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.  🙂

Christmas Cards for Boys

Here are some Christmas cards for boys I have made.  All images have been coloured with Promarkers and all shapes have been cut with nestabilities.  I took inspiration from Sketches for different challenges for each of the cards.

I am entering this card into Sketch Saturday Challenge #235.

Here’s a card I made for my friend who just bought her first house.  The image is a freebie from Doodle Pantry and it is coloured with promarkers.  I am entering in the Doodle Pantry September Challenge.




I made this card for my brother for his birthday.  The image is from Sassy Cheryl and it is coloured with Promarkers.  I find it hard to make cards for men but I was quite happy with this one!



I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Pretty Papers

I have two birthday cards here for a little girl called Emer.  This first one is an easel card and it has an image from Sassy Cheryl, coloured with Promarkers.  I had these papers in my stash for a few months and didn’t want to use them because they were too nice!  But Jackie set the challenge for Cheryl as ‘Pretty Papers’ so I had to use them up.  🙂  I’ve embellished the image with the usual glossy accents and stickles, and added some card candi (dots!) on the base of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Cheryl’s challenge – Pretty Papers
I Love Promarkers – Dots and Stripes


This next card has a freebie image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.  The backing paper is a digi I bought from Creative Qube on etsy.  I cut the letters with my Cricut but they didn’t come out properly and I didn’t have time to change them :-/  Again, I’ve added some glossy accents and stickles to the image, and a little butterfly and ladybird to add to the ‘outdoor’ theme.  I also punched a heart border using an X-cut punch.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Saturated Canary challenge 23 – Great Outdoors

Creative Inspirations – In the Garden

Dream Valley Challenges – Die Cuts & Punches
