Love You

Are you ready for the weekend? I am looking forward to it.

You can check out all the new Paper Smooches ♥️  HERE. It’s nice to still feel like summer with this fresh release!

This is the great new stencil Succulent Stencil. I love that it is super large and can fill a card in a snap! This sweet sentiment is from the new Posh Planters stamps (matching dies Posh Planters dies).  🙂

I blended on some inks, actually super fast, because I just wanted to try this stencil. Ha! And then I really liked it, so I kept it and used it. Big win.  I added some stitching to finish it all off. I went a little awry in a couple places, (don’t look too hard!), but I think it’s ok. 😉

Such a sweet card in the end!

Aloe!

Happy Sunday! It is rainy and storming here today, so I thought I’d pop in with some cute cacti and love!  You can check out all the new Paper Smooches ♥️  HERE. Such a fun release!

These cute little cacti are from the new Cacti Dies. I enjoy them because they are simple and the perfect size! You can make them be whatever you want–simple, decorated, cacti people, what have you. 🙂  This puntastic sentiment is from the new Posh Planters stamps (matching dies Posh Planters dies). The stencil is the new Hot Dot Stencil, which I use all the time–because polka dots!! And it has all different sizes of Polkas! So perfect! 🙂

I am ALWAYS a fan of a good pun, and Paper Smooches always has the best ones! 🙂 You had me at aloe! I ❤ it so!!

And of course, I added some googley eyes! The minute I saw these little cuties, I knew I would! 🙂

Hello, Posh Planters!

The NEW RELEASE from Paper Smooches available ♥️!! 🙂 If you missed my blog hop post from the other week, be sure to check that one out HERE.

I thought I’d pop in and share a fun card today–It turned out to be such a sweet one to send!

This one is made with the new Posh Planters stamps and Posh Planters dies. The sentiment is from the previously released Inverted Greetings set. This also features the Geo Frame die…Which is a super fun frame for EVERYTHING!! 🙂

It was fun to color these little succulents and I fully enjoy that they are in a little pot! I’m certain you’ll want to check out the other PS DT cards to see some really good coloring of these. I just kinda wing my coloring. But they have skills to make these truly shine! 🙂

I’m looking forward to mailing this one! 🙂

You Rock!

Happy Thursday! I thought I’d pop in and share another fun card from the July Release over at  Paper Smooches. You can check it all out HERE ♥️!! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new You Rock die. I kept this one VERY simple and in person, it’s allllll in the layers!

I just love layering up a good rainbow as it has a major impact in person, but it is tricky to photograph, I will say. 😉
Here’s a super close up:
Paper Smooches: You Rock die.

I just love the fun simplicity of this die and Kim’s handwriting!! 🙂

All The Feels

Happy Thursday! Hopefully you have seen the  new release from Paper Smooches. If not, you can check it all out HERE ♥️!! 🙂 It’s such a fun one!!! ❤

If you missed my post Blog Hop, check that out HERE and my other post with a card from the new release HERE.

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Inhale Exhale sentiment set and Clouds Stencil! The sentiments in this set are so unique and Kim’s hand lettering just really puts them in their own stratosphere of delightful! 🙂
I also used the recently released Fab Frames Dies –these dies are getting a workout for some many cards!! ❤ I used a bunch of different inks to blend the ink onto the Cloud stencil, stamped the sentiment, stitched the frame and put it all together. I enjoy how it turned out! 🙂
These and all the other new goodies are available over at Paper Smooches HERE!
This card is perfect for so many occasions–I wish I had made a handful all at once to send! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
