Bildmalarna cutie

Heres's another cutie I coloured up & have actually put the card together instead of putting away in a box for another day !!

The stamp is a Bildmalarna one but unsure of the name, coloured using my promarkers, Tonic scalloped oval & a bit of glitter on the flowers
The papers were the left overs of a digikit from Ellas designs 'flower vase' although my photography skills are a bit lacking as the card looks washed out on the right hand side

Thanks for looking today

Having a play with new mini kits

The past 2 days I have been having fun playing with some new mini digi kits from Ellas design

Look at these beauties

These are so scrummy & had to have a play as soon as I downloaded them as the colours & designs are so stunning
In the kit you get a completed card panel which I use to put the included decoupage directly on as I am a bit stingy (waste nothing), I can then keep the extra layers included on the 2nd sheet to make up another card to put my own topper on
You get assorted sentiments on the sheets & there is also 1 or 2 inserts included with the kit to finish your card off
Add pearls & glitter for a stunning sparkle

I have been using Lisa from Ella's Design's Cd's for a few years as they have loads on them & are so versatile.  Now she has brought out digi downloads I am in heaven as she is also doing paper bundles to download which I absolutely love using

To have a look at the kits & paper bundles just type Ellas design into the search box on both Etsy & craftsuprint, they are such a great price too especially as you can print to your hearts content - I have made the flower vase design up 5 times already & had lovely comments from the recipients

I only need to buy a few more kits & I will be a happy bunny til Lisa brings out more for me to play with

Happy crafting, off to cut a few more kits out

Challenge card for I Love Promarkers DT

I was so excited to be asked to join the lovely DT ladies over at I Love promarkers I posted this on my blog 2 weeks early & had to delete it - Doh ....

The challenge this fortnight is spots &/or stripes which you can find here sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy with the winner receiving 3 digis of their choice

Here is my card although my photography skills could be better as the colours are not as vibrant as they are in Real life

I chose the image Halloween cat & used my favourite promarker colours of greens & purples, the papers are from a cd by Ellas Design "A year in cards"

I struggled to colour this as I had been away on my holibobs for a few weeks & had not looked at a pen while I had been away so had total brain fog

Come & play along with us & I can't wait to see your cards on I Love Promarkers blog

Big hugs
