Today, I’m sharing a card showing off the new Stackers Stencil! You can make a rainbow!!! As you can see here, because I essentially make four little ones!! 🙂 This stencil is FULL of things to stencil on your projects–so so fun! 🙂
I used the previously release Monster Dies and Flaunters Dies to complete this card with the fun background!  🙂
For making this project, I just masked off the parts of the stencil I didn’t want to ink and blended on inks with my favorite blender brushes. I use post-it notes generally to just mask things off, quick and easy!
I feel like I have barely scratched the surface with this stencil!! 🙂 I hope to be back again soon to show more projects with it! 🙂

Paper Smooches: Stackers Stencil. (This will be available tomorrow.)

I’m looking forward to sharing all the October goodness in the coming weeks!!

Thanks for joining us today!!

I Only Have Eye for You

Happy weekend! I am behind on sharing my Paper Smooches card this week! I’ve been so busy and preoccupied, I didn’t even realize my post didn’t post. You know things are out of sorts when…

How adorable is this Monster!!? I cannot handle him and his one adorable googley eye!! ❤

This is going in my son’s lunchbox next week. We are celebrating his birthday all weekend long, and I know he’s going to be a in post birthday funk later this week. 🙂 Oh to be a kid! ❤

Hoping to Make You Smile!

Happy Friday! WE made it! Hooooooray!! 🙂 This Paper Smooches card is perfectly fitting for a day like today.  😉

I completely adore these Monster Dies from Paper Smooches and cannot ever use them enough. I mean, this little guy is sure to make someone smile. The teeth and then the added googley eyes!? Too funny. There are silly eye combos you can make with the dies in the set too, so the possibilities are endless there.

The dotted background was fun to make. I die cut the Deco Edge dies multiple times with multiple colors. Then I laid down the strips and glued in the dots to each little area, careful to try to not glue the strip itself down. It worked great to keep everything evenly spaced.

Paper Smooches Monsters!

Hello all! I’m popping in with some super fun Monster cards from Paper Smooches September release! You can find all the new products HERE. 

I try not to pick favorites, but obviously these little guys have made their way to the top of my list! 🙂 These are the new Monster Dies! This first photo is a stack of Thank You notes I made for my son’s birthday! Eeeeeep! He filled out the insides (so diligently too! wow!) and I made the outsides. 🙂 Teamwork! He usually colors his own, but I like to try to get them out in a timely fashion, and we were behind this year. 🙂 These were pretty quick and easy, and I think they turned out SO fun! 🙂

This next little number, I made to put in his lunchbox today. ❤

Such a little cutie monster! 🙂

For both the cards above, I used Paper Smooches Huge Hugs 2 for the sentiments. Such a great set!

Oh, and also one of my favorite PS Tags, For You Tag die. 🙂

And last but not least, I thought I’d share this card again, in case you missed the DT Hop. Gah! Such fun!

These new dies are called Monster Dies and the sentiment is from the new Halloween Sampler.

Have a great weekend!!

Take care- Jill 🙂

Are you ready? I literally yelped when I saw this cuuuuutie!!! Oh my word! 🙂 They make me so happy!
I cut them out of fun foam, and I wasn’t sure about the “textured” look that occurred. However my son, who ❤ ❤ ❤ these guys, liked it because “she is furry”! So, hey, I ran with it! 🙂
And of course, added a GIANT googley eye to each! 🙂 I laugh all over again! I mean, “I only have eye for you”. I can’t EVEN! ❤ ❤ ❤
