Thanks for joining me for my week as the Growing in Unity stamper! This is my third year as a GIU stamper if you want to see my other projects, click here.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment to be entered in the drawing for 25 random stamps & come back each day this week for a different creation from me!


I do quite a bit of Copic coloring!  Something I didn’t know existed a few years ago.  I have taken many lessons and am branching out into drawing.  I wanted to have something to hold the markers while I was coloring.  I came across this wood holder at an extreme discount and thought it would be perfect.

I stamped the sides with my favorite Unity stamp and embossing with Aged-Ivory.  Then I used a spray to create the background color.  Finally, I used Clean Color markers for the dark purple.

I thought the wood was too rough for the Copic nibs.

Anyway, this works perfectly!  I have a gorgeous holder to use and admire while I color.



  1. Base: Wood.  This was something from my stash; I forget where it came from!
  2. Background: Glimmer Mist – Cranberry Zing, Clean Color – purple
  3. Flower:  Unity Stamp – Tangle Flower, embossing powder – Aged Ivory, Clean Color – purple

  1. this is so cool! I have a wooden tote for my markers. Wish I could show you. I am curious why you have washi tape around your markers? I noticed there are different designs of washi tape.

    • If there is one washi tape it is just to indicate that it is mine. The second indicates that I have a refill. These help so much!

  2. What a clever idea! I love anything that gets art onto my walls and tables and this would get lots of use. I had that stamp in my cart while it was on sale and I took it out. DARN IT! Thanks for sale wonderful idea.

  3. I should try something like this to store my copics . Thanks for the lovely idea.

  4. This is a very cool holder and I love the way you used the stamp to decorate it. Which stamp did you use for it? thanks for sharing different ways to use art materials!

  5. Such a cute way to dress up a plain item. I never think of stamping large items like this. Inspiration!

  6. Awesome way to beautify some handy storage for copics and other art supplies. Love it!

  7. Cool box! I’ve seen a couple samples of projects posted on wood recently. Maybe it’s a sign I need to try it out.

  8. I love seeing projects other than cards too. This is very inspiring, great job.

  9. I never would have thought to stamp and emboss on wood. Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration

  10. Fun idea!! I love projects that allow me to display art in additional ways besides just making things to hang on walls.
