Feeling Blue

 Another Tuesday already - this year is going so fast, it's nearly Christmas!

We have a new challenge at Passion for Markers - 'Make It Cute'  - a nice easy one for you, please visit the PFM blog for more details and some super cute inspiration from the Team 2 girls.

I used an image from All Dressed Up Stamps (our sponsor for this challenge) and it was so easy to find an image to fit the challenge as all their images are so cute!

I decided to move away from the pinks as most of my cards seem to be pink! I decided to go for brown and blue - this is outside my comfort zone as I have a bit of a mental block when it comes to blue, but I think she came out well in the end

Bee Happy

 Morning Crafters, it's Tuesday again, so, you know what that means! Yes, we have a new challenge for you at Passion for Promarkers - we woud like to see your project feature 'Something (or things) Beginning with the letter B'

I decided to make my main feature  Bees and I found this super cute image on Etsy, isn't she sweet?! I wanted to make my card hexagonal - like honeycomb, but the nearest dies I have are octagonal, I think it turned out ok anyway! My things beginning with a B are - bees, black, bow and Birthday

Surprise!

It's Tuesday again - so that means a new challenge has started at Passion for Markers and this week the theme is 'Add A Sentiment' - nice and easy!  Our sponsor is Dr Digi's House Of Stamps and so I haved used their image 'Connie Confectionery' - she just makes me smile and as I have aquired a few more Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend pens , I have used a gorgeous pink one to colour up the image, I have kept my card simple again as I'm just not into 'difficult' at the moment:


 Papers - 'Soft Cuddles (pink)' - LOTV

I used a petal die for my 'balloons'

Finished off with pink gems and white bows

Totally Turquoise

Morning everyone, We have a new challenge starting today at Passion for Markers  and we would like you to 'Add A Tag' to your projects.

Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments and I have used one of their lovely digi stamps on my DT card - this is 'Emmi Loo - Just Me'

Things have been pretty hectic for me recently and so I kept my card fairly simple, using my second favourite colour - turquoise and I have a confession to make - I used a Spectrum Noir 'Tri-blend' marker for all the turquoise colouring and I must admit I found having 3 shades of the same colour in one pen really simple and convenient.


Papers - 'Perfect Partners (mint and white) - The Paper Boutique

I used Hunkydory's 'Inverted Corner Rectangle' nesting dies as well as a tag and a daisy die and  finished things off with a small white bow

 But I have persevered as we have a new challenge at Passion for Markers and this week it's 'Celebrate' , for my DT card I have used an image from our sponsor Sheepski Designs ( I'm really into Gnomes at the moment and couldn't resist this image)
