Passion for Promarkers week 14

Our challenge sponsors at Passion for Promarkers this week are the wonderful folk at Letraset, who, as you know, produce the fabulous Promarkers.  They are offering a prize of a set of five pens to the lucky winner.

ProMarkerInfo

This week’s colours were chosen by the lovely Sue, and she has given you a choice of four: Lavender, Lilac, Amethyst and Aubergine, and you must use at least two of these colours on your card.  As these are also some of my favourite shades, I’m using all four!

The image is by Hanglar and Stanglar, and is coloured with Promarkers, of course! The background paper is by Paperpizzaz, and the floral one was a magazine freebie.  The purple card is Bazzill Bling, and I cut the mat with a Nestabilities label set.  The scalloped punches and sentiment are by Stampin’ Up, and the hydrangea flowers are by Prima. Please scroll down to see my colouring recipe.

Last of the Sneak Peeks

I think I may have been a little confuzzled about the Elzybells release date yesterday; that will teach me to blog at stupid o’clock, won’t it?! Anyway, today is the day you have all been waiting for, but I have my last card to show you before you head over to the online store to purchase all the lovely new stamps.

I’ve used the pretty Strawberry Picker image again, but this time I’ve coloured her totally with Promarkers.  The gorgeous paper is by Crafts-Too, and I’ve added a border made with the watermelon stamp from the Mini Messages Summertime set.  I used Nestabilities to die-cut the image, and a Fiskars border punch for the scalloped border.  The flowers and brad are from my stash.

As I’ve mentioned, this is my last new release for the design team, but I’m sure that it’s not goodbye, but ‘au revoir’, as I’m sure to see you all when I’m stalking the Elzybells blog and shop! I do hope that you will still call in now and again to see what I’ve been making with my collection of Elzy stamps!

Elzybells Sneak Peek 14

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.

PFP – Cornflower and Cocoa

Can you believe that it’s time for the 7th challenge at Passion for Promarkers already?! This week we are using the colours Cornflower and Cocoa, along with a gorgeous sketch by Debbi.  I’m using a new stamp, which I bought from Little Claire at the Newbury stamp show on Saturday – isn’t she sweet?  The papers are by Crafts-Too, K & Co and Basic Grey, and all the cardstock used is by Bazzill. I cut the labels, oval and oval scallops with my Nestabilities dies, and the sentiment is by Whiff of Joy. Scroll down for the colouring recipe.

Passion for Promarkers – Apple and Pastel Pink

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who took the time to enter our first challenge last week.  We were overwhelmed by the fantastic response, and we enjoyed looking at all your cards.

Welcome to the second challenge at Passion for Promarkers, which is to use the colours Apple Green and Pastel Pink on your card.  The lovely Hanglar & Stanglar image was one that was given to me, and I coloured her in the required colours with my Promarkers.  I edged the oval, which I cut out with my Nesties, with a Versamark ink pad in Sage, and stamped small leaves (Art Impressions) all around with Tea Green and Olive inks.  I used papers from the Porcelain range by Basic Grey, and the pale green cardstock is by Bazzill. The flowers are by Prima, the sentiment stamp is by Stampin’ Up, and brads and ribbon are from my stash.

This week there is a fabulous prize of a Whiff of Joy stamp – Shy Willow – kindly donated by Denise, so why not join us for another fun challenge?!  We look forward to seeing your cards!

Here’s One for the Girls!

Elzybells sneakpeek label

My Elzybells sneak peek for today has a little more feminine charm!  It was great to be able to make some cards for men; like many of you, I always struggle to do that, but it was lovely to be able to make something a little more girlie this time.

I used one of Elzybells’ Teddy Angel stamps; isn’t she cute?  I coloured her with Promarkers, and added a touch of glitter glue to her wings and wand, but this is hardly noticeable on the photo.  I cut out the image with a Nestabilities Label Four die, and matted it on the same Bazzill Bling cardstock that I used for the rest of the card.  The flowers are by Prima, and I glittered the brads at the centre to add a little more fairy bling to the card. The designer papers used are from the Basic Grey ‘Gypsy’ range, and the sentiments on the outside and inside are also from the Elzybells new release. 

See you all tomorrow for my last sneak peek.  It’s also release day, so you will be able to flex the plastic a little more at the on-line shop!
