Are you ready for the weekend? I am looking forward to it.
You can check out all the new Paper Smooches ♥️ HERE. It’s nice to still feel like summer with this fresh release!
This is the great new stencil Succulent Stencil. I love that it is super large and can fill a card in a snap! This sweet sentiment is from the new Posh Planters stamps (matching dies Posh Planters dies). 🙂
I blended on some inks, actually super fast, because I just wanted to try this stencil. Ha! And then I really liked it, so I kept it and used it. Big win. I added some stitching to finish it all off. I went a little awry in a couple places, (don’t look too hard!), but I think it’s ok. 😉
Such a sweet card in the end!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend ahead!
Welcome to a fun extra post for Taylored Expressions May Mini Release! All the new products for this cute release are available over at Taylored Expressions now!
My first card features the NEW Little Monsters stamp set. These little guys are so silly!
eeeeep! How cutie are they? I made a fun and splashy watercolor background by adding water to the panel and then dropping Taylored Expressions watercolors on there.
I love the fun bright colors on this one! 🙂
My second card features the new Inky Fingers: Monsters set. I think these little fingerprint sets are the sweetest and so does our son! He’ll be getting inky sometime soon to make some cards for his Dad and Grandpas! 🙂
Love these little guys peeking out! I was intending to put google eyes on them, of course, and then forgot! ha! I am actually going to give this one to our son. shhhhh! 🙂
Both of these new sets are perfect for making Father’s Day cards, but I also completely enjoy that you can use them for any occasion or even for no occasion at all! 🙂 *Just Because* is my favorite occasion. 🙂

Happy Monday! We received quite a lot of snow this past weekend! I thought I’d pop in here and shake it up a bit with a Taylored Expressions card!
The only thing better than a shaker card is a rainbow shaker card!! Love these little shaker bits from TE…they are called Hello Sunshine Shaker Filling–too fun!!

Happy Freezing Friday here in the Midwest! buuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrr!
Let’s warm it up with some ❤ !
This is Paper Smooches new In Stitches stamp set! It is such a sweet set!
I stamped the LOVE in three different colors, and then die cut some Paper Smooches hearts. I inked those with the same ink pads I stamped with. After that, I finished off the hearts with a little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.
I also used my scoring board to create an embossed frame around the words. Then I finished that panel off with some stitching.
I hope you all have a warm and cozy weekend ahead! Be sure to check out the Paper Smooches Blog HERE. I think I saw a giveaway? Wink wink 😉
Take care- Jill 🙂
Happy Tuesday! I’m popping in to share this card I made a little while back. I used the Paper Smooches Cross Stitch Die. ❤ Very cool and VERSATILE die!!
I stitched this sentiment on a plane ride last month, and forgot to share my finished card! 🙂 I had some friends helping me pop out the holes in the cardstock. It is VERY easy to do, if you just drag your needle (or the like) across a row of dots. It also makes a fun noise–LOL! 🙂
After I stitched this LOVE, I die-cut a window in another black panel. I lined that window with sequins from my stash, and reverse scored the panel to add a little ooomph. I use this technique a lot, because it is quick and doesn’t add anything too distracting. I adhered the stitched panel behind, and popped the whole thing up with some fun foam.
I winged the stitching on this card, but it would go even faster if you had a plan/pattern before you start. Just sayin’ 🙂
The cross stitch die also is fantastic for subtle backgrounds. You can see how I used it for such on THIS card here.
I’ll be back Thursday with the Paper Smooches June DT hop! This upcoming release is sure to make you smile! 🙂
Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #275! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)Almost a literal take…almost 🙂 I stamped the flowers with watered down Distress Inks. Kind of a fun-little-something-different. Then I watercolored the background by mixing distress colors. I must get my hands on that Twisted Citron Distress Pad. 😉
This one is going postal today. ❤
My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Dienamics: Blueprints 24, Stitched Fishtail Flag STAX. Stamps: Build-able Blooms, Friends Like Us.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
