Stamping Techniques 101 – Colouring with Markers

Good Morning … welcome to another Stamping Techniques Blog Tour – this month we are Colouring with Markers

The Stampin’ Write Markers are a wonderful addition to your craft supply.  They are affordable, come in all the Stampin’ Up! colours and easy to store!

Many Marvellous Markers - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Our Markers come in family packs or you can purchase the Many Marvellous Markers which has all the regular colours and room for the In Color Marker sets as well!  It’s designed so your markers are stored correctly – horizontally.

Colouring with Markers

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new At Home with You Stamp set ..

At Home with You from Stampin' Up!

This is such a wonderful Stamp Set and so versatile for many occasions and themes.  Now I know it’s only June but thought it’s never too early to start Christmas Cards is it?  I mean it’s only 28 weeks (or 200 days) until Christmas!

Colouring with Markers by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

How did she do that … 

  1. Stamp images in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock
  2. Colour images with your Stampin’ Write Markers.  Start with lighter colours and work to darker colours.  Go back over with the lighter colours to blend.
  3. Use your Blender Pen to take colour from your Sahara Sand Marker and colour around the base of your images for grounding.
  4. Assemble card and embellish.

Marker Tips & Know How

  • Our Stampin’ Write Markers come in all the Stampin’ Up! colours except whisper white and very vanilla
  • Odourless, Water-Based Dye Ink
  • always store your Markers horizontally to ensure even distribution of inks between ends.
  • when colouring with markers direct to paper start with the lighter colours first and build up with darker and other colours.
  • Markers are dual tipped – flexible brush tip and 0.5mm fine tip
  • Use the Brush tip like a ‘brush’ rather then a regular marker
  • Coordinates perfectly with Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks and Cardstock

Now let’s check out what the rest of the Stamping Techniques 101 Design Team have created for you today ..

Memory Keeping with Memories and More by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Memory Keeping with Memories and More by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This layout out came together very quickly using the Memories and More Color Theory  Pack.   This pack is great for it’s cards and it has  cards for all the seasons so it will be great for any time of the year you want to remember.

Memories and More Overlays by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

The overlays are not only good for photo’s  but you can pop them over a Journal Card to make them ‘pop’ too!

Memories and More is for more than just Memory Keeping – it’s for cards too ..

Memories and More Cards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This card is super quick and easy to put together.  It’s simply one of the 4×6 cards trimmed and layered onto cardstockand added a ribbon and a small stamped sentiment from Colourful Seasons Stamp Set.

This card was cased from the sample in the Catalogue.  The only pieces not from the Card Pack are the Crumb Cake Base Card and the Linen Thread.  Even the words come from the Sticker Sheets included in the Card Pack.

Wood Words Bundle

Now when I first looked at this bundle I thought ‘yeah it’s nice but not sure how much I’ll use it‘.  Well … I thought that crate would be handy for projects so thought why not!  Well .. I’ve used it so much for cards and different projects it’s now become one of my favourites!

Wood Words Cards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

How lovely are these cards?  So quick and easy to do too!

Wood Words in Berry Burst by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one is done in Berry Burst.  This colour was everyone’s favourite at my Catalogue Launch last weekend.

Wood Words in Flirty Flamingo by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love Flirty Flamingo and love that flower stamp from the Wood Words Stamp Set!  I have a feeling I might wear that stamp out if it’s possible!

Wood Words in Lemon Lime Twist by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Lemon Lime Twist.  Now this wasnt a colour I liked at all but it’s so good to make cards pop and it was affectionately renamed on the weekend to Lemon Lime Bitters!  I think you’ll be seeing this colour more and more over the next 12 months.

Wood Words in Peekaboo Peach by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Ahh Peekaboo Peach! Who doesnt like this colour?  The roosters have all been cut out with the framelits.  Behind each Rooster is the lovely Copper Trim which you can stretch out to make a web/wire type embellishment.  Behind the Copper Trim is a log cut out from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

Oh Hello Oh So Eclectic

Good Afternoon … it’s been another chilly day here today in Sydney so the best thing to do is to stay inside and stamp!  Today I’ve made this sweet card using Oh So Eclectic  and some of the new 2017-2019 In Colors from the new Annual Catalogue.

Oh So Eclectic

Oh Hello Friend using Oh So Eclectic by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I stamped the images onto Thick Whisper White then cut them out with one of the Layering Square framelits.  I then cut a Lemon-Lime Twist layer slightly bigger to pop behind it.

I was originally going to put the tiles in a row but I think I like the staggered look better.  It’s just a little bit different.

The colours I’ve used today are …

Black Magic Technique

Good Evening.  Well it sure has been a chilly one here today. So the best thing to do on days like this is to stay inside, drink coffee and make some cards!  Today I have a card I made for the Technique Zone Design Team using the Black Magic Technique Technique Zone Design Team Member Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

The Technique Zone is a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who create and share Technique Tutorials with each other. We can then share them with our customers and teams!  I was stoked to be invited at its inception by my friend Lee Conrey.

Black Magic Technique

Black Magic Technique Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

This technique is lots of fun and all you need is just a few supplies that you already probably have in your supply.

This Technique Zone Class is now available from my Classes To Go store. The beauty of this group is that it benefits you! When you purchase the class you’ll receive  tutorials from different Demonstrators for this one technique – pretty cool huh?

I’m looking forward to bringing you more Tutorials and playing with more Techniques. Especially with all the new awesome stamps and products coming in the new Annual Catalogue starting 1st June.

ESAD Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ESAD Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop!

I love a new Catalogue and love sharing some sneak peeks with you and how cool I have some friends from ESAD to share some of theirs too!

So I deliberated with what to share with you today and opted to share another project from my On Stage Presentation recently in Sydney.  I had the pleasure of sharing the gorgeous Delightful Daisy Product Suite.

Delightful Daisy Notecard Box

Delightful Daisy Notecards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator Australia

This sweet box is super easy to make and holds 5 little notecards and envelopes so makes the perfect gift for any occasion.

This set is a little different than what I normally do as I really wanted these cards to spotlight the gorgeous papers from the the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper Pack ..

Delightful Daisy Notecards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator Australia

Each card has the Linen Thread wrapped around the patterned paper – a bit like a gift.  The sweet little tag is cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

Of course, we cant send a naked envelope so they all have daisy flowers stamped in a coordinating colour.

This is such a fun project to make and we’ll be making this in class next Saturday.

Now it’s time to head over and see what Kristel had made to share with you today.

Good Afternoon and welcome to another round of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are sharing projects using Retiring Framelits

Now I know we’re having many things retire and if you havent got all you were after you only have one more week to grab them!

Retiring Framelits – Stylish Stems

I’m using one that I love and am a teeny bit sad that it didnt make it into the new Annual Catalogue and thats the Special Reason Bundle …

Special Reason Bundle - Retiring Framelits - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I really do love this bundle as it really is so versatile for many projects.

Here’s what I’ve created for you this week …

Retiring Framelits - Special Reason Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I do love this bundle for the endless number of projects and looks you can get.  This card was quick and easy with the Big Shot and the Stylish Stems Framelits. 

I’ve also managed to combine a few more retiring products on this card …

  • Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper
  • Mint Macaron Card Stock
  • Pink Pirouette Satin Stitched Ribbon
  • Mint Macaron Classic Ink Pad
  • Gold Wink of Stella Brush

Here you see how I’ve used the Gold Wink of Stella Brush.  I’ve used it to add texture to my card by flicking the brush to create my Gold Shimmery splatter. 

I do hope you like my card today and do hope you enjoy visiting the following Latte Girls blogs to see what they’ve created …

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

 

I love making boxed sets of cards and it’s so easy when you use our awesome Stamp Cases!  There’s no scoring and folding of cardstock to make a box! You simply slip in a piece of Designer Series Paper and the box is done.  It’s always nice to decorate that box with a flower and ribbon too!

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Of course our A6 cards fit perfectly into one of these boxes! One will always need a pen handy to write in the card and on the envelopes!

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

My gift set contains 4 cards. Two of each of the above cards plus envelopes.

First we have an Old Olive base with a Pool Party layer and the stamped white layer on top.  I love this set for it’s 2 step stamps and how easy they are to stamp.

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Second we have a Calypso Coral base, Pool Party layer and white for our stamped layer.   With the set being photopolymer it’s super easy to line up to do your 2 step stamping as you can see exactly where you are putting your stamp. Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This whole suite is a must buy from the new Catalogue. The bundle includes the Stamp and Punch its priced for any budget.  The set includes flowers and sentiments so it’s going to be a great set for anyone starting stamping as well those who’ve been stamping for years!
