Hello, everyone! It is Jessi here today. I love making CAS (Clean and Simple) cards. They are super easy cards to create. Another thing I love… stamps that have coordinating dies! They also make card-making easy!
I started this card with a blank white 3.75in x 5in cardstock panel. The banner stamp is done at an angle to make it look like it was hanging off trees. The letters from the stamp set were stamped onto the pendants to spell PARTY. The banner image is colored in using a variety of blues and greens.
The animals are stamped onto white cardstock and cut out using the coordinating dies. The animals are colored in with markers. Before the animals are attached to the panel, I used the Pink & Main’s Scalloped Waves dies to create the green grass background and attached it at the bottom of the panel. The animals are attached using tape adhesive and a foam dot. The panel is attached to a Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangles diecut and is mounted onto the card front.
Markers Used on today’s project:
Chameleon – Vine (Spring Meadow-YG3 & Grass Green – GR3), Banner (Sky Blue-BL3 & Royal Blue -BL6), Hippo (Cool Gray -CG8 & Deep Black-BK4), and Lion (Seville Orange-OR4, Warm Sunset-YO3 & Summer Sun YL2)
Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a great day!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Well not in my house anyways, but in the MarkerPop store it is. There’s a lot of new arrivals of Holiday products from all your favorite brands. We are also welcoming Concord and 9th to the shop this month. For my project today I’m using Concord and 9th’s Sophisticated Script and the Shine Brighter stamp sets. These will be available on Aug. 31st but you can pre-order them now.
I stamped the images from the Shine Bright set onto some Watercolor Paper using VersaFine Onyx ink and my Misti Tool. Then I colored in each of the bulb images with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set. I used the colors: No. 35 Carmine Red, No.43 Mid Yellow, No.52 Ocean Green, No. 62. Cobalt Blue and No.20 Black. I used the Black on the tops of the lightbulbs just along the edge. I used a small amount and then faded it out with a damp clean brush. I was trying to make it look Silver. I have the Large 36 set and it includes No. 95 Silver I added a tiny bit of that over the top of the bulbs then dabbed it off with a paper towel to give it just a hint of shimmer. You could also achieve this with a Wink of Stella pen.
After the images were dry I added a few splatters of the same colors around each bulb. I die cut the panel with the My Favorite Things Blueprints #15. I lined the Sophisticated Script letters up in the Misti and stamped the word Merry. And then I used the Merry and Bright sentient from Shine Bright and covered the Merry portion and selective stamped and Bright. Once everything was dry I added some foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to a Black Licorice A2 size Card base. For a touch of Sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix Sequins. For a highlight on each bulb I added some lines with a White Gel Pen.
Be sure to head over to the store and check out the Concord and 9th Collection and grab your favs!! Thanks for stopping by today, I’ll be back next week with a new video!

Hello there! Clare here today, with a fun, sparkly encouragement card for this weeks challenge!
For today’s card, I started out by taking the adorable Mama Elephant Unicorns and Rainbows stamp set and heat embossing it with some glittery embossing powder. I then colored the unicorn in with my trusty ZIG’s, using Light Gray and Gray for the hair and hooves, Pale Pink for the wings, and Ochre for the horn. The reason the colors are so pale here is that I blended them out a lot with some water and a brush.
I then die cut my little horsey out, and laid it aside to create the starry setting.
For the starry scene, I first stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Let Love Grow in white on some navy cardstock, then the little diamonds from the Mama Elephant stamp set in pearl. I added some gems, and then adhered my unicorn.
To finish the card off, I embossed two strips of paper in the same glittery embossing powder at the unicorn, then adhere them to a card base, and topped that off with my stamped and embellished navy panel.
Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
