Pocket Full of Posies Challenge # 6

This time the Pocket Full of Posies challenge theme is ‘Floral Fantasy’, and our sponsors for this fortnight are Craft Brulee.

Here is my card for the challenge. The image is one of Sugar Nellie’s gorgeous Leanne Ellis designs, which I’ve coloured with Promarkers. The beautiful lace and lollipop flower are from Craft Brulee, and the other flowers are from my local craft shop.

I must apologise for the lack of blog posts recently: I’ve not been very well, but I hope to get back to blogging more regularly soon – I hope you’ll bear with me!

Thank you for visiting and taking a look at my card.

Passion for Promarkers – Fantasy/Mythology

This week the Passion for Promarkers challenge is being sponsored by Sugar Nellie, who are giving our lucky winner two of their gorgeous stamps, ‘Party Parade’ and ‘A Big Bunch of Love’.

Party Parade 

Big Bunch of Love 

Here is my card for this week’s challenge; this time the theme was chosen by Tracy, and it’s to make a card with a Fantasy/Mythical image.  I used a stamp by Sweetpea Stamps, available from Crafts and Me, on my card – isn’t she lovely?!  I used scraps from my stash for the background, and the flower was a silk one that I took to pieces and re-assembled, with a gem brad and a decorative spacer for the centre.  Please scroll down for my Promarker colouring recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pale Pink.
Dress: Baby Blue, Duck Egg, Pastel Green.
Wings: Cool Aqua, Blender Pen, and a touch of Stickles.
Moon: Ivory, Vanilla, Oatmeal.

Thank you for taking a look at my card this week!

Passion for Promarkers – Michele’s Sketch

This week’s Passion for Promarkers challenge is to follow Michele’s lovely sketch with an added element, which is to make your own flowers.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are giving our winner a set of five Promarkers.

I used plain off-white flowers, which I painted with pearlised watercolour paints. This has the effect of stiffening the flower and giving it the look of pearly porcelain. I added a pearly brad and a silver spacer to the flower centre for further decoration. The designer papers are by Basic Grey, and the stamp is by Sugar Nellie. Please scroll down to see my Promarker colouring recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink.Hair: Vanilla, Tan, Caramel.

Clothes: Lime Zest, Pear Green, Pale Pink, Dusky Rose, Cardinal Red, Caramel, Cinnamon.

Butterfly and Mushrooms: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cardinal Red, Almond, Tan.

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:

Passion for Promarkers – Girls, Girls, Girls!

We have a fab challenge for all you girlie girls at Passion for Promarkers this week!  The theme is ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, and it’s a good excuse to go wild, and play with all your lovely pink stash – well, that was my excuse anyway! 

Our sponsors for this challenge are Letraset, who are giving a prize of a set of five Promarkers to our lucky winner.

I think that many of you will agree that it would be hard to get more girlie than the luscious Gorjuss Girls by Sugar Nellie!  I chose this gorgeous little fairy girl for my card and, of course, her dress just had to be pink. As I love to use green with pink,  I couldn’t resist adding the pink and green combo papers by Craftwork Cards to my stash.  Although they are basically Christmas papers, I think they also work well at other times of the year.  Scroll down for my Promarker recipe.

Promarkers used:

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink.

Hair: Chestnut, Umber.

Dress: Pale Pink, Cocktail Pink, Baby Pink.

Wings: Meadow Green, Leaf Green, with Glitter Glue.

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.
