{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Let's Have a Laugh with Paper Smooches + Video!



Welcome to the fourth Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in January! This week's challenge is Let's Have a Laugh which means we want to see something funny or punny. The design team is featuring Paper Smooches. ♥ You don't have to use them but we'd love to see them if you have any! Paper Smooches generously supplied the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge team with stamps or dies of their choice and you will definitely be inspired by all of their cards. They're definitely smile- and chuckle-worthy!


I knew I wanted to create a totally ridiculous scene for this challenge. I mean, it's what I do, right? ;) I chose to feature the devious cat from Nine Lives. I also used sentiments from Captured Moments and various other stamps from Perpetrual Bliss (microphone), Wicked Nauticool (stand), Smarty Pants (star, thumb tack) and Pretty Mamma (spool) to complete the scene. I used the Ovals 1 dies to create the sparkly hoop, the Bam Bubble dies to dry emboss the background and, of course, the coordinating Nine Lives die for the cat.


Here's how I made the card:



One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!



I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)

Love learning from your videos. This time I learned how easy it is to dry emboss using dies that I only use for cutting. The card turned out super and showed me your humorous side. I like it!

The concept of a cat doing a trick on command is pretty amazing, lol :D
Love the embossing in the background - subtle but it makes the scene!
