'Add a Sentiment'

Hi crafters,

There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme is a nice easy one - 'Add a Sentiment'.
We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online shop.
                                                           Bugaboo

Their images are fab and we were lucky enough to choose an image to use on our cards this week. I've made a 50th Birthday card for my cousin and added a Welsh Happy Birthday wish! I've used Tulip Hedgie and I absolutely loved colouring this one in!  I've used my promarkers and added a little bit of white gel pen to add dots to the bow!
I then found some dotty ribbon to match and some WOC flowers in similar colours.  I hope she likes it anyway!
So why not join in with this week's challenge - we all add a sentiment to our cards and we'd love to see your creations.  Don't forget to use your Winsor & Newton products (formerly Letraset)  and follow this week's theme.
Thanks for dropping by,
hugs, Karen xx

Challenge 397

Hi crafters,
There's a great new challenge today over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Nat has chosen the theme 'Make a kinetic card'.
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up stamps and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digis from their online store.
                                                 All Dressed Up stamps
They have some gorgeous images available and I've used one of them on my card this week.
It's called 'Fairy Swing' and I really enjoyed colouring this one!
 I decided to make a 'Tent Fold' card to fit the theme of a kinetic card as I thought it would be perfect for the image.  I wanted to make it look as though she was swinging happily from the branch!! I coloured her with my promarkers and added a little glitter here and there.  I embossed the top layer and added some punched flowers to the little picket fence (still love this little die!).
Here a side view of the card so that you can see the tent fold style - it folds flat so that it will fit nicely in a box.
I even added a couple of clouds to add to the little scene (I blame Lisa for this hee hee!),
So why not join in with this week's challenge and make a card with a different fold or movement.
You can enter using any type of creation - it doesn't have to be a card,  As always, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your entries and good luck!
Hugs, Karen xx

Tag it

Hi crafters,
There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Lorraine has chosen 'Tag it'.  A nice easy one, just add a tag to your creation!
We are kindly sponsored by Cowling & Wilcox this week and they are offering the lucky winner a 12 pack of promarkers (steam punk).
                                                        Cowling & Wilcox
My card for this challenge is a Birthday card for my Dad and he's always enjoyed a bit of DIY so this image was perfect for him.  It's a digi from Ella's Design which is on the Boys 2 Men CD.
I coloured the image with my promarkers to match his Black and Decker tools (other brands are available!) and used some papers that I got on Saturday (thanks Clare!).  I cut out a tag shape and embossed the top to add some texture.  I inked the edges with a 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink.  I added some craft candy in matching colours as well as a saw charm that I've been saving for ages for one of Dad's cards.  (I wonder if he would mind me asking for it back sometime lol!!).
I also added some glossy accents to the image but my photography skills fail me I'm afraid!
So why not join in with this week's challenge.  Just make sure you use your Winsor and Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.  I look forward to seeing your creations as always.
Hugs, Karen xx

Add a Charm

Hi crafters,
Another week flies by and it's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  This week, Kitty is in the hot seat and she has chosen the lovely theme - 'Add a Charm'.
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up this week and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digis from their online store.
                                                No automatic alt text available.
Their images are absolutely gorgeous and I've used one of them on my card this week and it's called 'Fairy Magic'.  She was a dream to colour in and I used my trusted promarkers as always!


The papers are by Anna Marie designs called 'Blissful Cocoa' and they are my favourite papers at the moment!  I've used an MS border punch on one of the papers and the flowers are from WOC,
I added a banner and a punched butterfly and of course, some pearls here and there!  Oh and some glitter!  The sentiment is by LOTV and my little charm was attached with some string!

So, why not join in with this week's challenge - it's really easy.  You can enter using any type of creation and to be eligible for the prize draw, don't forget to use your Winsor & Newton products and of course, follow the theme!

Flower Power

Hi crafters,
It's my turn in the hot seat this week  at Passion for Promarkers and my challenge is called 'Flower Power' - a nice easy one! You can use an image with flowers or add flowers as your embellishments, it's entirely up to you!
We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps this week and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 4 digi images from their online store.

                                                       Bugaboo
We were lucky enough to have an image to play with and this one is called 'Flower Water Cans - Tulip Can'.
I've coloured the image with my promarkers and I really enjoyed colouring these flowers.  I was also lucky enough to have some papers that were a perfect match.   It was an anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law so I added some heart die cuts and my heart MS punch!  I raided my stash for some WOC flowers and added a row of pearls along the bottom of the card.

Please join in with my challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers.  As always, to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme,

Add a button or 2!

Hi crafters,
This week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers has been chosen by the lovely Jacky and the theme is 'Add a button or 2!'  A nice and easy challenge - I think I add a button onto most of my cards!!
We are very kindly sponsored by Digistamp Boutique this week and they are offering a £10.00 voucher for the lucky winner to spend in their online store!  All their digis are amazing. and you'll be spoilt for choice!
                                                   DSB
I've used one of their gorgeous images on my card this week from the 'Edwin and Hetty' set and it was a lovely one to colour in.  As my card was for a new baby boy I decided to colour my little elephant in blue!!
I used an MS punch on the card base - not done this for ages and I'd forgotten how effective it is!  I added the little boy's name to personalise the card and added some corner and heart dies as well!    A little bit of glitter, some pearls and a couple of buttons (of course) finished off the card.  I hope they liked it anyway,
Why not join in with this fab challenge - remember you can enter using any type of creation.  Just make sure you use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and follow the theme!
 I look forward to seeing your creations!
Thanks for dropping by and good luck!
