Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ Series. Today I am going to share with you the Many Marvelous Markers from Stampin’ Up! and some tips and techniques for using them. Here is a short video from Stampin’ Up! showing some fun and easy techniques with markers.
Who knew Breathing, Tapping, and Spritzing were marker techniques!
I used Old Olive and Early Espresso markers to color the tree from Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set. I gave it a good huff of breath and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut out the sentiment using the Layering Ovals Framelits (on sale this week for 25% off). I embossed the background with the Petal Burst embossing folder. I like the way it compliments the leaves from the tree. I added some burlap ribbon and tied the end with linen thread. I used the same “breathing technique” to make the matching envelope.

Simple yet elegant! Beautiful card with a beautiful message! Enjoy your day, Jeanine.
I LOVE your card Jeanie! And one really can learn something new every day! I had never used the markers in the tapping way. Can’t wait to try it!
Love this card! I am a CAS stamper and this is one that is truly CAS with a ton of punch!
Hi Jeanie, loved you K, L & M posts. I don’t know how you do it. It must have taken you months to do this!
Hi Nancy! I teach PreK and I think my brain is wired to think in terms of integrating everything with letters of the alphabet. LOL When I first came up with this thought I sat down and just started writing some possibly ideas and filled the alphabet with multiple ideas (with the exception of a couple “outside the box” ideas). Now, as far as the samples to go with the letters each day, that did take more of an effort. 🙂 It has been so much fun!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by I really enjoy hearing from you and appreciate the feedback!
