Hello and happy Thursday everyone. Nicki here today, and before I start with the fun stuff, I wanted to let you know that this will be my last post as a design team member for MarkerPOP. Having a young family, things are becoming very busy for me, and my creativity has been hard to come by lately! I am really disappointed that I’ve had to come to this difficult decision to step down from the team, but I just know it’s the right thing I need to do! Thank you for your lovely comments and encouragement during the last few months of my time here! I have loved being a part of the team!! XOXOX
Ok on to the crafty stuff! Today’s card features stamps & dies from My Favorite Things, and a Tim Holtz stencil. First, I started by die cutting an orange piece of card stock from the MFT Blueprints 29 die set. Then, using MFT’s Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX, I die cut the dark grey card stock. To give the background behind the pumpkins a little more interest and texture, I ink blended some Black Soot Distress Ink over Tim Holtz’s Mini Layered Stencil #22 (the leaves stencil). It’s pretty subtle, but I LOVE the effect 😉
For the black and orange pumpkins, first I repeatedly stamped the star stamp from the Spooky Sweets set with VersaMark ink on black and orange card stock. It was then embossed with WOW! Gold Rich embossing powder–a NEW brand/product in the store! Make sure to check them out…there are a TON of colors to choose from! Then I ran them through my die cut machine using the smallest pumpkin in the Spooky Sweets die set.
The white pumpkin was also stamped with VersaMark ink onto Neenah white card stock, then heat embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. The stem was embossed with the Gold Rich EP, then die cut. The sentiment is stamped on Neenah white card stock using the same gold EP, and then die cut using a banner die from MFT Blueprints 29. The white pumpkin and sentiment are popped up using some foam tape for dimension.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my fall/Halloween card today! I appreciate you stopping by. Have a great day.
I was super excited to get my hands on one of the newest stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, Cheery Christmas. As soon as it arrived in the house, I had to rip it open and get started on a card!
I love making scene cards with cutesy stamps! Lawn Fawn stamps are perfect! I stamped the deer images onto white cardstock and colored them in with a variety of Chameleon markers. The images are cut out and set aside. I used two stitched rectangle dies to create the black frame and the smaller rectangle and a Pink & Main Scalloped Waves die to create the snowy ground of the scene. The deer are attached to the scene. I used two stamps to create the mistletoes hanging down. I decided it needed to have a bow and used a stamp from a different stamp set. The sentiment is created on a banner and the rest at the bottom of the card.
I used Chameleon Markers – BR2, BR4, BR5, NU0, NU3, NU4, BK4 on the deer.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a great day!
I wasn’t quite satisfied with the way my card for last week turned out, so I decided to give it another go, this time a little more clean and simple.
I simplified my bunny’s band colors, using my ZIG’s and sticking to grey (Light Grey and Dark Gray), blue (Persian Blue and water), a bit of Pale Pink for the cheeks and ear, and then a dot of Yellow for button.
Finally, I stamped the little music notes, and heat embossed the sentiment using Hero Arts Detail Black embossing powder.
What do you think of version two? 😉
Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
I’ve created two cards with this set using the same layout but different colors and images. In the video below I create this Yellow and Pink version. I created a Blue version as well and I colored the images with Copics to show how versatile a layout can be. Just change up an image or two or the Color Palette and you have a different card. I started by Stamping the Transparent Triangles Background stamp from My Favorite Things onto a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor card stock and heat embossed the image in White.
Then I added Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry & with a Large Paintbrush. I flicked some water onto the background and lifted the color with water for a more distressed look. Then I adhered the panel to a Yellow A2 size card base. I die cut the frame from the Blueprints 27 from My Favorite Things using a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered the frame with some Foam Tape. Then I stamped the images onto another piece of the same watercolor card stock using VersaFine Black Onyx ink. Then I watercolor the images using Distress Markers and a paintbrush.
I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and the Big Shot and set them aside. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Solar White and cut it out using the Banner from the Blueprints 27 set. I adhered the banner and all the images with some Foam tape and Liquid glue. For an additional pop of Shimmer I added some Pretty Pink Posh Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins. I created the second card below in the same way just changing up the images and I colored the images in with Copics.
I used the following Distress Makers for the images: Hickory Smoke, Pumice Stone, Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs & Antique Linen.
Check out the video below for more details on how I created this card.
