Sorry, Friend

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope you are enjoying the beautiful day! This card seems fitting for today, because well...I am running behind. So better late than never right!?

I recently saw a video about using Zig Markers and creating a stain glass window look. I figured I would give it a try for today's card.

I am using the Waffle Flower's Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set to create the card below.

Starting with a piece of vellum, I stamped the image with embossing ink and covered the image with white embossing powder. I used a heat gun to melt the entire image. Once the embossing was cool, I flipped the vellum over and used a variety of ZIG Markers to color in the image. Because you are coloring on the backside, you can be forgiven for coloring outside of the lines.

When the coloring was completed, the vellum is trimmed down to size to fit on the front panel of the card. The sentiment is created using a couple different supplies. The 'SORRY' is created using a word die and black cardstock/ The 'FRIEND' is stamped and embossed in black onto the vellum.

I loved the stain glass technique and cannot wait to give it another try!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Joy Clair's Father Day Promotion

Today is a fun day on the Joy Clair blog! The design team is doing a special promotion with the super cool Dad's Day stamp set. The team is showing you several different ideas that can be done with this stamp set.

Here is a look at what is included in the Dad's Day stamp set:

No automatic alt text available.

For today's card, I decided to use the 'Star Wars' theme stamp.

The Yoda stamp is stamped in the middle of the card. It is immediately covered with gold embossing powder and heated with a heat gun. I then used the stars from the Three Wise Men stamp set and filled in all the empty space. The stars are also covered in embossing powder. This is were my plan was to finish the card. However, I decided to use some colored pencils to color in the Yoda image.

I love how this card turned out! Perfect for those fathers who love Star Wars!

I hope that I have inspired you! If you are looking for more inspiration, hop on over to the Joy Clair blog to see what the other design team members have created!

Joy Clair and Imagine Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends! Today is a super fun day! It is the first day of the Joy Clair and Imagine Blog Hop. The design teams from both companies have joined in a for special 2 day blog hop! You should be arriving from the talented, Neva's blog! If you just happened upon the blog hop and would like to start from the beginning, hop on over to the Imagine blog.

Joy Clair has a line of faith-based stamps, Color by Faith. I have decided to put together a couple of Bible pages using the Color by Faith stamps and some delicious Imagine products.

First up, I have paired the God's Treasure stamp set and Imagine's irRESTible - gold.

I love the shine that the irRESISTible leaves. It reminded me of jewelry, so I stamped the jewel images along the side of the page. Once the ink was dried, I filled in the image with the gold irRESISTible, giving the finished product a shiny coat. The phrase is stamped in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink and the dotted lines are stamped using Memento - London Fog.

I used Memento - Tuxedo Black to stamp the design images along the side of the Bible page. I used the following Fireworks: Lilac Posies, Cottage Ivy, and Rose Bud to color in the images. I poured some of the product out onto a clear stamp block. Using a small paintbrush, I colored in the images. I love the shimmer that the Fireworks leave once they are dried. (I had a hard time capturing the shimmer in the photos.)

Let's talk about prizes!

Be sure to leave comments during these two days of hop so you can be entered to win a one of two $25 Joy Clair Stamps Gift Cards or one of two $25 Gift Cards from Imagine!!! Joy Clair winners will be announced on the Joy Clair Blog at the end of the month and Imagine winners will be announced on the Imagine Blog.

Thank you for stopping today! Enjoy the hop!

Your next stop is the talented, Nadine!

Joy Clair Tip-in with God's Focus

Hello, Joy Clair friends! It is Jessi here. I am cannot wait to show you today's project! This month, the design team is working with layers. So today, I am sharing a tip-in I created to be added into my Bible.

Today's project is showcasing the Color by Faith's God's Focus stamp set:

For this tip-in, there is a front and a back to it. So let's start with the front. I stamped the hanging pictures image and colored in with a green marker. The camera is stamped onto printed paper and cut out. I used a fun bright piece of scrapbook paper for the tip-in. Multiple pieces are used to create the top layer. The pictures and camera images are attached. I used a printed tag to stamp the Bible verse. The tag is then added to the tip-in. To added a few more elements to the tip-in, I hand out some clouds and attached on different edges of the tip-in. A tab and printed banner are also attached.

When you flip the tip-in over, I decided to include a picture of the family god has blessed me with.  I wanted the picture to be the highlight of this side, so I only added one simple banner.

The tip-in is attached to the Bible page with a piece of washi tape. I did trim off a small piece of the tape next to the paper to allow the tip-in to flip easier.

Llama Tell You Thank You

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Llamas are pretty popular right now! I have seen them on stamps, papers, clothes, name it! Everywhere you turn, there are llamas! I just chuckled as I wrote that... a few weeks ago, my daughter's field trip was at a local wildlife zoo. You know, the kind you drive your car through and the animals are roaming free. While I was leaving the zoo, I turned the corner and the road was being blocked by a number of llamas. They would not budge, so I had to sit there surround by llamas.  Anyway, that is my llama story, guess I should move on to my card :)

Today's card uses the super cute Gerda Steiner Designs Llama Tell You and Echo Park's Summer Dreams papers:

The stamped images are on white cardstock and called in with Chameleon markers. The images are then cut out using the coordinating dies. I used other dies to create the panel for the scene. I used a paper pad to make it super easy to coordinate the papers.

The scene is pieced together. The panel is then attached to another coordinating print. The sentiment is stamped onto a thin strip of paper and attached towards the bottom of the card. To finish the card, I added a few NUVO drops to fill in the empty space next to the sentiment.

Stop by the MarkerPOP blog for the list of supplies used on today's card.

You Are Out Of This World

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

Joy Clair Layering Images

Hello, Joy Clair friends! It is Jessi here. I am cannot wait to show you today's project! This month, the design team is working with layers. One way to add layers to your project is to stamp and cut out individual elements.

Today's project is showcasing the Joy Clair's Doodle Flowers stamp set:

To start this card, I stamped a variety of images onto white cardstock. The images are colored in and cut out individually. The jar image is stamped onto a printed piece of paper and cut out. A frame is created using two rectangle dies.

The frame is attached to printed paper. The jar image is glued with in the frame. Now it is time to add the different layers of flowers to the jar. The first layers to be placed are the leaves. One is placed on each side of the jar. One flower image is attached in the center of the leaves.

To finish the card, the remainder of the flowers and leaves were slipped into the place. A simple sentiment from the Joy Clair's Everyday Sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card.

Watercolor Background with Altenew

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I love to work with bright colors, but I am switching it up today! Throughout the month, the design team is showcasing different watercolor products and techniques on the MarkerPOP blog!

Today, I am creating a watercolor background print. I am using the Altenew's You Make Me Happy stamp set (currently out of stock, but check out the other Altenew floral stamp sets HERE) and ZIG Clean Color markers.

To start this card, I stamped the images with white ink and embossing powder. The embossing powder creates the raised edges to help keep the paint in the right place. I used soft colors to fill in the image. The stems are colored in using ZIG Clean Color - May Green (047 ). The center of the flower is colored in with Light Carmine (021). Light Pink (026) was used on the inside of the flower petals. To fill in the background, Light Blue (036) was used.  To finish the card, the simple sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
