Marker Club cards

These are the cards we made for my Marker Club. We've been learning all kinds of great ways to use our markers, besides the obvious-color in an image! Does this first card look familiar? It's from a Bloggers Challenge not too long ago! We made the pearl from the Pretties Kit with a Sage Shadow marker and clear emboss powder. It's not hard to do, but a little awkward making the pearl stay put while you heat the embossing powder! We used the Color Spritzer Tool on the Sage Shadow card stock on the top of the card, also.

The ribbon on this card is the satin ribbon from the Occasions Mini. We colored it with an Always Artichoke marker. It dried really fast! To make the stripes in the flower, we inked up the flower with Regal Rose (just to make sure the entire background was covered). Then we took a Regal Rose marker and dipped the tip in Rose Red ink from a reinker. Then when you use the side of the marker it makes the stripes! We ran the side of the marker across the flower stamp and stamped it on the card stock. Just make sure you scribble your marker on scrap paper after you use the reinker.

For this first card, we used the Color Spritzer Tool. First we spritzed Chocolate Chip and More Mustard on the rectangular piece of Whisper White. Then we inked up the bird with More Mustard and used the Color Spritzer Tool to add Chocolate Chip to the bird stamp. And then we stamped it on the card stock.

If you want to learn more about joining a Marker Club (or any other kind of Club), just let me know!
