A pile of smooches

I love the Paper Smooches chubby chums. I identify very strongly with the little chickie in the set for some reason. I love those little eyelashes and the way she looks so cheerful. When I saw this week's CAS(E) this sketch, I immediately saw a stack of chubby chums on top of each other. Actually that's not strictly speaking true. First I saw a design that involved Christmas ornaments in metallic colours, but after banging my head agains the wall for a few hours and enriching my bin with a pile of Christmas ornaments in metallic colours, it transformed from Christmas ornaments to chubby cute animals. I decided to go a bit out of my usual colour range and use the colours over at Colour Throwdown as I haven't participated in that challenge for a few weeks. I'm also entering the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge where anything goes this week.

The card was rather simple to put together, it's all in one layer and I used a mask when I stamped the next chum in the stack. I coloured the chums using Copics and used Tim Holtz distress markers to ink up the sentiment. I then used Versamark to stamp the heart from Joy to the Woods and the XO from the Chubby chums set on the orange border. Last, I stamped the owl and another greeting inside the card using Versamark.

Card: Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie, Hobbycraft 160 gsm white card
