Card: Keep Swimming with SCACD Stamps

SCACD Stamps - Ocean Eyes - www.markergeek.com

I’ve got a very quick card to share with you today, with a similar message to the Mama Elephant Honey Bunny card I blogged on Friday.

I created this card using an image I coloured quite a while ago, so unfortunately I don’t have any colouring information to share today. There will be a few of these posts, as I have a stack of coloured images to create cards with, some of which I have colouring notes for and some I don’t. I hope you will enjoy this post anyway, and perhaps take away a little inspiration for your own crafty endeavours!

Card: Pinky Promise It’s Gonna Be Alright with Mama Elephant

Mama Elephant - Honey Bunny Card - www.markergeek.com

This was always going to be a difficult day. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that my Dad passed away last October. Today is the anniversary. 17th October 2013 seems both so far away and also like it happened yesterday. The past year has been a difficult one, bringing lots of challenges to deal with and also many opportunities to move forward. I like to think that Dad would be happy to see us getting on with it and moving forward.

With that in mind, I’m going to share a card I made yesterday and some colouring information I put together to go with it.

Card: Wicked Birthday Wishes Copic Scene Card

Make it Crafty - Haunted House & Mini MonstaBoyz Scene - www.markergeek.com

I’m a firm believer in giving spooky images the opportunity to shine for all sorts of occasions, not just Halloween. Since it was Paul’s birthday this week I decided I’d create a fun spooky scene card for him. I love to create scenes with stamps and as it had been a while since I last created one, this was a lot of fun.

I’ve added a handy Copic Colour Palette at the end of my post for you, showing the markers I used on my scene card.

Step By Step: Fun Halloween Cards & Ghosts with Copics

Waltzing Mouse Stamps - Boo & Friends Halloween Cards - www.markergeek.com

Sometimes (okay, fairly often) I see a stamp set I just cannot resist, and I will admit I am a total sucker for Halloween stamps. Waltzing Mouse Stamps recently released some great Halloween stamp sets, which somehow found their way in to my shopping basket. ;)

I thought it would be fun to do a little mini-tutorial on how I coloured these sweet little ghost stamps with Copic markers for my Halloween cards. You will find it towards the end of this blog post as a pinnable image!

Christmas Card with Tiddly Inks Clear Stamps

Tiddly Inks Clear Stamps - Willow Christmas Fairy - www.markergeek.com

Happy World Card-making Day! I hope you’re managing to sneak in some crafty fun this weekend.

I’ve got a sweet little card to share with you today and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with myself. Why? It’s a Christmas card! I’m not known for being an early bird when it comes to Christmas preparations, but I could not resist colouring up the adorable new Christmas fairy from Tiddly Inks Clear Stamps. I actually have her all stamped up again with one of the accessory stamps from the set, so look out for some more inspiration soon!

Getting Spooky with SCACD Digital Stamps

SCACD Digital - Thaddeus the Vampire - www.markergeek.com

Today I’m sharing a fun card featuring an SCACD Digital Stamps image. I’m also joining in with a group of bloggers including some of the SCACD Design Team, to help showcase some of the fantastic images now available through SCACD Digital. We’re focusing on Autumn/Fall images and the spooktacular! Some people have even taken a non-spooky digital stamp and given it a creepy twist, so beware. ;)

You can find the entire range of digital stamps available over in the SCACD Digital by Carmen Medlin section at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design.

To check out all the creative fun on display today, grab a free digital stamp and be in with a chance at winning a prize, pop on over to the SCACD Store Blog for the full details and links to other designers.

One Last Summer Card with The Greeting Farm

Miss Anya Summer - The Greeting Farm - www.markergeek.com

Today’s card isn’t one I’d usually be sharing at the end of September, but the weather here is still warm and sunny (it’s warmer than it was in early August). So although the sentiment says “hello” you can consider this my little farewell to Summer with The Greeting Farm’s Miss Anya Summer.

Out Of This World – SCACD Digital Stamps

Out of This World with SCACD Digital - www.markergeek.com

Happy Friday! I promised I’d be back with a card to share and here I am, albeit somewhat later than I intended but what’s new? ;)

The card I have to share today is one I’ve been meaning to put together for what seems like forever. I coloured the digital stamp image back in March, along with some other fantastic “out of this world” digis from SCACD Digital. Since the start of this month (when I sorted out a huge pile of coloured images that need to be made into cards) I have been planning to make this card. Not bad, eh?

Birthday Sunflower

SCACD Digital - Sunflower - www.markergeek.com

You wouldn’t really know it from this blog, but I love flower stamps/images. I have a collection of stamps and digital images because they are perfect to use for family members who wouldn’t necessarily appreciate cute or quirky character cards. I promise that I’ll try and share a few more floral and other non-character cards here from time to time, in amongst all the character cards!

My Mum’s birthday was on Sunday, so when Susana from SCACD Stamps sent me the new Sunflower digital image from the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital stamps range I knew exactly what to do with it! Mum is a keen gardener and loves sunflowers, so this was perfect. I kept the background simple and bright to create a cheery card.

You’re Awesome – A Fun TGF Wild Sprout Card!

The Greeting Farm - Wild Sprouts Wild Child - www.markergeek.com

Today I’m sharing another card created with the adorable Wild Sprouts Wild Child set from The Greeting Farm.  You can see my previous card by scrolling down to the next post or clicking HERE.

This card uses the other character in the set. LOVE him! I think he might be my favourite of the pair, although that could easily change next time I colour them up. ;)
