Hello little birdie….

Written by Tracy Valure. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hey there! Tracy here today with a card I created using My Secret Place by Gorguss Stamps.  I’m always a little leery when I color Black Hair, for me it’s the hardest of the colors to color.  For her hair I used the copic W’s. I wanted more of a warmer black. With any of my coloring I tend to go light then layer on the darker colors. My thought process is you can’t take it away very easily so it’s better to go light and slowly add in the dark.

 The paper is Serenade from Bo Bunny and I used some black vintage seam binding.

Copic Colors:

Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: W4, W6, W8, W9, 100
Green: YG11, YG13, YG17
Red: R22, R24, R29
Wall: W2, W4

Thank you for stopping by today.

3D Thursday with an adorable penguin!

Written by Melisssa Forquer. Posted in 3D, Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi ya everyone!  Melissa here today to share an adorable Cocoa holder I made for little Christmas gifts.  I used the tutorial at Splitcoaststamper to create the box but made a few modifications to add my paper and embellishments.

I know so many who love candy canes with their hot cocoa at Christmas so I thought the pair would be great in a little treat box.  I also used this adorable Penguin with Candy Cane stamp from Tina Wenke at Stampavie.  This sweetie was colored in Copic makers after being stamped on Xpress It paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The sentiment is from the Some Odd Girl stamp set called Deck the Halls Tobie.

Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget there is still time to join our blog hop with Tina Wenke!

Warm Wishes Penguin

Written by Kelli Cortes. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi, everyone!  It’s Kelli and today I have a little penguin card to share with you!  He’s from the Some Odd Girl – Warm Wishes Tia stamp set.  I stamped him in Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with Copics:
C7, C5, C3
G28, G07, G05, G03, G02
R29, R27, R24, R22
YR18, YR16, YR15
E19, E50

For the lighter green strip I sprayed a piece of white card stock with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist and then heat embossed the snowflakes from the same Some Odd Girl stamp set in white.  The small red strip and scalloped border is from the Bo Bunny – Mistletoe 6×6 Paper Pad.  I wanted to add a little more interest to the card and I also needed a place to anchor the sentiment so I added some Divine Baker’s Twine in Cherry.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and is heat embossed in white.

To finish everything off I added some Spica Glitter Pen in Clear to the green parts of the image.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!  🙂

Cute Little Elephants!

Written by Samantha Peyton. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi everyone! Samantha here! Happy day after Thanksgiving for our USA readers! I hope that your holiday was delightful. Here at MarkerPop we are ready to get back to crafting so I’ve got a Christmas project for you today.

 

My card today features this adorable image from Wild Rose Studio called Starry Night Bella.

I decided rather than coloring up the sky part of the image, I would just cut around the image & use a snowflake patterned paper for that part.

I used the following Copic colors for this one:

  • For the snow: BG0000
  • For the elephants: B91, B93, B95
  • For the ears & nails: C0, C1
  • For the red hat: R22, R24, R27, R29
  • For the green hat: G03, G05, G09

 

Expert Tip: Bling it Up!

Add some flair to your Copic coloring with BLING! Glitter, Rhinestones, Enamel Dots, Pearls, Brads, Crystals, whatever you want. These items add a cute little decorative accent to what would be a very flat piece on your card.  I blinged up the little Santa hats with some glitter glue.

 

I created the “rope” lines for the banners using the #20 Chocolate Spica Glitter Pen.

 

That’s all I’ve got for you today! What are your crafty plans for this weekend?  Let us know in the comments section below! We would love to hear about it.
