Copic Coloured Thanks Card | Studio Katia A Cup Of Thanks Stamp Set

Updated: Sep 14


Hello all!! Thank you so much for stopping by!! We have an extra video for this week, I have been lucky enough to join in on a small crafter Youtuber hop and this card is my contribution. I have how to hop along in the video posted below, but let's start with my step by step for this card.


To start I stamped the floral image, which is a stamp by Studio Katia called A cup of thanks by the way, in Copic safe ink, in this case, I used Gina K's Amalgam ink. This is a brand new stamp so I did have to stamp it a few times to get a good image. I stamped it onto a piece of 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock.


I started with the Biggest bloom and chose Y06, Y08, and Y19 for my blend for this bloom, I wanted the lighted part of the flower to be the outside of the petal so I focused the darkest colours on the inside of the petals. I didn't really focus on a light source for my colouring, I was more worried about making the images look like they had some depth and dimension. I always work lightest to darkest then back again to blend.


I don't think there is any wrong way to learn Copic colouring, However, like everything, it will take some practice and I am by no means a proficient colourist but I love it so I keep trying to get better. For the purple bloom, I used V04, V15, and V17 for this flower I focused the darkest colours towards the outside of the petal and where any object overlapped another. Still sticking with my lightest to darkest and back again.


Next is the coral-pink bloom and buds, for those, I used R02, R22 and R14 focusing the darkest colour on the base of the petals. There's a fair amount of greenery in this image and I chose to colour it all the same. For the greenery, I used G12, G02 and YG09 focusing the darkest colour to the centre of the leaves trying to create some dimension to the leaves. The Berries were next and I only used two colours on such a small area, B12 and B04, using the darkest colour only to attempt a circle looking shape.


Now we have the cup and this is where I struggled a bit, I really wanted a white cup, However, for something to look white and still have dimension you need to shade the image. I used C1, C3 and C5 to create the shadows on the cup and honestly, I'm not sure I succeeded, but this is where practice comes in so I will just have to keep trying.


Once all the colouring was done I chose to fussy cut out my image, I did wonder if I should try to cut out the handle but in the end, I left it white, when I look at the card I still wonder if I should have cut it out but its too late now. If you have been around here for a while you will know that I love to matte all my cards on black cardstock, this card was no exception. I used a white side folding A2 card base which when folded is 4 1/4 by 5/12, I cut my black matte to be 1/8 of an inch smaller than my card base and my Cotton Candy cardstock to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than my black matte.


The pink panel was a bit too plain for my liking so I used Simon Says Stamp's Rose Lattice Background stamp and some Versamark ink to create a watermark look on the background giving the pink panel a bit more interest but keeping it subtle. For my sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamps Bold Thanks Wafer Die and cut 3 layers glueing them on top of each other, I wanted to used it as a base for my cup floral to ground the image a bit.


All that was left was to assemble all my pieces, using Nuvo Deluxe glue I glued down the Thanks sentiment, then the floral cup image right on top of my thanks sentiment. Once that was dry I glued down all my panels to the base of the card. OH! I forgot to mention that I did also stamp the same floral image in Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink inside the card base to add a little excitement and I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to add some sparkle to the flowers.


To finish the card off I added some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals randomly on the card sticking to an uneven amount. That's the card for the hop, I hope you enjoyed the Copic colouring!! There's a video below if you would like to check that out and a full supplies list under the video. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card! Can't wait to see you again on Monday.
