Passion for Promarkers In the Garden

Hi Bloggers, I hope you are all well, Passion for Promarkers time again already, where is the time going?

This week our theme has been chosen by the boss Denise and it is 'in the Garden', I just had to ink up 'Carnation' from Pure Innocene that I got from Stampeezee on Saturday. I teamed this cutie up with some Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paper available here and my Blossom nestabilities in stock here. I thought all of these floral elements fitted the challenge perfectly!!

The sentiment I used is from this Whimsy set here and the little embellishments I used are called 'Dew Drops' and are available in lots of colours here

Carnation was coloured with Promarkers in the following colours:

Burgundy, Red, Cocoa, Sandstone, cool grey 1, Duck egg blue, Turquoise, Blush, Pastel Pink, Dusky Pink, Leaf green, Forest Green and the Blender

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment so I know you stopped by.

Passion for Promarkers - Food & Drink

Hi bloggers, hope you all had a great weekend, it's Passion for Promarkers time again and this week Denise has chosen the theme 'Food & Drink', so we need to see something food or drink related, or both.....simples!!

As soon as I saw this weeks challenge I knew that I wanted to use Birthday Flopsey from My Favourite Things, available here at Stampeezee, as you can see Flopsey's ears would not fit in my nestie so I made it so they stuck out, love that technique!!

I have got a bit addicted to MFT lately as Stampeezee are now stocking more of their fab products!! The border was created with the MFT open scallop die available here

The layout for my card is last weeks Mojo Monday sketch, I am a day late so I can't enter the challenge but I liked the sketch anyway.

I coloured Flopsey with the following Promarkers:

Pastel blue, pastel pink, Turquoise, cool aqua, Umber, Cinnamon, Sandstone, Gold, Tan & Blender

The sentiment is from the same set as Flopsey, you get the Flopsey and 3 sentiments, Bargain!!!

My papers are Basic Grey Hopscotch in Stock

Anyway, I hope you like my card, thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them and I will know you have popped in and will stop by your place.x

Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush

Hi bloggers, hope you are all well, another week gone by and time again for Passion for Promarkers, this week Vix has chosen the theme 'Sugar Rush', I have gone for cute & girly.

I chose to use a cute image from La La Land Crafts, Ballarina Marci, some of this adoarable range will soon be available at Stampeezee....can't wait, they have some cute images!!

I made a trinket box using the tutorial I used last year from Kirsten's blog, hubby converted it to metric for me, details on this post here

The layout is from this weeks Friday Sketchers, fab sketch by Claudia

This is the view at the back, I used a Whimsy Stamp from the handmade letter seals set, in stock here at Stampeezee, I cut the image out with nesties

Look at the sentiment I used, it is perfect for this image. It is from a set called Sweet Spring Jolinne available here at Stampeezee, I stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento.

The nesting die set I used for the sentiment is by Die-namics from MFT also from Stampeezee and should be back in stock any day now, I had the last one...isn't it just fab?? Check out the other MFT dies Debbie has in stock, they are fantastic.

Check out the pearls in Marci's hair below, they are by Stampin Up, they are tiny, love them, they come in a pack of all different sizes, I got mine from the lovely Rach

I also decoupaged her flower and skirt.......how adorable!!

I coloured my image in the following PM's:

Cerise, Baby Pink, Pale pink, Leaf green, Blush, Dusky pink, Pastel Pink, Cinnamon, Umber, Cool grey 1 & 2 and the blender.

I used papers from the Lost & Found collection from My Minds Eye, they have the range in Stock in Hobbycraft at the moment, bit pricey though!!! The cardstock is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, I used my last few sheets on this project!!

The ribbon I used is seam binding available in 20 colours here at Stampeezee

Not sure if you can tell from the pics but I went a bit mad with the crystal stickles!!

My card also qualifies for the DYSU challenge which is 'anything goes' and I have entered my project into the La La Land Crafts very own Gallery for March.
