Male cards

Here’s two cards I made for my brother’s birthday (one from me, one from my Mam!).
The first one has an image from Mo Manning, coloured with Promarkers. I used some lovely grosgrain ribbon I got from The Ribbon Shack.

The next card has a cute image from Mo Manning, also coloured with promarkers.  I had another go at the distress inks here, leaving the circle nestie in place for a white border.  I’m not too sure about the results!

First attempt at Distress Inks

SO my crafty new year’s resolution was to try out Distress Inks.  I was advised to start with light colours to start with, so I bought ‘Old Paper’ and ‘Spun Sugar’ by Tim Holtz, and a blending tool.

 

The first card uses ‘Old Paper’ and an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.

I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge – Song Inspiration.  This engagement card is inspired by the song ‘Make You Feel my Love’ by Bob Dylan, more recently covered by Adele.

This next card also has an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.  This time, I used ‘Spun Sugar’ Distress Ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

In the Pink – Pink and Pearlie

Sketch Saturday – Week 240

The last card has some distressing aswell, but not with inks!  I used some Core’dinations black card, and distressed the edges with a scissors to show the white core.  The image is from Mo Manning (I use this one a lot!), coloured with Promarkers (Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5).

I Love Promarkers – Monochrome

I attended the above wedding over a week ago, the day after Christmas, but with it being a busy time, I only got around to making the card yesterday!  My gift for the couple was 120 cakepops for the wedding!  The colour scheme was purple, so I got some purple lollipop sticks and purple gel food colouring from Cake Couture so that they would match.  You can see my tutorial for cakepops here.

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:

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge – On the Job.

Cut it Up Challenge – Anything Goes
