It is my daughter's 18th tomorrow and as usual I have left it until the last minute to make some cards. I have had the ideas in my head but had not actually started it until today, so this is why I am on here so late as my head is now buzzing with ideas. Hope you like them.
The papers are free from Making Cards Magazine. Swirl leaf flourish is Marianne creatables die. I used a fiskars paper lace border punch and best of all I used the Spellbinders Rose Creations die which I just had to get when I saw this lovely rose on Julie's inkspot blog. Made on an 11 x 6 card.
Spellbinders Rose Creations
This one was made using my old favourite mcs cd using papers and designing topper and then adding a lace ribbon with a brad into a star spacer. This was made on an 8 x 8 card. Thanks for looking and your comments are very much appreciated. Karen xx
Hi again. I can't believe I have another card for you to see. This is my masterpiece thanks to Ooops Cluttered Corner blog I followed her tutorial on how to colour in using promarkers. Her blog has inspired me as she is such a brilliant designer. A big thanks Nic. I also looked on The Crafty Cuttings of Wiccababe blog for different hair colours. I just love these sassy stamps from Funky Kits website
Papers from cd cut into borders
sassy stamp - hippie chick
promarkers used - coral, sunkissed pink, blush
walnut, cocoa, cinnamon, tan
tulip yellow, buttercup, pear green
pastel blue for her eyes and pastel pink for her rosy cheeks.
Last but not least, flower spacers and gems
By the way the image took me 2 hours to actually colour in, so I am not going to be in a hurry to give this card away. Hopefully I will get better with my blending. Thanks for looking. xx
I am entering this card as my first ever challenge to: I love promarkers - Challenge #71 Anything Goes
Couldn't wait to show you this one. I have been meaning to get this butterfly die for ages and I've finally got it. It is the Marianne butterfly die #2. I also bought the spellbinders rose creation die, but I haven't used it yet, but watch this space.
Using Marianne creatable butterfly die and glittering it using a spray adhesive, what a mess I got myself into using this spray. Also I used sizzix texture plates on my Big Shot machine and then added a few gems to finish off. I have seen so many beautiful cards made using white on white I thought I would give it a go, but just had to add a touch of glitter and gems. Thanks for looking. xx
Hi everyone. My name is Karen and I live in Poole Dorset. I have been making cards for about 7 years now. I am absolutely addicted. I just love buying bits and pieces especially beautiful papers. I find it hard to actually use them. I have 5 children age 25 down to 14 and 4 lovely grandchildren, so I am always making cards either for birthdays or their friends birthdays.
Take care Karen x
