Hey There Chickie: Paper Smooches

This little chickie from Paper Smooches' Spring Fling set is just so adorable. Reminds me of Chicken Little. I feel like it's taking forever for spring to get here so I keep making cards that cheer me up.

Just a fun little card to brighten your day.

Peony Love: Altenew

I made this card for a friend. She is attending a wedding and I thought this would be a cute card for that occasion. I love Corals and oranges! My favorite colors. This stamp set from Altenew is super dreamy. I used the stamp press that my hubby made for me. It's a diy MISTI. I still haven't lined it up perfectly. Beautiful no matter what though.

The background piece of paper was left over from some Distress Ink Smooshing I was doing. The cardboard die cut was left over from another project I worked on a few months ago. I used some SU white craft ink and the Jenni Bowlin teardrop stencil over it for some interest.

Hope you're having a fantastic day.

Happy Spring!

Oh, how I wish it was full into spring.
This is a lovely Paper Smooches set Happy Spring. 
I stamped the eggs in a more neutral color so that the watercoloring would shine.
Have a wonderful day!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week's Simon's Challenge is  A Bit O' Green
I stamped the shamrocks in various colors of green and masked as I went along. Very simple card that came together in a jiffy. I added sequins and beads and Liquid Pearls to the ephemera dotting the page. I hope you have a great Saint Paddy's Day.

Paper Smooches March Challenge

This month's challenge over at Paper Smooches was BIRTHDAYS!
I have a special friend who always cheers me up when I see her. We chat about our similar job experiences and comfort one another when stressed.
I thought the Chubby Chums set would be a perfect fit for our fun friendship. 
The paper is Basic Grey. I cut a window panel out of the card front, put a piece of acetate in the window and then popped it up with foam to create a shaker card.
Head on over to the Paper Smooches Blog to participate.

Stay Crafty!
