Happy Mother’s Day

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

I am SOOO happy I ordered this set from MarkerPop, the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers stamp & die set! It is just SO pretty, and incredibly easy to work with; plus, look at the results! This card is also using the new & great-to-have-on-hand Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp set, and the fun coordinating die set.

ALL the inks used on this project are Lawn Fawndamental inks; they stamp perfectly, with such rich, crisp, bright color. You can see in the Supply List below all the colors I used.

The dies used to get that fun zig-zag edge are Lawn Fawn’s STAX Zig Zag Square Stackables. I mounted each finished piece onto a square cut that was done with Lawn Fawn’s STAX Large Stitched Square Stackables.

My finishing touches were adding a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Cupped 3mm sequins, and painting Zig Clear Wink of Stella on the butterfly.

What a fun, carefree card to make. I highly suggest it to anyone wanting some light crafting with a beautiful result!

Heartfelt Thanks!

Happy Friday everyone.. Our Watercolor month is coming winding down so be sure to head over to this post to find out how to enter our Giveaway if you haven’t yet. And both of our Bi-Weekly challenges are still open as well. This week’s challenge is all about watercolor florals.

I’ve created a card using the Beautiful Bouquet: Ranunculus set from WPlus9 and Distress Inks to water color with. I have a new video at the end where you can follow along as I create this card.

I stamped the image onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper with some VersaMark ink and I heat embossed it using Fool’s Gold embossing powder from WOW! This is a Gorgeous Rose Gold Glitter.

I smooshed several Distress inks: Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Crushed Sapphire, Forest Moss and Weather Wood onto a craft mat creating a palette. Then using a #4 paint brush, I added some clean water and dropped the color into the image. I heat set the image as I went along building up the colors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mama Elephant set Organic Blooms. I heat set that with some Metallic Brass powder from WOW! I trimmed the sentiment out and adhered it with some foam adhesive. Then I trimmed 1/4″ off the edge of the panel and added it to a top folding A2 size Light Grey card base. I wanted a litter more of the Rose Gold color so I added some Rose Gold sequins.

You can see more details on how I created this in the video below.

Thanks for stopping by today!

 


Toad-ally Awesome

Today I’m featuring a bunch of new products in the MarkerPop store! First, my set of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers, and then My Favorite Things‘ (MFT) new (and a tad older!) stamp & die sets. 

I created a fun interactive card that combines these MFT products: 

 All the images are colored with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and my Water Brush onto Distress Watercolor cardstock.

I integrated a couple trusty Lawn Fawn dies into this project, Grassy Border and STAX Large Stitched Rectangle. The patterned papers are MFT’s: Dots & Stripes Neutral and Subtle Plaids. These Pretty Pink Posh (PPP) cupped sequins were such a cute addition to this sweet card:

And the cute googly eyes on the frog are PPP Silly Eyes 4mm.

Faux Watercoloring Needs Love Too!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It’s Lisa here today, and as you’ve seen we’ve been focusing on all things watercoloring this month on the blog.  So I have a card to share that can still fall under the watercoloring tutorial, but with no paints or water… Now I know what you’re thinking, shut the front door!  But there are so many great products available now that give the impression of watercoloring, without the work!  Here are just a few of such products…

My Favorite Things Written In Water Stamp Set

 

SugarPea Designs Watercolor Brushstrokes

 

My Favorite Things Patterned Paper Wash 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Altenew Watercolor Wonders Stamp Set

 

And here is what I’ve created for my “faux watercolor” project…

To create this card I started by diecutting my sentiment into my “watercolored” patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Wash Paper Pad.  I made sure to keep all of the tiny inside cuts off to the side and in a pile so that I would have them when I was laying the word cuts back into place.  I then used two other papers from the same paper pad and die cut the words to inlay over my first cut. Once the sentiment was done I stamped my butterfly image from the newly released Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set ,also by my Favorite Things, onto separate cardstock.  I then cut it out and adhered it to my cardbase.  Of course it wasn’t finished without some bling so I busted out my Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, and ta-da!

I was able to achieve the watercolor look with out any mess.  Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE watercoloring, and there is no mess as far as I’m concerned, but if you shy away from the paints then I wanted to share with you another option.

Hope to see you play along in our latest watercoloring challenge for a chance to win goodies!

Happy Crafting!
