Today, I’m sharing a card showing off the new Stackers Stencil! You can make a rainbow!!! As you can see here, because I essentially make four little ones!! 🙂 This stencil is FULL of things to stencil on your projects–so so fun! 🙂
I used the previously release Monster Dies and Flaunters Dies to complete this card with the fun background!  🙂
For making this project, I just masked off the parts of the stencil I didn’t want to ink and blended on inks with my favorite blender brushes. I use post-it notes generally to just mask things off, quick and easy!
I feel like I have barely scratched the surface with this stencil!! 🙂 I hope to be back again soon to show more projects with it! 🙂

Happy Halloween!

Hppe your week is starting off great! I’m here to share another card with the September goodies from Paper Smooches ♥️!! 🙂

Today: This fun Halloween card using the new Pumpkin and Ghost Dies and sentiment from Face Off so fun! 🙂
I created this background blending on oxide inks in different colors and adding the star stamps from the set in gold and black, along with some ink splatters.
I thought this turned out to be a fun Halloween card to pop in the mail! Looking forward to that!

STAMPtember with Paper Smooches!

Oh Happy Day! Paper Smooches has a festively autumn collaboration with Simon Says Stamp for STAMPtember!! You can find this Paper Smooches Deco Fall set HERE.

I love that these are solid images that can be stamped in fall colors …or any colors!!

First up I have this sweet card heavily inspired by my friend Lori last weekend. She made a set of beautiful cards that has clearly stuck with me, because I created this inspired by her cards. ❤

I masked off a center portion of this card and blending on some ink, scoring it to polish if off. I added this sweet acorn after I fussy cut it out.
I just thought it turned out so sweet. 🙂

Next up, is the all about Autumn card! I used all the fall colors on it–my fave!

Welcome Autumn! Love these sweet leaves! They make quick work of festive cards. 🙂

I added some stitching to polish it all off. 🙂 This PS  Deco Fall set is a fabulous set to celebrate Fall!

You can find allllllll things STAMPtember HERE! And Simon Says Stamp HERE!

Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along again to celebrate this STAMPtember collaboration with Paper Smooches! ❤

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy STAMPtember!

Take care–Jill

Happy Friday! I’m here to share another card with the NEW RELEASE from Paper Smooches ♥️!! 🙂

Today, I am sharing this sweet little number using two new stencils: Buffalo Checked Stencil and Autumn Stencil. This cutie sentiment is from Face Off so fun! 🙂
The cute little faces!! I just ❤ them!

I overlaid the stencils to just get cute little buffalo checked pumpkins, blending on some inks. This sweet little sentiment finished it off  from Face Off!

Happy Friday! There is a NEW RELEASE from Paper Smooches available NOW ♥️!! 🙂 Once again, another release full of delights! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Face Off and Best Witches Stamps and Dies . Our son’s birthday is tomorrow, so I thought this was perfecting fitting to share today! 🙂
I just think these little guys are adorable and then when I added the little guy from the Best Witches set, I just thought, oh goodness, that is TOO cute! The first part of the sentiment is from the Dude Sampler and then I stamped the *Boo* from Face Off!
I made the background by masking off the cutie ghosts and using the Hot Dots Stencil. Gah! 🙂 So stinkin cute! Just love the Paper Smooches little critters and fonts! ❤

I used the previously release Fab Frame Dies to make a little highlight window for him. Just love this cutie!  🙂
