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! โค

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

The new Paper Smooches June release can be found HERE! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!  ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

I used some Frosted Lace stickles to create an “icey” look. Kinda fun, but photographs like muck. haaaa! Better in person, thank goodness! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The little smiley is from the previously released Pineapple Crush set. โค

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And of course, googley eyes! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is for him, as he’ll also love the googley eyes! Too funny! ๐Ÿ™‚
