A Dashing Smooch...


So glad you have joined me for this weeks 10 Minute Craft Dash - with a FAB gift voucher from Paper Smooches this week, even more reason to give it a try!
This week I had a cardstock base just about ready to go, with this gorgeous chocolate hearts paper by Bo Bunny left over from my mad rush of Valentine's cards.  I tried stamping for the first time using Hero Arts Cup O' Joe - and loved it, stamped three in a row on cardstock and two patterned papers (inking between stamps) and they all stamped perfectly - I was very impressed!  Fussy cut mum and baby elephant, cutting straight from mums trunk to her foot, and gluing baby elephant on top to save time.  Even with gingham checks to align my cardstock I went slightly off course - oops, just pretend you didn't notice LOL.  Wrapped the twine around my card and half knotted before threading through my button and tying in a bow - perfect for this weeks Paper Players CAS Buttons & Bows for Baby Challenge.  Rounded the bottom corners as a last second finishing touch.  Phew - 9 minutes 48 seconds, just in time!

Check out the rest of the 10 Minute Craft Dash Design Teams fab creations, and some super cards from Paper Smooches Designers too.  Hope you are inspired to join in!
Remember you can pull out your supplies before it starts, even have a sketch in mind, 
and if you don't quite make the 10 minutes you can still post your creation 
(but you won't be eligible for the prize).
P.S. As luck would have it this weeks colours are sooo close to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge that Kim has encouraged participants to link up for both Challenges :)

  2. This is SO not a challenge that I could ever participate in. I cannot believe you could even pick stamps papers let alone stamp and fussy cut in that amount of time!! It's charming!
