Hugs & Squishes at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

This week at The Paper Shelter we are taking a little trip Under The Sea, so we'd love to see your water-themed makes. 

 I have used 'The Most Adorable Jellyfishes' to make an easel shaker card.


I outlined the image in white to make the jellyfish seem more transparent.

I finished off the frame with some 'bubbles' and Wink of Stella to give some sparkle.

I couldn't resist the sentiment!

Please come and join in our challenge this week and remember, you can use any image but if you use a Paper Shelter image you are eligible for a higher value prize!

Sweet Little Mermaid

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

I'm back again with another mermaid scene using some more clear stamps that I won from Sweet November Stamps. I have used 'Dock On The Bay' scene builder set with the other mermaid from 'Mermees #3'

I've taken inspiration from The Little Mermaid for this scene and the colours I used.  As her hair is floating, I have made the dock sunken and imagine her daydreaming about being on a dock above the water. I added the sentiment last and heat embossed to make it stand out.


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you come again soon,

Green Cupcake Dream at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

We are starting another fun week's challenge at The Paper Shelter and this time we are asking you to use your Favourite Colours.

Usually I would be all over using my favourite colour, purple, but since my daughter's birthday is coming up soon, I thought I would use her favourite colour. I'm sure you will guess what it is as I made my card monochrome!

I have used 'You're My Cuppy Cake' as she wants to be a baker when she grows up, and she just loves cupcakes {who doesn't!?)

 
I'm feeling a mint and chocolate kinda vibe with these colours.


I feel like I've been hoarding these chipboard words since Make It Crafty closed, so figured it was time to get them out again!

Be A Mermaid And Make Waves

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

MerMay might be over, but mermaids are for life! I won a couple of clear sets from Sweet November during their new release and I've only just had a chance to create something with them.

For this card I have used several stamps from the 'Mermees #3' set.  I am more used to creating scenes using digital stamps, but I did some masking anyway. I don't have any Post-It Notes but I do have some removable double-sided tape, so I used that with paper,

I always love to add some sparkle.


Thanks for stopping by today

Mother's Day Bouquet

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

I printed this image some weeks ago with nothing in mind, but Mother's Day came around and it was perfect for that.  I didn't recall what it was called when I coloured it, but I made it into pretty pink spring blossoms.

The image is 'Christmas Bouquet' from Power Poppy.  I can't see it on the site now, so I'm thinking it may have been a freebie at some point.


Thank you for stopping by today,

Guest Designer at Mirtillamente

 Hello Crafty Peeps.

I was honoured to be chosen as Guest Designer for Mirtillamente this month. Their challenge has already gone live, so you can head over there and join in, This is a brand new company to me so it was fun being able to choose something from the store.

I love Steampunk, so had to use 'So'Getta Steampunk Gears' for a canvas.


I only had glossy texture paste, so decided to make my own, It's actually really easy and turned out well for my first try. I first pasted through a stencil.


Then I used the paste to attach die cut gears.



Once that was dry, I added Distress Inks

I coloured the image in sepia tones


And finished off with metal embellishments and a sentiment.

It's not so easy to see on here, but the different fonts of the sentiment are printed in different colours.


Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you will be back soon.

Inspired By A Movie at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

I'm back again with another inspiration post for The Paper Shelter. This week we are asking you to create a project Inspired By A Movie.

I rarely do boys' cards so decided I need to for this challenge. My movie inspiration is The Karate Kid, motivated by the recent series Cobra Kai. I have used 'Physical and Spiritual Strength', plus a quote from the late great Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi, and the iconic bonsai tree symbol.

Of course I had to make him a black belt!
