Something beginning with B - Sweet Stampin'

 Good morning folks!

New challenge time over at Sweet Stampin', and this challenge we'd like to see your creations that feature something beginning with B...


I dug out an adorable LotV stamp and made a card that actually features lots of Bs!


I make it at least 6 Bs...

Baby

Bear

Blanket

Butterflies

Brown

Blue


Your turn! Come share your B creations with us (you only need one, not 6 like some of us overachievers, lol). If you need some more inspiration,  don't forget to take a peek at what my fellow Sweeties have been up to.

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Flower Power - The Paper shelter

Good morning all,

There's a new challenge just starting over at The Paper Shelter, and the theme this week is Flower Power.

What a fab theme! I'm sure most of us have no trouble with this one! I chose the gorgeous Little Butterfly to play with, and decided to go for something light and pretty.


Isn't she sweet?

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!

Embellishments - The Paper Shelter

 Good morning all,

There's a new challenge just starting over at The Paper Shelter, and this week we're looking for you to use embellishments!

Ohhhhh, you know what that means... Of course I dove head-first into my flower box to make something shabby chic for this week!


This digi is called A Classy Stroll, and I'm not sure who's classier, the lady or the dog! As you can see, my new dark brown Copics are getting quite the work-out right now! I figure if I do dark-brown hair for the majority of my cards for a year or so, my stock of cards will hopefully have an even distribution of hair colour by the end of it, lol! (another by-product of Covid: lots of extra time to craft, and no craft fairs to sell any of the cards on!)


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!

Tags - Sweet Stampin'

 Good morning folks!

Our theme over at Sweet Stampin' this challenge is tags! So, you can make a tag, or add a tag to your card, or find some other creative way to incorporate them.

For me it was a great excuse to break out the Tim Holtz supplies and have some fun. So much fun in fact, that I ended up with two!



Both tags started with a base made with distress sprays (which were the birthday present I had informed hubby he was getting me, lol), then I decorated one with some paper dolls (tinted with Distress markers) and a fab snarky sentiment, and the second with a large sentiment (from Inkylicious) and one of my much hoarded rusty stars.

Now it's over to you guys. we look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

A Shaped card - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all,

If you're anything like me, you may find yourself getting a little lazy from time-to-time, and find most of your cards turn into simple squares or rectangles. If so, hopefully this week's challenge over at The Paper Shelter will help you shake things up a bit, as the theme this week is A Shaped Card.

So out came my dies and the awesome Rowena, and I had some fun making something a little different!


This was also a good excuse to break out some of the pretty vintage papers I'd been hoarding... 

I'd also finally gotten my hands on a few nice dark brown Copics to supplement my (now complete!) Promarker collection. As much as I love my Promarkers, it's nice to be able to do something in dark brown for once, lol. I love how it all turned out in the end.


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!

A birthday card - The Paper shelter

 Morning all!

The theme over at The Paper Shelter this week is as easy as easy can be, as we'd like to see your birthday cards! So you have no excuse for not joining in! ;)

I chose the fab Retro Space Girl for a crafty friend (who is as much into sci-fi as I am!), and paired her with some delicious Maja Design papers.


Isn't she fab?


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.

No squares - Sweet Stampin'

 Morning all,

Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this time we're asking you to step away from your go-to squares and rectangles, and make something in a different shape.

I decided that my birthday calendar - which I'd made when I first started crafting back in 2012! - really needed updating, making a little bigger, and decorating in something that's a little more my style, so I grabbed some dies and my favourite Tim Holtz papers I'd been hoarding for just such an occasion and set to...


And of course I had to include a few pictures of some individual pages...








This now has pride of place on my desk, and with luck I'll now never forget another birthday again! (wish me luck with that, lol)

Time for you guys to come wow us with your makes over at Sweet Stampin'!

Have a fantabulous weekend!
