Happy Dance!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, hello!  It is Lisa here today and I have a happy little card that’s sure to make anyone’s Birthday even brighter!  This card features the new Winnie and Walter Happy Dance Stamp Set and the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Stamp Set

This was my first time using one of the Concord & 9th’s Turnabout sets, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was!  I do suggest that you visit their video on how to mark the center of your set and how to create your own template too.  Once I had done these myself I used bright Memento Colored inks all the way around.  I then set this panel to the side.

Next, I worked on my second panel by stamping this happy little guy in the middle and the sentiment from the Happy Dance Stamp Set with Memento Ink.  To color my bear in I used a mix of Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in Warm Beige and Saddle Brown.  I decided to go over the edges of this panel with Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet and Broken China.

At this point I still felt like there was something missing so I decided to stamp, color and cut some of the streamers to add to the panel.  After these were adhered to the front of the base I finished the card off with a few colorful sequins!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  And don’t forget to join our challenges and our current giveaway!

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!

Copics On Solid Stamped Images

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a fun technique to share with you today that can take your stamping to the next level.  Now, before I begin I want to state that if you don’t want to color your solid stamped images in, that is totally fine I don’t always do it or even think to do it on mine.  But, as a refresher or if you are looking for one more way to add depth and detail to those solid images using your Copic® Markers…

As you can see I’ve labeled the right side as no Copic® Markers used, and the left side as the Copics® used side.  Isn’t it cool to see the difference when they are lined up side by side?  Any who, these images are from the newly released Fab Flowers by Lawn Fawn.  They are super cute as is, and even thought they have a second “layer” that I have stamped on each image, you can still create more depth by shading the images in with Copics®.  Now keep in mind that these images were stamped in Copic® friendly ink, because we definitely do not want to cause damage to our precious markers, so make sure you are aware of what ink you’ve stamped your images in first.  I have used Memento Dye Inks: Rose Bud, Love Letter, Pear Tart, Cottage Ivy, Lulu Lavender, Elderberry, London Fog.  Copic® Markers used include: R24, R29, RV14, RV23, RV25, YG13, G14, V000, V12, V15, W3, W5.  Tips for this technique: Start by using your darkest marker choice first, this way if you go a little too heavy you can lightly up your coloring by going over it with a lighter marker.  Also, don’t be afraid to experiment and maybe even try coloring with a different, but complimentary color to the color you’ve already stamped your image in.

Since I had already colored the images up, I had to create a project with them…

I started by fussy cutting my stamped and colored images, and then created my frame with Lawn Fawn’s Stax Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Dies and Lawn Fawn Patterned Paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love to see what you create using this technique!  Also, Don’t forget to get your name entered in the amazing giveaway going on here right now!

For You: A Mix of Old and New

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello MarkerPOP fans! It’s Lisa here with you today and I hope you were able to get your orders in for the new CHA products available in the store, so much goodness to choose from! Anywho, today I’m here sharing a card using new products from Penny Black and My Favorite Things, mixed with an older Concord & 9th Set…

To create this card I started by stamping the sweet little hedge hog, from the Penny Black Furry Hugs Stamp Set, onto a panel of Neenah Solar White Card stock. I decided to color him with my Copic® Markers (Hedge hog: E50, E00, C1, C3, R20, Cupcake: R20, R22, RV10, RV23, RV25, V12, V15, O) before masking him off to add my background colors with Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass). I then created my own sentiment with the Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Stamp Set and Memento Dye Ink in Rose Bud. Next I die cut the bottom edge with the new My Favorite Things Stitch Scallop Basic Edges 2 Die Set. At this point I added a few droplets of water to the grass and sky for some interest and Nuvo Glitter Drops to the heart on the Cupcake in White Blizzard.

I finished the panel with a few Pretty Pink Posh Floral Sequins. When I came across an older piece of patterned paper that matched my colors I used it along the bottom part of my card base. And to bring it all together I tied the top off with a twine bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and make sure you check out all of the new goodies in the shop!
