Project Life and Paper Smooches

There's something a little different here today. The Paper Smooches Sparks challenge has a cool color combo to play with

I was also inspired by these colors for my recent Fly Away card. Using a new-to-me Paper Smooches set, I created three Project Life journal/filler cards. The sentiments are fitting for our Father's Day adventure page!

I played with a mix of VersaMagic chalk inks, Memento inks, and Hero Arts inks. HELP! QUESTION-- do you ever struggle with your Hero Arts ink looking 'bubbly' after you stamp with it? You can sort-of see in the upper left card, one of my flowers is quite uneven and bubbly. It really drives me nuts and any tips would be SO VERY MUCH appreciated! Thank you!!!

This page uses the Project Life 'Midnight Edition' cards. The photos are all from our Father's Day in the park with our baby Meeko :)

Hope you're enjoying a nice weekend! happy official summer!

  1. I love how you showcased the new PS stamps, Rachel!! What a delightful layout! Perfect use of photos and images! I rarely have issues with the "bubbles" from HA inks. I guess the way to prevent it is to tap the stamp lightly and turn it around to prevent the unevenness. Hope this helps!

  2. FABULOUS filler cards Rachel - just perfect :)

  3. Meeko is adorbs!!! awesome PL cards and perfect layered stamping!
