Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge – December 2013

By Taheerah | 8th December 2013 | 6 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!!

Today I’m sharing a card for my first ever Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge as a DT member – woo hoo!!

Today’s challenge is a Picture Perfect challenge, meaning we’re working from a beautiful inspiration photo to SPARK that creativity. Here is this month’s inspiration image:

 Gorgeous, right?!

Here’s what my take yielded:

I really love how this turned out!!

I started by stamping the bauble from Warm Hearts repeatedly using red and silver inks. I flipped the stamp upside down and used the back of it for one of them, and the same with one of the other stamps in the set! I also stamped the ‘JOY’ sentiment several times – watch those Rules of Three!!

I drew the streamers by hand then flicked on some mists and added some sequins to complete the look!

So I reckon you will be feeling inspired enough already from that gorgeous image, but you really should check out the rest of our Design Team today to see the amazing eye candy they’ve come up with today:


Wanna play along? You really should!! All you need to do is create an entry based on the inspiration image and using Paper Smooches stamps/dies and link it up on the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog you’re in! The challenge runs until 11:59pm PST on Saturday 14th December so you’ve got a little time to play along!! We can’t wait to see what you create!!

That’s it from me for today, but I would love it if you would leave some love before you went on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!
