Furr-Ever Friends

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

Happy Friday everyone, it’s Holly here today… Have you checked out the July Release from Newton’s Nook Designs? They are celebrating their Four year Anniversary this month with 6 new Stamp sets, a border die set and 4 Stencils. Today I’m using one of the new stencils from the July Release and the Furr-Ever Friends Set from the June Release.

I started with a piece of Bristol cardstock, using the Paw Print stencil form Newton’s Nook. I smooshed some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide onto the back of the stencil. Then I spritzed it with some water and flipped it over and laid it down on the Bristol. I let it sit for a few minutes then I used a paper towel to dab up any excess that may of come through the openings. I heat set the panel with a heat tool. The I die cut the panel using the MFT Blue Prints 15 Die-namics. You can see how I created the background and more ways to use these stencils in the video below.

I stamped the halo image from the Forever Friends set onto the panel with some Gold embossing powder , then I adhered the panel to a White top folding card base. I die cut the stitched cloud from the MFT End of the Rainbow die-namic and stamped the sentiment in the center. I adhered the Cloud with some foam tape leaving enough area to add the cat silhouette. I stamped the cat silhouette in Black ink and I heat embossed the Wings onto some Vellum in Gold. I cut the images out and adhered them to the cloud. For an extra touch of sparkle I added some Mixed Sequins from Neat & Tangled.

We’re also having a sale on all things Newton, so stop by the store and grab your Favorites today!!




Happy Birthday!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Uncategorized

Hello, MarkerPOP friends!!! July is a busy birthday month in my family. Do you have a certain month of the year that has more birthdays than others? Another month for us is May.

Today, I am working with the Avery Elle’s Birthday Bus stamp set and Chameleon markers:

To start this card, I stamped the van image onto white cardstock. The line for the road is drawn in with a black tip pen. I decided to add the presents to the top of the car and balloons above the card. I also used the black tip pen to draw in the balloon strings. To finish the scene, I added a couple exhaust puffs to the van. The sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card in the center.

I used lots of Chameleon markers to color in the scene, I started with the balloons and worked my way down the card, saving the van for last. To finish the card, I added a some white gel marks to each of the balloon.

The following Chameleon markers were used on today’s card:
NU1, NU2, NU4, BR2, BR4, BR5, YO2, YO3, YL2, BG4, BL2, BL3, BL4, PR4, YG3, GR3, RD2, RD4, BK4, CB, OR4, PK3
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great one!

Die Cutting a Background

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, hello!  And happy middle of the week!!!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a card I’ve created with one of the newer My Favorite Things Die Sets called STAX Color Drop.  I loved this set the minute I saw it, and it was just as fun to play with as I imagined it would be.  Take a peek…

To create this fun background that you see here I started by diecutting the two different sized drops from several Lawn Fawn cardstock colors.  Next, I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in Surf Blue, Blue Turquoise, and Satsuma to add some coloring and dots to the larger drops.  I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to make the backside of each drop sticky and randomly adhered them to my card front.  Finally, I added a sentiment from the MFT Whimsical Wishes Stamp Set.

I hope this gives you one more idea with how you can create your own backgrounds with a single die set.  We hope to see your projects in our latest challenge too!  Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
