xoxo Paper Smooches

Back with my Paper Smooches projects for the week.  I cannot believe these are my final ones--->this  month flew and I had an absolute blast working with Kim! Thanks so much, Kim!

The first card was created using Let's Celebrate stamp set.  I clear embossed the sentiment on white cardstock and then stamped the balloons over top.  I added the balloon strings from Party Balloons Dies and some confetti from Let's Celebrate stamp set:

Next, I used this precious cupcake from Sweet Dies for this card.  After piecing together the cupcake, I popped it up onto a panel covered in strips of washi tape. (This is a great way to use some of that huge stash!)
I die cut the sentiment Celebrate and added it to the bottom. Simple!

Hope you enjoyed my Paper Smooches projects this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

Just popping in to share a card I made with My Favorite Things set called Fancy Flowers.  For this card, I embossed the flowers in white onto black cardstock.  The main panel was created by stamping the flower and coloring it with Copic markers.   I stamped the flower again on white cardstock and colored it and cut out the center portion so I could pop it up over the first one:

I added a strip of blue paper over the bottom of this focal panel and then die cut the word HUGS (Words for Friends) from black cardstock and placed it on top.

I finished it off with a little sheer ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Splatter Balloons

Hello!  I have another fun birthday card to share today. For this card, I used Paper Smooches  Party Balloons Die  and Celebrate Word Die.

I die cut the balloons and word from puffy adhesive foam. Then, I sponged the foam word with some distress inks. I added some balloon die cuts (Party Balloons Die set) to the top of the balloon outlines.  I popped these over the splattered background:

I finished the card with a little puffy heart sticker!

I think I might make a set of these so I always have some birthday cards lying around.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey there, Cupcake!

Hello! I am back with my Paper Smooches projects for this week!

First up is a little generic greeting using:  Sweets Dies, Sentiment Sampler, Let's Celebrate Icon Dies, Metropolis.  The clouds were made using the top of the cupcake die and the hot air balloon was made using the balloon dies:

I am loving these sets! Hope your week is going well:)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Love Your Way

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day!  It's a great time of year to use this set called Heart Bouquet from My Favorite Things:

I stamped her in some light ink and colored her with Copic markers and Prismacolor Pencils.  Such a sweet stamp!

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!  😘

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by today!
