Curtain Call Smooch: Stay Positive

This is post #2 for this morning…click HERE for my Storie di timbri, carta e…
It’s time for a new  Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor,  Smooches, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Smooch!  A randomly selected participant in the Smooch challenge will be awarded their choice of a Paper Smooches stamp set, while the LEAD of the challenge will be invited as a guest designer for a future challenge!
I managed to combine 3 different Paper Smooches sets:
I heat embossed the floral image in white first.  I used my Peerless watercolors for the first time {Thanks Joan B!}  After everything dried, I masked off that portion of the card and then stamped/heat embossed the coffee cup.  

Full disclosure:  I managed to somehow smudge some of the paint on a portion of my card because of my messy fingers….let’s just say, I love enamel dots 🙂

  1. This is so pretty, Amy! Love the circular shape, soft design and your clever way of covering up your "oops". 🙂

  2. Good morning, Amy! Love this… if you could somehow make it water-proof, these would make gorgeous coasters, wouldn't they?

  3. AHA! ok, NOW i totally see how *I* could use enamel dots!!!!!!!!!!! definitely gonna need some of those now, for sure… tho in my case we may need to know the current PO weight limit on smudge-covering embellishments! not only do i *LOVE* how this looks… it's a brilliant use of technique AND a great combination of different stamp sets. MAGNIFIQUE!!!

  5. Gorgeous! love your card Amy. I had peerless watercolors about 10 years ago and never used them. Sold them in a garage sale 3 years ago and kick myself for it now.

  7. Fabulous, fabulous, and love how you managed to make it look like a work of art (not that your other projects aren't works of art, but…). This makes me think I should pull out some of those coasters I have somewhere… or use more of the letterpress papers…

  8. A gorgeous little card, Amy! As for the smudges – apparently they were meant to happen, because the placing of your dots is perfect! Sweet and charming!
