thanks so much (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping in! My card today uses one of my favorite word dies and pretty Best Buds flowers by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Best Buds

My color choices were based on those thin slivers of patterned paper you see peeking out from the left and right sides. I truly love Echo Park’s Have Faith patterned paper. The thin strips were scraps I just couldn’t throw away.

Copic markers – BG10, E33, E35, G94, G99, R39, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, YG63

I colored with markers, die-cut the image with it’s coordinating die then adhered over a sponged background. “Thanks” and the heart from Thanks so Much were die-cut from dark gray card stock, adhered and traced over with Glossy Accents. “So much” was stamped from All Year Cheer.

I’ll be back soon!  Have a great day!

You’re Fintastic (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. Today I’m off to the ocean!  Not really. That would be nice though. Haha.  On my card today I’ve used Briny Blue along with Ocean Scene dies by Paper Smooches.

After stamping the images, I colored with markers and added a sprinkling of Kirarina Wink White dots. There is a Briny Blue coordinating four-die set but I don’t happen to have that one so I fussy-cut each image.

Before creating/adhering my scene, I sponged a wavy background using Taylored Expressions’ Go with the Flow stencil. In addition to the fish, I added a few Ocean Scene plants, coloring each with markers then a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. (“You’re” was stamped from Surf & Turf set.)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love You Moo & Moo (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! I have a little bit of farm love/humor today.  :)  I’ve used Paper Smooches‘ cute Green Acres stamp set with coordinating dies.

Paper Smooches Green Acres

The images were stamped then colored with Copic markers. I stamped the wheat, colored and cut out with scissors (as there is no die for that).  The hills (or Snow Drifts) were die-cut from Doodlebug Design’s Down of the Farm, *really* cute patterned paper, and the sentiment was white embossed.

Copic markers – B23, B93, B95, BG11, E01, E11, E18, E35, R01, R02, R29, R89, Y21, YR23, 110

Once the scene was assembled, I die-cut a few Tiny Hearts and adhered as musical notes coming from the little bird.  :)

Reel Great Dad and an Open Door (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  I’m popping in today to share two cards I created using stamps from Paper Smooches:)

Paper Smooches My Guy

First I created a quick and easy card for dad using My Guy stamp set. I simply stamped the reel then stamped the fish onto another scrap piece of white card stock. After coloring with markers, I cut him out and adhered to the end of the reel, using liquid glue under his mouth and a clear foam square beneath his tail for a bit of added dimension.

Copic markers – BG13, YG03, YG06, YR12

I added a scrap piece of Picture Perfect striped paper from Queen & Company, a few enamel shapes, then rounded the corners and adhered to a patterned block.

Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalows

My next card features Bitty Bungalows.  The bitty bungalow sits atop a Stitched hill with Flowers 2 sprinkled around.

Copic markers – B0000, BG11, X2, C3, E31, E33, R000, R21, R22, R81, Y21, YG03; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I colored with Copic markers then used a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen to add the centers of the flowers. Once the stamped panel was assembled, I adhered it over more Picture Perfect paper using foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  :)

just saying hello (paper smooches)

hello  :)


Today I created a quick and easy card using Paper SmoochesHello Sampler.  (Super duper quick and easy.)


I added the second speech bubble as an afterthought, but I actually like how that allowed the one edge to fall across the striped paper (from Queen & Company). Enamel shapes are from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  :)

I’m So Excited (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. I finally was able to plant some flowers and herbs. The deck looks so much happier now (although I’m not finished).  :)  In honor of my freshly planted garden and deck, I created this fun card using Twiggy Florets and Comforting Hugs from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Twiggy Florets and Comforting Hugs

After stamping the flowers, I colored with markers, then stamped, colored and die-cut the little dog using the coordinating Comforting Hugs Icons die (which is currently on sale).

cutest “bug” (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. While bugs and viruses can be no joke, this little germ from Paper Smooches, I’m sure, is among the cutest.

Paper Smooches Healthy Vibes

He’s from Healthy Vibes stamp set which includes six main images, three sentiments and seven accent images. It’s a really cute set for quick and easy get well cards.

Paper Smooches Healthy Vibes (close-up)

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, C1, RV11, RV32, Y17, Y18, YG03, YG06, YR16, YR18; Kirarina Wink Dandeliion, Spearmint, Lime, Pink, Orange

I stamped all of the germs onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with markers. I stamped an extra which I die-cut, popped up on foam tape and “caught” in a bit of white string. Once all germs were colored, I added Glossy Accents to all of the eyes and in the background added dots using various Kirarina Wink glitter pens.

I hope you remain germ/bug-free!  With this strange “spring” we’re having, I hear there has been a resurgence of the flu. Yuck!

Thanks so much for visiting!

i ♥ you sew much (paper smooches)

Hello everyone.  I hope you had a nice weekend. We’re back to cold, wet weather here. Seriously…enough is enough. Ugh.

Today I’ve used Paper Smooches‘ super cute Needle Little Love stamp set with coordinating dies. There are so many cute images in this set.  I chose a few to create a little sewing station.

Paper Smooches Needle Little Love

I stamped all pieces onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, C1,C2, C3, E51, G03, G05, G07, R17, R27, R35, R39

Beneath the pieces, I used two patterned scraps. The cherry print was a strip across the top of another pattern.  There was a hole in the middle (where the paper pad would hang) which I strategically covered with the pin cushion.

Thanks so  much for stopping by today.  :)

Garden Greetings (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I hope your Monday is off to a great start. Today I have a card to share using Garden Greetings from Paper Smooches.  (There is a coordinating die set as well although I didn’t use it on my card today.)

Paper Smooches Garden Greetings

Since I’m still missing the southwest (and freezing), I’m totally gravitating toward that little barrel cactus on the right.

Each image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.  The word “you” was stamped using Scripty Sayings.  It’s actually part of the “miss you” sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

This Calls for a Toast (Paper Smooches)

Hello, everyone! I’m just back from a wonderful (but way too short) vacation in Tucson. I just love the desert. So very much. Here are a few pics I took along the way. (Click to enlargen.) It’s so pretty. ♥  I miss it, and family, already.

So for now, back to reality. *sigh*  :)

Today I’m sharing a card using Wake Up by Paper Smooches.
