Have a Nice Day!

Happy Friday the 13th to you! I thought this was a fun idea to make a Paper Smooches card with a chicken inside the TV! πŸ™‚ Haaaaa!

I stamped and masked the TV (to stamp the chicken inside) and then colored the TV and chicken with Copic Markers. I cut the flower frame from patterned paper and added some stitching to it and the card base after scoring. Stitching is also the best kind of “glue”! πŸ˜‰Paper Smooches products: Wake Up, Boob Tubes + Dies, Word Bubbles, Flower Frame Dies.

Hugs

Happiest Friday to you!! πŸ™‚ Today, I’m here to share a fun little ray of sunshine –a sweet little Paper Smooches card. πŸ˜‰

Oh my word–I ❀ the adorableness of this cute little bear hugging duo! I colored them with Copic Markers and die cut them out. I used Distress Inks to blend on color to a white sheet of cardstock before die cutting the Power Rays. The yellow Power Rays are cut from yellow cardstock. I adhered the bears and the die cut letters to the whole number and did some quick stitching. I finished off this sweet card with a few clear Nuvo drops. I like how they take on the background color and looked colored themselves! πŸ™‚

Paper Smooches goodies used: Comforting Hugs + Dies, Power Rays, Sassy Letters Dies.

Happy New Beginnings!

It’s been another busy week and another survival of the stomach flu. I’m glad it’s Friday! Hooray!

I’m popping in today sharing another super fun Paper Smooches card. πŸ˜‰ I just ❀ how this came out using Paper Smooches sets: Promenade and dies,Β Bitty Bunglalows and dies and the sentiment is from New Beginnings 2. I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and die cut them all out.

For this card, I just masked off a section of the panel and blended on some Distress Oxide inks. I’m not a big purple person, but my goal was to use it a few times this year, and I think I’ve now met that goal and can quit. Haaaaa! But seriously, I thought this turned out fun!

Such a perfect card to send a friend for her new adventure! ❀

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Toadally Dude

Happy day to you! Today I’m sharing a Toadally fun Paper Smooches card. πŸ˜‰ I kept this card VERY simple, which is both easy and difficult. I’m sure you can relate if you make cards too.

How fun are these dudes?! I stamped and masked and stamped and masked. I colored them all with Copic Markers in very slightly different ways and added some Glossy Accents to their spots to polish them off before stitching them on.

 

I thought it would be fun to add a punny sentiment, of course. For this card, the little toads are from A Little Lovin, the *Toadally*is from the great punny set Critter Card Puns and the *dude* is from Slang Gang…. Slang Gang was one of my first Paper Smooches sets and it still gets a lot of <3.

Be sure to follow the Paper Smooches Blog for lots of inspiration on how to you mix and match your Paper Smooches stash! I’ve really been enjoying using all the things! πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Happy St. Pat’s!

Oh my word! This card is a favorite! πŸ™‚ I just think this combo is a delight! ❀ how this came together!

For the background of this card, I masked an area and just blended on some Distress Oxide Inks and added some spatters. Seems to be my 2018 thing to do. πŸ˜‰ I added the little Wavy Pattern hill and my Copic colored little astronaut and dino. I finished it all off with the Teeny Stars, stamped sentiment and stitching. Eeeeeep! Just love it so! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used these fun Paper Smooches products: Space Cadet, Huge Hugs, Huge Hugs Icon dies, Wavy Pattern dies, Teeny Star dies, Magical Sampler.

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!
