With Sympathy

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

{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





Piñata Kind of Day…

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here and today I have a cute CAS card to share with you that is sure to brighten anyones day.  When I first saw the Piñata Squidgy Set by Stampingbella I just adored the little girls face.  As I looked at the set more, I fell in love with the sentiment too!

Isn’t she the cutest?!  To create my card I started by stamping the girl and piñata images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.  I LOVE this cardstock… the thickness is amazing, and your Spectrum Noir Markers blend beautifully on it!  Any who, I colored these images in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.  I have to brag a little about these markers too as I really like the thin nib on one end that allows you to get into tiny areas easily (and they are on sale, and I mean big time sale!).  Once they were completely colored I fussy cut them out and set them to the side.  Next, I worked on my frame by diecutting some yellow and blue watercolored patterned paper by Lawn Fawn with the My Favorite Things Stax Stitched Mini Scallop Oval.  I then stamped the piñata image again, but onto the blue patterned paper and without coloring it in.  I used Tombow Mono Glue to adhere my colored and cut images onto my card front, and I finished the card off my stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are able to join us in our newest challenge, and don’t forget to check out the awesome giveaway that is happening now!

You Are Out of This World

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! This is the last day for Teacher Appreciation Week for our local schools. So I have been working on a few cards to hand out to our teachers. I found it challenge it make a card for my son to give to his teacher. I wanted the card to share some of his personality.

This month, the design team will be using a variety of different alcohol markers. One of my favorite marker brand is Chameleon Markers. I love how easy these markers are to use. The blending comes so easy with these markers.

Today, I am working with the Lawn Fawn’s Out of This World and a bunch of Chameleon markers.

I wanted to create a scene in the center of the cut out of the card. To start the card, I stamped the planet images and colored them with the alcohol markers. The spaceman image is also stamped onto white cardstock, colored in, and cut out. I used a few different grays to color in the background of the scene.

To add some additional elements to the card, I added glossy accents to the spaceman’s mask. I added “stars” to the scene, by adding enamel drops. The sentiment is stamped and embossed ink white on black cardstock. The cardstock is then cut out in a strip and attached to the card.

The following Chameleon markers were used to color in this card: RD2, RD4, VO2, VO4, OR3, OR4, YO2, YO3, CG5, CG8, BR2, PR4, BG4, BL3, BL6, BG4, PK3, NU1, NU2

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Inlaid Die Cutting: A Treat For Your Eyes!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I have a fun card that not only looks beautiful, but can really play tricks on your eyes, check it out…

With the use of a technique called Inlaid Die Cutting I was able to add my sentiment in the middle of my image, while keeping the entire image intact!  It’s so cool, and I love the results every time I do it.  The trick to this technique is making sure you keep all of the little pieces that go back into the die cut.  I keep a piece of washi tape close by to attach those smaller cuts to, so that I can continue to work on the rest of my card without accidentally knocking one off.

Now the specific stamp set I used is by Winnie and Walter and is called Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses, and is currently out of stock, sorry!  But you are still able to put your name on the back order list if you wish, or there are other ways to achieve this same look.  Simply mask off a rectangle area, or any shape you wish, stamp the area with a background stamp and voila.  I then colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (Lilac HB1, Hydrangea HB2, Fruit Pink PP5, Denim TB3).  I love the dreamy color blend I was able to create with these markers.  Finally, I diecut the thanks by Lawn Fawn and adhered the word with foam adhesive over the negative cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Happy Crafting!
