Hex Chart Video Bloghop

HexChartHopSQHello! 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.SSS-Artful FlowersI’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.
SSS-Artful FlowersSandy’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.
SSS-Artful FlowersHere’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.

Here is the blog hop order:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. 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.

  5. You crack me up, too, Laura! Thanks, too, for showing how to use the chart to find colors that will blend well.

  7. I love your flowers Laura! Great coloring, as usual! Thanks so much for sharing and thanks to Sandy for her work on the chart. I can’t wait to color mine in!

  8. Gorgeous card, Laura! I love how you framed out the sentiment with all those beautiful flowers! So glad you were part of the hop!

  9. Beautiful artsy card!!!! Rethinking to splurge on the Artful Flower stamp by SSS 🙂 You have used it several times and what a great all occasion stamp! What a fantastic Copic chart! So much effort will help so many!

  10. 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.

  11. Beautifully colored card! Masking was one of my very first favorite techniques. I just bought the hex chart, and can’t wait to have all the blending capabilities of all the colors someday!

  12. Gorgeous card, Laura! I love how you put different colors together. Your cards are always so vibrant and make me happy just to see them.

  13. What a pretty pretty card. I too don’t have many copics – just a few. Would LOVE to have the entire line as I love to color – but it just hasn’t fit into my budget. Lucky are you all who have so many.

  14. Your copic coloring is always superb, Card-making Queen Laura! Love the masking and vibrancy of these colors!

  15. Yet again another great card! Love it 🙂 and as always a funny voice over hehehe Thanks for a lovely card and a laugh x ps.I’m sure my collection is even poorly-er-er so don’t worry 😉

  16. Striking colors-beautiful flowers. Thanks for mentioning the full sticky post-it notes for masking. Did not know they had this type of post-its.

  17. You make coloring with Copics look easy and more effortless than many others do. I appreciate that. Very pretty flowers.

  18. Beautiful colors on those flowers. Thanks for showing the colors. That is so helpful. Love the hex chart. Weren’t you lucky to have a hand colored one mailed to you? Woo hoo. I’m hoping I will, too. Thanks for the video tutorial.

  19. This is such a fun hop, watching everyone making beautiful colorful cards, just great! I think Sandy’s Hex Chart would be very helpful to me. Thanks.

  20. Beautifully colored! My chart may look like yours when I get it colored in. The problem is that there are too many toys to choose from. Ü

  21. 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! 🙂

  22. 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!

  23. Your flowers are so vibrant and the card really is great! I can tell the Hex Chart will be helpful with all Copic coloring.

  24. What a beautiful, colorful card. I love the simplicity but the design and colors make it so special. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

  25. “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.

  26. 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!

  27. 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!

    I too would really use a hex chart.

  30. Loved your card, looks like a lei. Sandy’s Hex Chart is awesome and how nice you got a hand colored one from her.

  31. Love the simple design and bright colors of your card. Can’t wait to get started on my own hex chart.

  32. 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.

  33. Your card is so bright and cheery (as are you). The color choices are perfect. You made the masking seem so effortless!.

  34. Love the card! I recognized your voice – now I can follow your blog. Yay!! So happy, cuz your stories make me laugh!

  35. beautiful! I was thinking I didn’t need this chart but after watching these videos, I’ll be heading over to Sandy’s blog and getting myself one!

  36. 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.

  37. 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!

  39. 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.

  40. 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

  41. 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.
