Stand Tall!

Happy Friday!!

If you are looking for my post for the Paper Smooches May DT Hop that began yesterday, please scroll down, or click HERE.

I’m here today to share this perky little number, made with April’s release of awesomeness! This card has the Paper Smooches Pineapple 1 Die and the fun Pineapple Crush 2 stamp set! This release just makes me smile! โค

I think this sentiment rocks, so I ROYGBIV’d it up, and stamped it repeatedly in a Stand Tall pattern. ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course, then I added some googley eyes. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love the smiling pineapple!

Also, for the pattern on the pineapple, I used the Pineapple Crush stamp set.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead! I’m hoping to get a lot done myself! Yikes!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used the soon to be released, New Beginnings stamp set! This set has an awesome variety of stamps to celebrate special and everyday occasions. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was so happy how this turned out! Honestly, I was afraid it was going to be a mess, but in the end, I โค it!! ๐Ÿ™‚ This rose is fantastic in its simplicity, for people like me.

I watercolored these with my Zig markers and added a “few” little pixels in after it was all dry.

Hope you are excited for the release too! I can’t wait to make some more things myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

let’s mix it up!

Happy Friday!! I’m a little behind on most things this week, but I wanted to pop in and share this cool pineapple card, using the new Paper Smooches Pineapple 2 die! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also used the new Cross Stitch Die to create this monocramatic background with lots of texture! ๐Ÿ™‚ Big fan of this die, and I did some actual crossstitching with it…coming soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For his cool glasses, I cut all the strips and adhered them down before die cutting the glasses. โค the happy face! ๐Ÿ™‚

This sentiment is from the uber fun Pineapple Crush 2 stamp set, and again this AWESOME pineapple is the new Pineapple 2 Die.

I hope to be back again this weekend! In the meantime, I hope you get a chocolate bunny delivered to you! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Once again, Paper Smooches sentiments do not fail to delight! This Thank You is from the new forthcoming Pineapple Crush 2 stamp set and this AWESOME pineapple is the new Pineapple 2 Die. Ooooo it’s fun! I love this typeface and its bold statement, perfect for repeated linear stamping! โค
I was definitely sweating as I got further along with this stamping and then when I was done, I die cut it! Ahhhhhh the panic! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ It turned out–phew!

Be sure to hop along everywhere here today. Can’t wait to see what everyone else has whipped up! ๐Ÿ™‚
