Paper Smooches Miss You card

Hello everyone,

Yay it's Friday and the start of another lovely weekend. I have a busy one planned with friends coming for dinner tomorrow and then on Sunday, my sons are coming to move furniture and take up carpet, ready for us having the hall, stairs and landing decorated next week. Do you find that the smell of paint gives you headaches? It always does for me, so this is a job that has been put off too long and I'll be glad when it is finished.

I wanted to play along again with the Paper Smooches anything goes challenge


I am new to Paper Smooches stamps and only have a few sets, but I love the quality and how well they stamp.

I came up with this card



I cut a panel with a MFT window die and used it upside down for a change. I took the little dotted heart from the Lawn Fawn Bee Mine set and stamped a row of them across the panel. I added some little hearts on the centres and put glossy accents over them to give some shine. I then stamped the Miss You sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler, and added a little tab with a sentiment embossed in white to extend the thought. I cut a border strip with a Lawn Fawn die and stitched it to the card using a PTI Stitching die and white crochet thread. The stitching die produced lots of tiny waste dots that I couldn't put in the bin, so I dotted them around the panel to add some texture.

I used lots of little snippets on this card, so I'm going over to play at Pixie's Snippets Playground, and I'd also like to play for the first time over at the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge which is make the sentiment a focal point.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Hugs

  7. Super card Carol - I love the fresh colours and those stitched hearts are adorable! I think I have that same stamp (as yet uninked) here too! And I'd have never thought of using the MFT die upside down, great idea!

  8. Forgot to say, your link is sorted out now! When Mr Linky's box pops up for you to link, just overwrite the old link with the latest URL. He has the memory of an elephant, sigh! But I can always fix things so just let me know if you have any problems.

  9. You've made an awesome card with your snippets, Carol!! I hope the redecorating goes smoothly and quickly ... and yes, it does sometimes give me headaches, so I know what you mean. It will be all worth it! Hugs, Darnell
