MarkerPOP Twinkle, Twinkle Challenge

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Did you see that a new challenge has started over on the MarkerPOP blog? I hope you stop by and find out the details of the challenge. Below is the inspiration photo for the challenge:

I paired up a few different companies to create this card:

I started with the background by blending a few distress inks to create the scenery.  I used a few browns and yellows to create the ground and a few different blues to do the sky. The stars are cut out using a star dies. I also used a scalloped rectangle die to create the panel.

The cactus stamp was inked with two different shades of green. The images are stamped and cut out. The cacti are attached to the scenery panel.  The sentiment is done with white ink and embossing powder. The sentiment is cut out of cardstock.

I hope you are inspired to join us in the MarkerPOP challenge! Hop on over to join in!

Thank you for stopping by!

Sunny Studios - Fluttering By

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I know that most of the US is experience some winter weather, but down here along the Texas Gulf Coast, we are having Spring weather. The highs the last few days have been 80 degrees! So the bugs and little critters are coming out because they as confused as we are as to what season it actually is!

Did you see that the newest Sunny Studios release arrived in the  MarkerPOP store today? Stop over to the Sunny Studios section of the store to see the products.  I brought out one of the older Sunny Studios stamp sets, Backyard Bugs, for today's card.

I stamped the images onto white cardstock and colored in with variety of Chameleon markers. The image are cut out and set aside. I used Pink & Main's Scalloped Waves to create the hilly background. The colored images are added to the scene. The house and snail are simply attach to the card.

For the butterfly, I only put tape down the center of the back. I attached the butterfly to the card and bent the winged up for some dimension to the card. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock. The sentiment is tucked underneath the edge of the butterfly.

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

Once again, the new Sunny Studios release is now available in the MarkerPOP store! We hope that you stop by and check it out!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Joy Clair Treasure Bible Page

Hello, Joy Clair friends! It is my day on the Joy Clair blog! Are you enjoying the newest Joy Clair stamps? I am! So many possibilities from the different sets!

Today, I am sharing one of my latest Bible pages using the Color by Faith's Treasures stamp set:

I used a variety of distress inks to turn the Bible page into a treasure map. The stamps are done in brown ink and colored in with colored pencils. I also used the Bible Planner stamp set to stamp the verse next to the X.

It is hard to photograph, but I added embossing powder to the jewel on the page. Once I hit it with the heat gun, the jewels now have a pretty shimmer to them.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

Welcome to the Joy Clair January Release Blog Hop!

All the stamps from this release will be on sale starting today.

Today I am showing off the new Color by Faith's Joyful Noise:

With the guitar image being so big, I thought it would be fun to paper piece the image into the Bible. I stamped the image onto a pretty print and cut the image out. I cut out a green printed paper and attached to the margin of the Bible. On top of the green paper, I added a pink strip. The guitar image is then attached to the page. I stamped the verses from the Joyful Noise set at the top of the page.  Paper piecing makes for a quick and simple page and I don't have to test my coloring skills!!!

All You Need is Love

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! It feels great to get back to posting. I enjoyed the little break, but ready to get back! With New Year's behind us, the next big holiday is Valentine's. Lots of gorgeous Valentine's projects are being released! Make sure to check in to see all the new products arriving in the MarkerPOP store!

Today, I am working with a super adorable Memory Box stamp set, Love Grows. This set is perfect for Valentine's projects and even gardening projects.

To start of this card, I stamped a variety of images from the Love Grows set randomly on the card front. I started with the larger images and worked my way to the smaller stamps to fill in the white spaces.

I stamped a few images onto a separate white sheet. The images are colored in with a variety of Chameleon markers. The images are cut out and attached individual onto the sentiment strip of cardstock.

This is such a simple card to recreate! I love how the colored images really pop against the black and white background!

Please stop by the MarkerPOP blog to see the list of supplies used to create this card!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

DCWV Farewell

Hello, DCWV friends! It is Jessi here from the Social Media Design Team. I am here today with a sad announcement. Today's post will be may last as a design team member. It has been an amazing two years, but the time has come to make a change. I want to send a HUGE thank you to Megan and DCWV. You have made this such an awesome team to be a part of and a company to work to with.

I always believe there is a reason for everything! I am thankful for all the interactions I have made with people I normally would not have crossed paths with. There are truly miracles all over the place! With that being said, I decided to make a Bible page using DCWV Rub On Transfers.

This page was the fastest page I have every created before. It is also the first time I successfully worked with rub-ons. In the past, the rub-ons would not transfer completely. DCWV transfer with such ease and no effort! Stick them on the paper, firmly press and peal.

Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for allowing me to chance to be part of DCWV!
