PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #413: ANYTHING GOES



This week at Penny's we have two fantastic prizes up for grabs!




and

$10 store voucher

I have used one of the images from the Cat's Meow Set from Sparkle n Sprinkle.  This fantastic set comes with 4 adorable kitties and several sentiments, one of which I also used on my card!  If I were a little more creative, I'd have found a way to use more than one on my card, but I knew exactly who I wanted to make a card for, and the image that suited him!  

I have coloured the image with markers and drawn in a background for him.  My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Coffee Talk pack.  The two little kitties are Dress It Up buttons.  The little heart is also a button.  I've added some corner pearls.

You can use our sponsors' logos to visit their stores, or ours to head back to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team are showcasing this week.




Thanks so much for popping in for a visit!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #366: DIGITAL IMAGE


Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!

We have a new challenge starting today, and the theme is:
Use a DIGITAL IMAGE


I've given in to beauty this week... In my role as designer, I tend to pick older images from our sponsors to work with, for 2 reasons: 1) The newer images get quite a lot of attention, and I don't want to bore you with yet another card using one of them, and 2) The older images are so lovely, I don't want them overlooked.  But then this image popped up, and all my self-imposed rules went out the window!  How stunning is this image!!!

She's called Glittery And Sparkling, and I have coloured her with markers.  I've then cut her out using a Spellbinders die, and used a different Spellbinders die to cut some of the papers.  

My papers and sentiment are from the Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac pack.  It's one of my favourites. If you visit my blog much, you'll know that I lean toward purples, so I really love this paper pack!  Enough to have bought a 2nd one, just in case I run out.  

The starry corner was cut using a Poppy Crafts die.  In case you can't quite tell from the photograph, it's cut from silver mirrored card.  I've added two doilies hand crocheted by my mum.  My flowers are 49 and Market, Little Birdie, Petaloo and KaiserCraft.


Up for grabs this week as always, is a $30 gift voucher if our winning entry has used a Paper Shelter product - it could be a pre-coloured image, black and white digi, or paper, 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.

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY CHALLENGE #156: ANYTHING GOES + FOUR SEASONS


Hello Crafters!

Here's some mid-month inspiration for you using one of the fabulously fun images from Digistamps 4 Joy!  

This will be our last challenge, as the Digistamps 4 Joy store will be closing at the end of January.  The entire store is discounted for the month of January, so grab your favourites at half price WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!!


We're celebrating the seasons this month, and I've chosen Summer.  My image is called Ready To Swim and I have coloured it with markers.  I also added a few marker dots to the butterfly.

My papers and tags are from the Bo Bunny Make A Splash pack.  I've used a Spellbinders border die, because the shape reminded me of waves.

My flowers are a mix of 49 and Market and Green Tara.

You don't have to follow the theme to enter the challenge on our blog.  In fact, you can enter using any image and any theme!

This gorgeous image is from Cute As A Button.  It's called Morning Devotion.  I have coloured the image with markers, and cut it out using a Poppy Crafts die.

My paper is from the Stamperia Lilac Flowers pack.  It's so beautiful that I didn't want to cover it up too much.  I've cut 2 little doilies using a magazine freebie die, 2 Prima corner hearts and Prima flowers, plus a few random pearls.

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #412: ANYTHING GOES


Welcome back everyone!  


We have a new challenge starting at Penny's today, with two fantastic prizes up for grabs:

will be giving our 1st winner 3 digi images

and

will be giving our 2nd winner a $6 store voucher
I have used an adorable Maria Medel image on my card.  It's called I Love You This Much, and it comes with the sentiment.  I have coloured my image with markers and then cut it out and placed the little monkey onto a banana, which I cut on my Cricut - from the Preserves cartridge.  To add a bit of life to my banana, I used markers to colour the tips and I added some shading around the edge and a few 'ripening' dots.  

I cut the sentiment to look like a flag/banner.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Monkeying Around pack, and my flowers are 49 and Market.

To see more from Maria Medel images on display, be sure to pop back to our challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created to inspire you this week, or head straight to our sponsors to have a look around.

DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS GEMMA


My daughter-in-law is a very talented artist, so I was thrilled to get my hands on this adorable image from Digi Doodle Studios, called Gemma.

I have coloured the image with markers.  

My papers are from the Craft & You Design I Love Vintage pack.  I hate working with 6 x 6 paper, because my cards are always bigger than that, that the paper is just so beautiful, I had to have it!  At least it's quite busy, so the joins aren't immediately obvious.

All the other arty goodies are Jolee's.

Our current challenge on the blog is: 
HAPPY ANYTHING!


We also have our regular FaceBook challenge running, and loads of inspiration for you to see there too, so do pop in for a visit!
