Stitching Thanks

Happy Friday! I’m here today sharing a Paper Smooches card I stitched. First, let me say that my cursive is a bit rusty–Ha! So my stitches are a wee bit off. You can see the Design Team’s cards HERE, and they have more skills in the cursive department! Haaaaa!! (Don’t tell my third grade teacher! πŸ˜‰ )

Of course, I still think it is a sweet card, I’m just off a couple of stitches. πŸ˜‰ I kept it very simple so the stitching could shine. I added a couple of little hearts for some ❀ and some simple sewing . (I used a green DMC floss for the Thanks.)

The Paper Smooches stitching dies are just delightful and I love that they give cards a different kind of flare. Plus, when I’m organized ahead of time, I like to take them with me and stitch them on the go. Besides coloring, I can’t really haul all the card making stuff along anywhere, so I love this! πŸ˜‰

Stitched Heart

Happy Weekend–Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m off a couple of days on sharing my Paper Smooches card this week. I was out-of-town last weekend having lots of crafty fun and have been catching up ever since!!Β  πŸ™‚ SO worth it though! ❀

Well, I adore the Paper Smooches stitching dies, and this new batch is no exception, for sure!

I decided this one didn’t even need a sentiment, because the stitched heart says it all! I used the recently released Flaunters dies to give it a center frame and stitched the lower portion on. I added everything on to a scored the panel. That heart just makes me smile! I cannot wait to make more of these!! πŸ™‚

Water You Up To?!

Happy Friday! Today, I’m sharing my Paper Smooches card that I just say eeeek too! Love these new Paper Smooches critters!!  πŸ™‚

I cannot get enough of Paper Smooches little critters–ever! And the sentiments? Water You Up To? I just ❀ !! So enjoyable! πŸ™‚

For this, I blended on some Distress Oxide inks and ink splats before I put my cute little critters colored with Copic Markers on. I added some scoring to the panel and then partially die cut it for a fun little window. The sentiment, some confetti sequins, and some stitching polished it all off. ❀

Sending Sparkly Wishes!

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week–it has been an odd one for sure, as I have been off one day all week. So today is Saturday, in my book. But unfortunately, it SO is not. ha! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m sharing this sweet Paper Smooches card!

Ok, that snail and that bee though!! And I just had to have that little snail carry the tooth. ❀ The tooth is in this set and I think it is adorable with that little face! Eeek!! I might leave this for the tooth fairy to give one day. πŸ˜‰

I added some sparkle which adds some pop to this in person, but doesn’t show up stellar in photos.Β  πŸ™‚

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!
