Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop - Stampin' Up!'s Markers

Fourteen of the month so you know what that means! It's team blog and Insta hop day! This month we are highlighting either Stampin' Write Markers or Stampin' Blends Markers.

I chose to do an oldie but good technique with my Stampin' Write Markers and to also feature some of the NEW products available released March 5th in the Online Exclusives.

The trick here with the markers is to colour with them on one of your acrylic blocks, use your spritzer to get it wet and then "stamp" with the block on watercolour paper. 

Once "stamped", you usually have to gently blot off a bit of the extra water and then I usually use my heat tool to dry the area.

After that, you can stamp all over it as you like!

For this design, I focused on the 2022-2024 In-Colours which are soon to retire. 

Once dried, I die cut using my Deckled Rectangle Dies (cut twice with a wide die to get a narrow shape). 

I then stamped in Versamark and used clear Embossing Powder to add a bit of shiny message to the strip.

I worked with the NEW bundle Happy Little Things as well as the NEW Fun Patterns embossing folders.  These are folders meant to fit in the mini cut and emboss machine but what I found, at least with the folder I used, you can overlap the pattern perfectly in order to emboss a larger piece of cardstock (and you don't even get a line down your page!)

To finish off the design, I stamped the outline stamp for the words in Starry Sky and then did the fill in versamark and white embossing powder. 

I used one of the 2 dies included in the bundle to create the little banners which I think adds a super fun feel to the card. 

And last but not least, the In Colour Pearls!

Drop a comment, I'd love to know what you think.
