Happy Father’s Day with Avery Elle

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

Hi Crafters! I can’t believe mom’s and dad’s days are right around the corner! I have a pretty Father’s Day card today featuring Avery Elle‘s new Shine Bright stamp & die set, and their new Scalloped Pierced Rectangles STAX die set.

The images are stamped using Memento’s Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press IT Blending Card Paper, and colored with Copic markers (I use Sketch markers).

The red & white diagonally striped paper is from Doodlebug’s 6×6 Anchors Away paper pad.

The background is created using Distress Inks applied with onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock with Mini Ink Blending Tools.

For the beam of light, I  first stamped it with Altenew’s Warm Sunshine Ink from their Summer Afternoon ink pad set, available in full size ink pads or mini’s. Then I stamped it again with VersaMark Ink, and heat embossed it using Wow! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder

The sentiment was stamped using VersaMark, and heat embossed with Wow! White Pearl Embossing Powder. I added Zig Clear Wink of Stella to the flying birds and the red parts of the lighthouse. The final touch were the Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in Cobalt 4mm & 6mm.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope this has given you some inspiration! 

Love You To The Moon And Back…

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a sweet little card to share with you that I’ve created with the newest WPlus9 release set called Little Dreamers

The minute I saw this set I knew I just had to have it!  And if I was going to get this set then I was going to need the Stardust Stamp Set too.  After all look at how perfect the sweep of stars look along the top and bottom!

To create this card I started by stamping the bear first as he was going to sitting on the moon.  I then masked him off and stamped the moon.  I decided to use the emboss resist technique for my stars and sentiment. So after they were stamped and embossed in clear embossing powder I went over the background with a mix of Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet and Broken China) and Distress Inks (Faded Jeans and Black Soot).

I removed the masks and colored the moon and bear in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.

And all of this was done on Neenah Solar White Cardstock.  I love this cardstock in both the 80# weight and the 110#.  It is sturdy and smooth and hold alcohol markers very well.

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

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Inlaid Die Cutting: A Treat For Your Eyes!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I have a fun card that not only looks beautiful, but can really play tricks on your eyes, check it out…

With the use of a technique called Inlaid Die Cutting I was able to add my sentiment in the middle of my image, while keeping the entire image intact!  It’s so cool, and I love the results every time I do it.  The trick to this technique is making sure you keep all of the little pieces that go back into the die cut.  I keep a piece of washi tape close by to attach those smaller cuts to, so that I can continue to work on the rest of my card without accidentally knocking one off.

Now the specific stamp set I used is by Winnie and Walter and is called Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses, and is currently out of stock, sorry!  But you are still able to put your name on the back order list if you wish, or there are other ways to achieve this same look.  Simply mask off a rectangle area, or any shape you wish, stamp the area with a background stamp and voila.  I then colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (Lilac HB1, Hydrangea HB2, Fruit Pink PP5, Denim TB3).  I love the dreamy color blend I was able to create with these markers.  Finally, I diecut the thanks by Lawn Fawn and adhered the word with foam adhesive over the negative cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Happy Crafting!
