MarkerPop and Tina Wenke Designs Blog Hop

A while back, I was contacted by Tina Wenke asking if I’d like to try some of her new Christmas patterned papers.  When I was designing for Stampavie, Tina’s designs were some of my absolute favorite stamps (They still are!) so I was excited to get to try some of her patterned papers, too. 
Today MarkerPop is teaming up with artist and designer Tina Wenke to bring you a fabulous day of Tina Wenke inspired Christmas projects.

If you haven't heard of Tina Wenke, here is a little info about her. Tina is an artist and designer who enjoys crafting, too. Her artwork and designs can be found on many different products like greeting cards, stationery, gifts, and of course stamps and paper crafting!  Tina's work is beautiful & MarkerPop is so happy to be carrying her stamp designs (by Stampavie) & Tina also has a gorgeous line of patterned papers available at her online store.

We are so lucky to be hopping with Tina's products today. Each designer will share beautiful inspiration using Tina Wenke stamps & papers.  Make sure to hop along the designer list & see what everyone created today.


I used Tina’s adorable Santa with Children image.  I absolutely love this image!  (MarkerPop does not have this particular stamp in stock, but you can find lots of Tina’s other stamps here.)  Of course, I also used some of Tina’s new patterned papers that you can purchase from her store here.  I love the different patterns and the papers are printed on thick, quality paper.


I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers.  I sketched in the base board to separate the wall and floor in the image so I could color them.


I used a sentiment from Catslife Press.  I love seal sentiments and those from Catslife Press are among my favorites.

Now, let's talk prizes!

Tina Wenke has generously donated a prize of 2 stamps (1 of her Winter designs and 1 Spring design) plus a pack of her Winter Papers & MarkerPop is giving away a $15 gift certificate. One lucky winner will win it all!
