Paper Smooches July Challenge-Anything Goes!

I think my favorite type of challenge is the “Anything Goes!” Thank you Paper Smooches!

I’m still limited by my tiny inventory of PS products,  but I think my card making skills are improving, so they look different lol. This month I used my rainbow die, and the cloud dies. I also snuck in one of the Hero Arts clouds, as I needed the bigger size.


I used the original Distress Inks to blend the rainbow and MFT Silver Sparkle paper for the “Thanks” die, and layered it with 2 layers of white card stock. The clouds were cut from Neenah Metallic White Silver card stock. Everything was adhered with foam tape, except the “Thanks” die.  I finished it off with Lucy’s Cards Shimmering Pool Jewels. 

I spent my last few crafting sessions prepping items (coloring, stamping and die cutting tons of images) and not making cards. It was fun to finally make a card again!

I’m trying something new, making images ahead of time so that I have them handy for cards. Usually I decide  what I’m going to make, then stamp and die cut. Or if I’m stuck, coloring my favorite images. I stamped almost everything I have (with the exception of my favorites, so I’d use something different). It did beat up my arm and wrist, but I think it’s worth it. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend!
