I’ve created a ‘Pirate Ship’ using the Ship template from Sandra’s Scrapshop. My image and sentiment are from Crafty Sentiments Designs. I’ve used ‘Tobey – Arrr Captain’ and ‘Pirates and Seas’.

Happy Together

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..


Any type of embossing is fine. Dry embossing, embossed image, frantage, etc.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I was planning on making a Christmas Card but when I started colouring my image with one of my Copic marker colours it just wasn’t working right. I have now ordered a new set of those colours so hopefully this won’t happen again.

As I was then short on time I chose to use a pre-coloured image for my card. I’m using A Summer Walk.


My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and cut out and layered using Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities. The paper I have used is by Kaisercraft and is from the Summer Breeze Paper Pad. I’ve embossed a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. A piece of lace ribbon, a few pearls and a sentiment finish off my card.

Here’s another photo of the image…

On Your Special Day

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week the challenge is….

‘Glitter or Sparkle’.

Our sponsor for this challenge is….

Aurora Wings

I’m using a cute little Sprite image in my creation today from Aurora Wings.

Here’s what I came up with.


I have printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with my Copic Markers. My image and sentiment have been cut out using the Small & Large Classic & Scallop Circle Nestabilities dies. My card has been edged using the Cherish ‘Around the Page Punch’ set from Martha Stewart.

The colours I’ve used from my image are: E00, E000, E0000, R30, BG02, BG01, BG000, YR68, YR65, YR61, YG95, YG93, YG91, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11.

Here’s a closer look at my image.


The paper I have used is from First Edition and is called Blank Canvas. Some of the prints have a glitter effect to them which I’ve used one on my card. I’ve also added some Dazzling Details to her pants for even more sparkle.

The picture below shows this off better.


I’ve added spray of flowers which I have made using a variety of Wild Orchid Craft flowers. Added a bow of peach seam binding and a few Rhinestones.
