Rest and Refresh! NEW Release from SSS!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE— It’s called Rest and Refresh! I has the pleasure to use the sweet new Filigree Wreath.

I decided to make a “few” cards using this fun new wreath…figuring if I was going to die cut all these pieces, I might as well! I love to die cut inlay and I decided I need to watch some TV and zone out, so the combo worked out well. It’s like putting together a puzzle. The key is not lose any of the little bits–that is actually a bit tricky. 🙂

All the little bits add such detail, I kept the rest of these cards pretty simple from there.

Here it is in all green!

I kinda really dig the one color! 🙂

Here’s another very clean one. I’m not a big on adornments for Sympathy cards.

I was going to do all white, but decided to add this colored panel behind.

And lastly another colorful one:

I decided I’d make the dots black on this one, and I don’t think I used the correct pen unfortunately. I’m probably the only one who notices that though. 😉

I thought the lot of these turned out lovely and they are great for mailing because they are flat. This new Filigree Wreath die has so much detail and sweetness, I felt I could keep the rest very clean. ♥️

I used sentiments from the new Paper Smooches set Sunnyville and the previously released Sympathy Sampler. The “Be You” sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Rainbow Wishes.

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this fun NEW release!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday!

Take care–Jill

Heartfelt Condolences

Happy Friday to you! Hope you had a great week! Today, I’m here to share a NEW  Paper Smooches card! It is one of those cards I don’t enjoy making, so it’s best to make these ahead.

I wanted to create a soft and simple sympathy card, and the new Stemmed Roses die makes that smooth sailing. I combined this with the lovely Fab Frames die and found that was all I really needed. 🙂

I added a simple cloud background and some stitching to complete the card.

Happy Friday!!

I’m popping in with a Paper Smooches card. These are always the hardest to make, so I like to have them ready to go.

I colored these leaves very simply with Copic markers and added some stitching and scoring to finish it all off.

Hello!

Hooray! The November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! Oh goodness, super fun!

I thought I’d share this shaker card I made with two new goodies! The new Layered Hello Dies and Sympathy Sampler. The Sympathy Sampler works well for other things too. 😉

Eeeeep!I love that HELLO! Kim has the best writing! I haven’t made a shaker card in sooo long! So this was cool to do. 😉

Hope you enjoy your week! And Happy Halloween to those little trick or treaters! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
