Wednesday Smooches

Happy Wednesday!

The week is NOT moving fast enough for me this week.  How about you?  Have you been getting crafty this week?  So far I have been and I am loving it.  I am working on some of my last projects for Cord Scrapbook Studio.  I am sad to see my DT term come to an end with Cord.  I have had such a good time. I also have been able to get in some card making time in.  I am really having a ball with my cards lately.

I was first introduced to Paper Smooches stamps by Jennifer Mcguire.  I was taking one of her classes and we were talking on a break about how much she loved these new stamps.  So I immediately went home to check them out.  Then a couple of months ago Cord Scrapbook Studio had me do a card set using their stamps and I instantly fell in love with them.  Paper Smooches also has a challenge blog called Sparks and it is so fun.  I have wanted to play along with them for the last month so I finally just jumped in.  This week's challenge is a color challenge.  To see all the details you can go here to see. 
Here is the color palette.  I just really loved the these colors!

My take on the color challenge.  For this card I got to play with a bunch of things!  I used some Basic Grey paper from the Picadilly collection and then layered it.  I used my Paper Trey Ink stamp for the background along with some Jenni Bowlin ink.  I then wrapped some yummy string from The Stringery around in the green and white.  I then used one of their free digi stamps for the image.  I just LOVE that little cupcake.  I colored it using my Spectrum Noir pens.  (I just bought them and I am really loving them!  I will give a review later on!)  I then stamped my sentiment using my Paper Smooches sentiment collection.  I really love how it turned out!
supplies
paper- basic grey
cardstock- neenah solar white
marker- spectrum noir
stamps- paper smooches, paper trey ink

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

This week is moving slowly for me too. I haven't had any crafty time though and won't for at least three weeks. I'm itching to get back to it.

Your card is so cute. I love that stamp.

I agree, Mary Pat. This week is moving entirely too slow. I haven't been doing much scrapping due to a kitchen remodel, but you sure have. Your cards have been awesome!
