Red Wedding Cards

Two cards for a wedding we have this weekend.  The colour scheme is red so I incorporated that and put a bit of gold with it.

This first has an image from Mo Manning, which is coloured with Promarkers.  I am entering this in Mo’s ‘Bis for’ Challenge (Bride)and Sketch Saturday Week 228.

The second card is one that I have made a few times!  But this is the first time I have done it with red. The hearts are cut with my Cricut.


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

Bitten by the Bug 2 – Shaped Card

Fashionista Challenge – Card for a Child

*****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:

Back to School card

It’s that time of year again!  Back to school!

This card is for my friend’s daughter who is starting ‘big school’ on Monday.  The image is from Sassy Cheryl and is coloured with Promarkers.  I cut the scalloped oval and blackboard with with my Cricut (Craft Room Basics).  I attempted a bit of faux stitching with a needle and white gel pen.  I’m not sure if it was a success or not!

Heart-shaped Easel Card

There’s a love affair going on in my house; it’s between my Cricut and Craft Room. If you use Cricut Craft Room you get the free online-only cartridge ‘Craft Room Basics’. Aswell as a font, it has some plain and scalloped shapes that can be used for many, many projects.

It’s very easy to cut a shaped card using craft room. If anyone would like the CCR files, just drop me a line and I’ll email the ones I’ve made to you.

I used the plain and scalloped heart shape from Craft Room Basics, an image from Mami Doodles, which I coloured with promarkers, and some stickles and other finishing touches.

The promarker colours I used are: Lilac, Lavender, Cool Grey 1, Cool Grey 3 and the Blender pen.

I could spend an eternity holding your hand.

I am entering this card in the following two challenges:

Passion for Promarkers – Week 135 – Grey & Purple

Mami Doodles – Challenge #42 – For a Loved One
