Something Else on Saturday #191 Featuring Birthday Elf from Alicia Bel

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I have made a bridge card, which I have never done before. It was really easy to do except for lining up the scallops every time and getting that right! I think if I did it again, I would use a border punch instead!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #538 - Something Cold

Good morning and welcome to my first Dt post of the year for the Paper Shelter. The challenge always takes a long break over the holiday season and Team A returned with their first challenge last week and now it's my team's turn!

Our challenge this week is called Something Cold - you can use anything as long as it represents that cold something, so think cold colours, cold weather, cold food, being cold etc. 

For my card I used the adorable Skating Is Such Fun! digi stamp and went for a cold blue and navy colour combo. I added a partial die cut, covered with glossy accents to the bottom of my patterned paper to make it look like she was skating on some ice.

All Things Magical and Mythical #69 Featuring Unicorn Lucy from C.C. Designs

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mythical post. For today's card, I pulled out this cute image from C.C. Designs which I got as a digi stamp years ago before they stopped doing their digis (although I think they still do the odd one here and there!) C.C.

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday. For today's card I have used one of my very few Hello Bluebird stamp sets, which I bought from a stamp store in Germany who have some sets in stock. They haven't updated their stock for ages though so don't have any of the newer stamps in, which is a shame.

Something Else on Saturday #190 Featuring Sweet Treats from Di's Digi Stamps

Good morning and welcome to my Something Else on Saturday post for this week. I am trying to use up some of the digi stamps that I printed ages ago for one of my new year's crafting goals. I don't print as I need them, I just print a big batch in one go as it saves me having to dig the printer out from under the bed every time I want to print something! So this week, I coloured up this cute little cat with his macarons (One of my fave treats!) and made a big 8 x 8 inch card for my work stash of birthday cards! 

While hunting for something else, I found a tub of old paper flowers and thought I would use these for a change! It's amazing how quickly us crafters forget things we used to love using once we have something new to use instead! I can't remember the last time I used paper flowers like these! Look pretty though without adding too much bulk to the card as well!
