Love You Loads, Mom!

We meet again–Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a super fun and perfectly fitting Paper Smooches card. πŸ˜‰ This card is ideal to give to my Mom on Mother’s Day (quickly approaching) or really anytime, for that matter. How many days in total did my Mom spend doing my laundry? Months? Years? Wow. ❀

For this card, I colored the fun Squeaky Clean Paper Smooches images with Copic Markers. (This little dust bunny has been a long time favorite of mine, so naturally, he had to hop in the laundry basket. πŸ˜‰ ) I used the Power Rays die negative as a stencil and blended on some Distress Oxide inks. I laugh at how the laundry is emitting power rays! πŸ™‚

I am always a fan of alphabet stamp sets and dies too. They allow you to make your cards say exactly what you need them to say. The heart on this is from the Little Lovin’ set. πŸ™‚

Paper Smooches: Squeaky Clean + Squeaky Clean Icon Dies, Alphadot, Mom Word Die, A Little Lovin‘, Power Rays.

But it is just a smattering of different watercolors, blended together. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_me melt_wmPaper Smooches : Cool Treats dies. The sentiment is from: Summer Sampler. (<–awesome set to have. Just sayin’. πŸ™‚ ) I used the Smiley Face from Check this Out. The little Heart on her Popsicle head is from the Mom Word die. The cute little tie is from the Freezy Fella stamp set. The heart is from the Bees dies. It’s cards like these that make you realize how many fun goodies you have to pull from. πŸ™‚
