Pocket Full of Posies – Challenge #4

Ayelet is hosting the challenge at Pocket Full of Posies this week, and the theme is ‘All that Glitters’, so don’t forget to add plenty of bling to your card, as well as the compulsory flowers. Our lovely sponsors for this fortnight are The Pixie Cottage.

Here is my card for this challenge. Continuing my love affair with the Lili of the Valley stamps, I’m using one of their cutie-pie little ladies as my image. I’ve used Promarkers to colour her as usual, and added some touches of glitter here and there on the little scene. I believe that the gorgeous glittery paper is by MME, but it was just a loose sheet in my stash, so don’t quote me on that! The sentiment is by Whiff of Joy, and all the cardstock is by Bazzill. The flowers are rosebuds (very similar to the Prima ones) from my local craft shop, to which I’ve also added a dusting of fine crystal glitter.

Thank you for taking a look at my card!

Pocket Full of Posies – Challenge #3

Welcome to the third Pocket Full of Posies challenge! This week we are being sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads. Di has some fab downloads, so do go and have a nosey at her site. It was my turn to choose the theme for the challenge this time, and I chose the colour combination of Aqua and Peach.

Here is my card. For the image, I decided on one of the pretty, older, stamps from Sugar Nellie. This one hadn’t been inked a lot, so I thought that it was time to give her another airing. She is coloured with Promarkers as usual, and the floral paper is by My Mind’s Eye. I’m afraid that I can’t remember the origin of the other paper. The cardstock is by Bazzill. The large and tiny peach flowers are handmade, using Tim Holtz’s ‘Grunge Flowers’ die, and the aqua ones are from Prima’s e-line collection.  They have all been spritzed with glimmer mist, and lightly touched with stickles just around the petal edges.

Thanks for taking a peek at my card!  I do hope you will be tempted to join us for the new challenge. 

PFOP – A Sketch!

For our Pocket Full of Posies challenge this week we have a great sketch by Sandie  for you to follow. Our sponsors this week are Cardz’n’Scrapz, and they are giving our winner a copy of Tim Holtz’s book ‘A Compendium of Curiosities’. Our Guest Designer is Marcea Watkins.

Sandie’s sketch

Here is the card that I made using the sketch. I used designer papers from My Mind’s Eye and K & Co’s Wild Raspberry collection, and the image and sentiment are both by Lili of the Valley. I coloured the image with Promarkers, and sponged the edge the oval with Distress Ink by Ranger in Broken China. My floral decorations are all from my stash, and I added a sparkle to them by Glimmer Misting the flowers with Iridescent Gold before attaching them to the card.

I hope that you enjoyed our first challenge, and thank you to all of you who made a card – they were all wonderful!  I’m sure that you’ll love playing along this fortnight too, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries based on Sandie’s sketch!

Passion for Promarkers – Two Images

Passion For Promarkers – A Recipe

This week’s challenge theme is a recipe – three shapes (not including your basic card shape), two papers and one ribbon, as chosen by the lovely Denise. Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are donating a five pack of Promarkers to our winner.

Here is my card and, as usual, you’ll find my colouring recipe underneath. I used another image from Charmed Cards and Crafts’ Pixie Chicks 1 collection, which I coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from My Mind’s Eye, cardstock by Stampin’ Up and Bazzill, and the flowers are from my stash. I swear that the ribbon on my card looked like a fetching rusty brown last night, and it was a surprise to find that it was in fact a raspberry colour in the daylight this morning – apologies for the slight clash!
