**** PLEASE GO HERE TO SEE MY SOG TAG # 2. ****
So, I've had my Paper Smooches stamps for a while now. I've mostly used the sentiments (which I LOVE!). I did use the Boob Tubes this one time. But aside from these, I haven't really played with the others. I think that means I need to slow down with my stamp purchases (ooops).
For my card today, I am playing along with their August Sparks Challenge:
Use this picture from Etsy for inspiration:
The photo definitely had a vintage feel. But I also wanted to try a clear and simple card this time. My goal is to be a 'jack of all trades.' I want to be able to make all sorts of cards - be it be vintage, cutesy, ecclectic, CAS, etc.
When I saw the wood grain on the picture, I knew which paper I wanted to use. Hambly! At first, my goal was to make a doghouse with this wood paper but it was just too hard and there weren't enough hours in the day for something that complicated. So I opted for the log to accompany these cute Chubby Chums.
I was also lucky enough to have the blue 'grain' so that became the river. I was inspired to do something with lace just like in the photo; hence, the lace-y cloud pattern in the sky. To finish it off, I adhered some pearls.

I'm also entering this card for Paper Smooches' September Guest DT call. Wish me luck!! :)
P.S. I got to make this card on G's first day back to work. My kids knew somehow not to give me that hard of a time. M slept till 10 (& still took a nap), and the baby wasn't as fussy. Aside from my feeling a little sleepy, it's been an ok day. *insert happy face here*
