Passion for Promarkers – The Young Ones

Our Passion for Promarker challenge this week is to make something for the young ones in our lives. Our sponsors for this challenge are Sugar Nellie, who are giving our winner two of their lovely stamps, ‘Come Fly With Me’ and ‘Perfect Playmates’, as a prize. These adorable stamps can be found on the Funky Kits website, where you can also purchase all the Sugar Nellie range of stamps.

I used another Sugar Nellie design on my card, this time from their ‘Home Grown’ line.  I coloured this little chap to match the  Basic Grey designer papers that I used.  The card stock is by DCWV, and the sentiment stamp is by Stampin’ Up. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe.

Passion for Promarkers – Two Images

Hello Passion for Promarkers fans! The challenge for this week is to use two stamped images on your card. This time we are sponsored by Letraset, who will  be awarding our winner a set of five Promarkers. 

The design team is joined this week by two very talented new members, Emma and Tracy – welcome girls!  To celebrate the occasion they will each be giving an extra prize of  a Promarkers Stamping Kit to one lucky person, so don’t forget to check out their blogs and leave a comment – you have to be in it to win it!

I used two images by Sugar Nellie on my card:  Hamish in his woolly jumper, and Angus the dog; both can be found at Funky Kits.  I stamped Angus first, then masked him before stamping Hamish slightly behind him.  The gorgeous designer papers are by My Mind’s Eye, and the peacock cardstock is  Bazzill Bling. Scroll down to see which Promarkers I used to colour my images.

Promarker Recipe:

Skin and Hair: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink, Caramel, Tan, Cinnamon.

Passion for Promarkers – Cocoa and Rose Pink

The challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week is to use the shades Cocoa and Rose Pink as the main colours on your chosen image.

Our sponsors this week are Yellow Moon/Baker Ross, who are offering a prize of a £10 gift voucher to spend on any of the craft supplies and children’s crafts at Baker Ross.

This is what our lovely DT member Debbi has to say about Baker Ross:

“This is a great place to buy crafty stuff for kids – ideal to keep them occupied during the duller or wetter days. I’ve bought loads from here, they also have a terrific selection of craft blanks e.g. wee gift boxes, pencil boxes bags etc. And I’m going to be really cheeky here and ask you all a favour – if any of you place an order at Yellow Moon, when you checkout there is a page that will ask you for a source code so that the commission on your order goes to a charity or group. As many of you know I’m the secretary/treasurer and co-founder of Extra Special Parents which is a support charity for parents and carers of children with special needs. Our source code is SSH10729 and I would really appreciate it if you could use that so that ESP receives the commission.”

Here is my card, and as usual the Promarker recipe is below the card.  I have used one of the fab Leanne Ellis designed stamps by Sugar Nellie, which are available from Funky Kits.  The papers are by Papermania and Basic Grey, and I’ve embossed a piece of Brown Bazzill Bling card with one of the latest Cuttlebug folders called ‘Victoria’. The sentiment, oval and scalloped oval punches are by Stampin’ Up.
