Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing another card with this great new die from Paper Smooches January Release. Check out all the new products HERE! πŸ™‚


I started out with the I Heart You dies and added the Embroidery Hoop die.

I cut all the cardstock into strips and die cut the sentiment. Then used the Paper Smooches Rainbow Sorbet papers which worked perfectly! I am looking forward to giving this one to someone I love. πŸ™‚

Bad Influence :)

Happy Weekend! I’m here this cold Saturday morning to share another cute card from at Honey Bee Stamps! This is a fun one and perfect to send a friend of mine–Haaa!

This card features the cute little pig from the Bad Influence stamp set (and dies HERE). It’s funny because I first colored him and then decided I wanted to use some more of the cute patterned paper from Sweet on You instead.

I added the sweet little hearts from the Bee Mine dies. Combined with the paper and the Sweet on You Gems from Sweet on You, I think this little card turned out pretty darn cute! Totally different than I was starting out to make, but the patterned paper stamping is fun and I haven’t done that in awhile. Now, if only I could get some daylight to take decent photos this week…. gah! Boo!

I also used Honey Bee’s (new stencils) Mountain Z Fold StencilsΒ ,Grass Border die and Bokeh Lights Confetti, of course! πŸ™‚

Winter Love

We are almost to the weekend! Hooray! Today I am sharing another card with the fun new release from Paper Smooches! πŸ™‚Β This is perfect because it has been snowing a lot here yesterday and today!

I combined the new Huge Snowflake Dies andΒ Winter Greetings Stamps and Dies. Gah so fun!

The sentiment is from the new Winter Greetings Stamps. I die cut all the Huge Snowflakes and added them to the panel I had added some paint and stitching to.
As always, the new PS release is so delightful! ❀

Sending Smiles!

Happy Weekend! Have you seen the new release over at Honey Bee Stamps?!!! So much love is in the air over there, so be sure to check out the new goodies!

Today, I had to share a card using the cute little bee, Bee Mine, that is FREE with a $50 or more purchase! Eeep! πŸ™‚ I paired him with this sentiment from the new Blown Away stamp set (coordinating dies for Blown Away HERE) and new paper pad, Sweet on You. The Honey Bee Paper pads are always FULL of awesome patterns and divine colors!

I colored the sweet bee with Copics before die cutting him out. I die cut the Sweet on You paper with the Scallop A2 dies I added some stitching details to the PP. After that, I added the cute Bee with some foam adhesive. I added some Bokeh Lights Confetti  and some gems from the Holiday Traditions set.

I think it turned out full of smiles to send in the mail! Oh so cute!! πŸ™‚

Warm Hugs!

If you haven’t seen the whole new release from Paper Smooches yet, be sure to check it all out!! πŸ™‚

Today I am using a couple little ditties to make this sweet little winter scene, perfect for my local landscape today! πŸ™‚

I combined the new Scene Builder Stencil with the new Winter Greetings Stamps and Dies! It’s a match made in stampy heaven! πŸ™‚

The cutie little snow peeps are from the new Winter Greetings Stamps and DiesΒ  and I blended on lots of inks to create a sweet scene for them to hang in! πŸ™‚ The best part is that background is all one layer, but all the blending from the ONE Scene Builder Stencil, gives it a great layered look easily and mailing friendly! πŸ™‚
Gah, so cute! This new PS release is so Paper Smooches: ❀ !!

This NEW Paper Smooches release is available…and includes the new black and white paper!!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing this cozy card with the new papers and new die from Paper Smooches January Release. Check out all the new products HERE! πŸ™‚


Black and White and Red all over indeed! πŸ™‚ Such a great new set of I Heart You dies (saying I Love You) with Kim’s fantastic whimsy handwriting! So many things to do with this little gem!

I die cut the sentiment out and matted it, adding it all to a die cut frame (using the Scallop Frame Dies) and the Half Moon Paper. The plaid is so fun and I love the cozy feel of this card. πŸ™‚
