Peppermint Season!

Happy Peppermint Season friends! It is sort of a running joke for me to lament Pumpkin Spice season and long for Peppermint Season –haaaa! It’s finally officially ok to declare it so! Bwaaahaaahaaa! I thought I’d celebrate with a fun Paper Smooches card!

I love alphabet sets and Paper Smooches has some of my faves.  You can make any sentiment you want! ❤

I’m hoping to mail this card to my peppermint loving friend before this posts. ❤ I hope she gets a kick out of it too!

Thank You

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m here sharing a new Paper Smooches card. I can never ever have enough Thank You cards ready to roll! 🙂

I die cut everything and adhered it down, and then die cut the die cuts to complete the card. I also did some embossing with the cross stitch die before adding some final stitching to the panel. 🙂

I thought this turned out so bright and cheerful! 🙂

Hello… Friday!

Are  you ready for the weekend? I am! Though I have lots to do, so I probably shouldn’t be–haaaaa!

Today I’m sharing a card using the NEW Paper Smooches Tiny Stars! OH my stars! I love how festive this shaker turned out! 🙂 You cannot beat having this little die around for stars o’plenty!

For the frame I used Paper Smooches Postage Stamp dies. The background is the new Stitched Square Die. (I dry embossed that. Those dies are probably my favorite for doing embossing! Perfect texture 🙂 ) The Hello is another favorite die from PS (Layered Hello Die), because you can use just one *hello* or layer it! 😉

I hope you have had a minute to check out all the new stitching dies from Paper Smooches!
