Spectrum Noir Deep Blend TriBlend Markers – Baby Yoda Card

Hello Spectrum Noir fans!  I am so excited to share today’s card with you, showcasing the latest Spectrum Noir Deep Blends TriBlend Markers.

I have always loved the Spectrum Noir essential blends so when the deep blends came out, I knew I just had to have it.  TriBlend markers are my favorite markers and the new deep blends did not disappoint!  I love them so much that I wish they would come out with more sets!  They are AMAZING!

Here’s how to make the card:

Stamp the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Black on some Neenah solar white card stock.

 

Color the images in with some Spectrum Noir Deep Blend TriBlend markers. I used earth brown, ice grey, brown grey, burnt orange shades.  I also used the essential blends in vintage blue, golden yellow and citrus green.  For the pink shades, I used the pale pink blends.

Fussy cut the images using precision snips.

Ink blend the background panel using some dye inks and clouds stencil.

Use dies to die-cut the rest of the elements needed to create the scene.

Assemble the card.

Here’s what the card looks like:

I absolutely LOVE the new TriBlend markers!  I cannot stress enough how they changed my ability to color images.  They really do blend like butter!  Here’s a closer look of the card:

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas with Spectrum Noir Water-Reactive Inks

Hello Spectrum Noir fans!   Maria Russell here with you today from the Spectrum Noir tutorial design team.  I am up on the blog sharing this cute Gnome Christmas card, showcasing some SN Harmony Water-Reactive Inks to create my winter background and SN Classique Markers.

 

For my focal image, stencil and die-cuts, I am showcasing the Simon Says Stamp Gnome die, Petite Snow Stencil by Newton’s Nook Designs, Forest Scene Builder Die set and stitched border die.

 

To begin, I die-cut the Gnome with some SN Ultra white Premium Card stock and colored card stock.  I colored the nose with SN TriBlend Markers in Fair Skin Blend and the beard with SN Classique Markers in BG1 and BG2.  I adhered the pieces together with some liquid glue.

 

On an A2-size piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock, I ink-blended my background using some Harmony Water Reactive Inks in Straw Bale.  I the light pink colorwith the SN Water Reactive Ink in Pink Tulip.

 

 

To create a nice gradation of colors, I added the Fuchsia and kept blending back and forth between the colors.

 

I sprayed the ink-blended background with some water and dabbed it with some paper towel to dry.

 

 

To create my snow, I used Newton’s Nook Petite Snow stencil with Deco Foil Metallix Gel in Pearl White.

 

I didn’t add the gel at the bottom of the card since this will be covered by another die-cut.

I die-cut the trees using the Forest Builder die set by Newton’s Nook Designs and the snow hill using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched border die on some white card stock.

 

 

I adhered the trees and the snow hill with some liquid adhesive.

 

I stamped my sentiment with some Finesse Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Black Noir.

 

Before adhering my focal image to  the card, I added some crystal lacquer to the Gnome’s beanie for added texture and dimension.

 

I foam-mounted the Gnome on my card.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I think this card turned out really cute and festive!  Even though it seemed like it takes forever to put it together, it really is such a simple card to make.  Isn’t he super adorable?  I love the winter background using the Harmony Water Reactive inks against the white trees and snow hill.

 

Here’s a closer look:

SPECTember with Spectrum Noir – Cute Companions

 

I am super excited to share today’s post as we start the month with “SPECTember projects” with Spectrum Noir.   For September 3, the prompt is CUTE COMPANIONS.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set by MFT Stamps, the Get Grounded stamp set by The Ink Blot Shop, with the Spectrum Noir original coloring system markers, SN TriBlend markers, along with the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Inks on SN Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock.

 

To begin, I stamped the cute bear holding a heart balloon on SN ultra smooth premium white card stock and colored him in using my SN original coloring system marker in MB1 and MB2.  I colored the balloon with my SN TriBlend marker in Pale Pink blend.

 

To create my scene, I stamped the clouds and stars using SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Sand Storm.  I colored the clouds with my SN original alcohol marker in IB1 and my blender pen.  The stars were colored with my SN Triblend marker in Citrus Blend.

 

I used the Get Grounded stamp set to stamp the grass with some SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Grasshopper.  I also used some blending brushes to add more color to the grass using the same dye ink.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the butterfly and colored him in using my SN Triblend marker in Green Turquoise blend.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I love that Spectrum Noir markers and the Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks just perfectly work so well together.  The Harmony quick dry dye inks are alcohol proof so you can use it with the SN TriBlend, SN original coloring system markers or the new SN Illustrators.  There isn’t going to be any smudging.  Here’s a closer look at my card:

Make a Wish Upon a Star with Spectrum Noir

It’s been awhile since I actually sat down and enjoyed just coloring images.  Today’s card features a lot of my favorite Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, with my new favorite ink pads, the Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye in Oasis, Parakeet and Lagoon.  For my images, I am showcasing the Mama Elephant Wish Upon A Star stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

To begin, I started by stamping my images on SN Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock using my SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Rustic Brown.  I colored my images in combining my original SN coloring system markers and my love, the TriBlend markers. I used IG1, IG2, CT1, CT2, DP1 and SN TriBlend Marker in Pale Pink and True Blue blends.  I also used my blender pen to lighten up the shadows on the clouds.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

 

On another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used a clouds stencil from my stash and my SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Oasis to create the clouds.

 

 

I used a clouds border die to partially die-cut the clouds so I can tuck one of the mini clouds in the card.  I also adhered this colored background on an A2 size card base.   I added the images and adhered them on my card front.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

 

To add more texture and dimension, I stamped the stars randomly all over the card using the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Ink in Parakeet.  This card is really simple but I love how it turned out.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Ink in Lagoon.  Aren’t the bunny images super adorable?   This is also perfect for a “welcome baby” card.  Here’s another look:

 

 

I hope you like my project today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below if you are interested.  Please visit Spectrum Noir for more information about the new Illustrators that have just recently launched in the market.  They are absolutely AMAZING!

Celebrate 4th of July with Spectrum Noir

Hello Spectrum Noir fans! I hope you are having a good week so far! 4th of July is just around the corner and since I am currently overseas, I am celebrating this eventful day a little early by creating this cute card. 

For my project today, I am showcasing some Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers, Spectrum Noir Watermark ink and this cute (limited-edition) digital stamp set by Jessica Lynn Original called 4th of July Brentwood.

To begin, I printed my 4th of July Brentwood digi stamp on some Neenah solar white card stock and fussy-cut the image using my precision scissors.  I colored the image in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers in Brown Grey Blend, True Blue Blend and Dark Red Blend.

On a piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock, I ink-blended some oxide inks using my mini ink blending tools.  I sprayed this with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel to dry.  

I used my Stitched fireworks die and ran it through my Gemini Junior die-cutting machine to create an impression and added texture to my colored background.  I die-cut the hill using a border hill die from my stash and stamped the word “Celebrate” using  Spectrum Noir Watermark ink.  I sprinkled this with white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I adhered this hill on my colored background.

I used foam adhesive to adhere my image on the card and added Diamond stickles all over the background.  I also used glossy accents to add more texture and dimension to the owl and the stars.  Here’s my card:

Lastly, I used my white gel pen and added dots to make them look like stars.  I really LOVE using my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers when I’m coloring my images.   They are so easy to use and the colors just blend so well together.  Here’s a closer look:

I would like to thank Jessica Lynn Original for providing this cute 4th of July Brentwood Owl digital stamp that I used today.  

What are you all doing for the 4th of July?  My husband and I will celebrate quietly inside our humble abode, drinking champagne and thanking our forefathers for finding America and having the freedom that we now have today!  I am so proud to be an American!  God bless the United States of America!

I hope you like my project today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day!

Coffee Monster Card with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers

Hello my crafty peeps!  I am sharing yet another one-layer card with you today showcasing my new favorite alcohol markers, the Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  TriBlend marker has a unique 3-in-1 design. It makes it easier to carry around while you’re on the go!  It houses three ink chambers, each delivering separate color through a fine bullet nib.  Inside every TriBlend marker there’s a perfect gradation of three colors, numbered from light to dark, resulting in smooth, controllable blend.

How I made the card:

  • stamp the image on smooth white card stock.

IMG_2046

  • color the images in with the TriBlend Markers.  I used the Ice Blue, Coral, Orange, Light Yellow and Ice Grey Blends.

IMG_2043

  • use green ink to stamp and color the grass.  use the blending brush to add more colors to the grass.
  • use the clouds stencil, blending brush and some light blue ink to add some “clouds”.   Since the color of the monster is already blue, I didn’t really have to mask the image.  However, I carefully tilted the clouds stencil to avoid smudging the image.

IMG_2047

  • Once the coloring is done, I added this colored piece to an A2 size card base.
  • To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using some black ink.  I also used my white gel pen to add a little shine to the coffee cup.
