So get creating. A card, tag, project etc as long as you use Promarkers on it.

The blog candy on offer is a set of the New Metallic colours (6)
Here are a couple of cards I have made using Promarkers and Flexmarkers just for a bit of inspiration

You bloggers are amazing!!!

Hotshot Crafts first challenge finishes this Friday. We have been overwhelmed by the number of entries so far. I was scared that we would only get about 10 at the most. At the time of posting this we have 93 entries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

So I was wondering, could you bloggers make it 100 entries??????????????

Wouldn't that be fantastic if we had 100 ( or more) entries for our first ever challenge  AND  just wait till you see the candy on offer for challenge number 2!

I shall leave it with you wonderful, wonderful people

Warm hugs Sarah x

How to:Flower card made with X Cut dies

This is a very quick and easy flower card.

  • Cut out several sizes and layers of your chosen material  ( I used Baking Parchment!) with X Cut flower die
  • stamp over each layer. I lightly stamped with Papermania Urban stamps ( music)
  • layer up the flower. Make a hole in the middle of all the layers and attach a brad to hold layers together
  • Brush over ends of petals with Distress inks with tool applicator
  • Emboss a piece of card ( cut to fit card blank) and emboss through an embossing folder. Distress ink it
  • Cut leaves from your chosen die , colour it with distress inks and stamp over ( music )
 And that is how easy it is

We hope you will have a go. Email us with your card and we will put it on the blog
