Happy Saturday my Stampin’ peeps! Do you want to know how I use a Sharpie to create a great card accent? I have a fun little technique to share with you and you’re going to love it because you probably already have the supplies you need to do it – a Sharpie Marker and a black pen. I created a simple little accent to my card today using those 2 pens and what a difference it makes! As a bonus, I have a Creative Juice sketch to go along with the card! Check it out below!


In today’s video I will share with you a simple version plus a stepped up version of the same card. So, for those of you who are just starting out and have simple supplies, I have a great card for you but if you have a little Baker’s Twine and some Stampin’ Dimensionals, you can add a little extra pizzazz to the card.

Are you ready to see how to use a Sharpie to create a great card accent video? Let’s go!

I know how much you guys love Creative Juice sketches. I have 4 different layouts using today’s simple sketch. Pick your favorite and start creating! You can download today’s sketch to your computer or to Pinterest so you will have it when you need it.

Remember, the colors mean nothing. Get creative with your colors and how you stamp. It’s all about the creativity!



If you love Creative Juice Sketches, I have two great tutorial collections for you. It’s a great way to have all that inspiration in one place. 

Each collection contains:
