Somebunny Special

Happy Friday! I wanted to pop in quick and share the cutest little bunny tail! I thought this would be fantastic for Easter treats. πŸ™‚

I used the super fun Bunny Card Die from Paper Smooches! ❀️ these fun shaped dies!


I have all these Pom Poms laying around and thought, hmmmm… πŸ™‚


I was definitely snickering when I finished this! So cute with that tail! I ❀️ the sweet sentiment from PS’s Critter Card Puns heat embossed on the back.  

This is just a white lunch bag I ran through my machine with the PS Bunny Card Die. I then added the (cardstock) cutie bunny elements on. I plan to pop a few chocolate eggs on top, and make somebunny special smile! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!

Whale, Hello :)

I quite enjoy this happy little whale from Paper Smooches new Huge Hugs stamps and dies! This card was so fun to make and I really enjoy how it turned out. It makes me smile! πŸ™‚
Β 
This whale stamps awesome. I did use my MISTI to double up stamping, making it a deeper black (is that possible?). But it stamps solid straightaway. Always a bonus for us stampers. I used Distress Inks and blended them on this panel. Once in a *whAle*, I get a blend that makes me ooooh and ahhh! ❀
Plus, I ALWAYS enjoy Paper Smooches punny sentiments <3. They are THE best!! πŸ™‚

You will find all the new Paper Smooches productsΒ HERE. Next week we hop to share April’s release! It’s filled with smiles!

Thanks for stopping by today–have a great FRIDAY!

I did two posts using the Cat & Dog Card Dies HERE and HERE. Eeeek, they are fun!

Today, I’m using the new Paper Smooches Bear Frog Card Dies! I need to get these out again and make some more cuties soon!

I LOVE this little frog!! πŸ™‚
I was making these around Groundhog Day, and thought a Groundhog would be cute! But I ended up making a Beaver instead! πŸ™‚ My son will think this is a riot.Β  I love that dude. ❀I also used the new PS stamp set, Critter Card Puns for these sentiments. My head spins thinking of all the possibilities for these fun dies!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope your weekend is a great one!
Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

A Ear-y Twist & Dinos! :)

I thought I would use the new Paper Smooches Dog die in a different way too: Ears or mountains?! Haaaa!
jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs
I had this one in my head and had to get it out! I also used the Huge Hugs! Seriously, this Dino: ❀ ❀ ! I colored the Dino with Copic markers and gave him and his balancing hearts some dimension with foam tape. I used my white pen to snow cap the mountains.jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs_00
For this card, I also used bits from the following: Heart Frame Die, Feathered Friends Icon dies, and Snowdrifts dies.
Here are a few more Dino-mite cards to enjoy using the new Dinosaur Die! Once I started, I couldn’t stop using him/her! πŸ™‚
This one also uses the Tag Stitched die. This little guy is Wild! He is riding the Bicycle die πŸ™‚Also, the sentiment is from the new Huge Hugs 2 set. ❀ Paper Smooches sentiments! Of course, I had to make this little cutie a girl too! πŸ™‚ This is made with the Love Word 2 die, Heart Frame die, and the Dainty Flowers 2 die.
She is too cute!! Eeeep! I love the navy and pink together.

You will find all the new Paper Smooches productsΒ HERE. Β

Destination Chicago

Happy Thursday! Thought I’d pop in quick with the finished card I started for The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge! πŸ™‚

This is a great woodblock stamp of Chicago by Hero Arts. πŸ™‚ It is called Destination Chicago.

I used Distress Inks for these colors. I think I’m trying to combat the winter blues with rainbows lately πŸ˜‰ . I like the way it turned out in the end. And as I’ve said many a times, you just NEVER know with watercolors! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!
