Card & Video: Make it Crafty Phoebe & Reds

Make it Crafty Phoebe's Christmas Wish Copic Marker Colour Palette - ww.markergeek.com My friend Zoe from Make it Crafty recently gave away a gorgeous Christmas digi free to newsletter subscribers. I think she may still be available, so pop on over to the Make it Crafty FB page to check out the details and sign up (it is worth subscribing on Facebook and via the newsletter so you don’t miss the freebies that Zoe generously gives away from time to time)!

As soon as I saw Phoebe’s Christmas Wish I knew I wanted to create a very simple Christmas card with her cropped to one side. Sometimes I puzzle for ages over how I want to use an image, sometimes I just know.

Keep reading to see the card and for some discussion about Copic reds, a marker palette and speed colouring video. Phew, you may want to grab a tea/coffee first! ;)

Card & Colouring Video: Make it Crafty Fiery Baby Dragon

Make it Crafty Fiery Baby Dragon Card & Video - www.markergeek.com

It has been a while, but finally I have found the motivation/energy to deal with digging out and setting up my video camera! Last weekend I decided to play and shoot a little video for you which I’m sharing in today’s post. The video is a little under ten minutes long and there is no commentary, just colouring. I will be sharing more videos in future, so if you enjoy watching them make sure you subscribe!

I hope you’ll enjoy taking a little glimpse at how I coloured the sweet little dragon image from Make it Crafty. I have a card and Copic Marker Colour Palette to share as well, so read on for the fun stuff!

Tiddly Inks - Beary Sweet Birthday Card - www.markergeek.com

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!

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

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!

Happy Halloween! If you celebrate I hope you have a spooktacular time, and if you don’t I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Pumpkins - Copic & Touch Twin Marker Combos - www.markergeek.com

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

I have created two versions of a card design to share with you for Halloween, using the Tiddly Inks Bewitching clear stamp set and two different brands of alcohol based markers. I will be sharing both cards tomorrow along with full colour palettes for both Copic and ShinHan Touch Twin markers. For now, I thought this post might be useful for those of you still having your own fun with Halloween/autumn themed images. Read on for pinnable pumpkin marker combo info!

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).

Step By Step: Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Dragon Queen No Line Colouring

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Dragon Queen - www.markergeek.com

Today I’m returning to an old love – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! I have been completely smitten with their recent releases and particularly the stamp I used on today’s card. Annie Rodrigue is a firm favourite of mine, and I love her darker illustrations the best.

I decided to take some progress photos while colouring Dragon Queen, to illustrate my colouring process when working on an image using the “No Line Colouring” technique. I’ve put together a step by step guide which you will find below, along with the marker colour palette. I hope that you find these resources useful in your own colouring adventures. If you like them, let me know and I will do my best to bring you more in future.

NOTE: this blog post contains some large images.

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!
