THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #601: SUMMER ACTIVITIES

 

Our theme at The Paper Shelter this week is
SUMMER ACTIVITIES

One of my favourite activities at any time of year is walking, and in Summer, it's so beautiful to take beach walks.

I've chosen Stylish at the Beach for my card.  I've coloured the image with Copics and then used a Spellbinders die to frame her.

My papers are from the Ciao Bella Delta paper pack.  I've ton the edges, rather than cutting them, and between two of the papers, I've added a strip of Ultimate Crafts lace.

My laser cuts are all 49 and Market, and because the colour suited so well, I've left them raw and uncoloured.  My flowers are also 49 and Market.  

I've finished off with a few Carta Bella enamel dots.







Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter this week we have 6 products of your choice, if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 products of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Thanks for popping in!

PASSION FOR MARKERS CHALLENGE #743: ANIMALS

 

Good Morning friends!


Our theme at Passion for Markers this week is:
ANIMALS

Up for grabs we have 3 digi images to give away, from our generous sponsor

The adorable image I've chosen to use this week is called Party Animal.


I've coloured the image with Copics and used a Studio Light stencil and Distress Inks for the background. I've then used a Creative Dies die to cut it out.

My papers are from the Echo Park Play All Day Boy paper pack.  I've used a suede ribbon to criss-cross the card, and a Spellbinders die for the sentiment.



We're hoping you'll join in with our fun challenge this week, and grab your chance to win this super prize!

Thanks for popping in today!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #599: CHOCOLATE


Good Morning lovely crafters!


Our theme at The Paper Shelter this week is:
CHOCOLATE
That's either SHADES OF BROWN, or chocolate somewhere on your project.

I have both!


I've chosen Architectural Cuteness for my card, because I've had her printed for ages, and haven't had a chance to colour her up.

I've coloured the image with Copics, and used a My Favorite Things stencil and Distress Inks for the brick background.  I use this particular stencil a lot!

I chose papers from the Stamperia Coffee and Chocolate collection, and if you look on the right hand side, you'll spot a slab of chocolate.  I love browns, and this paper pack was perfect for our theme.

My flowers are Blossoms by Vivaldi, and Green Tara.  I've added in a few swirls of fuzzy wire.  The bow is Little Birdie and the pearls are Tim Holtz.








Our winner will win a 6 products of your choice if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 products of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE: 597: SING A NEW SONG


Good Morning lovely crafters!


Our theme at The Paper Shelter this week is:
SING A NEW SONG

We're working on projects that are inspired by a song, or have something to do with music.


I've used one of my favourite older images, called Hippie Chic.  I've coloured the image with Copics.

My papers are from the Hot Off The Press Picket Fence paper pack.  I've used a Tim Holtz die to cut the big tag and tied it off with an Offray ribbon.  I've used three laser cuts: Little Birdie and Scrapaholics, and coloured them with a Copic marker, to get just the right colour.

Behind the image I've used a piece of dyed cheesecloth (bought that colour).  My flowers are I Am Roses, 49 and Market, and Prima.

            



Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter this week is our usual fantastic prize!  Our winner will win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 digis of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.
