THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #511: SHAPED CARD


Good Morning lovely crafters!


This week at The Paper Shelter, we're making 
SHAPED CARDS

I thought it would be a good opportunity to make a Christmas card, and decided to make it in the shape of a Christmas tree.


I've chosen a Christmas tree from the Silhouette range.  I tried sending it to my cutter after it was printed, but the registration marks wouldn't line up properly, so I reprinted and cut the tree out by hand.  I then used the shape of the tree, doubled up and flipped one, then welded them together, to cut my base card shape.

I chose Checking It Twice, and coloured the image with Copics, then cut that out by hand too.  The image is mounted to the tree with puffy pads.

Lastly, I added a puffy sticker sentiment by Echo Park.





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.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #509: BIRTHDAY CARD


Good Morning lovely crafters!


We have a lovely, simple theme at The Paper Shelter this week.  We'd like you to make a 
BIRTHDAY CARD


I've chosen Skate Girl for my card.  I have coloured the image with Copics and used a blade to cut her out.  She's been mounted to the card with puffy pads.

I saw this fun card design on Pinterest, and thought I just had to make one.  There was a template to follow, but I only found it after I'd already started my card, so I decided to just wing it.

My papers are from the Maja Design Denim & Girls paper pack.  I've used two Creative Dies tag dies, and stamped the sentiment with a Craft Emotions stamp.  My flowers are a mix of Prima and I Am Roses.  I've also added a few Carta Bella enamel dots.







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.

Our lovely Elaine has chosen a fun theme for us this week.  She'd like to see your
FAVOURITE COLOURS

Our sponsor this week:  



I have missed my sisters so much over the last few years, so this image, called Missed You - Winnie, immediately made me think of them.

I have coloured the image with Copics, using the following colours:

Skin: E04; E11; E21; E00; E000; R20
Left Girl Hair: E49; E47; E44; E43
Right Girl Hair: E29; E27; E25; E23

Background: E41

I've used a wonky stitches circle die by Creative Dies to cut out the image, and a Spellbinders plain circle die for the offset circle behind the image.

If you haven't figured it out yet, my favourite colours (at the moment) are brown with anything.

My paper is from the Memory Place Hello paper pack.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp and I've used another Creative Dies tag die for the sentiment, with a strip of Offray ribbon.  I've added 49 and Market and I Am Roses flowers, and Picket Fence Studios 'confetti'.

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #507: EASTER TIME


Good Morning lovely crafters!


It's Easter this coming weekend, and so we're making our Easter cards at The Paper Shelter this week.  Our theme for the week is:
EASTER TIME


I've used Candy Bunny on my card.  I have coloured the image with Copics and used a background from Make It Crafty.

My papers are from the First Edition Spring Drop paper pack.  I actually chose the paper pack because it has a few Easter themed papers, but ended up not using any of them.

The beautiful floral circle is a Stamperia laser cut, which I've halved and sprayed with white Gesso.  I've added a sheer ribbon and a strip of lace by Birch Creative, along with flowers from I Am Roses.

I typed up the sentiment on my computer.  







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.

I have used a Marianne Design die to cut out the image.

My papers are from the 49 and Market Sweet Reflections paper pack.  I've used Studio Light dies for the waves, coral and jellyfish.  

There's a thin strip of cheesecloth behind the image and pearl strings around it.  I first used Francheville adhesive pearl strips and then Simplicity pearl string over the top.  I've also added a few Paper Boutique individual pearls.

My flowers are a mix of 49 and Market and I Am Roses.

FOR AN ARTIST

 

When I first saw this image by Elvi's Design Studio, I knew exactly who it needed to be for.  It's just perfect for a digital artist's birthday card, right!


I've added one of her own images to the iPad: Lovey


I have coloured the image with Copics and used papers and stickers from the Carta Bella Gather at Home paper pack, for this card.  I've added a strip of lace and flowers from I Am Roses.




The postal service is so unreliable these days, that I'm not sure when this will reach it's destination, if at all, so I'll be keeping this one secret until it gets there.

Thanks for popping in for a look!
