You Are My Sunshine!

Happy Friday! Before the Paper Smooches (very fun!) July Release debuts next week, I wanted to share one more card that is one of my favorites of the June Paper Smooches release available HERE! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used the new Sunnyville and Sunnyville icon dies! This little sun hugging this little cloud is just one of my faves of all time from Paper Smooches. It is soooo adorable! πŸ™‚ Kim has such a great way of designing these little cutie stamps! πŸ™‚

I mean really, could this be any sweeter? I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut them out, adhering with foam adhesive. (THISΒ is the foam tape I’ve been using a lot–very inexpensive!)

Paper Smooches: Sunnyille, Sunnyville Icon Dies, Flaunters. The rest of the new release is HERE!

As I mentioned, the new Paper Smooches July Release is next week! We are having our Design Team hop on July 6th–so be ready!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by today!

Take care–Jill 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™‚

New from Simon Says Stamp!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE. It’s called Fresh Bloom! I used the new Blossoming.

set today to make this card! πŸ™‚

Fresh Beginnings–Spring! Hooray for that! πŸ™‚

I stamped everything in Copic friendly ink so I could color that little bird in red and perch him on the tree. I wanted the swing to hang from this branch, but the strings weren’t long enough. So I just took a black pen and elongated those. πŸ™‚ I added some scoring and stitching to the card panel and adhered it all down. πŸ™‚

For this card, I also added the Paper Smooches Flaunters dies. ❀

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this release! Springtastic!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care–Jill
