Animals

Hi crafters,
We have a great new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme has been chosen by our lovely Nat.  She would like to see 'Animals' on your creations this week - nice and easy!
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and they are offering the lucky winner 2 digi images from their online store.
All Dressed Up stamps

We were lucky to have one of their images to use on our cards and I chose this one, 'Christmas Deer'
I've used a layout from a recent workshop and all the backing papers have been inked with 'Antique Linen'.  I inked the edges of the poinsettia with a white gel pen and added glitter to the edges. I inked up some leaves too and after colouring the image with my promarkers, I added some frantage to the edges.  A sentiment and a few die cut trees finished off the card.  I added some glossy accents to the eyes and a lot of glitter on the trees - doesn't show in the photo unfortunately!
Why not join in with this nice and easy challenge and be in with a chance of winning this fab prize.  Just make sure you use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and follow the theme.  I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations.

Include a Number

Hi crafters,
Well it's been another busy couple of weeks.  We've taken our youngest son back to Lincoln to start his second year of Uni and we've been down to Oxford for my eldest son's graduation.  We had such a lovely day and it really was a day to remember!
I'm back into my crafting to take my mind off the fact that both my boys are away from home!  There's a great new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Lorraine C has given us a theme of 'Include a number'.  We are kindly sponsored by Cowling and Wilcox and there will be 2 lucky winners this week.  1 will win a pack of 6 promarkrs in Neutral Tones and 1 winner will win a pack of 6 promarkers in Vibrant Tones.
 Cowling & Wilcox

I've made a 1st Birthday card for a friend's daughter this week and used an old Digistamp Boutique image,
I decided to go with a white and yellow colour scheme and found the perfect dotty paper for the background.  I embossed some white card for one of the layers and added some punched flowers and swirls.  I added a bit of glitter to the image and die cut the number one,  A bit of ribbon and some pearls for the flower centres finished off the card.
 So why not join in with this week's challenge,  You can an 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
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!

Fave Colour Combo

Well the time came at the weekend for my youngest son to return to Uni for his second year and I was very brave!!  The house is very quiet now that both my boys are away.  Ah well, more room for my crafty stash, hee hee!!
It's also time for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Linda would like your creations to have your fave colour combo - nice and easy!

Dr Digi's House of Stamps

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I chose this gorgeous digi called -Alice the Alpaca'.
I chose my fave colour combo of pink and green for my card.  I just used a bit of Tea Green promarker for my Alpaca to match my papers and added a bit of glitter here and there!  Aren't all alpacas this colour?!!!
I added a grass diecut as well as a pearly border to the bottom of the card and a bit of ribbon and heart diecut on the top.  The sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie and the enamel dots just finished it off.
So why not join in with this fab challenge and be in with a chance of winning a great prize.  Just remember to use your Winsor and Newton products on your creation and I look forward to visiting your blogs.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with and I chose this one called 'Dino'.
 Isn't he cute!!  I used a layout from a recent workshop and kept the colours quite monochrome.  I coloured the image with my promarkers and added just a teeny weeny bit of glitter to his spikes!  I put the stars onto strips of acetate and added a couple of buttons too!  Here is another photo showing the fold of the card,

Glitter/Sparkle

Hi crafters,
Hope you're all enjoying the summer and managing to find some time to craft!  I'm hosting this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week and I've set a nice, easy theme of 'Glitter/Sparkle'. I'd love to see your creations with either glitter on your images or sparkly embellishments - it's completely up to you!
We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of  3 digi images from their online store.  They have some gorgeous images so you'll be spoilt for choice.
Crafty Sentiments Designs

This is a card I made for my niece as a Get Well Card.  I've coloured the stamped image with my promarkers and added lots of glitter to the flower and at the base of the image.  We used this layout at our recent workshop and I thought it would work well with these papers.  I made the straws - they're not brilliant but they're not too bad (just need a bit more practice!).
So why not join in with this week's challenge - if you're anything like me I add glitter onto nearly every card!!
Whatever you make - it doesn’t have to be a card -  but as always to be eligible for the prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) and don't forget to follow the theme!
I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations.
Hugs,

Dies to Die For
This card is one I made for my gaming-mad son and I thought this LOTV image 'Oliver Game Boy' was perfect for him!  I coloured the image with my promarkers and found some papers in matching colours.  I added some black stars and corners and a couple of candy dots in the corner.  I also added the Happy Birthday text onto a die cut banner.

This is a great theme and it would be great if you could join in and be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize.  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 and of course follow the theme.

Vibrant Colours

Hi crafters,
Where are these weeks going?  Things have been a little bit crazy lately and my crafting time has been very limited!  My eldest passed his degree with First Class honours, he has a new job in the Lake District which he starts next week, we found a flat for him to rent there and he passed his driving test before he goes!!  We will be taking him up to Cumbria tomorrow - aaargghhh!!
I did manage to get my card done ready for the fab new challenge at Passion for Promarkers,  Our lovely Elaine has chosen the theme of 'Vibrant Colours' - 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.

We were lucky enough to have one of their images to use on our cards this week and I chose 'Jr Hatter - Celeste',
I used a layout from a recent workshop and coloured the image with my promarkers.  I added a bit of stitching to add texture to my card and inked all the papers with distress inks.  Some enamel dots in the centre of the punched flowers were the finishing touch!
Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations for this challenge.

Add a Sentiment

Hi crafters,
Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather we're having and managing to keep cool!
With the World Cup and Wimbledon on the TV - I'm quite happy to be watching a bit of footie and tennis whilst crafting too!
It's time for a brand new challenge at Passion For Promarkers and our lovely Donna has chosen a nice and easy theme  'Add a Sentiment'.
We are kindly sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of  3 digi images from their online store.  Their images are fab and you'll be spoilt for choice with this prize.
The Paper Shelter
We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with and I chose this fab digi called 'Tucan''.
I used a layout that we used at a recent workshop and made this card for my Dad.  I coloured the image with my promarkers and found some papers in matching colours which I inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.  The card in the centre opens so that I could write a little message and I added the sentiment cut from a stitched circle die.  Here's a view of the card when closed.

It's a great fold for a masculine card as there are plenty of details and I didn't feel the need to add anything else!!
So why not join in with this fab challenge.  Just add a sentiment to your card and remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but as always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products.
Thanks for dropping by!

Bears r us

Hi crafters,
I'm back in the dining room crafting again after my son came home from Uni after finishing his degree course!  Oh well, never mind - it's great to have both my boys home again for a few weeks!
I just have to remember where I've hidden everything again, ha ha!!
It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Nat has chosen the nice and easy theme 'Bears r us'.
We are kindly sponsored by Digital Stamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
DSB

They have such a great choice of digis and we were lucky enough to have one to play with for this challenge.
I've used Summer Louie-beer for my card and this was a Birthday Card I made for my Dad!
I used my promarkers and added a bit of Glossy Accent to his nose!  The sentiment comes in the set and I added some enamel dots in matching colours.  I did a bit of doodling as I felt it just needed something and the DAD letters from Home Bargains were the finishing touch! 
So why not join in with this challenge - I'm sure we all have some stamps or digis with bears on them! 
Remember, you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but to be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products.

Summer Fun


Hi crafters,
Hope you're all having a good week and are ready for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Lorraine has chosen the fab theme of  'Summer Fun' - a nice and easy challenge for us!
We are kindly sponsored by 'Some Odd Girl' this week and they are offering the lucky winner a $10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.

Some Odd Girl

I've used a cute House Mouse image on my card this week!  I used my promarkers to colour it in and added lots of glitter!
I used my favourite card shape and the polka dot papers came out again!!  I thought the yellow flower looks like the sun and I also added some shells in the corner to match those in the image.  I also looked absolutely everywhere for a cocktail umbrella to add to my card but I couldn't find them  anywhere! I even had hubby on the case but we couldn't find any shop that stocked them.  In the end I spotted one of my corner dies that looked liked an umbrella and I scored some lines onto it and added it to a cocktail stick!!  It was the best I could do anyway!!
So why not join in with this fab challenge?  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but as always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products.
I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!

Gems / Pearls

Hi crafters,
It's a new week and time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Linda has chosen a nice and easy theme for us and it's 'Gems / Pearls'. 
We are kindly sponsored by Ppinkydolls and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images from their online store.  Their images are amazing and you'll be spoilt for choice with this prize.
Ppinkydolls

I decided to create a keepsake for a friend to celebrate the birth of a baby daughter.  I bought a deep box frame and used my promarkers to colour an LOTV stamp.  I added a bit of glitter here and there and added lots of die cuts to fill the frame,  Some WOC flowers were added as well as a cute little wooden button.  Pearls were added to the bunting and in the corners and I added the name, date and weight of birth to personalise the frame and make it just that little bit more special.  It would be lovely to think that it will be up on the wall for years to come anyway!
So why not join in with this great challenge and be in with a chance of winning s great prize!  You can enter any type of creation and don't forget to follow the theme and use your Winsor and Newton products (formerly Letraset).

Embossing Challenge

Hi Crafters,
I hope you've all had a good week and are ready for another great challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Kitty has chosen the theme this week and she would like to see some 'Embossing' on your cards (wet or dry).
We are kindly sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter this week and they are offering the lucky winner 1 digi image from their online store.  All their images are absolutely gorgeous and the Design Team were lucky enough to have one of their lovely images to play with this week for our cards.  Have a look on their blogs to see what they've been up to - we all chose the same image this week as it was so cute!
Sasayaki Glitter

This image is called 'Gift Amy' and she was great to colour in!
I've used my promarkers and a touch of glitter on the image,  I punched some flowers to match those on one of the parcels and added some emerald dots to the centres.  I stamped my sentiment onto some kraft card, added some white embossing powder (instead of black) and used the heat gun.  I've been wanting to try this technique for a long time and I'll definitely be doing this again!!


 I hope you can join in with the challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.
 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  and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.

Buttons and/or bows

Hi crafters,
Hope you've all had a good week and are ready for a brand new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  I'm hosting the challenge this week and I've chosen the nice and easy theme - 'Buttons and/or bows'.  If you're anything like me I like to add a button on most of my cards so I'm sure you'll be able to join in with the challenge this week!  There's a brilliant prize of a £10.00 voucher to spend at Digi Stamp Boutique who are our kind sponsors for this week.  They have some gorgeous images in their online store so you'll have a great time spending your prize!

DSB

We were lucky enough to have an image to play with from their store and I've used 'Sketchy Flower Frames'  which was great to colour in with my promarkers! 


My polka dot papers were still out after my last card so I went with the polka dots again!!  I had a go at doodling around the card as well to carry on the effect from the frames.  I liked it so much I even doodled around the sentiment!  I added a couple of buttons to the corners as well as a bow on one of the flower stems. I also added a couple of enamel dots as it just needed something else in the space.
There's some ribbon in the centre of the card but I managed to almost cover it up completely.
It would be great if you could join in with my challenge this week.  Don't forget, you can enter any of your creations - it doesn't have to be a card.  Just make sure you use your promarkers and of course, follow the theme.  
I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

Animals

Hi crafters,
I hope you're all having a lovely Easter break and managed to find some time for crafting!  There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Jacky has chosen a nice easy theme for us - 'Animals'.  We are kindly sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images form their online store.
                                                      Crafty Sentiments Designs
This is an amazing prize and their images are all absolutely gorgeous!  I'm sure you all have a stamp or a digi that would suit this challenge so please join in and be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize.
We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with and I chose this one which is called 'Stanley - Heart Wrapped Up',
I've made this card ready for my husband for our Wedding Anniversary which is at the end of this month.  I really wanted to try and colour in the image using black as I've seen some great examples of people's work lately and so I had a go!  The sentiment is from one of Lisa's CD's which was absolutely perfect for this image.  I added a white gel pen to the ribbon to continue the dotty theme and coloured the backing card in the same red as the heart so it matched perfectly!
I could only add a couple of banners and buttons as this is for hubby and I really had to try hard not to add anything else!!  Should I have put some die cut corners on the card or some more hearts?  I felt as though it needed something else but I walked away and left it as a CAS card!
This is a side view showing his lovely shiny nose which I did with a touch of glossy accents.
Well thanks for dropping by and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations.

Babies

Hi crafters,
Well I've lost my craft room again but it's worth it to have my babies back home for Easter!  We've also been decorating our bedroom and I had to move all my crafty stash so guess what - now I can't find anything!  I'm wasting my valuable crafty time with trying to remember where I hid - I mean, kept everything hee hee!!
But enough of my troubles!  I'm here to tell you about the great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Elaine has chosen the fab theme - 'Babies (animals/people)'.
We are kindly sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps - and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher  to spend in their online store.
                                                          Di's Digi Stamps
Luckily I'd made my card before all the upheaval and I've used a gorgeous digi from The Paper Shelter.  It's from a set called 'Funny Giraffes' and I loved colouring this one with my promarkers!
I used my favourite card shape and the papers were a freebie with a magazine.  I added a little wooden dummy and added a die cut baby mobile to the corner.  I also put a small piece of organza under the image and added some WOC flowers in matching colours as the finishing touch.  I made a box for this card so it can be kept as a keepsake.  I added the baby's name and the date of birth to personalise it and make it a little bit more special.  Hope they like it anyway!

So why not enter your card in this week's challenge.  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, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.

Only Girls Allowed

Hi crafters,
Well it's been quite a week with all the snow and ice but hopefully we can get back to normal now!  I used the snow days to catch up on some crafting ready for the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  Our lovely Donna has chosen the fab theme of 'Only Girls Allowed' so it's a great excuse to make some girly cards!
We are kindly sponsored by Ppinkydolls who are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images from their online store.  Their images are stunning and you'll certainly be spoilt for choice!
                                                           Ppinkydolls
We were lucky enough to have one of their images to play with and I chose 'Looking for you'.
I really enjoyed colouring this image with my promarkers and I added a touch of pencil here and there. 
I've embossed the base layer and added some peel offs to the background papers.  This is a fab layout which we used at our recent workshop (thanks Lisa!!) and I added some ribbon and a snazzy button to finish off the card.  This card is for my niece's 21st birthday next month so I hope she likes it!

I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations for this challenge.  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 and of course follow the theme.

Have a Heart


Hi crafters,
I'm back with a card for this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers!  Our lovely Nat has chosen a nice and easy theme for this week entitled 'Have a Heart'.  It could be anything from papers with a heart design, heart embellishments or a heart in the image on your card - so why not join in and be in with a chance of winning a prize!
We are kindly sponsored by 'A Day for Daisies' and they are offering the lucky winner a $12.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Their images are amazing and you're sure to find some you love! 
                                                             ADFD
We were lucky enough to have some of their gorgeous images to play with and I chose 'You may kiss the bride'.
This Wedding Card has been made for a special couple as the husband is French and the bride is Welsh.  So I found some papers with the Eiffel Tower (of course) and on the tag behind the image, there is a verse from the Welsh National anthem!  This is the only way I could think of having something from the two countries on the card!  Hope they like it anyway!
I coloured the image with my promarkers and added plenty of glitter to the dress!  I added some organza ribbon to the tag, some WOC flowers and a few heart embellishments to finish off the card.  Oh and the base layer is embossed with a heart embossing folder and I added some pearls here and there.
Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your gorgeous creations for this challenge.  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 and of course follow the theme.

Love and Kisses

Hi crafters,
Hope you are all keeping warm this week with this cold spell that we are having!
It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Lorraine C has chosen a fab theme - 'Love and kisses'.  Perfect for your Valentines card or it could even just be a Birthday card!
We are kindly sponsored by All Dressed Up and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of 2 digi images from their online store.
                                                    All Dressed Up stamps
We were lucky enough to have one of their gorgeous images for our cards this week and I've used 'A kiss for valentines' for my project this week.
I loved colouring this one in with my promarkers and those giraffes are too cute!  I love pink and cream together and so I decided to colour the giraffes in these colours as well!!  That's why I love colouring in so much i think - a bit of artistic licence now and then is great!!
I die cut some flowers out of the pages of an old book and inked the edges with 'Antique Linen' distress ink.  I embossed the base layer and inked the edges of all the papers as well.  I found some pearl brads for the centre of the flowers and a couple of pink buttons were the finishing touch!
So why not have a go at making a card using this theme and enter it in our challenge for this week.  You never know - you could win a couple of gorgeous digis!
Don't forget to use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your lovely creations!
See you soon,

Lots of layers

Hi crafters,
Hope you've had a great week and are ready for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers.  Our lovely Linda has chosen a really easy theme for us this week and it's 'Lots of Layers'.  A great excuse to use up some of the lovely paper stash that we all have - I've decided I'm not buying any papers this year - I'm going to use up all the papers I already have, even the really nice ones that I haven't been able to part with up to now!!!
We are very kindly sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique and they are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to use in their online store.  There are so many digis to choose from for absolutely every occasion and they are all such great images.

We were lucky enough to have an image to use for our cards this week so have a look at all the lovely Design Team cards for some ideas.
I've used 'Spring Bentley' on my card and I had a bit of a go at creating some fur for the little bunny!  I used my promarkers first for the base colour then I used my colour pencils to add the detail.

I found some coordinating papers to add the layers and added a trellis die behind the image (although I did a great job of covering it up!!)  I even got the sewing machine out and added some stitching to all the layers.  My little fence die came out again too and I added some punched flowers with gems to them.  Some matching WOC flowers were the finishing touch and a bit of glitter here and there!

I look forward to visiting your blogs to see all your lovely entries - remember it doesn't have to be a card, it can be any type of creation but to be eligible for the prize, you must use your Winsor & Newton products.

See you soon,
Karen xx
