BOOK STACK


I recently signed up on Patreon, and became a patron of Krista Smith.  Finding her art available on Etsy a while ago, made me VERY happy!  This is one of the images sent out to Krista's patrons in March.  It's called Book Stack.  We have several teachers in our family, so I was instantly drawn to this image.

I have coloured the image with markers, and created the background with a Tim Holtz stencil and Distress Inks.  My papers are from the Craft & You Design I Love Vintage pack.  The school goodies are Jolee's.  I have also added a few enamel dots.

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #422


Good Morning Crafters!


This week at Penny's we have 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs!  We are being sponsored by 

Prize TBA

and 


giving a $10 store voucher

I had the privilege of working with a Time For Tea Designs image, called Phoebe And The Flutterby.

I have coloured the image with markers, and decided to use it as my focus of this month's Kit & Clowder markers class.  With so much going on in my image, I decided to keep my card design as simple as possible, so all I've done is layer it onto different coloured frames and add 2 sentiments.  Blessings is a Poppy Crafts die cut, and the beauty sentiment is a KaiserCraft stamp, on a Poppy Crafts die cut tag.


The girls at Penny's have created some beautiful cards, showcasing our sponsor images this week, so pop back to the challenge to see!

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS LEILANI


Are you feeling Spring in the air yet??  Where I live, we're just beginning to feel the temperature drop a little, and Autumn is on it's way!  

This sweet image from Digi Doodle Studios is called Leilani.  I have coloured the image with markers and used a Spellbinders die to cut her out.  

My paper is from a freebie pack that came with a craft magazine.  I've added a strip of lace and a soft pink ribbon and pre-made bow.  The doily was created by my mum.

The letters 'joy' are foam stickers by American Crafts, and the flowers are all Jenni B stickers




Don't forget we have our monthly challenge on the blog, where the theme for the month is to use a Spring colour palette.  Click below to see what we've created to inspire you this month.


We also have a monthly Anything Goes with a Digi Doodle challenge in our FaceBook group, so be sure to share all your Digi Doodle Studios creations with us there.  You'll get to see loads of inspiration in the group too!

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #421


Good Morning Everybody!


This week at Penny's, we have a fabulous prize up for grabs, from:



I have used elements from both the pre-coloured and uncoloured versions of Emma The Mermaid on my card.  I have coloured Emma herself and the two seahorses with markers.  The rest of the image is from the pre-coloured set.  I typed up the sentiment myself though.

My papers are from the Bo Bunny Down By The Sea pack.  I've used a Creative Dies die for the tag and added a dolphin charm and a strip of cheesecloth.  I've used a Magnolia die for the bubbles and a Find IT Trading frame die for the bottom corner.  

My flowers are 49 and Market, and there's another piece of cheesecloth beneath the image.  

As usual, the rest of the team have created stunning cards with more images from our fantastic sponsor this week, so use our banner at the top of the page to head back to the blog to check them out.  

Here are a few close-ups of mine:

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #374: DIGITAL IMAGE


Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!


This week at The Paper Shelter, we'd like you to use a DIGITAL IMAGE.  

I have used this super fun image called Venus Flytrap.  I have coloured the image with markers and cut it out using a Poppy Crafts stitched edge die.

My papers are from the DCWV The Guy Stack.  I typed up the sentiment and cut it out with another Poppy Crafts die.

The gardening goodies are all Jolee's.  I've also added a few pearls.


As usual our winner this week can win a $30 gift voucher, if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry - it could be the black and white digi, the pre-coloured image or the paper, or 3 digi images 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.





Have fun crafting this week!  Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

PATTY


This sweet image is from Cute As A Button.  It's called St. Patty's Day Parade.  She is this month's FaceBook Progressive Challenge image in the Cute As A Button FaceBook Group.  I originally coloured the image with a St. Patrick's Day theme, as you can see below, but I wasn't happy.  I had coloured the flag with the colours reversed, so that they were in the right order as you look at the image, but it made me uncomfortable that it meant the colours were actually in the wrong order for an Irish flag, were the flag real and blowing in the wind.  I decided to reprint my image and colour up the flag and balloon without the St. Patrick's Day theme, and turn it into a birthday card instead.  I then stuck the new flag and balloon onto the previous versions.

I have coloured the image with markers and added pearls to her headband and shoes.  My papers are from the Pink & Main My Heart pack.  I've added a broad ribbon and bow, and embellishments from Making Memories.
