Paper Smooches SPARKS October Picture Perfect Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Welcome to This week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge is a Picture Perfect Challenge based on the photo seen above (photo credit)!! I was Inspired by the Garland Idea and wanted to use some of the Newly Released Paper Smooches Products so I decided to create a Holiday Themed Greenery Garland with Hanging Candy Canes!! I just LOVE the way it tuned out!! I've used the New PS Holiday Cheer and Tis the Season Stamp Set along with the Wreath Builder, Holly, and Tis the Season Icons Dies!!

I Die Cut 11 Sets of the Wreath Builder Pieces and added Glitter to the Thinner Greenery Pieces and then Glued them on top of the Fuller Greenery Pieces!! I LOVE the look of them layered together and the contrast and detail that the Glitter adds!! Then I created the Garland Design!! I Die Cut 3 Sets of the Smallest Holly Leaves and Berries and then added them in along the Garland to fill it in!! I Stamped and Embossed the Candy Canes using Red Geranium Embossing Powder by Ranger and Wendy Vecchi!! I used the Coordinating Dies to Die Cut them out and then glued just the Tops Down to my Card Base under the Garland as to make it look like they were hanging down from under the Garland!!  I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment and my card was done!!
