Take a closer look at your stamps and be extra-creative if you feel inspired.  There are many hidden uses for the obvious.  Like making a toaster or heart monitor from of a TV.  It's so wonderful to see that you are all having a blast playing with our stamps!

I used the rectangle shapes from the Hang Ups sets.  The bigger rectangle is supposed to be a towel and the thin rectangle is a clothes line-light post.

The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler and the flowers are from our Friendly Flowers stamp set.

I colored the flowers with Copic markers.  Then I colored the clear Zva Creative crystals with the same marker.  Super easy card, but it makes an impact because of the graphic feel.

I created another Paper Smooches card that you can see on my personal blog today.  I created it for a special blog hop and give-away, sponsored by Paper Crafts magazine.  We are promoting the Card Creations Volume 9 issue.  It's seriously amazzzzzing!  AND our very first advertisement appears in this issue.  You can see it on page 161.

fyi -

  5. I love love this. I love the geometrical feel to this card. Love how you did not color in where the flower touched the shapes. I love the colors you used with the papers you chose Kim. Great inspiration. I'm saving up for one of your sets...hmmm...which will I choose?
