It's my day to post an other-than-stamping post for Marker Pop....so I will share a little weekend get-away to Washington Island in Door County WI. We headed up to bike the island which you get to by taking a ferry.
Our two munchkins anxiously await the launch of the car ferry on a beautiful summer day!
Loaded and taking off!

A beautiful day on the island!
I can't help it....now that I've been browsing in my photos....I want to SCRAP! Addicted to paper, I AM!
This is one of two posts today, please check back in a bit for post 2!
Hello! Today I have a gorgeous image to share with your from FrogsWhiskersInk called Trish's Stone Gate.
I colored my image with Copic Markers; YG67, YG17, G99, YG95, YG91, BG0000, B66, V04, T4, W5, W3, W1, E44, E43, E42.
I trimmed the image and layered it on white cardstock which I trimmed with a Fiskars deckle edged scissors.
I added Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress Ink to my embossing folder, added a touch of sheer ribbon and a decorative brad for my finishing touches!
I love using paper embroidery on a card to dress it up a bit. This is the first time I used three different coordinating threads to frame my image. I create a pattern I like, pierce it freehand and then stitch it up!
It's Prickley Pear Themed Thursday...and this week our focus is on ornaments!
I used the Ornaments 2 Clearly Beautiful Clear Set for my card. I stamped the ornament on acetate with Stazon ink and then glittered the back with Art Institute Teak and Green Briar Ultra Fine Glitters. I fussy cut the acetate ornament and then layered it on some white glitter cardstock that I used with the ornament die.
I paired it up with Simple Stories' Handmade Holiday, a glittered element from my goodie box, some glittery goodness from Prima to hang my ornament on!
I colored this fellow with Copic Markers: YG67, YG17, R59, R29, B000, E27, E25, E23. I fussy cut him out and popped him up on foam tape on a Cuttlebugged and distressed oval. I did some paper embroidery with some gold metallic floss. The gold ribbon is wired and fit my card perfectly. The corners are some metallic gold cardstock that I embossed, and they look like pressed tin!
Merry Christmas is from SU! and the red background panel is stamped with Impression-Obsession's Circle Fusion 1 Cover A Card background stamp in Patriot Red You're So Fine Glitter! SHPARKLY!

I popped the image up with foam tape and added a bit of May Arts ribbon to embellish.
Here you can see the inside of the pouch...and below you can see the flattened out packaging and the hand stitched insert that I placed the *gift card* on. You can put your message under the gift card or on the back of the insert.
Hello! Today I have a post for MarkerPop; a photo tutorial of the Woven Washi Tape Technique that I used on yesterday's Lawn Fawn/Marker Pop Blog Hop!
1. Choose two tapes that you want to work with. I chose two 1/2 inch tapes, and so used a 3x3 inch square piece of coated cardstock. I found that you need to have a cardstock that won't separate onto the tape as you repeatedly lift the pieces as you are weaving.
2. Continue to add pieces of tape carefully lifting and tucking as you go.
3. When you are done, trim and tuck the tails behind your panel. The variety of backgrounds you can achieve is as broad as your Washi Tape collection!
4. You can vary the pattern of your weave, see the Double Weave Variation above...I simply wove over two strips and then under two strips.
5. The Faux Weave piece was done with tape that already has a variety of patterns on it. I simply laid tape down in strips, carefully matching the designs so it looks like I did some fancy cutting, when in reality I simply laid down strips of tape! The possibilities are endless!
I hope you've been inspired you use your Washi Tape in a new way! I'm pretty sure I've inspired myself to purchase some more Washi Tape!! Love the stuff!
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and some cork for my corner punches. A few tiny screws finish off this autumn beauty!
