One For The Boys

Hi Crafters,

It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine B and it's 'One for the boys'.
We are kindly sponsored this week by Digi Stamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to use in their online store.

DSB

I've used a fab image from DSB called 'Golf Alf' and it's a great image to colour!  It was also ideal for my golfing mad brother so it was the perfect image for his birthday card!
I coloured Alf with my promarkers to match the backing paper and added a teeny bit of glitter to the grass!!  I embossed the white card with a circle pattern and added some white card candy which looked a bit like golf balls?!!  I distressed the edges slightly with Antique Linen and added some buttons in matching colours to finish off the card.  I usually struggle with the male cards but enjoyed making this one!


So why not join in with this week's challenge and don't forget to say which Letraset products you've used on your creation!
Thanks for dropping by and good luck!
Hugs,
Karen xx

My Favourite Things

Hi crafters,
It's my turn to host the Passion for Promarkers challenge this week - my first one and I'm really excited!!
I've chosen 'My Favourite Things' as the theme.  It can be your favourite image, papers, style of card, flowers etc and don't forget to use your Letraset products on your creation!
We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up and they are offering the lucky winner 2 digis from their online store,  There are some really great images to choose from - you'll be spoilt for choice!
                                                         All Dressed Up stamps
I've used the gorgeous All Dressed Up image 'For Your Wedding Day' for my card.  I needed it for a friend's Birthday so I decided to use this image without the text as she loves shoes!!  I went for a dramatic colour scheme for a change as I love grey and pink together - my favourite colour scheme!!  I also used my favouire WOC flowers, ribbon and pearls and added some gorgeous pink glitter to the heels!!  Wouldn't mind a pair of shoes like these myself!!


So why not join in with this week's challenge - just choose your favourite things and remember to tell us what Letraset products you've used.
I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations, good luck and thanks for dropping by!
Hugs, Karen xx

Letraset         Michele R Designs

I've used a Tatty Twinkles image for this week's card and the gorgeous backing paper is from Michele R Designs from a collection called 'Shabby Pink Charms'.  This paper was so gorgeous I didn't want to cover it!!

I used my MS Punch to create the base card and I coloured the image with my promarkers.  I added some glossy accent to the sunglasses which you might just be able to see!  I added some co-ordinating flowers, ribbon and buttons and a few pearls to finish off!!
Here's another picture to try and show the shiny sunglasses!!
I hope you can join in with this week's challenge.  All you have to do is follow the theme and don't forget to say what Letraset product you've used.

'Yellow and Blue'


Hi crafters.
I'm back with a card for this week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and the theme this week is 'Yellow and Blue',  Our generous sponsor this week is Uniko Stamps and they are offering 1 (in stock) stamp set of winner's choice.
I've made a Welsh Birthday card for my cousin using an All Dressed Up digi image from the set 'Love To Shop' and it's been coloured in with my promarkers.  I added a few layers with patterned papers following the theme and made a flower to match!

I inked all the edges with Antique Linen and added some glitter and blue ribbon.  I even found some yellow pearls which were perfect as the finishing touch!  I tried all sort of different embellishments for the banner - yellow buttons, blue buttons, flowers etc but eventually found a pearl button which I was really happy with!!
Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to join in with this great challenge.  Remember to say what Letraset product you've used on your creation and good luck!
I'm also entering this card in the All Dressed Up challenge which is 'Anything Goes'.
Bye for now,
hugs, Karen xx

Challenge 351

Hi crafters,

It's another Tuesday which means a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  This week's theme has been set by our lovely Andie and it's 'Inspired by a song title (not happy birthday).
We are being sponsored this week by Letraset, who are offering the lucky winner a Windsor & Newton Brushmarkers set of 6 (Rich Tones) and also by Bugaboo who are offering a $21.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Wow, definitely worth having a go at this challenge!

Letraset
     Bugaboo
This is a card I made for Father's Day and when I went to see my Dad on Sunday, he was sitting in the exact same position as the image on the card - so funny!
My card is inspired by the song 'Relax' by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
I've used an image from Digistamp Boutique called 'Alf relaxing - dog' and it's ideal for those tricky male cards!  I've coloured it with my promarkers and added a teeny bit of glitter - can't stop myself can I!!  I just added a little bit of shadow on the dog as 'Poppy', their little pooch is white.
I added a couple of die cut corners and some buttons finished it off.  The text comes with the image which is brilliant and will come in very handy I'm sure!  

It's a great challenge to play along with and don't forget to check the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what the Design Team have been up to!
All you have to do is use your Letraset products and follow the theme.  Don't forget to say which Letraset products you've used on your creation!

Thanks for dropping by and good luck with the challenge!

Passion for Promarkers - Anything but square


Hi crafters,

It's time for another Challenge at Passion for Promarkers!. This week's theme has been set by the lovely Sue and it's 'Anything but square'.
Our generous sponsor this week is Dies to Die For and they are offering the lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in the online store.



This is an engagement card I made for my nephew to congratulate him on his fantastic news!  I've used a lovely LOTV stamp and coloured it with my promarkers,  I used my Go-Kreate dies for the base card and I think I need some more of these as the shapes they have are fab!


The papers are by First Edition and I've also added a couple of embossed layers.  The squares with the couple's initials on are also from the paper pad 'Love Letters' and I thought it would add a special touch to the card, just to personalise it a bit more!  The bunting and a few pearls were the finishing touch and I hope the happy couple like their card!

So why not join in with this week's challenge and have a look on the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what the Design Team have been up to!

As always, to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Letraset products and follow the theme.  Please can you help by stating which Letraset product you have used on your creation, thanks.

Thank you so much for dropping by and good luck!

Hugs, Karen xx
