Make your own background - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all!

The theme for this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is make your own background, which of course is perfect for those of us who love our Distress inks! I happened to need a new bookmark, and had just received the most perfect stamp for my birthday, so my DT inspiration pretty much made itself this week.


As it was going to be for me to use myself, I opted for a vintage, grungy colour scheme. I also stamped the image in Ground Espresso archival ink, rather than black, for a warmer, more vintage feel, and used a strip of dark brown card as a mat. A Kaiserkraft script stamp provided the perfect little background detail.

Now it's over to you guys! Please do come and play with us this week!

Have a fantabulous day!

Morning all!

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter, and this week our theme is Girl Power!

I used the gorgeous Autumn Enchantment for my card.


Isn't she lovely? And she was so much fun to colour!

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).



Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Take a leap - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

Time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' today, and we took inspiration from the date, so the theme is take a leap.

So you could use people/creatures that jump, or marriage proposals, or even things that happen every 4 years (I didn't think of the world Cup/ Euro footie until after I'd made mine already, lol.)

I used the fabulous The Time of my Life digi from The Paper Shelter for my card, and there's definitely a leap involved in "the lift"! (and yes, I do have the urge to go dig out my Dirty Dancing DVD now, lol)


Over to you guys! Should you need a little more inspiration, my fellow Sweeties have a whole range of interpretations on the theme ready and waiting for you, so why not go check them out?

Have a fantabulous weekend!

One for the boys - The Paper shelter

Morning all,

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and it's time to break out your masculine goodies, as the theme this week is for the boys.

I decided to use the fab Casual Boy digi for my card, and instead of my usual vintage masculine look, I decided to do something with a bit more colour this time!


He's a pretty cool dude, no?

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

Birthday boys - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It's time to think masculine at Sweet Stampin' this week, as our theme is birthday boys! And you know I do love to make cards for menfolk!

So for this week's card, I went for a Kenny K digi, just for a change, and had some fun with it.


Such a dapper fella, no?

Over to you. Don't forget to go see what my fellow Sweeties have prepared for your inspiration, and we'd love it if you come to play with us!

Have an awesomesauce weekend!

For the one you love - The Paper Shelter

Morning all!

It's new challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week's theme is For the one you love, which is pretty apt with valentine's day coming up, of course!

For my card, I used the adorable Sweetheart digi, and coloured her to match some pretty love-themed papers (First Edition, I believe), and of course an appropriate sentiment!


I figured the die-cut heart shape was appropriate for this one! :)


So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

Shades of blue - the Paper Shelter

Morning all!

It's new challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week's theme is Shades of Blue.
Now blue isn't a colour I work with often, but I have so many gorgeous blue papers I really should make more of an effort to do so!

So for my card I used the fabulous Rosie, and matched her with some super pretty papers. I really love the shade of blue of the card I used too.


I was originally going to have a different border along the sides, but half-way through punching it, my border punch pretty much exploded in my hands! One second it was a punch, the next it was a useless pile of plastic, metal and springs! Eek! But I had a pretty border die which came to the rescue, thankfully.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

Journals/keepsakes - Sweet Stampin'

Good morning all,

New challenge time, and this week we're looking to see some keepsakes. this can be a journal, or maybe a frame, or some other kind of special keepsake.

I went for the journal option of course, and used some stunning Stamperia papers to make a gardening journal. (not for myself though, as my thumbs are every colour but green, lol)





I also made a card to match, so it'll be a perfect little something to give for someone's birthday, or some other occasion.


I absolutely adore the Stamperia range, but you've got to be careful not to get ripped off buying them, I find! The first place I ordered a pad from it was £16 (I was expecting a much bigger pad for that money than the 10 sheets I got!). luckily there are several other websites based in the UK that sell them for less than £10 a pad, or I wouldn't have ever bought any more!

Anyway, it's over to you guys! I hope you'll come and share your lovely makes with us. we look forward to seeing them!

Have an awesomesauce weekend!

New beginnings - The Paper Shelter

Morning all!

Time for our first challenge of the year over at The Paper Shelter today, and we're - rather aptly - looking for new beginning themed cards.
It could be a New year's card of course, or you could opt for a different new beginning, like I've done here with my card:



I used the fabulous Cravings digi (and boy can I remember those! My son made me eat cheese with every meal. I didn't even like cheese! lol.) to make a pregnancy card.


So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).



Hope you have a fantabulous day!

New Stash - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this week we're all curious to see if Santa left you anything crafty in your stocking this Christmas. If so, you have the perfect excuse to come play along with our new stash theme!
Unfortunately for me, Santa always seems to forget the craft supplies, so I've had to make do with using what I believe was the last TPS digi I bought before joining the team. I absolutely had to have this one!


I had so much fun playing with her hair and going for a multi-coloured look.

Your turn! Come show us your new stash over at Sweet Stampin', and don't forget to check out what my fellow Sweeties have got to show you!

Have a fantabulous weekend!
