What a hoot…

I am joining in at Papersmooches Sparks Challenge – a sketch challenge


I have made this card for a friend of Miss S (13) . The birthday girl likes owls and cupcakes. So I have used Papersmooches Geographic for the background stamped using Stampin UP! tempting turquoise onto American Crafts Powder cardstock which was mounted onto brown cardstock. The main images are from Papersmooches Chubby Chums and Hullabaloo coloured with alcohol markers and finished with glossy accents and clear wink of stella glitter brush. The sentiment panel was die cut using Die namics greeting frame and stamped in versafine onyx black ink with a sentiment from Papersmooches Digits stamp set. The ribbon threaded through the greeting is from my stash. Got the approval of Miss S – and she kept an eye on the progress!

Enjoy what is left of your weekend





Happy Monday.

We have a few birthdays coming up.  Think this will be handy to have in my card stash.


I have used Papersmooches Geo-Graphic stamped using PTI Dark Chocolate and SU Sahara Sand cut into a banner with some scraps from my stash. I stamped the sentiment from Papersmooches Birthday Sampler and then stamped the balloons from Papersmooches Hullabaloo using SU Rose Red and Daffodil Delight. I then added some glossy accents to the balloons. This mornings sun made them shine in the picture.

Jay Gees Nook Challenge JGNC22

This is a challenge over at http://jgsnook.blogspot.com.au/ and I thought I would play along.

I have taken my inspiration from the chevron stripes, floral prints and the texture of the folded fabrics.

I stamped the Chevron stripes from Papersmooches Geo graphic using SU Pumpkin pie ink. I added this to AC sixth avenue cardstock. I die cut a leaf from CC Designs leafy branch using scrap cardstock and a flower from PTI Aqua Mist felt using PTI Beautiful Blooms die. I placed a button from AnnaBelle Stamps in the centre with household twine. I also stamped the sentiment from PTI Mega Mixed Messages in versa fine onyx black. Handy to have a thank you card ready to go don’t you think?

Thanks for dropping by. I have another post a bit later.
