BasicGrey Cards and Paper Smooches

I have a couple cards today that I made with BasicGrey's Konnichiwa collection. These papers really have some gorgeous patterns and colors. Most of the supplies actually came out of one of my Paper Made Bakery card kits. 

First off, I made this one using the 'Designer Draft' sketch over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog. I'm totally new to Paper Smooches stamps and don't own any yet, so I used one of their free digi stamps, and did some paper piecing with the blue and orange BG papers. The sentiment is a Pebbles rub-on.

My next card was based on a sketch right from the BasicGrey blog. I had a sort of happy accident with this one. I first stamped the "Love" character in brown Memento ink. But I felt like it didn't stand out enough after putting the whole card together. So I stamped over it again with black ink, and since the tag is popped up on the card I couldn't get a nice even image. But the black on top of the brown has kind of nice distressed effect - love it!  (By the way, that cute 'Love' stamp is from Sweet Stamp Shop.)
