Passion for Promarkers – Cool Aqua and Cocoa

This week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers is to use the colours Cool Aqua and Cocoa on your image. The lovely Sam is our Guest Designer for this week, and our sponsors are Sugar Nellie, who are giving our lucky winner two of their gorgeous stamps.

For my card, I used a Magnolia stamp, and the papers are by HOTP and Colorbok.  The chocolate card is by SU, and I used my Martha Stewart Doiley punch to add some detail to the layout.  The mini flowers were made with a small cosmos punch, and some flower brads from my stash.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pale Pink.

Hair: Vanilla, Pastel Yellow, Tan.

Clothes, Boots and Hat: Cocoa, Henna, Cool Aqua, Sky Blue, Grey Green.

A Walk in the Woods

This week’s theme at Tilda and Friends is to use more than one character on your ATC.  I decided to use Tilda and Edwin from the Fall 2008 stamp kit, as it’s been a while since I inked up these little cuties.  They are, of course, coloured with Promarkers.  I used an HOTP background paper in autumn colours, and added punched leaves, in brown and copper, to complete the little scene.  Why not pop over to the challenge blog and see what the other DT girls have to show you?

Teal and Brown

‘Teal and Brown’ is the theme for the challenge this week at Tilda and Friends.  I love this colour combination, don’t you? I just couldn’t resist using another of Sugar Nellie’s ‘Gorjuss Girls’ on my ATC.  I coloured her with my Promarkers as usual. The background paper is by HOTP, and the gems and ribbons are from my stash. I’m looking  forward to seeing what you create with this popular colour scheme.

That’s Torn It!

This week’s theme at Tilda and Friends is to add something torn to your ATC.  I’ve used a cute Hanglar & Stanglar image on mine, and he is coloured with Ranger Distress Inks for a change.  The papers are scraps left over from other projects, and the brads are from HOTP.  I hope you’ll come and join our challenge this week.  There are some fab examples by the other DT members to inspire you over on the Tilda and Friends blog.


Elzybells Challenge 18

The Elzybells Challenge for this fortnight is to make a matching interior for your card, and also to have a coordinating envelope.  I chose the ‘In the Dog House’ stamp for my image – isn’t this little pup adorable?!  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut out it with the Nestabilities Labels One set, then I cut a larger label in blue to make a frame for the image. The papers and blue card are from HOTP, and I used a Martha Stewart border punch to embellish the blue edges. The sentiment is from Elzybells’ Mini Tags, and is set in a Nestabilities die-cut circle and scalloped circle.  I added a light green grosgrain ribbon to complete the card.


Here is the inside of my card; it mirrors the front, but without the stamped image or embellishments.


And this is my matching envelope.  Part of the image was die-cut with a smaller die from the same label set as I used on the card, and the blue border was made with the Martha Stewart punch and some matching paper.


I hope that you like my card and matching envelope for this challenge.  Pop back on Friday for some more tempting goodies from Elzybells!

Tilda and Friends – Recipe

Do you love trying out new recipes? Then why not try this one from Tilda and Friends?  Our challenge this week is to use one ribbon, two flowers and three buttons on your ATC.  Here is my ATC, using one of the Gorjuss Girls stamps from Sugar Nellie.  I coloured her with Promarkers, and then cut her out before sticking the image to the base card, which had been covered with HOTP paper.  I added a dusky pink taffeta ribbon, two Prima flowers and three tiny buttons in toning colours.  The sentiment was made on the PC.  I do hope you’ll come and join us in trying out the recipe this week.


Shady Lady

Shady Lady is the theme for this week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends.  My interpretation of this was to use shades of one colour on my ATC, and in this case I chose blue.  I coloured Paris Tilda using blue shades of Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks, plus hair and skin tones too, of course!  The DP is by HOTP, and the charms are from my stash.


Do visit us at Tilda and Friends to see more fabulous examples of  Shady Ladies by the Design Team. We would also love to see your interpretations of this theme.

Two New Cards

Here are a couple of cards that I made to send to two very dear friends.

On the first I used Stamping Bella’s adorable Eloise Greengrass, from the Chichiboulie Fairies range.  The DP is Euphoria by Basic Grey, and the lilac cardstock is from my stash, as are the flowers and brads. The sentiment is by Whiff of Joy, and the design is based on Katharina’s wonderful sketch #32. 


For this card I went back to my Prisma pencils temporarily.  I used Magnolia’s Tilda with roses for my image, and DP by Bella Press.  The large brad and ‘friend’ sentiment rub-on are from HOTP.  I used Martha Stewart’s doiley punch to punch all the scallops, and the flower, ribbon and flat backed pearls are from my stash.


Something Sticky…

Well, this is the theme for this week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends.  You are asked to put something sticky: a sticker, a peel-off, and so on, on your ATC.  I used a sticky-backed ribbon, which I always find very useful for ATCs.  Just for good measure, there is also a sticky-backed flower embellishment.  This travel Tilda is so adorable, isn’t she?  I coloured her and her cases with Promarkers, and popped her onto some ‘vintage’ DP by HOTP, which I edged with brown ink to age it a little more.  The ticket stamp is by Autumn Leaves, and this has also been given the aged treatment.  The rest of the DT and our special guest, Anesha, have some gorgeous work to inspire you on the blog.  So come along , get out your sticky stuff, and come and play!
