Some Weekend Cute!

Happy Weekend All! ๐Ÿ™‚

I meant to post yesterday, but instead, I’m here today! I am so excited to share this first card! I love this little Doodle! Eeep! The cuteness!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my word! โค him! ๐Ÿ™‚ This sentiment is from PS’s awesome Kindness Sampler.

Another card I made with Dinky Doodles. For these cards, I used both Paper Smooches Dinky Doodles 1 and Dinky Doodles 2.

I thought the TREmendous sentiment from Paper Smooches Huge Hugs 2 set worked perfectly and punfully! ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I used the newer Flower Frames dies!ย I have those die cuts all over my desk right now. All. Over! Haaaa!

And last but not least, I thought I’d share the anniversary card I made for my hubby this weekend!

I made this background with watercolors WEEKS ago and then it just sat on my desk. I masked off this wonky frame and I’m pretty darn sure I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors (I can’t imagine what else that is? LOL!). They are still super awesome in my book. ๐Ÿ™‚ I colored the birds with Zig Clean Color markers.

This cute little bird set is PS’s Feathered Friends (and dies) and the I Love You die is a great staple for anyone’s stash! <3!

All the new Paper Smooches can be found over at theย  PS online store!

Have an awesome weekend!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Popping in to share a card I made with Paper Smooches new Flower Frame dies and the previously released stamp sets, Kindness Sampler and Best Buds! The combo makes such a sweet card! ๐Ÿ™‚
I stamped the card base with the little flower stamps from the Best Buds set.
I watercolored these flowers with my Zig clean color markers. I cannot decide if I need any more colors of those or not. Some I have are so similar, they are almost the same? LOL
For another way to use these frames, check my previous post HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for the Paper Smooches Pep Rally โค !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my fun projects to share today!
Eeeeeep! How awesome are these new Flower Frames Dies?! I made these cards before I trimmed the dies apart, and look at the bonus coolness you get!
I have since trimmed them apart, and therefore now have three fun little frames and this adorable heart! I love this heart. (I’m kinda picky about hearts and I definitely โค this โค !) ha!
The fantastic part about these cards is, when you die cut the Flower Frame Dies like this from several different cardstocks, you can piece them together for quick cards! I’ll probably have about four-five cards from this one die cut lot. Love that! ๐Ÿ™‚
These sentiments are both from Paper Smooches’ Kindness Sampler. Fantastic set full of ๐Ÿ™‚ sentiments!

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! โค 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! ๐Ÿ™‚


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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my card!

I see this, and I SMILE! Oh my word, this cactus!! And this sentiment! โค

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! โค

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next stop: The multi- talented Karin Akesdotter! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
