Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I know that most of the US is experience some winter weather, but down here along the Texas Gulf Coast, we are having Spring weather. The highs the last few days have been 80 degrees! So the bugs and little critters are coming out because they as confused as we are as to what season it actually is!
Did you see that the newest Sunny Studios release arrived in the MarkerPOP store today? Stop over to the Sunny Studios section of the store to see the products. I brought out one of the older Sunny Studios stamp sets, Backyard Bugs, for today’s card.
I stamped the images onto white cardstock and colored in with variety of Chameleon markers. The image are cut out and set aside. I used Pink & Main’s Scalloped Waves to create the hilly background. The colored images are added to the scene. The house and snail are simply attach to the card.
For the butterfly, I only put tape down the center of the back. I attached the butterfly to the card and bent the winged up for some dimension to the card. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock. The sentiment is tucked underneath the edge of the butterfly.
The following Chameleon markers were used on this card: RD4, YL2, BL3, BL6, BV4, BK4, NU0, NU1, NU3
Thank you for stopping by today!
Hello! It is Lisa here today and I’m popping in today to share some super cute bookmarks I was able to whip up using BB Our Story Stamp set from My Favorite Things…
To create these bookmarks I started out diecutting the banners from Neenah Solar White Card stock with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo Die Set. I then lined my images and sentiments up using my MISTI tool and stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink. I colored the images in next using Copic Markers as listed below.
Girl Bookmark: E25, E27, E59 – hair, E50, E00 – skin, G21, G46, YG63 – chair, RV91, RV95 – dress, RV23, RV25 – Book, C1, C3 – shoes
Boy Bookmark: E00, E21, E50 – skin, E25, E33, E27 – hair, R29, R89 – book, B95, B97 pants C1, C3, C5 – shoes, YG06, YG17, G14 – shirt
I didn’t want anything too complex in the background so I used my new Clarity Stencil Brushes, paper masks, and Distress Inks. I love how smoothly the background went on, and how easy it was to clean the brushes with water!
Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to enter our latest challenge!
Happy Monday everyone it’s Holly here today with a card featuring Winnie & Walter. I don’t know about you but I have a habit of buying everything and then never getting around to using it. So this year I’ve decided to pull out those unused stamps in my stash and create.. Plus it’s fun to mix up old stuff you forgot you had with some new stuff.
Today I’m using the Winnie & Walter Kindness Set. This set had a great collection of sentiments and a mix of Trees. I stamped the images onto a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor card stock using VersaFine Onyx ink. Then I colored the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in #47 May Green, #44 Deep Green, #25 Pink & #64 Oatmeal. After applying the color I moved it around a little with a slightly damp paintbrush for a watercolor look. I stamped the sentiment onto the panel and trimmed it down to fit a Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card base.
I die cut the word Kindness from the My Favorite Things Kind & Kindness Die-namics set using some Pink card stock. I adhered the sentient over the front of the card using some liquid glue. There’s no dimension I just kept it flat. For a touch of Sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Mixed Sequins in Sparkling Clear. I really like the mix of the MFT die with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter.
Both the stamp set and the Die were new in my stash..lol I have a lot of stuff to get out and use. Stay tuned as I mix up a little old with some new! How do you make sure you use your new products? Or are you like me and tend to stash it all for later use?
Have a great day..Thank for stopping by!
