FIRST BIRTHDAY


I needed to make a card for a first birthday, and since most things handed to a one-year-old end up in their mouths, I thought it best to keep the card as clean and simple as possible.  The image is from Lili of the Valley, and I have coloured it with markers.  The dotty paper is from the Sugar & Spice Studio Baby Girl pack.  The Nephew stamp is Papermania.

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #428: LOTS OF LAYERS


Hi everybody!

There's a new challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers today, with a fantastic prize up for grabs!

The theme for the week is:
LOTS OF LAYERS

are generously offering our random winner a  £10 voucher for their store!  


I got to use the Summer Louie set on my card, and coloured it all in with ProMarkers.  In this set you get Louie with a beer, Louie with a cocktail, and several sentiments, including the one I used.   I used both Louies on my card, but turned one into a Louise, by giving her a pink chair and colouring her a little lighter than the other Louie - just to make her look a little softer.


My papers are from the DCWV Peri & Peach stack.  I have used LOTS of dies on this card:
 Xcut - the filigree heart behind the flowers on the left
Poppy Crafts - the 3 tags on the right; the heart balloons on the left
Spellbinders - the 2nd heart on the left
Creative Dies - stitched border edges
Sizzix - doily
Joy Crafts - the heart banner & the little clouds
Ultimate Crafts - popping champagne

My flowers are 49 and Market.

I also added a strip of lace and some cheesecloth.




I hope you won't feel too intimidated by the theme.  Feel free to interpret it any way you like.

As usual, to be in line to win our fantastic prize this week, all you have to do it use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products, and follow the theme.  Please mention in your post, which of the Winsor & Newton products you have used.

You can make you way back to the challenge here:


Good luck!

SWEET ESCAPE


This beautiful image was given away by Sweet Escape Digis last year as a freebie via Kit & Clowder.  It has taken me this long to colour her up.  She is so striking that I decided to keep the card as simple as possible, to show her off.  The light grey/silver striped paper is from the DCWV The Formal Affair stack.  I have double layered the frame around her, with puffy pads.  The frame was cut on my Cameo.  All I've added to that is pearls on the inner edge of the frame, and one in the bottom corner of the card.
