Hello! Hope everyone is enjoying the festive season. I’ve been so happy to have time with the family and away from work, and managed to do some re-organising of my craft space that has me all inspired. Today I had a play and decided to do a card for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge:
I just love the arrows in the new Love-Struck set. I cut out a bunch using the coordinating Love Struck Icons dies a week or so ago and had them ready to go. They’re the perfect size for dressing up tags and so I thought I’d make a stamped tag the focus of this card. It’s adhered using removable adhesive so the recipient can keep it and use it as a bookmark. I used a dash-line heart from the Sweet Hearts set to create a subtle background on the lighter pink background card piece on the left. The “xoxoxo” greeting is also from the Sweet Hearts set and I stamped it on some notepaper card for the sentiment. Did you know Paper Smooches is having a sale? What better time to stock up on some new stamping goodies, right?!
And here are some other tags I made while doing this card that were super quick and easy. I’ve just started using Memento Luxe inks so wanted to try them out on some Kraft card stock. The colours stayed quite nice and rich and didn’t take too long to dry. Long enough that you could easily emboss with them though which is great! I found that gently tapping the stamp on the surface of the pad gets me the best results. They’re a nice alternative to dye inks on coloured card stock.
