Chunky Thank You with Prima

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope your week has been a great one. It has been a busy one here, trying to get back to the normal routine after Spring Break. I had some neighbors helping me out, so I needed to come up with a fun thank you card to show my appreciation.

Today, I am working with Stampendous Chunky Thank You Cling Stamp and Prima Confections watercolors to create this card:

A stamped the image with black ink onto some watercolor cardstock. The image is colored in with Prima Confections watercolor paints.

***This is the first time I used Prima Confections paints. I am so pleased with how creamy and thick these paints are. I am not use to that thickness, so I will need to practice more with learning how to get light to dark shades of one color.***

To add some detail to the card, I added some sparkle to the butterflies by added a layer from the Wink of Stella pen. (It is hard to capture the sparkle in a photo.

To finish the card, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel with the image. The image is then attached to a black cardbase. I felt the card needed a little more detail, so I added a few drops of NUVO black Crystal Drops.

Thank you for stopping by today! Don’t forget, there are a few days left of the Copics Birthday celebration…be sure to join in for your chance to win!

Have a great day!

From the Herd!!!

Hello everyone.. Holly here today with a super cute interactive slider card featuring the new Farm Friends set from My Favorite Things. Before we get to the card details and a new video I wanted to remind you there’s still time to join our Copic 30th Birthday Giveaway!! You can find all the details in this post here. The contest is open until April 4th.

I started by die cutting a piece of Kraft card stock using the Large Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frame Die set. Then I used the inside piece of the frame to create my scene on. I used a piece of the MFT Watercolor Wash 6×6 Pad for the sky and a piece of the MFT Graphic Grid 6×6 paper for the grass. I used the Rolling Hills, & Grassy Hills dies from MFT to create the scene as well. For the slider area I used one of the Surf & Turf dies and a Spin & Slide disc from MFT as well.

I stamped all the images onto some X-Press it blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating die-namics and cut them out with my Big Shot. Then I adhered all the images to the scene. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered the image panel to a Kraft card base and added the Large Stitched Frame over it with some foam adhesive.

I used the following Copics: YG03, YG25, G07, Y11, Y13, Y15, C00, C1, C3, W00, W1, W3, W5, N4, N6, N8 , N10, YR04, R20, E000, E01, E02, E23, E25 & E27. 0 & Copics Sketch 0.3

Check out the video below for more details on how I created this card.

Reach for the Sky!

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

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend!  It is Spring Break here and we are currently experiencing some beautiful weather. (Not trying to rub into those who are currently dealing with a big snow storm.)
Today I am working with Hampton Art Reach for the Sky stamps and ZIG Clean Color Markers:
I stamped the image onto some watercolor cardstock. Once the ink dried, I used a variety of ZIGs to color in the scene. Recently, I have been seeing a trend were the artist does not fully color in the image. There is white space that is left in a tiny part of the image. I decided to give this technique a try with this card. I have fallen in love with and look forward to using it on future projects. The sentiment is stamped in the bottom corner.
The following ZIG Clean Color Markers were used on this project: 021, 036, 064, 065, and 081
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a great day!

Happy Mail!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Uncategorized

Hello everyone, it’s Holly here today with a cute card and a tutorial on how to create texture with your Copics. We are celebrating Copic’s 30th Birthday all month long here at MarkerPop. Head over to this post for all the details on how you can Win one of several prizes valued at over $300 we will be giving away.

I started by stamping the fun Harry the Stuffie Gets Happy Mail from Stampingbella onto some X-Press it Blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink. Then I colored him in with Copics in the follwoing Colors : E70, E71, E74, E77, E50, E53, E55, C1, C4, C6, C9, B0000, BV20, R24, R46 & 100.

Once I had the images colored the way I wanted it I added some texture to the bear’s fur with some ) Colorless Blender fluid.

I used an old washcloth.. but you can use any type of material that has some texture. I added a few drops of the colorless blender to the rag.

Then apply the rag using gentle pressure onto you image where you’d like to see the texture. I did it over the fur so it would have a stippled effect. I don’t hold the rag in the spot for long just dab around the image. If you want more texture you can repeat or hold it a little longer in the spot.

As I lift up it removed a little of the color and creates very tiny dots.

I used the image for a card buy die cutting the panels with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched rectangle Dies and then I die cut a piece of the new MFT Graphic Gris 6×6 paper pad. I adhered both panels to a card base that I die cut with the same dies. And then I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Black Card stock and heat embossed it in White. I die cut the sentiment using the Blueprints Die-namics #29 from MFT. I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape for height. I added a few Mixed Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a little Sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today.. Have a great rest of the Week and stay tuned for more Copic Tutorial from the Design Team all month long!
