Passion For Promarkers Lots of Layers Challenge

Isn't this little piggy the cutest - nothing like a muddy puddle right!  He's Pig in Wellies from Lee Holland Designs and he's for our new Lots of Layers Challenge at Passion for Promarkers starting today! My kind of challenge - thanks to our lovely Lisa for choosing it!  Lots of layers means lots of die cuts for me and there is a list of all the Marianne Dies I used below:

Marianne Products Used

Lined Square Die - CR1469 - NEW!
Wonky Squares Die - CR1375
Inverted Circle Die - CR1239
Stitched Wave Border - CR1361
Sun and Clouds - CR1402

The papers are Pink Paislee Fancy Free and the sentiment actually came with a Stampin Bella image which I almost came across by accident when I was rummaging through my stamps!

As I said, Lee Holland are our sponsors for the first time and they are offering the lucky winner  two digi images of their choice - nice!  The design team have been able to work with a couple of their images so check them out here if you'd like some inspiration!

Hobby Art flowers

Something a bit different from me today - this is the card we made at the Hobby Art make and take at Farnborough Make It show back in February.  I think this is one of the nicest make and takes I've done at a show.

It's coloured with their watercolour brushes  and I love the touches of gold paint to finish off.  I'm trying to find some time to make some more cards like this but got so many others to do first!  Still, it's raining here which is much needed, so I'm going to spend the rest of the day in my craft room!
Enjoy your weekend whatever you're doing!

Mo's Mud Room Girl

I know Easter is over but bunnies are not just for Easter right!!  This is Mud Room Girl from Mo's Digital Pencil and it so reminds me of our Violet who is always putting on and pulling off her wellies as she comes into the house!

I love this new bunny die from Marianne too -details below.  The die cuts go perfectly with the papers from Pebbles Inc.  The sentiment is by PTI and I always have a cheery sort of day with Violet!!

Marianne Products Used

Stitched Circle Frame - CR1360
Rabbits - LR0589 (New) and CR1340

Hi all  - just sharing a few Lavinia fairy cards that I made using masking tape across the bottom and top edges of rectangular cards.  I especially love this first one with these three dancing with gay abandon!

Thanks for popping in!

Valerie Bunny

With Easter just about here, I thought I'd share  Valerie Bunny with you - such a cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The papers are so yummy and I think from Crafts Too.  The image has been cut out with a Stitched Oval die from Marianne Designs and the Easter sentiment is also from Marianne although it is quite an old one.

The flowers are some wooden ones from my stash and I added some Craft Confetti to the middles.

The weather is glorious here at the minute so we'll be having an egg hunt in the garden followed by firing up the BBQ - enjoy your weekend!

Patterned Paper at Passion for Promarkers

Morning - it's time for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and I'm the host for this week!  So I've chosen one of my favourite things to be in the challenge - Patterned Papers!  So dust off your paper pads, lay out your Promarkers and set to!
We're being sponsored by All Dressed Up digi stamps for the challenge and they really do have some of the most gorgeous images - I've chosen Butterfly Wings to work with and teamed her up with some Tonic Studio papers that are so pretty.

I've cut out my image with a stitched circle die from Marianne and the butterflies are from a Build -a -Butterfly new Collectables set from Marianne too, details below:

Butterfly set - COL1466 - NEW!
Stitched Circle die - CR1360

The sentiment is one I've had an age and I curved it slightly on the acrylic block so it followed the lines of the circle edge - I think it could be either Penny Black or Hero Arts but I've not got the packaging!

As I said we're being sponsored by All Dressed Up for this challenge and they're offering the lucky winner of our challenge 2 digi images.  So come and join in the challenge to be in with a chance of winning - I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations.

And don't forget to check out the fabulous makes of my teamies here - it's so lovely to see how we've used the same image and the different makes that they've made - fabulous!

New Life Together - from Mo's Digital Pencil

I love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil - you can just feel the joy!  It's called New Life Together and you can find it here in Mo's store.  I've coloured it  with tones that would make it great for an autumn wedding but I think it would be perfect for a spring wedding too!

My papers are from Prima and all the dies are Marianne, and I think this sentiment from Marianne is one of my favourites for wedding cards - detailed list below:

Marianne Products Used

Background Frame - LR0180
Corner Dies - LR0538
Border - LR0539
Wedding Sentiments Set - CS0999

Happy Tuesday - the sun is shining up here so hope to do a bit of gardening later after a trip to the hairdressers!

The challenges at Mo's Digital Pencil are back!!

Yes, I hope you're doing a happy dance - we've had lots of requests to bring back the monthly challenges for Mo's Digital Pencil and so our first one starts today with an optional theme of Spring.  The Digital Pencil Too challenge blog is here if you'd like to see the inspiration from the Dream Team and a couple of special guest designers!  And come and join in - you could be a guest designer on a future challenge!!

I've actually used a retiring image - Easter Carly - but she's still in the store at the minute so click on the link and grab her while you can!!

My papers are Maja Design and other than that I've kept it very simple - I'm not sure who the lattice die is by sorry - I've lost the packaging!

Happy Saturday everyone!!

Make it Cute Challenge at PFP

It's Tuesday so it's new challenge day at Passion for Promakers with a great theme of Make It Cute as chosen by our lovely Sue.  This little digi Ellie from Lili of the Valley seemed to fit the brief perfectly!

I've used some old Memory box papers and then just added the Marianne Flourish border for a bit detail - catalogue number LR0269.  The sentiment is also from a Lili of The Valley set.

Our generous sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Designs and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Some of the design team were lucky enough to use images from Crafty Sentiments designs on their creations this week.

Some of my teamies have worked with a few cuties from Crafty Sentiments so check them out here and then come and play along with our challenge.

Hugs, Juliexx
