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.

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 #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.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #322 - Shape It Up


This card brings back good memories of the ice cream truck driving around our neighborhood in the summer playing music. I used the pre-coloured Cool Lolly digital stamp. My papers are from the Authentique Sweetness paper pack. For the wheels I punched out different size circles and added a sticky bead to the centre. The window is cut out and a window die placed behind it with parts of a doily as lace curtains.  The rest of the doily is used as a border above my striped paper. 


   
I just added a few embellishments on this card

Boys' Toys

Firstly I'd hope you all had a wonderful festive season
and best wishes for 2018!

May this year be filled with  love, passion, creativity and crafting!



For this card I decided to use a Cricut image and paper pieced the car. I added some Glossy Accents to the lights. My stamp is Casual Boy by the Paper Shelter, I cut the image in a tag shape. I love this stamp. It reminds me of two little treasures in our family. I coloured him with Copics and added some metal screws brads to the tags.  The sentiment is from the Forever Friends Birthday Wishes sticker pack.

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

I used the Christmas Candy Fairy stamp and coloured her with Copics and Stickles and glitter gel pens. I cut her out on a Spellbinders die and inked the edged with distress ink then sewed it onto fabric. I painted a brown wreath white and framed my image with the wreath.  My papers from from the Dovecraft "Tis the Season" paper pack.

Good Morning fellow crafters, and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop! Our blog hop is in celebration of The Paper Shelter reaching their 7th birthday on the 8th of December! This will be a two week challenge, and both Design Teams will be taking part.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to share in the celebrations with us, so our theme for this one is BIRTHDAY/CELEBRATIONS.

If you have hopped here from Bettina's blog, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, so that you don't miss anyone out.  Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky visitor, from those who leave a comment, a digi of their choice, as well as the main prize, details of which are on the main Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.


I used a pre-printed digi stamp on my card called Fun and Sun. My papers are from the Prima Annalee paper stack. I used some white and gold lace and ribbon and a Martha Stewart border punch which I distressed using Tea Dye ink. The sentiment is from LOTV.
 I added a variety of flowers, some lovely shells and gem hearts.

From here you'll need to hop on over to Vannessa's blog.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance to win your choice from all the fab digis available in the store! Hope you're having fun!
