Hopping with StampNation


Today I’m part of a special hop with the girls of StampNation.

Why you ask? 2 reasons!

First, I am sponsoring the StampNation Challenge this month where the winner can choose a Some Odd Girl stamp set or 3 digi stamps of their choice. 

This is my project for the awesome sketch…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used the Clear Stamp Fairy in Flight from Some Odd Girl and colored her with Copic Markers. I think used my Copic Airbrush to spray a sunset look on the shipping tag that I used as a background and gave her a sequin trail. Easy but pretty eye catching if I do say so myself.

Likey? I hope so! You’ll have to hop to see the rest of the inspiration and the starting sketch (I may or may not have deviated a smidge XD   )

Here are our hop stops:

Kristy <——————– ME, YO!

Members can enter the challenge this week with the winner announced on April 9.


Are you ready for the second reason?

I will be doing exclusive coloring and Copic tutorials for StampNation with the first one tomorrow! Starting tomorrow and for the following 5 weeks I’ll have a new Friday video getting you started with Copic Markers then a new monthly video the last Friday of the month. I can’t wait to share them. Hopefully my “instructor voice” doesn’t bore anyone  😛

I really appreciate the girls welcoming me in style!


How about another prize?

There are TWO 1- month subscriptions to StampNation hidden along the hop…comment on the blogs in the hop to enter to win. Two winners will be announced on Monday, March 31.


I hope you have a great hop! Now go give Maureen a big hello and a howdy for good measure!

    You are fabulous with copic markers – – you have a wonderful way with the hair – – I’ve noticed on other images in your gallery. And I LOVED her dress – the way you colored that as well. And the sequins – fun touch.

  8. I very big welcome Kristy. I don’t have a clue about using Copics and so very eager to learn from you on SN and exploring your blog too. Many thanks x
