The Paper Shelter Challenge

Good morning sorry I am late in posting my challenge card Noodles decided to sit on the windowsill and launch cat sick all over everything, so I have been cleaning the entire kitchen, a nice start to the day NOT, anyways today is a new challenge over at "The Paper Shelter"...




As always Veronica & Pedro offer one lucky winner a $30 voucher to spend in store on these gorgeous images....

The challenge today is Embossing, it could be dry or wet I chose dry as I have no plug where I craft and wet embossing always scares me as I end up with a huge mess :0)




I have used "Connected" she has been coloured with markers and cut of, I used a embossing folder for my background and I used 3d pads to sit her proud, I added some little pearls and a sentiment, I do hope you can join in with us this time, I have my mojo back now things have settled down here, so I will be creating :0) thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Chris

Good morning today I am sharing a boy card with a stamp from "C.C Designs" I got these a while back as I knew I had a few male cards coming up, I really enjoy making cards for the males as I can do scrap card with lots of layers, this image is called "Chris" there is a huge gap for grown up stamps and these are fabulous there is a few boys and some grown up girls too and this range have become my very favourite...




I got a gift last week of the new 8 colours distress inks and I have used them on this card, the paper was a gift too I got a big pile I have not had any papers for such a long time so I smelled them a while first :0), I did ink all the edge with the Hickory smoke too, I love the new colours, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Elisabeth Bell

Good morning today I am sharing a card with an older Elisabeth Bell stamp, I believe she was Bells N Whistles stamp but I could be wrong as she is my favourite designer in the whole world I have a lot of her stamps and I popped them all in one box and never made a note of names.....




I have been playing or trying to play with my distress ink pads, I know I still have a long way to go and my bin has seen the most of them, but I think I am making a little progress and I find it so relaxing painting images, I just added a strip of scrap down one side, I added a sentiment and some enamel dots, and I added a little bit of sparkle to her patch on her jeans and the tie on her top, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Paint with Penny

Good morning, sorry I have been absent for a while, the school holidays are always so super busy for me and on top of that I have been making Shaleise's friend some wedding invites something I have never done before, I had to get my best friend to set up my printer for me and leave it like that while I have finished them as I do not do sizes, numbers are so not my friend, anyway I got this cutie sent to me a while back and everything that could go wrong did :0) 




First my skin ran out so I had to use a different skin, then my brown went sticky and messed up her hair, then as I was cutting the little panel some how the image ended up being under and cut the end of the image so I decided I am still using her :0) and dont think she turned out so bad, I so need a full set of new Copic markers though as I need to colour so I trying to save some pennies but I have been trying to learn distress inks but still cannot get my head around them, maybe one day, so this is my Monday disaster, happy accident, but she is so cute she is called "Paint with Penny" and she is from Di's Digis, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x

I am back...

Good morning everyone I am so sorry I have been absent for a while, we got a new addition to the household and I have been trying to get him in a routine, I got him to go with Brina since Lula left in February she has been so down in herself now eating not wanting to play or go out and the vet said she was depressed, we had long talks and decided that as she had never been alone before maybe she needed a playmate, so we went ahead and got her one and she is now eating and playing and walking and she is more like herself again, she is mothering him so all is good, but I had forgotten just how much hard work a puppy is and I have been working so hard with the toileting that I have not had much time to craft, but we are in a routine now and all is good and I can play again, but I do have to be careful as he steals things and runs of with them, he is so comical, so here is a photo of Harry...




I am today sharing a white card that I made a few weeks ago...




I used "Heart Lattice" embossing folder, I did the sentiment n the laptop and cut it out using "Opulent Ovals" I added some flowers using "Pretty Peonies" and some ribbon and white pearls, I also added a tag but left if simple, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Flutters

Good morning, today I am sharing another card using lots of different bit, I got these stamps about 2 years ago and found them when I was sorting out last week so of course I had to have a play....




I made the background with "Tombow" markers I scribbled on my paper and sprayed with water and let it run, I took a honeycomb stencil and popped it over the top and sprayed with water again and pressed some kitchen towel on it to create a pattern, once this had dried I stamped my "Flutters" on and coloured them using Tombow markers, I added some blue gelato around each one and some white highlights with pen and acrylic pain, I then added some "Tiny Script" using a gold gelato and some with a white ink pad, then the girls had this label maker so I borrowed it to create my sentiment, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x 



I do not have a video so I used my mobile, I had to wait for each bit to dry as I do not have a heat gun, pics was taken on my mobile so quality is not good, hope you get the drift though and this helps you, hugs Pops x x x















































































The glaze it to seal it all in that way no amount of splashing will ruin it, a lesson I learned :0)
