The Paper Shelter Challenge #538 - Something Cold

 


 Welcome to my blog!

Our challenge this week at The Paper Shelter challenge is Something Cold. I love cold weather and just got to spend a few weeks over Christmas and New Year in the UK.  It was heavenly being in COLD weather compared to sunny South Africa.

The image I used for my card is The Snowflake Fairy.  She is pre-coloured.  I love non-traditional coloured Christmas cards so I went with pinks and blues using a textured embossed background paper.  The sentiment is part of a stamp set by Crafter's Companion called Christmas Tree in the Flower Fairies Friends range.  I added a few Say it in Crystals.

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!

Thanks for popping by to my blog, and hope to see you again!

The Paper Shelter Christmas Break challenge - Anything Goes

 


Welcome to my blog!

Can you believe it's Christmas time?  Just one for Paper Shelter challenge for 2022. 

 I coloured Are you ready my friend?  and fussy cut it.  I wanted to use soft non-traditional colours so found this lovely pink paper  with snowflakes.  You can never have enough snowflakes so I punched some more and added Stickles.  The tree is a die cut. 

I added some lovely bauble trim and lace.  
The sentiment is part of the KaiserCraft St Nicholas stamp set.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #532 - Something Yummy (Food and/or drink)

 


Welcome crafters!

The image I chose for this challenge was just perfect.  Nothing more yummy than a cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer's day.  The image is called The Sweetest Watermelon.  I used Copics to colour the image and distress inks for the soft blue sky.  The papers are from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine paper pack.  I used a tag die by Spellbinders Shapeabilities and added an eyelet and polka dot ribbon.  

I added some wooden watermelon slice embellishments.


The sentiment is partly die cut alphabets and a stamp combination.
