Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge

Hello!!! Where is time going, right? I cannot believe it is December 15th! One more week here in Zurich and then off on vacation to see my in-laws for the holidays. A change will be good, but can’t believe it is coming so soon!

Anyway, on to the business at hand! It is time for another challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge site – and this week is easy – Anything Goes. This is perfect in the run up to Christmas as I’m sure you are busy finishing up those last holiday cards & tags.


I decided to do a non-holiday card this week. I got a little technical with the die cutting on this one – tried to do an inlay effect in a rainbow of cardstock. I love the result, but it did take me a long time! I have always respected the die cutting genius of crafters like JJ Bolton & Laura Bassen – I have a whole new level of respect now! I also love all the cool angles everyone is doing on card fronts lately – makes such a big impact!


I covered the die cut letters & the stamped heart with Glossy Accents – I love the extra oomph you can achieve from something as simple as a clear gloss.  On this card I used the Get Well die cut and the heart stamp is from Vegtastic. A little Bella Blvd washi tape finished everything off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today – have a great weekend and make sure to check out all the amazing DT creations & play along!
