Sarah - Wee Stamps - Sylvia Zet - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning everyone. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and our theme is ' Blooming Marvelous' chosen by the lovely Lisa. We want to see flowers on your card.  I have used one of Sylvia Zet's new images, 'Sarah' what a cutie she is.


For a change I made a criss cross card. She is cut using SB Grand opulent circles with a plain circle behind her. The 'lace' edging is a MS punch. I added holly spay from Sue Wilson and the poinsettia's are a mixture of Sue Wilson and Spellbinders. The resin flowers are from WOC.



She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Tria markers and Flexmarkers with some Prisma pencil added for depth.  I also added copious amounts of Glamour Dust to her fur trim and pompoms.  



The papers are all from LOTV and I added liquid pears to the ones inside the card and flat back pearls to the outside ones.


The inside of the card with a MB sentiment.


Our sponsor this week is the fabulous POLKADOODLES with the winner receiving a digi.

Let's Get Sentimental - Winter Wonderland Challenge.


Good morning. I hope everyone is well. Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our theme is 'Let's Get Sentimental', really easy as there just has to be a sentiment somewhere on your project.
Something really different from me this week, a card without using Promarkers.  



I fell in love with the new Tonic dies and just had to order the full set. The sentiment is from an old Kanban set I had 'stored'. The poinsettia is a mixture of SB and Sue Wilson dies. Everything is mounted on a layer of gold and one of red mirror board.  The other side is cut with a SB grand square and I used Stormy Sky distress ink to create the background and give the trees some shading. The trees are a mixture of Marianne and Diesire dies. Santa should have another reindeer at the front but it wouldn't fit. It's cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  I then added copious amounts of Glamour Dust and Ice Crystals.


I created the inside with Nitwit papers and elements and the sentiment is computer generated using my favourite 'Tangerine' font.

So back to the challenge and this week we have 3 fabulous sponsors.


Delicious Doodles are offering 4 Digi's of your choice 

Digital Delights are giving a $5 voucher

To My Best Friend - Scrapberry's - Passion for Promarkers DT


Good morning everyone hope all is going well for you. Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where Julie has selected the theme 'Lace'.... we want to see it somewhere on your creation.  I finally got around to completing a card using a Scrapberry's image which is available from Funky Kits.


She is cut using a SB grand circle and mounted only a Marianne Circle die.  The butterfly is from MB and corners are Persian Accents,and sentiment mount is a lacy cirlcle, both age from SB.  The dp is from the Boufle pack. Lace from Live and love crafts and all pink is co-ordinations. 


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Triamarkers and Flexmarkers with a little Prisma pencil added. I also distressed around the edge with spun sugar.


I added diamond stickles to the sentiment and top layer of the butterfly. Sorry for the quality of the photos, there just wasn't any sun and had to take these using daylights.


I added more Persian accents to the inside.

We are being sponsored this week by Letraset who are offering the winner a set of 6 Flexmarkers

Dan and Snowman - Digi Stamp Boutique - Winter Wonderland DT


Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers on Bloglovin. Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where our theme this week is 'Frosty the Snowman', so we want to see a snowman somewhere on your card.  I chose to use a really cute image from Digi Stamp Boutique 'Dan and Snowman', and for a change I made a stepper card.



I cut him using a WRS snowflake frame. I added a straight cut card which I had added SB Essential Elements to, then mounted onto a LOTV paper and more co-ordinations and matt silver mirror board.
The snowflake side panels are mounted onto clear acetate and are from Joy Crafts. The little trees are from MB and the star is from JS.  The sentiment is LOTV and gems from my stash., phew quite a few elements :)


Abetter view of the image, which is of course coloured with Tria Markers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers with a little Prisma pencil for emphasis. I added glamour dust to the snowman, star and frame. He is standing on Pinflair Ice Crystals and I added glossy accents to his wellies, and the snowmans nose and buttons. Finally I added Glistening Snow Writet randomly to look like snow falling.


I just wish I could get glamour dust to show in pictures.



We are lucky to have 2 sponsors this week and they are

Winter Fairy Talva - Mo's Digital Pencil - Passion for Promarkers DT.

Good morning, I am back this morning with a card for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where the theme chosen by me is 'Add some Sparkle'.  Not the easiest thing to photograph when there is no sunshine around.  I chose an image that has been around for quite a while, it's 'Winter Fairy Talva' from Mo Manning.


This is one I have been waiting to colour up. She is straight cut and mounted onto silver mirror card.  I added a Marianne Poinsettia, Snowflake corner from WRS and Tattered lace Sentiment. Mounted onto purple glitter card and purple mirror card. The ribbon and gems are from my stash.


She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Tria Markers and some Prisma pencil (especially to give curls to her hair).  I added glossy accents to her wings and filled in with Glamour Dust, then added more Glamour Dust to her dress, hat and snowball.


This is one I photographed flat to try and show more glitter.



I tried all angles to get the glitter to show. The inside does reflect the front.


We are being sponsored this week by Polka Doodles who are offering the winner a digi called Miss Charlotte

Xmas Hamster - Wee Stamps - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning everyone, and welcome to my new followers on Bloglovin. Today I have a new card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge were our theme this week is 'Gold'. It can be anywhere on your project, but it must be visible.
I have used the really cute Xmas Hamster from Wee Stamps. Sylvia really does draw beautiful images.


As you can see I went over the top with gold.  The image is cut using SB lables 28 with a faux nestie behind it. I mounted onto some Hunkydory gold spotted card. The poinsettia corner and merry Christmas are from Memory Box. Ribbon, brad, bells and gems from my stash.


I coloured him with Chameleon pens but after trying them a few times I have returned them to Create and Craft as I found them too fussy to work with when trying to get good blends.  I added some Prisma pencil for more detail and some distress ink to the edges. I also added gold glamour dust and white flower soft and some glaze to his nose and eyes.



 When cutting the poinsettia I added tape to the back to keep the petals in the die cut.


The inside has a Marriane poinsettia and the verse is from LOTV cut with a WRS frame.

Our sponsors this week are;-

Marianne Designs with a surprise for the lucky winner


and Delicious Doodles who are offering 4 digi's of your choice


The other girls on the Snowflakes team have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration this week I hope you will take time to view them here.

Marie Antoinette - Aurora Wings - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning everyone.... still away in Egypt but I have scheduled my post again for this week.  The lovely Nic has chosen the theme of 'Make it Feminine' at Passion for Promarkers this week.  I have used an Aurora Wings image 'Marie Antoinette' and had great fun colouring her up and looking for colours that are different from the ones others have used.


She is cut with SB Elegant labels 4 and Grand labels 4. They do work so well together. She is mounted on green co-ordinations card with matt gold mirror board behind her in layers.  The flowers are from WOC and the pearls are from my stash.


She is coloured with Triamarkers, Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a little Sacura pen on the pearls. I also added glossy accents to her lips and to the cherry on the cake. I added a little pumice stone Distress ink around her.


The inside does reflect the front but with less layers.

We are being sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering 7 digis of their choice to the lucky winner.

Mistletoe - Kenny K - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning everyone, as you are reading this I am enjoying (hopefully) the sunshine in Egypt again. Hope the weather is being a little better for you than it was last week at home.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Winter Wonderland where the lovely Lynsey has chosen the theme of 'Layer it up' so we definitely want to see a few on your creations.
We are being sponsored this week by Kenny K and I chose to use the glam 'Mistletoe' for my card.


She is cut using the middle SB Snowflake view die and mounted onto red co-ordinations card. The backing papers are from Nitwits. Sentiment from LOTV. Icicles from Cheery Lynn and trees from Dee's Distinctive dies (I think, sorry if I am wrong) Ribbon, gems and brad from my stash.


She is coloured with Triamarkers, Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added Flowersoft and Glamour Dust to her fur, and glossy accents to her eyes, lips and belt.


The trees have a coating of snowtex to the edges and I dotted all over with white pen.


The inside does reflect the front.

Now back to our sponsor, Kenny K is offering 3 digi's of your choice to the winner.



Don't forget we are a Christmas challenge site so your card has to be Christmas related.  I hope you will have a look at the fabulous cards the other girls have made for your inspiration this week.
