Morning all you happy people! How are you doing? Hope your having a great week and that the sun is shining on you! Doing my best to cheer every one on here. LoL
It's midweek again and that means a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter and this time we are really going easy, and that has a reason. Stay tuned for that and have a look at the Paper Shelter blog on Friday. For now you have to enjoy our "anything goes" theme that will be on for the coming week.
Follow me regular you know that I have two sons with lots of friends and that means lots of boys cards. This is one in a long row of them. This was for a friend of my youngest son. I love these cheerful little guys that Veronica and Pedro draws. They are fun, charming and keep putting a smile on my face.
This image is called Extreme! He is coloured with my Letraset markers and paired up with some great designer papers from Echo Park. What would I do without that brand when it comes to boy's cards. Always fun and cheerful they are. I have use one of the recent sketches from Papertake Weekly as just love them. They are really made for use over and over again. No extra embellishments here just die cut star with the birthday boy's age on it. It doesn't need more, and well I wasn't really in decorating mood either. LoL
I hope to see you come and join us and see what the rest of the gals has been up to. There is some great inspiration for you all to have a look at.
Morning everyone! It's a new week and a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and yours truly is hosting it with the theme of "Make it Digital" - in other words, use a digital image together with digital papers or use digital papers with a stamped image. That's up to you, or why not use both on your creation?
As always playing with us over at Passion for Promarkers means you need to use your Markers and aqua markers from Letraset to be in the prize draw. Sponsoring us this challenge is Polkadoodles. The prize is the image I have used on my card.
Polkadoodles - 5 winners each receiving a Dollie Daydream 'Glitz' digistamp
And now the card. lol Starting off with the image used from Polka doodles and I had no clue on what to do. Looked at her for a while and decided to go with a green and blue card. I love the markers special edition from 2012. They are so lovely and the blue ones especially. I would call it "åskblå" in Swedish, that would be something like thunder blue in English, that dark almost warm blue that the clouds get a really bad rainy day. It's kind of ironic that I love this colour as I suffer from Bronto fobi which is un natural fear of thunder. LoL
Anyway, back to the card colouring her and enjoying that I also knew what designer papers to use. Yepp, you are so right! It was time to dig out those lovely packs from Bildmålarna again. Well, no digging required, they are always on my desk. As there is a big peacock feather in her outfit I decided to go with blue and green for this card. I was a really good gal and used up some scraps of the dp's as well as some old gem stones from BoBunny. A metal corner, a pin, a butterfly charm and my usual flower cluster. A feather too of course to complement the one the digi, and that's why I used the metal pin the way I did, to pick up the look of the peacock one on the image.
Also added a bigger version of the gem stone to the image's hair piece to make it pop a bit. A border die from Memory box called pearl lace is also used. And as always some lovely pearls from Bunny Zoe's. Not to forget, I have had my fingers in the treasure box again, the one filled with lace that I got a little while from my teamie over at the Paper Shelter. Thanks again Gail! It's Christmas each time I open it up.
Morning everyone! Hope you are feeling a lot better than I am. It's so moist outside that my body is really in a bad mood, well pain. Once again, I am only feeling one half of my left arm and it's driving me nuts. It's like one half is a sleep and the other awake.
Well, I have managed to get a card done for the TPS challenge using the lovely image There's a fairy in my tea. Very cute and lovely. Great fun to colour too. :) It's done with my normal collection of Letraset markers.
The image is paired up with designer papers from Bildmålarna, isn't that a surprise? This time the papers are from the Soft collection. And as the theme of the week is "Punches and dies" I have used plenty of those too. There is also some lovely laces added to the card in a really soft pink colour that I got from my dear teamie Gail. Thanks again! A left over piece of pearl string in one corner, some post mark stamps is also used to fill some empty space around the image.
I am also having a little guest designer on my blog this week. My five year old son. After weeks of nagging to make a card with the "How U doing?" image, I finally caved in and let Philip have the image coloured ages ago. And this is what he came up with, using a lot of my left overs, pearls and card candy. I am so glad that I have saved some of the designer papers that comes with stamp magazines for the kids to use. It doesn't get that expensive to have them crafting then. LoL
As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice.Don't miss out on this! You have plenty of stunning images to chose from and last night there was a new image released called "Hey Baby!" It's to die for, so do pop on over to the store to take a look at it, and maybe treat yourself to some goodies. Ok, time to lay down and try to rest that bloody shoulder and arm of mine as I really want to get back to school tomorrow. So tired of this pain and numbness that is haunting me. Love n hugs Marie
Good afternoon everyone. Sorry that my Passion for Promarkers post is late today. All of last week is a big blur in my mind as it has been very painful with tons of well, pain in my neck, left shoulder and left side of my back. I've been working hard to get back on track with my studies. Almost there now, but still in pain. At least I am not feeling like I've got the tummy flu anymore. No meds. this week, I have to handle the pain so that I can start over again. Hate being in pain, but then I have the fun of crafting even if it didn't work too well last week. I am actually quite proud that I manage to make a card for this week's lovely challenge over at PFP.
I have used the wonderful new paper pad from Bildmålarna called cute collection. Lovely pack of spring pastel papers. Will be using them quite a bit I think, just as the new sweet images. But this week however I have chosen to use an older image from the Paper Shelter. I'm sorry but I don't remember what it's called. But it's cute, right? Of cours as this is a Promarker challenge I have used my big bunch of Letraset markers to colour the image. It's a really simple card, but it's good to do those as well sometimes, cards that isn't drowning in embellishments and flowers like mine does from time to time.
This is what it says on the Passion for Promarker blog about the challenge
