If you missed yesterday’s post, check it out now! We are hosting a video contest and you don’t want to miss it!
Hello! It is Lisa here, and today I’m here to talk about making your own Holiday cards. My best advice: DON’T OVER THINK IT! And yet almost every year I do just that, and then I end up pulling my hair out over it lol. But I wanted to remind myself that handmade Holiday cards really don’t have to be all of that and a bag of chips. It’s the thought that counts, the well wishes, and sharing a part of yourself and your talent with others. With that said, I have three easy to re-create cards, all created with one set of dies and one stamp set…
The set I have used here is by Penny Black called Merry Delight (Mini). The three images and sentiment in this set all work perfectly together. After coloring my images in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers and Aqua Markers, I added some clear Nuvo Glitter Drops, and framed it in with the My Favorite Things STAX Single Stitch Line Square Frames.
It’s that easy! Stamp, color, add a little detail with a frame and sequins and viola! Then you can just mass produce them or switch sentiments around, whatever you like!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget about our giveaway going on right now! Best of Luck!
And as always Happy Crafting!

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Halloween is next month. Are your kids getting excited? I have one that has his costume all planned out and two that will wait to the last minute!
Have you heard of Elizabeth Craft Designs stamp company? They are one of the newest brands now available in the MarkerPOP store.
Today, I am using their Halloween stamp set on my card:
I stamped a few of the designs onto watercolor cardstock and colored in using ZIG Clean Color markers. Once the images were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the image. The next step is to create an A2 card out of watercolor cardstock. On the front of the card, I stamped the gravestone image. I used the ZIGs again to color in the image. I extended the grass on both sides of the image. The sentiment is stamped below the grass. I wanted to include a moon and some stars. The moon is colored in by hand. The stars are from a cluster stamp from the My Favorite Things Somebunny I Love stamp set. The die cut images are attached using foam tape.
I used the following ZIG Clean Color markers on today’s project:
022, 024, 070, 052, 046, 047, 035, 094, 010, 095
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hello, hello! It is Lisa back here with you on this beautiful Wednesday! Last week I shared a Magic Slider card and this week I decided to go interactive again with a new to me Art Impressions Set Called: Toad Wiggle Wobble. The best thing about this set is that it comes with everything you need to make at least your first full moving frog! After that you just have to pick up a few more brads and wobbles to keep her moving… or use product you might already have on hand! Here is how my first cutie turned out…
Isn’t she just the cutest?! And she was so fun to make! After I stamped her body, two arms, two legs, and two thighs I began coloring her in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in LG2, LG3, LG4, PP1, PP3, and PP5. When using the Illustrator Markers I start by coloring with the lightest color and adding it all over the image. Next, I add the darkest color I want to use in the shadow areas. I then go back over the darker area with my middle color, and lastly I go over most of it again with the lightest color.
Once everything was colored I used the matching dies to cut everything out. Just add a few mini brads and she is ready to leap onto her stage.
