Not Just One but Three


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.
Photobucket

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.
