Take a Deep Breath

Happy Friday! I’m here to share a card using the NEWย Paper Smoochesย MAY 2017 release. For this card, I used the new Rose Frame Die and the new stamp set, New Beginnings 2!

This die: โค .

I die cut the whole Rose Frame die from several different colors of cardstock, and then pieced it all back together.

I just love how this makes such a clean card. This frame is awesome. When you receive this die, you just need to cut out the flower and boom, you have a frame die. Bonus! Get ready, because you are going to see this frame around these parts A LOT! ๐Ÿ™‚

I made another card with some of the scraps I had from the first:

Gah! These are so fun to make. I love die-cut inlay! It’s like putting a little crafty puzzle together. ๐Ÿ™‚ Afterward, I coated this in clear colorful Stickles. In person, it is a sparkly delight! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also used the new diecut, Mr. and Mrs. for this card. Kim makes the BEST handwritten dies! I love them ALL! This die can whip up a quick wedding/shower/anniversary card in no time! Not that I have ever made such cards with one foot out the door… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be sure you following the Paper Smooches blog everyday, as the rest of the team has made amazing things you don’t want to miss! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend!

New from Technique Tuesday!

It’s May!! WHOAH! Did that sneak up or what? I’m sure I say this every month, but maybe it’s that every month goes faster and faster now? Ha!

Well, get ready or not, because there are lots new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

There is a fun new owl in town. This is the Happy Day Owl set. So cute and succinct. ๐Ÿ™‚

I kept this one pretty simple, using the flower from the set as a pop of color! This guy is a happy new edition to all the little owl sets that can be found HERE.

Here is the new Flowers for Mom die (check it out HERE) . I think this flower is whimsy and fun!! I need to use it in a brighter fashion next! ๐Ÿ™‚ This one i colored quickly with Copic markers and then went back in with a bunch of little pixels. I feel like I missed a spot! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

This sentiment, from the Mom’s Day set, is fantastic because to me it is two-fold. Both that my Grannie IS the Greatest Grandmother, and that she is also the Greatest Grandmother to my son. โค See how that works there! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For this card, I also used my go-to fave, the Memo Pad Die. I use this one, A LOT!

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope your May is full of fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚
