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’re Going Places!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello everyone.. It’s Holly here today. I hope your week is starting off great! Today I have a fun slider card featuring the Adorable Up in the Air set from My Favorite Things and the coordinating dies.

I started by creating a White A2 size card base and then I created a cloud background using the MFT Stitched Cloud Edges to create a stencil and some Salty Ocean Distress Ink. Then I created another cloud background on a piece of White card stock that I die cut with the MFT Blueprints 29. Then I created a scene with some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics set. Then I die cut a channel into the panel using the MFT Slider Channel Die set.

I stamped all the images using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink onto some X-Press It Blending card stock and colored the images in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating Dies to cut them out. I adhered some of the images directly onto the scene. I created a slider for the Larger Balloon with the Channel die and the small circles from the MFT Surf & Turf Die set and three of the MFT Spin & Slide Discs.  You can find many videos on YouTube on how to use these discs. Once I had the slider all set up I attached the panel to the front of the card with some foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a strip of White card stock and used one of the banners from the MFT Blueprints 27 using VersaFine Black ink. I adhered t with some additional foam tape as well.

I used the following Copics to color the images:

Puppy: E70, E74 Baskets: E23, E25 Banner: BV13, BV17 Balloons: R24, R29, YR12, YR07, Y13, Y18, YG03, YG25, B24, B28. Tree: YG25, G07 House: E43, E44, E23, BG01, C2

Faux Watercoloring Needs Love Too!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It’s Lisa here today, and as you’ve seen we’ve been focusing on all things watercoloring this month on the blog.  So I have a card to share that can still fall under the watercoloring tutorial, but with no paints or water… Now I know what you’re thinking, shut the front door!  But there are so many great products available now that give the impression of watercoloring, without the work!  Here are just a few of such products…

My Favorite Things Written In Water Stamp Set

 

SugarPea Designs Watercolor Brushstrokes

 

My Favorite Things Patterned Paper Wash 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Altenew Watercolor Wonders Stamp Set

 

And here is what I’ve created for my “faux watercolor” project…

To create this card I started by diecutting my sentiment into my “watercolored” patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Wash Paper Pad.  I made sure to keep all of the tiny inside cuts off to the side and in a pile so that I would have them when I was laying the word cuts back into place.  I then used two other papers from the same paper pad and die cut the words to inlay over my first cut. Once the sentiment was done I stamped my butterfly image from the newly released Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set ,also by my Favorite Things, onto separate cardstock.  I then cut it out and adhered it to my cardbase.  Of course it wasn’t finished without some bling so I busted out my Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, and ta-da!

I was able to achieve the watercolor look with out any mess.  Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE watercoloring, and there is no mess as far as I’m concerned, but if you shy away from the paints then I wanted to share with you another option.

Hope to see you play along in our latest watercoloring challenge for a chance to win goodies!

Watercoloring Your Diecuts

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! This month the design team is going to be sharing a few of our favorite watercoloring supplies. I recently received my first Prima Confections Watercolor set. I fell in love with them! The watercolor is probably the thickest I have ever worked with!

Today, I am pairing up the watercolors with My Favorite Things dies. I love using watercolors to color paper when I cannot find the right shades of cardstock to work with!

 To start this card, I painted a variety of swatches using the different colors in the Tropical Confections set. I spaced the swatches out to allow room to fit the various dies.

Once the individual dies are cut, it is time to piece the card together! The Birdhouses die set includes the house, roof and the pole to assemble the house. There is also a couple little bird dies to add a little cute touch to your project.

The background panel is also covered with watercolor as well. I included a layer of grass diecut to add a little dimension to the card,

I wasn’t sure what I what kind of sentiment I wanted to use on this card. So I decided to leave it blank. I will be able to stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card that will fit whatever the occasion might be.

Thank you for stopping by today! Stop by the MarkerPOP blog for the list of supplies used on this card!

Have a wonderful day!

Jessi
