Love You Dearly

Hi everyone. I’m here today with a card using a rubber stamp from Stampendous and a Paper Smooches sentiment stamp.

Before we get to the card making, I just wanted to announce that I will be starting my holiday card series on November 15. Each card will have companion video to go along with it. I will also have giveaways through out the card series. I will release more details as the date gets closer. I hope you come and join the fun.

Now for this card, I wanted to make a card for a friend who is going through something and I thought the flowers and bright colors will cheer her up.

Here is my card —

Love You Dearly

I started this card with Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size landscape card. For the background, I stamped the top portion of the card with the Zinnia stamp from Stampendous with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed it. For the sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from the Pretty Phrases set from Paper Smooches with the same Versafine ink and also clear embossed it for more dimension. I attached a strip of some Shallows layering paper from Hero Arts to separate the background from the sentiment area. I covered the strip with some Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush for some shine.

For the flower focal image, I stamped the Zinnia on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored it in with Copics. I will have the colors below but I wanted to use orange, blue and yellow tones on the flower. After coloring, I fussy cut the flower and colored the edges with a black marker. I adhered the flower with foam tape. To finish the card, I colored the entire flower with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush for sparkle and shine.

This card is an entry for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge theme  – ANTHING GOES.

Thanks Ever So Much

Hi everyone! I’m here with a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.


This week, the challenge theme is PICTURE PERFECT based on this inspiration picture.



Here is my card —

Thanks Ever So Much

I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top using Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I adhered a panel of patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Fresh Cuts 6×6 pad. I also cut a strip of patterned paper from the same Fresh Cuts pad to adhere to the left side of the card.

For the flowers, I was looking at the free digi section of the Paper Smooches website and I fell in love with these flowers. I immediately printed them and colored them in with various colors of Copic Markers. I attached them with foam tape and accented the center with a clear gem from Hero Arts.

For the sentiment, I used the Pretty Phrases stamp set and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed it for a raised finish.

To finish the card, I adhered some coordinating colors of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

You’re a Hoot

Hey Everyone! 🙂

I’m here today with a card to inform everyone about the Paper Smooches August DT Blog Hop. Paper Smooches is releasing a new line of stamps and dies which will be on sale starting September 1.

I decided to make a card using some of the awesome free digis you can download over at their website.

Here is my card —

You're A Hoot

I started with a card base measuring 3 1/2 by 5 1/2. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from ColorBok’s Hootenanny collection. I printed the digital images on some Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored the owl and branch image with some American Crafts Chromatix markers. I rounded all four corners of the panel and drew stitching lines with the Sakura green metallic gel pen. To finish the card, I adhered the panel on the base and rounded the side corners.

1. Neenah Solar White card stock
2. ColorBok’s Hootenanny paper collection
3. Paper Smooches owl, branch, and setiment free digi
4. American Crafts Chromatix Markers
