50/50 chance it may work. I've heard of some people that have no problems with Inkjet printed images, but also by experience I have seen most of the inkjet inks bleed.

Laser/Copies do work well with Copics.

If shipping was $2, it was probably All That Scraps....

Can someone tell me, and I'm sure this is on Marianne's blog in which I'm trying to read through right now while school is out but just in case I get a quicker answer here..............when I'm blending, which color do I blend with? This is what I mean........say I'm using B24 as my base, I color my image, then I add B21 for highlighting and B32 for shadowing........which color do I use to go over this and blend it all with, the B24 right? If I use my colorless blender it gets spotty. OR do I use a gray?

Also, I've seen a lot of outlining images with a gray and I like the way it looks mostly, but is it necessary? Why do we do it? Any other ideas on making a shadow like that? I'm asking because I'm coloring Charlie (from Clear Dollar Stamps, he is the CUTEST) and his legs are just a black line so I color over them with my brown and then when I'm outlining it's like I'm making his legs even bigger so I've trid to make a small gray outline. Also, he's frolicking through daisies so when I outline them I feel I need to fill in the tiny white spaces in between. Make sense? I'll try to post a picture in a few. He's turned out pretty cute if I must say so and pat myself on the back.

As I've received my copics, I cannot believe how gorgeous the colors are, I love some of these colors. They're just so vibrant when they need to be and soft and pretty when they need to be. I wish SU would come out with some of these colors. I think it's R29 or RV twenty something, it's like a hot pink, that is actualy one of my favorite colors right now.......and it's a bright one, go figure. I just had to say that because I can sit and look at my little color chart I made so I know how the colors look on the paper I'm using and think, how pretty!! Yah, I know, I'm a dork but I know you all do it too......or we look in admirement at what holds our copics, it's like a bouquet of flowers. Hehehe! I might need a nap, I'm feeling a bit slap happy.

If I use my colorless blender it gets spotty. OR do I use a gray?

Blend with the lightest shade, most start with the lightest, add darker shading, then color over with lightest.

Outlining grounds your figures, maybe just color 2 and compare, and trust me you will start doing it. I sometimes use a pale shade of blue for it. I would probably just use a thin gray and no brown on stick legs.

Thank you. The ones I've done do seem to look better, I was just curious as to why really and if everyone did it, some you can't tell and after mine dries, sometimes you can't tell either.

I'll try the gray on the legs but I'm scared he will look like he's missing legs, haha!!

After a call with my parents, I'm off to finish a couple cards I started yesterday and laundry............ick on the laundry!

Laser/Copies do work well with Copics.
I have an older HP ink jet (7760 Photosmart) and have had problems with ink bleeding when the paper gets wet after printing so I was very skeptical about coloring printed images. I experimented with different types of paper (GP cardstock, watercolor paper and regular old everyday printer paper) and had zero problems with bleeding using Copics, Bics or SU markers. Go figure. . . I used images that were brushes in Photoshop (because that's the closest thing I had to digital stamps) and I thought that the "lines" were a little thick and "flat" for my tastes-I don't know if actual digital stamps look nicer.

You'll just have to experiment.

I know this is probably posted somewhere in this thread so sorry if it's repetitive. Just didn't want to go find it and thought it may help someone else.

Anyhow, while coloring and making cards today I remembered somewhere that someone said you can use copic markers to make colored ribbon. I took some of my WW ribbon, colored with Y17 and viola a perfect match to my glorious green cs. I was able to finish some St. Patty's day cards with perfectly matched ribbon. It dried very, very quickly. No smearing and no messy fingers. IMO much better than using a reinker to match ribbon. Well off to try some more colors.

Hope this helps someone else.

I don't know if anyone can use more Copics but............ for 3 days KraftyatKrafts is having a 50% off all inventory and the Sketch markers come out to $3.49. You don't see the 50% till you put it in your cart. They don't have all the colors but maybe some you need. The shipping doesn't seem a lot either. Hope I have enabled all that has enabled me, LOL.

I know that there are tons of threads on here about Copic markers but I thought it would be fun to have a "Copic Chatter" like there is a "Cricut Chatter".

Well, my copic collection just doubled! Not hard to do when you only have 6. I order 6 more from KraftyatKrafts. I would have loved to have ordered more for that price but finances are not what I would like them to be and that is the best I can do right now, but I am thrilled. I do have a slew of Bic's and Sharpies (and a few Prismacolors) so I have mainly light colored copics. I know I am not in the same league with you ladies but I figured we all have to start somewhere and besides I know you would understand why I am so thrilled about markers!!!!!
