Happy Anniversary, Paper Smooches!

Hello, and Happy Monday!!

I set this post up LAST Monday...good grief!  Any who, I am excited to celebrate the Paper Smooches 4th Anniversary!  I was unfamiliar with this company, but then I won a gift certificate last fall from Hope You Can Cling To over at Splitcoaststampers.  I bought some goodies for Christmas, and I am having FUN with them!  I wanted to have 2 cards tonight, but I have to wait for some background paper to dry.  So, just one card in this post.  I have made other cards featuring Paper Smooches that you can see HERE, HERE, and HERE.

My card is for the ColourQ challenge, along with the 2nd VSN Mini challenge, which was to incorporate a critter from the children's program "Little Bear."  I chose a cat.  I rarely put pink and orange together, so this color challenge was initially tough for me.  But I figured the pumpkin pie would work well for this cute kitty!

My card base is pretty in pink.  I added a layer of whisper white with 2 strips of what looks like pattern paper.  But they are actually stickers from a scrap book kit that was a part of Sale-a-Bration several years ago!  Use that stash!!  My image panel includes this cat from Paper Smooches "Chubby Chums."  I colored her with my pumpkin pie and creamy caramel markers, and a touch of pretty in pink for her nose.  The sentiment is from the same set and I simply swooshed my melon mambo marker underneath, then layered it all on real red pattern paper.  The enamel hearts are from Anna Marie, and were purchased online at a scrapbook site.  My final touch is the melon mambo organza ribbon from SU.

I am seriously in love with these Chubby Chums!  If my other card dries on time, you will see an edited version of this post with another critter!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Kim, your card is so adorable! So fun and playful!

  3. I need to add some Paper Smooches to my collection! This Chubby Chum Cat is adorable, Kim! What a sweet, sweet valentine!
