Pump it Up! For The Paper Shelter Challenge

 Let's get physical at The Paper Shelter challenge! It's time for a new challenge, and 'let's get physical' is the theme.  

My husband, at the age of 65, lifts weights every day.  He has stayed in excellent shape!  I made this card with him in mind: 

The image I used is from the Workout Time set. I colored the image with Copic markers, then fussy cut it out.  The blue background paper is from We Are 3 Digital Shop (no longer in business). The card is 4x6.  It is an unusual size for me, but the brick wall (die from Crafter's Companion) fit on the card size well. The sentiment was created by me and computer generated. 

I hope you join in our challenge this week!  The above graphic explains the prizes.  If you win and use a The Paper Shelter image, you get 6 products of your choice.  Use any other image and win 3 products of your choice.  Get coloring!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Cardz for Guys -- anything masculine
Digi Choosday -- anything goes
613 Avenue Create -- masculine

Tool Box -- a New Release for All Dressed Up Stamps

 Woohoo!  It's New Release showcase day at All Dressed Up Stamps! You'll find 3 new releases and lots and lots of other wonderful digital images in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop. 

For this month's new release, I had the pleasure of designing with Tool Box.  It's perfect for Father's Day or other masculine themed cards!

I colored Tool Box with Copic markers, then got to designing my card.  The brick background paper is from We Are 3 Digital Shop (no longer in business). I thought t the bricks were the perfect background for our little worker.

The sentiment is one I made up, and it is computer generated.  The die cut tools are from a Crafter's Companion set. 

The design team has been hard at work creating some inspiration for you.  Please check the All Dressed Up Facebook group and the ADU Challenge blog to see what the other fantastic designers have created!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Time to Celebrate -- for The Paper Shelter

I'm back on The Paper Shelter's design team!  I am so excited to be back! There are weekly challenges I'm hoping you'll participate in, and I'll be posting for The Paper Shelter's challenge every 2nd week. 

There are often great sales and special offers at The Paper Shelter.  It's always a great time to check out the store.

The challenge that starts today and runs for a week is "A Time to Celebrate".  There are lots of great occasions to celebrate!

Did you know that The Paper Shelter now has coloring books and papers?  I used a page from the Flowers PDF Coloring Book.  There are 24 pages in this book! Here's what I created: 

I colored the Flowers coloring page with a combination of Copic and Olo markers.  It was so fun to color this beauty!  I then fussy cut the Flower image and placed it on a couple of die cuts, and used a die cut Celebrate for the sentiment.  A few jewels finished the card.

I hope you can join us for The Paper Shelter's 'Time to Celebrate' challenge. Use a Paper Shelter digi and win 6 products of your choice!  Use any other image and win 3 TPS products! Get coloring and enter!

Butterfly Hairdo -- for All Dressed Up Stamps

  Hello, and happy June!  Thanks for visiting my blog.

June first starts a new challenge in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook group. The theme for June is 'wings/tails/paws'. This does include fairies. There are many, many ADU images that fit this theme.  You will find them in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop

My card for the challenge uses the digital stamp, 'Butterfly Hair'. 

I colored Butterfly Hair with a combination of Copic and Olo markers.

I designed the card using dies from Memory Box to cut out the image and back her.  The papers on this card are from Crafter's Companion.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  The butterfly die cuts are from Cheery Lynn, with foil paper from Anna Griffin. 

I hope you can enter the ADU FB challenge.  I'd love to see what you create!
