My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #248

Happy Hump Day, all! =) There is a new sketch up over at MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! First is the sketch.


Here is my take on it.


Let's embrace the imperfection! =)


All the images are from the super fun London Mouse set. They are stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink on watercolor paper, colored with watercolor then fussy cut out. There is also a matching die set for this stamp set if you are not a fussy cutter.


The sentiment is from the Label Maker Sentiments set.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this week's sketch and see all the challenge details over at MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

Wreath Builder

Hello, my friends! =) Hope your week is off to a great start! Here is a card that I made using some fun stamp and dies from Paper Smooches.


Instead of making a wreath, I watercolored the leaves/bough and used them more like background elements.


I also added some watercolor swooshes under the thinner boughs and a few extra dots to add more interest. The sentiment is from the Holiday Cheer set also from the October release.

That's all for now. All the new stamps and dies will be available starting September 30th at 8pm Pacific Time. For more inspirations using stamps and dies from Paper Smooches, please visit Paper Smooches Blog! =)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



Hi ya, all! I am playing along with Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today! =)


Any day that I can use some of my beloved Japanese washi tapes on my cards is a good day especially the coffee themed ones! =)


The image that I used is from Mo's Digital Pencil and it's called Coffee. She is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers and die cut using a Hexalongs die from Paper Smooches.


I adhered the washi tapes on cardstock to create the "patterned paper" and cut them out using the Hexalongs dies. The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's For the Love of Latte set.

That's all I have. Don't forget to check out how to win some awesome goodies and how you can join this fun hop over at Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Page! =)
