No, not me (although I did have pink hair once upon a time), but Saturated Canary’s Jules. She is coloured with Promarkers, mostly pinks and blues. I added some lace, card candi, and some handmade paper roses.

This is a card I made for my friend who’s birthday was at the beginning of July! The image is by Mo Manning and it’s coloured with Promarkers. The challenge this week over at Mo’s is ‘distressing’. I’m not good with inks, so I used a pumice stone to distress some embossed core’dinations cardstock.
Apologies for the bad phone photography!
Nappy cakes are a great gift for a baby shower or new baby. They’re both novelty and useful. Inexpensive to make aswell; they just take a little time.
- Approximately 48 nappies
- 2.5 metres of wide ribbon (5cm) in blue, pink or yellow.
- 2.5 metres of wool or string
- Card toppers or embellishments (I used a decoupage kit from Cardznscrapz)
- Double sided tape and Sticky foam pads (you can get them from cardznscrapz aswell)
- Bamboo kebab sticks or knitting needles.
- Cake board or thick card and pretty paper to cover it.
Start with the bottom tier. For the bottom tier I used 22 size 2 nappies for the middle tier I used 16 size 1 nappies, and for the top tier I used 8 size nappies.
It’s hard to explain how to ‘mould’ them into the cake shape but I took some photos at different stages to show how I did it.
Imagine a clock face and put a quarter of your nappies (for that tier) pointing at 12, 3, 6 and 9. The open part of the nappy should be at the centre, and the folded part on the outside.
Carefully move the nappies into a fuller circle, keeping it as tight as you can.
Wrap some string or wool around the nappies, pull it tight and tie a knot. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect you can adjust the nappies afterwards.
Wrap some ribbon around the nappies, making sure to cover the string. Secure with a piece of double-sided tape. Fold over the end to give a neat edge.
Repeat for the other two tiers. Stack the tiers on top of each other and use some knitting needles or bamboo kebab sticks to secure them.
I used a piece from a cardboard cupcake stand to put the nappy cake on. You could use a cake board or cover a piece of cardboard with some wrapping paper either.
Cut out your embellishments and attach them using sticky foam pads. Et voila! A great gift at a great price!
This nappy cake has some ‘Boofle’ embellishments from Do Crafts.

I took inspiration from two challenges for this card. The image is from Sassy Cheryl and he is coloured in sepia tones with Promarkers. (I originally got the sepia idea from Jackie Mooney’s Promarker Workshop.)
The colours I used are:
- Burnt Umber
I don’t do inks! so I distressed the edges of the image using a scissors. The papers are both from the Wellington bear pack by Papermania. Finally, I used a pice of corrugated card from a disposable coffee cup sleeve, topped with a little bit of lace.

Here’s a card I made for a christening, using one of Mo Manning’s Images, coloured with Promarkers. I think it’s one of the nicer Christening cards I’ve made.
