THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #517: THINGS WITH WINGS


Good Morning lovely crafters!


This week at The Paper Shelter, we're showcasing THINGS WITH WINGS


I've chosen adorable little Pixie for my card.

I have coloured the image with Copics and drawn in a flower for her to stand on.  I've added Stickles to her wings.  I've used a set of KaiserCraft dies to cut out and frame the image.

My papers are from the Lili of the Valley Bonnets & Bowties paper pack.  I cut two shapes on my Cameo for the background paper.

My flowers are I Am Roses, and I've added cute little Ribtex mushrooms.  I was so pleased that these came in pink!  I've also added a strip of Simplicity feather ribbon and lots of Spellbinders gems.  The sparkly banner is an Asuka Studio laser cut, and the leafy swirl is a Stamperia laser cut.  Both have been sprayed with white Gesso.








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!

Dr. Digi images are always fantastic, and I particularly love the male images.  They're perfect for fun male cards.  This one is called Derek Clapton.


I have coloured the image with Copics, and used papers from the Memory Box Woodsy Plaid paper pack. I've added an Offray ribbon and a few Echo Park enamel dots.

My sentiment is a Colorado Craft Company stamp.



That's it!  A quick, simple one for me today.  Thanks for popping over for a look!

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #515: FLOWER POWER


Good Morning lovely crafters!


We have a super fun theme at The Paper Shelter this week!

FLOWER POWER

I couldn't decide if I wanted the hippie aspect of that, or the actual flower interpretation of the theme, so I went with both.


I've used Psychedicate on my card.

I decided to make an easel card this week.  I coloured the image with Copics and used papers from the Asuka Enjoy The Ride paper pack.  Thankfully there are two of each paper design, so I could use the same piece for the outside and inside of the card.  The heart strip os also from the paper pack.




My flowers and butterfly are Prima and I've used a Spellbinders die for the sentiment panel.  There are 3 dies in this particular Spellbinders set, and I used the smallest of the three to cut the little corner embellishment.  I've taken a pic of it, so you can see where the section came from.











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.

PASSION FOR MARKERS CHALLENGE #643: 3 OR MORE LAYERS


Good Morning fellow crafters!


Our lovely Kitty has chosen our theme this week.  She'd like you to use 
3 OR MORE LAYERS

Up for grabs this week:  2 digi images from


I have used sweet Little Elephant on my card.

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

Ellie's Grey: N5; N4; N3; N2; N1; N0
Eyebrows: N2; N1; N0
Ellie's Pink: R85; R83; R81; RV000; RV0000
Ellie's Nails: N10; N8; N6
Yellow: E15; Y17; Y13; Y11
Purple: V09; V04; V01; V000
Green: YG67; YG63; YG61
Water: BG07; BG05; BG02; BG01; BG000
Sky: BG000

I found that my colours bled a little - particularly the grey into the pink areas, so I've gone over the offending sections with a white pencil, and also used it to highlight edges.

I've used a Creative Dies wonky stitches circle die to cut out the image, a Creative Expressions die for the shaped panel, and a Joy! Crafts die for the heart banner.

My papers are from the Paper Boutique Beverley Eden paper pack, and the sentiment is from the Paper Boutique Springtime Meadows collection.

I've added a strip of cheesecloth behind the shaped panel, and a strip of lace behind the image panel.  My flowers are I Am Roses, and I've also added a few Simple Stories enamel dots.

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #513: EMBELLISHMENTS


Good Morning lovely crafters!


We're adding EMBELLISHMENTS to our projects at The Paper Shelter this week, and I thought it was another great opportunity to knock a Christmas card off my list.


I've used Here We Go! on my card.  I've coloured the image with Copics.

My lovely snowflake paper and the Merry Christmas sentiment are from the Dovecraft Christmas Decoupage & Paper Pad.  I've added Offray glitter ribbon across the centre and for a bow.  

My embellishments on this card are Docrafts Papermania glitter dots, and Jolee's snowflakes.  I've also added a PhotoPlay (Ho Ho Ho) puffy sticker.








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.
