Paper Smooches So Cute Fairy and Tooth Fairy dies

Today I’m sharing a card using new So Cute Fairy stamp set and coordinating dies. She was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, E00, E01, E11, E13, E31, E35, E37, R00, R01, R83, R85, RV32, Y21, YR23; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen; clear Wink of Stella glitter brush

After coloring, I added subtle sparkle using a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush and added dots to the wings using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. I paired the fairy with Tooth Fairy dies, adding fun sequins from Queen & Company into and falling out of the pocket. Cute paper is Happy Hearts, also from Queen & Company.

Thanks so much for visiting today, and good luck!

welcome baby (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! My card today features a baby theme without using baby themed dies.

I created a super quick and easy card using Paper SmoochesBows dies with a sentiment from Salutations. Salutations is a great sentiment set to have on hand as it covers all of the most popular card giving occasions.

When adhering the bows, I applied adhesive only to the center portion so the bow loops and ends are free to bend forward just a bit. As a finishing touch, I adhered three Gems from Queen & Company. They add just a teeny tiny bit of sparkle. 🙂

i love you so much (paper smooches)

Hello everyone. Today I’m sharing a quick and easy card using Lots of Love from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Lots of Love

I first stamped onto watercolor paper then used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a stained glass-ish look. I love how transparent the overlap appears. Note: It’s important to allow each color/area to dry completely before moving on to adjacent areas so that colors don’t blend where unwanted.

Once watercolored, I die-cut the sentiment into a tag shape, tied a bit of hemp, white embossed the sentiment and added a small strip of zig-zag stitching.   (The “so much” stamp is from Pineapple Crush.)

Thanks so much for visiting today.  🙂

hello honey (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I hope your week has been off to a good start! We’re halfway to the weekend, and we’re expecting snow. Normally I would be very excited about that, but we have to drive our son back to college so it’s not exactly the best timing.

Today I’m sharing a card using Bee Mine from Paper Smooches.  🙂

Paper Smooches Bee Mine and Layered Hello dies

After stamping the cute bees, I added a bit of color using Copic markers then die-cut each with coordinating Bee Mine Icons dies. I adhered the bees using clear foam squares and added little heart trails using a Copic multiliner.

Copic markers – BG10, R00, RV32, Y11, 100

I used Layered Hello dies (possibly out of stock?) for part of the sentiment, stamping “honey” (from Bee Mine stamp set) below.

Snow Way! (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I’m popping in today with a card using Swanky Snowdudes and pretty Snowflakes dies from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes and Snowflakes dies

I first die-cut a strip of Post It tape using a Snow Drifts die. Once that was adhered across the bottom of my card front, I sponged a quick sky with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink then adhered the die-cut snowflakes. In the center of each, I placed a Queen & Company Gem topping.

The snowman was stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers (listed above) then cut out and adhered with foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting!

i think you are so cool (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by!  Today I’m sharing a fun card using Chilly Chums and Lovely Snowflake die from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Chilly Chums and Lovely Snowflake die

I first created the background by sponging Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks. I think it’s a lovely combination.

Copic markers – BG10, BV02, BV11, R83, RV11, V25, Y21, YR23. Distress Oxide inks – Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry

The snowflake was adhered using small pieces of clear foam squares, then Queen & Company‘s Gems were added for a bit of sparkle.  Cute little penguin was colored with Copic markers and also adhered using clear foam squares.

I’ll be back soon! 🙂

baby, it’s cold outside (paper smooches)

Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by today. It’such a busy time of year. I so very much appreciate your time and interest. 

Today I’m switching gears from coloring to die-cutting.  🙂

Paper Smooches Mitten die and Winter Sampler

My card features Paper Smooches Mitten die with a sentiment from Winter Sampler.  The twine is held in place using Gloobers by Queen & Company with the gloobers in position beneath the top mitten. I used a tiny Gloober beneath the knot on the top mitten. It’s small enough not to show and strong enough to hold the twine.

The snowflakes were added once assembled, tucking a few beneath the mittens and string.

Thanks again for visiting today!

Cool Dudes (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re off to a great start this week. 🙂  Today I have a card to share using Cool Dudes by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Cool Dudes

The background was inspired by all of the Distress Oxide Blending I’ve seen on Instagram lately. I first die-cut a strip of Post It Tape using a Snow Drifts die, then applied that as a mask. I blended Salty Ocean and Broken China inks, sprinkled a bit of water, then added in snow dots in various sizes using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. (It’s one of my all-time favorite supplies!)

Copic markers – BG10, E35, R29, R39, R89, Y35, YR23; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

The cool dudes snowman was colored with Copic markers (listed above) then die-cut using the coordinating Cool Dudes Icons die (which is currently 50% off). Once die-cut the snowman was adhered using Kool Tak clear foam squares. (Another supply I like to always have on hand.)

Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂

Peace – Love – Joy (paper smooches)

Hello everyone. How is your holiday prep progressing? Mine is “eh.” But we’re getting there!  Today I have a card to share using A Holy Holiday by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches A Holy Holiday

I first created the background by stamping and white embossing snowflakes from Gently Seasoned Two.  I then sponged Wilted Violet and Broken China Distress Oxide inks, wiping away ink from the snowflakes.  I also sprinkled a bit of water over the ink to create a somewhat splotchy appearance.

Distress Oxide Inks – Wilted Violet, Broken China

The sentiment and reindeer were stamped, then I added Queen & Company‘s new Gems to the snowflake centers and randomly within the background. (Gems are not just for shaker cards! I often use them as super sparkly embellishments!)

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Joy to the World (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I hope you had nice weekend. We celebrated Thanksgiving early, having the big dinner on Saturday since many of us will be out of town. It was really nice.  🙂

My (very simple) card today features A Blessed Christmas with a corresponding Blessed Icons die by Paper Smooches.  (The dies are currently 50% off!)

Paper Smooches A Blessed Christmas

I could easily have stamped the bird onto the card but I chose to stamp and die-cut so I could slightly bend up the wings and branch.

Paper Smooches A Blessed Christmas (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, G21, G24

I added just a bit of color to the bird using a BG10 Copic marker.

To add a bit more definition, I die-cut a pale blue circle to frame the bird beneath the stitched circle.

Thanks for stopping by today!
