Rapunzel (Go Away) from Mo's Digital Pencil


I've been very quiet on social media recently  - just not had enough time or energy, what with my Dad and Daughter visiting and I've been suffering from a yucky throat infection which seems to have struck a lot of people down.  

Back on it today though, sharing this fab new image from Mo's Digital Pencil - Rapunzel (Go Away).  Just love it!
Lots of Marianne products used here, old and new items, mainly the balustrade which was released last month- full list below.

Balustrade - LR0611
Bricks from Arch Window die set - CR1389
Ivy and Bird - LR0206
Papers - Weathered Wood - PK9155
- Birds and Flowers - PK9085

And I think the sentiment might be PTI but borrowed from a friend a long time ago and can't be sure!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Nana - still time to enter our Animal themed challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil

I made this card using Nana  from Mo's Digital Pencil merged with the medicine (which I've just realised is missing it's top!!).  And you still have time to enter into the monthly challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenges which has an optional theme of Animals but in fact just share your  makes with a Mo image and you'll be in the draw!

 I started off with a different card in mind hence Nana has a green tinge round her edges but actually I quite like how it  ties in with the rest of the card.

The label sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse, sadly no longer trading, cut out with co-ordinating Spellbinder frames.  The small feel better sentiment is PTI and the papers are Curio from Basic Grey.

Not feeling too great at the minute, hacking cough which I think Holly had so feeling a bit rough!!

Enjoy the long weekend here in the UK!

This is not just a Christmas Elf it's a Mo's Digital Pencil Christmas Elf!

Right?  Isn't that so true - no-one quite does an elf like Mo!!  (A little play on a TV advert for non-UK visitors!)

This is Little Elf Kippa - I just love the cheeky sideways look from Kippa - so clever!  You can find this  little cutie here in Mo's Store.

The large Bauble die is from Marianne Designs (last Christmas I think - LR0560), the bells too (COL1363) and the tag (CR1353).

Folded Card

Very simple card from me today but great for those pesky  male cards and an ideal sentiment!  The sentiment is from Woodware and the background typeset stamp is from Marianne Designs (CS0992).

Short and sweet today!

Dies and Punches Challenge at PFP

Morning folks - it's definitely more autumnal here, so here's a Christmas card for you with this gorgeous Snowman At the Window image from Crafty Sentiments, who happen to be our sponsors at Passion for Promarkers this week.
The theme is Dies and/or Punches and I've used this fab lace edged frame from Marianne Designs which is new this month.  The shaker window and snow are also from Marianne and the beauty is that lots of their square dies will fit over it to hold the window in place!  (They also do a round shaker window for their round dies!!).  

The papers are from Bo Bunny and the sentiment is an old one from Personal Impressions.  Full list of  Marianne products below.

Square Die - CR1475 - NEW!
Shaker Window Insert- LR0024  
Shaker snow - LR0028
Believe Die - COL1458
Scarf Die - LR0439
Tag from Big/Little Label set - CR1353

Check out the fabulous makes of my teamies here - it's fantastic to see how this image can look so different!!
 Crafty Sentiments Designs  are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  

Have a great day.

Craft Creations MDF Plaques

Did you manage to catch the release of these fab new MDF designs from Craft Creations on  Hochanda yesterday?  I was thrilled and not a little daunted to be asked to have a play with them to make some samples for the release.
However, they were a complete joy to work with and I especially loved the Highland Cow.

I painted the base and top plate with acrylic and then highlighted the flowers in teal. Added some copper wax to her horns then added some upcycled bits of old jewellery for her nose ring and earrings!

My photo isn't so great here but I painted both pieces in white acrylic then highlighted the flowers, main and horn with Posca pens.  I finally added some Shabby Pink Frantage and some fibres and mini bells at the bottom.  I've not shown it here but to make it into a wall hanging I added some hooks, white string and a piece of whitewashed driftwood.  You can also get stands from Craft Creations so they can be free standing.

For the frame again I've just painted with acrylic then rubbed so Copper Treasure Cold to highlight the floral elements.  The paper is a piece from the Vintage Chic collection that came out a few weeks ago.

I think they had a sell out on the Hochanda shows which I'm not surprised if you see the amazing makes of the girls on the DT - just superb!

You can find more details here at Craft Creations.
