Finished card The Daily Marker Challenge

As promised yesterday hereby the finished card.
After stamping and colouring I die cut the word “hoera”, which is Dutch for hooray,
with my Marianne Design Alphabet dies out of the panel. I took care not to lose the little inner parts of the letters, because I have to put them back when I place my stacked letters on the card.
Then I die cut the same letters each 3 times out of cardstock and glued them on
top of each other. The letters from the panel at the top of the stack.
I glued my panel on the blue metallic base card. After this I glued the stacked letters in the right place on the card and also the little inner parts from the panel letters.
I thought the card wasn’t finished but I couldn’t find anything that fitted with the little images.
After looking around and thinking I realized that my gel pens would offer a solution.
I have different kinds and the 3D Rollers where the answer. I used the same colours as I used with my Zig markers and made an all-over pattern of tree little dots.
As with my stamps, I also let the dots run off the paper so that it appears as the pattern continues.
And that finished my card, it’s a simple but cheerful card for a birthday.

Last day The Daily Marker Challenge

It’s the last day of The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge and I am glad that I finished my colouring on time.
I stamped a background with several little stamps from a Forever Friends stamp set, to make a birthday card. I coloured them with my Zig markers.
I will finish it by die cutting “hoera” (Dutch for hooray) out of the panel and will adhere it to a blue basecard.
I hope to do that this weekend and to post it on Sunday evening.

I want to thank Kathy Racoosin, The Daily Marker, for organize this great event for the 12th time and I hope that she will do it again later in the year.
I also want to thank the Good Will Ambassadors for all their work and support.

The Daily Marker Challenge Day 22

I have finished my Kit and Clowder Juli 2018 colouring class that I was started for  The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge. It was a lot of work but with almost every day a bit of colouring it was finished quicker than I thought it would be. And I am so happy with the result, it’s always great to see something grow bit by bit under your hands and see it becomes as you had in mind.
For me the challenge was drawing in some parts of this image, the rock wall and the shrubbery/foliage. This isn’t necessary because there is also a image where it’s already drawn in. Also the colouring of the black suit, colouring something black isn’t that easy as it seems to be.
The used materials are under the image and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

The Daily Marker Challenge Day 8

For The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge I am colouring with my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.
Although colouring with pencils is time-consuming I always have fun doing it.
Instead of using cardstock with a tooth, what makes it easier to layer the colour and blend, I am colouring on smooth cardstock. I wanted to give this a try and I like it. You have to be careful with your pressure. Best is very light, hold the pencil more on the end of it than by the point and in such angel that you won’t colour with only the point. This way it isn’t difficult to layer.


I hope to find time next week to finish this image.
For those who think that I forgot the space behind and close to the girl, she is getting a veil and then it’s easier to draw and colour that first.
Used materials are under the picture.

The Daily Marker Challenge Day 1

I am participating The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge, every time it is a lot of fun!
I will not post every little bit of colouring I do, most of the time I colour for about 10 – 30 minutes.
I will colour the image you can see here below with my Polychromos pencils. Colouring with pencils take time, that’s why I won’t show every day what I have done.
The image is from Tiddlyinks and I am follow a Kit and Clowder Class from July 2018 to colour.

Pop-Up Flowers

The first week of January Rina Krupsky was a guest designer by Jennifer McGuire.
When I saw the card she was making, I knew immediately that this should be the card for a friend’s birthday.
You can find the link to the post with the video under this text.
There be a few blurs on the photo’s, that’s done because of privacy reasons.

I also knew that I wanted to make the card with the Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 Living Coral.
I looked true my paper stash for paper in that colour scheme. I found it in the gorgeous background papers by Nellie Snellen.
From these paper I cut 7 pieces of 4”x 4”.
Then I used a Crealies stamp and Distress Oxide to stamp the heart of the flower. I used my TH Stamping Platform  that way I only have to position my stamp once and can stamp all the papers one after the other . Afterwards I was so glad I did this because after the first few papers where dry I noticed that I had to stamp them again to make them darker.  I even put some Distress Oxide in the middle of the heart with a small brush to darken it. I then put the papers aside to dry well.

I couldn’t find any stamp that would fit what I had in mind, so I made them myself.
I used Eva foam, a thin craft foam,  a die and double sided adhesive sheets. I adhere a piece of adhesive sheet on one side of the foam, then I die cut it on the other side .
I removed the other layer of  protective sheet from the foam so I could stick the die cut on to a piece of acetate. By trying the stamp I noticed that the foam was much too thin.
I decided to cut two new layers, the same way I did before ( two layers at once won’t work). I cleaned the foam stamp that I already tried out with a baby wipe. Which was easy because I used Distress Ink.
I then adhered both layers on top of the first one and my new stamp was ready.
Because I also like to have a opposite stamp, I repeated the process as before with the difference that I now had the side where I put the adhesive sheet on the foam at the upper side when I die cut.
To stamp you can adhere your acetate to a acrylic block with some painters tape.
After you used the stamp, you can clean it and use it again later. Always try before you use it with another colour if the stamp is really clean.

stempel 1

I started my front panel ( 3.9 “x 5.6”) with white Neenah cardstock, a Joy Crafts stencil and Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral. I put the stencil down on the paper in different angles with space in between, because I didn’t want a full background. The Oxide gave a soft look so I could stamp over it with my home made stamps and Distress Ink Abandoned Coral, what is a more bright ink but the same colour.
Used a Marianne Design stamp for the Sentiment, it’s Dutch for Have a nice day.
Put  this a side to dry.

In the mean while I cut a base card (folded 4.1 “x 5.8”) from Turquoise glossy cardstock on the outside and white on the inside. I used the same Joy Craft stencil inside but this time with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers.
Stamp the sentiment in the upper corner, this is Dutch for Congratulations.
Put this also aside.

Time to make the flower bouquet, I folded, cut and glued the square papers I made before, as shown in the video by Rina.
And glued the bouquet into the inside of the base card.

Glued the front panel to to base card and finishing the card off with pearls and sequins in a matching tint. And that completed the card.

But I was enjoying myself so much I wanted to make more. So I decided to stencil also the envelop to match the card. I did this with the Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral and after drying I put some Distress Glaze over it to seal the ink. I don’t want rain to ruin my envelope and so I know that will not happen now.
