Magic Wishes

Happy Friday All! If you are looking for my Paper Smooches DT Pep Rally post, please click HERE.


Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards using Paper Smooches August released UNICORN DIE! That’s right, Unicorn Die. I die. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL! I also used the Magical Sampler stamp set and Flower Frames dies for this first card. Eeeeeep! Magical! ๐Ÿ™‚

For my first card, I embraced the unicorn and all her rainbowness! ๐Ÿ™‚ (<—- Yup, that’s a word. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

And of course, I had to add a googley eye, but take care not to cover up her eyelashes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For this next card, I took another route using the same die. Kim is always thinking, and made the unicorn’s alicorn separate, so you can create a horse, or a zebra, or whatever your crafty heart desires. โค that!!

I used Distress Inks for the background and made a sparkly little grass patch for this fun horse to stand on. The leaves are from the Wavy Wishes set. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think this little Unicorn die will be used a lot around here, making birthday cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wish Big

Hooray for Friday!

Today I’m sharing a card I made with the new Magical Sampler stamp set from Paper Smooches! When I finished this card, I did a little happy squeak! I just think it turned out so fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

These little lights are from the new Wavy Wishes set and coordinating icon dies HERE. I colored them with Copic Markers, added Glossy Accents, and adhered with silver thread and foam adhesive.

One of my favorite images for the holidays are these types of Christmas lights. But aren’t they fun to repurpose for the rest of the year? โค

This awesome frame is the Rose Frame die. I use it ALL THE TIME! ๐Ÿ™‚ I finished this card off with some simple stitching. ๐Ÿ™‚ A lovely little birthday card!

Fun Wavy Patterns!

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a couple fun cards I made with the freshly released Paper Smooches Wavy Patterns die and the versatile coordinating Wavy Wishes stamp set. These stamps fit right into the pattern the die creates, and you can mix up the sentiments. โค๏ธ! I have yet to crack the surface with possibilities! 
Love the movement! And these cutie birds that I colored  with Copics. 

This next card, I added an ombrรฉ happy whale from the Huge Hugs set. (I also used the coordinating dies for him.)
I really โค๏ธ the sentiment Happy Thoughts and am already planning to use it often. 

I made these cards weeks apart, and yet I used Distress Oxide Inks to blend on both backgrounds. Funny! The first one is Cracked Pistachio and the blue is Faded Jeans. They are fun to use! I’m pretty excited about the new, bright colors out, but am trying to wait on acquiring them. TRYING. Haaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished both cards off with a little stitching and a couple of bits. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you check out the new release from Paper Smooches!

Wishing you a happy day!

Happy August! Great news, the NEWย Paper Smoochesย AUGUST 2017 release is available HERE!ย 

I thought I’d pop in a share a card that made me laugh! I’m still waiting on my miracle to kick in this morning! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haaaaa! No seriously, I am! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚
For this card, I used the new Wavy Patterns Dies to emboss the panel. I then stamped this fun sentiment from the new Magical Sampler. I finished it off with a favorite die of mine, the Cozy Coffee Die. โค
Still makes me giggle!
