You Are My Sunshine!

Happy Friday! Before the Paper Smooches (very fun!) July Release debuts next week, I wanted to share one more card that is one of my favorites of the June Paper Smooches release available HERE! 🙂

For this card, I used the new Sunnyville and Sunnyville icon dies! This little sun hugging this little cloud is just one of my faves of all time from Paper Smooches. It is soooo adorable! 🙂 Kim has such a great way of designing these little cutie stamps! 🙂

I mean really, could this be any sweeter? I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut them out, adhering with foam adhesive. (THIS is the foam tape I’ve been using a lot–very inexpensive!)

Paper Smooches: Sunnyille, Sunnyville Icon Dies, Flaunters. The rest of the new release is HERE!

As I mentioned, the new Paper Smooches July Release is next week! We are having our Design Team hop on July 6th–so be ready!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by today!

Take care–Jill 🙂

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!!

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! ❤

I can’t wait to share more of these cute products this month! 🙂

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
