Happy 4th Anniversary, Paper Smooches!
|Paper Smooches Blog|
Not only is Kim an amazingly talented artist, but her customer service is second to none! I'm actually waiting for a PS order to arrive... and I can hardly wait! But, thanks to Kim, I won't be waiting long.
In Operation Write Home world, the calendar reads Easter and Mother's Day, with upcoming deadlines of February 28 and March 31, respectively. So, I have a mom card to share today.
How appropriate that today's card features PS stamped images, along with Stampin' Up!, Ranger, Really Reasonable Ribbon, American Crafts, Bazzil, and Martha Stewart products.
|American Crafts peachy keen; Bazzil basics paper (cream); Stampin' Up! early espresso|
Paper Smooches crystal clear and botannicals 2 stamps
SU postcard background, postage collection, festival of trees, and 2000 wreath of roses stamps
SU postage stamp punch; Martha Stewart butterfly punch
various Distress Inks, including bundled sage and Victorian velvet
Really Reasonable Ribbon lace and stash heart-shaped gems
Zig chocolate writer-marker; Ranger distress and blending tools
adhesives: Scotch ATG and Glue Dots microdots
The postcard background stamp could probably be trimmed and sent as an actual postcard. However, I made this as a card for an OWH hero to send to a mom. So, I chose to trim down the card size just a tad and make it a traditional card to allow for more writing space.
Planning on entering the card above in the following challenges. Would also like to enter in the current Shopping Our Stash love challenge. But, even though butterflies, flowers, and hearts are my way of sending love to a mom, I just don't feel right linking it up there.
- Simon Says Stamp's current Wednesday blog challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.
- Simon Says Stamp's current Monday blog challenge is to make a card associated with the letter H. For my card, H stands for heart-shaped gems.
- The current Cards in Envy challenge asks for two or more hearts. Since there are 8 heart-shaped gems on this card, I'm really hoping this card counts. :)
- While the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog offers digital word-art-scripture sentiments, the team also encourages crafters to link up cards/projects with uplifting, positive messages. Again, I'm hoping this card counts for the current Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.
Gotta work on more mom cards. Hope to have another card or two to post in the next couple of days.
Feb. 1 - Feb. 21
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
