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.

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.

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.)

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.

happy spring (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  Happy spring (assuming it is spring where you are). As I type this (which is a bit earlier than it will actually post), we are getting 6-10 inches of snow.  Yuck.

Hello everyone.  I have a card to share today using a super-sweet stamp set from Paper SmoochesEco Friendly. (We’re still waiting for spring here. Winter simply does not want to let go.)

Paper Smooches Eco Friendly

I adore this image. It’s just so cute.  :)  To the left and right, I added a few die-cut flowers with circles from Polka Dot Borders in the centers. They’re the perfect size!

Compost Happens (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. Today I have a fun card to shared using Green Thumb by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Green Thumb

The boots are one of ten images in the set. I first stamped the bottom of each boot onto X-Press It Blending Card. I didn’t worry about masking since the bottoms are so dark (brown). I then stamped the boots onto dotted paper, cut out and adhered over the stamped bottoms.

Copic markers – BG11, E23, E47, E57, E79, W00, W1, W2, W3

Using Copic markers (noted above), I added mud (or “compost”) and a few little brown pearls.  Once complete, I stamped my favorite of the three sentiments in the set.  :)

In the upper right corner, I added a few Stitches and a Heart.

Wishing you a compost-free day.  :)  Thanks for visiting.

a little spring and super sized hugs (paper smooches)

Hello, friends! I know many of you have been blasted with unrelenting winter storms so I thought I’d bring a bit of spring your way.

Paper Smooches Natural Beauties

I used the tiny and oh-so-cute wreath from Paper SmoochesNatural Beauties stamp set. I stamped in dark brown ink, colored the leaves and bird with Copic markers then added a few die-cut flowers and stamped hearts.  (The coordinating Natural Beauties Icons dies are currently 50% off!)

Along the stamped panel edges, I adhered Deco Edges, using Queen & Company‘s Simple Stripes patterned paper beneath each side.

Irish You a Magical Day (paper smooches)

Hi everyone.  Today I have a card to share using Paper SmoochesMagical Spring stamp set. While I am not a fan of beer, I’ve always been fascinated by GREEN beer.  Haha. It just seems fun (although I’ve never had it).

Paper Smooches Magical Spring stamp set

I randomly stamped the glass then colored with Copic markers. I used the clover from Spring dies, cutting from X-Press It Blending Card and also coloring with markers.
