Love Birds

Happy weekend! There is something NEW from Paper Smooches available now HERE! 🙂

Stencils!! There is the new Cloud Stencil and the new Flourishes Stencil! I have cards using them in the next release, but for now, I just whipped this one up HERE using the Cloud Stencil for fun and the Daily Marker 30 Day!

I hope you’ll enjoy the new stencils as much as I am!! So cool and easy to work with.

Tonight, I’m sharing a card using the new Vespa Die and Feathered Friends (with Feathered Friends Icon dies). Also, I used the Mirror Blocks for the mirror image of the cute bird! This Vespa–I want to create a bunch of colors of them and then ride them! If only! 🙂

I blended the background on simply with inks and colored the cutie birds with Copic Markers.
Love Birds! 🙂 Too fun!!

I hope you check out the stencils and enjoy them as much as I do!! 🙂

Paper Smooches June Sunshine!

Happy weekend! There is a NEW RELEASE from Paper Smooches available now HERE! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Sunnyville and Sunnyville icon dies! I cannot tell you how much I have squeaked over these new goodies, making my cards for June–I just think they are SO adorable!! ❤

I cut out the little triangles from the Sunnyville Icon dies using a bunch of different card stocks. I adhered those all down with foam adhesive and then added the Sunnyville stamps colored with Copics on top. To be honest, I didn’t even realize there was no sentiment until typing up this post! Ha! ❤

Rest and Refresh! NEW Release from SSS!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE— It’s called Rest and Refresh! I has the pleasure to use the sweet new Filigree Wreath.

I decided to make a “few” cards using this fun new wreath…figuring if I was going to die cut all these pieces, I might as well! I love to die cut inlay and I decided I need to watch some TV and zone out, so the combo worked out well. It’s like putting together a puzzle. The key is not lose any of the little bits–that is actually a bit tricky. 🙂

All the little bits add such detail, I kept the rest of these cards pretty simple from there.

Here it is in all green!

I kinda really dig the one color! 🙂

Here’s another very clean one. I’m not a big on adornments for Sympathy cards.

I was going to do all white, but decided to add this colored panel behind.

And lastly another colorful one:

I decided I’d make the dots black on this one, and I don’t think I used the correct pen unfortunately. I’m probably the only one who notices that though. 😉

I thought the lot of these turned out lovely and they are great for mailing because they are flat. This new Filigree Wreath die has so much detail and sweetness, I felt I could keep the rest very clean. ♥️

I used sentiments from the new Paper Smooches set Sunnyville and the previously released Sympathy Sampler. The “Be You” sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Rainbow Wishes.

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this fun NEW release!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday!

Take care–Jill
