Paper Smooches Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone! I'm so excited for this weekend! There's a community festival by my neighborhood, and I can't wait to check out all the arts and crafts booths! Do you have anything fun going on?!

To kick start our weekend, I have some ADORABLE Paper Smooches inspiration cards with some of the new stamps!

Shilo created the first and second cards below, aren't they just so shabby chic?! I love how perfectly the embellishments and papers work together! She used the Pip Squeaks Paper Smooches set for the first card, and then the Green Acres Paper Smooches set for the second! The sentiment could not be more fitting for that card (and it's included also in the set!)!

 


Teri created this card using one of my personal favorite stamps set from Paper Smooches- Qwick Qwips!
Besides the fact these colors are incredible together, I love how the stamps fit into each other!
Here's another example of how some of the words work. Each sentiment or abbreviation in the set fit onto the tag stamp that's included, either vertically or horizontally! So perfect!

Next up, we have a lovely interpretation of this interior design into a card by Emily Keaton!

Emily mentions how she left blank space in honor of the blank wall in the photo- and I think it definitely does the card justice! She used the Wake Up Paper Smooches set, and it's awesome how the toast shooting out of the toaster gives such a vertical effect.

Stamp sets from above, and some ingredients to recreate these cards:

  33. Great cards! Funny you should say you are going to a festival this weekend. My hubby is a photographer and exhibits at art festivals and this weekend he will be at a show not far from home. (Yeah for local shows!) I will be helping him take down from the show on Sunday, but that isn't my fun thing. My Mom's church is having a 'salad bar' luncheon and silent auction on Saturday and I'll be going to that. It's always fun to see all the cool things up for auction and maybe bid on some of them.

  41. Some fun plans for this week-end? Well that´ll be that we´re celebrating the midsummer here tomorrow night, and every year it´s celebrated with a huge bonfire, where we place a witch on top of the fire and send her to Bloksbjerg. It´s a very old Scandinavian tradition, that we´ve been following always and now my kids and grandkids are all comming here for this every single year on June 23rd. Last week-end I made the huge witch together with 4 of my grandkids. You can see some pics of it here if you like: http://maryannla.multiply.com/photos/album/452/Our-busy-week-end-here.
    We´re definitely going to have an awesome week-end, and I hope everybody else will too.
