  1. This card is so pretty! Love the technique using the chalk ink stamped image in the background. I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Great video except that music takes away from your instructions. Not all of us like music when we are trying to watch a stamping video.

  3. Great card and video! Thanks so much for sharing the “how-to” with us!

  4. Found you by way of the Hero Arts blog. What a beautiful card, and I really appreciate the tutorial. I am curious as to why you use Neenah instead of white cardstock, so I’ll give it a go to see how I like it. TFS.

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      @Beth – I used Stampin’ Up! white cardstock for the background colors. I used Neenah white cardstock for the copic coloring because the copic markers blend a lot better with this paper. They also don’t bleed as much with Neenah.

  5. Oh, I’m so glad I found your blog again! This is such a good video demonstrating another beautiful card!

    Oh, and your Zumba class looks like SO much fun! I’ve taken some classes before in the past, and I always had a good time. I sure wish I lived closer, so I could take one of your classes. My boyfriend’s mom actually lives in Dallas, so maybe the next time we visit I can check it out!
    Thanks for sharing both videos today!
