A Scenic Pond with Marianne goodies!



Hi - sorry, I've been out of action for the last week as life has been rather hectic but I just wanted to share this card I made a few weeks ago using Marianne products.  I particularly love the pond border using the Foxglove flower stamp- I saw someone demonstrating this on one of the craft channels here in the UK and it looked so effective.  My full list of Marianne goodies used are below the next picture

Lily Pads and Flowers Stamp - TC0851
Grasses edging pond using a stamp from Eline's Brushstroke set  - EC0162
Tree stamp - Actually a Foxglove stamp set! - TC0849
Lily Pad/Flowers die set - LR0459 - NEW! 
Bullrushes Die - LR0409
Goose Die - LR0410
Lacy Border Die - LR0457 - NEW!
Papers - Belle Fleur - PK9105

The Dragonfly die is from Paper Artsy and has been in my stash for years!  I have just now found the perfect use for it!!  Having said that I now have the Marianne dragonfly and frog die set which is smaller but even lovelier so I've detailed the code below in case you're interested.

Tiny's Frog and Dragonfly Die set - LR0461
That's all from me for now - have  a lovely Wednesday!

Going Dotty at Passion for Promarkers



Oops - a bit late in posting this but today's card is for our Going Dotty Challenge starting today at PFP as chosen by our lovely Lisa!  I've gone with some Dotty colouring with my promarkers and also the animal print dotty paper from DCWV.  My image is Three Little Kittens from Mo's Digital Pencil - what's not to love!!
The stitched border die is from Marianne Designs - deets below, and I just couldn't wait to use the sun and clouds that came in my DT pack from Marianne - they come as part of a bendy card set, but just used them here quickly as they fitted with my design and colour combo.

A 50th with Mo's Digital Pencil Merges and 15% off Mo Images!!

I made this  card for a friend who's cycling mad and visiting from down south at the minute.  Big Guy's Bike comes with several accessories including the basket filled with presents and the cycling helmet.   I did the merge in several layers using Photoshop, first with the helmet and basket of presents, and then merged in Sheep to create a typical Lakeland scene!!
The papers are My Mind's Eye and I did the sentiment in Publisher!  The little bike stamp/die combo is from Sizzix, Simon's cycling outfits are a little more fetching, streamlined but you get the idea! 
Mo has 15% off through til April 25th so don't forget to stock up on some of your favourites or some of  Mo's gorgeous new images!

Oh and Happy Easter everyone!

Marianne Layering Roses Stamp


I knew I was going to love these Roses Stamp set from Marianne w hen they came in my DT package- especially now that I have my Misti which makes it so easy to layer up the colours.

I need to find some time to play with more colour combos as they make super CAS cards with just the layering and a nice sentiment (free with magazine!!)  The set is new out and there is also a hydrangea, tulip and gerbera set (I have my eye on the hydrangea set!) The code for the roses set is TC0855 and currently in stock here in the UK at Crafts U Love- just sayin'!!

It's turned a bit colder here at the minute but no rain for a bit so can't complain!

G-Fa Giraffe (or Zebra, Charlotte Wilson!!)



A clean and simple card from me today, using the super lovely G-Fa Giraffe from Mo's Digital Pencil I just think he's so gorgeous he didn't need an awful lot else!   Coloured with my promarkers and then added a few acrylic candy from Marianne Design.

The sun is shining here so must get on!

A card for our new challenge at Digital Pencil Too - always Anything Goes - Father and Daughter




It's new challenge day over on the DP2 Challenge blog and as always the theme is Anything Goes.

I made this card for my daughter's partner, Harry, whose birthday is the day before Violet's - so thought this image - Father and Daughter -  would be perfect for him.  It gets a bit confusing that my son is also called Harry - so it's Harry Bro and Harry O (for the surname) in our family!  Harry O is also a massive Arsenal fan, so I used a Dienamics hexagon die set to make the football mat background.
I managed to sneak in a Marianne Die too- Passe Partouts Stitched Circles set  - CR1360.
The sentiments were from a free magazine set.
Now as always there's a $5 voucher for the winner to spend in Mo's Online store here.  So get out your Mo images and your colouring medium of  choice and come and join in the fun!

Hugs, Juliexx

I've used lots of metal charms and itemson my card, including the heart, the love button, the flower centre and on the Marianne Die Tassels for the bit at the top - -can't think of it's proper name!!
