{Paper Smooches} August 2013 Release Party!

Hello and welcome to the Paper Smooches August 2013 Release Party! Join us over at the Splitcoast Forum for the next two hours HERE. Bring a friend and comment for a chance to win prizes! We even have a special guest joining us! It's going to be so much fun. I hope to see you there.

After my son went to bed, I whipped up this card just for tonight's party. It took me 30 minutes which is crazy since I'm a very slow crafter but it's now one of my most recent favourites. I featured the newest release, Borderlicious, which you will be able to purchase at 12:00 a.m. EST on August 1st! I also featured five other stamp sets including three of my all-time must-haves: Smarty Pants, Metropolis, Shadows, Birthday Sampler and Hullabaloo. I created a mask of the professor before turning his pointer into a firecracker and stamping the shadow to anchor him above the sentiment.

Thank you so much for your support of Paper Smooches! Have fun shopping tonight!! :D


{Simon Says Stamp} Anything Goes Challenge

I'm back with my last post as Guest Designer for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is to create an Anything Goes card using Simon Says Stamp exclusives. I used the skunk and sentiments from the Stinkin' Cute stamp set, as well as the door and cloud dies from Where Your Heart Is to create the trees.

I dry embossed the tree trunks with the woodgrain texture fades folder and die cut the hills with snow drifts. I curved the sentiments on my acrylic block before stamping them along the edges of the hills. I made this card to remind me that even though life (really) stinks sometimes, there's still beauty all around me and I have to appreciate the good stuff. :)

I hope you will play along with us this week!
