The Paper Shelter Challenge #540 - Something You Love

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is Something You Love, which is completely open to interpretation. You could make a Valentine's card for someone you love, you could use colours you love or an image or theme that you love. I decided to go with something I love a lot - shoes! I have so many shoes, not quite enough for a new pair every day, but not far off either! And I don't wear most of them either! Naughty me! 

Anyway here's my card using the gorgeous Mad About Shoes image in a purply pink and black combo, which is a combo I love as well.

Scene It Sunday #130 featuring Wizard Boy from Paper Nest Dolls

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. Today I have used the cute Wizard Boy (aka Harry Potter, but can't call him that obviously!) from Paper Nest Dolls. I love the Harry Potter books and movies, but not the author so much, so have to separate her from her work! 

To create my scene, I used some stencils to create the stone wall and cobbled floor, although I probably should have just gone with grey floor as well as the wall, but they needed to be different and I only have 1 grey Distress Oxide ink! Now with the new one out, I best buy it and expand my colour range! I also used some Hallowe'en dies to add a broom and cauldron as well so Wizard Boy can cook up his potion for a happy birthday!

Ink 'n' Splatter February Color Challenge

Good afternoon and welcome to the very first Color Challenge from Ink 'n' Splatter. Dina has decided to host this challenges every month and we would love to see you all joining in with your Ink 'n' Splatter stamps.

The DT were also challenged with making a CAS card, but I really struggle with those. I just want to add more pretty papers and ribbons and gems and lots of other things to hide all that white space, so this one really challenged me! I opted for a Christmas card using the adorable Snow Wonderful Snowmen stamp set as this allowed me to leave lots of white space, yet at the same time it still had lots of colour to it! OK I feel like I cheated a bit here, but I got the colours in, right?!

Papers: Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo & Basic White all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty
