Combining Copic Class Backgrounds to Create Different Scenes
Hi there crafty friends! Today I have another card Combining Copic Class Backgrounds to Create Different Scenes using Rachelle Anne Miller Digi Stamps. Don’t you just LOVE them– I know I do! I have made a slim-line card which is 7 x 8.2 and scored at 3.5. My image cardstock size is about 1.8 off so I can get a nice border around my image with the card base.
I printed my Catching Butterflies digi stamp on my Copic Xpress it Blending Card. The Catching Butterflies digi stamp is also 50% off until the end of May!

I get a lot of questions regarding printing digis and what kind of printer. I use a laser jet HP but you don’t have to have a laser printer. But, I used to have an inkjet printer that I printed my digis out for years — and it worked just fine without the ink running onto my Copic nibs. Not all printers are alike so I always suggest to people — use your heat tool for a few seconds to set the ink if you are worried about the ink running or if you have had a problem with your ink running.
Here are the Copic Marker Colors I have used to color my Catching Butterflies Digi Stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller.
Combining Classes and making it your own!
I’ve gotten a few emails about some of my students asking how do you start creating your own backgrounds and really making the card, background and scene your own. I know if can be easier to just follow a step by step video class than really actually thinking outside the box. So, my suggestion to you is to combine scenes you have already practiced and maybe even from classes you have already taken.
The scene from this It’s your Birthday card using the Catching Butterflies image I’m actually combining the 3 backgrounds from my newest All Occasions Card-Making Online Copic Training Course. The sentiment is also part of the course which is a 12 different sentiments all occasions bundle.
From the Deer + Bunny card I’ve used the sky and sunray techniques.
The Animal Parade Card I’m using the tree technique.
From the Balloon Ride Card I’m using the grass and houses techniques.
The possibilities are seriously endless when you combine all of these different scenes and using different combinations of them can really give your cards all a very unique look. Another great way to make your classes go even further is to change up the Copic Marker color combos. I can easily re-create the card I made today and use all grey Copics for the grass and leaves to create a Winter wonderland and color the image in blue hues.
So, once you have finished a class a fantastic way to get even more out of it and to start “thinking outside the class” and change up the colors .. and combine different backgrounds!
