Passion for ProMarkers #4

This week over on the brilliant challenge blog Passion for ProMarkers, the challenge is to use the colours Berry Red and Royal Blue as your main colours. I didn't think I'd like the way this card turned out, as I'm more for softer colours, but I'm pleased with the end result. Would be good for an Independence Day birthday.

A couple of Fathers Day cards

For the first card I used my sketchie which is this weeks challenge on Craft Bubble. As a DT member we're supposed to use Willow Design images, but as this one wasn't my DT card I thought it'd be ok to use a different image.

A Couple of Mens Cards

I had 2 mens cards to make this week (don't we just love making them!) The backing papers for both cards are from Pink Petticoat. For the first card I stamped the lets onto co-ordinating plain coloured card (PP) cut them out and give them a coating of 3D gloss. I ran the white card through the Cuttlebug diamond embossing folder. The second card is from an idea I saw on Pink Petticoat gallery.

Just Magnolia

Theres a great sketch to follow this week for the challenge over on Just Magnolia. This is the first time I've used this image, (kindly sent to my by a blogging friend) I think it's just so cute. I coloured the image with PM's, the flowers were cut using a cuttlebug die, the greeting is a stamp from Stamps Away.

Sketch Saturday, Just Magnolia & Passion for Promarkers

This week I've done something I don't normally do, but I've been pushed for time, so I've combined three challenges with this card. For Just Magnolia you had to use animals or insects, Passion for Promarkers you had to use the colours Apple and Pastel Pink and I used the sketch on Sketch Saturday. I used silicone to sit the butterfly on to give it the 3D effect.
