A sweet baby card with new Mo's Digital Pencil images!

Have you seen the release of the cutest baby images over at Mo's Digital Pencil - so sweet!  This one is called Flower Baby and you can find her here.

The papers are Pink Paislee and the flowers and leaves are from some really old but really favourite, Marianne Designs die sets.  I've used the round circular die from one set and the flower/leaf combos that come with both sets.  Details below.

Marianne Products Used

Round and Square bow edged die sets - CR1248/CR1249
Bookmark Tag die set - CR1510

The little enamel dots are also by Marianne and of course there's some card candy on there! (I don't think I'll ever run out of these!)  And the sentiment is from PTI.

The sun is shining here today and it looks like the weekend is going to be fabulous too, hope it's lovely wherever you are.

A bit of gardening.

Hi there.  This is Lottie Land Girl from Wonky Tonk stamps by Tracy Easson - isn't she just the prettiest!  And I love the accent stamps such as the shelf behind her which I added by masking of the main image.  She's coloured with Copics and teamed up with some pretty My Mind's Eye papers.  The little spade is a new die from Marianne Designs - CR1541.  The sentiment tags are cut with a Stampin Up punch and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from PTI.

I don't know about you but  I get very inky fingers when crafting and I am not a tidy crafter, so ended up getting ink smudges on my coloured image panel.  So I had to place the sentiment and the spade over them to cover up but I think I got away with it!!

Might actually do a bit of gardening this afternoon - if it stays dry!

Have a good week!

Shout Out and a Case!

I was sorting through my images from Mo's Digital Pencil and realised that I'd not coloured this little lovely, Shout Out, and think I've had her a while!! After I'd coloured her, I thought of this sentiment I've had from an Inkadinkadoo set, which works perfectly with this image.  I then realised I was channelling the make of my Passion for Markers teamie, Lisa MacVicar, that was for our Special Anniversary challenge over on Passion for Markers challenge here.  So I decided to go for the Case which I love as it's a great way to channel some inspiration!  You can check out Lisa's card here, which I love, by the way!

I've 'crayoned' in the rainbows on the wall picture which I kind of like.  
I've use a Marianne Stitched border die, CR1361 for the cloud edge and my little clouds are an old Memory Box set.

I must just tell you about a little conversation I had with my 5 year old granddaughter, Violet, the other day.  She loves my craft room and always asks to come and do some arting with me!  I gave her a picture to colour in that was from a magazine competition and they just wanted it coloured in and returned. Violet didn't show much interest but a little later she said, Nanny, can you just colour it in and then put my name at the bottom!!  It has made me laugh!

I have a clean of our holiday let to do today which takes ages now, with all the additional Covid steps we have in place.  But, we are fully booked until November so we're doing something right! 
Enjoy your day.

Daisy, Daisy

I've been playing with my latest favourite stamps and dies from Marianne!  It's my favourite DL Die set and this time I've used the smaller oval frames that come with the set.  I've then used my favourite Daisy stamp from this fab new Wildflower stamp set and then, for the top card, I've used my favourite Daisy die from one of the Wildflower die sets.  Full list of items used below.

As I was playing, I was trying different mixes of the papers and card stock, so as I had left overs, I made the bottom card out of those.

That's all for now - got to make dinner!

PFM Favourite Colours

Morning folks - we have a new challenge over on Passion for Markers this week, with a great theme of Favourite Colours.  Now, mine change constantly but I do love teal and pink together so decided on that for now!
My image is a gorgeous new one from Mo Digital Pencil, Little Fairy Maxi.   I've also used another favourite from Marianne Designs, the DL frame - so useful. And, a new fancy frame die set that is part of the April 21 release - details below.  A few flowers and a few sparkles (again from Marianne)  and this little lovely is ready to go!

Billy Boy sending you flowers

This little cutie is Billy Boy, one of the newest images available at Mo's Digital Pencil. What a sweetie.

I've coloured him with a mix of Promarkers and Copics and a made  a muted background with a cloud stencil and sponge.  I've also stippled a few flower patches with my promarkers.

The papers are from the new Rainbow Paper set from Marianne Designs, and the flowers are from the stunning wildflower design sets from Marianne, details below.  Normally, I cut out the flowers in coloured card but this time I cut them in white and inked up the flowers and leaves - love the soft colours!

The Singing, Cycling Postman

Love this image by Tracy Easson -part of the Wonky Tonk range here at Which Craft. Perfect for a friend who is a postman AND loves his cycling!  Not sure about the singing though?

Coloured with Promarkers and  a bit of inking for the background.  Think this will make great Christmas cards too!

Had my second jab this morning, happy happy!!
