Passion for Promarkers Use a Die

Love our new theme at Passion for Promarkers this week - Use a Die (or two or three LOl!).

I've been waiting to use these fabulous new seaside themed dies from Marianne this month - aren't they great.  I have used an old lighthouse die by Marianne but have listed the new one below too - as it is gorgeous!
I also love this mermaid image from Mo's Digital Pencil - this is Meeya - such a sweetie!  And isn't this new telescope die from Marianne fantastic - I've seen it used to such great effect in blogland - check out the Marianne Blog here for some inspiration and more information on the latest releases.

Anyway back to the Promarker Challenge - I've listed the green colour combo I used below.

Mo's Digital Pencil Roses in Vase

No reason or person in mind for today's card - I just fancied colouring this beautiful bouquet of roses - appropriately enough called Roses in Vase from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Flying Pandas anyone!

Today's card is for the Marianne Inspiration Blog here- lots of fab ideas and makes from the Marianne design teams and designers.

I've used the new Panda stamp and die set as the stars of my card - there's a full run through on the blog post.
Just thought I'd point out one thing though - I'd stuck everything down but then decided that I needed that tree border behind the floating panda - so I cut the border then used the panda die to cut his leg shapes into the border so it would look liked the border was behind the panda.  Should have done it too for the tip of the party hat of the standing panda but then that would mean I know what I'm doing!!!

List of  Marianne Products below.

Eline's Pandas - EC0179
Clouds - CR1402
Tree Border - LR0524
Sentiment - Group Hugs set - CS1011

Sympathy cards

It's so difficult making a sympathy card but I think a poppy image is a very good place to start.  This stamp and sentiment is from a Stampin Up set  and the script background is a new Marianne mixed media set - French Script- MM1627.

Off to my craft room now as the  weather is pretty pants here so can't be in the garden.
