Party Time!

My second post today!
The challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers is '4 legged friends' so of course I had to make a card with this stamp from one of my favourite sets. I have the bird crazy set and the cat set as well, and use them a lot.
I stamped onto a piece of DP and again onto some specialty (for markers) card. After colouring with
O345 saddle brown
O427 cinnamon
O727 caramel
R766 molten red
B346 azure
I fussy cut and glued into position. The Never too old is from Art Impressions and the happy birthday is from an old set that I have lost the name from. I added some sparkly gems too.

Hello and welcome to my blog

Todays card uses some very old music torn at an angle for the background. I have used a craft individuals stamp for my focal image and coloured with promarkers from the pastel range. I added some soft lemon ribbon overlayed with some soft green lace for trim

Birthday Boy

Hello everyone
Today's card is for one of my grandsons, whose birthday is today. I have cut the design with my Silhouette and added his initials to the sail. He has been learning sailing for the last 2 years, so I thought this would be appropriate.

Sympathy card


I recently needed a sympathy card to send to a friend. I masked off an area and sponged on distress inks to make a background. The birds and the sentiment are from A SU set called Wetlands

Today's card is all about travel, something that we now find difficult to do as the flights are so long from New Zealand.
The base is from a masterboard that I painted some time ago, and not sure what acrylics I used. The smaller stamped pieces are from a Recollections set called 'Going Places'
I handmade the tag from some kraft card and used a stamp that I bought in USA by Hampton Art, embossed with black filigree ep

Make It Pink

Hello and welcome to my blog

Today's card features a sentiment by Lawn fawn, the flower is an unknown brand, and if I remeber correctly the spots are from The Artistic Stamper.
I have used the following Promarkers
Pastel Pink R738
Dusky Rose R327
Antique Pink R346
I stamped and fussycut the flowers seperately and raised them with mounting tape

Hello and welcome to my blog
Todays card is a Lavinia image which I flipped to look the other way. Layered onto some pretty pink striped dp and then onto a pink card base. I stamped the sentiment down the side and added 3 pink sequins. Also coloured the wings and flowers with a pastel pink Promarker, and then coated with clear WOS, which does not show in the scan

B & W + 1

Hi everyone

The challenge at Allsorts this week is for black and white plus one. I have used a geometric background die in black and layered onto a white base card. My butterfly (from an old Martha Stewart set) is stamped in Mermaid Lagoon DI onto turquoise card and embossed with dye boss ep. I left some of the shapes in to give the butterfly some ground
