SHABBY SUMMER ROSES


This card is for my daughter-in-law's birthday.  My papers come from the Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics pack, and I have distressed the edges.  I love the soft look of these papers!  I have used two strips of lace, a pearl twisted ribbon and assorted roses, with random pearls dotted around.  The little frame is resin, left plain.

LEMON 60s



This is the first time I have used a Lemon Shortbread image, and I absolutely love her!! She is called Sixties Rock 'n Roll Girl, and I coloured her with ProMarkers.  The original image comes with a few more flowers around her, but I wanted the background, so I cut them off.  For the right vibe, you just have to listen to this in the background!

I felt her soft, 60s vibe needed a flower background, so I used a Cricut flower, which I layered several times, and cropped the bottom off.  The paper directly behind her is actually blue and pink smudges, from the DCWV Peri & Peach stack, but looks lilac on first glance.  The rest are plain cardstock.  I inked all the edges and added Stickles to the back base card.  The flowers are an assortment of Dress It Up buttons and Jenny B stickers, as well as tiny nail art stickers.  I've taken a close-up shot so you can see them properly.  I also added a few spots of Liquid Pearls.

PHYSICAL & SPIRITUAL STRENGTH



Card 2 for my 'male stash':  I chose a Paper Shelter digi called Physical and Spiritual Strength, and coloured it with ProMarkers.  My papers are from the DCWV All About Boys stack.  The karate elements are all Jolee's.  I've added a few odd buttons.  The pup is a Dress It Up button.  Lastly, I've added a yellow ribbon and a black ribbon, and tied the black one to resemble a black belt.  


This was a super quick card to make: colouring a stamp, one sticker pack, one paper pack and a few odd buttons and ribbons.  I don't think I've ever made a card so fast!

OLD TIME BARTENDER


If you're anything like me, you have a boxful of female cards, but have to make male cards on demand.  This is my first card aimed at rectifying the problem!

I have chosen a KennyK digi called Old Time Bartender, and coloured it with ProMarkers.  My papers are from the Authentique Rugged collection.  I have used a Martha Stewart edge punch and two Tim Holtz background dies.  The bunting was cut on the Cameo.  The beer bottles and caps are Jolee's.




One down...hopefully several to go!

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #399: ADD A SENTIMENT


It's time for another challenge at Passion for ProMarkers, and this week your theme is: Add A Sentiment!  All you have to do is use your Winsor & Newton products (formerly Letraset), and make sure there's a sentiment somewhere on your creation.  It couldn't be easier!


I have used this adorable Bugaboo digi, called Hedgehog Flower, and coloured it with ProMarkers.  I have added Glossy Accents to the ladybirds and Stickles to the trail left by the flying ladybird.  I lightly sponged the background with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

My papers are from the Wild Rose Studio Dancing Daisies pack.  The sentiment is a Hot Off The Press stamp.  I added a tiny Eyelet Outlet ladybird brad to the sentiment, and one to the bottom left flower.  The flowers are 49 and Market and Prima.  The daisy (top left) is actually a soft rubber drawing pin - I just cut the pin off, and the other 2 little ones are Dress It Up buttons.  I also added a paper doily.






Well now it's over to you!  


Bugaboo are offering our lucky winner a $12 voucher to spend in their store, so don't delay!  Head on over there to see their other adorable stamps, then get your entry in!

Looking forward to seeing your take on this week's theme!

A SHABBY CHIC CHRISTMAS


Today's card was a fairly quick make for me, as there was no stamping or colouring involved.  My papers (including the image) are from the Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics pack.  I have distressed all the edges and curled the bottom left corner.  I have added a strip of lace, pearls, ribbon and flowers.  That's it!  I SO love Maja Design paper!!

MONOCHROME CHRISTMAS


For this card I have used a Magnolia Santa, coloured with ProMarkers.  My papers are all from the First Edition Christmas Promise pack.  Noel is Fab Scraps chipboard, and the sleigh is a KaiserCraft wooden embellishment.  I have painted both with Prima Metallique Wax (Old Silver).



I have used 2 Bo Bunny doily dies, and ScrapBerry pearl swirls, which I cut apart to spread them around, plus a few odd pearls here and there.  There is also a piece of cheesecloth and a strip of Simplicity bobble trim, both of which I sprayed with Bo Bunny Sugar Glimmer Spray, to give them a greyish look, instead of pure white.  

The silver leaves and most of the flowers are Prima.  I've also used Petaloo flowers, and Couture Creations 'bouquets'.  Looking at the photographs now, some of the flowers look a bit brown next to the darker little flowers, but they're actually all shades of grey.  In ProMarker terms, think Ice Greys compared to Warm Greys 😉
