November Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s November Release Countdown! Today I get to share this VERY cool die!

I am sharing a card I made withe the soon to be released Sweater Weather Crafting Die. I am looking forward to using this die on all the things this winter! 🙂 This great sentiment is from the new Hello Winter Stamp Set. (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, November 1st)

I die cut this die four times on this card panel and then popped out one row to make them red vs. white. I adhered everything down well, and then attached it all on an aqua note card. A favorite color combo for Winter. ❤  This card is so cozy!

Technique Tuesday: Day 1 of the November Release Countdown

Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new November release! Hooray! 🙂

Today I am sharing a cute one: Dani Deer with coordinating dies, colored with Copic Markers. I cannot handle the fun puns! They are DEERling!  See what I did there? Wink wink. 🙂 (Links will work on November 1st, release day.)

I mean, a pink deer? Why not?! 🙂 I added some Black and White paper strips, scoring and some stitching to finish this one off simply.

Happy Thoughts

Hooray for Friday! I’m here today sharing this Paper Smooches card that is smothered in Fall! Fall is my favorite! I love the start of fall the best, and then when all the colors start falling off and become mucky wet piles, I am sad to see it go. I’ve tried to capture them here! 🙂

I die cut the leaves several times from different colored cardstocks. I also die cut the waves and stamped the sentiment in black. Then I adhered the Wavy Wishes down, before I added the leaves and stitching to finish this card off.

Don’t forget the Paper Smooches Blog is full of inspiration all week long!

Thank you for stopping by–have a wonderful weekend!

The Best Ever!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve have had this little Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple and die for so long and finally got around to stamping them! 🙂

Adorable! I colored them with Copics, die cut them out and then stamped the sentiment from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments after scoring the card base under the circle. To finish this off, I added some stitching, some Stickles and a little hemp twine. 🙂

Gah, I can’t take them with the googley eyes! 🙂

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is all about bling and sparkle–check it out HERE. Check it out:

Be sure to check out the challenge and join in! I haven’t played along in so long and I’m glad I finally could! 🙂

Have a great rest of the week!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Seasons Greetings

Good Friday Morning, to you all! Thanks for stopping by! Today I am sharing a Paper Smooches card featuring some of my favorite little Paper Smooches snowmen/snowwomen. 🙂

Love this little guy. I created the background with Distress Oxide Inks, some water, some splats of paint and the hill. I colored the cute snowmen with Copics and adhered them with foam tape. That little one slays me with his cuteness!! ❤

The Seasons Greetings die is a fave because of course I adore the font of Kim’s handwriting, but I also love that it is square and bold. Perfect for cards. 🙂

Comfort

Happy Friday!!

I’m popping in with a Paper Smooches card. These are always the hardest to make, so I like to have them ready to go.

I colored these leaves very simply with Copic markers and added some stitching and scoring to finish it all off.

Fun & Festive from Simon Says Stamp!

There is a Fun & Festive new release  available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE. I used the new Christmas Wishes sentiment set today to make these tags and this card! 🙂

For these tags, I white heat embossed the sentiment on card stock and then cut little strips of paper to add-on. I grabbed some tags from my stash and stitched them on there. 🙂 White heat embossing is always my go-to for fun holiday cards/tags. I love that POP of white on red or kraft!

These tags are perfects to attach on packages or I can always add them to a card front! 🙂

For this card, I also added some Paper Smooches goodies on there. Paper Smooches: Teeny Stars, Holiday Sweets, and Tagged Stitched. ❤

Love this sentiment!

Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this release! ❤ It’s chock full of holiday cardmaking fun! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care–Jill

Hello

Hooray for October! I just love Fall, but apparently was still in a summer mood when I made this Paper Smooches card. I

I made the background with some Distress Inks and water. While that was drying, I die cut the cityscape and the sentiments. I added some ink splats before adhering everything down and adding some stitching.

This rainbow watercolor look is always a fave of mine!! 🙂 I am looking forward to mailing this…or did I mail it already? Ha!! 🙂

Batty Tags!

Hola! Just popping in with a handful of treat tags I whipped up for teachers and staff. (And one little dude’s lunchbox 😉 ) ❤

For these, I used Taylored Expressions Gone BattyPaper Smooches Tag Stitched Dies, Paper Smooches Teeny Stars, and Lawn Fawn’s Reveal Wheel Sentiments. Fun!

❤ !

Eeeeeeep! Love that little bat.

I backed this patterned paper with cardstock for heft. Otherwise, just colored all with Copic Markers, added a few splats, googley eyes (of course), a few felt stars and done! Ready to give.

Halloween treats before everyone is inundated with sugar. Ha!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂
