SPCC #10

Are you ready for another color combo?? It is hard to believe we are already on the 10th color combo challenge - double digits already!! To celebrate our 10th challenge, we have a rockin' sponsor this week! This week's color combo is one of my faves so far. I am actually NOT a fan of orange normally, but when it is with pink or purple, I like it :O) I guess I am weird like that, LOL.

Anyway, I hope you will play along this week because yet again we have a GREAT sponsor!! I can't wait to see what you make this week! To find out the details of our SP Diva's projects, click on their names in Mr. Linky. Their names will have SP Diva beside them so you know they are a diva!!

Use this color combo for your project -be it a card, scrapbook LO, 3D or altered item. You do NOT have to use Stampin' UP brand colors, but you do have to use colors close to these colors.

Entries are due on Sunday, August 16th. Next Monday, I will showcase the winner and the SP Top Five. The winners for last week are already posted.

Our amazing sponsor this week is. . . .!!!! as the name suggests is a Copic retailer! They sell all the Copic varieties and accessories for your coloring needs! has awesome prices, great customer service, and an awesome selection. If you need Copic markers, is the place to go.

Kevin and Ashley over at have graciously donated prizes for the next FOUR WEEKS!!! Not only that, they donated Copics for our lovely SP Divas and myself as well!!! Unbelievable, right??? Thank you so much, Kevin and Ashley!! I will be honest, until became our lovely sponsor, I had not so much as even TOUCHED a Copic marker and now I have a little set of my own! These markers are amazing! If you have never tried them out, you need to!! I am going to be purchasing more soon :O)

iCopic has donated this lovely prize for one lucky winner this week:

The winner this week will receive:
  • Copic Sketch - Set of 12 Color Markers (12 Ex-4) -this set retails for nearly $80 but you can save at
This marker set is a BRAND NEW RELEASE!!! Up until this week, these were a pre-order item. iCopic just got these Copics in so be sure to check them out. Our lucky winner this week will be one of the first to get their hands on these new markers!

Here are the projects the divas came up with. Some of the divas used Copics on their creations this week!

Susan Z *Guest Diva*

Kelly Marie

Kelly Marie used Copic markers to color in her stamped image on her card this week. The colors just look so vibrant. It is hard to believe she used markers! These things are truly amazing.



Kristina used Copic markers to color in the butterfly. WOW!






Stephanie used Copic markers to color in the pumpkin! Look at that shading!


Me (Samantha)

This card was made using Copics and SU markers and a sneak peek stamp set from the upcoming Stampin' UP Holiday Mini catalog. All month long I am posting Sneak Peeks from the upcoming SU Holiday Mini on my personal blog Scrapmaster's Paradise.

Hi Sam... if there's still time, I'm going to go squeeze out a card. I love seeing your challenges on Kelly Marie's site... LOL. By the way, my 5 yr old DD just made me scroll back to your card.. She LOVES it! :-) She said, "Oooh yeah! That's the one! It's soooo pretty...." lol. :-)

Julie Ranae said...
