Copic Coloring Die Cuts featuring Spellbinders Poppies

Hey folks!

In today's video, I'm sharing how to color your die cuts using Copic Markers. Coloring die cuts is so easy and a tried and true trick to getting more mileage out of your dies. Today I'm using these lovely Poppies Dies that were sent to me from Spellbinders. 

While Spellbinder did send me these dies, I was under no obligation to use them nor am I being compensated for using them. I decided to share them with you, because I really enjoy them and I think they are a wonderful product. Now that being said, below is the usual about the other products I have used and those affiliate links.

 If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click HERE to read my full disclosure policy.



You can watch the video on how I made my cards HERE. You can also click on the thumbnail link below.

It's for good reason that dies are so popular. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and you can do some really cool things with them. If you've followed me for any length of time, you know that I usually stick to the basics with dies. However in my heart of hearts I'm always on the lookout for dies that I can color.

The Shapeabilities POPPIES Etched Dies are groovy for a couple of reasons. They die cut and emboss. They are designed so they can be layered. Plus you can totally color them! You could absolutely cut them out in colored cardstock and call them a day, but I love me some color. I think Simon Says Stamp SCHOOLHOUSE RED and Simon Says Stamp GREEN LEAF cardstocks would be fab!


You can see my Copic color choices in the VIDEO or find them in the thumbnail links below. I chose the traditional bold red of a poppy, but I would love to see these in white!

I also love red and blue green together so I ink blended some Neenah BRISTOL VELLUM paper with Tim Holtz PEACOCK FEATHERS Distress Oxide Ink. I splatter some of that on with water when the ink blending was done as well as some FADED JEANS Distress Oxide Ink and Wplus9 SHIMMER SPRAY.


A sentiment from the Hero Arts FOR YOU Stamp set and Wplu9 BLACK Ink were just the ticket.

I added some Nuvo GLITTER GLOSS to the centers of the poppies and a few Hero Arts CLEAR GEMS on one card and Pretty Pink Posh CLEAR SPARKLING SEQUINS on the other and called it a day. I talk more about this in the VIDEO.

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed my card today! DISCOVER more projects on my Youtube Channel. Do be sure to subscribe if you haven't and also tap that notification bell so you don't miss any future videos. As always Thanks So Much for stopping by!
