Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge!! =)

Pin It

I hope your weekend is going GREAT!!??
I'm stopping in to share the card I've made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect challenge!! I've used PS Borderlicious and Many Thanks Stamp Sets along with the CardbookingBalloons  and the Stitched Tag Dies for my card!! I was Inspired by the Colors, that BEAUTIFUL Paper Flower and the Washi Tape!! I thought it would be FUN to create a Similar Paper Flower on my card!! After looking through my Paper Smooches Dies I decided to use the Small Heart Die from the CardBooking Die Set and both the Medium Balloon and the Heart Balloon from the Paper Smooches Balloon Die Set!! I cover some cardstock with some Pink Silk Scrap Fabric that I had in my stash and die cut it using a shim through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine!! They all cut perfectly!! I then shaped my Flower and hopefully you can tell in the side photography that this Flower is 3-D and it sits up off of the Tag!! I then die cut a Paper Smooches Stitched Tag Die Cut for the Flower to sit on!! I added some Twine and Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment from the Paper Smooches Many Thanks Stamp Set in some Zing Charcoal Embossing Powder!! I used a Dove Grey WPlus9 Cardstock for my Card Front because I thought it went with the Lamp in the Picture!! =) I also decided it would be FUN to create my own Washi Tape by stamping onto some Prima Canvas Tape using the Paper Smooches Borderlicious Stamps!! I stamped them in Hero Arts Pastel Inks (Green, Pink and Blue) I LOVE how SOFT the colors are and how crisp the Images Stamped onto the Canvas Tape!! =) I then decided to add some Hero Arts Silver Shimmer Splatters and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in 4mm, 6mm, and 8mm sizes a few Prima Iridescent Gems finished off the centers of the larger sequins!!  I added Foam Tape to the back of the Front Card Panel and to the back of the Tag for some more dimension!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

I hope you'll stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT Blogs to see how they were inspired and that you'll join us!!  =)
