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………

Birthday Wishes!

Hello all!

I am here today with a quick post featuring a birthday card I made a while ago for a friend.

Here is the card………

To make this  card I die cut some flags from a favourite paper pad…… Pebbles Family Ties. I then stamped and white embossed my sentiment using another great Paper Smooches sentiment stamp and added a couple of die cut circles with a button to form a focal point. Finally adding bow for a finishing touch!

Supplies: Card – Bazzill Card shoppe Gumball. Paper – Pebbles Family Ties 6×6 pad. Dies – MFT Fishtail Flag Stax  and Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Circles. Stamps – Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler. Ribbon –  Stampin Up Ribbon Originals Mistletoe. Button – from my stash

Have a lovely weekend! I am hoping o get some crafty time this weekend including having a play with some new MFT goodies that arrived this week I’ll be back soon to show you the results!!

Birthday Card Duo!

Hello Again!

So I seem to be making a lot of birthday cards lately!! These two variations on the same design were made for a card order but I was not happy that they met the brief given….They started out as wedding cards. So I turned them into birthday cards as you can never have too many of those right!!

Here are the cards……

P1000570

P1000572

Both cards were made by layering papers from on the top one Websters Pages Girl Land and the bottom from Echo Park Beautiful Life. The 2 centre strips were die cut using PTI Half & Half Dies . For the sentiment I used one of my favourite PTI dies – Happy Day -I love it as it is great for layering with so many other die cut/punched shapes in this case the Large Oval from SU. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler – another of their great fun sentiment sets . Lastly I added some ribbon and buttons to finish them off.

Supplies: Card – PTI Vintage Cream. Papers – Websters Pages Girl Land and Echo Park Beautiful Life. Dies PTI Half & Half Dies and Happy Day Die. Stamps – Paper Smooches Birthday Sampler. Ink – Versafine Onyx Black. Ribbon MFT Grapesicle Grosgrain and SU Daffodil Delight Taffeta. Buttons – PTI New Leaf and Lemon Tart.

See you soon, enjoy your weekend!
