Hello! It's the last blog post for the year and since everyone is making valentine themed cards, I thought I would jump on that bandwagon. This is also another entry in the fantastic Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com/2014/12/december-28-january-3-designer-drafts.html. Take a look.
The super fun patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies from Simon Says Stamp. That lovely little shopping bag is die cut using Paper Smooches Shopping Bag die and then stamped using Blossoming Buds stamp set from Paper Smooches as well. I did some quick selective stamping with a bit of Post It tape to change the sentiment a bit. I then die cut lots of hearts from scrap cardstock and leftover glitter paper. The heart dies used are the Mini Hearts Die set from SSS, Line Shape dies from SSS, Stitched Party Banners from Lawn Fawn and Snow Day dies from Lawn Fawn as well. I also used a tiny heart punch from Stampin Up. I used a bit of foam tape for some dimension for those spilling hearts and called it a day. Thank you so much for checking out my final card of the year. See you next year!

Hi again. It's yet another card for this super fun Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com/2014/12/december-28-january-3-designer-drafts.html. I thought I would do some fun watercoloring today, take a look.
I white heat embossed the flowers from the Blossoming Buds stamp set from Paper Smooches onto some Strathmore cold press watercolor paper. I brought the flowers to life with some Peerless watercolors and die cut the edge with the Avery Elle Custom Panels die after it dried. I stamped the sentiment in Aquamarine pigment ink from Avery Elle and then clear heat embossed it for some shine. I tried to keep it simple today. Thank you for the visit today. I'll see you soon.

Hello there. It's challenge time again. This one is for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com/2014/12/december-28-january-3-designer-drafts.html. This card layout is so fun, I couldn't resist entering the challenge. Here's a look.
I went with a simple design for this card. I used the Blossoming Buds stamp set from Paper Smooches for the flowers and sentiment. I just did some Copic coloring for the flowers and black heat embossed the sentiment on some vellum. I kept this one clean and simple and stuck to the layout. That's it for now, thank you so much for visiting today. See you soon.

Hi there! It's time for another challenge. This little card is for the Lawnscaping Challenge #96, Christmas cards. I poured lots of Lawn Fawn into this little guy. Lets take a look.
I stamped and masked images from Critters in the Arctic and Winter Penguin and did a quick Copic coloring on them. I masked all the images and went over the card with Distress inks in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. After blending, I added splatter of water mixed with Ranger Perfect Pearls for some shine. I silver heat embossed the sentiment from Snow Day. I put some foam tape behind that little heart for some dimension and rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. That's it for now, thanks for the visit. I'll see you soon.

Hello there! I thought I would add another card entry for the Avery Elle AEIHeartUChallenge #19, http://aeiheartuchallenge.blogspot.com/inlaid die cuts. What a fun challenge! Here's a look.

Hi there! This is my very first time entering a project for an Avery Elle challenge. It's the AEIHeartUChallenge #19, Inlaid Die Cuts http://aeiheartuchallenge.blogspot.com/ I love this little card, let's hope they like it too. Here's a look.
I used the Avery Elle Party Animal stamp/die set. I used Studio Calico Clean Slate ink and 3rd generation stamped the balloon for a super light image. I went in with some Spectrum Noir markers to color and shade the balloons before die cutting them to inlay them into the white glitter cardstock. I used the tiny stars from the Avery Elle Finished Frames die set to do a silver star inlay into that white glitter cardstock. I silver heat embossed the sentiment from the AE Brushed stamp set onto some vellum. That's it for now, wish me luck. Thanks for visiting today, see you soon.
Hello hello! I'm so excited to share another card for the Lawn Fawn Lawnscaping Challenge #95, white on white monochromatic projects. Here's a look at my little shaker card.
I used some circle dies from Sizzix to cut the area for the ornaments. I used Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls stamp set for all of the stamped images. I die cut the sentiment from some glitter cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Scripty Joy die. Those teeny tiny vellum bows were cut using Avery Elle Finished Frames die set. Pretty simple, I just wish the card photographed a bit better. Thanks for checking out this little guy today. See you soon.
Hello there! I've been super busy with the holidays and haven't posted in a few weeks. Let's get back to it! This little card is for my first entry for the Lawn Fawn Lawnscaping Challenge #95, white on white monochromatic projects. Here's what I came up with.

Hello there! It's Day 4 at OCC Holiday Card Workshop. It's one layer card day. I tried my best for a one layer but it turned out to be a bit more. Here's my take on Jennifer McGuire's card.
Hi there! Here's another card from watercolor day at OCC Holiday Card Workshop. I messed up my last piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock so I had to resort to a piece of mixed media paper. The mixed media paper pad is from Bienfang, 40 sheets of 5.5 x 8.5 for less than $10 at Staples. The sheets are not as thick as the Tim Holtz paper but get the job done when you need it. Here's my take on Kristina's card.

Hello there. It's watercolor day in OCC Holiday Card Workshop. I only had 2 pieces of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock left so I didn't want to mess the whole card up by trying to recreate the woodgrain background. So, my little card looks a bit stark. Here's my simple take on Dawn's card.

Hello there! I just got some happy mail today so I thought I would make a quick card. Here it is.
Hello! I'm participating in another challenge. This time, it's for Paper Smooches. I don't think I have a chance of winning at all (there was a stamp designer with an entry) but I thought it would be fun to enter this little pretty bird anyway. Plus, don't we all love a little Paper Smooches? Here it is.
I used a free digi stamp from the Paper Smooches blog because I wanted to make something with a Halloween theme. I used Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire for the background. I stamped the clouds using the Spectrum stamp set from PS. I printed out the owl and gave her a quick coloring with Copics and masked her off so I could make it look like she was in front of the moon. I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink for the moon and Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners to die cut the circle. I used the Dots & Dashes dies from Paper Smooches for the strip down the middle of the inked panel. The patterned papers behind the sentiment are from Doodlebug. That's it for now, thanks for stopping by today. See you soon.
