Stamping Bella - Mo Manning Snow Pals Card & Video - www.markergeek.com

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!

Thinking of You

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a fantastic weekend.

You may have seen my recent Basic Step by Step on Colouring with Alcohol Markers post, in which I showed how I coloured Sweet Thinkin’ Mae from Some Odd Girl Stamps.  Well, she finally made it on to a card!  So, just a brief post today sharing the card.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  The sentiment comes with the set.

The designer papers are from the Echo Park Country Drive 6×6 pad.

And here are the marker colour details!

Make a Splash!

As I mentioned in my recent TGF Baby Cards & Custom Tape post, I love the various clear stamp sets available at the moment, and the variety of possibilities for using the stamps to create both involved, detailed cards and also quick, easy cards.

Some of my favourite sets come from the Some Odd Girl Stamps range.  It’s no secret that I love the style of Kristy’s images, and the sets she puts together are so much fun.

Under the Sea Mae is a recent favourite set of mine – gorgeous mermaid and adorable animals.  Perfect!  I also love Beach Day Buddies, and so I decided to mix and match to create some fun cards.

Super cute, no?  And a great way to use up some of those scraps of paper!

I love the way that you can use clear sentiments, gently shaping them on your acrylic block so that they follow a curve.

I coloured all images with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink).
