3 or more layers @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning on this beautiful summer Wednesday.
I have a new card to show you,
and remind you that today we start a new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This weeks sponsor is
Prize is £15.00 Voucher to spend in the shop.

The theme for this weeks challenge is
3 or more layers

How you interpret this is entirely up to you, but please remember you MUST use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, TriaMarkers or AquaMarkers and of course follow the theme to be entered into the prize draw, if not your entry will be deleted.

We would prefer that you have Word Verification turned off on your blogs, this slows us down so much when we go to leave you lovely comments.  If you have it turned on, then we're very sorry but we won't be able to leave you any comments, but your entry WILL still be entered into the prize draw.

For this challenge I've made a christmas card.
Of course in several layers, apart from that I've used a minimum of decorations.
I really like the die saying "God jul" ("Merry Christmas"), notice that the letter style on the die cut is the same style as the letters on the text on one of the DPs - cool, or what!
Some days ago my daughter asked if I didn't use my Magnolia stamps any more.
Of course I do!
Well - I stamp and colour them, but I haven't used any of them on cards in quite a while, so I thought I'd use one at least for this one, and maybe some more...

I have used the image A Christmas Fish and made a christmas card - a little funny; to find the christmas spirit and make a christmas card in July...
This weeks card is in a Clean And Simple style, with all sides of the card decorated in a very similar way.
Over the image, on the glass bowl, I put on a layer of Glossy Accents, so it looks more like real glass.
DPs are from BoBunny, stamped texts from Papirdesign, and of course the image is coloured with ProMarkers.

So, here's my christmas card with a pet, from different angles, all sides shown.
I hope you'll like it:

It's time for a new challenge over at

Our sponsor this week is
Prize is $10 voucher to spend on Digi's of the winners choice. 

Now, for my Summer Project:
I have decorated a little paperbag, just big enough to hold a giftcard - a giftcard to spend during the summer, maybe...
Both papers, flowers and the buttons are things I've had for a really long time, but I think they together were perfect for a summer project. I used one of the buttons as a decorative part of the closing. It might make the closing a little fiddlier, but I think it's cute though...


The card inside have got a little tab with a hemp cord run through, the buttons in each end of the cord prevents it from loosen from the tab (and looks cute...)




The closing:


ProMarkers used to colour the image:
Skin: Ivory, Dusky Pink, Tan
Hair: Buttercup, Tan, Primrose
Clothes: Pale Blossom, Blossom, Pink Carnation
Sunglasses: Pink Carnation
Slippers: Satin, Putty, BlossomLips: Pink Carnation, Blossom

Sizzix Toppers, Borders and Corners by Brenda Walton



Good Morning
Today I have another dies-set I have got to play with from Sizzix to show you.
I have to warn you; this is a rather pictureheavy post, with measurings for the paperbag I made, and with lots of close up pictures, I hope you'll find it interesting enough to continue reading...

The dies set I got from Sizzix this time is called
This set contains 8 different dies, and was super fun to play with.
I made a paperbag that fitted the size of the dieses.

Here's my finished paperbag:
(You'll find measurements for the paperbag further down in the post)

Backside:

Opened up:


After a little try- and failing I came up with these measurements for the paperbag:
(I used 250g cardstock to make the paperbag)
Cardstock size: 8 1/4" x 10"
Score: 3 1/8", 4 5/8", 7 3/4" and 9 1/4" (it leaves a 3/4" strip to glue the paperbag together)
Score shortside on 1/2" for the bottom part of the bag
This leaves the paperbag 8 1/4" high, but of course it can be cut at the hight you want...

I used papers from G45 on the bag before I attached the top and bottom covers.

Then I covered the bottom part with one of the dies from the set, the scorelines on the die-cut matches the foldings on the bag just perfect:


I covered the top of the bag with anothe dies from the set. 
This one is only attached at the back of the bag, to be able to open the paperbag:

I decorated the part that is attached to the bag the same way as the frontside:

Inside the lid I put on a magnet to keep the bag closed (of course there's a magnet underneath the DP on the bag, as well...)

On the back of the paperbag I used an image from a G45 DP, lined for writing a little greeting or personal message

I think this little charms fitted just perfect for the paperbag

Materials used:
Dies: Sizzix Toppers, Borders and Corners by Brenda Walton (SIZ-660258)
DesignPapers: Authentique Anchored Paper Pad (AU-ANC500)
Charms: Storyteller (ST-008226)
DistressInk WalnutStain (RAN-TIM19534)
Stamp inside the lid on top: G45
Cheesecloth, Seambindingribbon, Twine, Button, Halfpearls
