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.

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  :)

hello-hello-500

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

hello-hello-CU

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.

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.)

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.

Copic markers – BG10, BG96, C00, C1, C2, E42, E43, E44, G21, G24, R20, R21, R30, R83, R85, RV32

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.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

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.

Today I’ve used cute Spring Fling and Spring Fling Icons dies by Paper Smooches.

Spring Blessings (paper smooches)

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.
