A shaped card - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all,

It's new challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week's theme is perfect for helping you get out of your go-to card shapes (providing said shapes are rectangles or squares, lol), as we're looking for your shaped cards!

I decided it had been a while since I'd done a stepped card, so I coloured in the gorgeous Hindu Princess and made just that.



I die-cut some flowers from papers from the same pad as the background papers (I love these colours with that digi! Vibrant colours are definitely a real winner paired with her, I think), and added a little bling to them too. A sentiment to finish it off, et voila! 

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!

Book print, sheet music and maps - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all!

Sometimes it's fun to use something besides a flowery designer paper for a card, no? At Sweet Stampin' we think so, so this week we're looking for your creations that feature book print, sheet music or maps!

(and yes of course you can use designer paper or stamps featuring those too!)

As using any of the above three is something I love to do, I have a stock of old sheet music, book paper and even an old atlas to use in my creations (an upside of volunteering for a charity is rescuing things like these from ending up in a landfill somewhere when they prove unloved in the shop!). Of course, because I love all three, I also had some difficulty choosing which to use, so in the end I went with all three!


So I used a page from an old book as the background, and had some fun with inks and texture paste. I then made a butterfly out of a layer of sheet music, book paper and finally old map paper to give it some dimension. (It was hard to get all the layers in one picture, but they're there!) A matching glass button, some twine and a sentiment, and my card was done.

And now it's your turn! Come share your bookish/musical/mappy creations with us. we'd love to see them!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

A Birthday Card - The Paper Shelter

Morning all!

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week is probably one of the easiest themes of all, so you've no excuse not to join in! We're looking for Birthday Cards!

I decided to make a card with the gorgeous Coffee break digi, which I'd been looking for an excuse to use for a while...


I teamed her with some pretty papers, funky sentiments and I made a take-away coffee cup with snippets of the paper and card and a star gem to finish it off.

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!).

Spring/Easter with moodboard - Sweet Stampin'

 Good afternoon bloggers!

Sorry I'm late with this. I wasn't paying attention when I filled challenge dates in my diary, and put it on the wrong week. Oops! 

The current challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is an Easter/spring challenge, and comes with a gorgeous mood board made by our lovely Wends:


Between the colours and the flowers, I immediately thought of the French Country collection by Graphic 45, so I dug out the paper pad and made this for my mum for this mother's day just gone.


I do so adore sunflowers, and luckily my mum loved it too :)

So now it's over to you guys. Is there anything in that mood board that has your creative cogs whirring? If so, don't forget to come and share the results with us over at Sweet Stampin'.

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Love, love, love - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It's new challenge time over at Sweet Stampin'! A quick glance at the calendar should leave you unsurprised that this week's theme is love, love, love.

And what could be more romantic than a trip gondola with your beloved? Ok, probably a lot of things if said beloved flails around, making the boat go in circles and capsizing the gondola despositing you both in the water, but let's just assume for argument's sake that they are a dab hand with an oar ;)

With that in mind, here's my card with a fab image from The Paper Shelter.


Rather looks like fun, no?

Now it's over to you guys! Come play with us over at Sweet Stampin'!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

 Morning all!


It's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter, and we're looking for New Beginnings this week.

This was an easy one to decide what to do for, for me anyway, as my daughter is currently looking for her first proper place with her fiance (because student dorms definitely don't count!). I figured it would be a good thing to have a card ready for when they find somewhere.

I used the fab Moving in together to make their 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!).
