Happy Thoughts

Hooray for Friday! I’m here today sharing this Paper Smooches card that is smothered in Fall! Fall is my favorite! I love the start of fall the best, and then when all the colors start falling off and become mucky wet piles, I am sad to see it go. I’ve tried to capture them here! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut the leaves several times from different colored cardstocks. I also die cut the waves and stamped the sentiment in black. Then I adhered the Wavy Wishes down, before I added the leaves and stitching to finish this card off.

Don’t forget the Paper Smooches Blog is full of inspiration all week long!

Thank you for stopping by–have a wonderful weekend!

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.

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards using Paper Smooches August released UNICORN DIE! That’s right, Unicorn Die. I die. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL! I also used the Magical Sampler stamp set and Flower Frames dies for this first card. Eeeeeep! Magical! ๐Ÿ™‚

For my first card, I embraced the unicorn and all her rainbowness! ๐Ÿ™‚ (<—- Yup, that’s a word. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

And of course, I had to add a googley eye, but take care not to cover up her eyelashes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

For this next card, I took another route using the same die. Kim is always thinking, and made the unicorn’s alicorn separate, so you can create a horse, or a zebra, or whatever your crafty heart desires. โค that!!

I used Distress Inks for the background and made a sparkly little grass patch for this fun horse to stand on. The leaves are from the Wavy Wishes set. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think this little Unicorn die will be used a lot around here, making birthday cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hooray for Friday!

Today I’m sharing a card I made with the new Magical Sampler stamp set from Paper Smooches! When I finished this card, I did a little happy squeak! I just think it turned out so fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

These little lights are from the new Wavy Wishes set and coordinating icon dies HERE. I colored them with Copic Markers, added Glossy Accents, and adhered with silver thread and foam adhesive.

One of my favorite images for the holidays are these types of Christmas lights. But aren’t they fun to repurpose for the rest of the year? โค

This awesome frame is the Rose Frame die. I use it ALL THE TIME! ๐Ÿ™‚ I finished this card off with some simple stitching. ๐Ÿ™‚ A lovely little birthday card!
