Paper Smooches – February Designer Draft

Helle Again!!

Well I am back at last after a loooooooooong break! Stuff happens as we all know and can get in the way of blogging and crafting!

For my first post I have a card for the Paper Smooches February Designer Draft. I love Paper Smooches stamps and dies especially the sentiments which are always a go to for me!

So here is the inspiration for this challenge……..

A great simple sketch that would be a basis for many different cards. For my card I followed the sketch pretty closely using a couple of great Paper Smooches sets and some cool new papers from the new AMy Tangerine line – Plus One.

I usually try to interpret sketches in a more creative way but as I am still having to look around for my mojo a bit so I am keeping things simple for now :)

So here is my card………

Supplies: Card – SU Basic Grey, PTI white. Papers – Amy Tangerine Plus One 6 x 6. Stamps – Paper Smooches Boob Tubes and Slang Gang. Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black. Copic Markers N1 and N3. Pearls – Doodlebug. Twine and button from my stash.

Back Tomorrow with another card for Freshly made Sketches!

Bye for now  x

Hello

This time I have got a card… (well 3 actually!) that I created for the latest challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge blog. This week it is the Designer Drafts Challenge.

Here is the sketch for the challenge……..

So for my card(s) I used several of my favourite Paper Smooches stamp sets to create 3 colourful cards. On the Top two I stamped a background of dots with the Geographic stamp set and on the bottom one made a background out of strips of Washi tape. I then created my centre panel using the Boob Tubes set and popped it up on foam tape to give some dimension.

Here are my Cards…..

Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect Challenge

Hi There

Here is my latest card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.……..Picture Perfect.

Picture-Perfect-LOGO

The idea with this challenge is that a photo provides inspiration for a project. So here is this week’s photo!

AUG_2013

Don’t you just love those frames! I decided to use a great set of frame dies and stamps from Papertrey Ink together with some bright happy ink colours. The sentiments are from various Paper Smooches sentiment stamp sets. I think I have collected almost all of their sentiment sets……..I love the funky fonts and great sentiments!

I stamped a couple of the frames and sentiments flat on the card base and popped the rest up on foam dots to add some dimension.

Here is the finished card………

P1000460

Supplies: Card – PTI White. Stamps – PTI Label Basics, Paper Smooches Many Thanks, Slang Gang and Good Gab. Inks – PTI Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Pure Poppy. MFT Sour Apple, Grape Jelly, Blu Raspberry and Lemon Drop.

Bye until next time!
