A Hello and A Goodbye

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello Crafters!

Today is bittersweet because this is my last post for MarkerPOP.

I’m sad to go because it’s been such a wonderful team but I also know it’s time to move on. Thank you so much for sharing in my journey for the past six months. I’ve had tons of fun and found endless inspiration.


For today’s card I started by painting some Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio onto my watercolor paper. Once that was dry I ran it through my die cutting machine with the new Neat and Tangled Wholehearted die.  I then set to work stamping 🙂 The very best part in my opinion.


I stamped two of the flowers and some leaves from the Fresh Blooms set. I colored them with my Copic markers in RV02, RV04, RC06, YG01, YG03 and YG17. I outlined them with a journaling pen and then fussy cut them out. I used my Memento Tuxedo Black Marker to outline the edges. For my sentiment I heat embossed the Painted Hello in white on black cardstock and fussy cut that out too. They have a die available you could use too, I just don’t own it.

I adhered the flowers down flat and popped the hello up with dimensional adhesive. I finished the card off with some gold sequins from the Sunset Shimmer mix.  

Thanks so much for everything!

Let’s Get Away

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello Crafters!

Today I have a pretty clean and simple (but colorful) card for you guys.


I stamped the super cute ship scene from Paper Smooches Sweet Escape in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I masked it and then created a second mask to add a square around it. Once everything was covered up I used distress inks and an ink blending tool to create a sunset background. From bottom to top I used Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet, and Salty Ocean Once that was done I removed all the masks to move on to the Copic coloring.


I chose colors that were pretty similar to my distress inks to “reflect” in the water. I used Copic Markers YR15, R20, R32, V12, V15, B00, B02, and B04. I worked in reverse on the distress inks blending my colors as I went. After all the colors were blended I went back in with the B markers and added small waves lines. I did the same thing with a white gel pen. I wanted the card to have a cleaner feel so I used my T-square ruler and a black pen to draw a border around my ink blending. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in black. To finish it off I gave my water a nice coat of Clear Wink of Stella.  

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Enjoy your weekend 🙂


Gone Fishing

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello Crafters!

While it’s swirling snow outside my window and I really needed a sweet summer image.

The new Gone Fishing stamp from Whimsy Stamps fit the bill perfectly.


Seriously, How cute are these bears? I’m so jealous of them enjoying a warm summer day!

I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored them up with my Copic Markers.


The Copics I used are: 0, R00, R20, R32, R35, R29, BG0000, BG11, BG34, BG45, BG49, B0000, B01, B24, B32, B28, Y00, Y04, E50, E53, E55, E57, E59, YG01, YG03, YG17, and YG67

The sentiment from WPlus9’s Happy Mail was an awesome fit!

Party Like an Animal

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Videos

Hello Crafters!

Happy Friday! You made it 🙂

Why don’t we celebrate with a party?


Okay it’s a small cuter party with big trimmings and I actually made it for my friend’s retirement but I think we can use it to celebrate Friday. She won’t mind. She’s cool like that.

We are using lots of good stuff from WPlus9 today including Party Animal, Unforgettable, and Sweets and Treats. I put together a video for you guys. Enjoy!

I love how bright it turned out. Just like my girlfriend 🙂 Those Distress inks really make a statement. I used Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, and Fossilized Amber for this background.


The Copic Markers I used are: C1, C3, C5, E0000, E00, E11, R32, R35, R29, R59, RV00, RV02, RV11, RV55, and RV09.

Thanks so much for dropping in!
