Little Bit of Gossip - Sugar Nellie - Passion For Promarkers DT

Good morning everyone. I hope you enjoyed your Easter weekend. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers where the lovely Lou has given you a sketch to work with.
A nice easy one so lots of scope to play with.
I have used a Sugar Nellie image 'Little bit of gossip' which I bought ages ago and finally got inked up.


She is cut using a Tonic dotty lace circle and mounted onto a SB grand circle. The sentiment is from LOTV and is mounted on a lacey circle.  The Kensington corners are Tattered Lace. The butterflies are Cheery Lynne and a MS punch. Backing paper from Nitwits. Lace, charm, ribbon, flowers and gems from my stash.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Prisma Pencils.  I also added loads of Glamour Dust to her wings.


The inside does reflect the front.


I hope you will take the time to view the fabulous cards my teemies have made to inspire you this week.  Our sponsor is Letraset who are offering a set of Flexmarkers to the lucky winner.

Spring Elves - The Paper Shelter - TPS.DT


Good morning everyone it with a little heavy heart that today is my last day on The Paper Shelter design team.  I have been with them for almost 2 years and felt it was time to give someone else the chance to work with their beautiful images.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with them.

Today's challenge is 'Spring Delights' and I have chosen one of the newest images 'Spring Elves' to work with.


I think they are charming. They are cut with a SB grand circle and mounted onto a grand decorative circle.
I used a MB tree, floral border and 2 flower stems. The fence is from Doohicky. The larger butterflies and the grass border are Cheery Lynn and the small butterflies are a MS punch. Gems from my stash.


They are coloured of course with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and a Little Prisma Pencil. I added distress ink to the background. 


I hadn't finished the inside when I took the photo's but it does match the inside.


Veronica and Pedro are very generously offering their usual prize of a $30 voucher to spend in store if you use a TPS image or 3 digi's of your choice for any other image used.


The other girls have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration this week, I hope you will check them out.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers and the lovely Julie has chosen the theme 'Embossing Dry or Heat'. So lots of scope there.
I decided to go with dry.  I don't know about you but I keep buying embossing folders and just never seem to get around to using them. Well today I have and its a floral square one from Crafters Companions, and this forms the base of my card.


My image is from Delicious Doodles and I have printed the image 4 times and decoupaged the flowers and butterfly and added an extra butterfly. The flowers are WOC. The doily behind the image is from Tonic. Leaves are a MS punch. Ribbon and pearls from my stash.  It doesn't show very well but I added stickles just about everywhere.

Elf with Poppy Blooms - Aurorawings - Passion for Promarkers DT

Well finally I get to post my card.   What a couple of days I've had. Was working on the pc on Sunday and thought I could smell something strange......  I could..... it was the power supply burning out.  Smoke and sparks coming from the pc...... luckily for me it didn't affect the hard drive and the lovely little boy.... must be at least 18... :)  managed to save it and add it to my new pc. £440 later and a days wait and I am up and running again and desperately trying to work out what to reinstall.  This is also a Windows 7... totally different from Vista so it will take a while to get used to.
Anyhow enough of my moans.... Welcome to my new follower, thanks for taking the time to join my list.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and I have chosen this week's theme, which is 'Butterfly Kisses' (must have a butterfly somewhere).... easy or what?

I have used another image from Aurora Wings and this is Elf with Poppy Blooms.  I adore poppies but decided to go with the Icelandic type this time.


No added flowers as I didn't want to detract from the gorgeous image. She is cut with a SB Grand oval and matted onto another one and then I added a Grand Decorative oval.  The sentiment is from LOTV and is mounted onto a lacey circle.  The butterflies under the ribbon and the single one are from MB and the ones on the other side are Joanna Sheens.  Everything is mounted onto co-ordinations.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, and Triamarkers. I also added Prisma pencil for extra depth and stickles to the lightest parts of the flowers. Wish it showed more.  I also filled in the butterfly wings with glossy accents, but again it doesn't show.


The inside does reflect the front.



We have two generous sponsors this week – first is our regular sponsor Letraset and they are offering one lucky winner a flex marker 6 pack of pens.

Cute Cave Girl - The Paper Shelter - TPS DT


Good morning everyone, back again, but this time with my TPS head on.  Today is the start of a new challenge 'Animal Crackers' and oh my have The Paper Shelter girls made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration this week.
I have used Cute Cave Girl and decided to go with decoupage as Veronica's colouring is so stunning here.


She really is so cute and as for her crazy pet.... So no colouring for me and I used to backing that come with her only adding a couple of layers of co-ordinations and a few pearls from my stash. U also added glossy accents to her eyes and mouth and the the cat's nose and teeth.


There are actually 5 layers to her and the great thing is you get a matching 'plain' backing to use as the insert for your card so it keeps everything matching beautifully.


As always Veronica and Pedro are offering $30 in store credit for a project using a TPS image and 3 digi's of your choice for any other image used.
