The Paper Shelter Challenge #584 - Your Favourites

 


Welcome to my blog!

Our challenge this week at The Paper Shelter is YOUR FAVOURITES.  

My favourite season of the year is autumn. I love the colours of the changing leaves, the cooler days and crisp mornings.  For my card, I used an image called Autumn Attitude.  She is coloured with Copics.  The papers are from The Paper Boutique called Kraft. The flowers are called Luna by Prima.  I tied a piece of hessian around the card ending in a bow.

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 #580 - Anything but a square

 


Welcome to my blog and hope we are going to have some crafting fun in 2024!

Our first challenge this year is ANYTHING BUT A SQUARE.  

I used a pre-coloured image on my card called My Dad, My Hero.
I made an easel card.  I traced and had cut big clouds and used a small die cut cloud for the background to my Cricut cut and paper pieced aeroplane.  
For the airport tarmac paper I used a sheet from the DCWV Grade School paper pack and for the grassy base on the case I used a sheet from the Marianne Designs Sintage Men paper pack.  To hold the easel up I added a plane brad.  
The sentiment is part of a Marianne Designs stamp set called "Sending Birthday Wishes.

The Paper Shelter Christmas Break Challenge - Anything Goes

 

Welcome to my blog!

Our last challenge for the year has gone live at The Paper Shelter.  
This week our challenge is ANYTHING GOES

I used Christmas baubles from one of the new Paper Shelter digital coloring books called Christmas Ornaments.  I used 3 different baubles, colored them with Copics and added gold adhesive pearls to "hang" them from the Christmas garland.  I wrapped some Jolees Holiday lights arounds the garlands and added some Prima Candy Cane Lane leaves and berries. The sentiment is from a sticker pack by Upikit.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #578 - Colours of Winter

 


Welcome to my blog!

Our new challenge has gone live at The Paper Shelter.  This week our challenge is to use winter colours. I have gone for blues, pinks and purples as I love to use non-traditional Christmas decorations.

Have you seen our new colouring books.  Have a look at the awesome selection on The Paper Shelter website.  I used one of the background image and Christmas digital image called Here is Santa.  I coloured the images with Copics and fussy cut Santa.  I added some sparkly trim and a festive sentiment by Upikit Glittering Stickers.

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!
