Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Can you believe that it is October already? Before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving! Do you have the Thanksgiving dinner at your house or do you go visit somewhere else? I usually go to my in-laws, but I always bring along a few side dishes.
Today I am working with the Hero Arts Thanksgiving Table and ZIG Clean Color Markers:
This stamp set includes several little images. I decided to use them to create a background print. I used the MISTI to help with the placement of the stamps. To fill in some of the empty space, I stamped green leaves. I used a variety of ZIGs to color in the images. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of cardstock and attached to the card.
The following ZIGs were used on this card:
024, 035, 040, 047, 064, 065, 067, 070, 072, 091, 092, 095

Hello! It’s Lisa here with you today and it’s time to get interactive, but in the easiest way ever! The Lawn Fawn Winter Release contained this adorable Door Die called Shut The Front Door. (Best name ever, don’t you think?!) This die makes it possible to hide anything you want behind the door, and allows the recipient to open the door and find the surprise! And all it takes is a little die cutting!
The front of this card just begs to be opened! To create the look of a house I used an older Lawn Fawn Paper Pad, but you can use what you have in your stash or one of their newer Paper Pads that are available in the store. Since I was going with a Christmas theme for this card I decided to go with whimsical house colors too. The trim along the top was an idea I had after seeing the owner of Lawn Fawn, Kelly Marie Alvarez, do it on one of her videos. I also mimicked the look of bushes by taking a decorative circle die and trimming off the bottoms. But let’s move on to the super cute part of this card…
The INSIDE!!! Look at that cute little Penguin wishing you a Merry Christmas!!! This little guy can be found in the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Set, and of course I had to give him a hat. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color him in and scissor to cut him out. There is also a matching die set to this stamp, but I sometimes like to cut things out by hand.
The sentiment comes from the latest Mama Elephant Stamp Set called Puffy Holiday Greetings. I used my Distress Oxide Ink in Candied Apple. I chose this ink as I knew it would leave a crisp impression, as well as cover the patterned paper I was stamping it onto.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my card today! I hope it brought you a little smile, and maybe some inspiration to crafty too! Make sure you check out our awesome Fall Challenge, which contains some pretty amazing giveaways too!!!
So go on with your bad self and get crafting!
