Hi Kathy I've never tried a marker, I've tried ink pads but that's it, I think I must try it!

Jamie said...

Yes I do use a marker when I fussy cut:)! Great kit.

scrapkat said...

Hi Kathy,
what a wonderful card, love the layerd sequins :D
I dindn´t use a marker by now, only inkpad, but think it´s worth to try.

Greetings,
scrapkat(at)gmx.net

Laura said...

I've used a marker to fill in a tiny gap if an image didn't stamp as well as I'd have liked, but not on the edges. I'll have to try that!

~ Laura

Rachel K said...

I've never used a marker on the edge of a die cut shape like this! What a good idea. I often do this to fix up my stamped images, because I'm terrible at fussy cutting! :) I love your card...such a beautiful fall scene!

Cecilia Hsieh said...

I do use a black marker when I fussy cut a stamped image. I find that it hides your uneven stamping and makes the image stand out more!

Chitra Nair said...

Such a beautiful card...
I do use markers whenever I fussy cut my image, it gives a clean finish to it...

Terri Johnson said...

I absolutely use a marker. I learned that trick from you!

Ang said...

I usually use a small ink pad. Will have to try a marker.

Jackie said...

I actually do use a black marker on the edges. Your card is adorable and I love this kit! Autumn is my favorite season and it can't arrive soon enough for me.

Aida said...

I do use a marker Kathy! I try to be perfect but I keep failing at it. LOL At least I have fun trying! Thanks for the chance to win.

Dee Tollaksen said...

Lovely, clever card! I forget what a great finished look inking the edges gives, and using a marker is so handy!

Astrid said...

Yes i do use a marker and i was fun to do.
The card is wonderful, you guys have so much more for Autumn and Halloween then whe have here in The Netherlands.
I take a chance to win this kit.
Hugs Astrid

theCook said...

Fun trees!

Marianne said...

I do use a black marker when I fusssy cut an image. I think it was Kristina Werner who taught me this trick in one of her videos. Love the new card kit. I think they are getting better and better. Also love how you rotated one of your tee tops and tweaked the branches to create different trees. Wonderful scene!

Tracy said...

I just love this card. The one you did with the trees for SSS is amazing too. I just love seeing what you will create next!!!! Thanks for sharing. Yes I do use a black marker on my edges, I love how it finishes things off.

Rebecca Geile said...

I sometimes ink edges, sometimes don't. Doesn't matter to me.

Anso said...

Pretty card!

And yes I always use a marker on the edges of images. :)

Pat said...

Love this kit! I wish I remembered to use a marker when I fussy cut but I haven't yet! Maybe this will motivate me to remember! :)

adele holcomb said...

Your tree scene is adorable! Love the tip about stamping on the back.

I do use a marker frequently for a border on photos, embellies, fussy-cutting and paper piecing. It gets rid of those white edges that annoy me and helps the piece stand out against the background.

Miriam Prantner said...

I really love this kit, my favorite so far I think, the stamp set is great and I love the papers. Yes, I will use a marker on the edges of my stamped images, but mostly for corrections if it didn't stamp well, or if I'm fussy cutting/piecing to get the definition back.

rommelsmom4 said...

I rarely us a marker on the edge of my stamped images. Thanks for sharing.

~ginny said...

You betcha baby!! Markers on the edge are a must for me. Rather than black though I frequently will use the darkest color in the image rather than black... as in around the clothing it will be the darkest shade of the clothing, around the face the darkest skin tones, etc.

Kelly Massman said...

I don't usually use a marker for the edges, but I do occasionally rub ink on them. I love the October kit and your card! Trees and leaves are a family favorite as my hubby turns logs into beautiful pieces of art!!! :-)

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

I never have but you make me want to start doing it hehehe!

Olga said...

I've never thought about a marker. Must try. Lovely card!

ellyscard creatief said...

I never try markers .I use sometimes eyshadow.

jenway9 said...

I just ordered this kit! Oh I love it and all the cards I have been seeing. I typically use a market to match my stamped image and/or paper to get a clean look on my cut outs.

Dana D. said...

Terrific card Kathy. Love the papers you used. I use both ink pads and markers on the edge. SSS card kit looks like so much fun. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Natalie Y. said...

I've seen others using a marker to give the cut out a nice finish, but I've never tried. Mostly cus I never really cut things out. :P

Annamarie Jones said...

Cute card! I've never used a marker on the edges! I'll try that next for the images that I fussy cut! I usually just leave it how it is, never thought to use a marker!

Barb said...

I use a marker or a foam pad with distress ink to finish off the edge of a cut out image. It gives a nice look to the card. Love your card, shari. Thanks for all the ideas.I love the look of the card. I appreciate the opportunity to win the kit.

Lin said...

Love this, Kathy! Great fussy-cutting of those trees!

Francesca said...

Beautiful card and I would love to get the October kit! I often use a marker and sometime I also put some embossing powder to make the edges a little bit more shiny. In other cases I do some distress but I just use some cotton balls from my beauty cabinet for it.

Paula (PEP) said...

I had to smile over the marker - yes, it was one of my first discoveries when fussy cutting stamped images - & yes the Memento one is my favourite, especially as I can heat set it. The sequins look gorgeous & I love the way you created the tree tops with different patterns on them. Thanks for continuing to give such inspiration.
Paula (PEP)

joy said...

The Memento marker is perfect for this and is the one I use now. Before learning about the Memento marker I always used a black Sharpie, especially when I was doing lots of collages of cut images.

Your card is so pretty; I love those sequins too!

SharpTeethOfLove said...

half_blue_sky@yahoo.com

I do like to use a marker, I think it gives a more clean finished look!

Gilu J said...

I use a Memento marker on the edges. It gives it a very finished look.

Martha Green said...

Cute card!
I don't often use a marker on the edges but I'll use a pad or a daubber that is still damp with ink to get rid of the white on the paper edges.

Robin Cooper said...

I do when I remember to.

Mary-Anne V said...

Adorable card...this kit looks amazing. I do use a marker to fill in the edges of fussy cut images.

SheriE. said...

I usually use an ink pad, or a blending tool, but once in awhile I use a marker if the image has little curves and corners. Excited about this kit because of the stamp set and the new Lawn Fawn!

Danielle Thompkins said...

I only use ink pads but think I'll have to invest now! Thanks :-)

Misty said...

I've used a marker for little corners that you can't really get an ink pad into, it works pretty well usually :)

Anonymous said...

Love your card. I´ve alwayes use a marker, I think it looks the best.

Never thought of using a marker. Great idea! Thanks.
And thank you for the chance to win this sweet candy :)

aileen (mum) said...

Hi kathy, you know I never thought to use a marker before. Have always used ink pads. Have used a black marker to touch up cut images if there is white showing or to fix a cut that took too much of the black outline. Love these kits, have never ordered as postage to Australia would probably make them too expensive, a shame hey!

Leslie L. said...

I am glad to see more bloggers mentioning using markers to color the edge of their die cuts. I have been doing this for years and wondered if I was one of a random few that did it because it wasn't mentioned or shown in videos but it is popping up more and more. I was in awe when I saw the reveal of the next card kit; I am really enjoying them.

cghundley said...

I love to ink the edges
of anything I'm creating!
I usually use inks but
have used markers from
time to time. Love the
look it adds.

Gerrina said...

I always use a marker and sometimes not a black one. That occures most with pastel/light colours, but my black marker is never far away on my worktable... Inky greetings, Gerrina

byAnnette said...

I do like to use a marker around the outside edge of my cut out stamps!
Someone has borrowed my marker & is irksome not to be able to use it.

Sue D said...

Lovely fall card and yes I do use a marker on the edge.

Alanna said...

I don't ever think I've used a marker to do that but I like the idea.

Kimberly Rendino said...

Yep, on occasion I'll remember to edge with a marker, lol!!

Those trees are really fun Kathy! No I have not tried using markers on the edge of stamp images nor cards. But I think now I am going to try it!! Thanks for sharing!

I do use a marker on the edge of my cut outs - when appropriate. I usually use a Copic marker, only because it's the only black pen I own. Ha!

jengd said...

What a fabu idea for trees! As for the marker, sometimes yes, sometimes no. It just depends on the image and the end goal. Thanks for the chance!

Karen Schroeder said...

I use a marker on the edges of my paper to make them sand out!

Kimberly Russell said...

I have never tried that technique. But I will now!

Cheryl W said...

This kit looks fantastic. I like that they offer 6 ideas with each kit. Oh yes, and I always use a marker (unless I'm doing some distress inking) on the edge of my images. That little detail adds so much!

Phi said...

Such a cute card.
Sometimes I use a copic marker to go around the edges of my images but perhaps I should give your momento marker a go. Sometimes I find that the copics bleed into the paper a bit. Thanks so much for the tip.

Ann Kulseth said...

I haven't found a marker that works well but often drag the edges of my cut out images through an ink pad - which works well. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sandra said...

you never cease to amaze me .... wonderful card!
I always use markers - I have been using the distress markers lately - always seem to find a color close enough to the paper color to work.
Thanks again for the inspiration.

Dorothy C. said...

Great card - love the sequins. Yes, I use markers on cut edges. Especially on chipboard I've covered with patterned paper. Until I discovered black foam pop dots I used to color the sides on the white ones with a Sharpie.

Solgunn said...

I love this card! No, I don't use a marker, but It looks very good. Will try. Thanks for sharing. Your cards are always stunning. Love them so much.

andreea said...

Oh, the trees you created are so much fun! Yes, I use the black marker for cut out images to hide the white edge. Or if my image is stamped with another color than black, I choose a color to match it. TFS!

Twine Around said...

Hi Kathy, have never thought of using a marker on the side before but have certainly seen lots of other designers do this. Am very new to stamping so don't know all the good tips yet and this seems like a really one. Really love your card and am in love with the Oct 2013 Card Kit. Would love to win!!! shona.chambers@orcon.net.nz

Sheila H said...

I have sometimes used a marker, but not in a long time - I have forgotten. Sometimes I used a sponge and ink. Thanks for the reminder.

Laura Turcotte said...

I think I can count on one hand how many times I've used a marker--I tend to use ink pads. Probably will give the marker another go! Great card, as usual!

silvergran said...

I always use a marker on fussy cut images and die cuts, gives a nice finish and the image pops!

Tammy J said...

Yes I always use a marker and sometimes still mess up and have to start over. LOL. I love coming to your blog daily to see what you have new. I love your cards. But I was wondering about the stamp you used as tree tops. I thought maybe it was a grassy knoll. TFS

Cheryl said...

I use a marker sometimes, but also use a sponge dauber and black ink. I tend to have fewer "accidents" with the dauber. :)

Carrie R. said...

I have not used a marker before, but it's a great idea that I will have to try. Thanks for the tip.

Chrisd said...

I do use a marker on the edge of fussy cut images to cover any small oops or white edges.That kit really looks wonderful!

Michele Clay said...

Yes, I use various markers on the edge of cuts & I love the Memento markers, too! Would live to win the Ictober SSS kit so I can try it out!

Mateja Povše said...

When I fussy cut an image I use black marker on the edge :)

Betty Meyskens said...

I have never used a marker on the cut edge and really never thought about it, but after reading your blog I can see that it would give the cut a much more finished look. I will be ordering one now to try this out. Thanks for the great tip.

Moosisk said...

Love your card! I usually use my Distress ink to edge my cards. I never thought to use a marker. Thanks for the inspiration AND chance to win a fab kit. :D

Amy McCue said...

I have not used a marker, but it does make for a nice finished edge. I will have to give it a try.

Cindy said...

I love your card. I have never tried to use a marker. I always use a sponge or dauber. I will definitely have to try the marker. Beautiful.

Janeen said...

I often use a marker if I am not sponging or distressing the die cut. I do so love kits. Everything coordinates and makes it easy.

Hi Kathy; I love your whimsical card , and yes, I have been using a marker on the cut edges of my fussy cuts / die cuts for a long time .. it just makes things neater looking .

BB said...

I use my distress markers all the time and love them! Nice cards and by the way, where did you get that lovely dauber case?

Terri (blindstamper) said...

Yes, I prefer the look when a marker is run around the cut piece.

Amie Lamm-Griffin said...

I do use them!

Anonymous said...

I have found markers have been making an appearance on my craft table more and more lately. Love those trees. Onepinkdaisy

Terri said...

Yes, I use a marker when I cut out items. It does make a world of difference and seems to hide the little imperfections of fussy cutting.

Kathy H said...

I typically use a marker around anything that I have hand cut. Thanks Kathy!

Winnie said...

So love your card! I was wondering how to use that image I saw, and thought maybe clouds, I didn't see the tree leaves, and now I am really excited. I use either a black or brown marker depending on what diecut or cutout I made. It does look much better because I am NOT a good fussy cutter.

Virginia P FL said...

Great card, I just went ahead and ordered the kit, had to have it...LOL. I love using markers for edging and coloring stamps. The stitching on the solid blue cardstock is great. May have to dust off the sewing machine.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Torrie said...

I love the demential impact of your card. I usually ink my edges.

Marissa said...

I didn't use to, but then I saw Britta do it on one of her videos and I've been using that black Memento marker ever since! Sometimes if I want color, I'll use my daubers instead, but it's usually the marker.

cardsbymo.com said...

I do use markers on the edge on some of my die cut images. It all depends on my mood.

Love the new kit. Thanks for the chance to win it!

KellyRae said...

I love the new kit and what a great inspiration card (I especially LOVE how you stamped on the patterned paper to create your foliage). I color my cut edges about half the time - love the look but I'm usually running late in making the card so that's the step I'll skip (but shouldn't ... because it truly 'finishes' the card). It's the details, you know? Thanks for the chance to win the fabulous card kit.

Janis said...

I forget to do that!! I think I have tried it a time or two, but haven't remembered to, lately. Love the effect and also using the daubers to shade the edges.

Jeanie Gregory said...

I always use a marker on the edge, it does make the stamped image look better. I learned this from Kristina Werner.
Lovely card!!

TLady said...

YES!!! I DO use a marker on the edges of my cut out images! It just helps to make them POP!!!!!:)

Ann Marie said...

Yes I use that same Momento marker. I first got the idea from the lovely Britta Swiderski. And I often use a gold marker on the edges of pieces with a gold sentiment.

GinaE said...

I have only used ink pads, so far, on my card edges. You are truly the master of markers, Kathy!

Melissa_Massy said...

I do use a marker on the edges, but it is usually a Sharpie. I will have to try the Memento. As a side note, I love the sponge dauber tray that is in the corner of one of the pictures. I HAVE to get one of those, mine are labeled but just shoved in a drawer. Thanks for showing that!

mariangel said...

yes, I use them all the time thanks for the chance

Susan Lang said...

Yes, I usually use a black one, but sometimes more the color of the paper. Anything to hide the white edge. But you answered a question for me what those odd shapes were. Trees! Thanks.

Yolanda said...

I use markers if I don't have the right ink color. I use my acrylic block as a palette and then I use a dauber to pick up the color and add to my image. I find I get better control this way.

Cynthia Xavier said...

Hello Kathy, you made such a darling card. I have never tried using a marker around my images but I will now. It definitely gives the card a finished look. Thanks for the tip!

zehra said...

Beautiful card, I do not use the marker I do use distress ink with a dauber, I will try to use both and see how I like it, love how u do it

VARedGem said...

I love this card it really reminds me of Fall trees. I always have a black marker on hand to color along the edges when I do fuzzy cut on an image. When I remember I use a dauber with distress ink to the edges, but as I said when I remember.

Angelique Vela said...

First of all, the card is awesome. I do use markers on my edges, as well as inks. It depends on the effect I want. I often match my marker color to my paper.

SHartl said...

Your card is so sweet! Love the clouds and trees. I actually Do use a marker often on the edges of my cut images. I often use black to give some definition to the image and sometimes use colors to cover the white paper core.

Memories by Manda said...

I use my markers on the edges of my die cuts and cut outs too! I ink the edges of everything as it adds so much dimension. Often a markers is the quickest and most convenient way to do this. I'd love to win the kit.

lostinpaper said...

I agree the black is fabulous and I've been trying to buy a grey memento marker (as I prefer grey on the edge) and have struggled to get it here in Australia. I'm waiting for my next order in the US... my list is getting longer for sure lol.

Debbie F. said...

I like to,use a marker on die cuts because it gives a crisper look with no smudges. Your cards are very beautiful, by the way! Thanks for sharing!

I have used a marker to hide imperfections but I don't do it every time. I do love using ink pads to distress the edges.

I always use a black Copic marker around every image that I fussy cut. I would LOVE to win this kit so I can see a sampling of what is offered. TFS

I do use a marker or perhaps distress ink to finish off the edges of added elements and my cards - just gives them a more finished look. Thanks for a chance to win the great card kit !!!

Thanks for a chance to win. I try my best to remember to use markers on the edge of my cutouts, but don't always remember!

I've never used the marker on the edge of my stamped images. I will be trying it now, it makes your images look so defined.

Fabulous card. Love the layers of rolling hills and trees.

Renee said...

This is really a beautiful fall scene, and yes, I've used Memento black pens around the edges many times - probably because I've seen you do it!

Pam said...

I do use a black marker on the white edges when I fussy cut. Such a crisp look.

I have to say that I haven't ever used a marker on the edge of an image but I can see how it would make the image stand out better! I just love your sweet card with the sequins!

Adorable card and yes I use a marker along the edges when I fussy cut a stamped image.

Iris said...

I usually ink the edges of cut pieces with an ink pad or an inked sponge. Just never thought of using a marker; I'll have to try it.

Yes, I use a marker every time I fussy cut. Thanks for the chance!

Another great card Kathy!!! I've tried using a marker but must need more practice! I usually ink up the edges with either a sponge, dauber or the ink blending tool. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Denise Bryant said...

Great card! Love the colors! Yes, I often use a maker on the edges!

Karenladd said...

Yes, I use markers on the edges of my fussy cut images all the time. I use it even when there isn't a white core to my cardstock...just for definition!

Gina said...

I don't think I've ever used a marker I usually use ink but I'm certainly going to give it a go! Thank you.

Ela G said...

Hi Kathy, I too use a marker for the edges if I cut out a stamped image.

I love the card you created.
Cheers

Rarely. I mostly use an inkpad. Lovely card and kit!!

Sabrina said...

Such a cute card!! I try to remember to use a marker but sometimes I do forget.

Sandy Lewis said...

Hi - your card is so cute! I don't use a marker, but I do use an ink applier. You know, the handle with the sponge on it? I want to try the Momento marker now - it looks cleaner and simpler. Thank you for the inspiration.

Hi Kathy, Amazing card! Thanks for the tips. I don't routinely use a marker. I usually sponge the edges but your technique is much more finished looking. I am added the Memento Marker to my wishlist.

Petti said...

I use ink pad too but should try with marker too now that I see your demo. Thanks!

Love those trees! I don't use a marker on the edge of my stamped images.
