Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen ( Video ) ( Blending with water for Great Backgrounds )

Update:  The Explore, Adventure, and Memories card was shown on HSN.

I love Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens, the pens are great for coloring, making backgrounds for your cards ( which I will be demonstrating ), or just adding a glittery sparkle to your crafts.  These are probably the most used items in my craft room.  They are used on most every card I do.  Money well spent and if you are interested remember HSN will have its Crafting Event on July 11 2017, so make sure to tune in, they may have a bundle deal??????

This is done with a Splatter technique.  Pick your colors and water color paper, make sure the ink is moving down into the brush and splatter the paper with as many colors as you like.  Caution, make sure you have paper towels around to catch the extra splatter that goes off of the card.  Grab a spray bottle of water and start to spray the paper, the more you spray the more blending you will get.  The balloon stamp is from Sheena Time Traveler Collection.
  See below, I have posted a video .

The same technique was done with this card, the only difference is I did not spray as much water onto the card, which gives it a confetti look, so you can control the look.  The thing I love the most about this technique is you can make any paper match with what any accessories you maybe using. No hunting for matching paper.   I used  Spectrum Aqua water color paper.  Enjoy the Video, and as always, if you have any questions please let me know.  Happy Crafting!!!!!

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

Happy Thanksgiving ( A&M Memories ) November 11, 2017

Hi everyone and welcome back, I am Lisa, I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Turkey Day?  I have made this wonderful Happy Thanksgiving Card for your enjoyment.

With this card I used my Cricut Explore Air 2.  It is very easy to upload your digital stamps into the Cricut This is the layout that I created for this card.  I will give you a little hint, it is easier to color your  digital image before you cut it with the Cricut.  I colored the Pilgrim with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers I also used some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers for her hair, eyes, and the Turkey as you can see below. I have choosen this dark yellow card stock for the background to the leaf card stock. I used Foam Tape to hold all the layers together.  I had some fall ribbon and cord that I added to the leaf layer and wrapped it around the back so you could not see the ends.  With the cord I put a little  Open knot for decoration.

"Hebrews" Coffee Card ( Skipping Stones Design ) Oct 16th Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Skipping Stones Design's October blog hop.  For my card I have decided to use the Coffee stamp #2.  I colored the coffee cup with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers.  This is a Digi stamp so after printing I did wait 24hr before coloring with the Alcohol markers to make sure the ink is completely dry, so I do not have any mixing of the printer ink with the alcohol marker colors.  I had a great time creating this card.  Please scroll down for pictures, supplies (  link's ),  a how toooooo, and a tutorial at the end.  Make sure you visit the links below to see other cards made by Skipping Stones Design Team.  Please make sure to leave a comments on everyones creations, let them know how much you like the designs they have created.
