Love You Loads, Mom!

We meet again–Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a super fun and perfectly fitting Paper Smooches card. 😉 This card is ideal to give to my Mom on Mother’s Day (quickly approaching) or really anytime, for that matter. How many days in total did my Mom spend doing my laundry? Months? Years? Wow. ❤

For this card, I colored the fun Squeaky Clean Paper Smooches images with Copic Markers. (This little dust bunny has been a long time favorite of mine, so naturally, he had to hop in the laundry basket. 😉 ) I used the Power Rays die negative as a stencil and blended on some Distress Oxide inks. I laugh at how the laundry is emitting power rays! 🙂

I am always a fan of alphabet stamp sets and dies too. They allow you to make your cards say exactly what you need them to say. The heart on this is from the Little Lovin’ set. 🙂

Paper Smooches: Squeaky Clean + Squeaky Clean Icon Dies, Alphadot, Mom Word Die, A Little Lovin‘, Power Rays.

Happy New Beginnings!

It’s been another busy week and another survival of the stomach flu. I’m glad it’s Friday! Hooray!

I’m popping in today sharing another super fun Paper Smooches card. 😉 I just ❤ how this came out using Paper Smooches sets: Promenade and diesBitty Bunglalows and dies and the sentiment is from New Beginnings 2. I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and die cut them all out.

For this card, I just masked off a section of the panel and blended on some Distress Oxide inks. I’m not a big purple person, but my goal was to use it a few times this year, and I think I’ve now met that goal and can quit. Haaaaa! But seriously, I thought this turned out fun!

Such a perfect card to send a friend for her new adventure! ❤

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Toadally Dude

Happy day to you! Today I’m sharing a Toadally fun Paper Smooches card. 😉 I kept this card VERY simple, which is both easy and difficult. I’m sure you can relate if you make cards too.

How fun are these dudes?! I stamped and masked and stamped and masked. I colored them all with Copic Markers in very slightly different ways and added some Glossy Accents to their spots to polish them off before stitching them on.

 

I thought it would be fun to add a punny sentiment, of course. For this card, the little toads are from A Little Lovin, the *Toadally*is from the great punny set Critter Card Puns and the *dude* is from Slang Gang…. Slang Gang was one of my first Paper Smooches sets and it still gets a lot of <3.

Be sure to follow the Paper Smooches Blog for lots of inspiration on how to you mix and match your Paper Smooches stash! I’ve really been enjoying using all the things! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Happy St. Pat’s!
