Sorry, Friend

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope you are enjoying the beautiful day! This card seems fitting for today, because well…I am running behind. So better late than never right!?

I recently saw a video about using Zig Markers and creating a stain glass window look. I figured I would give it a try for today’s card.

I am using the Waffle Flower’s Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set to create the card below.

Starting with a piece of vellum, I stamped the image with embossing ink and covered the image with white embossing powder. I used a heat gun to melt the entire image. Once the embossing was cool, I flipped the vellum over and used a variety of ZIG Markers to color in the image. Because you are coloring on the backside, you can be forgiven for coloring outside of the lines.

When the coloring was completed, the vellum is trimmed down to size to fit on the front panel of the card. The sentiment is created using a couple different supplies. The ‘SORRY’ is created using a word die and black cardstock/ The ‘FRIEND’ is stamped and embossed in black onto the vellum.

I loved the stain glass technique and cannot wait to give it another try!

The following ZIG Clean Color markers were used on today’s card: 021, 022, 047, 400, 052, 070

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Llama Tell You

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Llamas are pretty popular right now! I have seen them on stamps, papers, clothes, mugs…you name it! Everywhere you turn, there are llamas! I just chuckled as I wrote that… a few weeks ago, my daughter’s field trip was at a local wildlife zoo. You know, the kind you drive your car through and the animals are roaming free. While I was leaving the zoo, I turned the corner and the road was being blocked by a number of llamas. They would not budge, so I had to sit there surround by llamas.  Anyway, that is my llama story, guess I should move on to my card 🙂

Today’s card uses the super cute Gerda Steiner Designs Llama Tell You and Echo Park’s Summer Dreams papers:

The stamped images are on white cardstock and called in with Chameleon markers. The images are then cut out using the coordinating dies. I used other dies to create the panel for the scene. I used a paper pad to make it super easy to coordinate the papers.

The scene is pieced together. The panel is then attached to another coordinating print. The sentiment is stamped onto a thin strip of paper and attached towards the bottom of the card. To finish the card, I added a few NUVO drops to fill in the empty space next to the sentiment.

The following Chameleon Markers were used on today’s card: NU00, NU1, BR5, YG3, GR1

You Are Out of This World

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! This is the last day for Teacher Appreciation Week for our local schools. So I have been working on a few cards to hand out to our teachers. I found it challenge it make a card for my son to give to his teacher. I wanted the card to share some of his personality.

This month, the design team will be using a variety of different alcohol markers. One of my favorite marker brand is Chameleon Markers. I love how easy these markers are to use. The blending comes so easy with these markers.

Today, I am working with the Lawn Fawn’s Out of This World and a bunch of Chameleon markers.

I wanted to create a scene in the center of the cut out of the card. To start the card, I stamped the planet images and colored them with the alcohol markers. The spaceman image is also stamped onto white cardstock, colored in, and cut out. I used a few different grays to color in the background of the scene.

To add some additional elements to the card, I added glossy accents to the spaceman’s mask. I added “stars” to the scene, by adding enamel drops. The sentiment is stamped and embossed ink white on black cardstock. The cardstock is then cut out in a strip and attached to the card.

The following Chameleon markers were used to color in this card: RD2, RD4, VO2, VO4, OR3, OR4, YO2, YO3, CG5, CG8, BR2, PR4, BG4, BL3, BL6, BG4, PK3, NU1, NU2

Watercolor Background with Altenew

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I love to work with bright colors, but I am switching it up today! Throughout the month, the design team is showcasing different watercolor products and techniques on the MarkerPOP blog!

Today, I am creating a watercolor background print. I am using the Altenew’s You Make Me Happy stamp set (currently out of stock, but check out the other Altenew floral stamp sets HERE) and ZIG Clean Color markers.

To start this card, I stamped the images with white ink and embossing powder. The embossing powder creates the raised edges to help keep the paint in the right place. I used soft colors to fill in the image. The stems are colored in using ZIG Clean Color – May Green (047 ). The center of the flower is colored in with Light Carmine (021). Light Pink (026) was used on the inside of the flower petals. To fill in the background, Light Blue (036) was used.  To finish the card, the simple sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
