Happy Friday everyone.. it’s Holly here today. Can you believe it’s September 1st already? Where has this year gone? Today I have a fun card for you featuring the Adorable Gardening Birds set from Your Next Stamp.

I started with a Sketch from the Your Next Stamp blog and I created a Kraft Colored card base and added a piece of the Your Next Stamp Summer Plaid 6×6 Paper that I die cut with the YNS Stitched Square Dies. I adhered the piece with some tape runner and then I die cut a piece of Bristol Smooth paper with the YNS Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added some color to create a background with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I stamped the sentiment along the top with some VersaFine Black ink.

I adhered the panel to the card front with some foam tape. I stamped the images onto some additional Bristol paper using Ranger Archival Black ink and colored them in with the Zigs. I used the Nuvo Waterbrush set to move the color around. Once the images were dry I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card with some foam tape. For some sparkle, I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to parts of the images. I added some Coral Reef Sparkle Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp as well. I think this color is retired but you can find lots of Gumdrops from YNS in the store here. 

I used the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:

260 Deep Red, 80 Violet, 31 Colbalt Blue, 72 Beige, 21 Light Carmine, 65 Mid Brown, 41 Light Green, 50 Yellow, 52, Bright Yellow, 47 May Green, 36 LIght Blue, 40 Green & 44 Deep Green.

Thanks for stopping by today.. Have a great weekend and be sure to check out our Labor Day Sale in the Store this weekend.

Envelope Fun

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here with you today, and instead of sharing a card I have some fun postable artwork to share!  One of my favorite things is finding happy mail in my mailbox, but I always love the extra touches that paper crafting friends add to the envelopes.  After all the envelope is the first thing a person sees when going through their mail, so I decided to give a few of my envelopes a face lift too…

I decided to do a mix of white and colored envelopes more as an experiment for my own sake to play with the difference in coloring and the overall look.  All of these were done using the Waffle Flower Enveloper From Stamp Set.  These sets are made with envelopes in mind and I adore their unique designs.  Here are a few close ups of each individual envelope…

The first two envelopes I only did my stamping on the front side.  For the last envelope I decided to add this sweet dog image toward the bottom of the flap. To color my images in I used a wide mix of Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (FS2, FS3, CR2, PP3, BP3, HB2, PL4, IB2, BT5, LG2, LG3, TN1, TN4, OR1, CR7, CR8, BGR2, IG5).  I also added details with a white gel pen and Spectrum Noir Artliner Pens in Black.  I will admit that the white envelopes worked better as far as having no bleeding issues with my markers as they are a thicker envelope, so if this is something that would bother you then please take the thickness into consideration.  The stamping itself did not bleed through, but my coloring did only on my colored envelope.

I hope I’ve inspired you to maybe try something different and dress up those envelopes before putting your cards in the mail.  It’s just one more way to make people smile!

Happy Crafting!

Sending Birthday Wishes

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends!!! We are coming up on the end of summer. I am ready to start seeing some fall flowers popping up in our local gardens. This Texas summer heat has done a number on the flowers!!! What is your favorite fall flower? Mine probably would be sunflowers.

Today, I am showcasing the WPlus9 Design’s Modern Peonies stamp set and ZIG Clean Color markers:

The floral image is stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used only a few ZIG colors to color in the image. In fact, only one shade of each color was used. Find out below the exact colors used. To highlight the flower, I used a very light watercolor blue background.

Once the watercolor was completely dry, I used a fancy scalloped frame die to cut out the panel. The panel is attached to kraft cardstock. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment using brown ink onto the card. The final touch was to add three clear droplets to the card.

The following ZIG Clean Color Markers were used on today’s card:

024, 026, 036, 041, 052

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Flora An Fauna, The New Stamps on The Block

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, hello!  It’s Lisa here today and I’m excited to share a card I’ve created with a new to MarkerPOP stamp company called Flora And Fauna.  (They just released a new winter collection, so make sure you check those out too!)  The set I’ve chosen to work with is called Oh Hello Friend, and offers a sweet arrangement of floral images as well as two sentiments to mix and match.  Take a peek at what I’ve created…

To create this card I started by stamping my largest flower first and masking it.  Next, I stamped the rest of the flowers and leaves, as well as the sentiment.  I used a variety of Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to color the flowers in.  At first I wasn’t sure about stamping the leaf images in black, but I think it only helps the colors pop.  Finally, I added some background color in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to opposing corners.  For added interest to the card front I adhered some patterned paper, before adhering the stamped panel with foam adhesive.

I hope you’ll get to stop by the store and see the rest of the stamp sets created by Flora and Fauna, and if you have any of their sets make sure to get crafty and link them up to our current challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Lisa
