Beautiful flower stamp and die combo from Marianne Designs

Hi there, I back to jumping on the Marianne Inspiration Blog today -sharing my card made with one of a series of  stunning Floral Stamp and Die sets released this month.

You can see a run-through on the Marianne Inspiration Blog here as well as lots of other inspiration for their latest products from the design team world wide.

I've used the following products.

Dahlia Flower Stamp and Die Set – TC0892- NEW!
Dragon Fly Die Set – CR1582- NEW!
Anja’s Slimline Border DL Die set – LR0752- NEW!
Big/Little Tag Die Set – CR1353
Sentiment –MM1639
Diamond Gem – JU937

I love the new slimline border set for DL cards too - so elegant!  I also wanted to use a more recent tag die set but can I find them - no!  I've lost control of my craft room a little since my broken ankle and am only now getting the upper hand!

Have a great Weekend and a Happy  UK Mother's Day for Sunday to all the brilliant mums out there!

Anything Spring at Passion for Markers

Hello there bloggers - I'm really starting to get more active with my not-so broken ankle now - it's been nearly nine weeks and I feel that life is starting to get back to something resembling normal.
Which is just as well as it is my turn to choose the theme of this week's challenge at Passion for Markers.  As sprng is now officially sprung I've gone with a theme of Anything Spring - and nothing says spring to me quite like a vase or jug or even jam jar of flowers!
The image is from this week's sponsors,  Pattie's Creations, and the image is called Watering Can with Cosmos

I also love lilac and green together which I've taken from these beautiful French Antiques papers by Marianne - full list of their products below.

Marianne Products Used

Papers - French Antiques - PK9167
Frame Die Set - LR0692
Dragonfly  Die- CR1582 - NEW!
Tag and Sentiment Die set - CS1029
Small Cosmos Flower Die - LR0730.

I love the tiny flower die -it comes from a frame set that has lots of lovely little dies that are so useful separately as well as part of the whole set!  Oh, and the cute little rabbit is from Charlie and Paulchen, a German company.

My fab teamies have made some beautiful creations to inspire you here- you could win some fabulous images from Patties's Creations so I hope you will come and join us - just remember  you must use markers of some sort, Alcohol, Watercolour, felt pens but they must be markers.  

I look forward to visiting you and seeing your makes with our theme.
Hugs, Juliexx

Passion for Markers - Clean and Simple

Morning everyone - well, this is the first card I've made since breaking my ankle 7 weeks ago as it's only now that I can get in my craft room.  I'm taking it easy as I still need to keep my ankle elevated and it can be a bit uncomfortable trying to craft even with my foot up on a stool!

Still, it is so lovely to be back in my room which is a bit of a mess I must confess!  Today's card is for our latest challenge at Passion for Markers as set by our lovely Sue - with the perfect theme for me of Clean And Simple as I start  crafting again!  

As we're being sponsored by Polkadoodles we've been lucky enough to work with a Polkadoodle image - this lovely lady is Ruby Birthday Cake.

I've also used my trusty Marianne products, details below.

Marianne Products Used

Lace Edged Frame - CR1563

Have a fabulous crafty week!
