Paper Smooches “LOVE” Die, and Weekly Challenges

This week I will add these finished cards into a few challenges that I have listed below the pictures with links to the challenge. I used the Paper Smooches wafer thin “LOVE” die that is AWESOME! It cuts the word and the outline, lending to many different card possibilities. I also added some shimmery seed beads to one and shiny confetti to the other. I love the clean and simple look to these cards. Below those is another card using the MFT “Adorable Elephants” that I still can’t get enough of. I colored them with distress inks with the no-line water-coloring technique.

Scene Card Tutorial feat. My Favorite Things “CoOl CaTS”

My Favorite Things has come out with so many adorable stamp sets in their last release. I can’t decide which are my favorite, so I may get them all… Just kidding, but take a look at another tutorial I have for you today, where we create a sweet”scene” card with the “Cool Cats” stamp set by MFT. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to make your own.


My Favorite Things “Adorable Elephants”

Today I had a chance to play with my favorite new stamp set! Just look at these precious elephants! This is one of those projects that just came together perfectly. I did a considerable amount of masking with no mishaps. I love this stamp set so much, I just had to use all the images. I colored them with Copic Markers and used my new die-namics die set “Stitched Speech Bubble”. I will definitely be making more cards with this set, so subscribe to my blog to see them.
