Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge is a Picture Perfect Challenge.  We were to use this Picture as inspiration for our project. 
Here's my take on the Inspiration Picture.  I used the Chit Chat, Reflections, Perky Plants, and Hullabaloo stamp sets from Paper Smooches.  I fussy cut the leaves and added some pearls for blossoms.  The sentiments are double stamped to create shadows and dimension.  Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details on how to participate in this fun challenge! :)

Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect

 This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge is to create a card using this picture as inspiration!  Aren't the patterns and colors just gorgeous?  What a great starting point for any card!
Here's my creation using the inspiration photo.  I followed it pretty closely using Paper Smooches stamps from the Reflections and Pretty Phrases sets.  I also used a fun chevron embossing folder from ProvoCraft and some white embossing powder and gray satin ribbon.  I just love the clean and modern look!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have fun creating with this fun challenge!

Paper Smooches SPARKS November Designer Drafts

Today begins a new challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge blog!  This week's Designer Drafts Challenge is to create a card using this fun sketch! :)

Here's my take on this great sketch!  I used Paper Smooches' All Yule Need stamp set.  I've paper pieced the ornaments using some fun October Afternoon patterned papers, added fun glitter papers, tinsel trim, and gems for lots of sparkle.  I had lots of fun creating and I hope you'll give this sketch a try! :)

You're Reel Great!

This card uses some super cute stamps from the My Guy set from Paper Smooches.  I've stamped the fish onto the background with versamark, embossed the kraft paper with a super fun new Spellbinders folder, copic colored the fish and added a fun wiggle eye to this cutie.  The image and sentiment strips are popped up for dimension and I added glossy accents to the colored images.  Just can't get enough of these fun stamps! :)

Make a Wish!

This card uses stamps from the Little Lady and Sentiment Sampler sets from Paper Smooches.  I've colored the image with copics and added some stickles dots for highlights.  The fun papers are from Pebbles, such fun patterns! :)

Cup of Smiles

For this card I used a fun template and stamp from Paper Smooches.  I printed out the template, traced it onto patterned paper and added the patterned stripes.  Kim Hughes from Paper Smooches has the cutest card templates, check out all the cute designs along with the wonderful stamps! :)

Peace, Love, and Happiness!

Aren't these gingerbread men from Paper Smooches so CUTE!?!?!  I just had so much fun cutting these little guys out and adding gel pen "frosting" and gem cheeks!  This gingham fabric tape goes so well with the folk art style of the stamps and the sentiment is just so fun!  The gingerbread men have been popped up for added dimension.  Thanks for looking! :)

Love You!

I used some fun stamps from the FOLKal Points set from Paper Smooches for this card.  I stamped the sentiment, flower and heart onto white cardstock and punched a heart and colored it all in.  I added the cross stitch stamp randomly to the edge of the card and doodled a little frame.  The stamped images are covered with glossy accents for a bit of dimension.  Thanks for looking!! :)

You're Tee-Riffic!

Here's a fun card I did using the My Guy set from Paper Smooches.  I just LOVE these stamps and have been having so much fun creating with them.  The possibilities are just endless!  I used white gel pen to color the golf card and ball, added silver brads for the wheels, and glossy accents to add dimension to the images. Thanks for looking! :)

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge (Oct. 8-14)

Here's my card for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!  For this sketch challenge, I chose to create a little flower scene.  I've used stamps from the Paper Smooches Daisies and Paisleys set, paper piecing the flowers and leaves.  The patterned papers are from the Pebbles Sunnyside line.  For the stems, I simply cut skinny strips of paper and added marker detail to both sides to create a faux 'stamped' stem.  This was a tricky sketch for me, but I had fun putting together this cheery card! :)

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Card

I created this card for the Paper Smooches Trend Watch Challenge, based on the picture below.  I used the owl from Chubby Chums, 'branch' created with clothes line from Pip Squeeks, and leaves from Reflections set.  I added some fun wiggle eyes to the owl and glossy accents to the leaves.  The edges of the card were inked with distress ink for shading.  The owl is popped off the card with foam tape.  Thanks for looking!! :)


Paper Smooches One Layer Card Challenge

This card is for the one layer card challenge over at Paper Smooches.  I used these gorgeous flower and leaf stamps from the Reflections set.  I added Viva Decor pearl pen to the flower centers.  This was a fast and fun card to put together! Thanks for looking! :)

Paper Smooches 'Pink' Challenge

Here's another card for the Paper Smooches World Card Making Day challenges.  For this challenge we were to use pink.  I thought a pink polka dot hippo would be kinda fun! :)  This card uses stamps from the Zoo Crew set, I just love the fun animals!  I used patterned papers for the three animals and popped them off the card.  I added white gel pen for the details and eyes.  Thanks for looking! :)

World Card Making Day (after!)

I had a chance to participate in the Paper Smooches challenges for World Card Making Day!  I was busy with family yesterday, but today I spent some time having fun with some new stamps! :)  This card uses the sketch from Paper Smooches.  It's hard to tell, but I stamped a bunch of images from Pip Squeaks onto the pink layer for a tone-on-tone look.  The baby has some twine 'hair', I just had to add it!  Thanks for looking! :)
