Paper Smooches Creations


Hello everyone....hope all is well with you!! I am finally breathing a sigh of relief...my church Christmas in July craft sale was last Saturday and I worked my little fingers to the bone all week trying to get my Christmas card sets finished!! We had a great sale and decided to have another one in November. Hopefully, I will get started on my card sets much sooner...LOL!!!! I will have some pictures later in the week but today I wanted to share some cards that I made with Paper Smooches stamps. Did you know they are now a member company on Splitcoast?? Here is a link to their forum....you will find lots of useful info, challenges, and fun chit chat!!! 

I made this fun Christmas card for last weeks Color Challenge on Splitcoast.  The challenge colors were Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, and Kraft. My card features stamps from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes set...the snowmen were colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up on foam dots. The papers are from my scrap basket and the wood snowflake and twine finish it off.



This card was made for last weeks Ways to Use it Challenge to use metal on  our projects. 
It's been a while since I have used any metal on my cards......I used a few little flower brads...the backs were taken off and glue dots were used to adhere them to the grass. The flower image from Paper Smooches Perky Plants set was paper pieced with papers from Jellibean Soup. The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Chubby Chums set and the twine is the finishing touch. This is also for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. 


My last card was made for the Free 4 All Challenge on Splitcoast to revisit a past challenge. 
I love orange so I just had to revisit F4A61 to use orange somewhere on a card or project. The yummy images from Paper Smooches Sugar Rush set were colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up on foam dots. Washi tape was used at the bottom and the sentiment is from the same set.

That's about it tonight....It's after midnight and I need to get these old bones in bed!!! Have a fabulous day!!!!
