Let’s Giggle!

If you are looking for my Paper Smooches January Pep Rally post, please find that one HERE πŸ™‚

Happy Friday! I hope you are all recovered from great fun with family and friends! Now, round two ahead with New Year’s Celebrations! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m sharing the sweetest little Paper Smooches card using December’s release of Ribbon Dies and the Wine Sampler stamp set. I cannot stop giggling at this card, and I’m the one who made it! Is that wrong? πŸ™‚ !

The Wine Sampler has an array (and bountiful!) set of sentiments! “Let’s Giggle”– ❀ that sentiment!

Oh my goodness! I swear, I put glasses on anything and I’m a puddle of goo! πŸ™‚ Just the cutest!Β  These glasses are from the Pineapple 2 Die. The cute little trees themselves are Paper Smooches Evergreen Dies. And the little star is from the Super Star Dies. Super Star! (I can never resist saying that Mary Catherine Gallagher style. πŸ˜‰ )

I die cut the trees from solid cardstock and patterned paper and pieced them together. I added some Distress Ink to create a little blotted background before adding the trees, their googley eyes, and their accoutrements. πŸ™‚ Gah! ❀ how this makes me πŸ™‚ !

Happy Monday…I hope!

I thought I’d pop in with a few Paper Smooches cards I’ve made recently. I just ❀ my Paper Smooches stash!

This first card uses the new Baby Birds stamps and dies, of course. Because seriously, this set is the cutest thing on my desk! πŸ˜‰ The timing of this set was also perfect because I needed this sentiment to make and mail a card to my sweet friend.

I also used the Pineapple 2 die and the Deco Edges dies. Eeeeep! This is the cutest little bird! πŸ™‚ (We joined Page Maps this month and you can check out that HERE. I used the sketch they sent me to make this card–FUN!!)

This next one I intended to share on Taco Tuesday, but let’s celebrate today, Ok? Everyday is a good day for a taco, after all. πŸ™‚

Oh my word! How fantastic is this taco from Paper Smooches Calorie Free set! Pssst grab this set before it’s gone! πŸ˜‰

I don’t have the coordinating dies, so I just fussy cut out this little Copic colored taco and gave him some googley eyes, of course. πŸ™‚ So fun and PERFECT to send my taco loving friend! πŸ™‚

Next up, I used Paper Smooches Garden Greetings stamp set and dies. Eeeeeep! I LOVE this bee! I needed some Thank You cards and found myself coloring tulips. In November. LOL. πŸ˜‰

I colored these and die cut them out. I added some Wink of Stella glittery shine and some Glossy Accents over that. I scored some little card pieces and cut the edges with the new Deco Edges die. Although, I see in these photos it’s hard to see either of those details too good!?

The new-goodness-filled Paper Smooches November release is available HERE! ❀

Thanks for stopping by again and for all the kind comments I have received here lately…and always, for that matter! So kind of you all! ❀

Have an awesome week!

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!
