You're Cool

Good Morning
 It's the start of our little summer break at The Paper Shelter and the theme for the extra long challenge is Anything goes. I've gone with the holiday summer theme by using Ice Cream Man.
I put him with the perfect Ice Cream cone paper and coloured it in pinks and mint greens. I added some pink pom pom trim that reminded me of scooped Ice cream and added some twine with an ice cream cone charm attached. Finally I stamped the You're cool onto the chippie flag.  

I could live off Ice Cream at the moment in this amazing heat wave!

So you have extra time to join the challenge this time and I know its school hols but why not get the kids creating too... Great way to spend an afternoon and its free!!

See you soon,

Cracker image for a Pun

Morning - 
Have you seen this new image yet from Dr Digi. Its called Safecracker Sam. 
I enjoyed colouring him as I got to practice my Black shading. Using a little trick I had learnt at a copic class of leaving a small lighter edge to show some the depth.
And you know I love a pun so what better than this "Cracker" but I do wonder if Sam got much swag? 
 The paper is from My favourite things and I mounted the image onto black card. I used green lettters from Doodlebug and some silver and black letters from Hobbycraft. 
Have a fab Sunday peeps, See you next week

OOPs - I forgot to post this.... this is my new card for the new All Dressed Up Challenge on the blog. The theme is always Anything goes with an ADU image and I used one of the new rubber stamps from Crafteezee - called  Looking good.
I wanted to practice my Black colouring and am pleased with how they have turned out, 

Hope you like it and will play along,

Lazy Days Of Summer

How is the weather doing round your way? Yesterday was our local parade day and it turned out nice but today is expected to be the mo its quite cloudy but warm. Im not sure its suitable for
Paddling Pool Peggy from Dr Digi to lounge in like on this picture. And regardless... I have to empty and sort out under the stairs whilst we still have the skip on the drive. So no lazy days of Summer for me at the mo!!
Hope your get a chance to relax today - that's what Sundays are for!

I coloured Peggy with Copics and the paper & greeting sticker is from Echo Park I love Sunshine collection. I used a My Favourite things scalloped edge die to cut the blue paper and a posca pen to add dots to Peggys swimsuit.

Trekking Girl

Hello -
There is a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Holidays. I used this image called
Trekking Girl
I really struggle to not go full bold colour on everything... so I'm pleased with the soft tones I managed to stick to with this card.  I teamed it with kraft card and a grey boarder to match the font. I kept it simple but I think its a cute card.

Thanks for visiting my blog - its appreciated,

This time I played with an image called Fruitti Tutti. I actually picked this one as I knew I had the perfect paper to go with it!! This paper is so lovely!!
I used a chippie from Make it crafty and coloured it to match with copics. 

Thanks for stopping by,

All Dressed Up Copic Challenge July 2019

It is the 1st July! It will soon be Christmas... (EEK -Should I have started making Christmas Cards??) So it does mean that there is a new challenge over at Copic UK and this months optional theme is to use An All Dressed Up Image... This is to celebrate the new Rubber stamps that have been released and are available from Crafteezee but these fabulous images are also available from the All Dressed Up Stamps store on Etsy (And there are also some freebies on the the All Dressed Up blog... #enabler!) 

Of course the theme is always an optional extra and we love to see any creation using copics so with all these mediums covered there really is no excuse to not join in for your chance to win a prize from our Faye.

I have played with this rubber stamp called Time to Shine. 
I used vellum over the base card and a star die cut with pink satin card. I covered the glass with glaze and sprinkled a little cosmic shimmer to give it a little sparkle.
I also made this card with the new rubber stamps and haven't shown this card yet. This image is called What to wear.
I used a greeting from Pebbles and added a couple of red gems to copy the gold dots. I also added some red ribbon.

Right that's all for now. I hope you get to join in the Copic challenge or the All dressed up blog challenge which is always an Anything goes theme as long as you use an All Dressed Up image.
