For me, it’s just a regular Sunday, but if you’re a mom, happy mother’s day to you! I’ll be calling my mom today…we sent her a box of strawberries, which arrived yesterday, and a special surprise inside of a handmade card (which unfortunately won’t show up until Monday).
Meanwhile, I’m stopping in today to share the card I made for the “Trend Watch” challenge at the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog.
This week’s theme is some nautical photo inspiration (I’ll include the photo below my card), and I combined a few sets of Paper Smooches stamps to make this:
|Paper Smooches stamp sets: (“Woofers & Tweeters“, “Alphadot“, “Sentiment Sampler“)
Other supplies: chevron paper (“PB&J” 6×6 pad – Basic Grey), woodgrain paper (My Mind’s Eye), polka dot paper (Bo Bunny), cardstock, opaque white marker, ink (Memento Tuxedo Black, Nautical Blue; VersaMark), Copic multiliner, assorted Copic markers, white embossing powder.
I drew the striped shirt, bandanna and eye patch on the dog to fit the theme. Here’s the challenge photo that inspired this card:
|Supplies: digital stamp (“Valentine’s Little Boy” – Whimsy & Stars Studio), patterned paper (“Devoted” mini pad – Carta Bella), sentiment stamp (“Daily Designs” set – PaperTrey Ink), metal die (“Whatnots Seasons Set One” – Your Next Stamp), watermark ink, white embossing powder, white marker, sewing machine, Copic markers.|
My second card is for Deconstructed Sketch #86. There’s no time limit for submitting a card based on this sketch, so I wanted to make sure that I posted it! You might recognize some of the papers from my first card…I love that paper pad!
This card features another digi stamp from Whimsy & Stars Studio. I am so happy that I design for Mabelle’s company…I love coloring her images!
|Supplies: digital stamp (“Valentine Bear” – Whimsy & Stars Studio), patterned paper (“Devoted” mini pad – Carta Bella; “Dots and Stripes – Homefront” – Echo Park), sentiment stamp (“Daily Designs” set – PaperTrey Ink), metal dies (Spellbinders circles, classic and scalloped hearts), watermark ink, white embossing powder, white marker, sewing machine, Copic markers, Liquid Applique, heat embossing tool, foam tape, Stickles.|

My third card is for the “Trend Watch” challenge at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog. The inspiration for this challenge is a picture of a polka-dot purse:
