The Grillfather

Hi readers! We’re back with an awesome tutorial from the one and only amazing Copic color-er, Sandy Allnock! I’m amazed at her skills with each and every video & tutorial! If you’re an expert or a beginner, Sandy has graciously provided 3 options of getting some cool smoke effects for your Grill father!


I always love making cards for guys – I’m not much for flowers and butterflies but give me a shot at something funny for guys and I get all kinds of happy! The line of Everyday Hero stamps from Art Impressions are right up my alley! Fun to color, they make you laugh – and there are lots of options to have fun with them!

In the video, I promised you’d have the color list to color dad himself, so here you go:

I don’t know if your Father’s Day will require a call to 911 or a run in the house for the fire extinguisher – but whatever you’re up to, make it a great day! Leave me a comment below and let me know what your dad’s favorite thing to do is (or was) on his day!


Thanks for reading today and thanks to Sandy for giving us great inspiration! Now, who’s hungry?

  1. I like the top one best. I enjoy seeing the edge of the BBQ. The trees are more detailed and although different than the other one with lots of billowy smoke, it still has plenty of fiery and smokey goodness. I like the yellow glow best on him too. Not too many guys out there who appreciate how much time goes into a card like this. I’m guessing 3 hours? I’m not much of a red meat eater and my dad makes everything rare to bloody anyways so he doesn’t make my steaks for me.

  2. I like my steak well done, but with a little bit of juice.They must be tender and juicy! I love this video Sandy. I remember you from the OWH videos.

  3. Once again, Sandy, you are amazing! Thank you for sharing your talent with us. This card reminds me of my husband- smoke and all.

  4. LOVE IT!!
    I just have a question.. I have a ton of bleeding beyond the stamped lines… why?
    Wrong paper? Too heavy handed? My blending never looks quite blended…
    Frustrated! I refuse to admit I can’t make Copic’s work for me!!

  5. I love Art Impression stamps! The coloring on this is superb! Thanks for sharing with us how to make a fire and smoke. lol
