Great Joy

Hello, hello!

It's good to blog again, after being away for a week.  I know, I had posts scheduled, but now I feel like I am getting myself dug out of vacation mode, and back at the craft table, blogging and such, again.  Sometimes routine can be my best friend.  So, today, I wanted to share a little card I created using this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, the July Designer Draft.  Hard to believe July is coming to an end...

I used Paper Smooches stamps that can be found in the i {heart} papers store, as well as Distress Inks, and Washi Tape.  I have it on good authority that Kate is going to be stocking some pretty fabulous goodies when her move is completed.  I can't wait!  Until then, I will play with all of the fun products I already have!

So, to begin, I took watercolor paper and wet it with water and a brush, adding my color, and allowing it to blend.  I then let it dry, added Tape to the edge, and stamped a bunch of floral images from the Calico set all over it.  

I took a white notecard, adhered a strip of black cardstock, and stamped a sentiment from the Group Hugs set, which isn't available in the store currently, however, there are many others including the Chit Chat set, which I think would have worked just as well.  After that, I popped up my panel at an angle using foam adhesive.  Super simple!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!


  1. Such an awesome card...I love your use of neon. I'm posting my PS card on saturday and it uses neons too!

  2. Great design! Love the black images against the bright watercolored background and the look of the watercolored panel against the black and white of the cardfront. Thanks for joining us at Paper Smooches SPARKS!

  3. I tried an embarrassing amount of times to use that sketch and just could not. Your card came out so super awesome!!
