First cards of 2013 – Chocolate Tones

I took a little crafting break over Christmas but I’m back in full swing now.

Three cards with brown tones.  The first is for my sister-in-law and her new fiancé.  The image is from Sassy Cheryl (Delivery with a Kiss) and it’s coloured with the following Promarkers: Tulip,  Buttercup, Mustard, Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Burnt Umber and Umber.  I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl – Anything Goes

Sketch Saturday – Week 239

I Love Promarkers – Monochrome

The next card has an image of Saturated Canary, again coloured with Promarkers.  It is inspired by the song ‘Breath of Life’ by Florence and the Machine, from the move ‘ Snow White and the Huntsman’.  You can see the video for the song here.  I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge, Song Inspiration!

The last card is very different, even though it has a similar colour scheme.  No digi stamp  in this one; I used some die-cut decopage that I’ve had in my stash for ages.  It’s ‘Wellington’ Bear by DoCrafts, and so are the papers.  The ’70’ is cut with my Cricut, using the ‘Quarter Note’ cartridge.  The ribbon is from a box of Butler’s chocolates.  My mother always keeps them for me from any boxes she gets.  🙂

Cricut cards

This card is for my Goddaughter who is turning 1 this week.  The inspiration came from this card by Jackie Mooney.  I cut the card base with my cricut; I had a bit of trouble with it and had to get the scissors out afterwards :-/  It turns out that the blade was totally blunt! :-O  Anyway, I used Craft Room Basics, Ashlyn’s Alphabet and Celebrations.  The image is from Mo Manning and she is coloured with Promarkers.  Some ribbon, butterflies and pearls to finish.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Mo’s Digital Challenge – Anything Goes

*****I am resurrecting this card for the end of year challenge from Mo’s Digital Pencil – Fave Mo card made by YOU!******

This next project isn’t a card, it’s a sort of framed scrapbook page (frame not shown in the photo below!).  It’s a birthday present for my friend Aisling, who is a fabulous singer / musician (and her favourite colour is turquoise :).  The cuts are from the Cricut Cartridge ‘ Quarter Note’, which I just love.  I added some ribbon, a bling charm and some gems and card candi.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge – On the Job.

Cut it Up Challenge – Anything Goes
