With Sympathy

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

{Happy Thursday, Crafters! Valerie here, and I know you’ll all know what I’m talking about here… Life has been utterly crazy for me! With surgery (and the recovery from it), starting a new full-time job while still working the old part-time job, my son’s Prom, AND a death in the family, things have been quite crazy for me. SO, with that said, I apologize for not having a post done for today! HOWEVER, I had this one ready to go on my blog for another day, so I decided to pull it over here to the MarkerPop blog, instead, because I think we can all understand my situation, right?!}

I had to make 2 completely different cards yesterday; one for my friends who are Expecting (YAY!!), and one for my Aunt & Uncle who unexpectedly lost their daughter, my cousin; talk about complete opposites. And actually, you could say that the card making was actually a therapy for me, as I’m grieving my wonderful cousin that we have lost way too soon.

Let’s start with the happy card! For this one, I pulled out a sweet old Lawn Fawn set, Plus One, and it’s coordinating die set. All the other dies used for this card are also Lawn Fawn; you can see them in the supply list at the end. I colored the image with Copic Sketch markers. The sequins are Pretty Pink Posh cupped sequins: Cornflower 4mm & Pink Blush 6mm.

For my condolences card, I pulled out a favorite Altenew set of mine, Extra Special. It stamps beautifully, and the image is just so pretty. I stamped the purples with the inks from Altenew’s Shades of Purple ink set. The greens are from Altenew’s Tropical Forest ink set.

Thanks for stopping by, and hug your loved one real tight <3





Piñata Kind of Day…

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here and today I have a cute CAS card to share with you that is sure to brighten anyones day.  When I first saw the Piñata Squidgy Set by Stampingbella I just adored the little girls face.  As I looked at the set more, I fell in love with the sentiment too!

Isn’t she the cutest?!  To create my card I started by stamping the girl and piñata images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.  I LOVE this cardstock… the thickness is amazing, and your Spectrum Noir Markers blend beautifully on it!  Any who, I colored these images in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.  I have to brag a little about these markers too as I really like the thin nib on one end that allows you to get into tiny areas easily (and they are on sale, and I mean big time sale!).  Once they were completely colored I fussy cut them out and set them to the side.  Next, I worked on my frame by diecutting some yellow and blue watercolored patterned paper by Lawn Fawn with the My Favorite Things Stax Stitched Mini Scallop Oval.  I then stamped the piñata image again, but onto the blue patterned paper and without coloring it in.  I used Tombow Mono Glue to adhere my colored and cut images onto my card front, and I finished the card off my stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are able to join us in our newest challenge, and don’t forget to check out the awesome giveaway that is happening now!

Happy Crafting!

You’re Going Places!

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

Hello everyone.. It’s Holly here today. I hope your week is starting off great! Today I have a fun slider card featuring the Adorable Up in the Air set from My Favorite Things and the coordinating dies.

I started by creating a White A2 size card base and then I created a cloud background using the MFT Stitched Cloud Edges to create a stencil and some Salty Ocean Distress Ink. Then I created another cloud background on a piece of White card stock that I die cut with the MFT Blueprints 29. Then I created a scene with some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics set. Then I die cut a channel into the panel using the MFT Slider Channel Die set.

I stamped all the images using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto some X-Press It Blending card stock and colored the images in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating Dies to cut them out. I adhered some of the images directly onto the scene. I created a slider for the Larger Balloon with the Channel die and the small circles from the MFT Surf & Turf Die set and three of the MFT Spin & Slide Discs.  You can find many videos on YouTube on how to use these discs. Once I had the slider all set up I attached the panel to the front of the card with some foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a strip of White card stock and used one of the banners from the MFT Blueprints 27 using VersaFine Black ink. I adhered t with some additional foam tape as well.

I used the following Copics to color the images:

Puppy: E70, E74 Baskets: E23, E25 Banner: BV13, BV17 Balloons: R24, R29, YR12, YR07, Y13, Y18, YG03, YG25, B24, B28. Tree: YG25, G07 House: E43, E44, E23, BG01, C2

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
