Wish Big

Hooray for Friday!

Today I’m sharing a card I made with the new Magical Sampler stamp set from Paper Smooches! When I finished this card, I did a little happy squeak! I just think it turned out so fun! πŸ™‚

These little lights are from the new Wavy Wishes set and coordinating icon dies HERE. I colored them with Copic Markers, added Glossy Accents, and adhered with silver thread and foam adhesive.

One of my favorite images for the holidays are these types of Christmas lights. But aren’t they fun to repurpose for the rest of the year? ❀

This awesome frame is the Rose Frame die. I use it ALL THE TIME! πŸ™‚ I finished this card off with some simple stitching. πŸ™‚ A lovely little birthday card!

Happy Friday! If you are hopping along for the August Paper Smooches Pep Rally, please find my post for that HERE! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


Today, I’m sharing a card I created using Paper Smooches Religious Words 2 Dies. I paired it with the Silhouette Flower DiesΒ  and the Rose Frame Die. These flowers are sooooo up my alley! Silhouette flowers can be used in MANY ways and make things pretty so simply. Love that! πŸ™‚

Yup, the Rose Frame Die is used often around here! ❀

When I was making this, I kept taking away flowers and adding flowers and taking them away. In the end, I like how this moderately heavy mix worked together. πŸ™‚ I die cut the word “hope” from white a few times, and then once from navy to pop it on top.

Just a quick reminder: If you haven’t checked out the Paper Smooches August Pep Rally, be sure to start at the beginning HERE. You can comment along the way for chances to win! πŸ™‚ Who doesn’t love a Paper Smooches Gift Card?!

because nice matters

Happy Sunday! I hope your day is a great one! I still need to finish my Father’s Day cards…yikes!

I wanted to hop in and share this cutie bear card using the new Paper Smooches Kind Bear Die and the Kindness Sampler! ❀ How fantastic is this sentiment? And how true?  I didn’t think ahead about photographing this one, so the white on white was not a brilliant choice in that regard. However, in person, it looks good! πŸ™‚


I also used the Rose Frame Die and Harlequin Die (dry embossed) for the background. I think it made the perfect frame for this cutie! πŸ™‚

I used colored cardstocks to make the bear, but I also used Copic markers to color his flower. I coated a few bits with Glossy Accents and added some stitching too.

Take a Deep Breath

Happy Friday! I’m here to share a card using the NEWΒ Paper SmoochesΒ MAY 2017 release. For this card, I used the new Rose Frame Die and the new stamp set, New Beginnings 2!

This die: ❀ .

I die cut the whole Rose Frame die from several different colors of cardstock, and then pieced it all back together.

I just love how this makes such a clean card. This frame is awesome. When you receive this die, you just need to cut out the flower and boom, you have a frame die. Bonus! Get ready, because you are going to see this frame around these parts A LOT! πŸ™‚

I made another card with some of the scraps I had from the first:

Gah! These are so fun to make. I love die-cut inlay! It’s like putting a little crafty puzzle together. πŸ™‚ Afterward, I coated this in clear colorful Stickles. In person, it is a sparkly delight! πŸ™‚

I also used the new diecut, Mr. and Mrs. for this card. Kim makes the BEST handwritten dies! I love them ALL! This die can whip up a quick wedding/shower/anniversary card in no time! Not that I have ever made such cards with one foot out the door… πŸ˜‰

Be sure you following the Paper Smooches blog everyday, as the rest of the team has made amazing things you don’t want to miss! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
