Thanks So Much!

Happy Friday! I hope you enjoyed this week’s Paper Smooches Blog Hop as much as I did! Too cute! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m sharing this colorfulΒ Paper Smooches card! I love to make Thank You notes and I thought these new Flaunters dies would be fun to just use on their own. Of course, I’m thinking I’ll use them mostly for frames, but I like to mix it up! πŸ™‚

For this I scored the panel and then die cut it, keeping all the pieces together and organized with a little Post-It tape. Then I just inlaid everything back in.

I love how cheerful it all turned out. ❀ The New Paper Smooches release is all available HERE now. And don’t forget to follow the fun on the Paper Smooches Blog!!

You Are a Rare Find!

Hello and happy ALMOST weekend! I’m off having an awesome time with some crafty friends today, but thought I’d pop in to share one SUPER FUN Paper Smooches card!

Oh my word! This card is a favorite! πŸ™‚ I just think this combo is a delight! ❀ how this came together!

For the background of this card, I masked an area and just blended on some Distress Oxide Inks and added some spatters. Seems to be my 2018 thing to do. πŸ˜‰ I added the little Wavy Pattern hill and my Copic colored little astronaut and dino. I finished it all off with the Teeny Stars, stamped sentiment and stitching. Eeeeeep! Just love it so! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used these fun Paper Smooches products: Space Cadet, Huge Hugs, Huge Hugs Icon dies, Wavy Pattern dies, Teeny Star dies, Magical Sampler.

I am really looking forward to tucking this one into my son’s lunchbox one day! πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!

School Love

Happy Fri-YAY right? I’m not sure how I feel about that term, but I was writing Friday and Hooray, so went for it! πŸ˜‰

For these cutie Paper Smooches cards today, I used the following Paper Smooches: Smarty Pants and Dies, Notebook Basic Die, andΒ  Cuteasauras.

I colored all these with Copic Markers and added them to the Notebook die.

Eeeep so cute! I love when something simple turns out so awesomely sweet! πŸ™‚

This last one lost it’s crayon. I’m not sure if I didn’t color enough or if someone small who lives here nabbed it before I put it on a card! Haaa! πŸ™‚

I just love that little inch worm! And the pencil, of course! Easily some of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps–but I bet I say often, don’t I? Just ❀ PS! πŸ™‚
I cannot wait to give these to my son and his teacher. πŸ™‚
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

You are Crafty and Kind!

Hello! I’m popping in tonight to share a card I finally made! I tinkered around with these die cuts for quite some time, and then this happened. Ha!

If you look at it,Β  you can see it is wonky right? I’m thinking I should have left two more “triangles” out to make it less awkward overall. Arranging them this way doesn’t quite make a complete “star”. There isn’t quite enough room. πŸ˜‰ But it is what it is and nothing is coming off now, since it’s all stitched down! πŸ™‚

I looooove this Essentials by Ellen Silver Linings die and I was hoping to do something more with it too. But wow, has time been elusive! I usually craft in late evenings after all of everything, but lately I’ve had so many other things. It’ll pass hopefully! I need that time back to make stuff and exercise that part of my brain. I always feel better. πŸ™‚

I super enjoy this fun sentiment from this Essential by Ellen set: Crafty Ladies Say.

I wanted to participate in the latest Ellen Hutson’s Pin-sights Challenge! I so dig this color inspiration and yet, I feel that I didn’t quite capture it fully. Things went a different direction that I initially planned! Doesn’t that happen often or what?! Haaaaa!

Check it out and join in! There’s still a few days to jump in!Β  πŸ™‚

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with another FEW cards! ❀

Thanks for stoppin’ in!

Love

Hope you are ready to jump-start your weekend?! I’m always glad for the reprieve of packing lunch! How funny is that? πŸ™‚

For my card today, I used the following Paper Smooches products: Smoocheroos, Postage Stamp Dies, Inchies Dies. I really wanted to try to use the smallest stamps in the Smoocheroos set and see if I could make a card work. I like it!! πŸ™‚ Such fun to use the “less obvious” stamps in a set.

I like how those little guys ended up being the focal point. πŸ™‚

They are super cute, right? Awwww! I used Hero Arts Ombre Pad for the background sentiment. Worked out well–less guess-work! Hooray! πŸ™‚
We have another busy weekend ahead, but in a few weekends , I see a little space on the calendar…. shhhhhhh! πŸ™‚ We’ll need it!
Thanks for stopping by today and take care–
