Marker Geek Monday Final Round Up for 2016

Happy Monday! Elaineabella here, as usual. Sadly, I don’t have a new Marker Geek Monday for you this week. Last week was pretty rough, and so was I! Since I am guessing that many of you are just as busy as I should be with festive preparations and the general craziness of this time of year, I thought this would be a good time to take a break until the New Year!

If you’re more organised and efficient than I (not that it is hard to surpass me in this area), you might find the round up below useful for taking advantage of any free time!

Here’s a round up of all the Marker Geek Monday posts from 2016. It has been great fun working on this series, and I look forward to continuing with renewed energy in January 2017! A big thank you to everyone who has shown their appreciation for the series, I hope you all continue to enjoy it in 2017.

Hi everyone!  it’s Kathy here on my last Wonderful Wednesday of the month with Stamping Bella.

On the last day I would  like to try to give you all something different so this time I am bringing back the Starbuck Cup Card!!! You can see the fall cup card that I did a year ago here

On this card I used NACHO

and I added some pretty eyelids and eyelashes to her 🙂

and here’s a closeup

In the video … besides cutting the Starbucks cup for a card …a few of the fine detail tips I share how I added enamel accents on the eyes, glossy accents on the nose and an embossing buddy to get a nice clean embossed sentiment.

Watch the video in HD here and a thumbs up is always appreciate if you like it.

Check out more of Kathy’s inspiration using the Starbucks cup including how to make a holder on the inside of the card to fit the cup!  BRILLIANT!
