Thank You, Favorite Human

We meet again! Yay! Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

This Friday’s Paper Smooches card is brought to you by these sweet little birds! Thank you Thank you Thank you! I stamped this background awhile back and it has been sitting on my desk to use for months. It finally got its day in the sun.

I colored these fun little birds with Copic Markers. Next, I die cut the notepad window for them and added some scoring lines. I then white heat embossed the sentiment strip and adhered everything down with foam tape. To polish it off, I added some stitching, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Such a sweet card to say Thank You to our favorite human! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut everything out, added some scoring to the panel and then stitched it all on. Love that little pineapple dude and his shades. โค

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™‚

Next stop: The way talented Karin Akesdotter! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

Live it up!

Hey hey, Happy Friday!! I thought I’d pop in and share some fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

This little bunny is just too sweet! This little guy and the pineapples are part of the new Paper Smooches stamp set, Pineapple Crush stamps and dies. The sentiment is from the new Pineapple Crush 2. Oh my word, I โค them both!

I blended distress inks on the background here and then flicked some water on. I colored the cute bunny with Copic markers and added a pom-pom tail. ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished off the card with a few sequins and some stitching. The debate I have over using sequins or no sequins is ongoing. ๐Ÿ˜›

The pineapples can be stamped in dozens of different ways, as there are lots of little stamp parts that you can use here and there.

That wraps it for now. Another busy weekend ahead here! I think this is just the beginning of a busy season, so I better begin to accept it! Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care- Jill 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™‚
