Fun & Festive from Simon Says Stamp!

There is a Fun & Festive new release  available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE. I used the new Christmas Wishes sentiment set today to make these tags and this card! 🙂

For these tags, I white heat embossed the sentiment on card stock and then cut little strips of paper to add-on. I grabbed some tags from my stash and stitched them on there. 🙂 White heat embossing is always my go-to for fun holiday cards/tags. I love that POP of white on red or kraft!

These tags are perfects to attach on packages or I can always add them to a card front! 🙂

For this card, I also added some Paper Smooches goodies on there. Paper Smooches: Teeny Stars, Holiday Sweets, and Tagged Stitched. ❤

Love this sentiment!

Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this release! ❤ It’s chock full of holiday cardmaking fun! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care–Jill

Paper Smooches Flower Frames

Happy Friday! Things are ramping up around here as we cram in the last bits of summer before school starts. It’s another full day today! 🙂 All good things!

Today I’m sharing these little tags I made with Paper Smooches new Flower Frame dies and the previously released stamp set, New Beginnings 2! They are brown and yellow, and look more fall/”sunflowery” in person! Ha!
(This tag is Paper Smooches Tag Stitched dies. <3)
I LOVE these frames, and I actually will probably use them more as frames. However,  I thought it was fun to use them as centerpieces on these tags and my previous cards HERE. 🙂 I think they are fun to stand on their own! 🙂

Check out all the new Paper Smooches goodies HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT weekend!

Take care- Jill 🙂

Here is a trio of card I made with the new Body Language stamp set and icons dies! I think these are so dang funny!!
I watercolored this little gut with my Zig Clean Color markers and die cut them out. I popped them on these fun tags I cut from patterned paper (yay!) using Paper Smooches’ Tag Stitched Die. To finish them off, I reverse scored these cards and boom good to go! 🙂
I just think this stamp set is a RIOT! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!

A Ear-y Twist & Dinos! :)

I thought I would use the new Paper Smooches Dog die in a different way too: Ears or mountains?! Haaaa!
I had this one in my head and had to get it out! I also used the Huge Hugs! Seriously, this Dino: ❤ ❤ ! I colored the Dino with Copic markers and gave him and his balancing hearts some dimension with foam tape. I used my white pen to snow cap the mountains.jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs_00
For this card, I also used bits from the following: Heart Frame Die, Feathered Friends Icon dies, and Snowdrifts dies.
Here are a few more Dino-mite cards to enjoy using the new Dinosaur Die! Once I started, I couldn’t stop using him/her! 🙂
This one also uses the Tag Stitched die. This little guy is Wild! He is riding the Bicycle die 🙂Also, the sentiment is from the new Huge Hugs 2 set. ❤ Paper Smooches sentiments! Of course, I had to make this little cutie a girl too! 🙂 This is made with the Love Word 2 die, Heart Frame die, and the Dainty Flowers 2 die.
She is too cute!! Eeeep! I love the navy and pink together.

You will find all the new Paper Smooches products HERE.  

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a Dino-mite weekend!! 🙂
