It's Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamps Challenge and the team are all showcasing Paper Smooches. Now I'll be honest they're not my type of stamps but once I started to use them well the ideas kept popping in my head.
So I had two sets Chubby Chums and Eco Friendly. My first card had to be the Owl I do have thing about them. I used some Doodlbug papers to paper piece him, he had to have a branch to sit on which is Memory Box leafy branch. The background is made sponging ink, using an old template that I have and to finish a paper pieced sun.
The Eco Friendly set has lots of weather stamps and I decided to make this patchwork card. The raindrops have been made shining with glossy accents and the sun and lighting have been glitterized. I stamped the snowflakes in versarmark and embossed with clear what I should of done was embossing with white powder to make them stand out so I was disappointed with my technique and used cuttlbug snowflake die instead.
My last card I had to use the Chick and I decided he need an egg to hatch from which is using an oval nestabilities and used a crackle stamp again something that I had for years to make the cracks on the egg. Then I used a My Minds Eye paper that looks like wood and added a raffia bow. So you can see I really enjoyed playing with the stamps.
Remember you don't have to have Paper Smooches stamps to join our Anything Goes Challenge.
