Happy Saturday everyone. it’s Holly here today with a card featuring the new Waffle Flower set…The Season. Can you believe it’s already the end of July and time for us to start thinking about Christmas cards?
This set is different and I think that’s what I liked about it. We see lots of Mermaids but rarely Mermen. And who could resist a Fun sentiment that says from your SEA-CRET Santa? I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and some Distress Oxide Inks. I added some Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, and Broken China with a Mini ink blending tool. Then I added some Faded Jeans around the upper edge to darken it up a bit. I set the cardstock aside to dry on its own. These colors will dry back a little softer than what they look like when they are wet.
I stamped all of the images I wanted from The Season set onto some additional Bristol cardstock using Ranger Archival Black Ink and colored them in with Distress Markers and a water brush. Once they were dry I used the coordinating dies and cut them out. I used the following Distress Markers: Blueprint Sketch, Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Brushed Corduroy, Cracked Pistachio, Tattered Rose, Pumice Stone, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple, Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, and Vintage Photo.
I trimmed the Distress Inked panel and adhered it to a White top folding card base leaving a White border on each side. Then I stamped a few of the Bubbles and the sentiment in VersaFine Black ink. I added some water droplets with a small paintbrush to the background and picked up the excess with a paper towel. I colored inside each bubble with some water as well to lighten up the ink. I adhered the images with some Liquid Glue and Foam tape. Then I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Glitter Pen to parts of the images and some Clear Nuvo Crystal Drops on the bubbles.
Have you started your Christmas Cards yet?
Thanks for stopping by today… We will see you tomorrow with a new challenge and Be sure to check out our Waffle Flower Sale in the Store on Monday, July 31st!!
Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Do you like adventures? I would like to say that I do. But I have found that as I get older, my adventurous level is decreasing! We are taking the kids to their first waterpark in a few weeks. This will be my second time ever to one. I am sort of freaking out!
The lantern die cut is made using black cardstock. I also ran the die with white cardstock to get the center piece. The center piece is colored in using Distress Crayons. I blended them with a baby wipe. Once the cardstock is dry, I stamped the phrase onto the white cardstock. The lantern is attached to a starry print.
I used the following Distress Crayons: Spiced Pumpkin and Mustard Seed.
I love this lantern! Makes me want to go on a camping adventure…maybe when the temperatures cool down!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hello, friends! Can you believe that July is almost over?!? School starts back up in less than one month. What have you been doing to fill up your days? We finally took the family to the beach today. First time this year and then we realized we never went last year. So hopefully, we can sneak in one more trip before school starts!
Today I am working with the Waffle Flower’s Pretty Foliage and Chameleon markers:
So I was a little late to the MISTI fan train. I have it for some time now and just recently found out how awesome the system is! I love how you can stamp the image in the same spot repeatedly for crisper lines. Once the ink was dry, it is time to color in with Chameleon markers. I tried to use colors from the fun print below.
Once the images were colored in, the sentiment is add in the top left corner. The sentiment is colored in using orange and yellow. The panel is then attached to the printed paper and then attached to the card base.
The following Chameleon markers were used on today’s card:
RD2, RD4, YG3, GR3, GR4, OL3, YL2, YO2, OR3, OR4, PK3
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
Hello! It is Lisa back here today and I have a fun party card to share with you today, created with several new Winnie and Walter Stamp Sets…
I stamped all of these party animals (from the Winnie and Walter: Happy Dance Set) onto separate cardstock and colored them in with Zig! Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I LOVE how easy these markers are to color in images and achieve great shading without a lot of effort. I then set them off to the side to let them dry.
Next, I worked on my background panel by stamping with the Mini Scenery Set: Spotty with Lawn Fawn’s Dye Ink in Juice Box. I also stamped my sentiments this time and adhered them to my background. These were then adhered to some Lawn Fawn Cardstock.
Once the animals were dry I cut all of them out and a few party hats too. For added dimension I used foam adhesive to adhere my dancing friends. I then finished the card off with star sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
