Smile for the Cameras!

Happy Thursday! Popping in quick to freshen things up here ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I’m sharing these cards I made with the cameratastic August Release fromย Technique Tuesday! They can be found HERE!

I love the Oh Snap stamp! fun fun!!

I mixed up a bunch of different sets for this spunky little number! Technique Tuesday’s: We Just Click,ย Planner Camera, Start With a Smile Stamp set, and Caught on Camera stamp set.

This next one might be my favorite of the lot. ๐Ÿ™‚ I stamped this panel and left it to dry on my desk. Forgot about it! Then a couple weeks later, I found it all ready to color! Love that! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this, I used Zig Clean Color fluorescent pens. The photos always dull it down a bit, but in person, it is bright!

Alrighty, that’s all I have for today! Check back soon as the new September TT release is right around the corner!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a good one!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday All! If you are looking for my Paper Smooches DT Pep Rally post, please click HERE.


Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards using Paper Smooches August released UNICORN DIE! That’s right, Unicorn Die. I die. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL! I also used the Magical Sampler stamp set and Flower Frames dies for this first card. Eeeeeep! Magical! ๐Ÿ™‚

For my first card, I embraced the unicorn and all her rainbowness! ๐Ÿ™‚ (<—- Yup, that’s a word. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

And of course, I had to add a googley eye, but take care not to cover up her eyelashes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For this next card, I took another route using the same die. Kim is always thinking, and made the unicorn’s alicorn separate, so you can create a horse, or a zebra, or whatever your crafty heart desires. โค that!!

I used Distress Inks for the background and made a sparkly little grass patch for this fun horse to stand on. The leaves are from the Wavy Wishes set. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think this little Unicorn die will be used a lot around here, making birthday cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can check out the NEWย Paper Smoochesย August releaseย HERE! And be sure to hop along with us for a sneak peek at the September release, and your chances to win a Paper Smooches Gift Card! Wooooooooohoooo! You can start HERE on the Paper Smooches blog from yesterday.

Hope your weekend feels long and relaxing!

Popping in to share a card I made with Paper Smooches new Flower Frame dies and the previously released stamp sets, Kindness Sampler and Best Buds! The combo makes such a sweet card! ๐Ÿ™‚
I stamped the card base with the little flower stamps from the Best Buds set.
I watercolored these flowers with my Zig clean color markers. I cannot decide if I need any more colors of those or not. Some I have are so similar, they are almost the same? LOL
For another way to use these frames, check my previous post HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for the Paper Smooches Pep Rally โค !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Paper Smooches Flower Frames

Happy Friday! Things are ramping up around here as we cram in the last bits of summer before school starts. It’s another full day today! ๐Ÿ™‚ All good things!

Today I’m sharing these little tags I made with Paper Smooches new Flower Frame dies and the previously released stamp set, New Beginnings 2! They are brown and yellow, and look more fall/”sunflowery” in person! Ha!
(This tag is Paper Smooches Tag Stitched dies. <3)
I LOVE these frames, and I actually will probably use them more as frames. However,ย  I thought it was fun to use them as centerpieces on these tags and my previous cards HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think they are fun to stand on their own! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out all the new Paper Smooches goodies HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT weekend!

Wish Big

Hooray for Friday!

Today I’m sharing a card I made with the new Magical Sampler stamp set from Paper Smooches! When I finished this card, I did a little happy squeak! I just think it turned out so fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

These little lights are from the new Wavy Wishes set and coordinating icon dies HERE. I colored them with Copic Markers, added Glossy Accents, and adhered with silver thread and foam adhesive.

One of my favorite images for the holidays are these types of Christmas lights. But aren’t they fun to repurpose for the rest of the year? โค

This awesome frame is the Rose Frame die. I use it ALL THE TIME! ๐Ÿ™‚ I finished this card off with some simple stitching. ๐Ÿ™‚ A lovely little birthday card!

Have a great weekend!

Technique Tuesday: Christmas in August!

A new month, a new bunch of stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday ! They can all be found HERE! Not only are Christmas stamps in this release, but lots of camera-y goodness and of course, the latest flower. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, I’ll share the Christmas cards I made because they make me laugh! And I NEED to make more…so hoping this gets me going! ๐Ÿ™‚

Both cards use awesomely funny new sentiments from this Dear Santa set. Crack. Me. Up. ๐Ÿ™‚

I stamped this on kraft and colored with colored pencils. I also used the new planning set, Christmas Doodles ( โค these little doodles!) for stamping a tone on tone background for this card base. The die is a favorite go-to: Postage Card Die.

This next card, I also use the same Dear Santa set, but also I used the newly released, Spirit of December. A versatile set with simple images (aka, not intimidating) and great sentiments for scrapbook use (and ALWAYS cards)! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I colored the images with Copic markers and added some washi tape along the bottom before stitching the panel on.

How super funny is this sentiment?! LOL! How many of these could I send out? Bwwwaaahahhaa! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be sure to check out ALL the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! It’s a release I can’t wait to get out and use some more!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great Sunday!

Enjoy- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun Wavy Patterns!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a couple fun cards I made with the freshly released Paper Smooches Wavy Patterns die and the versatile coordinating Wavy Wishes stamp set. These stamps fit right into the pattern the die creates, and you can mix up the sentiments. โค๏ธ! I have yet to crack the surface with possibilities! 
Love the movement! And these cutie birds that I colored  with Copics. 

This next card, I added an ombrรฉ happy whale from the Huge Hugs set. (I also used the coordinating dies for him.)
I really โค๏ธ the sentiment Happy Thoughts and am already planning to use it often. 

I made these cards weeks apart, and yet I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend on both backgrounds. Funny! The first one is Cracked Pistachio and the blue is Faded Jeans. They are fun to use! I’m pretty excited about the new, bright colors out, but am trying to wait on acquiring them. TRYING. Haaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished both cards off with a little stitching and a couple of bits. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you check out the new release from Paper Smooches!

Wishing you a happy day!
