Winnie Birthday Easel

 

Hello,
In recent weeks I've become a fan of the digi stamps at Polka Doodles, especially Winnie. When we bought some digi's, I came up with creating a large 8x8 twisted easel card. I merged three Winnie images together to create my image, colouring them with a mix of spectrum noirs and Promarkers. The image is 6x6. 
I used Nitwit collections friendship papers, matted on white and light yellow. I added a doily, lace, flowers and a sentiment to finish.

The Paper Shelter: Birthday

 

Hello,
It's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and this weeks challenge is Birthday. Easy right?
For my card I used the beautiful enchanted butterflies. I love butterflies, I even have butterfly wallpaper in my room so this image really stood out to me.
I coloured the image with Promarkers.
The papers came from an old wild rose studio paper pad, matted on white.
I added a lovely butterfly die cut design up the side, by tattered lace, and some flowers and finished with a sentiment. 

Challenges:
For me its Promarkers. Although my colouring varies between Spectrum noirs and Promarkers, I always tend to go back to Promarkers. These are the first markers I ever had for crafting and I've continued to use them, getting better at shading and blending. 

I Love Promarkers: Get well soon

 
Hello,
This weeks challenge at I love Promarkers is Get well soon.
We are sponsored by Ikes Art and for my card I used the image hydrangea basket.
I matched it with nitwit collections grin and bear it papers, matted on white. I kept the card simple, finishing with a sentiment.

House Mouse Multiple Circles

  

Hello,
I'm back today to share my second card for the House mouse challenge which this fortnight was anything goes or multiple images. As I mentioned in my last post featuring my first card for this challenge, this really inspired me to search my stamps. I've really enjoyed using more than one image.
I used two of my favourites on this card, the first being part of the image from the stamp, flower arranging and the second being this little cutie, Mudpie holding a flower. This is only a small image but it has always been a favourite.
I coloured them both with Promarkers.
I used my favourite circle dies, matting them on orange.
The paper came from a magazine freebie and is actually embossed with the folder that came with it but that isn't very visable on the photo.
I finished with one of the mousy sentiments and added some pink twine.

I hope you've enjoyed my mousy make!

House Mouse Birthday Wishes

 

Hello,
The challenge at House mouse and friends this fortnight is use multiple images, something I don't always think to do yet have plenty of images that can be mixed and matched together. This theme inspired me and I got to finding out stamps that would go together straight away.
I created this birthday card using one of my favourite larger images, mice with cupcake (and a full belly!). Then used two of the smaller birthday themed stamps, coloured with Promarkers.
 Nearly all my favourite House mouse images include one of the mice with cake so I had to make a birthday card featuring one of my favourites.
The paper, matted on Brown, came from a 8x8 paper pad from The Works. I added ribbon, a bow and a sentiment to finish.

Oddball fairy

I have something different to share today featuring an image from Oddball art. It's the first time I have used an image from there but I have to say I really like this brand and can definitely see me using more of their images.
I used Sai the fairy for this card, coloured with Promarkers and spectrum noirs.
I matched it with prima marketing's Rose quartz collection, matted on black.
I also faux stitched around the layers and image.
I finished with flowers, lace, pearls, a heart charm and a sentiment. I also added glitter to her wings.

The Paper Shelter: Girl Power

 

Hello,
I'm a little bit late with my paper shelter card this week as  I've been taking a break due to an viral infection. Luckily it has now cleared up so I'm glad to be back crafting again.
This weeks challenge is Girl power so we want to see all your girly/women themed creations.
For my card I used the image The glamourous girls, coloured with Promarkers.
I created a twisted easel using papers and die cut sentiments from an old scrapbooking pad. All matted on white.
The sentiment says friendship is one mind in two bodies. I also die cut a doily in black.

Our new challenge over at Simply magnolia is add pearls.
I made a baby crossfold card using the stork image, coloured with Promarkers.
I die cut my stork and added to a fancy oval then added pearls all around the edges.
The papers are from Prima marketing's heaven sent range, as well as the flowers.
I created a crossfold so I could have the hidden message tag inside. I added ribbon and lace and some rose ribbon to finish.
