Stitching Thanks

Happy Friday! I’m here today sharing a Paper Smooches card I stitched. First, let me say that my cursive is a bit rusty–Ha! So my stitches are a wee bit off. You can see the Design Team’s cards HERE, and they have more skills in the cursive department! Haaaaa!! (Don’t tell my third grade teacher! 😉 )

Of course, I still think it is a sweet card, I’m just off a couple of stitches. 😉 I kept it very simple so the stitching could shine. I added a couple of little hearts for some ❤ and some simple sewing . (I used a green DMC floss for the Thanks.)

The Paper Smooches stitching dies are just delightful and I love that they give cards a different kind of flare. Plus, when I’m organized ahead of time, I like to take them with me and stitch them on the go. Besides coloring, I can’t really haul all the card making stuff along anywhere, so I love this! 😉

Stitched Heart

Happy Weekend–Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m off a couple of days on sharing my Paper Smooches card this week. I was out-of-town last weekend having lots of crafty fun and have been catching up ever since!!  🙂 SO worth it though! ❤

Well, I adore the Paper Smooches stitching dies, and this new batch is no exception, for sure!

I decided this one didn’t even need a sentiment, because the stitched heart says it all! I used the recently released Flaunters dies to give it a center frame and stitched the lower portion on. I added everything on to a scored the panel. That heart just makes me smile! I cannot wait to make more of these!! 🙂

Water You Up To?!

Happy Friday! Today, I’m sharing my Paper Smooches card that I just say eeeek too! Love these new Paper Smooches critters!!  🙂

I cannot get enough of Paper Smooches little critters–ever! And the sentiments? Water You Up To? I just ❤ !! So enjoyable! 🙂

For this, I blended on some Distress Oxide inks and ink splats before I put my cute little critters colored with Copic Markers on. I added some scoring to the panel and then partially die cut it for a fun little window. The sentiment, some confetti sequins, and some stitching polished it all off. ❤

Sending Sparkly Wishes!

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week–it has been an odd one for sure, as I have been off one day all week. So today is Saturday, in my book. But unfortunately, it SO is not. ha! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing this sweet Paper Smooches card!

Ok, that snail and that bee though!! And I just had to have that little snail carry the tooth. ❤ The tooth is in this set and I think it is adorable with that little face! Eeek!! I might leave this for the tooth fairy to give one day. 😉

I added some sparkle which adds some pop to this in person, but doesn’t show up stellar in photos.  🙂

Awwww so sweet!! The New Paper Smooches release is all available HERE now. Don’t miss the fun on the Paper Smooches Blog!! Kim is having giveaways! And I just peeked and there are several of my faves she’s offering up–RUN! 🙂
