Something else on Saturday #26 Featuring Princess and Apple from Paper Nest Dolls

Good morning and Happy Saturday! It's the end of my first week back at school after my 6 week summer holidays and boy am I shattered! I always am the first few weeks as I try to get back into the early morning routine again! Loving being back to teaching again though!

Anyway...this week's Something Else is a quick bookmark I made for school for our class reader (which is Terry's Deary's The Phantom of the Nile as the Ancient Egyptians are our first topic). I used the adorable Princess and Apple from the Paper Nest Dolls as I thought the Snow White was perfect for school!

Scrapper's Delights Special Deals

Good evening everyone and welcome to my DT post for this month's Special Deals from Scrapper's Delights. I decided to go for a Hallowe'en theme this month and chose to use the adorable Halloween Sachifor my card!

This image was lots of fun to colour, all except for the sky - my Copics just didn't want to blend at all well. Not sure if it was the heat or they were just being difficult for difficulty's sake! It doesn't look too bad though, I hope!

I pulled out some old Hallowe'en papers as well and have never used this cat paper before, but I thought it would work well on this card with Sachi's Hallowe'en costume!

Something Else on Saturday #25 Featuring James with Butterflies from Lili of the Valley

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday blog post. I am slowly trying to make my way through my pile of stamps that I have already coloured and this one, James with Butterflies from Lili of the Valley, has been in my folder for absolutely ages. I remember colouring him up for one of the 30 Day Colouring Challenges last year and have never got round to using him, so here he is at long last!

I used some of my old Stampin' Up papers on this one, ones I have almost a full pack of as I never really use the colour combo in them. However, they did work well with this image!

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for the new releases from Scrapper's Delightsthis month. I am sharing the gorgeous Chibi VIP Libra digital stamp today using many of the different images in the set.

I chose these colours at random and love the green and lavender purple combo! I did keep the card fairly simple in terms of layers (I do love my layers), but as there are so many added elements, I didn't think it needed them so much this time.

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I am using the fun Oddball Gamer stamp from Stamping Bella. I love this Oddball collection - they fit my quirky and weird nature perfectly!

As it is a more quirky image, I went for a more quirky layout and did a bit of paper tearing, which I haven't done in years!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Featuring Southern Charm

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink this week. Today I am sharing a card using the gorgeous Southern Charm image from the Pretty Girls With Wings  and Things Volume 2 Colouring Book.


I went for a purple and turquoise colour combo, one of my faves and added some glitter to her wings. I have an addiction to these Nuvo drops as well so added lots of those around the card too.

For my list of Copic colours that I used, head on over to the Faery Ink blog and check out my post there!

Something Else on Saturday #23 Featuring Purple Tender from Chick Chou Kuik

Good Morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I am sharing the gorgeous Purple Tender from Ching Chou Kuik. I haven't actually used a Ching Chou Kuik image for ages, not really since I left the DT a while ago and now that I have used one, I realise that I really miss using them, so will have to get them out more often!

The sentiment was one from the patterned paper pack that I used and was printed along the bottom of one of the sheets. I thought it would go really well with this image, so trimmed it down into smaller chunks to use on this card.


Recipe:
Stamps: Purple Tender from Ching Chou Kuik

The Paper Shelter Challenge #394 Face It!

Good morning and welcome back to thePaper Shelter Challenge! we have had a bit of a summer break and are now back to our usual routine of the weekly challenges with each team taking turns to share their projects for the challenges.

This week's challenge is called Face It and we want to see projects where the main image is just a face, not a full body. You could use one of the gorgeous images from the Paper Shelter store, or alternatively crop an image to show just the face!

I used the magical Glittery and Sparklingimage to make a windowed card. This is the card closed. I added a few stars to the outside to continue the pattern of the digital stamp. These kind of cards are always difficult to close so I added the sentiment at the top so it would overhang and catch the right hand side underneath it and then added some ribbon at the bottom to tie it together there too.


I added some other patterned papers on the inside, but kept it fairly flat so it is easier for adding to an envelope…
