Love. Love. Love.

Happy Freezing Friday here in the Midwest! buuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrr!

Let’s warm it up with some ❀ !

This is Paper Smooches new In Stitches stamp set! It is such a sweet set!

I stamped the LOVE in three different colors, and then die cut some Paper Smooches hearts. I inked those with the same ink pads I stamped with. After that, I finished off the hearts with a little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.Β 

I also used my scoring board to create an embossed frame around the words. Then I finished that panel off with some stitching.

I hope you all have a warm and cozy weekend ahead! Be sure to check out the Paper Smooches Blog HERE. I think I saw a giveaway? Wink wink πŸ˜‰

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

One in a Chameleon

Hooray for the weekend! πŸ™‚

Last night I had just enough time to get a quick card made. Monday is back to school here,Β  and it is going to get ugly round these parts! My son is going to be in extreme denial!Β  πŸ™‚ So I made him a card for his lunchbox, to soften the blow midday. It’s not going to work, but it can’t hurt. Haaaa!

My son has a chameleon and he loves apples, so I went with that! πŸ™‚

This little chameleon was a Lawn Fawn goodie offered around Thanksgiving. I obviously needed to grab one! πŸ™‚ I did not get the die however, so I just fussy cut him out. πŸ™‚

The background I used is from the fabulous Ellen Hutson set, Wonky Backdrops. Love that set.

Other supplies: Lawn Fawn Thanks a Bushel stamp and die, Lawn Fawn Jet Black (Copic friendly) Ink, Versafine Black,Β  Hero Arts Ombre ink pad, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, and a White Gel Pen.

I thought I’d enter this for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Fun with Food! I love to partake in challenges, as I think it’s great creative exercise! πŸ™‚ There is still over a week to join in the fun, so check it out! Lots of yummy cute to check out there! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend and STAY WARM!

Take care! Jill πŸ™‚

Awesome

The NEWΒ Paper SmoochesΒ JANUARY 2018 goodies released the other day! Whoohoooo! You can check out all the productsΒ HERE!

For my card below, I thought I’d mix it up by embossing the new Stitched Square die and filling in the dots with Copic Markers! I’m not sure this photo does it justice though. πŸ™‚

I think the winter light really got me that day, but in person, these are a bit more colorful! πŸ™‚I also used Paper Smooches Awesome die!Β  I doubled up the die cut and adhered it to my card. I finished this off with a little stitching. Voila! πŸ™‚

These new dies from Paper Smooches are sure to have endless possibilities! ❀️ them!! Such fun to use and create so many different things. Check them out HERE and see what the rest of the Design Team made with them–seriously, WOW!! πŸ™‚

Stay warm and Awesome! Happy Friday! Jill πŸ™‚

Love Stinks…

Happy 2018!! I hope you are ready to rock a fun year ahead! πŸ™‚

I’m popping in tonight to share a few cards I made with Technique Tuesday’s newly released, Love Stinks set. OK. I might enjoy this set a little too much, but come on, how stinkin’ fun is this!? πŸ™‚

Eeeeep! I cannot tell you how much this cracks me up! πŸ™‚

And then of course, I had to make two…for good measure and for practicing to color that cute little smiling pile! πŸ™‚

I also used some patterned paper!! Hey hey! Off to a good start here in 2018 using some stash! I’m hoping to widdle my PP even further so I can invest in some new pads by 2019? Hmmm. πŸ™‚

Along with those fun stamps, is this TP roll. I was cracking up when I saw it! πŸ™‚ That’s How I Roll. I die. πŸ™‚ ❀ it!

Some sparkle on these adds a little more interest in person. πŸ™‚

I kept all these cards very simple, using some Copic Markers, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, Confetti sequins, Nuvo dots and twine, before adding some finishing stitching with my sewing machine. I’m thinking my husband will get a laugh and I love sending some smiles in the mail! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year is a FABULOUS one! πŸ™‚

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚
