Hello, my name is Cheryl and I have been a crazy stamper for roughly 14 years. I am fortunate to live in sunny Albuquerque, NM, smack dab in the Land of Enchantment, with my wonderful husband and our 3 furry faced feline house guests. A couple of years ago, I gave up the hum drum routine of a stagnant managerial job and now focus entirely on cardmaking and teaching card classes at the local rubber stamp store. It’s certainly a lifestyle change, but everyday it’s a joy to wake up and spend the day at my craft desk, up to my elbows in paper, stamps, and of course, Copics ;D
Until I found Copics, I steered clear of coloring images for my cards. I wasn’t comfortable with pencils and other types of markers didn’t quite give me the finished result I was looking for. Now, I can’t imagine a world without color and Copics. What a dreary place that would be!
I am thrilled to be a part of this group of talented artists, whom I have idolized for a very long time :)
Hi I’m Heather, I’ve been 50 something for a few years now. I have two children, a daughter who has two sons and a son who has one daughter.
My cat (Chester) and I have recently moved from Blackburn, Lancashire in the UK to Bergen in Germany. My son and family live here and I wanted to spend a little time with and around them.
I worked as a beauty/holistic therapist until I retired, prior to coming to Germany, but I trained originally to do graphic design. I have been crafting of one type or another all my life but only started papercrafting a few years ago. About three years ago I tried stamping and that was it – an addiction was born and from there came blogging – my second addiction – I have ‘met’ so many wonderful blogging people, made so many cyber friends and am amazed at the awesome talent out there.
I’ve tried all mediums available but my first love has to be my Copics.
I’m a very proud Army wife since 1990 to the most amazing (and patient) man, and mom to two awesome teenage boys. We’ve lived all over the globe thanks to the military, but we call Arizona home.
I began coloring with ChartPak and Prismacolor graphic markers in design school. Years later, one of my own students brought Copics to class and I tried them out. Now I’m hooked!! I’m so thrilled to be a part of such a talented team of artists, and to be able to share my love of coloring and crafting with you all.
Hi my name is Jodi, I live in Honolulu, Hawaii and am newly and happily married to my hubby who is very supportive of my love for rubberstamping. I have been stamping for as long as I can remember and love to stamp and create cards and projects to share with everyone. My recent love are my copic pens which are my main media for coloring.
I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1968. I am a mother of 4 great kids and 8 (soon to be 9) grandkids. I live in sunny Florida and I work part-time as the Financial Secretary for our church. I have enjoyed a multitude of crafts for almost 40 years, and I must say that I am blessed by, challenged with, and addicted to the art of stamping. I never dreamed I could be having so much fun or enjoying so many talented people as I’ve met since I got into stamping. I also never dreamed I’d love the Copic markers as much as I do or that I’d get beyond being intimidated by them, but while my use of them is far from perfect I do love them and I’m no longer scared of them (mostly.)
I am so honored to be a part of this talented Design Team.
I have always loved to color since I was young. Since starting my rubber stamp hobby, I have used water colors (just a few tries) switched to Prismacolored Color Pencils then finally to Copic Sketch markers. I only have limited craft time and I have found that using Copic markers is way fast compared to the other mediums. They are all wonderful to use but Copic markers are my favorite (coloring medium) as of late.
Hello from Wisconsin! I have three amazing grown children and EIGHT grandkids! I’ve been using my beloved Copics since my VERY first class at Gina K Design’s in September of 2008…and have never looked back since! I’m totally smitten with these magical markers! I have dreamed of this blog for a very long time and am so happy that these amazingly talented artists are joining me in this venture. I truly hope this site is as valuable to you, as it is to me, in your endeavor to “master” the amazing Copic marker!
The smooth color and vibrant tones of Copic markers make me smile. Using Copics for airbrushing has me dreaming in soft, cloudy colors! The first Copic markers I bought were Ciaos: R59 (Cardinal Red), B39 (Prussian Blue) and G99 (Olive Green) with a Colorless Blender (of course). – Go ahead, laugh. It’s ok. - I couldn’t figure out why these markers wouldn’t blend but I was determined to make it happen! With a little online research and LOTS of practice, I slowly introduced my paper crafting projects to magnificent color, the Copic Way! I enjoy helping others get through similar Copic dilemmas and look forward to sharing my love for all things Copic. I began modern scrapbooking in 2003 and prefer projects with classic handmade, coordinating elements. My husband George and I live in Burlington, NJ. I am blessed with three grown children and a granddaughter. I currently work full-time as an executive secretary for the State.
I am a WAHM to 2 children (11 & 13) and wife to a very supportive & lovin’ husband. I am an ADD, obsessive, passionate, lover of all things stamping & papercrafting. I live in Leesburg, VA with my family & our 7 “furbabies”. I am a proud designer for many wonderful stores & stamp companies & I love nothing better to sit & color my stamped images with Copics!!
