Thank You!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas earlier this week! I’m certain I could take a long winter nap now. Ha! Instead, I’m here today sharing a sweet Paper Smooches card. I thought it was now the season for all things *Thank You*! ❤

I love how all these cute Paper Smooches elements worked together to create a sweet scene of wintry gratitude. ❤

I die cut and assembled everything and then added the sentiment and stitching. I debated using a stencil on the card panel, but I decided to keep it clean and crisp instead.

Whale, Hello

It’s Friday! And that means a new Paper Smooches card! 😉

For this card, I scored the pink card panel and then die cut the Flower Frame out, adhering it back in with some tape behind it. I then die cut the Wavy Pattern die with two different cardstocks and pieced that together on the card base, adding some simple stitching when done with that. I stamped the whale with a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad and die cut him out. Stamping the sentiment on a small piece of cardstock, I trimmed it out and adhered everything down with some foam tape, adding some small staples to finish it all off. ❤

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! 🙂 I just think this combo is a delight! ❤ 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. 😉 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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!
