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. 🙂

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 🙂
