'Use 3 of something'

Hi crafters,
Well I'm throwing myself into some crafting again as both of my boys have left home for Uni!  You kinda get used to them being home over the summer and then they leave again - it doesn't seem to get any easier :(
Aw well - thank goodness there's a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers for me to focus on!  Our lovely Lorraine has given us the fab theme 'Use 3 of something', nice and easy this week!  Could be 3 papers, flowers, pearls - anything you like!

We are kindly sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering the lucky winner a $12 gift code to use in their online store.
Bugaboo
We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I've used this one called ''Flower ladybug love',


I've coloured the image with my promarkers and added lots of glitter on the flowers.  I coloured the punched leaves with the same green as the image and punched out some daisies to go either side!
Some enamel dots went in the centre of the flowers and I used my MS punch for the black border.  I added a little ladybird embellishment so then I had my 3 of something (ladybirds!)

So why not join in with this week's challenge and be in with a chance of winning some fab new digis from Bugaboo Stamps.
Remember to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.  I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.
Hugs, Karen xx

'Add Buttons'

Hi crafters

Sorry for the late post today - had to go back to work after 6 weeks off and it was such a shock to the system that I forgot to do my blog!!
Anyway, our lovely Linda has chosen the brilliant theme of  'Add Buttons' this week, for our brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  Nice and easy as I think I probably add buttons to most of my cards!!

We are kindly sponsored this week by Cowling & Wilcox and they are offering one lucky winner a 6 pack of promarkers (pastel tones).
  

I've made this Welsh Birthday card for my computer mad son and this image was perfect for him!
I've used some monotone papers from 'The Works' and coloured the image with my promarkers.  I added a diecut silver star, some enamel dots and of course, some buttons!!  Buttons are always handy for those tricky male cards!

So why not join in with this fab challenge and be in with a chance of winning a great prize,  Don't forget, you can enter using 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. 
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.
Hugs,

The layout is inspired by Lisa and I've coloured the image with my promarkers. I've added lots of glitter to the icing and my sentiment, which says 'Enjoy Your Day' is inside the little envelope!  I've added a heart charm and some pearls here and there to finish off the card.

Flower Power

Hi crafters,
I've chosen the theme for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and it's 'Flower Power'. A nice and easy theme so you can enter your creations with flowery papers, flowers on an image or punched/die cut flowers - the choice is endless!
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up  this week and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digi images from their online store.

I've used one of their images on my card this week and this one is called 'Fairy Swing'.
I've coloured the image with my Promarkers and added a touch of glitter here and there!  I've added a die cut trellis to each side of the card and added some white punched flowers. I coloured the flowers with some chalk and did the same with the leaves.  I wanted the image to be the main focus so I kept the embellishments to a minimum!
I hope you'll be able to enter this week's challenge and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations!
Hugs, Karen xx

'Food and Drink'


Hi crafters
Another week flies by and that means a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Jacky has chosen this week's theme which is 'Food and Drink'.
We are kindly sponsored by Leann's World who are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digi images from the online store.
Image may contain: text that says 'eAn's World 10 Fan, sweet and cheerful digis fror ny World to yours.'
We were lucky enough to have one of the gorgeous digi images from Leann's World to play with this week and I've used this one called 'Martini'.
I've coloured the image with my promarkers and used a layout from a recent workshop (thanks Lisa!),
I used bits of papers that I've kept (just incase!!) and used various die cuts here and there.
I've inked the edges and added some pearls and flowers to finish off the card,  I've personalised it with my niece's name with some stickers that I thought went well with the colour scheme! 
This card is on its way to America for Jess who's working at a summer camp, which is why I've had to keep it quite flat!  Hope it gets there in one piece anyway!!
Don't forget to join in with this week's challenge - you can enter any type of creation, just remember to use your Winsor & Newton products (formerly Letraset).
Good luck and I'll see you again soon!
Hugs, Karen xx

'Flowers'

Hi crafters
Hope you've had a great week and are ready for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Lorraine has given us the fab theme of 'Flowers; this week so nice and easy!
We are kindly sponsored by Uniko Stamps  and the prize is 1 stamp set (which must be in stock)

Uniko Stamps
I finally got to use a window die that I've had for ages but have never got round to using!  So I took it out of the packaging at long last and decided to use it on this week's card!

I printed my digi image by the The Paper Shelter called ' My Little Garden' and coloured it with my promarkers.  I stamped the sentiment after I'd colouerd the image - mad fool that I am - could have ruined the whole card if I'd made a mistake!!
I then added the die cut window and put some polka dot paper behind it for curtains! I also added the top border on foam pads just to give the card some dimension.
I then added some punched flowers to the window box and put some small pearls in their centres.
Some glitter here and there finished off the card!
Well I hope you find some time to enter this week's challenge and I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations,
Hugs, Karen xx

Four legged friends

Hi crafters,
These weeks are flying by aren't they?  That means it's time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Nat has chosen the theme 'Four legged friends'.  We are kindly sponsored by Cowling and Wilcox who are offering the lucky winner a 6 pack of Metallic Markers,
Cowling & Wilcox
My four legged friends are these cute little sheep which I coloured up with my promarkers.  The grass stamp and die came with the set so it would have been rude not to use them!!
I embossed the die cut background with a heart embossing folder and inked all the edges with distress inks.  The picket fence die came out again and they got inked as well!! Some buttons, heart pearls and string were the finishing touches as well as a bit of doodling, as I felt it just needed something else! The stamped sentiment is also part of the set and is rather cute I thought!
Why not join in with this nice and easy challenge and be in with a chance of winning this fab prize. 
Remember you can enter using any type of creation but 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).
Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.
Hugs,
Karen xx
