Challenge 365 'Spots and/or Stripes'

Hi crafters,

There's another great challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and the theme is 'Spots and/or stripes'. 
We are kindly sponsored this week by Uniko Stamps and they are offering 1 stamp set of the winner's choice.
                                                       
I've used both spots and stripes on my card this week! I absolutely love polka dots but I love stripey paper too and couldn't decide which to use, so I used both!!
I've used a gorgeous Stamping Bella image called 'Uptown Girl Posh Has A Present' and she's been coloured in with my Promarkers. I added a die cut flower and some punched flowers which I love making at the moment and I'm adding them to all my cards!
I added a die cut border to the stripey paper and some ribbon too and added glitter to the swirly dies!  Some pearls and the sentiment were the finishing touch for this girly card and I hope they like it!


So why not have a go and enter this week's challenge.  Don't forget to use your Letraset products and follow the theme.
See you soon,
Karen xx

'Favourite Colour Combo'





Hi crafters,
It's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week.  The theme is 'Favourite Colour Combo' so whether it's pink and brown, red and blue or yellow and white - you choose!
We are kindly sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique who are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their on-line store and there are some fantastic digis to choose from!
                                                       DSB
My card has been made using one of their images from a set called 'Edwin and Hetty' and it was a fab image to colour in!  I've used a mix of my promarkers and flexmarkers and kept the colouring quite light.
My favourite colour combo is pink and grey - my front room is decorated in these colours as well!!
I've embossed the base card and added some checked and polka dot papers,  I couldn't find any grey card in the right shade so I remembered a trick we've been taught in my workshop and used the same promarkers that I used on the image, to colour the card to mount the image and papers on!!
I added some punched flowers, ribbon and swirly die cuts as well as some pearls for the finishing touch!  Oh and some glitter on the little pink heart, of course!!
I hope you can join in with this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers,  Don't forget to use your Letraset products and let us know where you've used them on your creation.
Thanks for dropping by!
Hugs, Karen xx

Make us smile

Hi crafters,

I'm back with my card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers - wow, these week's are flying by aren't they!!
This week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine C and it's "Make Us Smile",
We are very kindly sponsored by Aurora Wings who are offering the lucky winner $15 worth of digis.
As always, to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Letraset products and follow the theme!  Don't forget to say which Letraset product you've used on your creation.
                                                          AuroraWings
For my card. I've used one of the gorgeous images from Aurora Wings called 'Cupcake Sprite' and she was absolutely gorgeous to colour in with my promarkers.
I made the card in a recipe book style and we made one of these in one of our workshops ages ago so I thought I'd make another one!  The recipe includes - Mix together with a handful of smiles, so I thought it was perfect for this challenge!
I used a daisy punch for the flowers and added some chalk to the centres to match the colours in the card and a bit of bunting gave it the Bake Off feel (now that it's back on our screens!!),
As it's an Easel style card, I added another little book with the sentiment and a little die cut spoon! Some ribbon and pearls were the finishing touches and I inked the edges with Antique Linen.
I hope you like my little card - it was nice to make a different shaped card for a change!!
Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to enter the challenge!
Good luck
Hugs, Karen xx

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

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!!

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!!

'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
