The Paper Shelter Challenge #294 - Stitching Faux or Real

It's time for a new weekly challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week the challenge is to use faux or real stitching.


I have used a printed image from The Paper Shelter called "I can fix". I normally use a digital stamp and colour it in but I decided to try the printed image this week and it is fabulous. You have to try it! I used a Prima stitching stamp around the edges of the image and the stitch-edge tag and distressed the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink and both were cut out with dies. My paper is from a Hot Off The Press paper pack called Floral Fantasy. The tool corner frame is a die called "Tool Corner" by Amy Design and "Mini Fanciful Flourish Left" by Cheery-Lynn Designs.

A few other pics show off the gorgeous flowers, brads, corner and lace bow.







This challenge is sponsored by The Paper Shelter with an amazing prize of a $30 gift certificate provided you use one of their products on your card. You could use a digital stamp, paper or a printable image and there is a huge selection to choose from on their website. If you don’t use a Paper Shelter product you could still win 3 images of your choice. You can enter three projects but at least one must have a Paper Shelter product.



Be sure to pop over to The Paper Shelter blog challenge and look at the card
posted by the other members of the design team.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful creations entered.

I will be entering my card into the following challenges this week:

Glitter n Sparkle #239 - For the ladies
Creatalicious #115 - Anything goes
A Snowflakes Promise #40 - Anything goes
Allsorts #415 - Ring an ring 'O Roses

Winnie Fruit Punch Wishes




I have made a multi fold card and you might see a few more of these in the near future because I love the layout. I used the adorable Winnie Fruit Punch Wishes stamp from Polkadoodles, coloured her with Copics, added Crystal Stickles to the flower centres and heart and tiny dots of Liquid Pearls around the image. I used Ground Espresso ink to distress the edges of all my papers which are from the First Edition Isabelle paper pad. I cut the image from a Spellbinders die, used a Martha Stewart heart border punch and added some doilies. The sentiment is part of a stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy and the border is another Spellbinders die called Fancy Label Tags 4. I recently went on a shopping spree and found this beautiful lace and these stunning Prima flowers.

Here's a few more pics of my card from different angles...



And some close up shots...

Fluffy Frannie by Sherri Baldy

I just had to buy a few of the new Fluffy Besties by Sherrie Baldy. They are so beautiful. I coloured Frannie with Copics and added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers, cup, jewels and shoes. My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret Collection. I used a little distressing tool on the to roughen up the edges of the papers. My sentiment tag was cut on the Cameo. The butterfly is by Petaloo and the beautiful flowers are from The Ribbon Girl to which I've added pearls and a few other flowers.
