Cinnamon Sugar - Elizabeth Bell - Passion for Promarkers DT


Good morning everyone. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and this week I have chosen the theme of 'Check it Out'. We need to have checks, plaid or gingham somewhere on your creation.  I have used an old stamp from Elizabeth Bell, don't even know if it's still available as it was one of the first I bought.


She is cut using SB Lacy rectangles and all the other pieces are just straight cut.  The papers and 'extras' are from a Nitwit collection called Grannies Kitchen. The pearls are from my stash.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers and  Flexmarkers and I added Prisma Pencil for more depth.


This is a view of the inside.


We are being sponsored this week by the Digi Stamp Boutique, who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in store to the winner


My other teamies have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration this week and I hope you will check them out here

Spritz - Saturated Canary - Winter Wonderland DT



Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our theme this week chosen by Carol is 'Blue Christmas'. The main colour on your card has to be blue and of course Christmas themed.
I have used an old Saturated Canary image 'Spritz' who I think is just too cute for words.


I think he is one of the best SC images. He is cut using C&C essential plain and decaled rectangles. The holly branches are from Sue Wilson. Small snowflakes are MS. Backing paper from Nitwits and ribbon and pearl from my stash.


He is coloured with Promarkers, flexmarkers and tria markers with distress ink around the edges. I also added Pearl drops to the holly berries and snowflakes.



The highlight around the papers is turquoise pastel metallic.


The inside does reflect the front.

We are being sponsored this week by Crafty Sentiments who are offering the winner 3 digi's of their choice from their shop

Daffodils - Mo's Digital Pencil - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning everyone. Today we have a new challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers, where Shelly (who has now returned to us after maternity leave :))has chosen the theme 'Lovely Lilac and Lemon'. Two colours that I love using together.


I have used another image from Mo Manning, 'Daffodils'. Such a lovely image which really does shout spring is coming.
She is cut using SB grand squares and adding Nitwits papers and coordination layers. The flowers are all from WOC. The lace edger is one of the new 'Victoria' dies from Tattered Lace. The butterfly is MBox, ribbon, pearls and 'dazzler' from my stash. The leaves are a mixture of MB and a MS punch.


She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Tria Markers. It doesn't show very well but I added stickles to her hair and some of the flowers.


This is the inside where I used a TL Victoria doily to make the corners and the flower was in the centre.


I hope you will take the time to join in with us this week. Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments who are offering the winner a choice of 3 digi's from their store

Fairy Needle - Mo's ~Digital Pencil - Winter Wonderland DT


Good morning everyone, and welcome to my new follower Denise, glad to have you join us. Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our host is Lynsey, and our theme is another nice simple one 'Tie a Bow'. I know most of my cards have bows on them, and today I have finally used an image I have had for ages 'Fairy Needle' from Mo's Digital Pencil.


I have been playing with my new 'toy' The latest release from Tattered Lace, wow it is so easy to make stepper cards using the die to cut the card and having all the layers ready to cut and add too. I simply cut a piece of 300g cardstock, added coordinations and then some paper from my stash.


She is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, and believe it or not the background has been airbrushed with my ebosser in the palest pink I could find.


I added some MB spools and needle, and a LOTV sentiment mounted onto a SB tag. The scissors, spool button, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.


This shows the back of the card, again using the dies that come with the easel die to cut the layers, and I added some 'lace' again cut with a TL die.

We are being sponsored this week by Digi Stamp boutique, who are offering a £10 voucher for you to use in store.


I hope you will take the time to check out the gorgeous cards the Snowflakes have made for your inspiration this week here.

Drumming Teddy - Pink Gem Designs - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning and welcome to my new follower Lianna...... wooooow I reached 200, must sort out a give away to celebrate. (Watch this space). Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our theme is 'For A Child'. A nice easy one, I got an early birthday card made for my great, great nephew  :), and you can see what his name is .
I have used a Pink Gem image 'Drumming Teddy' who is just too cute.


He is fussy cut and mounted onto paper from LOTV. The name and age are cut using Desire Dies. I added glossy accents to his hat, eyes and buttons, but have to admit it looks weird on his hat in the photos. The only other addition was some card candy.


He is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and some Gold metallic marker on his hat, cuffs and drum.


The inside does match the front and his hat looks a little better on here. I also double cut the letters to give a gold highlight.


We are being sponsored this week by Pink Gem Designs, who are offering 2 digi's of the winners choice from their designs

Toot Toot - LOTV - Passion for Promarkers DT


Ooops nearly forgot to post this one :(,.. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where our theme chosen by the lovely Marie is 'One for the Boys'.  Nice and simple.  I have used a LOTV image that I bought last year and finally inked up 'Toot Toot'.


A really simple layout. Straight cut imaged layered onto pastel mirror board.  The backing paper and screw brads are from my stash. The sentiment was from a freebie magazine st and mounted onto a SB fancy label.


He is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers with a little Prisma pencil for more depth.  The backgound uses MB clouds as stencils and filled in using my E Brush. I also added some glossy accents to the windscreen and head lights.


The inside does match the front.
