Happy Friday everyone… Who’s ready for the weekend? Today I have a Cute Halloween card using the Boo set from Waffleflower Crafts. This is another Big Bear and Bird collaboration and they have the sweetest images.
I created a background with some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and the Cloud Border stencil from My Favorite Things on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I die cut a post it note to create a circle template and created the cloud with some Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I added some water splatters to the background and dabbed the excess with a paper towel creating the distressed look. Once it was dry I used the retired Blueprints #15 Die-namics from MFT to die cut it the panel.
I stamped all of the images onto some Bristol smooth cardstock using Ranger Archival Black ink and the Mini Misti. Then I colored the images in with Distress Markers in the following colors: Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Tea Dye, Wilted Violet, Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw, Carved Pumpkin & Spun Sugar. I moved the color around with the Nuvo Aqua Flow Water brushes. I used the coordinating Boo dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the panel with some foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner with some Black ink and adhered the panel to a Black A2 size card base. I wanted a little bit of sparkle so I added some Nuvo drops in White Blizzard to the hat, Bat wings and Ghost cheeks. When using the drops as an accent rather than creating dots, you want to spread it around so it’s just a thin layer and it will dry flat.
You can find more details on how I created this card in the video below!
Thanks for stopping by today.. Have a great weekend!
Hello MarkerPOP friends! School is in session! What does that mean? Time for the parents to go WILD…right?
Today, I am showcasing the Neat & Tangled’s Wild Ones and ZIG Clean Color markers:
To start the card, I stamped the giraffe image onto watercolor cardstock with black ink. Once the ink is dried, the image is colored in using ZIG Clean Color markers. The image is then cut out and set aside. I used prints from the Doodlebug At the Zoo 6×6 paper pad to create the layers onto the card. The sentiment is stamped onto a print and attached to the card. The giraffe is attached to complete the card.
The following ZIG Clean Color markers were used on today’s card:
028, 052, 062, 065, 070
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
hehehe! I can’t help it! I know I’m super early with a Christmas card, but when all of these amazing stamp companies start releasing all of the new Christmas goodness I just have to play!!! It’s Lisa here, btw, and today I’m having fun with the new Avery Elle Stamp Set called Winter Woodland Wonders.
See the cuteness?! How could I resist? To create this card I started by stamping the birch trees on my panel as a background. I then added the sentiment and ornament. On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the ornament a second time along with 5 holly and that adorable bear. I knew that I wanted my bear to be in the foreground of my card so I die cut the hill and added Nuvo Glimmer paste in Moonstone with my finger and set it off to dry. I went back to my stamped images and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.
Once everything was colored I cut out the bear, the bottom part of the ornament and the holly to adhere to my card. The snowy hill was added to the bottom front with foam adhesive tape. I then went back and added some light blue snowflakes to the background. After the stamped panel was complete I layered it onto some striped patterned paper from Lawn Fawn.
Hello! It’s Lisa here today and I have a fun Halloween card to share with all of you today using the new Avery Elle Bad Kitty Set. Since this set is smaller, it’s also lighter on the wallet which is always a good thing! But don’t underestimate it’s size, this set can still pack a big and spooky punch…
To create this card I started by stamping my pumpkin and cat onto separate cardstock. I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in TN5, TN8, OR1, OR2, CT2, IG5, IG6, IG8, DR1, DR2, LG2 to color them in before cutting them out. When I am handing cutting an image I like to go over the edges with my Memento Marker in Tuxedo Black. This may seem a little redundant, but trust me it can make a big difference. After these guys were are set for my card I started working on my cardbase. First, I stamped the bats to look like they would be flying out of the pumpkin. Next, came my spider web, spider and sentiment in the opposite corner. To achieve a night sky I used a mix of Distress Oxide and Distress Inks. My spider web seemed to fade more into the background than I wanted it to so I traced over the image and drew a line to my spider with a white gel pen. I like the shadow effect it gave too.
A few mist splatters later and my cardbase was ready for my witch kitty and pumpkin. I layered the pumpkin with foam adhesive for dimension to my scene. Everything looked cute, but I still felt like it was lacking one more thing… bling! So I added one red rhinestone to the cats collar and called it a day.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to join in our biweekly challenge, as this time MarkerPOP is giving away a nice Nuvo Goodie Pack!
