Happy Friday! Sending along this cutie little card I popped into my son’s lunch box the other day. The googley eyes get him every time! Love me some fun Paper Smooches! ❤
How’s this for patterned paper use? Whoohooo! 🙂

Just popping in to share a Happy New Year greeting to everyone! Thank YOU for all your kindness in 2017! I sooooo enjoy making cards and sharing them, and I appreciate you taking the time to look and leaving me a smile too!
This Embroidery Hoop die is included in the forthcoming Paper Smooches January release and can be found HERE on January 3, 2018! Be sure to follow our January release hop HERE! 🙂
Other fun Paper Smooches goodies I used: All Year Cheer stamp set (sentiment), Pineapple Crush (bunny with pineapple) and coordinating dies HERE, Squeaky Clean (tiny dust bunny that I fussy cut 🙂 ), Mitten Die (tiny heart).
I colored the bunnies with Copic Markers. For the background, I used Distress Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber. Such fun! 🙂 I added some Wink of Stella to the bunnies and some Glossy Accents to the heart. ❤

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! ❤
I think this sentiment rocks, so I ROYGBIV’d it up, and stamped it repeatedly in a Stand Tall pattern. 🙂
Of course, then I added some googley eyes. 🙂 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!
Yay for May and all it brings! 🙂 Today is the Paper Smooches Design Team Hop to celebrate Paper Smooches May release! Buckle up! There are some new faves debuting soon!

On with my project!
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. 🙂
I was so happy how this turned out! Honestly, I was afraid it was going to be a mess, but in the end, I ❤ it!! 🙂 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! 🙂
Next stop: The way talented Karin Akesdotter! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
Take care- Jill 🙂
Hey hey, Happy Friday!! I thought I’d pop in and share some fun! 🙂
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 ❤ 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. 🙂
I finished off the card with a few sequins and some stitching. The debate I have over using sequins or no sequins is ongoing. 😛
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! 🙂
Take care- Jill 🙂
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! 🙂
I also used the new Cross Stitch Die to create this monocramatic background with lots of texture! 🙂 Big fan of this die, and I did some actual crossstitching with it…coming soon! 😉
For his cool glasses, I cut all the strips and adhered them down before die cutting the glasses. ❤ the happy face! 🙂
I hope to be back again this weekend! In the meantime, I hope you get a chocolate bunny delivered to you! 😉
Take care- Jill 🙂
