Sharing a card I made for the current monthly Paper Smooches challenge which is Men this time.

My card isn't very 'Manly', but definitely for the Guys. I've used the Paper Smooches stamp set called Party Pose, and colored the cute turtle with my Spectrum markers and fussy cut him out. I've also used the PS birch tree dies, and for the grass under them the foliage dies, just cutting the tops off the leaves.

I used some retired SU papers for the background, and stamped the 'dude' from the PS Word Salad set, trimmed to a banner and added some dots to continue the sentiment into the inside.

These sentiments are all in the Party Pose set, and I added a funny strip of balloon paper. Thank you for stopping by!

Pastel Card Set

Sharing a card set I made following the current Joy Clair challenge.


I went with the pastel colors, and used the Joy Clair stamp set called Hugs & Smiles. I stamped the corner flower image with ink matching the cardstock color. Then I went over it again with white ink, and stamped it a little off from the original image to give a bit of a shadow look. All the cards are made this way, and I stamped different sentiments on each.

A quick card set to make, and a perfect little gift. Thanks so much for your visit!

Happy Heart

Sharing a card I made for the current Your Next Stamp challenge following their sketch:

I've used the YNS stamp set called Happy Heart. I inked it with YNS Black Olive ink, and colored only the heart with my Spectrum markers. I die cut it out with YNS stitched circle dies, and backed it with my favorite YNS papers, Hugs & Kisses. The sentiment is from the same set, and I went with a brown ink, and punched the ends into a banner.

A sweet card for any occasion. Thanks so much for visiting!
