Newton’s Christmas

Written by Heidi. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Saturday Spotlight

Hello everybody, Heidi here, welcome back to the Marker POP blog, I hope you had a great week. Today I am sharing some Christmas inspiration featuring Newton’s Nook “Naptime” stamp and coordinated die set, I also use elements from other brands, which I will list below, however the main focus of my card is Newton sleeping on the blankets on Christmas night. Let me show you the card and I will be telling you a little bit more about it.


20151116_144015I blended a night sky background using Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks and I used a stencil to add some snow. Then I cut the window using the “Die-namics Blueprints No.20” and I also place some a stitched snow hill on the out side of the window. The lights hanging form the window are from the “Baaah Humbug” stamp and coordinated die by Lawn Fawn, and the silhouette of the Santa’s sled and reindeer are from the “Ready Set Snow” stamp set

20151116_144028I colored Newton and the blankets, and the the Christmas lights using Copic Markers and added some details with a white gel pen and Glossy Accents. I stamped the sentiment ditectly on the card panel from the “Cozy Christmas” stamp set by Lawn Fawn, and I adhered the card panel to the card base using foam adhesive.

I hoped you enjoyed this card and that you got some inspiration for your Christmas and holiday projects.
Have a lovely day!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll see you soon with more projects and inspiration.

Hello everybody, Heidi here! Today I am sharing with you some inspiration using the “Santa’s Elves” stamp and coordinated die set by My Favorite Things. I love everything elf related and this adorable set is not exception!

Let me show you the card and I will be telling you a little bit more about how I created this card

20151110_174530_001I cut a panel of white cardstock using the larger stitched rectangle by Lawn Fawn, then I cut the largest Dienamics stitched tag by My Favorite Things and I used the English Brick Wall stencil by My Favorite Things to created the background on the tag; I used “Peacock Feather Distress Ink” to ink the stenciled background.  

20151110_174630I die cut and stamped the images and then I colored them using Copic Markers, I heat embossed the sentiment on to black cardstock using white embossing powder, and I arranged the elements which I adhered to the card using foam and liquid adhesive.  To finish the card I added some gold ‘Stickles‘ to the trim of the tree, some Wink of Stella, and some Ranger glossy accents 

Copic Markers I used: YG97, YG07, YG05, E00, E02, E13, R89, R27, R24, BG49, BG15, BG13, T02, T00, E27, E25, E57, W01, W03, W05,

Hello everybody Heidi here with a new Marker POP challenge! This time we are hosting a very exciting challenge, “Any Shape But A Rectangle” how fun is that? I have some inspiration for you using Mama Elephant stamps and dies.

I made this ornament-tags using the adorable “Reindeer games” stamp and die set by Mama Elephant, I used other elements that I’ll list below. Let me show you and I will tell you all about it!

DSC_8242To cut the base of this round tag I used the large of the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Circle Tags” on white cardstock. Then I cut the Snow Capped Mountains by Mama Elephant and I inked the stitched tops. Then I cut a snow border using the Mama Elephant creative cuts “Landscape Trio” to set the little deer. I inked the little snow border a little bit to give it some of dept. 

DSC_8253I stamped and colored all the images using Copic Marker, then I die cut them, using the “Reindeer games” Creative cuts coordinated dies. I set the scenes, and I adhered all the elements using foam adhesive and liquid glue. I also added some details to the deer using a white gel pen.

DSC_8222To finish the tags I die cut a the smallest bow out of red cardstock using a “Dienamics Beautiful Bows” by My Favorite Things,” but you could used any bow you have handy or even ribbon. Then I thread some red and white bakers twine through the tag’s holes. At this point, you can decide, if you want a tag, then stamp the words “to and from” in the back, or you could make an ornament out of it, by inserting the tag in the middle of one of those ornaments that come in two halves, these tags fit perfectly in the 70 mm. ornaments. 

I hope you got inspired to enter this challenge, you’ll have until the Friday November 13th to enter.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a lovely day!


Holiday Card Featuring Mama Elephant and Pretty Pink Posh Sequins

Written by Heidi. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tips & Tricks

Hello everybody, Heidi here! Today I am sharing with you a card featuring the new “Twinkle towns” stamp set by Mama Elephant. I love making cards that have backgrounds with sequin work, so I’m always on the look out for stamps and die sets that let me do that, so as soon I saw this set I thought that I needed it, in order to make these sort of cards. Let me show you the card and I’ll briefly tell you how I make it. I didn’t do a step by step tutorial, however it is the same process of another card that I made back in July, so I will link it HERE and there is a photo tutorial on that post.

DSC_8173First I cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, then I cut the two circles, after that I stamped the Christmas bauble or ornament. You will need a circle die that is a little bit smaller than the stamp. I adhered the sequins directly on to the card base and then I adhered the die cut panel with foam adhesive. 

DSC_8172I used the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts “Twinkle towns” “Oh joy” die cut sentiment and the little bow from the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Basic set, I cut them out of foil paper. The sequins that I used were Pretty Pink Posh Red Raspberry and Metallic Gold in cupped 6mm.

I hope you enjoyed this very simple card, you can try any combination of sequins, or try to make patterns. I promise you it’s very simple to glue the sequins using a quick stick or any other sticky tip tool, you can do that while you watch your favorite TV show or talk over the phone.

Thanks so much for stopping by I’ll see you soon with more inspiration and projects!
