I'm at Copics Certification Class!!

I have been waiting for this day for so long!!  You know how much I love my Copics, well I am so happy that there was enough space for me to get into the class being taught in Sarasota by Sally Lynn.

I am going to be Copics Certified!! Woohoo!!

I can't wait to learn some new tips and techniques and to get some practice on this involved type of coloring!

I will be sure to share some of the wonderful things I learn when I get back!!

So, I have a little something I made with {ippity} to share with you.  I made this for a magazine call...wish me luck.  I would be so happy to get some of my cards showcasing {ippity} published!

This is called Family...

It uses the word Family from the Life's Little Moments kit, and the house and sentiment (which I masked and paper pieced) from the Simply Home set.  Both sets are {ippity}I really like the colors.  I based them off the K & Co. DP mat pad that I used.  It came with the scalloped edges and all.

I used my Stamp-a-majig and masking with post-it-notes to break the sentiment up like you see it here. I wanted it to fit down the whole side of the image panel.  The flowers are from Prima.  The brads from Basic Grey and MM.

I "colored" the house in by using both Copic markers and some paper piecing with some coordinating paper from the same K & Co. Mat Pad.  I also used my Copics to highlight the words LOVE and HOME in the sentiment. I topped the whole thing off with this pretty velvet ribbon from MM that I gathered on my sewing machine and adhered by stitching the ends and securing it with some tacky tape.   I machine stitched the image panel and the top and bottom edges of the card too!

Well that is all I have for you today.  Should you be interested in buying either of the {ippity}sets you see used here, please contact me via email ( or visit me at my {ippity} Sales Blog.

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with the kind of love that turns your house into a home!
