Video: Guest Artist Sandy Allnock… Featuring Copic Markers + GIVEAWAY

Hi! While on a long vacation, I decided to ask my incredibly talented friend – Sandy Allnock – to create a video for me to share. In the video, I explain more. Sandy is a gem (more on her below) and I am honored to have her here. I hope you will all welcome her with open arms.


Hello! I’m Sandy Allnock, aka friend-of-Jennifer, too… and I have a little bit of fun to share with you while Jennifer’s away on vacation. I’m so excited she invited me to visit!

I created a super short video showing how to create a Copic airbrushed background, apply texture using a stencil, and then stamp sweet “hello sunshine” images – perfect for a summery card!

[Click HERE to watch on YouTube in HD.]

I layered my airbrushed panel on white, then added it to a black card base with dimensional adhesive. Voilรก, a cheerful, elegant card!

And in case you missed the link to my Copic Airbrush Buying Guide video, click HERE. Leave any questions in the comment section and I’ll pop in to answer them! Hope Jennifer’s off having a lovely time!


It’s Jennifer again. I have a few more things to share, but first wanted to link to a Copic Airbrush video I did awhile ago HERE.


Of all the people I have met through cardmaking, Sandy is one that I admire most. She is unbelievably amazing with Copics and I find her videos mesmerizing. (HERE and HERE are video proof.) She also has the biggest heart, as proven by her being the creator and heart of Operation Write Home. She also has a great sense of humor (which you can see in her glitter video). To see more from Sandy, you can subscribe to her YouTube channel and follow her blog. I promise she will inspire you and lift your spirits all at once.


For a long time now, I have wanted to have guest artists with videos on my blog. Not just anyone… but artists who I find do very inspiring videos. I have several guests lined up for this summer, but then will cut back to one a month or so. I promise this will not take away from the content I try to offer, but rather will enhance it. I will also follow each guest video with one that I have created, inspired by theirs. I am hoping that by sharing these great artists, you may discover inspiring talent you had not seen yet. After all, it’s all about sharing.


Interested in winning the Hero Arts Leaf & Flourish stencil and Hello Sunshine stamp set that Sandy used above? For your chance, just leave a kind comment for Sandy here by 11:59pmEST on 7/14/14.


We have winners!ย Renee Person gets the Mini Distress Inks… the SSS Card Kit goes to Darlyne Wagner… and the $50 gift certificate and SSS paper is for Randellyn.

See you soon with a video inspired by Sandy!

  16. Aloha, Sandy!!! Fabulous video and air brushing card ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad to see you guest spot here on Jennifer’s blog. Hope we can see more of you <3 Take care!!!

  17. Just beautiful, Sandy! I’m amazed at how the blending solution mutes the air brushed background, it’s really gorgoes, that great texture it gives.

  18. Sandy! B.E.A.U.TIFUL copicing…copicying…ehhh its B.E.A.U.TIFUL work!! I am very happy Jennifer talked about you one day when I happened to be in the “curious about copics” mood so now I enjoy checking everyday to see if my line up of positive and creatively witty bunch I follow on youtube have a new video out… Jennifer, Kristina W., YOU…The Scrap Wrangler’ herself, Sandy Allnock (love those videos btw) , PPPosh, Darlene DeVries, and a few more that inspire teach me while changing to the paper medium (use to be leather). Soon hopefully I can get my…stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰ together and send cards your way for OWH (I like to do the funny/boarder line cards). You can tell a lot by ones character by what they do for other people without an agenda and profit and this group of ladies I like to say have real character and a certain kindness that I wish more people were blessed with. Thanks for all your hard work and creative genius…next step…buy copics (only which set to start with?). E.

  19. Great job and beautiful card, Sandy. I love the yellow sunshiney background with the black flowers.
