Lace and/ or Ribbon @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all
I'm early up, trying my new washing machine, and it seems to work just perfect! Just using the spare machine the last couple of weeks has left a lot of clothes unwashed, and the laundry room in a terrible state. Whatever - being unable to do the laundry has just given me more time to make cards :)

Today we start a new challenge over at

I ❤️ ProMarkers

This week’s theme is 
Lace and/ or Ribbon  
Our sponsor is 
The Paper Shelter


Prize is a  $15voucher

I got the beautiful image Charming Spring Girl, and chose to use it on a confirmation card for a cute girl.
I used DPs from Papirdesign, lots of laces and ribbons. The image is colored with ProMarkers, and around it I sprinkled on a little Frantage (Shabby Green).
I used several dies and punches. Inside it has a stamped on little poem.
Here's pictures from all sides of the card:

Two Colours Only @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning Friends and Followers
It's a beautiful Wednesday morning
A Wednesday with a new challenge at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This week’s theme is  Two Colours Only
Our sponsor is  Dr Digi's House Of Stamps

Prize is 2 digi image of winner’s choice.

How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you MUST use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted.

Two Colours Only - A rather hard one, I thought.
But as I sat down with the image Tin Man, I found the colors almost gave themselves. 
It had to be grey and brown - what else could it be for a proper tin man!
So, I used all Warm Grey colours and a few brown shades, -oh, and of course the Blender.
After posting the pictures to the blog I realized that the flocked border on the grey DP looks a bit greenish, but checking on the card again it was grey. So what happened from the camera via the computer to the blog is kind of a mystery...

Well, here is my Two-Colored card:
Inside the card (don't you think the grey Bazzill has got a little greenish hue here also?!?)
I'll wait to attach the greeting panel on the left inside 'till I've found the greeting I like to stamp on:

Sizzix Graceful Flourish Tag


Hi again.
I know I have showed you this die from Sizzix earlier, but I have to say it has become one of my favourite dies. I think it works so well with my shabby chic, vintage projects

Sizzix Thinlits Die Graceful Flourish by Pete Hughes

Here I have used it on a shabby chic tag.
The tag has an old christmas light holder glued on.
The light holder attaches the tag to the belt wrapped around the magazines.
This way the magazines don't make just a pile of clutter, but become a little decoration.
I hope you'll like it:

Pearls and Swirls @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all
It's time for a new challenge over at I ❤️ ProMarkers.
It's also easter time, and for my DT-project for this challenge I've made two little easter decorations


This week’s theme is Swirls and Pearls
Our sponsor s are
And second sponsor is  Digital Delights


How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you must use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted.


And here's my easter decorations. A cup and a basket to put some easter candies in.
I used the image Belinda Bunny from Digital Delights on both projects. Both images are coloured with ProMarkers. I even started out with the same colours, but the one on the cup is just coloured the "old-fashion childhood way", with no shadowing or blending (just stay inside the lines-colouring). On the basket the colours on Belinda Bunny is blended and I tried to give her more life with some shadowing.
And, of course, as the theme is Pearls and Swirls I used lots of pearls, swirls, flowers and such to decorate my projects.

The basket filled with candy:

Men At Work @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all this beautiful Wednesday morning.
I'm sorry for the long break (almost a month!), but finally I'm back with a new card for the new challenge over at

The theme for this Challenge is 
Men At Work


Our sponsor is Kenny K

Prize choice of 3 images

How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you MUST use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted.
Here's my Card, showing a "working man", a real handyman. I've used the digistamp called Handyman Dad from Kenny K.
Of course the image is coloured with ProMarkers. Around it I put on some Frantage.
The card is built up in layers, both paper- and cardstock edges are inked with DistressInk HickorySmoke. I couldn't put on too much embellishments on a masculine card, but I found a few toolcharms, a couple of "screw"brads and a few "rustic" looking eyelets.
Inside the card has a pocket with a tag, and a stamped sentiment.




I hope you like my Masculine card
