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.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the weekend!!  πŸ™‚

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!
