Birthday girl over at TPS

Morning and hello!
I am back with a second post for the week and this time I am showing off a card made for the Paper Shelter Challenges. This weeks theme is set to " Birthday Girl" and should be a really easy one. So come on and join us. You can enter up to three times and one of your creations needs to showcase some TPS products.

For my card have I used the new fabby image called Groovy Girl. She totally rocks! A stunning image with lots of happiness to it. Just love it. I have used the pre coloured version for my card and one day soon will I colour it up on my own as well. It's so charming. I wish I had the currage to walk around dressed like that. And had that much red hair! :)


I have used an old paper pad from Echo Park once again. Yes, I have plenty of them laying around and they are still a favourite to use for card making. They make me smile. I have made a few retro flowers with a Joy die in three sizes and used an old paper punch from Martha Stewart to add some details to my card. I went from white card stock to black this week love how it brings out different details. I also managed to use up some old brads for the flower centers and some black and white ribbon for a little more details. The sentiment is made with a old writer that I had for quite some time now. 


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

Take good care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Anything goes over at PFP

Morning and hello! 
It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this time are we celebrating our anniversery. Time do really pass by quickly doesn't it? We have gone for the theme of Anything goes so that means that all creations that has some promarkers on them are able to play along and maybe even win a prize. So come on and play along with us for this fun challenge!

I have used an old image I found in my stash and coloured it up. I thought it is fitting with a celebration image for this weeks card. It's I am not really sure who has made but it is cute. LoL


I have used a paper pad that only has tons of celebration papers on it and the ice cream and cookies on the side is fussy cut from one of the papers and added with some pop dots on the top of each ice cream and cookie to add some dimension. A few lovely sequines are also added to the mix to give some more popping colours. Hope you like the happy card!

A card just for the fun of it

Morning and hello!
I decided to pop back again and show off a card of mine. I make so many more cards than show up here, just because I am too lazy to blog them. At least I have taken some photographs of some of them to be able to share when I don't have so much going on here. 

This is an image from Lili of the Valley that I have had for a very long time and from time to time I dig it out and colour it up again. It's a good image for everyone to make a happy birthday or celebration card with. 


I have actually managed to use the same paper pad for this card as I did for the card I posted earlier this week. From Echo Park and the Spring time pad. I have coloured the image with distress inks and made a few pin wheels for decorations. In the middle have I used the same type of enamel dots as the last card but from another pack. This one has some glitter on the dots and stars. 

Anyway, thanks for dropping by. It was good to see you around and pay me a visit. Do leave a little foot print and I be sure to pop by to visit you as well. 

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Summer is on it's way over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello!
Yay! I am back again with pain in a shoulder but feeling really happy today for some reason. And I am tired but my head is spinning of energy. Weard feeling but for most the week is good, at least for a day or two. 

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this weeks theme is set to Summer is on it's way! That means we want to see summer inspired creations for this challenge. Hope that will be nice and easy for everyone. The only thing you have to remember is to use your promarkers and to follow our theme. That's the way to go to have a chance for our prize of this week.

Our sponsor is 
A day for daisies which is offering one lucky winner a gift code worth $8.- Such great prize for a lucky crafter!

And now to my card. I have used the fabby image called Favorite Flower Pots as I love to find fun and charming flower pots for my plants outdoor. With that said that I have not planted one single plant yet this season. LoL It was great fun to colour this image and I am really pleased with the colours I picked out for this one. Actually the card makes me smile. I love really love how it all came together this time. 


The designer papers are from Echo Park and is called spring time I think but works perfect for summer too with all the fun images on the papers. You find wellies, flowers, kites etc all in the happy colours that Echo park uses for their products. Happy paper pad! ;)

I have used lots and lots of layers of paper and just a few enamel dots as decoration. I think they are from Marianne Design or something like that. I bought a ton of them when I found them really cheep. Wonder how something as small as these little dots can cost so much money? đŸ€”

So with this I hope that you come and play with us and join in our fun challenges that starts one new each week. Always a prize to be won for one lucky winner who plays along and uses promarkers.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Colour it! over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello!
I am here with my new Paper Shelter creation and this week are we going to follow the theme of COLOUR IT! That means you have to have done the colouring yourself. No pre made toppers or only sentiments this time around. You have to use your colouring medium this time around.

I have used an old image called Mad about comics! I have had it coloured for years and never found a perfect time to use it, but now it was time for it. I have used very bright, basic colours when I coloured the image. So I dug out my big collection of Echo park pads with dots, spots, lines and whatever they are called. 


I have also used a punch that looks like the edge of the paper has been torned from a note pad. A few die cut stars, a premade from Simple Stories and a black and white ribbon is also used. As a final touch have I used a few of my card candy in mini format. They are perfect for adding a little details to any creations.

 

As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

Well, I hope to see you over at our challenge this week and be sure to make something fun during the week to keep YOU happy!

Love n hugs
Marie
