Happy Belated Birthday

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It is Jessi here and I am excited to step away from holiday cards and show an everyday card with you today.

Today's card is using the super cute, WPlus9's Friends for All Seasons: Fall.

I love my ZIG Clean Color Brush markers. They are so easy to work with. I decided to use them in a careless way today. I stamped the images in black ink and let the ink dry completely.

I used a variety of ZIG Clean Color markers to color in the scene. I did not want the color to fully cover the image, so I left uncolored parts throughout the scene. Once the watercolors were dry, I used a fun die to cut of the scene. The scene is attached to a printed paper and mounted onto a card base.

Please stop by my MarkerPOP post for a list of supplies.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Prepping My ADORNit Planner

I am planning to make some changes in the upcoming New Year. One of those changes is to be better organized. With all the activities that my family is involved in, it is time to get a planner in place and used! I was super excited to see the ADORNit planner they sent me for being an ADORNit Ambassador. They have a few different styles available, but you can find the one I have, HERE.

Here is the front cover of the Calendar Girls Planner: (I am still trying to figure out what I want to put in the banner...any suggestions?)

It is super cute that this planner even has a beautiful design on the spine of the planner! Could not let that go uncolored!

I LOVE the image on the back cover of the planner. I even colored this side first!

I used a variety of colored pencils to color the planner. But you can use paints, crayons, and markers. Whatever your heart desires! It does take awhile to color in the covers and spine, but it is so worth it when you see the final outcome!

So the next step in prepping my new planner is to color the monthly dividers that are included. I look forward to posting those once I am finished coloring them! Be sure to stop by to check them out!

Did you know the ADORNit has an Amazon store? Stop by and check out the selection available!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!


Pink & Main Cocoa Kisses

Hello, Pink & Main friends! I apologize for the late post today. It has been a little crazy here and I finally had time to sit down and write this post. I am excited to share today's card with you. And now I am craving some holiday cookies!

Today I am using the Cocoa Kisses and coordinating dies:

I fell in love with the different cookie stamps included in the set. I wanted to make a card that highlighted the images. I decided to use the no-line technique to color in the cookies. The cookies are stamped in a light brown distress ink. I colored in the cookie outline with the matching ink. I love that there are individual stamps to decorate the cookies. I used red, yellow, and green to decorate the top of the colors.

The stamp set also includes a fancy sentiment. I stamped this in green and used the matching dies to cut it out. At the last minute, I decided to add a fun gingerbread man. The image is stamped in a darker brown and colored in with distress inks. This image is also cut out using the matching die. I added a piece of twine as the final touch when assembling the card.

Thank you for stopping by today!

DCWV & Chameleon Blog Hop

Hello, DCWV friends! Today, I am teaming up with a few other design team members from DCWV and Chameleon for a super fun Friend Friday blog hop.  If you are not familiar with Chameleon Markers, you can check them out HERE!

I was super excited when I learned about this blog hop. I love my Chameleon markers and have been using them for a while! I was excited to try out some new colors. I received their Color Tones Skin Tone set to play with. I knew exactly what stamp I wanted to use! So it was time to pair it up with some beautiful DCWV paper!

I decided to pair up the Chameleon markers with the DCWV Happy Day Stack. To start the layout, I stamped the image onto different cardstocks and prints to paper-piece the image together. I used the markers to color in the image.  I wanted the layout showcase a lot of the prints from the stack, so I created several layers using the different prints.

I used simple, gold alpha stickers to create the title of the layout, I wanted to highlight the gold accents throughout some of the prints.

Please stop by the DCWV blog and the Chameleon blog to see some more amazing creations created for this blog hop!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Merry Christmas Tag

Hello, MarkerPop friends! It is Jessi here today. I am excited to share with you my latest project. I paired up a couple different stamp sets with a super adorable paper pad for today's project.

I decided to take a step away from cards and create a tag. I used the C.C. Designs Layering Tag dies and My Mind's Eye's Sugar Plum to form the tags.

I used one of the deer images from the Avery Elle's North Pole Pals stamp set and colored it in with Chameleon markers. The image is then cut out and attached to the front of the tag. A simple sentiment is formed from the Lawn Fawn's Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set and attached at the bottom of the tag. To finish the tag, a hole is punched at the top and twine is insert. The tag is now ready to be added to the perfect gift!

You can hop on over to the MarkerPop blog to learn more about the markers and supplies used on today's project.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Dear Santa

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! Today we are suppose to reach 90 degrees here in my part of Texas. So I declare today a good day to dream of snow. And the closest I am going to get to that is to work with some of Pink & Main's winter stamp sets!

For today's project, I am working with Santa Mail and Oh, Deer stamp sets:

I wanted to create a fun scene using one of the elf images. The image is stamped onto white cardstock. I also stamped the same image onto a masking sheet. The image is cut out of the masking sheet and placed on top of the image on the cardstock. I used a distress ink to create the sky coloring. Once I was done, I peeled the masking piece off. The image is colored in using colored pencils. I also added a snowy hill below the image, using the Scalloped Waves dies. I also used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die to cut out the scene. The scene is attached to a kraft card base. I also added a few clouds to add more detail to the scene. To fill in the empty space, I used the snowflakes from the Oh, Deer stamp set and stamped around the scene. A simple sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great one!

Thinking of You - Polar Bears

Hello, everyone! It is Jessi here with you today. I am excited to share with you the card I created using the super fun, Polar Bear stamp set from Poppystamps. If you are new to Poppystamps, check out the selection available in the MarkerPop store.

To create this scene card, I started the card base with a variety of blue prints. I attached them onto the front of the card base. Snowy hills are made using white cardstock and Pink & Main's Scalloped Waves border dies. The polar bears are stamped in black ink onto white cardstock. I used a light grey and colorless blender to create the shadows onto the bears. The iceberg image is stamped in gray ink and also shadowed with a gray marker. The simple sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card.
