Perfect Paper Crafting and Simple Stories Blog Hop…



WELCOME to Day One of our Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Simple Stories.  I’m starting the week long hop here on my blog.  The other PPC and SS gals will have a post on another day of the week.  Check in on the Perfect Paper Crafting Blog each day, April 7 – 12,  for what two blogs to visit!

Prizes!!! * A set of Perfect Paper Crafting Rulers and a Simple Stories Paper Collection! Comment on the blog posts all week for a chance to win!

My first card today, I colored the cut from the Joyful Bouquet die by Memory Box with Copic Sketch markers. Then I colored the flower centers and some of the stems with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush marker.  (forgot to take a close up to see the sparkle)  I kept the negative/waste part and pieced it back in like I did on this card, in this post HERE

I trimmed it down, matted it with black card-stock and the Perfect Layers Mini Rulers ⅛ inch ruler and layered it on SS Lookin’ Good card-stock trimmed down to an A6 size card. I also used one of the label stickers and the circle heart chipboard sticker from the DIY Boutique Collection.

Stampin’ for the Weekend 
wants to see Spring Colors







Enjoy! it’s a beautiful day!  On this card I used the Perfect Layers Mini Rulers ⅛ inch ruler to mat SS Newspaper card-stock to white card-stock and then to an A2 size kraft card base.   I colored the SS enjoy sticker with Copic Sketch markers to get a closer match to the card-stock I used for the leaves in the die cuts. The sentiment is cut from the SS Who’s To Say card-stock and layered to one of the pieces from the SS Card Foundations pack.   I used the Memory Box Sophia Bloom dies to cut and layer up the flower border.



“Let’s Do This”… what a cute sticker.  We like to ride bikes and take pictures… so it was fun to make a card with the SS bike, flower and butterfly chipboard stickers and poppystamps Cinema Film Strip die.  I added the SS heart talk bubble sticker and a couple more behind the film strip.  I used the Perfect Layers Mini Rulers ⅛ inch ruler to mat SS Chevron card-stock (the back side) to white card-stock, then to SS Polka card-stock and then to a 5 ½ inch square white card base.



“You Are My Anchor”, I cut the sentiment from the SS Who’s To Say card-stock.  SS Anchor chipboard, some twine, a SS circle heart chipboard sticker and Memory Box Big Splash Border die at the bottom. This card uses the back side of the SS Outside the Box card-stock sheet and a narrow strip from the SS Herringbone sheet.



A cute “just a note” SS typewriter chipboard, some super sweet heart chipboard circles, a card foundation (I added the white stitching lines), a frame from the Freeze Frame sheet matted with the 1/16th in Perfect Mini Layers Rulera couple sticker labels and this and that word stickers.  A2 size card.



The last one!  hehe  A 4 ½ in. square card with the cute little SS Chipboard telephone sticker and word stickers.  The frame is from the SS Freeze Frame sheet, I used the 1/16th in. Perfect Mini Layers Ruler to mat it and layer it on a SS Polka square of card-stock.  I used one of the blooms from the Memory Box Sophia Bloom set in the corner.


No stamps!!! eek!  can you believe it!  I missed them while creating these though.  Paper is fun but I love my stamps!  At least I worked in some dies.  Simple Stories pattern paper, stickers and chipboard make cute and fun cards though and it was challenging for me to use pattern paper again!  I love a challenge! : )

So happy to promote Perfect Paper Crafting!  I LOVE my Perfect Layers Rulers and Mini Rulers.  The mat is awesome too!  Smooth and easy cutting every time! Be sure to use my code, Sparks5%, when you shop the PPC store.
