Passion For Promarkers Challenge

Hi all,

Hope you're well and having a good week so far. I recently christened some of my cute Magnolia stamps that I bought *cough* back in December, and thought I'd use my Promarkers and give them a go with these cards.

I made two cards recently, in two different colour combos for a couple of friends and thought I'd post them now that it's safe to do so :) Thank you Aimes for suggesting I enter the first one in the Passion For Promarkers Challenge - Week 14 - A Passion For Purple, good idea!

I really enjoyed using this new stamp of mine and can't wait to stamp and colour more in the near future. Hope you like:

Stamps: Hostess Level 1 - Best Yet, Simply Said. Non-SU: Magnolia "Standing Fall Tilda".
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Almost Amethyst, Whisper White, Pixie Pink, Close To Cocoa and Chocolate Chip.
Ink Pad:
SU Almost Amethyst and Close To Cocoa. Versamark Stamp Pad and
Memento Tuxedo Black.
Accessories: SU Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Promarkers in various colours. Paper Shapers - Large Corner Rounder Punch.

Have a good day.

Bye for now,



  1. Great colouring Alex and how different they look for the same stamp. I'm sure I can beat you on having stamps I've not used since I bought them, lol. They're just there for stroking right? Sara xx

  2. Alex these are adorable! Your colouring rocks! You could enter the first one for the current challenge over on A Passion for Promarkers!
    Really glad you Christened these stamps - don't worry, I'm guilty of neglect too!

  3. You know how much I love these cards Alex & I'm thrilled to be the proud owner of one!

    Thanks a million hun

    Luv Steph xxx

  8. Hi Alex, both cards are so gorgeous. I love the stunning image and your colouring is perfect. Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

  9. Alex, this is one of my fave Tildas, and you've made two lovely, lovely cards with her. I like the scallop circle for the sentiment - it echoes the flower on her hat.
    I've got a few stamps that are still in the packets, too - hoping to get them inky soon!
