Passion for Markers Things with Wings

Our new challenge starts today over at a Passion for Promarkers with a great theme of Things with Wings as chosen by our lovely Marlene.  I've gone with a fairly simple design with this Stamping Bella image which I've fussy cut and laid over a print I made with this Hero Arts background stamp a while ago.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up and then I added a few dots of highlighter pen in her hair and some gold pearl drops for extra dimension.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Di's Digi Stamps who are offering our lucky winner a $6 voucher for their store.

You can check out the winged beauties of my PFM teamies here then I do hope you'll come and join in the challenge.

Spring is Coming Marianne Designs

It was lovely to make a spring-themed card using the February release from Marianne Designs.  I absolutely  love the new barrel die set.  I then decided to make a gift topper for the gift bags - I thought it would be nice to fill with mini eggs for Easter.  I've not brought any yet though as they wouldn't last till then!

Full list of Marianne products used below and you can also see a step by step guide over on the Marianne Inspiration blog here.  Don't forget to look at your older products too - there are often small dies in the sets that you can use - this is true for the clouds, sun, and die cut bows!
