Paper Smooches GD Take Three


Hi there!  I'm back with two more cards as guest designer for Paper Smooches!  When I was a kid I loved those small, hard rubber, multi-coloured bouncy balls - the kind you would get out of machines in front of KMart and places like that.  The planet stamps from Space Cadet reminded me of those balls so I paired them up with some bright colours and the dotted lines from Santa Paws to show them bouncing around this birthday card.  The sentiment is made up of phrases and letters from Party Posse, Word Salad and Alphadot.


My second card is a shout out to my friends in England (like Jenny) who haven't seen the sun in ages and so can't hang out their washing!  I used the basket and detergent bottle from Squeaky Clean and the poles from Hang Ups.  The laundry is made from the tops of the cupcake, ice cream and lollipop from Sugar Rush.  Paper Smooches actually does have a 'Wishing you sunshine' sentiment but it's in the Eco Friendly set which I don't have so I made this one using Chit Chat, Word Salad and Alphadot.




Thanks for looking and be sure to check in to my last guest design post next week as I'll be having a little giveaway!  :)

as a kid? LOVED those balls. As a mom? Those things are the devil. Swear to pete. As a card, though, awesomesauce :)
Totally amazing idea to make the laundry heap, especially with the stamps you chose...craziness! I love how it turned out!

Jay Gee said...

Brillant Jen! Your cards are so clever - love them both :)

Ardyth said...

Love both of these, but the movement and bright colours on the first really caught my eye!

Joyce said...

Both of these cards are terrific. I have to say, the bouncing balls look more fun than that laundry, which looks suspiciously like what I've got waiting for me downstairs.

Lindsey said...

These are both so great! Love the first one, with the bright, fun colours and your inspiration to use the planets as bouncy balls. And the more earth-tone shades of the second card are perfect.

Maureen Morton said...

I saw these cuties over at the blog and already commented. Do you think that will keep me quiet? Ha! You are so darn creative - love the built-in giggles and the fun in each one. Always rockin', girlfriend!

Lynn said...

Jocelyn Olson said...

I feel like a total cad for not commenting on your PS cards sooner, but I keep admiring them in my reader. You are knocking the GDT out of the park, my friend. Awesome cards--they make me smile! :)

ADORABLE!! I especially love the first card and the memories it evokes as well. Those bouncing balls were just the bee's knees when we were kids, I guess. LOL the colors you chose are fantastic and this design gig is very well deserved so kudos to you, Jen!! Can't wait to see what else you do with these fabulous sets from Paper Smooches!
