Passion for Promarkers - WOW

Hi bloggers, this is a scheduled post as I am still in Florida, hopefully enjoying the sunshine and spending quality time with my family and friends, (hope I have found the craft shops by now :0)

I had to make this card well in advance..........I don't do advance......I am a last minute.com kind of gal, this is a first for me....LOL

Anyway, this week at Passion for Promarkers the challenge is WOW (White on white), hope i got it right as I have never made a WOW card before!!!

My big sis asked me to make a baby card for a friend who has just had a baby girl on her last IVF attempt, I turned to this adorable Penny black stamp, 'Baby Hammock' that I have to tell you is the second time I have used this stamp..........that is a record for me....LOL, it makes such cute baby cards, well worth having in your stamp collection!!

I coloured Baby Hammock in the following Promarkers:

Lemon, Sunflower, cerise, pale pink, dusky pink, pastel pink, china blue, cinnamon, tan, cool grey 1, warm grey 3 and pastel blue, leaf green, forest green and blender

The border around the card was created with my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for the embossed panel. The circle I stamped my image on and the frame around it are a Marianne design creatables set I got from Stampeezee, I love this set!!!

The ribbon is Seam Binding from Stampeezee, available here

I hope you like my card and would love you to leave a comment, I will visit you back when I return from my hols, no internet for me in Florida, hubby has banned it....LOL

Passion for Promarkers, Embellishments

Hi bloggers, Hope this finds you all well, by now I will be into my first week in Florida in theme park heaven with my lovely family so forgive me if I don't visit you this week, I am scheduling my next few posts - fingers crossed they work!!

Anyway, this week at Passion for Promarkers the challenge is 'make your own Embellishments' I chose to use an a la mode stamp from My Favourite Things, don't cha think that lil lady and that teddy are cute?? I love these a la modes, see them all here, the one I have used is 'Oh Baby' and it comes with 4 sentiments that stamp beautifully!!I had to paper piece that teddy and pop his head up on dimensionals, soooooooo adorable!!!

I coloured the rest of the image in the following Promarkers, all of which are available here: Blush, Dusky Pink, Rose pink, meadow green, apple, cocoa and caramel

The Rosette was made from this die here and the paper button using this die here.

My Favourite things are bringing out some fab lines at the moment, I think I have a slight obsession with this manufacturer at the moment...LOL

The sketch is an old Mojo Monday, fab layout.

Oh before I forget the DP is Imaginisce Baby Powder Baby's breath, so sweet!!

Hope you like my card, have a great week and thanks for looking.x
