Passion for Promarkers – Apricot and Cool Aqua

It’s the turn of one of our lovely new Guest Designers, Sam, to choose the colours for this week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and she has chosen ‘Apricot and Cool Aqua’.  The other compulsory requirement is that you must make your own flowers to decorate your card.

I have used a gorgeous digital download  from Charmed Cards and Craft for my image, and I have coloured her with Promarkers in the required colours.  The colouring recipe can be found beneath the card.  The sentiment is also from the same download package. The papers that I used are by Fancy Pants, and the cardstock is ‘Cameo Coral’ by Stampin’ Up. My flowers were punched from Retro Flower punches by EK Success, in two sizes, and a paper rose was added to the centre of each flower. I added crystal glitter to the fairy’s wings and to the petals of the flowers for a touch of sparkle.

Elzybells Summer Release Sneak Peeks

 Elzybells sneakpeek label

Welcome to the latest Elzybells Sneak Peeks! I’ve used the delicious ‘Strawberry Picking’ girl on my card today; isn’t she gorgeous? As usual with Elzybells stamps, this image lends itself so well to paper piecing, and I’ve used the same Basic Grey paper as the background to piece the girl’s dress.  The rest of the image is coloured with Promarkers. The ‘Happiness’ sentiment stamp is also one of Elzybells new stamps, as is the ‘Petit Strawberry’. All the papers used are from the Basic Grey Euphoria collection, and the textured card is by American Crafts. The scalloped border is die-cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

The new stamps will be on sale from Wednesday 23rd from the Elzybells on-line shop, but come back tomorrow to see my next sneak peek!

Passion for Promarkers – Ruby and Gold

The Passion for Promarkers challenge colours this week are Ruby and Gold, and the added twist is to add gems to your card. This gorgeous combination reminds me of shades of autumn, so I made an appropriate card. The image is by Hanglar & Stanglar, and I used papers by Stampin’ Up and Crafts-Too. The embossing on the red card was done with a Cuttlebug folder, and the scalloped frame is cut with Nestabilities.  The lovely scallop border is made with a Martha Stewart punch, and the gems are from my stash.  Scroll down to see the Promarker colouring recipe under the card.

Our sponsors this week are Emerald Crafts, who are offering a £10 voucher to the winner of this challenge, so why not have a go?  Remember that you must use Promarkers in the colours stated, and add that week’s extra element to your card, to qualify for the prize.

Elzybells Challenge 18

The Elzybells Challenge for this fortnight is to make a matching interior for your card, and also to have a coordinating envelope.  I chose the ‘In the Dog House’ stamp for my image – isn’t this little pup adorable?!  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut out it with the Nestabilities Labels One set, then I cut a larger label in blue to make a frame for the image. The papers and blue card are from HOTP, and I used a Martha Stewart border punch to embellish the blue edges. The sentiment is from Elzybells’ Mini Tags, and is set in a Nestabilities die-cut circle and scalloped circle.  I added a light green grosgrain ribbon to complete the card.

Here is the inside of my card; it mirrors the front, but without the stamped image or embellishments.

And this is my matching envelope.  Part of the image was die-cut with a smaller die from the same label set as I used on the card, and the blue border was made with the Martha Stewart punch and some matching paper.

I hope that you like my card and matching envelope for this challenge.  Pop back on Friday for some more tempting goodies from Elzybells!
