Challenge #294 - "Lace and Pearls" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, Im writing this post up a few weeks early as Im thinking its possible in the next few weeks Im going to be rather busy with health problems so I do hope you will forgive me.
The Challenge this time is "Lace and Pearls" and Im sure if your anything like me you have hoards of them in your stash, and I had some really pretty lace with pearls sown into it as you will see on my card which I will post in a moment.
As always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website



But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation dont you think.
And now to show you my Card


This beautiful little lady is titled "The Bride" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, after wards I used a oval die to cut her out, and a larger one with a pretty edge to put behind her, then I used a even bigger one and blue card for the mount.
I also used the same set of dies for the sentiment which is from my stash.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card and the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here, I then used the piece of lace down the left hand side and attached it to the back of my first mount. I then placed the mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, to finish of I have used some rose buds and some backing sprays and tied a red ribbon around them and created a bow and placed them in the top right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope that you will want to take part in this "Lace and Pearls" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Challenge #194 - Spring Fever - Pink Gem Challenges

Good Morning Gemsters, well its time for me to host the Challenge this time and for this one I chose the theme "Spring Fever" and Janet has some wonderful Images covering all aspects of the season so do please go and visit the Pink Gem Designs website and see for yourself


For my card I used two of the beautiful images from Pink Gem Designs so here is the Card I created I hope you like it


This Image is called "Bunny with Carrots" and you will find it here, I printed it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I cut it out completely.
The "Green House" is also one of the Pink Gem Designs and you will find it here,  I actually used the coloured image this time and again I cut it out completely.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and for the first mount I used a dark green card, the background paper is also from Pink Gem Designs and you will find it here, I then used a fence die from Sue Wilson to go across the back behind the green house, and cut out some grass from yet another die. As you can see I placed the greenhouse at the back in the center and placed my cut out rabbit in front towards the left. The sentiment was one I found on the internet and printed it and mounted it on yet another piece of green card.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to A Gem of a Challenge and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Spring Fever" Challenge.

Cutie Pie Challenge - "Bunnies and Chicks"

Good Morning Crafters, we were asked by our DT Leader Christine if we would take part in The Cutie Pie Challenge by creating a card "Bunnies and Chicks" as I am on the Pink Gem Designs Design Team and of course this Challenge is being sponsored by Janet and we thought it was a very good idea and was happy to oblige.


And here is the Card I created for the Challenge


 This little lady is titled "Sending Bunny Hugs" and you will find her here. I used a Card design and created this decoupaged image for this Challenge, as you can see by how much it pops away from the card there are several layers to mould to give it depth.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Bunnies and Chicks Challenge".

Challenge #289 - "Girl Power"- The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well I hope you have got all your Easter Eggs by now, I know my two great grandsons will have a Easter Egg hunt in the garden this weekend and I know they will thoroughly enjoy it to.
Well this weeks theme is titled "Girl Power" and I think you will find something in your stash to cover this and I hope you like my choice of image when I add it to this post presently, but first I must let you know that our sponsors are The Paper Shelter


and as always they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website, and if you have used one of their products on your card they will offer you this whole amount to spend but if by chance you use another make they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice so you really cannot loose by taking part can you? But please dont forget if you are entering more than once you are allowed 3 entries and at least one of these must carry one of our products either a Image, Paper or Printable.
And now to show you my card:-


This little lady is called "The Best Soccer Player" and you will find her here, we have in the family a very talented young lady who really not only loves playing Soccer but also Rugby so I thought this was a ideal image to use for her Birthday Card I hope you do to.
I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used my Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of green card. The sentiment is one from my stash and the mount is a smaller one of the same die as the one used on the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi papers and this set are obviously about football, and I have used four of the papers and used a border punch along 3 on them and layered them up as shown.
I then placed a ribbon across the top and down the left side and attached it to the back of the first mount and then placed my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish off I have used three football buttons down the right hand edge at the top.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Girl Power" Challenge.
