Just Add Glitter at Passion for Promarkers

We have a fab new challenge at Passion for Promarkers this fortnight - all we want you to do is to Add Glitter to your projects - easy peasy!

I decided to make a new baby card this time - pink and glitter, 2 of my favourite things!

I used a cute little giraffe stamp and added lots of glitter to my die cuts:

Christmas is coming!

Yes, I know, nobody wants to hear the 'C' word, but it's getting closer every day and like every other year I am determined to be organised and have all my cards done by November - I'm hoping that I might actually achieve that this year!
And so, I have made a Christmas card for this fortnight's challenge at Passion for Promarkers, the theme for which is 'Use 3 patterned papers' The DT were allowed to choose an image from our sponsor - Digistamp Boutique and I haven chosen a fabulous set called 'Christmas Tweets', it's so cute!
I got a bit carried away with the glitter and got it all over the birdy's face!

Papers - 'Frosty Christmas' and sentiment  - LOTV
Dies used: 'Frostyville Border' - Memory Box and a snowflakes die from Marianne Designs
Pearls & glitter to finish off

Challenges:
'Christmas  In July'- Whoopsi Daisy

'Anything Goes' - Creative Inspirations

'Anything Goes' - CHNC Extra

'Anything Christmas Goes' - Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

'Anything Goes' - Christmas Cards All Year Round

'Christmas In July' - A Gem of a Challenge

Add Pearls at Passion for Promarkers

I hate to complain about the weather, but I haven't done much crafting lately due to the heat - I seem to come away from my craft desk with half of it's contents stuck to me!
But I did manage to get my DT card done for this fortnight's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this time we would like you to 'Add  Pearls' to  your projects. 
I had another mini splurge at LOTV recently, I just can't help myself as it's so easy now they do digi images and one of my purchases is the image that I have used today - isn't it just the sweetest?!
Sorry about the awful glare, couldn't get rid of it.


Image - 'A Hand To Hold' and sentiment  - LOTV

Papers - 'Frosted Essentials 8x8 pad by Phill Martin
Pearls from stash
Dies used:'Swirling Frame Layering Die Set' by Tonic,
'Classic 3d Itty Bitty Bow' from Creative Expressions' Finishing Touches range and a scalloped circle die

Challenges:

Diamond Swing

We have a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this time we would  like to see something sporty on your project that fits our theme of 'Sporting Ocassions' There is some fab inspiration from the Team 2 girlies, so please pop in to PFP and check out the DT cards
I'm afraid my post is a bit photo heavy - I wanted to show off my 'diamond swing card' from the best angle!
The DT were allowed an image from our sponsor(Little Miss Muffett) for this challenge - and he's a real cutie, so here is  my card:

Charming!

It's Tuesday again and time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers. 
As you have probably guessed from my  post title, we would like you to 'Add A Charm' to your entries and that's it, easy!
I was the lucky winner at Creative Inspirations  a while ago and my fantastic prize was to choose 5 - yes, 5! LOTV images and I have used one of them on my DT card, so you may well be seeing more LOTV images on my blog in the next few weeks!

Image - 'Pushchair' - LOTV
Kraft and yellow card, ribbon and charm - from stash
Dies used: 'Ornate Pierced Squares' - Sue Wilson's Noble range and 'Stately Circles' - Spellbinders
The embossing folder is  'Love Hearts' from Creative Expressions 

I have also added 'Diamond Sparkles' glitter to all the yellow card, but it doesn't show up too well in the photo, which is a shame as in real life it's really blingy!
