Happy Birthday!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Uncategorized

Hello, MarkerPOP friends!!! July is a busy birthday month in my family. Do you have a certain month of the year that has more birthdays than others? Another month for us is May.

Today, I am working with the Avery Elle’s Birthday Bus stamp set and Chameleon markers:

To start this card, I stamped the van image onto white cardstock. The line for the road is drawn in with a black tip pen. I decided to add the presents to the top of the car and balloons above the card. I also used the black tip pen to draw in the balloon strings. To finish the scene, I added a couple exhaust puffs to the van. The sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card in the center.

I used lots of Chameleon markers to color in the scene, I started with the balloons and worked my way down the card, saving the van for last. To finish the card, I added a some white gel marks to each of the balloon.

The following Chameleon markers were used on today’s card:
NU1, NU2, NU4, BR2, BR4, BR5, YO2, YO3, YL2, BG4, BL2, BL3, BL4, PR4, YG3, GR3, RD2, RD4, BK4, CB, OR4, PK3
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great one!

You’re One of a Kind

Hello, everyone… Holly here today with a Fun card featuring the new You’re Claw-some set from Lawn Fawn.

 I started by die cutting some Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Petite Rainbow 6×6 Papers using the Mama Elephant Basics Creative Cuts set. Then I die cut the Green piece with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die set. I adhered that to the blue piece to create a background.

I stamped all the images from the You’re Claw-some set onto some X-Press it Blending card stock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. Then I colored them in with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. I added some Red Wink of Stella to the Stars on the claw machine and some Clear Wink of Stella to the Unicorn image. I adhered the pattern pieces to a White card base and then I added the Claw machine with some foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment onto some additional X-Press It card stock and used the My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strips die-namics to cut it out and adhered it with some foam tape. I wanted to give the effect of glass so I used Sandy Allnock’s technique and added some White Gesso paint with a small dry brush over parts of the image.

I used the following Copic Markers: Claw Machine- YR12, YR16, C3, C1, C00, R24 & R29. Claw and all metal looking pieces – C3, C1 & C00. Bears: R24, R29, YR07, YR04Y15, Y19, V16, V17, YG03, YG25, B02, B05, R21 & R20 Unicorn: B00,B000, Y13 & Y11, Background inside Machine: BG000 & BG0000.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Monday everyone.. Holly here today with a reminder there’s time to join us for our July Summer of Fun Challenge. We have 2 challenges running all month long and for each project you enter you have a chance to Win our Summer of Fun Prize Pack.

I created a card using the Mama Elephant Floral Series ~ Poinsettias set and it’s coordinating dies. With some of the New Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Lucky Clover and Iced Spruce. The New Distress Oxide inks will be arriving in the MarkerPop store later this week so be sure to order yours now. I also used the Mama Elephant Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts and Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings Set.

I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using the Dotted die in the Pizazz Pieces creative cuts then I added some Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink. I added a few splatters of water to active the ink and then blotted off any excess. Once that was dry I adhered the panel to a A2 size Red card base. I stamped each of the Poinsettia images onto some watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Black ink and colored them in with the Candied Apple and Lucky Clover, Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber Oxide Inks. I added some splatters of water as well and dabbed off any excess.

I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the front of the card with some foam adhesive. Then I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in Gold. I added some Gold Wink of Stella to the center of the flowers and some Mixed Gold sequins for a little more sparkle.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Happy 4th of July everyone! It’s Holly here today and I hope you are enjoying your Holiday!! Today I have a Fun card featuring products from Ranger and Tim Holtz.

I got my fingers a little inky for this project. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper and I used the Rays Stencil first with some Candied Apple Distress ink. Then I added some Splatters using the Splatters Stencil in Blueprint Sketch ink. Once the panel was dried I added some water splatters and removed the excess water with a paper towel, then using the spritzer bottle I added some more water moving some of the color around. I heat set everything again and added some White Picket Fence Distress Paint with a paintbrush creating splatters.

Once the panel was dry I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink all around the edges and up into the center of the design keeping the outer edges Dark. Then I stamped the Happy 4th of July from the Crazy Birds sentiment set using some VersaFine Black ink. I adhered the panel to a A2 size card base.

The Bird (Crazy Birds), Flag and Hat (Crazy Things)were stamped onto some more Distress watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Ink in Black. I colored the images in with Distress Markers in the following colors: Tea Dyed, Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge, Abandoned Coral, Black Soot and Blueprint Sketch. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the center of the card with foam tape.

Have a Safe and Happy 4th!!!
