In 2012 I created a fun colouring tutorial for Some Odd Girl Stamps featuring their Winter Friends clear stamp set. I thought now would be a good time to repost that information along with some new inspiration. This time I’ve created a card and video featuring one of the new Mo Manning for Stamping Bella stamps.

So, if you’re looking for inspiration on creating beautiful backgrounds for Christmas and other winter cards using your markers keep reading!

Card & Video: Saturated Canary Feather Crown

Saturated Canary - Feather Crown Card & Video - www.markergeek.com

It is no secret that I love colouring hair. It is one of my favourite things to do. That said, I am a little out of practice, so to rectify that I turned to one of my favourite stamp artists for awesome hair: Krista Smith and her fantastic Saturated Canary images.  I need to get back into my hair “groove”, so bear with me, but I filmed the colouring process so you can check out a speed colouring video. I have also provided a Copic Marker Colour Palette in the post, so read on!

I actually created today’s card a couple of weeks ago for our niece’s 4th birthday. She loves pandas, so this image from one of the Tiddly Inks clear stamp sets seemed like the perfect choice for a cute little birthday card.

Read on for the full card, details and a Copic Marker Colour Palette!

Marker Colour Combos: Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah Brunette & Blonde Hair

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star - www.markergeek.com

As promised I’m back today with a couple of cute Christmas cards featuring the brand new Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star stamp that I used on yesterday’s card.

I really wanted to show a couple of different hair colour combos for Savannah today, so I didn’t use the full image. If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while you may also be aware that I do have a fondness for butchering cropping Uptown Girl images. Muahaha! This is a great way to stretch the stamps and get more use out of them, especially at Christmas when colouring a full sized image can be more time consuming than you might like. To see the full Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star image please check out my Merry Christmas with Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah post from yesterday.

Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to launch in to the Christmas cards and crafts! This year I’m more prepared than in previous years, so I will have lots of inspiration to share. I’m not completely done with autumn though, so expect a few autumn cards here and there this month. I’m in no particular hurry for winter. 😉

Today I’ve got a little card to share featuring one of the new releases from Stamping Bella. When Emily showed this Uptown Girl image to me I gasped. Definitely one of my favourites from the release. Along with my card I also have a little card-making tip for you, so keep reading!

Today I’d like to share some different colour combinations I came up with while playing with stamps for my Halloween post tomorrow.

I will be sharing both cards tomorrow along with full colour palettes for both Copic and ShinHan Touch Twin markers.

Card: Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Too Cute To Spook!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Too Cute To Spook 2 - www.markergeek.com

When thumbing through my stamp collection for Halloween images recently I couldn’t quite believe I had neglected this little cutie! She is an older release from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, but I believe she is still available. I had some fun colouring her up and creating a simple but fun card to pop her on.

Step By Step: Halloween Cat from Stamping Bella

Stamping Bella - Hallowen Cat - www.markergeek.com

I’ve got a fun little card to share with you today, featuring one of the new Christine Grove rubber stamps from Stamping Bella. I’ve got a major soft spot for Christine’s images, particularly the animals. They are quirky and definitely make me smile while I’m colouring.

Along with my card I created a very simple guide to colouring a basic lantern glow. This isn’t by any means the only way to do it, but I wanted to show you how easy it is to do, especially if like me you’re adding it as an afterthought to an already coloured image with background (I coloured the image in a hurry and it wasn’t until I started to put the card together that I really considered the little lantern).
