3rd and Final Entry

This is the last of my entries for the Passion for Promarkers 'birthdays' challenge.  I decided to go with a patchwork background because I was inspired by a card on A Load Of Pickle's blog; which come in handy as I couldn't make up my mind which papers to use as First Edtion's Boho Chic pad is so gorgeous.

I used pro and flexmarkers, a stamp called 'kitty in the flowers' from Hunkydory, First Edition 'Boho Chic', distressed inks, glitter, Marianne Designs LR0162 swirly rose & leaves die.

Thanks for visting and wish me luck.

Here is my second card entry for the Passion for Promarkers 'birthdays' challenge.  I printed Trudy out a few times, coloured in and cut out and finally layered her up.  She's so cute...Mo is such a talented lady!

I used Pro and flexmarkers plus a digi stamp from Mo Digital Pencil - called Trudie, Kanban Floral pattern stamp. Sizzix Flower Layer Set, Big & Juicy ink pad.

Thanks for visiting and wish me luck.

Baking Babes

To celebrate the newest member of our family...our new Kenwood Kichen Machine - Heather and I made bread sticks and cupcakes this afternoon. We then loaded our cupcakes  with lots of 'Mr Whippy-like' buttercream topping with silver balls. OMG I've just had one and they are gorgeous...and way too moreish. Both were our first attempts, and  even if I say so myself my breadsticks were fabulous, particularly my plaited ones...thank you Loraine Pascal for your recipe.

Now back to my card making for the Passion for Promarkers challenge.

Butterfly Colours

Made for my closest friend's birthday today.....Happy Birthday Karen!

I used Inkylicious Ink Dusters and stamps,. I used a variety of different ink mainly to give me a few more colours and shades - I used distressed, Mementos and Big & Juicy ink pads.  It was a really easy card but I did fiddle with the colours and shades a bit to make it more vibrant. Finally I added a touch of Stickles for a little sparkle. The camera really doesn't do it justice.

Here are the ingredients I used:

Big & Juicy Pads: Vibrant Primary, Waterfall
Distressed Inks: Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Budled Sage, Worn Lips, Peeled  Paint, Mustad Seed,
Memento ink pads: Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud, Danube Blue
Inkylicious Stamps:  Flutters 1, Create A Collage, Make A Wish, Dandelion Wishes

Thanks for looking....hope you like it!

50th Birthday card

Sssh, I've just made this easel card for my sister!  I'm giving it to her tomorrow, so it's a good job she doesn't read my blog.  I just hope she sees the funny side as she always sends me humerous and unflattering card.

I drew a few ballons and pressies to add the digi stamp (Stella) and put the text in a speech bubble. I then printed off the whole image a few times and coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and copics, then cut out certain areas and layered up.  To finish off the image I added glossy accents to her specs and a splash of glitter.  To add a pretty touch I cut out some flowers, leaves, a swirl and a butterfly.

I loved making this.

Digistamp: Stella Firemen Calling image/sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps (I changed the sentiment and drew my  own balloons and gifts)
Papers & cardstock: Papermania CS and Fizzymoon
Promarkers & Flexmarkers: Aquamarine, Surf Blue, Sky Blue, Pink Pearl, Wild Orchid, Amethyst, Lilic, Saffon, Caramel, Satin, Canary, Pumpkin, Blue Grey
Copics: E21, E11, E95, E35
Flowers: Swirl (LR0162) - Marrianne
Butterfly:Small Exotic Butterfly die - Cherry Lynn Designs
Swirl: Fanciful Flourish die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Disressed Inks: Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord
Spellbinder: Labels 4 die
To finish off I added a touch of glitter and some glossy accents

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.
