I’m So Glad I Picked You!

Happy FRIDAY! What a week. Phew. 

Today, I’m sharing this floraltastic card using the Garden Blooms dies and the Kindness Sampler! ❤

I laid up some strips of cardstock and then die cut the flowers. I then overlaid the flower outlines on top in white. Finally, I stamped the sentiment as the stem to the flowers, and added some leaves. Fun! 

These flowers are awesome and so versatile! A perfect addition to the PS lineup! 🙂

The new Paper Smooches June release can be found HERE! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!  🙂

Paper Smooches Fun!

I’m poppin’ in because the new Paper Smooches June release is available HERE! I was going to share my favorites from this release, but then the list just included everything, for one reason or another! Haaaa! So be sure to check it all out! 🙂

I thought I’d share this fun card I made with the new Garden Greetings stamp set and dies. This set combines the sentiment and images, all in one! Super quick and easy for cards! 🙂

I colored this “hi” with Copic makers and added some Glossy accents. I added it to the Tag Stitched Die that I die cut from patterned paper! (Yay me, using PP!)

I then busted out some old school corrugated paper and added the tags to a card. Kinda fun. Kinda retro, right? Haaa! 🙂

While I’m here, thought I’d share these cards I made for my son’s teachers, as end of the year cards. I’m sure they need a summer break too, BIG time! So I ran with that theme. I’ll be sending these along with some summer goodies as a HUGE thank you for an awesome first year in Elementary School. Phew. I can’t believe it’s almost wrapped up! I will not cry. I will not cry. I’ll totally cry.  🙂

I used some Frosted Lace stickles to create an “icey” look. Kinda fun, but photographs like muck. haaaa! Better in person, thank goodness! 😉

The little smiley is from the previously released Pineapple Crush set. ❤

I rubbed on some Persimmon Distress Ink to give the Popsicles a little touch, but it pretty much all soaked in to the paper. I have a knack for that too. 😉

And of course, googley eyes! 🙂

For this I used the Cool Treats dies. These are a staple! So so so fun! I also used the sparky Summer Sampler set! I just partially inked the sentiment stamps and stacked the words that way. It is probably MUCH easier to cut the stamp, but, I have issues. LOL!!

Getting in the summer grove!! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you Relax and Chill!  🙂

Anything is Popsicle!

Having fun with the July Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Summer!

hawkins_jill_popsicle_00_0wmOk, so between this Flav-or-Ice die and the super fun sentiments in this Summer Sampler set, I was smitten! My son LOVES these Popsicle treats, probably because he gets them at his grandparent’s houses! 🙂 This one is for him, as he’ll also love the googley eyes! Too funny! 🙂


Paper Smooches : Cool Treats Dies, and the Summer Sampler! This sentiment is my FAVORITE!! Just so stinkin’ fun!
