because nice matters

Happy Sunday! I hope your day is a great one! I still need to finish my Father’s Day cards…yikes!

I wanted to hop in and share this cutie bear card using the new Paper Smooches Kind Bear Die and the Kindness Sampler! ❀ How fantastic is this sentiment? And how true?  I didn’t think ahead about photographing this one, so the white on white was not a brilliant choice in that regard. However, in person, it looks good! πŸ™‚


I also used the Rose Frame Die and Harlequin Die (dry embossed) for the background. I think it made the perfect frame for this cutie! πŸ™‚

I used colored cardstocks to make the bear, but I also used Copic markers to color his flower. I coated a few bits with Glossy Accents and added some stitching too.

All of the new Paper Smooches June release can be found HERE! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!!  πŸ™‚

Here’s my card!

I see this, and I SMILE! Oh my word, this cactus!! And this sentiment! ❀

This die is the forthcoming Cactus Die and the sentiment is from the soon to be released, Kindness Sampler. That’s right, the “Kindness Sampler”. Gah! ❀

I adore Kim’s little smiling creations! Each time I receive them, I squeal! Just so fun!
Also, on this card, I used the previously released Super Star Dies and the Cross Stitch Die. (I posted another card I made with the cross stitch die HERE.) I blended on a few distress inks, and then embossed this card with the Cross Stitch die. I added the star strip, Cactus, and stamped the sentiment. I finished it off with stitching the panel onto the card base, adding a few sequins, and getting it ready to mail! πŸ™‚

Next stop: The multi- talented Karin Akesdotter! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by today! I can’t wait to share more of the fun Paper Smooches products this coming month! Have a great weekend!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚
