Friday's Tip of the Day

Shading using Markers and Reinkers

Today tip is how to use our markers and reinkers in shading. I don’t know about you, but I always have a hard time with shading. Getting the colors to blend correctly and placing the highlights where they belong. A couple of years ago I ran across this pictorial on how to do this amazing technique!
 This technique made it a lot easier for me.  So to give credit where it belongs I saw this on Jennifer Foley's blog.   Her card was amazing,  I decided to share with you what I had done. Now I also will include step instructions.

So let's get started, first here is my card done, I love the way it came out. This is the easiest shading effect that I have ever done.

Card Stock                            Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Vary Vanilla
Stampin Ink                           Stazon Black, Eary Espresso
Markers                                 Only Orange
Re-Inkers                               Soft Suede
Ribbon                                   Daffodil Delight Stitched(I colored it with Only Orange)
Button                                    Neutrals Designer Button in Early Espresso
Stamp Set                              Blooming in Kindness

Here is how to do it: 
  1. Choose the colors that you want or use the color coach to choose a Dynamic Duo color combination.  
  2. Choose one of  the re-inkers for the dark color, and the marker for the light color.
  3. Squeeze one drop of ink into a color palette or a plastic container or paper plate.
  4. Place the brush tip of the marker into the ink until it absorbs the desired amount of ink that you want. 
  5. When you color an image with the side of your marker, you will get two colors for a shaded affect. 
When you are done to get rid of the re-inker on your marker just color on a scrap piece of paper until the darker color is gone.

I did have to play around with it for a few minutes, but once I got the hang of it I was in love with the results!!!  I also tried some added effect by taking my aqua painter and only orange marker and did additional highlights. This is optional.

 Here what mine looked light before I finished the card.

 That’s it! I hope you like it. It looks like it took a really long time to make, but in reality it only takes about 5 minutes to make, if that!
Adding additional card stock, ribbon and button. All together about 10 minutes. I don't know about you but I like quick cards. I love this technique.

Let me know what you think of it, and if you try it send me a picture and I will post it on my blog.  Just email me at jackielwatson2009@hotmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by,

SU Stars Halloween/Fall Blog Hop

It is that time of year again, where the air is getting cooler and the trees are changing. This month at SU Stars our host Loni Holt and let us choose between Fall or Halloween. I choose Halloween done in a Vintage way. I have made allot of the traditional Halloween cards and wanted to do something different.

If you came from Michele Tinsley, blog  then you are right on track. Wasn't her project just adorable! If you just got here and want to start at the beginning go to  http://www.su-stars.blogspot.com/.

Here is what I came up with. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Card Stock                            Basic Black
Stamping Ink                         Basic Black, Versa Mark
Designer Series Paper          Howlstooth and Scaringbone
Stamp Set                              Toxic Treats
Stamping Markers                 Basic Black
Embossing Folder                 Spider Web
Embossing Powder                Dazzling Diamonds
Brad                                      Antique Brads (Cut out Rose)
Framelits                               Apothecary Accents
Tools                                     Color Spritzer Tool
Bling                                      Rhinestones

The lace, Ribbon came from my scrap box and the spider came from the Halloween Printer's Tray Kit.
I know it is hard to see with the photo I have, but the spiders web is done with Embossing Powder to give it the webby feel. I love the texture of this and overall feel of this card.

Your next stop on the hop will be to visit the very talented  Dawn Hoffman and you can see what she has created for you here.
Thanks for stopping by. I love comments, so be sure to leave one. I hope you too find some time to create something fun for yourself...Enjoy!

Fridays Tip Of the Day

Refilling SU Markers!

I thought I would revisit how to refill our SU markers. I know I need to be reminded every now and then and for our new sister demonstrators it maybe something that they didn't know about.

You can re-ink your Stampin’ Up markers!!!

All you have to do is use a pliers to pull off the larger colored end like I have shown above.
You do have to get a good grip and pull REALLY hard. You will not break them, it goes right
back in and snaps closed when you are done.

When you get the top off this is what the inside tube will look like. You just take your re-inker bottle and put a bunch of drops of ink right in the hole in the center and let it soak in.

Take the tube out fully so you can re-ink both end for the small and large tips. Once you have inked the center, put it back in and pop the marker end right back in, it goes back in with a click. This works great!! It takes a few minutes after you are done for the color to soak back up to the ends but then its just like having a brand new marker again!

This is great for the retired colors if you still use them and did not buy extra markers or just for the colors that you use a lot!!

Thanks Gail for sharing how to do this – it’s great!  I want to credit where it is do,  I found this wonderful post over 2yrs ago and wanted to pass it on.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed today's tip. See you next Friday.

Friday's Tip of the Day

How do you fix the cracking caused when using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder?

I know allot of us have had this problem since the Woodgrain has come out and thanks to Kay Kathoff and Linda Heller there is a way to fix this.

All your cracking issues will be solved when you place a card stock Vellum panel inside your folder. You can adhere it with snail and keep it there permanently. Sounds Great!! Can't wait to try it out.

These two ladies even made a video so we can see the before and after pictures. I posted it to my tab under videos. 

I am going to try this technique on some other embossing folders that I have issues with and will let you know how that works out.

I want to thank Kay and Linda for sharing their great video with all of us.

Until next Friday when I post another great tip!
