Paper Smooches You’re a Good Egg

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all well ? 
I wanted to share a card I made today using the super cute stamp set from Paper Smooches called Wake Up I am a huge Paper Smooches fan, and this is possibly one of my favorite sets. 
I wanted to do a card that looked like pictures hanging on a wall….what do you think ? 
 How adorable is that little cockeral ? he made me smile so much colouring him. 
The set comes with a couple of faces that you can add to the elements, I went for a simple smiley for Mr. Egg there. They was coloured with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
I wasn’t going to add any embellishments to this card, but ended up adding some twine and enamel dots.
On Mr. Eggs “face” and Cockerals beak I added some Glossy Accents. 
I used some Stampin Up White Embossing Powder for the sentiment. 
I hope you like the card 🙂 I am entering this in the current challenge over at Paper Smooches Blog , the theme is 4 Colours- I have used Yellow, Red, Brown & Orange.

The Enamel Dots Are Doodlebug but I cannot find them online so I am guessing they are no longer for sale, same goes for the Embossing powder which is by Stampin Up. If I do manage to find them anywhere I will add the links 🙂 

I love you this much …Paper Smooches.

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all having a nice weekend with lots of crafting. 
It is cold and wet here…perfect weather to craft 🙂 
I wanted to share a card I made today using the fab Freezy Fellas Stamp Set from Paper Smooches. You may remember I used one of the fab little fellas on another card a couple of weeks ago….click here to check it out. 
I wanted to show that with this stamp set you really don’t need to add much, I have used the stamps to create backing paper and just added some dies. 
Anyway here it is…..

 As always I have coloured him with my Spectrum Noir Markers. The hearts in the background were stamped using Lawn Fawn Cranberry Ink and then I went over them with Red Berry Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. I also went over the mistletoe, the heart on sentiment and the snowmans Scarf & hat Band.
Here you can see that sparkle….well it isn’t Christmas without some sparkle is it.
I have listed all products used below, just click on the pictures to take you to the stores where you can purchase them. 
So as you can see a great card created with just a few products.

Morning lovelies. I hope everyone is well, I know a lot of you have snow at the moment so stay warm. 
I wanted to share with you a card i made using one of my favorite christmas stamp sets and my Spectrum Noir Aquas, and the new totaly amazing Spectrum Noir sparkle Pens. 
 How cute is he ? I have to say I have been trying to track the stamp set down here in the uk and had no luck, but my good friend Lis helped me and i now finally own it…so a huge thank you too Lis. 
I have coloured the little fella using my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens (colours & links at the bottom of this post). If you haven’t seen or used Spectrum Noir Aqua pens they are waterbased markers that have such vibrancy to them and are so easy to blend. 
I have also used the new Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens…which trust me you NEED. They are waterbased with tons of sparkle and come in either packs of 3 or two sets of 12. The 12 sets come in brilliant little hard plastic case which keep them nice and neat aswell as looking great. 
They come in lots of lovely colours as well as clear. And being waterbased you can blend them together and also using water. 
The background on this card was made by using watercolour cardstock, i then used the AquaMarine Sparkle pen from the Autumn-Winter 12 set, I then brushed over with a number 3 brush dipped in water to blend it out and soften the colour. 
This Picture shows the sparkle 
I have used the clear sparkle on the little bird house, Snowman and the snowhills. What I also love is that it isn’t “in your face” sparkle, it is just enough 🙂 
The “snow” on the birdhouse was done using Stamping up white embossing powder, I used the same embossing powder for the snowflakes(they are from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow)  and sentiment. 
I really had so much fun making this card and will be making some more in different colours to send to people. 
Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting
