The Paper Shelter Challenge #338 - Round it Up


I have been wanting to make a circle easel card for a while so this was the perfect card for challenge.  My stamp is called Pastel Gothika and is a pre-coloured digi stamp. My papers are from the Maja Designs Enjoying Outdoors paper pack.  I used a piece of dry spaghetti to roll up the edges of my papers which worked great.  The doily was cut on the Cameo and I added some distress inks to give it a bit of colour and curled the edges up.  I added some lace and a range of beautiful flowers and ribbon.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #336 - Die Cuts


This week at The Paper Shelter challenge, our theme is Die Cuts, so I tried to use as many as I could. I used a geometric frame, a lamp, swirls, a buckle and a tag.  My digital stamp is called Moving In Together which I've coloured with Copics.  My papers are from the beautiful Prima Wild + Free paper pack.  I added a hammer and tape measure button because everyone needs to keep those handy when moving.  Ask me, I know!  I have just done this.  I added a laser cut wooden dog, some ribbons and a bow from some pretty ribbon I bought a while ago.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #334 - Flowers



This week's challenge was so much fun using a variety of beautiful flowers to embellish my card.  I used The Paper Shelter pre-coloured digital image called Sunshine. My background paper is from the MME Pretty Things paper pack.  I added some distress ink to a doily.  My strip of lace is from Bella Paperie and I added some peach sticky pearls to the lace and randomly on the card. 

Some close up pics of the flowers and sentiment...

The Paper Shelter Challenge #328 - Use Metal


This week I used The Glamorous Girls pre-coloured digital stamp. The image is cut out and placed onto a Nestabilities die which I've distressed with Stormy Sky distress ink.  I used a variety of distress inks on the die cut doily and sentiment tag.  For my metal pieces I used a bronze decorative corner and sprayed it with silver glitter spray paint and some black eyelets.  My paper is from the stunning Ultimate Crafts Rambling Rose paper pack. I added a variety of flowers and a crochet doily with a sticky gem centrepiece.  The top of my card is punched using a Fiskars border punch. A few sticky pearls and swirl and voila!

The Paper Shelter #326 - Decorate It!



I used the adorable 99 Messages 3 Chats pre-coloured digital stamp on my card this week. I love the bright colours and her hair is stunning. My papers are from the American Crafts Plus One Amy Tangerine paper pack.  She is sitting on a Magnolia wall stamp which I coloured with copics.

My sentiment is punched out with a Martha Stewart alphabet punch and I stuck the letters onto the leftovers of a window die cut (I never throw anything away). I used Tea Dye distress ink on the edges. They remind me of Scrabble letters which I love to play.

  

To decorate my card, I added some beautiful ribbon from The Ribbon Girl 
and a variety of flowers and lace.

The Paper Shelter #324 - Birthday Card


I thought of my niece while I made this card.  She loves tea and coffee and recently had the most stunning ombre highlights in her hair.  She needs a good break and a cuppa every now and then from teaching little ones.

I used the Pastel Goth digital stamp and coloured her with Copics. My papers are from the Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour paper stack.  I tore the edges of the paper and distressed them with Stormy Sky distress ink. 


The "Best Wishes"sentiment is from the Marianne Design 
Sending Birthday Wishes stamp set. 


The cut out border was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
The flowers and butterfly are by Prima.
