Hellooo and welcome to my edition of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I made a handful of cute little 3×3 cards to showcase on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog and I decided to feature a super step-by-step tutorial of Copic ombré how-to here. You’ll definitely want to stop by the Sweet blog as there’s a giveaway there and don’t forget to leave a comment down below as well — you’ll be entered to win some goodies from me, too!
Jumping right into it, I absolutely LOVE sentiment stamps and alphabets that our outlined so that I can leave them as is or color them in! I know, I know — ombré is probably on its way out of the fashion trend, but I still love it in papercrafts! The best way to create this effect is to use the feather technique with Copic pens.
For my card, I used the following Copic colors: E000 | E21 | E23 | E25 | E29
I’m one of those that colors from dark to light and I truly think that it’s the best way to create the ombré effect. I always lay down my darkest color and then flick/feather in my lighter colors after. Excuse my messy markers; it’s been a long time since I’ve given them a cleaning!
Adding in some extra sweet: I truly think that every coffee lover needs this Cuppa Coffee in their stash so I’m giving away the stamp set and throwing in some Coffee Crisp and Aero chocolates into the package for good measure! Coffee Crisp is a Canadian exclusive and is one of my faves!
Leave me a comment telling me what’s your favorite snack with coffee for your chance to WIN.
Thanks so much for hanging out with me today, coffee lovers!
