Copic Winter Scene Tutorial


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a simple winter scene in Copics! For my card, I chose to use the adorable Reindeer Games stamp set by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - a must have for all your winter cards! 

I stamped a reindeer and the little house from the set in Wicked Black Hybrid Ink and then die cut my image with an MFT Die. As you can see below, I left a blank space at the bottom on the left - I will add another reindeer on foam squares in that space at the end.


I used my Krafty Scenery Stencil to make the black line of the hill longer, using a Copic multiliner, and I also used it to draw a mountain on the right with my B000 Copic. I coloured the sky in B000 and B00, sweeping from left to right and right to left.


Then I added a few shapes in the background in G20 and V20, to suggest trees in the distance. I then coloured the snow in C1, V20 and BG000 (in that order).


I coloured the little house in E51, 53 - E04 and E77 for the door, Y00 and E77 for the window. 


I then coloured my reindeer (plus another one that will be added on the left on foam squares). The browns I used are E71, 74, 77 and E40, 41, 42 for the light brown. I added R20 and E41 to the inside of the ears to tone them down a bit, Y26 for the collar, and R35, 39, G46 for the holly.


I stamped a sentiment from the Reindeer Games stamp set and added my second reindeer on foam squares for a bit of dimension. 


I then layered my die-cut scene with another MFT die cut and put it on my card. Oh and I added a few white dots in acrylic paint for snow gently falling. 


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will find it helpful to create simple winter scenes! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Oh Copic Various Inks!


Hello everyone! During the Instructors' Meeting in Germany, we were lucky to have a workshop with Kathrin Bartholomäus who makes beautiful fluid art and we got to play with our Copic Refills. I love the effects you can get, so I decided to play a bit for my Copic Marker Europe post:)

The basic supplies for that are Yupo paper, Alcohol (I used 95% Alcohol) and Copic Various Ink Refills.

I cut my Yupo into 4 pieces of paper (about the size of an ATC) and randomly added Inks and alcohol to my paper.


Blue card: B37, 69, BG05
Aqua card: B37, BG05, 09
Purple card: RV02, V09
Red card: R20, 37, YR04 (and Q tips to remove some colour)


I then coloured a cute little dog by Tiddly Inks (Holly Jolly Christmas) in Copics, three times for my cards. 

Dog: C0, 1, 3
Hat: C7, R35, 37, 39, W0, 1, 3
The holly was done in gel pen.


I decided to use 2 of my Yupo cards without touching the backgrounds - I simply put my dog on foam squares, added Make it Crafty Chipboard coloured in acrylic paint and added a bit of gold on the edges of my first card and white for the second card with an acrylic marker.

Make it Crafty Chipboard used:



For my purple card, I thought I would make a simple scene. I used white acrylic paint for the snow at the bottom (the white can be a bit tinted by the ink underneath but I don't think it is a problem). For the trees, I used a black Pitt pen. I added a few snowflakes in acrylic paint and a bit of white on the edges of the card for a frosty look.


For the red card, I added gold acrylic paint on the edges of the card and a few gold dots and chose to only add a big Make it Crafty Merry Christmas Outline Sentiment Chipboard painted in acrylic too.

And here are my four little cards together:


Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
