You’re My Universe

Another week has wooooshed on by this summer! I’m convinced they are picking up steam each week we near closer to the start of school.

I’m popping in today to share this fun little Paper Smooches card I made with some fun little dudes!.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

My son’s favorite color is orange, so every opportunity I get to sneak in some orange, I do it. ๐Ÿ™‚ And it may or may not be one of my favorites too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m working on stocking up my stash of cute little cards for his lunchbox this year. โค

I stamped that little guy in the spaceship by first masking it off. Then I colored everything with Copic markers. I diecut out some simple circles and added some gold stars. I finished off the card with some simple scoring and some stitching. ๐Ÿ™‚

You Are a Rare Find!

Hello and happy ALMOST weekend! I’m off having an awesome time with some crafty friends today, but thought I’d pop in to share one SUPER FUN Paper Smooches card!

Oh my word! This card is a favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just think this combo is a delight! โค how this came together!

For the background of this card, I masked an area and just blended on some Distress Oxide Inks and added some spatters. Seems to be my 2018 thing to do. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I added the little Wavy Pattern hill and my Copic colored little astronaut and dino. I finished it all off with the Teeny Stars, stamped sentiment and stitching. Eeeeeep! Just love it so! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used these fun Paper Smooches products: Space Cadet, Huge Hugs, Huge Hugs Icon dies, Wavy Pattern dies, Teeny Star dies, Magical Sampler.

I am really looking forward to tucking this one into my son’s lunchbox one day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!
