Challenge #393 - Punches and Dies - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well we are back after a three week break, I sincerely hope you didnt miss us to much and still took part in our Anything Goes Challenge, anyway we are back and ready to get started in a new season of Challenges and this weeks theme is

Punches and Dies

we would love to see you use both of these on your cards and look forward to seeing what you come up with.
And you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from to. Our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But don't forget they will only give you the whole amount if you have used one of their images on your card but don't worry if you haven't, they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice if you are picked as a winner.
For this weeks card I have used this image
   

This young lady is titled "Trekking Girl" you will find her here, and I thought this image was ideal for my eldest daughter who loves being outdoors, either jogging or walking, as she now lives in Indonesia she has lots of opportunity to do both.
I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of green card. 
The base card is a 6.50"x6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and has also been mounted on a piece of green card and placed in the bottom right hand corner.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle of the card, and in the top two corners I have used some punched out butterflies in green card and then placed some gems along the folded edge.
Now that you've 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 Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Punches and Dies" Challenge to.

Summer Break Holiday Challenge - Anything Goes - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, this weeks Challenge is a bit different as its to be a special Holiday Break one which means that both Teams are taking part and it also means we wont be commenting on your cards or entries, this is to give the girls a break to spend time with their families and not having to spend time watching whats going on on the Challenge Blog. The theme is

Anything Goes

as you know this is a extremely popular one and we love to see what you come up with.
And you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from to. Our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

For this weeks card I have used this image
 
 
For my own card Ive used this image "Jogging with Rythm" which you will find here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount in pink card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is also the same pink card and the mount, on top of this I have used the backing paper that came with the image and you will find it here. The reason for using this gorgeous image is that my eldest daughter is very keen on jogging and often goes out with her hubby around the Indonesian park where she lives and I felt it was an idea subject to make a card for her.
The sentiment is one from my stash and mounted in the same way as the image, Ive also used a strip of lace on top of a wide pink ribbon which has been wrapped around the middle of the card then the mounted image was placed on top in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.

Challenge #389 - Going Digital - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, not long now before the Children break up for the long summer holidays, lets hope the weather starts to improve by then as I'm sure a lot of mothers are going to be pulling their hair out if they have to have them under their feet all the time if they cannot get out into the garden,
This weeks theme is all about

Going Digital

which most images these days are based on and our company is all digital so if should be an easy theme to follow.

The final embellishments are the 2 star buttons in two opposite corners.

Challenge #385 - Flower Power - The Paper Shelter

This weeks theme over on The Paper Shelter is to use

Flower Power

on your card designs, and obviously this can take many ways of using them either in the backing paper, or even a garden topper but for me its all about adding them to the embellishments but the choice is yours.
For the last couple of weeks my life has been upside down, what with spending a dreadful noisy night in hospital for suspected stroke and the visits of so many members of my family lets hope now that things start to settle down again, being as we are rather a quiet family just myself, hubby and the two dogs it takes a lot out of you, it was lovely to see the family though and I miss them when they go.
Anyway back to this weeks theme.
And you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from to. Our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

And for my own card I chose to use this image


This little lass is titled "Little Dutch Girl" as you would expect and you will find her here, I then printed the image onto white paper before colouring it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and mount her then onto a piece of pink card which has also been die cut with a fancy edge. The sentiments are ones from my stash and have been stamped onto white card and mounted also on to another piece of the same pink card.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card, the backing paper is from the same design from the image and you will find it here.
I placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom left hand corner, I used a pearl and diamonte strip down the right hand side with a bunch of tulips tied with a white ribbon in the top left hand corner.
