{Happy Thursday, Crafters! Valerie here, and I know you’ll all know what I’m talking about here… Life has been utterly crazy for me! With surgery (and the recovery from it), starting a new full-time job while still working the old part-time job, my son’s Prom, AND a death in the family, things have been quite crazy for me. SO, with that said, I apologize for not having a post done for today! HOWEVER, I had this one ready to go on my blog for another day, so I decided to pull it over here to the MarkerPop blog, instead, because I think we can all understand my situation, right?!}

I had to make 2 completely different cards yesterday; one for my friends who are Expecting (YAY!!), and one for my Aunt & Uncle who unexpectedly lost their daughter, my cousin; talk about complete opposites. And actually, you could say that the card making was actually a therapy for me, as I’m grieving my wonderful cousin that we have lost way too soon.

Let’s start with the happy card! For this one, I pulled out a sweet old Lawn Fawn set, Plus One, and it’s coordinating die set. All the other dies used for this card are also Lawn Fawn; you can see them in the supply list at the end. I colored the image with Copic Sketch markers. The sequins are Pretty Pink Posh cupped sequins: Cornflower 4mm & Pink Blush 6mm.

For my condolences card, I pulled out a favorite Altenew set of mine, Extra Special. It stamps beautifully, and the image is just so pretty. I stamped the purples with the inks from Altenew’s Shades of Purple ink set. The greens are from Altenew’s Tropical Forest ink set.

Thanks for stopping by, and hug your loved one real tight <3





Organic Blooms

Hi Crafters! Valerie here! I enjoyed coloring this set so much, that I couldn’t stop at one card, so I made two! It’s the Mama Elephant Organic Blooms stamp set.

The first card features yellow roses, and it’s a “Thinking of You” type of card. And the second one, featuring pink roses, can be for any happy occasion, because it says “Happy Everything”!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto X-Press It Blending Card paper (using my Mini Misti), and colored it with Copic Sketch markers (colors listed at the end).

I die cut the X-Press IT paper with the scalloped rectangle die from Mama Elephant’s Creative Cute Basic Die Set. Then I took the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangle die set and placed it on top of the scalloped die cut piece, and ran it through my Sizzix with all the plates set to make only any embossing of the die on the paper.

The card bases (the black piece and the light blue piece) are die cut using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle die set. The cute little banners are die cut using the small die from Lawn Fawn’s Extra Sentiment Banners die set.

All the sequins are Pretty Pink Posh: 4mm & 6mm Cupped Onyx, 4mm Cupped Marshmallow, 4mm & 6mm Clear Droplets. I painted all the tiny leaves with my Zig Clear Wink of Stella

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Good morning! It’s Valerie today with this cute shaker card!

I have ALWAYS loved the Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters stamp set, so when they released this wonderful coordinating sentiment stamp set, Lucky Dog Two, I ordered it right away!
