Hello! Today I’m excited to be joining several talented ladies to help promote our dear friend & Copic coloring extraordinaire, Sandy Allnock and her brand spankin’ new Hex Chart. Sandy has been working on this for a long time, and she has done a wonderful job of organizing the colors in a way that anyone can understand. It is a must-have reference for the Copic lover.I’ve created a simple card using the Artful Flower stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. There was a lot of stamping, masking & Copic coloring involved and a little bit of Liquid Pearls in Opal to finish off the centers of the flowers.
Sandy’s Hex Chart is very helpful in finding the colors that go together and also to see what markers that I really want to purchase. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut using the same colors over and over, and I think this might help me to experiment with some new combinations, especially for hair and skin tones. I should also mention, if you are looking to learn some invaluable secrets from the master, Sandy shares her wealth of knowledge about Copic coloring in the Copic Markers for Cardmakers class.
Here’s a little video to show you how I created my card.
Five people purchasing the Hex Chart Bundle on or before May 10th will be randomly selected to win a hand-colored chart! Make sure and check out Sandy Allnock’s blog for more information.

Your card is beautiful and your Copic collection may be small, but your coloring skills are amazing.
Laura, you said your card was “simple”. Hello? What a beautiful card!!!! You crack me up LOL!! You did an exceptional job coloring and masking! I doesn’t matter how many Copics you have, it’s what you do with what you have that makes the difference:)
I always enjoy your videos Laura, you are so fun to listen to. LOL (Love your stories!) Your card is really beautiful. I don’t have ANY Copics yet so now YOU can feel better about what you have. HAHA This will be a great chart when I get some Copics.
You crack me up, too, Laura! Thanks, too, for showing how to use the chart to find colors that will blend well.
You are too funny! Always enjoy!

Beautiful card, love the colors you used for the flowers, they really pop. I have a small collection of Copics (around 100), so I’m right there with you – growing it a little at a time. I know Sandy’s awesome hex chart will help me decide what markers to purchase next.
Love the simplicity of your card. And the color combos, beautiful.

wow, i really like your card, your videos are always a joy to watch, thanks.
Beautiful card. Enjoyed your video so much. Sandy’s Hex chart will be so helpful for people like me with limited copics.
Love your vibrant flowers
Laura, I just love you! You make me laugh. You and I can have a “Copic pity party” together, lol! Slowly, slowly we’ll build those collections. 😉 Even without the full collection, your colouring is always beautiful! 🙂
Thank you for the video and great card!
Laura – love your little card – it’s good to make different sizes once in a while… And I’m busy working on my hex chart, which I downloaded as soon as I saw Sandy’s big reveal! Love it – but like you, I’m kind of whimpering because I don’t have as many as I thought I did! This chart will be a lot of help as I fill in those gaps, tho – thanks for the info and the pretty card – you always make me smile!
That would make a lovely Mother’s Day card, as well. Just beautiful!
This card and video are awesome and lovin’ the chart!
What a pretty card. I really enjoy watching your videos. I always learn something new!
Your flowers are so vibrant and the card really is great! I can tell the Hex Chart will be helpful with all Copic coloring.
Gorgeous card and colors, love how bright the flowers are.
What a beautiful, colorful card. I love the simplicity but the design and colors make it so special. Great job. Thanks for sharing.
Love the color combinations. Great card.
Your color choices are awesome, beautiful!
Can’t wait to use the hex chart. Amazed someone hasn’t created one sooner : )
Love the fast mask process!
“That’s all there is to it…” ? You make it look so simple to create a beautiful card. I am still cutting out the masks.. LOL! Thanks for showing how to use the hex chart to choose colors for the flowers.
I love your card! Cutting out masks is a pain, at least for me :-), but it gives the piece a lot of dimension. Die cutting leaves a white border around the flower and changes the look.
Sandy’s chart is fantastic!
I love love love your card! Your voiceovers are my favorite! You have the best sense of humor. I recently purchased more Copics and was happy to fill in more of my glaring white spaces. haha Thanks for such a fun video!

Love the simple design and bright colors of your card. Can’t wait to get started on my own hex chart.
Your card is lovely. I love florals and you have colored that one beautifully. I just printed off my Hex Chart and can’t wait to use it.
Your card is so bright and cheery (as are you). The color choices are perfect. You made the masking seem so effortless!.

Hola, Laura! You always have such great use of color. I have a quick question for you and your wealth of knowledge. What type of adhesive can I use to adhere vellum to a card so that it doesn’t show through? I made a card and thought the adhesive would dry clear and not show……….WRONG! Please help! Thanks ahead of time.
What a gorgeous card! Would be a great idea for my mom’s Mother’s Day card!
What a beautiful card!! The colors are so striking and vibrant!
Absolutely gorgeous Laura! I love your video’s, so down to earth, love all your fun comments. You have inspired me to do quicker, easier cards and not to fuss over them so much. Yours always look awesome but you don’t stress about every little thing! Love it!
Beautiful card, Laura!
I just love the layout!
Wow, I struggle with working out the copics that best go together, this chart would really help me out! Love the baby animals stamp set too!
Love your card, the flowers are beautifully colored! Looking forward to using this great tool!!!
Laura, I love this card, it is so bright and cheeeeerrrrry!! Loved the video and the Hex Chart which I have ordered, it will be a great help in coloring.
I love your flora card, so lovely. Wow ! Has this HexChart helped me see the possibilities I already had in my Copic Pallet, a real boost to your creativity
Gorgeous! No other word is necessary!
I love this card! I think the purple is my fav!
Love your flowers. Really enjoy your videos. My chart would be very sparse LOL. Thanks for sharing.
Are Copic markers all people sassy they are? Are they worth the money? I am a novice and don’t know where to start. You all make it look so easy. Please give me your opinion. I love your geometric configuration on all your cards.
