My First Paper Smooches Stamps Arrived

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

My first order of Paper Smooches stamps arrived yesterday and I was so delighted. This order included the stamps I purchased with my $30.00 Voucher so generously given for winning one of their challenges. My daughter who is eight just delighted in the stamps and thinks they are the coolest stamps that she could imagine.
So with my new stamps I was very keen to use them and made a card for the challenge this week. Here is the challenge photo............the challenge is called Picture Perfect

 Gorgeous photo.....................Here is my card inspired by the above

Scrapbook boutique challenge

This months challenge was exactly that for me :) I immediately saw Halloween paper and stamps in need but being relatively new to card making my stash of goodies is limited and not a Halloween stamp or paper in sight. So I ended up being inspired by the colours. Here is the inspiration photo for this month :)

My first attempt at a more Vintage type look

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

I really enjoyed making this was a challenge as when I first started out I had a vision of it being full of florals and scrolls and bling but I kept changing it around (I am not great with the flower arranging :) )eventually I decided a little less. The only thing I wish is that the stitching on the card was a little more standout but otherwise happy with it.

Paper Smooches

Thursday, October 3, 2013

I have just discovered another stamp company that I think I will not be able to live (stamp) without :). Paper smooches have the most gorgeous stamps so whimsical and fun and the fonts are amazing. I will order in a few weeks but will then have to wait for them to reach me in Australia which is about another three weeks so thought I would download one of the free digi stamps they have made available and play with it. Thanks Paper Smooches your stamps rock!!!!!!
Here is my card
