Thank You, Favorite Human

We meet again! Yay! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

This Friday’s Paper Smooches card is brought to you by these sweet little birds! Thank you Thank you Thank you! I stamped this background awhile back and it has been sitting on my desk to use for months. It finally got its day in the sun.

I colored these fun little birds with Copic Markers. Next, I die cut the notepad window for them and added some scoring lines. I then white heat embossed the sentiment strip and adhered everything down with foam tape. To polish it off, I added some stitching, of course. 😉

Such a sweet card to say Thank You to our favorite human! 🙂

Hey Chick!

Happy Friday, crafty peeps! 🙂 I’m here to share this fun little Paper Smooches card that I made for a friend today. 😉 It is the perfect card to send her. ❤️

I colored this cutie flamingo with Copic markers.  I reverse scored the card base and set it aside. For the background, I masked off a rectangle and blended on some Distress Oxide Inks. I used Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover. I spattered on some black acrylic pain, added some stitching and complete. ❤

Paper Smooches: Baby Birds, Baby Birds Icons dies, Feathered Friends.

Let’s Squalk About it!

I hope those who celebrated our Thanksgiving yesterday had a fun, tummy filled one!

My cute little card today uses the new Baby Birds stamps and dies, of course. 🙂

I colored this little cutie with Copic Markers and added a white heat embossed sentiment to the mix. I also added a little watercolor panel embossed with the Paper Smooches Cross Stitch die. I love this die as much for cross-stitching as I do for embossing backgrounds!

My signature mark seems to be this watercolor dripping off the side of the card nowadays. LOL. Not tragic, but definitely not planned either!

I ❤ this Baby Bird set!! Meep!! (And I’d like to note that I used Purple. 🙂 A rare sighting! haahaaa!)

The awesome Paper Smooches November release is available HERE! ❤

Have a fantastic weekend…napping, shopping,  enjoying family …or all the above!! 🙂

Take care–Jill 🙂

Happy Monday…I hope!

I thought I’d pop in with a few Paper Smooches cards I’ve made recently. I just ❤ my Paper Smooches stash!

This first card uses the new Baby Birds stamps and dies, of course. Because seriously, this set is the cutest thing on my desk! 😉 The timing of this set was also perfect because I needed this sentiment to make and mail a card to my sweet friend.

I also used the Pineapple 2 die and the Deco Edges dies. Eeeeep! This is the cutest little bird! 🙂 (We joined Page Maps this month and you can check out that HERE. I used the sketch they sent me to make this card–FUN!!)

This next one I intended to share on Taco Tuesday, but let’s celebrate today, Ok? Everyday is a good day for a taco, after all. 🙂

Oh my word! How fantastic is this taco from Paper Smooches Calorie Free set! Pssst grab this set before it’s gone! 😉

I don’t have the coordinating dies, so I just fussy cut out this little Copic colored taco and gave him some googley eyes, of course. 🙂 So fun and PERFECT to send my taco loving friend! 🙂

Next up, I used Paper Smooches Garden Greetings stamp set and dies. Eeeeeep! I LOVE this bee! I needed some Thank You cards and found myself coloring tulips. In November. LOL. 😉

I colored these and die cut them out. I added some Wink of Stella glittery shine and some Glossy Accents over that. I scored some little card pieces and cut the edges with the new Deco Edges die. Although, I see in these photos it’s hard to see either of those details too good!?

The new-goodness-filled Paper Smooches November release is available HERE! ❤

Thanks for stopping by again and for all the kind comments I have received here lately…and always, for that matter! So kind of you all! ❤

Have an awesome week!
