Default Card bases to match X-Press It?

For those of you who are using X-Press It Blending Card, what are you combining it with for your white card bases? I took a sample of X-Press It to a local Xpedx store and asked for the closest color match in heavyweight white cardstock. We weren't able to find a good one.

My usual card bases are Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, and of course that color isn't even close to the X-Press It. Have any of you found a good match?

Maybe try misting/airbrushing your cardstock slightly to match the xpress paper. Maybe layer it with another color so it isnt so noticeable?
I rarely use just white as a base without several layers ... so hope that helps.

I use X-Press It now almost exclusively for my colored images, cut out with a Nestability or matted, but I'm not concerned with a close color match to my white cardstock base because I add a layer of pattern paper to the front of the card, leaving a narrow white border on the folded card base. Just never bothered me that the X-Press It was not a match for the base, and I use a Cougar white.

I'm just starting with Copics and haven't ventured into the airbrush system yet. My initial reaction is that I'd rather just buy a ream of cardstock instead of attempting to color it to match. But if you or someone else tries your suggestions, I'd be interested to hear how it works.

Hi, Molly -- I've only done one card with Copics so far, and it has a thin green border between the Nestability Labels One (the image layer) and the white Fleur de Lis shapes behind it. That was too close for the colors not to match. I ended up coloring the original image on X-Press It, then photocopying it onto Neenah Classic Crest to match the rest of the layers.

There have been some gorgeous white-on-white examples in the gallery lately, and that's what I'd like to try. The only color would be the Copics in the image, and there would be no layer of DP to separate the X-Press It from the other layers.

The salesperson at Xpedx also recommended Cougar. Maybe I should go back for it. I bought two reams of Hammermill Color Copy Cover instead. The plan is to color on the HCC 80 lb and back it with the HCC 100 lb, but I haven't gotten that far yet. The HCC is not a particularly good match for X-Press It.

Default Copic coloring guides

In the gallery, under Anything But a Card, the Templates category has been expanded to Templates, Cards & More. The "More" now includes things like Copic coloring diagrams. Have any of you done them? I've uploaded two, and I'd be interested in seeing anyone else's versions.

I'd also like to recognize Lydia (Understandblue) and the SCS team for making such quick accommodations to allow this type of gallery content. The change was made in a couple of days, which is lightening fast when you consider the size and scope of this site. Thanks, Lydia!

Default Copic Coloring Guide

As you already know, I posted two days ago about my Copic coloring guides in the gallery. Well, guess what...? Copic Coloring Guide happens to be the title of a brand new book. (I had no idea it was in the works.) It was announced yesterday on the authors' blogs: Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker.

The new book is not available until June, with e-versions in May, but it definitely looks interesting. As far as Copic instructional materials go, it's nice to see something specifically geared to paper crafting rather than manga.

Congratulations on your big news, Colleen and Marianne!

I'm sure you will get lots of suggestions, mine is that in my opinion, oozak.com is THE best, consistently better prices & great customer service. Have fun!

Thanks from me too!! I didn't know the section "Anything but a card" with templates existed . Splitcoast is the Mother Lode for stampers. The more you dig the more treasures you find. LOL

Default GinaK 120 lb paper sticky and splotchy

Like most of you, I have a ton of cardstock. I spent at least 2 weeks of spare moments, researching the best copic paper to use. It seemed like such a waste to buy more paper when I have so much. I decided on the GinaK 120 lb Pure Luxury. Ugh.... I keep getting a sticky, splotchy mess, which I have learned is apparently because of the coating ??? Has anyone else encountered this? I just want to make sure it's not user error. Any insights will be greatly appreciated. I really would rather buy more markers than more paper LOL. Thanks so much Lisa

I like the GinaK paper very much. I've only used the 80 lb, but I would assume they have the same coating (if, in fact, they have a coating at all!). I've had no problems coloring on that paper with Copics. No sticky, splotchy messes at all.

I do like the new X-Press-It cardstock, too. I'm not a fan of the Neenah Solar White because the Copic inks bleed on it, especially the reds.

The Gina K is so smooth and dense, and has such small paper-fibers that sometimes many layers of dark marker colors on that paper will turn splotchy because the paper simply can't absorb the dye.

Try to blend less, especially with dark colors, or, if it seems like it's getting sticky, use the blender pen and carefully remove layers of color. I hope this helps!

I don't care for the Gina K card-stock. My #1 fave is Beckett Expression super-smooth 80# cover, then Paper Trey Ink select white (but it's heavy to cut if you like to cut images out be aware of that), Neenah Classic Crest but it has to be the super -smooth, then, Strathmore Bristol smooth that comes in a pad and then Canson Manga card that comes in a pad. I don't like the X-press it that everyone likes. oh, I just got another pad to try, Bee paper pad - it's really thin and really slick and was more like the X-press it paper. Good luck... I like to try everything as you can tell! lol

the super smooth Neenah Classic Crest doesn't bleed but the regular Neenah Classic Crest does... not sure everyone realizes there are two kinds.

Hi there,

perhaps the question has been asked before. But unfortunately I do not have the time to read all the threads

Normally i use Memento Ink with Copics and it works perfect.

But some swap friends prefer Stazon or Versafine. I know that Stazon doen´t work with Copics, but how about Versafine ? Does anyone have experience with it?

I love Versafine for regular stamping (always use it for sentiments and watercoloring) but it will make a mess of the tips of your markers and smear really ugly!

I need to order some copics but need them by next Saturday. What company has fast delivery with having to pay for express? Oozak does not have the colors I need in stock.

Merriartist.com usually has a great supply of copic pens and refills. The ship fast. I made a mistake with my order at 9 pm; the next morning at 10 am when I called they had to open the package to fix it. There customer service is great!

Wilma, CarpDiem is having a sale on Copics...$3.95 ea, and if you spend $50, it's free ship. I haven't ordered from them before, so I don't know how quickly they ship, but it's worth a try, since they are on sale. Maybe someone else on here has some experience with them, and can give you an idea of ship time.

Have you tried Scrap Mart? They have sale prices, but they are not as cheap as CarpDiem's clearance price. However, all copics ship free so you don't have to order $50 to get free shipping.
I know they ship very quickly.
If fact if you call the order in and explain your situation, I'll bet they will try to mail them the same day

Has anyone had any luck finding the 36 pc Copic Ciao Set E for less than $115? I've been waiting for JoAnn's to get it in so I could use a 50% off coupon, but no luck. Any idea when they might get it? TIA! Heidi

Default Color Swatch book question

I've been searching on this forum for info on a "color swatch book". I know Marianne from I Like Markers has one and suggests making one, if you have one, what size do you find most useful with regards to portability, small, yet large enough to be useable with the information referenced on the page.

What are you using for a swatch book? Marianne suggests
" I got an inexpensive little portfolio book and I keep plain stamped images on my personal favorite paper, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White"

Thanks for any suggestions

You can actually buy a portable swatch book. I found one at Wiggles & Giggles in Wetherfield, CT, when we were traveling to a gathering so you may find it at your local Copics store or online. Shop around for prices. Here's what it looks like:

I made my own swatchbook/ copic journal out of my favorite cardstock (at the time- Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White) cut down to 4.25X 5.5 and punched holes in each page and bound on* binder rings. I have some posts from it here: Copic Journal downloads for the pages are available here: Rachel's Copic Journal Pages
