Cute Caite

Hi there! I am here to tell you about our new challenge at Passion for Markers which starts today and the theme chosen by Kitty is 'Make It Feminine' 

Our sponsor is Leann's World 101

Probably, like most of us crafters, I find feminine cards easier to make and here is my DT card:

Dotty paper - Phill Martin 8x8 pad, daisy paper - LOTV 
Dies used - Sue Wilson's 'Delicate Daisies'  leaves from her 'Cosmos Flowers' and a banner die from The Works (cut twice to give a shadow effect)
Finished off with a bow and pearls

Party Time!

This week at Passion for Markers, we have a nice open theme of 'Let's Celebrate' so your project could be for any occasion that requires celebrating - how easy is that?

I have used an image from our sponsor - All Dressed Up Stamps 

I tried something I have never done before for this card  - I masked the image and used distress oxide inks over it for some background colour - it wasn't the easiest image to cut out (especially only using one hand, lol!)
and I was reasonably happy with the outcome:

Image - 'Season To Sparkle' - ADU
I used Crafter's Companion's 'Shooting Stars' decorative panel border die down the edge of a square card blank and backed it with turquoise glitter card, then printed the sentiment on my pc and added it to some die-cut glittery stars
Finished off with some tiny turquoise gems

In The Pink

 Morning, it's been wet and windy here recently - a perfect excuse to shut myself away in the craft room! and my latest creation is for the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers - Elaine would like to see projects in your 'Favourite Colour Combo'

My favourite colour is pink with any other colour, but this time I have combined it with white and kraft, using an image from our sponsor - 

Image - 'Octavia The Ostrich' - Dr Digi's HOS

Pink dotty paper - Sue Wilson's 8x8 'Dots N Stripes' paper pad

Die-cuts are from Sue Wilson's 'Looped Ovals' and I used a dotty embossing folder on the smaller one for some added texture

Finished off with a bow, gems and some ostrich feathers (not real of course!)
