July Sparks Challenge....Paper Smooches

I love Kim Hughes's stamps.....Paper Smooches stamps are just the cutest and her fonts are fabulous.....I wish I had more of them.  I still only own one set (hoping to change that soon) of the orginal sets, Falling for You.

 Kim has started a monthly challenge, Papersmooches Sparks Challenge, and it was just what I needed to motivate me to use these fabby stamps. I had time to whip up three different cards using 2 of the different sketches. How cool is it that Kim offers up great sketches and color combos each month....such a nice perk!
I couldn't resist playing along. Look how great these sketches are.

First up is my monster love card. I used one of my fave color combos along with one of my all time FAVE paper lines....Oct. Afternoon-Fly a Kite.  If you click on the picture, you'll get a close up of the detail.  The kraft layer is actually embossed with one of PTI impression plates-linen and the subtle texture it adds to any project.

stay tuned.....two more cards in seperate blog posts coming up!


  1. OHHHHHH! I just love this--love the colors and that sweet little monster! I wish I had your eye for creativity! LOVE:)

  2. I love this so much, that monster is adorable in polka dots, heehee! Those sketches look great, def saving them to work on.

  3. Super cute, love the mixes of papers!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
