Spring Cards

Two cards today.  The first has the image ‘Lonely Hearts’ from Sassy Cheryl, coloured with promarkers.  I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday: Week 245

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!

I am entering this card into Mo’s Digital Challenge – Anything Goes.

50 Shades of Grey card

For all the Fifty fans. 😉

When I first saw this image by Saturated Canary I had to have it, even though I didn’t know what I would use it for!  Well it turns out, Valentine’s Day is perfect for it.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and embellished the card with grey ribbon and black pearls.  I am entering this card into the I Love Promarkers Challenge – Love is All Around.

Sweet Valentine Cupcake Box

My friend Sinead (my cupcakes biggest fan) asked me for a twin box of cupcakes for her and her daughter for Valentine’s Day. Here’s what I came up with for her!

I made the box from the Cricut Cartridge ‘Sweet Tooth Boxes’. I used an image from Mami Doodles and embellished the box with embossed die-cut hearts, pink gems and polka dot ribbon. The cupcakes are vanilla, with a banana and strawberry buttercream and lovehearts.

I’m entering this project into the following challenges:

Mami Doodles – Red/Pink/White

Shelly’s Images – Love in Colour

Whimsical Designs – Colours of Love

Cutie Pie Challenge – Anything but a card

I love Promarkers – Love is in the Air

PSHappy Valentine’s Day to those of you who are entering into the spirit of things, and STAMP OUT VALENTINE’S DAY to those who aren’t. 😀

Valentine Cupcakes

I’m about 2 weeks too early making these, but the great thing about cupcakes is that they freeze really well!  I made the wrappers using my new Cricut Expression die-cutting machine.  Cupcake wrappers can be very expensive and there’s very little choice of style.  With my Cricut and some compatible software I can use any paper and do pretty much any design I like.
