MarkerPop Challenge #135


There's still time to join us over on the MarkerPop Facebook page for our Monthly Challenge! This month it's a Spring Themed Color Challenge and we have a $20 Gift Certificate to the store up for grabs. 


Create a project featuring at least of three of the colors pictured above and a neutral of your choice. You may use any brand of products you have in your stash but we ask that you use a coloring medium we carry in the store. 

I created a project using the Adorable new Therefore I am set and coordinating dies from WaffleFlower Crafts. 


I stamped the image onto some Bristol smooth paper and die cut the piece with the Stitched Rectangle from the MFT Blueprints #27. I colored the image in with Distress Ink Markers and an Aqua Brush. I used the following Distress Ink colors: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn, Hickory Smoke and Vintage Photo. I adhered the image panel to a Light Blue card base. I wanted a little extra pink so I added some Sequins from Neat and Tangled.


The challenge will be open until Monday, April 30th at 11pm est. and the Winner will be announced on May 2nd on our Facebook page.  Link up your project in the Challenge #135 photo album in our FB Group here or on the post on our Facebook page here

There's still time to play with YNS Challenge #87


Happy Thursday everyone.. There are still a few hours left to join us for Challenge #87 over on the Your Next Stamp Blog. We have a great Sketch and Color Combo to choose from or you can mix them up like I did. 

 

I used the new Unicorns Rock Stamp and die set along with the Puffy Cloud die set


I created a Distress Ink background with some Peackcock Feathers ink and then I adhered the panel to an A2 size top folding card base. I stamped all of the images onto some X-Press it blending cardstock using YNS Black Olive ink, then I colored them in with Copics coordinating with the challenge colors. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I die cut several clouds using the Puffy Clouds die set and added some color with a Copic marker. I arranged them onto the background following the sketch. 


I adhered the unicorn images over the clouds and stamped a sentiment onto a Banner I die cut from the Cool Tags Three Die set using Black Olive Ink. I wanted a little sparkle so I added some Enchanted Garden Sparkly gumdrops and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in clear to parts of the images. 

Head over to the YNS Blog for more inspiration from the team. The linky will close tonight Thursday at 12am EST. So be sure to join in the Fun for a chance to Win a $15 GC to the store! We can't wait to see what you create!

It's our final day of the April Release sneaks and today we are sharing Little Lilies and April Showers. All of the new products will be available in the store tomorrow Friday the 20th!! 


My first card features the new April Showers stamp set. I created an A2 sized card base and added some Rainbow paper for a background. Then I die cut a White panel using the Frames and Flags die set. I stamped the sentiment in Black ink and then again on some scrap paper in several Rainbow colors. I cut out each word and adhered it to the Black sentiment. I colored in the Butterflies and added some  Nuvo Clear Glitter Drops for a bit of sparkle. This set has additional fun Spring images you can add as well. 


My second card features the Little Lilies Stamp set, this set also has a coordinating die set. I stamped the lily image onto some watercolor paper and using distress ink. Then I colored the image in with some additional Distress Ink and an Aqua brush. Once it was dry I added some splatters and stamped the sentiment in a coordinating Grey ink. I trimmed a 1/4" off the sides and adhered the panel to a Grey card base. This was my first attempt at no line watercolor, not too shabby!! lol

Newton's Nook April Release Day 3!!



It's day three of the April Release from Newton's Nook Designs and today we are introducing Umbrella Pals and it's coordinating dies. 


This is a Fun set full of fun umbrella characters sure to make anyone smile!! It created a background on some Distress Watercolor Paper with some Salty Ocean Distress ink and then I stamped the raindrops from the Umbrella Pals set using the same Salty Ocean Ink. I set the panel aside to dry. 


I stamped all the umbrellas onto some X-Press It blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and I adhered them to the card front with some foam adhesive. I die cut a banner from the Frames and Flags Die set and stamped the sentiment and trimmed it to fit along the edge of the card. This is such a Fun set!!!

Newton's Nook April Release Day 2!!



It's Day two of the April Release sneaks from Newton's Nook Designs and today we are introducing the new Floral Lace Stencil and Wedding Frills Stamp and Coordinating Die set. 


I created two cards for today... On my first card, I used the Floral Lace stencil on the background with some Grey Distress Ink over a Vanilla cardstock base. Then I die cut a Coral panel and a Vanilla panel using the Frames and Flags Banner die set. I stamped the images onto the Vanilla panel with Grey and Coral inks. Then I adhered the panels to the card front off centered. I die cut some of the flowers and popped them up with foam adhesive for dimension. 


I went Brighter with my second card... I created a Sugar Plum card base and then I added some White Embossing paste with the Floral Lace stencil. You want to apply the paste a little thicker so it appears White against a darker Background. I set that aside to dry and die cut another piece of the Sugar Plum cardstock using the Wavy die in the Land Borders die set. I stamped the floral image onto the panel using coordinating ink. Then I adhered it to the card front. 

I die cut the word Congrats using the new Essential Alphabethbet set we released yesterday and adhered that following the curved edge. I die cut a banner from the Frames and Flags Die set and stamped the sentiment using the same Purple ink. I die cut another flower and adhered it with some foam tape.

Newton's Nook Designs April Release!!



Happy Monday everyone.. are you ready for a week of sneaks into the April Release from Newton's Nook? Today we are introducing... Newton's Graduation and coordinating die. We also have a brand new stand-alone Essentials Alphabet Die set


I love this fun stamp set... It's perfect for graduation cards for any age.  I created a White card base and then I added some Fun Doodlebug pattern papers. I stamped Newton onto some X-Press it blending cardstock and colored him in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. 


I used the Land borders and the Frames and Flags Banner die sets to die cut my pattern papers and banner. On the Black circle, I added some White ink to create a chalkboard effect but keep it subtle.
