Love Machine!

Hi there! Happy Monday to you! We’re pleased to have Sandy Allnock as a guest designer on our blog today! She is such an awesome Copic color-er, so be sure to watch her video in its entirety to get lots of tips & tricks!!



I’m looking forward to a year full of creative inspiration – so let’s get started today by doing a little laundry, why don’t we?

This little deceptively simple stamp in the Paper Smooches “Squeaky Clean” set can be a star feature on a love card when colored to look dimensional with your Copic Markers. Watch this short video to see two ways to pull that off!

Both images are stamped on Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock. Copic Colors: R24, R37, R89, W3, W0, W00. And a white Signo pen was used for the highlighting.

The first card made from these colored images is totally clean and simple; the sentiment was heat embossed with clear embossing powder onto a black card base (it’s white inside); the last sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder. Add the washing machine using a little Stamp Runner, and voilá! Easy peasy card for your sweetie!

The design on this second card is a little more complex, using papers from BoBunny’s Natural Necessities 6×6 from the Double Dots line, and some Viva Paper Pen (opal) for the buttons on the washer as well as some additional decoration on the card.

  1. I actually love the gray heart vs with the red machine. Yes, sandi I always thought it would be cool to own red appliances to, but if I put that much money in a appliance then I would feel like I need to dress up or something to be in my laundry room, haha.

  2. Sandy is, indeed, a whiz when it comes to Copics. She is also a whiz at running OWH. Nice work, as always.
