The Paper Shelter Challenge #302 - Dies and/or Punches


I went for a sepia look on my card this week. I used the stamp Vintage Seamstress. She is coloured with Copics. I used a die for the shape of the card and added ribbon and lace through the spaces. I used a Martha Stewart border punch above and below the image. I stamped the edges of the image with a zigzag stitch stamp. The corner heart and buttons stamp and the sentiment are part of a stamp set. My papers are from DCWV Linen and Lace paper pack. The bottom embellishments are buttons and I have added a variety of flowers and smaller buttons to finish it off.

I have used Vintage Teacher digital stamp. I coloured her with Copics. My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret collection. I labelled my filing drawers using the Prima Press alphabet stamp set. My favourite ribbon to tie bows these days is using seam binding from The Ribbon Girl.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #294 - Stitching Faux or Real

It's time for a new weekly challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week the challenge is to use faux or real stitching.


I have used a printed image from The Paper Shelter called "I can fix". I normally use a digital stamp and colour it in but I decided to try the printed image this week and it is fabulous. You have to try it! I used a Prima stitching stamp around the edges of the image and the stitch-edge tag and distressed the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink and both were cut out with dies. My paper is from a Hot Off The Press paper pack called Floral Fantasy. The tool corner frame is a die called "Tool Corner" by Amy Design and "Mini Fanciful Flourish Left" by Cheery-Lynn Designs.

A few other pics show off the gorgeous flowers, brads, corner and lace bow.

Winnie Fruit Punch Wishes




I have made a multi fold card and you might see a few more of these in the near future because I love the layout. I used the adorable Winnie Fruit Punch Wishes stamp from Polkadoodles, coloured her with Copics, added Crystal Stickles to the flower centres and heart and tiny dots of Liquid Pearls around the image. I used Ground Espresso ink to distress the edges of all my papers which are from the First Edition Isabelle paper pad. I cut the image from a Spellbinders die, used a Martha Stewart heart border punch and added some doilies. The sentiment is part of a stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy and the border is another Spellbinders die called Fancy Label Tags 4. I recently went on a shopping spree and found this beautiful lace and these stunning Prima flowers.

Here's a few more pics of my card from different angles...



And some close up shots...
