Pretty Pastels

 Hi guys,

It is time for a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers and this time the optional twist is to USE PASTEL COLOURS.

I have used 'For You' by our sponsor Hetty Clare. I used a pastel blue 6x6 base card. I die-cut a heart using X-cut nesting dies and pink glitter card. After colouring the image I fussy cut this out and added to the heart. To finish I heat embossed a chipboard heart using lilac embossing powder, added a foiled sentiment topper and some pearls.

To colour the image I used the following Promarkers - Metallic Green, Baby Pink, Lavender, Blue Pearl, Shale, Satin, Tawny Owl, Grey Squirrel and Peach.

Purples and greens - fav colours

 It is time for our first challenge of 2023 over at I Love Promarkers - and we have a great twist for this one ~ Use Your Favourite Colours.

I used an angel image I had already in my stash from Sheepski who are our sponsors for this challenge. (I couldn't use a new image as I was unable to print due to an issue with my printer).

I used two papers from my stash, one of which was already embossed, so I am unsure of the embossing folder used.

I coloured the angel using Promarkers and then fussy cut the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

KRAFT creations

 Happy New Year everybody - here's hoping for good health and wellbeing for all.

We have our first challenge of 2023 starting over at Moving Along With The Times (MAWTT), which is to use KRAFT card.

I am also combining this post with our reminder post for Creative Moments, where our optional twist is still Christmas or Celebrations. Although I have done a Thank You card I believe it fits with the Christmas theme as now is time for the Christmas thanks :D.

For my reminder card I used the same image as for my main card and fussy cut it once again. I used a Christmas foiled KRAFT card. Then I layered up a papermania decoupage of baking stuff in a kitchen, which I think works perfectly with the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
KRAFT #662 Anything Goes
AlphabetChallenge - T for Thank You

I used the same papermania decoupage kit for this card, but this time I used the hen house and made a new home card.

For the final card I decided to use one of my many Bugaboo images. I do miss this shop, they had so many fun images, but I am thankful I still have lots that I can use. I left it uncoloured as I thought colouring the image would detract from the foiled KRAFT card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
CraftyCatz #618 Christmas
CraftyHazelnuts #627 Christmas or New Year
AYLI - Anything Goes for Christmas
ABCChristmas - Y for Youngsters
WinterWonderland - Anything Christmas

Thanks for looking,

Steampunk Calendar

 We had a new challenge start yesterday at I Love Promarkers, which is an anything goes theme.

I used Bartholomew from our sponsor - SheepSkiDesigns.

I coloured him using promarkers - metallic red gold and gold, khaki, black, salmon pink, royal blue and a combination of slate and french navy. I layered him onto an iridescent blue card and then onto gold glitter paper. I then layered the calendar in the same way to make a hanging calendar.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Leaving Luck

 A colleague at work has just handed in her notice so I have made this leaving card for her using an image I had stored in my stash.

I had previously coloured the image using promarkers, so I used x-cut nesting ovals to cut the image, leaving a straight edge to go against the side of the card. I layered a glitter card onto the card base, that matched the icing colour. I then added a paper case style border down one side. To finish I added the image and the foiled sentiment, according to the sketch below.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

 Yup it is December - so our theme at MAWTT is all about Christmas.

I used some Anita's decooupage toppers (that annoyingly have to be cut manually), peel-off sentiment and foiled backing card from a magazine.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CRAFT #660 Christmas Present

Love is all around

 Good morning,

We have a new challenge starting today at I Love Promarkers, with the optional theme of love and romance.

I have used Love from our sponsor - ching-chou kuik to make a calendar easel card

I coloured her using my promarkers and then fussy cut. I used a patterned paper from a Forever Friends paper pad which has glitter hearts to add panels to the card base. Over the bottom one I use the calendar tab to create the stand for the easel. I also added two fabric hearts as when the calendar is being used there will still need to be a holder for the top part of the card. I then cut a heart out of the same paper using X-cut scalloped nesting hearts, and layered this onto the top portion of the card. To finish I added my girl.
