Andrea Walford Celebrates STAMPtember™ with Simon



Please join us in welcoming Andrea Walford to our STAMPtember™ celebrations.  Andrea has been involved in the paper arts industry for many years and works as a founding mother of Paper Crafter's LibraryPCL is a great resource for education and inspiration.  (Be sure to check it out;) As an incredibly talented artist, Andrea excels at teaching.  She is sharing some of her outstanding coloring and card making projects with us today, but I am also a fan of her mixed media work that she has recently begun to share with us in her personal blog.

 

From Andrea:
Hasn't STAMPtember™  been awesome so far?  I know I've certainly been inspired by all the great projects and tutorials!  With the kids having gone back to school yesterday - including my youngest who started JK - I all of a sudden find myself having a LOT more time to create. Which is why I decided to pull out my Copic markers. I've owned Copic markers for 4 years now, and am about 10 markers short of owning the entire collection (much to my husband's chagrin LOL). I love the vibrant colors, I love how relaxing coloring is, and I love seeing the beautiful end result.

For my stamp selection, since I'm in the "back-to-school " frame of mind, I decided to use the Caterpillar stamp set from Inky Antics as my focal point. I combined that stamp set with some of my favorite greetings from Paper Smooches to create three different teacher thank you cards.   

 
Teacher We Appreciate You Card

 

Thanks Ever So Much Card




Thanks So Much Card

I hope today's projects inspired you to pull out your own Copic Markers, or, if you don't have any yet, maybe you'll be inspired to give them a try.  Coloring with Copics is easier than it looks, and of course we have a whole series of video tutorials available to our Paper Crafter's Library members.


We hope you enjoy these beautiful cards from Andrea and are inspired to take some time to stamp today!!

Did you know that for a limited time, all Copic Sketch Markers at Simon Says Stamp are just $5.49 each!  The suggested retail is $6.99 and our low price of $5.49 won't last much longer.  We strive to be a one stop shop, so stock up on all of your Copic supplies while you can!  No coupon necessary!

  16. I am loving your caterpillar, so much personality! Great cards. Back in the 80's(seems like forever ago) when my littles were in school, I never noticed anyone doing things like that for teacher. Of course, at the end of the year, there was always some kind of Teacher Appreciation, but never anything at the beginning.

  19. That caterpillar is great fun. The white background works really well on these cards and helps the images pop right off the page. Fab projects. Maddy x
