Time for a Cuppa….

I just got a this cute Tutti Cutti stamp and thought it would be perfect for this week’s challenges over at I Love Promarkers and Passion for ProMarkers.   I used kraft card and baby blue card as the basis for the design, then added…

There’s no Place Like Home

My favourite products of the moment are these gorgeous papers and stamps from Graphic 45. They are so beautiful and versatile. I used multiple layers to add dimension, and coloured the stamped images with my ProMarkers. As always, a bit of sparkle in the poppies…

Glitter and Glitz

Another blog post?…another challenge?….. well, who could resist a bit of glitter and glitz combined with Promarkers? I couldn’t, so I created this card for the I love Promarkers challenge  using one of my favourite stamps. It’s so hard to capture the glittery detail of…
