School Love

Happy Fri-YAY right? I’m not sure how I feel about that term, but I was writing Friday and Hooray, so went for it! πŸ˜‰

For these cutie Paper Smooches cards today, I used the following Paper Smooches: Smarty Pants and Dies, Notebook Basic Die, andΒ  Cuteasauras.

I colored all these with Copic Markers and added them to the Notebook die.

Eeeep so cute! I love when something simple turns out so awesomely sweet! πŸ™‚

This last one lost it’s crayon. I’m not sure if I didn’t color enough or if someone small who lives here nabbed it before I put it on a card! Haaa! πŸ™‚

I just love that little inch worm! And the pencil, of course! Easily some of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps–but I bet I say often, don’t I? Just ❀ PS! πŸ™‚
I cannot wait to give these to my son and his teacher. πŸ™‚
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Today’s card is made with the May released Grad Cap Card Die fromΒ  Paper Smooches. I also used the New Beginnings 2 stamp set. It’s packed with great sentiments!

I ❀ that sentiment, “Bask in Your Awesomeness”!! Perfect! πŸ™‚ This die set makes this fun tassel, which I think can be used in a variety of ways, outside of tassel making!

These fun sunglasses are from the Pineapple 2 die set. Love. Them.

I thought this was a fun nod to how graduates put tape on their caps to say “Hi Mom” etc. Do they still do this? Ha! I don’t think I ever did because I feel like we received our attire late in the game? Hmmmm… You’d think I’d remember my graduations. Nope. Ha! I think I was exhausted πŸ™‚

Check out the Paper Smooches blog for more fun, and stay in the loop on the upcoming release and current challenge! I love the PS Challenges! Always have. πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!

Yay!

Hey hey! Happy Friday! Happy Early Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating this weekend!

Today’s card is made with this fun new set from the Paper SmoochesΒ MAY release. For this card, I used the New Beginnings stamp set (that elephant ❀ !) and the New Beginnings Icons Dies!

I mean, goodness, he’s cute! πŸ™‚

For this card, I just masked off these rays/stripes and blended on some Distress Inks. I can’t recall for sure, but I’m guessing I used Carved Pumpkin and Spiced Marmalade? I colored this cutie elephant with Copic markers, and heat embossed this sentiment from the same stamp set. I adhered all the mortarboards and drew on tassels. I added some white spatters afterward to give it a celebratory feel–pow! I thought this one was fun to highlight your graduate!

Plus, I went to the University of Illinois for my undergrad degree, so I had to use the Orange and Blue. Go Illini! πŸ˜‰

Next up, I thought I’d share this sweet little card using the same stamp set.

I kept this one very simple with just some stamping, vellum, and stitching. I love these simple cards! πŸ™‚

Be sure you’re following the Paper Smooches blog, and please stop by here again! I’ll be back with more cards to share this month, and I”m hoping I get those posts written soon! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
