SANTA'S GIFT


This gorgeous Santa is a very old Magnolia rubber stamp, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.  I used Liquid Pearls for the fur on his clothing and added a few dots around the image.  My papers are from the Echo Park I Love Winter pack.  The sentiment is a Lili of The Valley stamp.  The 2 corner swirls were cut on the Cameo.  The little tree is Jolee's.

KNITTING RITA


I have used a Pink Gem Design digi, called Knitting Rita, and coloured her with Promarkers.  I knitted the long scarf with twine and made the little knitting needles from toothpicks and Liquid Pearls.  The background was embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder.  The little doilies are Bo Bunny, and the crocheted flower is from Imagine That.  The flowers are Magnolia and Prima, and the little teacup is a Darice Timeless Mini.

MY CYCLIST


We all struggle to get creative when making cards for men (well... I do anyway!), but this one was quite a simple make for me.  

The bicycle was cut on my Cameo.  The paper is from the KaiserCraft Barber Shoppe pack.  The stickers are EK Success Sticko and Art Artwork.

MY STYLE


My papers and the embellishments for this card are all from the Bo Bunny Petal Lane collection.  The bicycle is a Marianne Design die cut.  The stamp is a Paper Shelter digi, called My Style, and I have coloured her with markers.  I actually coloured her legs accidentally - they're meant to be long socks with just a strip of leg visible, so I had to just go with it at that point.  I think she looks cute though.

PASSION FOR PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #424: MEGA CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE REMINDER






It is our MEGA CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE at Passion for Promarkers, and there are HEAPS of prizes up for grabs!

WARNING!! THIS IS A LONG POST WITH LOTS OF PHOTOGRAPHS!!


First what you need to know about the challenge:
The theme Denise has chosen for our MEGA CHRISTMAS challenge is: 
ADD A SENTIMENT, 
and the challenge runs for a whole month - until the 2nd of January 2018.  We have a limit of 3 entries per person.  Most importantly, there are super prizes up for grabs!

7 images ($21 voucher)
£10 voucher
$12 voucher
£15 voucher
$12 voucher
3 digi images
1 digi image
€10 voucher
1 stamp set (must be in stock)
How fantastic are these prizes!!! 

Now for the details about my card.  The word MEGA got into my head, and I decided I wanted to create a little more than a card.  I wanted to make a nativity scene, but realised I didn't have any nativity-style digis to work with, so I made a not-nativity Christmas scene!

I have used 4 Polkadoodles digis from the Winnie White Christmas collection, and coloured them with ProMarkers. I added pearls and pom poms.  The sentiment is also from the Winnie White Christmas collection.  





Next I made a box for them to go into, and added paper from the First Edition Christmas Promise pack.  I glued cotton wool ripple to the bottom with double sided tape.



I then placed everything into the ripples:  Large trees and reindeers were cut on the Cricut (Christmas Cartridge), the small trees were cut using Poppy Crafts dies; and the mice are Dress It Up buttons







And just to show you the chaotic process (I think I used every ProMarker I have!):



Well I hope you have a lot of fun participating our Mega Challenge!  I've loved seeing what you've created so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of our Mega Month produces!  You can enter here, and while you're there, you can check out what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration.

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!!
