KENNY'S HUG


I used papers from 3 different paper packs for this card:  The background turquoise is from the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden pack, the purple is from the DCWV Lilac Love pack, and the blue is from the DCWV Zodiac pack.  The image is a KennyK digi, called Hug.  I have coloured them with ProMarkers.  The frame around them is from the Ornamental Iron Cricut cartridge.  The doily is Dovecraft.  I've also added a Prima 'Say it in Crystals' swirl, a strip of Simplicity heart lace, and a few odd pearls. My flowers are all 49 and Market.

THE AVIATOR


For this card I chose to use a pre-coloured digi from The Paper Shelter, called The Aviator.  He has been cut out on my Cricut.  My papers are from the DCWV Adventurer pack.  I have used a Ruby Rock-it stitching stamp on all the papers.  The gorgeous plane corner is an Amy Design die cut.  The starry border was done using a Martha Stewart punch.  I used the punched out stars for the tag.  The tag itself was cut using a Tim Holtz die, and stamped with a Hot Off the Press sentiment stamp.  The compass is an Eyelet Outlet brad, and the other decorative goodies are Bo Bunny brads.


The starry border section is on puffy pads, leaving a perfectly sized cavity for the tag to slip into.

FLOWER FAIRY


This weekend I went on a bit of a shopping spree at Time for Tea Designs.  I already had this gorgeous digi, called Flower Fairy, but I couldn't resist buying a few more.  They are just SO cute!

I have coloured her with ProMarkers.  My papers and the sentiment are from the Heartfelt Creations Wildwood Cottage collection.  The 4 butterflies are a set of dies by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The flowers are 49 and Market; Tim Holtz and Prima.  I've also added some cheesecloth, lace and a border of pearls around the image.

CATHARINE


After all the male cards recently, I thought it was time to pop some 'soft' into the mix.  

I have used a Paper Shelter pre-coloured digi, called Catharine.  My papers are all from the Maja Design (of course) Vintage Spring Basics pack.  I've added lots of lace - some just popping out behind distressed edges of paper above them, and some cheesecloth.  My flowers are an assortment including KaiserCraft, 49 and Market, and Petaloo.  I've also added a few pearl swirls (Bella! Bling), and little random pearls all over.

SO CLASSY!


For this male card I chose to use a pre-coloured Paper Shelter digi, called So Classy!  I love The Paper Shelter!  The images are gorgeous, and they're such great value for money.  With pre-coloured digis and background paper included in the price you'd pay for just the black and white image elsewhere, you (read ' I ') feel like you just have to own them all!  I don't often use pre-coloured digis, but I recently printed off that I own, so I'd like to eventually use them all.  

Back to this card:

My papers are from the Authentique Rugged pack.  The tag was cut on the Cameo.  The pocket watch is a Jolee's embellishment.

Here are a few close-ups:

I have used a Paper Shelter pre-coloured digi, called Smart Is The New Sexy.  My papers are from the DCWV Watercolor Ombre pack.  I made a bow using a strip of lace, and I've added a Dovecraft doily and a Want 2 Scrap gem swirl.  My flowers are 49 and Market and Prima.

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #407: JUST ADD GLITTER


It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and this week our fabulous Karen has chosen the theme: Just Add Glitter!  



I decided to go for a Christmas card (you can't start too early on your Christmas cards!), and I decided to make a snow globe shaker card, filled with glitter.  

This week we are being sponsored by one of my FAVOURITE digi stamp shops: The Paper Shelter!


They are offering our lucky winner a $10 voucher to spend in their store, so you don't want to miss this one!


I chose Snow Maiden, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.  I used gel pens for the beads in her hair, Liquid Pearls for falling snowflakes, and Stickles on her dress.  The snow globe is a Precious Marieke cutting die, which I ran through twice - once for the backing and once for the glitter paper (DCVW Glitzy Glitter stack).  I then stuck my coloured image to the base and some Dovecraft Acetate to the glitter top.  I joined the 2 with puffy pads to create the cavity for my glitter.  The white background has been embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I then added a few Queen & Co petite posies, and one Prima glitter dot.


I can't wait to see what you create with glitter this week!  

Remember to mention in your description which Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) product you've used, and get that entry in, for an opportunity to win this week's fantastic prize from The Paper Shelter!

COLOURFUL BUSINESSMAN


FINALLY I am getting back to working on my 'male stash'!  I have made a few cards since I last posted, but they've had to be made in secret and kept hidden, because the recipients keep a close eye on my crafting creations, and I didn't want them to see them prematurely.  

This is the 2nd time I have made a card using this gorgeous Paper Shelter stamp, called Businessman.    He has been coloured with ProMarkers.  I decided to make this card bold and bright, but simple.  I had someone specific in mind - a family friend who is studying to be a Chartered Accountant (hence the 'accounting' type paper choice).  My papers are from the Bo Bunny Journal Collection Pack.  The laptop was cut on the Cameo.  The calculator, pen and pencil are Jolee's stickers, and the sentiment tag is an Atrwrap sticker, with a peel-off sticker message.


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