Thank You

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m here sharing a new Paper Smooches card. I can never ever have enough Thank You cards ready to roll! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut everything and adhered it down, and then die cut the die cuts to complete the card. I also did some embossing with the cross stitch die before adding some final stitching to the panel. ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought this turned out so bright and cheerful! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hoping to Make You Smile!

Happy Friday! WE made it! Hooooooray!! ๐Ÿ™‚ This Paper Smooches card is perfectly fitting for a day like today.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I completely adore these Monster Dies from Paper Smooches and cannot ever use them enough. I mean, this little guy is sure to make someone smile. The teeth and then the added googley eyes!? Too funny. There are silly eye combos you can make with the dies in the set too, so the possibilities are endless there.

The dotted background was fun to make. I die cut the Deco Edge dies multiple times with multiple colors. Then I laid down the strips and glued in the dots to each little area, careful to try to not glue the strip itself down. It worked great to keep everything evenly spaced.

Happy Monday…I hope!

I thought I’d pop in with a few Paper Smooches cards I’ve made recently. I just โค 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ (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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my word! How fantastic is this taco from Paper Smooches Calorie Free set! Pssst grab this set before it’s gone! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ So fun and PERFECT to send my taco loving friend! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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! โค

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! โค

Have an awesome week!

Hello Again! :)

Happy Friday! I’m popping in with a card using Paper Smooches NEW November goodies! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card I used: New Deco Edge Dies, New Layered Hello Dies, and the previously released Postage Stamp Dies.

I just love how this card turned out! Definitely one of my favorite kind of cards that includes a lot of white and some simple clean, designs that POP! These cards always take a little longer than you’d think to make, but in the end, โค them and really enjoy making them!

I added a few layers of the hello to give it some girth. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I even doubled up on the Postage Stamp dies. โค These new Deco Edge dies are crazy versatile for edges, or underneath or just here as a background. They are well-loved already! ๐Ÿ™‚

All the November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Such sweetness!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
