The Paper Shelter Challenge #362 - Christmas is Coming


I used The Paper Shelter Any Trick for a Christmas Kiss on my card. I coloured it with Copics. I love the retro feel of this card.  My papers are from the Dovecraft Tis the Season paper pack.  The "Merry Christmas" ribbon is from Dovecraft.


I got a gift from my sister in law who recently visited from the UK so I got a bit creative with the wreath.  The "Make and Create" craft pine branch contains a few strips of pine.  I used half of one and made the circle wreath and wound some berries around it.  



The Christmas tree is a die cut by Couture Creations 
to which I just added a few red sticky pearls.

Our fabulous sponsor, The Paper Shelter, has a $30 gift certificate up for grabs for our lucky winner this week, provided you use a Paper Shelter product.  You could use a digital stamp, paper or printable image.  If you don't use a Paper Shelter product, you could still win 3 digi stamps of your choice!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #360 - Winter Fun


Our challenge this week is “Winter Fun”. 
I LOVE WINTER!  I LOVE SNOW!  I LOVE COOL WEATHER!
And it’s already way too hot in SA. 
So I’m day-dreaming of a snowy winter day as I make this card!

I used the Paper Shelter Lady of Falling Leaves digi stamp. She is coloured with Copics, a touch of Stickles and some pearly white liquid pearls. My paper is from Bo-Bunny’s Gift of Love series.  I tried out a new craft item called “Snow Writer” which works great for snow in small areas. I added a strip of silver trim and some adhesive snowflake gems.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #358 - Digital Image


Hi there, fellow Paper Shelter bloggers...this week our challenge is to use a digital image.

I used the lovely Paper Shelter Purity stamp.  She is coloured with Copics.  I added a lace frame around her.  The paper and sentiment is from the Wild Rose Studio Birds & Berries paper pack.


I tried a different layout and I think it turned out quite nice with the lovely Christmas paper inside.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #356 - Time to Celebrate


It's time to celebrate with a birthday card.  I used the lovely Spring Enchantment digi stamp this week.  She is coloured with Copics and a bit of Stickles.  The paper is from the Wild Rose Studio Winter Bauble paper pack.  Yes, I used winter paper with a spring stamp - call me crazy but these are such beautiful colours and papers, I just couldn't wait till winter.  


The doilies were cut on the Cameo and the blue border is punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. The leaves were cut on my Cuttlebug using the Whimsical Leaves die by Sue Wilson (Creative Expressions).  One of my favourite embellishments is a beaded swirl from The Ribbon Girl.

Our fabulous sponsor, The Paper Shelter, has a $30 gift certificate up for grabs for our lucky winner this week, provided you use a Paper Shelter product.  You could use a digital stamp, paper or printable image.  If you don't use a Paper Shelter product, you could still win 3 digi stamps of your choice!
