A lil’ cuteness…

Happy Wednesday! I thought I’d pop in super quick and share a few recent Paper Smooches cards I made. I am ALWAYS excited about new products, but I love using my older products as well. After all, I have them for a reason!  🙂

First up, are these cuties I recently made with my son. Normally, when we make cards together, I personally never get anything made. That’s because I’m always helping him set up the MISTI or get this supply or that, etc. But this session, I did get these cuties made! I was amazed. Nothing fancy, but worth sharing because I loved making them with him. ❤

These cards are all made with Paper Smooches Cuteasaurus set! ❤ I colored the first card with Prismacolor colored pencils, and the one below with Copic Markers. That was super tricky, because I stamped these on basic white cardstock. Well, I am blender and bleeder when it comes to Copics, so I was surprised that these did not turn out completely awful! 🙂 (I normally use Copic blending card.)

For this card, because the Dinosaur needs to face the other way too, you need the mirror image. For this, you can use Paper Smooches’ Mirror Blocks. I was a little distracted, so I didn’t get a super clean image when I stamped it in reverse. No biggie though, because you can go back and fill in with a fine tip black pen! Yay! 🙂

This sentiment is from the July set Body Language. 🙂 Perfect with the googley eyes, of course. 🙂

Here is a photo that includes the ones my son made. He does all his own stamping, and that includes trying to get ALL THE STAMPS on one card! Haaaaa! ❤ It is seriously the cutest thing to this 100% biased Mom. He then uses my Copics & Zig Clean Color markers. Because why would he use any of his dozen coloring implements? LOL!!

I love that he made the dinosaurs and drew in his own heart! 🙂 He also thought the little Kidneys were potatoes, so he ran with that. I was cracking up!! They can definitely be potatoes, right? ❤

He spent a lot of time coloring these and then gave it to Dad. (I hope i get the Dinos….shhhh! 🙂 ) I adore how they turned out.


For this next card, I used Paper Smooches Falling for You set, and coordinating Falling for You Dies. I also used the Cardbooking dies for the speech bubble fun!

I made this background a long while back, and it was sitting on my desk. But I’m fairly certain I used Orange and Yellow Distress Inks and blended those on. 🙂 I colored the bat with Copics.

Thanks for stopping in! I’ll see you tomorrow for Paper Smooches Pep Rally week–sneak peeks for the new release!! eeeeeeee! 🙂

Love Monster

Happy Fourth of July!

If you haven’t seen it all, Paper Smooches July release is available HERE! And it’s goooood! 🙂

Today I am popping in to share this cutie little Monster Love card I made for our son! I’m trying to build up a small stash of ❤ 🙂 cards for him.

For this card, I used Paper Smooches Falling for You set, and coordinating Falling for You Dies. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this little monster, and I know my son will too! I also used Paper Smooches Balloons Dies, that I have had for what seems like forever. Faves! ❤

I colored the lil’ monster with Copic markers. For the background, I used Faded Jeans Oxide ink and a little mini stencil I have had for years! I really like breaking out stash stuff and using it! 🙂

Thanks for stopping in! Have a safe evening all!
