Fintastic Friends

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

Hi, everyone!  It’s Kelli and today I have a cute card to share with you that features the little seahorse from the Under the Sea Mae set by Some Odd Girl.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with Copics:
body- Y35, Y15, Y13, Y11
belly- BG13, BG11
head fin- BV02, BV01, BV00
The subtle waves on the card base and the sentiment are both from the same set.
The colorful banners behind the seahorse are a mixture of washi tape, fabric tape and patterned paper.  The thickest one is the Japanese Washi Masking Tape in Lace Dot Mint Green and the striped one is Cotton Fabric Tape in Striped Pale Green & Plum.  This stuff is so cool!  It’s got a great feel to it and it’s really easy to cut, I love it!  I backed the thick mint green tape with white paper so that it would be vibrant since the color shows through.
I finished off the card with a little Glossy Accents on the seahorse and some white gel pen stitch lines.
Thank so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!  🙂

 

Sea You Soon

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

Hi, everyone!  It’s Kelli and today I have a cute beachy card to share with you!  I used the adorable Magnolia – Edwin in Miami stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Copics:
skin- E13, E01, E00
hair- E27, E37, E35
shirt and shorts- B26, B24, B23, B21
shoes- E37, E35, C7, C5, C3
starfish- YR16, YR15, Y35, Y15
sand- E55, E53, E50
sky- BG18, BG13, BG11

The sentiment is from the Some Odd Girl – Under the Sea Mae.  I thought it coordinated perfectly!  All the patterned papers are from the Echo Park – This & That Charming 6×6 Pad.  I wanted to try something different so I stippled the sky and sand.  It was pretty fun because there’s no right or wrong way, you just go for it!  I used the darkest colors closest to the image and the went lighter towards the edges of the paper.
I finished the card off with some Glossy Accents on the starfish and an Orange Divine Twine bow.

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


My Little Guy Loves Pumpkin Pie!

Luka with Pumpkin

Hello everyone!   Marie here and I want to share a card I created for you today.  I know it is still summer, but I like to get a jump-start on Fall.   I love that time of year.   The smells  of cinnamon, hot spiced cider  and freshly baked pumpkin pie make me a happy woman!

I used the adorable stamp by La La Land Crafts Rubber Stamp called Luka with Pumpkin.  This stamp is a breeze to use.  It is a deep etched rubber stamp with a cushion back and it stamps with a beautiful, clean image.  It comes ready to use!  It measures approximately 4 in  x 3 in.  It  is a perfect size for card making, scrapbook pages and other crafts.

I used the following Copic alcohol ink markers on my image:
Skin Tone:  E000, E11
Pumpkin: YR18, YR16, YR15, YR12, YR00, R59
Pumpkin Stem:  W4, W1, W00
Pants and Shoes:  E40, E42, E44
Jacket, Hat and Socks: BG70, BG72, BG75
Hair: YR23, YR23, E35, Y23
Grass:  G24, G29

You will notice I used a very dark R59 very sparingly at the bottom of the pumpkin for my darkest shadow.
This is not the natural family group for YR but it works well if used in a small amount to add high contrast.
If you would prefer a moderate contrast, E35 could be used as a substitute.
I personally like high contrast and find that the eye is often drawn to such images.

You will also notice I created grass around Luka.  I always like to ground my images,
and creating grass is a fun way to accomplish that.

I created a little quilled pumpkin to coordinate with the theme of the image.

A frame was created my using a large oval die.
Framing the images is a fun twist!

I hope you enjoyed my Fall card with Luka holding a pumping that is MUCH too big for him.   Remember to stop by and join in  our MarkerPop Challenge this week.  There is still time to enter your creation into the contest.  The prize is GREAT!  Click here for this weeks challenge.       Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

 

Welcome Little One

Good morning everyone!  Tracy here on this glorious Friday with a card for you! It’s so nice to be back posting on the new MarkerPop blog! What do you think about all the changes? I know we are super excited over them!!

Today’s card is done using Bella with Balloons  from Wild Rose Studios.

I used Copic markers to do all my coloring. For the background I used a dotted or stippled technique of just randomly adding dots all around my image. I usually try to use 2-3 different colors when I do this. On this card I used B000, B00 and B60.

I tried to keep the balloons light in  color so the looked more translucent like a balloon appears.  The colors I used for the balloons were B00, B01, YG11, YG13, V000, V12, RV00, R81. I colored Bella using C00, C01, C03, R11. Tell me that is not the cutest elephant EVER!!!  I am super excited over this line from Wild Rose Studio. My favorite tear-jerker movie growing up was Dumbo and these little elephants remind me of that.  So adorable!

Thanks for joining us today.  Don’t forget we have our latest challenge happening right now, Hair/Fur, where you could win a number of FABULOUS prizes!  Some come play along with us!!!!
