Pretty in Pink

Hi crafters,

Well here we are in October already - whatever happened to September?  Oh well, at least there's some gorgeous autumnal colours to see this time of year!!
It's also time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and our lovely Nat has chosen 'Pretty in Pink' as the theme for this week - nice and easy!
We are kindly sponsored by Little Miss Muffet Stamps and they are offering the lucky winner a $6.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  There's a great choice of digis to choose from and we were lucky enough to be given an image to use on our cards this week.
                                                   
                                                            Little Miss Muffet Stamps
I've used the gorgeous image called 'Candy Floss Crew Ebony Winter' and I made a picture to hang instead of a card for a change!  We made one in our last card workshop so I decided the image was perfect to make another one!

I coloured the image with my promarkers and added some glossy accents to the glasses!  I added some WOC flowers and a lovely pink ribbon so that it could be hung on the wall.  Makes a change from a card I thought!


So why not join in with this week's challenge?  
Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  
I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.

The Great Outdoors

Hi crafters,
I managed to find some time to craft eventually this weekend although it's been quite a traumatic week!  My youngest has just left home to start University in Lincoln so I've not had much crafting time with getting everything ready for him!  Oh well, must think on the bright side - I'll soon have 2 craft rooms when my eldest goes back to Uni in a fortnight!  I'll need to craft permanently I think to keep my mind from worrying about them both!!

This week's fab challenge at Passion for Promarkers has been set by our lovely Lorraine C and she's chosen the nice, easy theme of The Great Outdoors',
We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are gorgeous and great to colour in!
Bugaboo
We were lucky to have an image to play with and this one is called 'kidz Daisy'

The image is coloured in using my promarkers and I added a touch of glitter here and there!  I wanted the image to be the main focus of the card so I just cut some coordinating paper with my cloud border die.  I used some black card to make the colours pop and I used a diecut sentiment as well - for a change!  I almost added my usual flowers and ribbon but managed to stop myself!!  Had to have something in the corner though didn't I so I allowed myself some matching buttons!  I then walked away hee hee!!
So why not join in with this week's nice and easy challenge .  Don't forget that to be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers etc) and of course, follow the theme.
I look forward to seeing your creations and look forward to visiting your blogs!

'All in a Day's work'

Hello again crafters,
There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and our lovely Linda has chosen the theme 'All in a day's work'.  She would love it if your creation could feature an occupation eg fireman, librarian, nurse etc.
We are kindly sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter this week and they are offering the lucky winner a digi image from their online store.  All their images are fab and you'll have lots to choose from.

Sasayaki Glitter

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with this week and I chose 'Lucy's flowers' - she could be either a florist or a gardener I thought!
This image was great to colour in using my pro/flex markers and I really enjoyed doing the flowers!  I matched her dress and ribbon to the polka dot paper and added some embossed card to the layers.  I used my MS punch to add a border across the top and added a thin ribbon to match the terracotta pots! I added a punched flower and some tags I made using some new stamps I got at the last craft fair in Port Sunlight. I actually forgot I had them and found them whilst I was looking for something else!!  I will definitely be using these again though!!
So why not join in with this week's fab challenge and remember to use your Winsor and Newton products in order to be eligible for the prize draw.
I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.!
Thanks for dropping by.

Monochrome Challenge

Hi crafters,
There's a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers starting today.  It's been chosen by our lovely Kitty and the theme for this week is 'Monochrome'.
We are kindly sponsored by Ppinkydolls and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digis from the online store.  All the images there are amazing and great fun to colour in.
Ppinkydolls

We were lucky enough to have an image to play with and I chose this gorgeous digi called 'Abi's Love'.  I chose to use cream as my monochrome colour which meant keeping the colouring as simple as possible.  I actually enjoyed keeping it as one main colour and will definitely use this theme again!
The papers are all from my stash and I punched some flowers out of these papers as well.  The sentiment stamp came from a magazine freebie and I used a brown ink pad to keep everything in the same tone.  I embossed the cream layer and all the edges have been inked with 'Antique Linen' Distress Ink.  Some cream organza ribbon and a couple of small wooden hearts were the finishing touches to the card as well as a few pearls here and there!!

So why not join in with this nice and easy challenge this week.  Remember, you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  To be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers etc) and of course, follow the theme.  Please also say which products you have used on your creation,
I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your lovely creations!

Hi crafters,
It's my turn to host this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and I've chosen a nice and easy theme - 'Just add glitter'.
We are kindly sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week and they are offering the lucky winner a $10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
The Paper Shelter
Their images are all gorgeous and we were lucky enough to have an image to use on our cards for this challenge,

The image I've used is called 'Playing under the Sea' and I really enjoyed colouring this one.  I've used my promarkers as always and just added some glitter - of course!!
I found some shells to add to my card which I collected many years ago on my honeymoon (knew they would come in handy one day!!!)   I don't know if you can see it but I've also added some cream spider's web (I think that's what it's called) just to give some texture to the card.  Some WOC flowers and a sentiment finished off the card.
Here's a side image of my card so that you can see the glitter!

Uniko Stamps

I've made a Graduation card for my friend's daughter and I've used this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary called 'Grad Girl'.  I decided on a simple gold and black colour scheme and added a lot of black glitter to the mortarboard hat (like you do!)!  

I embossed one of the background layers and added a scroll tied with black ribbon to match the image!  I also added a tassel which I attached with a brad to match the tassel on the mortarboard!!  I added a few pearls here and there (of course) and found some gold ribbon as the finishing touch.

So why not join in with this week's great challenge!  You can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton products to be eligible for the prize draw.

We are kindly sponsored by Bugaboo and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online shop.

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.

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!

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.

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!

My card has been made for a friend's Mum on her 70th Birthday.  She is a very keen sewer so I thought this image by Ella's Design was perfect for her.
I've coloured the sewing machine with my promarkers and added pearls and glitter to the design!  I even got MY sewing machine out and stitched a lot of the layers for the card! I added some diecut cotton reels and wrapped them with threads in matching colours.  Some buttons, pins and a tape measure added to the sewing theme and I even added a little wooden sewing machine as well!

Some lace (of course) and a few WOC flowers were also added and the sentiment is welsh for Happy Birthday!  I hope she likes all my sewing embellies anyway!

Challenge 384

Hi crafters,
There's a great new challenge at Passion for Promarkers today and our lovely Donna has chosen a fab theme  'In the pink',  We are very kindly sponsored by Bugaboo this week and they are offering the lucky winner 4 digi images from their online store.  It'll be hard to choose them though as all their images are gorgeous!

Bugaboo

I've used one of their lovely images on my card this week entitled 'Happy Birthday to Ewe'.


I decided to have a pink sheep, of course and added lots of glitter!!  I used my promarkers and added a little bit of chalk for the pink cheeks!  My fence die came out again as it seemed fitting to use with the sheep and I added some extra flowers here and there.  After my last 'Clean and simple' card I threw everything on this one - flowers, a banner, pearls and more glitter!!  I think this style is more me but I'm determined to try some more CAS cards - it's good to challenge yourself sometimes and come out of your comfort zone!

So why not join in with this nice and easy challenge.  You can enter any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card,  Just remember to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme,  Please also state which Letraset products you've used.

Challenge 382 - CAS Card

Hi crafters,
There's another challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and Andie has chosen the theme 'Clean and Simple'.
We are kindly sponsored by 'The Paper Shelter' who are offering the lucky winner a $10 gift certificate to spend in their online store.

The Paper Shelter

We were lucky enough to have an image to play with and this one is called 'Retro Chic'.
I coloured her in with my promarkers and did some piercing around the image.  I don't really do CAS cards and so I had to walk away from my card before I added anything else, which was really difficult!!  No ribbon. no flowers and not even a speck of glitter!!  I just had to have something in the corner though so I added a couple of banners and a button in matching colours!

Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  As always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers) and don't forget to follow the theme.
I hope you can join in with this challenge and I look forward to seeing your creations!

We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up this week and they are offering the lucky winner 2 digi images from their online store  - choosing will be tricky though as they are all gorgeous!
We were lucky enough to have one of their digis to play with for this challenge and I've chosen 'Baseball Bear' - isn't he cute?
I've coloured him up with my promarkers and added a bit of chalk for his rosy cheeks!  I've added my new fence die that I got for Christmas - always wanted this one and a couple of banners at the top!
Some ribbons and of course a button (can't seem to make a male card without adding a button or two!) were the finishing touches to my card.

Hi crafters,
Another week has flown by and there's a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  This week, Lorraine is the host and she has chosen 'Sports/hobbies' as the theme - a nice easy one!
We are kindly sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their lovely online store.
We were lucky enough to have a digi to play with and I chose DIY Alf.  He's a great image to colour in and such a handy image for those tricky male cards!

I coloured Alf with my promarkers and used some new colours I had as a Christmas present from my lovely hubby! I distressed all the edges of the papers and added a corner die to each corner - just can't do those CAS style cards can I!! I added some ribbon and buttons and a Welsh 'Happy Birthday' sentiment.  This is a birthday card for my Father-in-Law and I hope he likes it!!
Well thanks for dropping by and don't forget to have a go at this week's challenge - all you have to do is use your Letraset products and follow the theme!

Happy New Year crafters!!
Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and I hope Santa brought you all some new crafty goodies!!  It's been lovely having the family all together again with my eldest son being home from uni - although he goes back next Sunday and I'm dreading it!!  I've got used to having him around again!
Anyway, the decorations are down and it's time to get on with things again!
The first challenge of the year at Passion for Promarkers has been set by our lovely new Design Team member, Kitty and she has chosen 'Anything Goes',
We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs and they are offering the lucky winner 3 digis from their online store.  They have some fantastic images and you'll be spoilt for choice!
I've used the cute 'Bundle of Hearts' image on my card and it's been coloured in with my promarkers. I've used a great layout that we used at one of our workshops and I've decided I'm going to try a lot of different shaped cards this year!  I added some glitter to the hearts (of course) and some ribbon and flowers finished off the card!
             This is a different view of the card to try and show the style of card I've used!

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to have a go at this week's challenge,    Remember to use your promarkers or any Letraset product and don't forget to say which product you've used on your creation!
See you soon!  Hugs, Karen xx
