Good Morning to you! Today I am here sharing a fun Paper Smooches rainbow card! Ahhh rainbow! ❤

I thought this would be fun to white heat emboss the hexagons and then watercolor them in with Distress Inks. It turned out lovely in the end, I think. 🙂

Hooray for October! I just love Fall, but apparently was still in a summer mood when I made this Paper Smooches card. I

I made the background with some Distress Inks and water. While that was drying, I die cut the cityscape and the sentiments. I added some ink splats before adhering everything down and adding some stitching.

This rainbow watercolor look is always a fave of mine!! 🙂 I am looking forward to mailing this…or did I mail it already? Ha!! 🙂

A Cool Hello!

Happy Friday! WE made it! I thought I’d bring a little chill to our hot humid July air with a couple of cute snow people today! ❤

I hope these lil’ Paper Smooches snow peeps don’t melt.  😉

Paper Smooches goodies: Layered Hello Die, Cool Dudes, Cool Dudes dies, Kissables 2

I could not love these Cool Dudes more–my favorite snow people for sure! 🙂 I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut them out. I stamped the Kissables 2 with gray twice before die cutting out the Layered Hello die. I adhered them down with foam tape, then added some sequins and Nuvo drops for some snowy goodness. I polished off the card with some Glossy Accents and stitching. Just love this sweet trio! 🙂
