Passion for Markers Christmas Challenge

Another Christmas card today  for our new challenge at Passion for Markers with that theme chosen by our lovely Auntie Sue!  And as we're being sponsored by the fabulous Lili of the Valley I've chose this gorgeous cutie from my rubber stamp  collection from them!  One of my favourite of theirs I think and not used enough!  

I've also use some great new Christmas products from Marianne Designs - including the new Triangle Stencil which makes it really easy to create this shape of card and layer it up a bit.  A full list of Marianne goodies used, new and old, below.

Passion for Markers - Things with Wings

Today's card is for our new challenge at Passion for Markers - Things With Wings is the challenge theme and we're being sponsored by the lovely Colour of Love who's image this is - Wild Gypsy Roses.

Now, your image could be a bird or butterfly or even a unicorn or a plane -  anything with wings.  But I wanted to use this gorgeous image so I've simply added a couple of Dragonfly die cuts - as long as there is something winged on your make - I've also used a feather die from Marianne Designs which is technically part of a wing!!  😅  My list of Marianne products is below - of course, I've coloured her with Copics and the papers are Magnolia Grove from Kaisercraft.

Marianne Products Used

Dragonfly dies - CR1582
Leaf Frond dies - LR0769
Feather die - CR1412
Arrow Word Die - COL1458

You can check out the gorgeous makes of my teamies here at PFM HQ then I hope you will be inspired to come and join in the challenge.  You could be the lucky winner of  three digi images from Colour of Love !

A little Christmas card to cool you down!

I did enjoy making this frosty Christmas card using the latest products in my DT pack from Marianne Designs.  I do love these cute gnomes and as the new release come with dies to match, it is so easy to make a fabulous little scene.  I also love the DL trees- I've used them in their full glory but of course they can be trimmed down to fit any size card!

I've listed below all the Marianne goodies, new and old, that I've used and you can also see further details of my make on the Marianne Inspiration blog here.

Lantern Gnome – CS1106 - NEW!
House Die Set – LR0771 - NEW!
DL Tree Dies – LR0772 - NEW!
Dl Frame – CR1537
Swedish Winter Papers – PK9159
Happy Holidays Sentiment – CS1009
Tag Die – CR1510

I think I'm a bit behind with making my Xmas cards this year, so you may well see some more gnome home makes from me!

Dies and/or Punches - new challenge at Passion for Markers

Love the theme of our new challenge at Passion for Markers - use your dies and/punches - right up my street.  I've used some fab Marianne dies, including these flower dies that I've not used in a while.  And, my favourite DL dies for the mats - details below.  

Marianne Products Used

Flowers - CR1430
DL Stitched Frames - CR1537
Stitched Wavy Border Dies - CR1361

The image is a  Wonky Tonk Girl from Tracey Easson - and the little flowers are from the same stamp set - Day Dreamer- the range can be found here at Which Craft.  The papers are Introspection from Basic Grey.

My teamies have made some fabulous cards with images from our sponsors this week, All Dressed Up, so check them out here.

All Dressed Up are offering the lucky winner two digi images of their choice from the store.  Please remember to use your markers AND tell us which ones you've used- it's such a shame to find that a beautifully made card either hasn't used markers or not told us which ones they've used.

Hope you enjoy the challenge.
