Warm Wishes

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP! Are you ready for cooler weather? I know I am! We experienced our first fall cool front today! The highs were in the 70s. I will take it! I am so ready to bring out the sweaters and the cocoa mugs!

Today, I created a CAS card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Candyland stamp set and ZIG Clean Color:

I love the look Versamark ink leaves on kraft cardstock. I love to used it to create my own background on cards! I took a few of the stamps from the stamp set and randomly placed them over the card. I stamped an extra gingerbread man onto another piece of cardstock. This image is colored in using ZIG Clean Color markers. The image is cut out using the coordinating dies for the Candyland stamp set.  The sentiment is stamped onto a strip of cardstock and attached to the card.

The following ZIGs were used on today’s card:

Happy Thanksgiving

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Can you believe that it is October already? Before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving! Do you have the Thanksgiving dinner at your house or do you go visit somewhere else? I usually go to my in-laws, but I always bring along a few side dishes.

Today I am working with the Hero Arts Thanksgiving Table and ZIG Clean Color Markers:

This stamp set includes several little images. I decided to use them to create a background print. I used the MISTI to help with the placement of the stamps. To fill in some of the empty space, I stamped green leaves. I used a variety of ZIGs to color in the images. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of cardstock and attached to the card.

The following ZIGs were used on this card:

024, 035, 040, 047, 064, 065, 067, 070, 072, 091, 092, 095

Sending Birthday Wishes

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! It is football season! I am not sure about where you live, but on the weekends here, the skies are full of planes with advertisement banners.

So with that in mind, here is my card using the Waffle Flower’s Across the Miles and ZIG Clean Color markers:

The airplane and banner are stamped in black ink. Once the ink dried, I used ZIG Clean Color markers to color in the scene. I added blue sky around the images. To add some design to the top of the panel,  I stamped a hot air balloon and added some die cuts of clouds.  The panel is cut out using a fancy rectangle die and attached to kraft cardstock.

Hey, Sugar!

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! As Halloween/Fall décor is starting to fill the stores, I have noticed a growing trend with Sugar Skulls. The Day of the Dead décor is seen everywhere! And I don’t know about you, but I love the bright, bold colors the décor includes. So when I saw the Sugar Skulls stamp set from Hero Arts, I knew that I needed to get my hands on it!!

So today, I am sharing my first card (I have so many ideas for this set, that I know there will be more!), using the Hero Arts Sugar Skulls stamp set and ZIG Clean Color markers:

The first step I took making this card, was stamping the skulls down the edge of watercolor cardstock. I used the masking technique while stamping the skulls. I used a dark gray ZIG around edges of the skulls and spread the color using water. I really enjoyed how this made the white of the cardstock pop where the skulls were stamped.

Now it was time to color in the faces. The stamp set includes a few different layered stamps with designs. I used the layered stamps on the faces and colored in using bright and bold ZIG colors. (I did not use water on these colors.) I wanted to add a few splashes of paint on the card, so I placed a strip of paper to cover the skulls and splattered a few spots around the card. To finish the card, the sentiment is stamped in black ink.

The following ZIGs were used on today’s card:
