For my card today, I used the super-fun-soon-to-be-released Snowman Card Die!!

I know this is confusing because it is the Snowman Card Die and this is clearly a penguin, but somehow that was the first thing I made! 🙂 I think the carrot nose got stuck under something and the rest is history. 🙂 I think it’s fun to see other things dies can do too.

Eeeeeeep! Isn’t he super cute?! I have snowman bits all over my desk, so I will be sharing an actual snowman next month as well. 😉

Also, for this card, I used the soon to be released All Year Cheer for this simple sentiment. This forthcoming set is one of those sets you can use all year round! I also used the previously released Santa Card dies for his hat, and the Sweets Dies for his pom-pom! Yup, that cupcake worked swimmingly! 😉

I overhung his hat and scarf, but the card is slightly narrow overall, so this should easily fit into an envelope I have on hand. More likely however, this will be on a package delivery for the Holidays! 

Next stop on our Paper Smooches Pep Rally Hop:  Karin Akesdotter! 🙂 Karin’s projects are to never be missed! ❤

AND, we have something special to share…we partnered up with XYRON this week.

Our designers received Xyron adhesives to use on their October projects and Xyron’s design team were given Paper Smooches stamps to create with.  They are sharing their Paper Smooches cards on the their blogs this week. You can find them all HERE


For my project today, I used the super fun and festive new Paper Smooches Santa Card dies! Eeeeeeeeep! How cute is he?! 🙂 🙂

Bonus that we received Xyron adhesives to use on our projects this month! The Xyron sticker maker makes this Santa a breeze to piece together. I am always amazed when I peel up that plastic topper and BOOM: Sticker! Love. It. You can check out the Xyron Sticker Maker HERE. It’s a staple for a crafty stash. 😉

For Santa’s face, I decided it would be fun to use the Flower Frames dies. These Santa Card dies cut a larger beard to fill a card front, but I trimmed mine down to work on the Flower Frame. I added a little Liquid Applique to his hat brim and a huge pom-pom! 🙂 Oh what fun it is!

His cheeks are rosy!! 🙂 For the background, I used Paper Smooches Graffiti alpha set to create the repeated HO HO HO! Don’t you just love his bushy eyebrows?! ❤

I also used the Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere the larger elements and the panel to the card base. I am a fan of this tape runner because I don’t have to refill it nearly as often as I do some of my smaller runners. Big fan of that! Thank you for sharing your awesome stickiness with us this month Xyron! 😉
