Make it Digital at Passion For Promarkers

Today's card is for our  new challenge at Passion for Promarkers where the theme is Make It Digital and we want to see your digital images or papers or both!. My digi image is called Zoom from Mo's Digital Pencil - what a sweetie, he is, just like my little great-nephew Sam, who is 2 today!
I made a penny slider card, my papers from DCWV seemed to just call for it!  I don't have a tutorial  but there are plenty out there in blogland and they really are easy to make.
You can see in these two pics how he 'drives' through the park!
The plane and banner are PTI and the round sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
You can check out the rest of the wonderful cards from the PFP team here.
Have a lovely day, everyone,

Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop

Hi there, we have a great theme for this month's blog hop  with Mo's Dream Team - Teens, as chosen by our wonderful Kaly which is also where you should start to hop from.  If you're already hopping then hopefully you arrived here from the amazing Gretha's blog, who will have had an awesome make to show you, I know!
I used the fabulous Dare as my image of choice for this theme - just perfect for all those teens who are just too cool for school, don't you think!  I coloured him with my Promarkers and had some papers in mind to use but then I decided to use this Impression Obsession wall background stamp and it went on from there!
The window arch was cut with a Poppy Stamp Small Gothic Window die which I layered up a few times to give a 3-D feel.  I cut this out of some packaging card, and it's just right for that stone effect.  The scene through the window is another Impression Obsession Cover the Page stamp, with gorgeous birch trees in relief.
The cogs are a mix of chipboard and card and all have been given the Frantage treatment for the metal effect with a Tim Holtz dial hand in the middle of the main one.
The crown and wings are cut from a Spellbinders Heraldic Frame set as is the shield on the wall - it's stamped with lion which I then frantaged but it looks a bit blobby - can you make out it's a lion?  
The pennant banner and the sentiment banner are both Tim Holtz dies, and the sentiment is from a Dovecraft set called, Wordsmiths ( I think!). As you can see I used lots of various colours of Frantage for that aged/shabby regal effect/
You should now be hopping over to the wonderful blog of Debby Y who will have a fab creation to share with you.  
Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to leave comments on each of the DTs' posts as  there are two $5 vouchers  hidden somewhere to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil!
The full order of this month's hop is shown below.

Sketch N Stash

I'm not very often ahead of the game, but I made this card back at the beginning of January, for my daughter Emily's 19th birthday!  The image is from an Indigo Blu Pride and Prejudice set, as is the sentiment which is perfect, as Em is a beauty! The card is also my DT card for our new challenge at Sketch N Stash starting today  I rotated the sketch to better suit the shape of the image!
For a change I used my Distress Markers to colour the image. 
The flourishes are a PTI stamp and die combo, the background script paper is actually an Impression Obsession all over the page stamp. The birdcage is a Memory Box die.

We're being sponsored this week by The Crafty Devils with a Crafty Bag on offer as the prize - sounds intriguing!
The DT over at Sketch N Stash have made some wonderful cards here, so do check them out!
Have a great week!

Passion For Promarkers Have a Heart

I cannot believe it's a week since I posted a card -what!  Have to confess though, my mojo went awol and just haven't felt up to visiting my little craft room.  I did enjoy making this card though which is for the new challenge starting today over at Passion for Promarkers.  And with Valentine's Day almost upon us, we have the perfect theme of Hearts, chosen by our lovely Shelley.
My image is from Mo's Digital Pencil, Ragged Romeo - so sweet, which I've framed with Theresa Collins papers cut out using a Go Kreate set of dies, Frilly no 10, I think!
The flowers were cut with a  Spellbinder die set, and the big heart with a Joy Craft Die. The teeny hearts are Impression Obsession.  I added a bit of aging with Aged Scarlet Frantage and then coloured some white seam binding with a Burgundy Promarker to ensure the colour matched my papers!

We have two sponsors this week, Letraset and Angel Crafts, so come and join us for this week's challenge.

Check out the rest of the DT's fabulous makes here and come and join us!!

Fairy Sleepy

I just knew that I wanted to team up this sentiment die from Memory Box with one of Mo's latest digital stamps, Fairy Sleepy which you can find here in Mo's store.

The papers are from a Kaisercraft pad, Lulu and Roy, with various dies from Memory Box (sentiment and corner die), Joy Crafts (semi-circular filligree die), Magnolia (Heart Tag), Joanna Sheen(heart banner die).
The little pink border comes with the papers, and the rest of the embellies are all from my stash.
That's all from me today - thanks for all your well-wishes, I am feeling a whole lot better!xx

Sketch N Stash

This is what I felt like doing all weekend, just didn't feel at all well- sadly, it's Sunday night and I'm feeling a whole lot better which means back to work Monday!
Anyhoo, this is for our new challenge at Sketch N Stash using the sketch below. 
I've had the image in my stash for quite a while - a yummy rubber stamp from Lili of the Valley.
I've used quite a few other long-standing stash goodies including the Sizzix Weathered Clock die and also the leaves die.  The circular sentiment is also LOTV, as is the Happy Birthday stamp, whilst the tickets and the tissue tape are from Tim Holtz.  The newest items are my papers which are from My Mind's Eye and were a present from my matey Lesley, (also the corrugated papers, which I love!!)
We have not one, but two, sponsors for this challenge and they are as follows:


Prize $10
Come along and play along with us!  Check out the makes of my fabby DT buddies over at SNS here!
