Be You & Be Happy

Hi!  It’s Lisa here today and as we are celebrating Copics® this month with an incredible giveaway, click here to find full details on how you can be entered to win over $300 in goodies! Woot Woot!

A few weeks ago I had shared a post using my Copic® Markers on vellum, and so I thought I would share a few more step by step photos with how I did this on a different project.  Todays project features the newly released Be Strong Stamp Set by Altenew.  I love the fun font used with some really uplifting sentiments, plus it’s so different from the typical sets I buy that I just had to have it!

On this card the light strings and the cactus are all embossed and colored on vellum.  When creating a project like this is best to have a thicker vellum, mine is 65# so it can hold up to the embossing and is not likely to tear when I am coloring it.  Now I will share a few close ups of the coloring done on the lights…

Step 1. I embossed the lights onto my velum with gold embossing powder.

2. Next I turn it over and colored with Y15 and Y17.  Tip:  You always want to go darker with your color choices as the vellum will really soften them up.  This is the back side so the colors look a little brighter at the moment.

3.  This is another backside view showing that I’ve added a darker Yellow (YR24) to the lights, because they were barely showing through.  I’ve also added the blue to the top of the lights with B28.  Tip: Your coloring will not look “beautiful” or “precise” on the backside of the vellum, you merely want to get the color down so that when you flip it over the embossed edges will cover any imperfections and only the color will show through.

Also note that you will not really be able to blend with your markers on the vellum.  I do add layers of color, as you can see on the cactus with the greens (YG06, YG17, G29), but you need to wait for each color to dry before adding the next or you will erase the first color.  What you are mainly doing is layering the colors up on the backside, and when you flip the image over you will see what appears to be a watercolored look of blending.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll give this technique a try.  Why not try it with our latest challenge?

Happy Crafting!

Today we are looking at Lisa’s Favorite New Products !


Hello, hello!  It’s Lisa here, and I’m so excited to get to share some of my favorite new products being released at CHA this year!  There is so much out there during this time of year and sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, so hopefully these posts will help narrow some things down for you or at least show specific products you may not have otherwise seen.  Now let’s feast on some major eye candy…

First I have to talk about the newly released Stamping Bella Products.  Oh. my. gosh. Cuteness overload!  Not only do they have some of their classic images like new Uptown Girls, but they’ve introduced several new type of stamps one of them being the Squidgies…


Aren’t they the cutest?!  And to go along with these they released some adorable critters…


Another company that I want to share some of their newly released products would be Jillibean Soup.  I know many people thinking scrapbooking when they think of this company, but they also have some super fun stamping products, and this release is no exception…


Coffee is still all the rage in card making and this set is particularly awesome because it includes the dies with it! ( and at a great price too, I might add! )  For planner lovers they’ve got you covered…


And don’t forget the cute shaker embellishments and card bases themselves.  Making a shaker card can’t get any easier…



One more company that I wanted to highlight today would be Hero Arts.  Hero Arts always has a way of winning our crafting hearts and their newest release is no different.  I just love their new layered stamps like this gorgeous peacock…

And check out the amazing inks they’ve made to take all of the guess work out of the layering…


Speaking of inks check out their newest ombre color ink pads…




Are you drooling yet? I know I am, hehehe!  And I must mention one more thing the newest Lawn Fawn goodies are also NOW available for you to order, so hop to it!  I know so many of these new goodies will be flying off the shelves.

Remember all new CHA products will be able to be seen here at this link.  If you would like to be kept in the loop of new products, promotions, etc. make sure you sign up to receive the MarkerPOP newsletter (scroll down and look on the left hand side for an area that says subscribe, plus you’ll get a discount code!).

Happy Crafting/Shopping my friends!!!
