Peace & Love

Hooray for Friday! I find it a little odd to be posting this on Friday the 13th (ha!), but so it goes! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m I’m sharing my Paper Smooches card using the new Mini Cross die and the the Boxed Greetings, along with their coordinating dies HERE.

 I created this background using the two Distress Oxides Blues–Broken China and Faded Blue Jeans. I added some flicks of water and white, a few embossed stars to polish that off. I partially diecut both the Mini Cross and the Boxed Greetings. I added some quick stitching and done! πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas…and scene! :)

Happy ALMOST weekend!

Today, I’m popping in with a sweet little Christmas number using the New Paper Smooches Merry Christmas dieΒ and the previously released, Promenade (and coordinating dies). The little snowflake balls are from the new going-to-be-used-a-lot-set, Boxed Greetings. Good gravy, do I enjoy Kim’s handwriting, and this die is dynamite for the holiday season!

One of my favorite combos of all time is kraft, red, and white. Well, to be 100% truthful, kraft is one of my favorite colors of all time on its own! πŸ™‚

I white heat embossed this scene on the kraft panel, and then added a smidge of Versamark pen to darken some areas. I also added a few bits with Prismacolor colored pencils for the berries and glowing light. I die cut the Merry Christmas die from a couple of layers of red cardstock and one or two white for some POP! πŸ™‚

I love all the little parts in the Promenade set and the fact that you can die cut them out, is the icing on the cake. Those wreaths alone are a card waiting to happen. πŸ™‚
