Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge – December 2013

By Taheerah | 15th December 2013 | 4 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!!

Today I’m sharing a card for the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge – woo!!

Today’s challenge is an Anything Goes challenge, which is as the name suggests – use any Paper Smooches stamps and/or dies in your creation!

I decided to pull out one of my new sets, and one that I’ve been wanting to play with for ages – Swanky Snowdudes! Here’s what I came up with:

I really love how this turned out!!

I started by flicking on some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine mists in Mustard, Blush, and Bronzer to add some pops of colour to my Pure White card base. I then adheres a strip of patterned paper from the Studio Calico Printshop Collection, adding some strips of washi tape for interest.

I used the same paper collection when stamping my snowman from Swanky Snowdudes using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I coloured parts of the image with Distress Markers before trimming him out, adding a coating of Distress Glitter in Rock Candy, then adhering to my base using Pinflair Glue Gel. I stamped some of the snowflakes from the set using Distress Ink in Broken China before adding the sentiment using Versafine.

Love this fun and unconventional colour scheme!

Because this challenge is an Anything Goes one, you really need to check out the rest of our Design Team today to see the amazing eye candy they’ve come up with:


Wanna play along? You really should!! All you need to do is create an entry using *any* Paper Smooches stamps/dies and link it up on the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog and you’re in! The challenge runs until 11:59pm PST on Saturday 21st December so you’ve got a little time to play along!!
