Marianne Designs Christmas Gnome

I just love these gnome stamps from Marianne Designs - this one is the Christmas version and I've layered him on some Marianne Papers and star die cuts- full list below.

I've coloured him and the background with my Promarkers - actually leaving enough space when I stamped to create this little scene!

Large Lattice Star Die - LR0369
Circle Star/Stars Die - CR1447

PFP Challenge Clean and Simple

Morning blog land -it's Tuesday so it's new challenge day at Passion for Promarkers with a lovely theme of Clean and Simple as chosen by our lovely Lisa. 

Now, you may know that I don't easily do Clean and Simple and so I'm quite pleased with my card  even though I have slightly cheated - scroll on down to see why!  
I've used this beautiful digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Ragged Kelly and I've coloured her to match some fab new papers from Marianne Designs called Brocante Winter - PK9165 - they really are gorgeous!
And here is why I've cheated - I've used this new Folding Snowflake die set from Sizzix to adorn my card - had to use it!!  Sorry (not sorry!).

Our sponsor this week is Di’s Digi Stamps who are offering one lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

Don't forget to check out the fabulous makes of the rest of the DT here at PFP HQ.

Thanks for visiting!

Introducing Oskar for my Dad's 80th

It was my Dad's 80th birthday a couple of weekends ago and this was the card I made for him using Introducing Oskar from Mo's Digital Pencil!  Dad can't quite believe he's 80 so Oskar's perplexed expression seemed quite appropriate!

Me and my sister Lu, and step-sister, Sam helping the old guy celebrate!!
Quite a straightforward design from me - think the thought bubble stamp is from Heidi Swapp!

Autumn Colours Challenge at Passion for Promarkers

Morning bloggers!  It's new challenge day at Passion for Promarkers and my turn to choose the challenge theme which is Autumn Colours.
 Never used to be a fan of orange but I'm liking it more and more these days!
For my card I've used Elke and Bear from Mo's Digital Pencil- now I love this image and thought I'd used it more recently but when I checked it was nearly 5 years ago!  So I'm glad I've rectified that!

The papers are mostly Lucille from Basic Grey, the sentiment is from PTI, and the flowers and frame dies are from Marianne Designs, details below:

Circular lace edge Frame die - LR0457
Flowers - CR1430
Branches with apples dies from set - CR1374

Our generous sponsor this week is Uniko Stamps who are offering one lucky winner 1 stamp set of their choice (which must be in stock) from their online store.
Don't forget to check out the makes of my fab teamies here - so lovely to see how others interpret the theme.  I can't wait to see what your create too!
