Copic Storage & Wild Orchids

Wild Orchids 1 - OHS

Hey friends!  

So sorry that I haven't posted in 10 days!  Gosh, that went fast!  I was away at Creativation (formerly known as CHA…and forever known as CHA in my brain) for 8 days.  I had a wonderful time teaching Copic Certifications and the Flowers Workshop, sitting in on the new 2017 series of Workshops, and of course, attending the trade show.  The best part is the people!  I always enjoy catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones as well.  Hey, if you haven't checked out the 2017 schedule of Copic classes, click HERE to see them all.  I DO hope I'll get to see you in a class this year!  (Hint… I'll be in Houston on February 17 & 18 and then in Anaheim on March 10 & 11.)  

Now, on to that card up there!  I created it with the new Ruffled Wild Orchids digital stamp set from Power Poppy.  The pretty patterned papers are from The Sweetest Thing collection from My Mind's Eye.  It's an oldie, but goodie.

I printed the image on X-Press It Blending Card with black ink, and colored it with the following Copic Markers.

I added the opaque white dots to the flower petals with my Pearl White Kirarina WINK Pen.  LOVE that pen…so easy to use and such a brilliant, opaque white!  Oh, and it comes in 18 different colors too…all of them beautifully opaque.

Here's a peek at the inside of my card:

I did my usual simple gussy up of the inside…strip of patterned paper & carefully highlighted sentiment.

Before I go today, I thought I'd share how I organize my Copic Markers.

When I'm at home, my markers rest in little cubbies that sit on my desk right in front of my main work station.  Since I use my Copics on nearly every project I create, it's important to me that they are super easy to access.  

Mine are in four individual Color Cubbies that I purchased long ago from Studio 3 Solutions.  They are no longer in business; however, you can purchase a very similar item at Stamp-n-Storage.  It's called the Marker Nook.  Be forewarned, they have a LOT of cool storage products over there!

Next to my markers, I have my Various Inks stored in a clear plastic divided retail display unit.  I snagged mine at the end of a trade show, before it found it's way into a trash can. 🙂

When I'm on the go (which is often), I carry a 72 piece Copic Wallet with me full of an assortment of colors, depending on what I'm planning to color while I'm away.  Unfortunately, the wallets are out of stock right now; but hopefully they'll be back in stock soon!

When I'm traveling and I want more than 72 markers (ummm…always), I carry them in this awesome Art Case from Copic.  It comes in several pretty colors; but mine is the gray one.  It's super durable, secure, and oh-so-classy! 🙂

You may not realize this; but Copic has a whole selection of wonderful storage solutions for your Copic Markers!  Click HERE to check them out.

I hope you've enjoyed a little peek at how I store my markers.  

Have a beautiful day, friends!
