The Daily Marker Challenge Day 29 | MFT Lovable Leopards | Copic Markers

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I’d sit down and do a little coloring for The Daily Marker Challenge Day 29 and MFT’s Lovable Leopards using my Copic Markers.

MFT Lovable Leopards colored in with Copic Markers.

I started by stamping all of the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink. Then using some yellow and yellow-red Copic Markers I colored up the images.

Leopard: YR18, YR14, Y23 and Y21
Tree: E29, E27, E25 and E23
Leaves: YG63, YG25 and YG23

MFT Lovable Leopards colored in with Copic Markers.

At some point all of the images I created for The Daily Marker Challenge will be turned into cards but for now I am focusing on the coloring.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Scrapping For Less | FOTM May 2018 Card Kit 4 Cards

Hey everyone,

Today I’m sharing several cards I made using the Scrapping for Less FOTM May 2018 Card Kit called In the Country. Whew! Say that three times fast!

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side

I’m a huge fan of cards kits because I think you get the most bang for your buck and it’s an opportunity to build your stash of goodies.

I’m following the suggested sketch guidelines available at the Scrapping For Less website to create these 4 cards using the 4 collections from the kit.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Country Kitchen by Carta Bella papers and ephemera.

For card one, I’m using collection #1 and following sketch #1 to create this very country vintage card. I am only using the patterned papers and the ephemera from the collection to create this card.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Down on the Farm by Doodlebug papers and ephemera.

I love to create scenes on my cards and the stickers in the kit were an excellent opportunity to do just that. It’s a mini farm inspired scene following sketch # 2 and using the papers from collection # 2.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Scrapping For Less Piggy Picnic stamp set and Tiny Checks by MFT paper pad.

For this card, I used the piggy picnic stamp set from collection # 3 to stamp and Copic color the images to create those adorable piggy’s having a picnic.

Copic color combinations:

Piggy’s: R32, R30, W7 and W5
Basket: E27, E23, YG13, YG11, Y15, R27
Sun: Y19 and Y15

I used the tiny checks patterned papers from collection #3 and followed sketch # 4 to complete this piggy picnic card.

Scrapping For Less May FOTM Card Kit In the Country Side featuring Barnyard by Avery Elle Stamp set and Farm House by American Crafts paper pad.

For my last card, I used collection # 4 and followed sketch # 3 very loosely. I used some dies from my stash to die cut the windows in the patterned paper and add those adorable little chicks in.

Copic color combinations:

Chicks: Y17, Y15, Y11, YR18, YR14, C1 and 0
Grassy hill: G99 and G94
butterfly: R85 and R83

I have created a process video of each card I created and I will have links to all the products I used at the bottom of this post.

On a side note, I am NOT sponsored for this post/video, I have been a subscribing member for almost a year and clearly love the kit enough to share.

Well that’s all for this project, I hope you found it inspiring and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

P.S. I edit all my projects using Pic Monkey, which allows me to crop my images, add effects, adjust exposures, sharpen colors, minor touch up and add my watermark. Click here for more information

My Favorite Things Town Bear ~ Copic Markers ~ Distress Oxide Ink ~ Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

I am again participating in the MFT Sketch Challenge #375 and MFT Color Challenge #89 with this card featuring the adorable bear from the Town Bear stamp set.

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

To begin, I stamped the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and cut them using my ScanNCut 2.

I colored the images with Copic markers with the following color combinations:

Bear – snout: E53,E51 and E50
             nose: E49, E59 and E57
             ears: R11 and E01
             body: E59, E57 and E55
             shirt: YR18, YR07 and YR04
Trees: YG25, YG01, YG17 on the leaves! Tree trunks: E59 and E57
House: Y15, Y13, YR07, YR04, BG07, BG05, BG02 and BG000

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

To create a little scene on the main panel, I used MFT’s Cloud Stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to create the sky and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink to create the hill by blending the ink with an ink blending tool onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.
After completing the ink blending, I die cut the panels using a die from MFT’S Die-Namics Stitched Rectangle Stax set and MFT’S Die-Namics Stitched Scallop Basic Edge 2 Dies for the hill.

My Favorite Things Town Bear stamp colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds Birthday handmade card.

After stamping the sentiment, I added all of the images either directly onto the panel or with a little foam tape for dimension. Working on the card base, I adhered a panel of green gingham from Doodlebug Designs 6×6 Gingham-linen Rainbow Petite Prints paper pad to an A2 sized card base and added the main panel using craft foam. I added a few flower enamel stickers from Doodlebug Design Shape Sprinkles Tiny Flowers to complete this card.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

My Favorite Things Purr-fect Friends ~ Zig Clean Color ~ Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to enjoy spending the time with family and friends. I am enjoying my time off and spending it with family. I was able to sneak away into my craft cave and create a card inspired by current My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

My Favorite Things Pur-fect Friends stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ink smooshing background handmade Valentine card.

To create the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and #82 Purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to ink smoosh onto the paper. I cut the panel down to 4 by 5.25 using MFT’s Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die.
The images were stamped onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using VersaFine ink in Onyx Black and colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Color combinations I used

082 Purple
061 Light Brown
042 Turquoise Green

Originally the bird cage was stamped onto a piece of white paper, however, after cutting it out, I did not like the look. So onto plan B, I pulled out heat resistant acetate and stamped the bird cage image on it.

 My Favorite Things Pur-fect Friends stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ink smooshing background handmade Valentine card.

To put this card together, I used a piece of cream colored cardstock as the base of card, added the watercolor panel and adhered all of my pieces either using Ranger multi medium matte or foam adhesive for some dimension.

This is my entry card for the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals ~ Copic Colored ~ Distress Oxides Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

This weeks’ card is inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge # 82, and the card I made using MFT’s Polar Bear Pals. Personally, I love polar bears and I think they are one of the most majestic wild animals on this earth.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I started by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxides Ink in Salty Ocean to create the background and die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Stax’s.
The various polar bear images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I am still learning to pair my combinations and blending but I think these images did not turn out too bad.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

 

Working on the snow banks, I used a piece of white glittered cardstock and die cut the banks using MFT’s Stitched Basic Edges 2. I adhered those pieces to the card base and added my images with some foam tape for dimension.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

All there was left to do to complete this card was stamp the sentiment and add some falling snow using 3D Puffy paint. In hindsight, I would have chosen a different sentiment and maybe even heat embossed it with white embossing powder. And my falling white snow has now taken on a bluish tint from the background. And lastly, I will be very happy to finish using up the glitter paper, as it flakes terribly. Although I am happy with the design of my card, some components not so much and will note to self for future!

The inspiration for this card is MFT’s Color Challenge # 82

That’s it for me for now, as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Pure Innocence Happy Banner~Copic Colored~Birthday Card~Color Challenge 78

Hey everyone,

Today’s card is inspired by the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge 78, and I made this one for a very special upcoming birthday.

My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Happy Banner colored with Copic Markers in combination with patterned paper handmade birthday card.

I started by stamping my image onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock and colored it using Copic Markers.

Dress/Socks: Y11, Y13, and Y17
Banner/Bow: R22, R24 and R27
Shoes: B34 and B39
Hair: Y21, E33 and E47
Skin: E000, E30, E11 and R20

Working on the card base, I cut a polka dot piece of patterned paper down to 4”x 5.25” and rounded the corners with a punch. I adhered the polka dot panel to a cream colored A2 sized card base.

My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Happy Banner colored with Copic Markers in combination with patterned paper handmade birthday card.

Taking the same cream colored cardstock, I die cut a circle and a frame from blue cardstock attaching them together and adding a piece of fun foam for dimension.  

To complete this card, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using Versamark clear ink and heat embossed it using blue embossing powder.

And that completes the card which I am also entering into the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge Sketch 353.

As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Mermazing ~ Copic Colored ~ Sketch Challenge 347

I finally had a chance to pull out MFT’s Mermazing Stamp set I bought in May to make this week’s card for the MFT Sketch Challenge-Sketch 347.

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I first stamped the mermaid sitting onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and masked her to stamp the rock behind that she would be sitting on. I also stamped two more rocks as individual pieces.

I used Copic markers to color all of my images in the following combinations:

Skin: E50, E51 and E53
Hair: E50, E53, YR21, YR23, E35 and E37
Tail/hair piece/top: BG10 and BG13, I also used tip to tip for the medium shade blend
Rocks: E31, E35 and E37

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I fussy cut all of the images and set them aside for the moment. I wanted a sun set as the background for the little mermaid, and I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, an MFT Radiating Rays Stencil and Distress ink to create it.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park Sweet Summertime paper pad using the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables from Lawn Fawn and adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card base. I took the sun rays background and die cut it using a circle die from Hero Arts Infinity Dies and then cut it in half.

MFT Mermazing stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.  I arranged all of the pieces on top of the patterned paper, added a sentiment from the stamp set and a few enamel dots from Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes Enamel Dots collection to complete this card.

I really like the end result of this card and I’ve got a perfect little girl to give this card to. Until next time thanks for stopping by and always sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Sweet Sloth ~ Birthday card ~ Copic Colored ~ MFT Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone,

I used this cute little sloth to create a card for my entry in MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge-Sketch 346 for this week.

MFT Sweet Sloth birthday card colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I started by stamping all of my images from MFT’s Sweet Sloths stamp set onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. I used both of the clouds, one of the flower images and of course the sweet little sloth.
Using my Copic markers, I colored all of the images using the following combinations:
Sloth and tree: E42, E43, E44 and E47
          In the tree branch, I added more of the E47 for a darker look
Leaves: YG11, YG13 and YG17
Small flowers: C1 and Y19
Large flower: Y19, RV11, RV14 and RV17
Cloud: BG0000 and B00

MFT Sweet Sloth birthday card colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

Next, I did a little ink smooshing using Distress Ink in Twisted Citron onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut it using a stitched circle die. 

Working on the large panel, I used a piece of patterned paper from American Crafts Everyday paper pad collection and a Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies from Pink and Main, which I wrapped a piece of black and white twine and adhered it to a top folding A2 size card base.

MFT Sweet Sloth birthday card colored with Copic markers and patterned paper handmade card.

To complete this card, I layered the circle on top of the panel and arranged all my images using foam squares for some added dimension. I used a sentiment from the stamp set, which I heat embossed onto a piece of black cardstock and white embossing powder. Adding a few pieces of sequence and some shimmer from Wink of Stella glitter pen for a little sparkle finished the card. As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
