On my card I used new Sweets Dies with a sentiment from Ghoulfriends stamp set. (Sentiments from Sugar Rush would have coordinated perfectly too!)

I die-cut all elements from cream card stock then colored with Copic markers. Once colored, I outlined each sweet treat with Glossy Accents.

for you…just beecause (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Today I’m popping in to share a very quick little tag I created using Paper Smooches‘ new For You tag dies (and a little Courteous Cutie).  :)

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

I die-cut the tag from patterned paper then adhered it to a second die-cut tag (white card stock) for added stability. I die-cut “for you” then adhered to the tag, linking the r and y.

The cute little bee is from new Courteous Cuties. The stamp set is FREE for the month of January with any $60 retail purchase! You can find the coordinating dies here.

Copic markers – R000, R01, Y17, Y18, YR24

I used Toffee ink to randomly stamp the bee and tiny heart over the kraft envelope, then used white ink (white embossed) to stamp “just beecause” which is from a coordinating sentiment set, Courteous Cuties 2. It perfectly compliments the stamps with lots of perfectly “punny” sentiments. :)

you are loved (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  Happy New Year!

Today I’m sharing a card using a few new stamp and die sets now available from Paper Smooches.  (You can see all of the latest release HERE.)

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

I used super adorable Courteous Cuties (free through 1/31/17 with any $60 retail order), Courteous Cuties Icons dies and You Are Loved die. The actual jellyfish image/stamp is holding onto a shell. I omitted the shell, stamped an extra arm and adhered it, wrapped around a die-cut Heart. I “fussy-cut” around the image then layered it atop an altered (white) jellyfish shape base with Kool Tak Clear Foam Squares between the layers for added dimension.

Copic markers – BG11, R01, RV63, V05, Y18, YG03, YG06, YG17

“You are loved” was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers to create an ombre affect.

Thanks so much for visiting today! :)

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

I first creatred a bit of a background with watercolor paper and a blue Zig Clean Color brush, then stamped and colored the turtle and seaweed with Copics, die-cut and assumed the pieces.  I colored over the turtle’s shell as well as the seaweed with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

I’m s(mitten) (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using two super cute new sets from Paper SmoochesMitten die and Winter Sampler.

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

The mitten die is simply adorable. I cut two then flipped one so the thumbs would go in the right directions. I braided three strands of white string, knotted and trimmed the ends. I added bits of glue beneath the ends and the loop to secure it in place.

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

The sentiment is one of many from Winter Sampler, soooo cute and FREE with any $60 retail order through December 31st.   :)

I’m off to tackle my enormous “to do” list. The more I accomplish today, the quicker I can relax and enjoy this week.  :) Thanks so much for stopping by! ♥

Grande Hugs (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using one of my favorite die sets from Paper Smooches‘ latest release Cozy Coffee.

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

I first added a bit of watercolor to a watercolor panel then die-cut the pieces. I colored over the cup and coffee beans with Copics then added a felt heart. The x’s on the cup were die-cut using new Mitten dies, and the sentiment was stamped from Winter Sampler.

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

Copic markers – E23, E25, E27, E40, E41

Winter Sampler is free through December 31st with any $60 retail order. (It contains a lot of really cute sentiments!)

Thanks so much for visiting today!  :)

be BRRRave (mo manning/paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Yesterday I picked up a few digital images from various online sales and actually had time to color one! Yay!  Haha. This is Snow Tot One from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

Michele Boyer - Mo Manning

She’s sooo cute, I think.  She was printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. The super cute sentiment is from Paper SmoochesWinter Sampler which you can get for free for just a few more days (through 11/30) with any $60 retail purchase, or it can be purchased on its own.

Copic markers - BG10, BG11, BG70, C00, C1, C2, E01, E11, E27, E35, G07, R02, R05, R14, R20, R37, Y21, Y32, YG17, YG23, YG25

It’s been a while since I’ve stitched on a card (or anything else for that matter). I blew the dust from my machine and crossed my fingers that it still worked. Luckily, it did.  :)

On my card I used new Snow Drifts dies and Winter Sampler stamp set. Winter Sampler is this month’s Thanks a Million (TAM) set, free to you with any $60 retail purchase through December 31st.

Michele Boyer - Paper Smooches

ETA: The Snow Drifts dies cut the thin raised outline. When the outline is cut, the matching curved edge of the card stock is also cut, so I adhered the thin outline just over that remaining cut edge. (Clear as mud?)

I used a blending tool to create the soft blue sky then white embossed the sentiment and add snowflakes with an opaque white pen. Super simple. :)
