Who Loves You?

July 13, 2014

I've been a big fan of Paper Smooches stamps for a long time, and I love seeing what other people create with their stamps. The characters are always so cute and I admire Kim's handwritten whimsical fonts. But, I always hesitate to buy their stamps because... hmm... I feel that they are too whimsical for my usual style and I'm afraid that I'm not able to make them shine.

However, when I saw this month's PS release, I fell in LOVE with the Ghoulfriends set and the Halloween Icons Dies set instantly!!! The ghost in the Ghoulfriends set is too cute not to have!! The word die, BOO!, in the Halloween Icons Dies is the perfection!! As I received them along with a few more stamp sets and dies this week, I wanted to jump into them... but, I'm kind of a girl who saves the best for later. LOL! So I decided to play with another stamp set I purchased this time.;)

I played along with this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge (CTS #84). The stamp set I used is Hooties. I stamped the owls in Espresso ink (Versa Craft) and cut them out using Owl Icons Dies. Then I colored them with Copics. The leaves were cut out with scissors.

For the sentiment panel I stamped the Wood Plank Background (MFT) in Natural ink. Then I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark ink and white embossed it. The dashed line on the top edge of the panel was added using a die from Dots & Dashes Dies (love it!!), and I cut off the bottom edge with a pair of decorative scissors.
The background panel was stamped the Stars BG (Impression Obsession) in Cloud White ink (Versa Magic).

As I used a wood plank pattern stamp, I'm also entering this card to the Just Us Girls Challenge #249 which theme is Woodgrain.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
