New Card

Hello, everyone!
I haven't been posting recently because I was extremely busy but I today I made a card for a challenge and I decided to share it my blog. I don't have a lot of materials and since my ATS order has not arrived yet :( I used the same stamp set. The topic of the challenge was Valentine's Day ( a bit late I know but it's until the end of february). I didn't have any love sentiments so I wrote a sentiment by hand. It was a really quick card and it is also my second try to make a card but I hope you will like it :). I used Bazzill Cardstock, First edition Paper Pad, Brads, Ribbon and of course my copic markers to color my image!
That's all for today! And please share your thoughts about my card in the comments :))


Тази картичка е специално за Февруарското предизвикателство на Двете Елши, както и за Мър-Мяу-Забавлятелство Четвърто: "Любов ли бе да я опишеш" :))) Надявам се да Ви хареса!

So 2 days ago I went to my local  craft store in Vienna and I wasn't planning on buying anything else besides paper pads. And of course I ended up getting tons of stuff. I got 30 sheets of Bazzill Cardstock ( all kinds of colours), 3 paper pads which are absolutely stunning, the Tim Holts Non-stick Micro Serrated Multi Cutter, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eighteen, Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart Circles and my favorite- Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. And that's the reason I haven't posted anything- I just can't stop using my big shot! It is amazing..I need to buy more spellbinders though..and I still can't figure out how to emboss.. but I guess everything will come with time ..
See you soon <3

First Greeting Card

Hi everyone!
I just realized that all my post's headings begin with 'First' but as I said I am a beginner so everything is a first for me. Anyways I had some time today to make my first card but only the front..I will probably do the inside later. It is not perfect so don't be too hard on me. I will improve. So the materials I used are basically everything that I bought and my first stamp set. Here are some pictures:      
So this is the stamp I used and I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. Colors I used are E23, E27,E00,E02,E93 and for the little heart RV13, RV14 and I added some glitter just to make it shiny.

My First Stamp Set

Hello everyone!
So in my previous post I told you I bought some materials and one stamp set. It is the Inkadinkado Welcome Baby set and it has some adorable stamps and sentiments as well. It is perfect for baby cards or baby shower invitations. So what I did is I took a new sketch book and I stamped and colored all the stamps so that I keep track of my stamps. I can't wait to make a card with them..And here is a link to the stamp set I found online: http://www.eksuccessbrands.com/Inkadinkado/Products/Welcome_Baby_60-30108.htm

Bye <3

First things I got

Hii everyone!
 Yesterday I found out that there is a scrapbooking shop in Vienna so I went to check it out. It took me an hour to get there but it was worth it. I bought a couple of things including my first rubber stamps, patterned paper, memento ink and brads. I also bought some really cute ribbons and a silver glitter glue.  Everything was just about 60 euros.
I wanted to buy more stamps but I didn't really like them. However I got a baby stamp set which is really cute. I also got some card stock in different colors...
I am so glad I found this shop and I can't wait to make my first card.. I will be making it probably today or tomorrow and of course I will post  some pictures.

Which Copic Markers do I have and how I store them?

In this post I am going to talk about my Copic Markers (I don't have a lot of them yet). The Copic Markers are alcohol-based and they are really easy to blend. They come in different types: Ciao, Original and Sketch. Mine are the Sketch markers and I personally think they are the best. So you probably know there are different colour families so I am going to list mine and then when I post pictures of images you can know the colours I have used. Keep in mind that the letter stands for the colour family, then the first digit is the saturation and the second digit shows how light the marker is. And finally here is the list of my markers:
    B000, B00
[YR-Yellow Red]
    YR21, YR34
     R27, R29, R39
[RV-Red Violet]
     RV13, RV14, RV55, RV63, RV66
    E000, E00, E02, E23, E27, E55, E70, E74, E87, E93
[T-Toner Gray]
    Colorless blender

Basically, those are all the colours I have. I do own quite a lot of the earth tones but that's partly because I use them all the time. For example E000, E00 and E93 is my favorite combination so far. And the E23 and E27 I use for brown hair, although I really need the E25 to really blend the ones I do have. The other earth tones I haven't used yet because they were a gift and they weren't chosen very well as they don't go together at all. So if I want to use them I will have to buy colours that are   close to them( eg. I have E55 it would be nice to have like E57). My absolutely favourite colours are the red. They are really saturated and you should be very careful when using them but the colours are amazing.The next colours that I am definitely buying are the warm grays because they are awesome for shading.

In the beginning I used to store my markers in like different cases or whatever I found suitable but now I got a Copic wallet for my birthday and I am so happyyyy!!! I don't have enough markers to fill it yet and that's why I have also added a pencil and two multiliners that I use literally all the time.                                

So that's all about my collection of Copic Markerss :))
Bye <3

Hello everyone!
This is my first post ever so I thought I should say something about me. My name is Bilyana and I am 18 years old. Currently living and studying in Vienna but most likely I will be going to London in September. Anyway my obsession with scrapbooking and cardmaking is just starting so I am not that experienced and I hope my post will be helpful for other beginners like me. So far I have been coloring stamps for most of the time because I just got my Copic Markers 3 months ago and I needed some training. Now that I feel I know almost everything there is to know about the absolutely amazing Copic Markers I am starting to explore cardmaking and later scrapbooking. Once I get more experienced I can make some videos and give you some tips on how to start scrapbooking!
