Paper Smooches Guest Designer

I am super SUPER excited to be the guest designer this month for Paper Smooches! I LOVE their stuff! 

Their new releases are adorable. Ok, all their stuff is ALWAYS adorable but did you see the fish in Courteous Cuties?! With a kid that grew up fishing, I'm all about the fish stamps! 

supplies used: Paper Smooches Courteous Cuties, Courteous Cuties 2,  Courteous Cuties Icon Dies, Copics, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker, Memento Ink

I stamped it all over the card and then stamped some extra, die cut him with the matching die set. I popped these up on foam tape to add some dimension to the card. To create the background I simply added dots of different sizes and colors with my copics. The sentiment is from Courteous Cuties 2 set. This set has so many cute sentiments that go with the animals in the Courteous Cuties stamp set. 

supplies used: Paper Smooches Courteous Cuties, Ocean Scene, Courteous Cuties Icon Dies, Doodlebug stickers, Copics, Memento ink
Next up is one of my favorite cards. Probably because its a bit out of the box, LOL! As I was die cutting lots of elements from the Ocean Scene die cut set, I couldn't help but picture the lamb from Courteous Cuties with a bunch of rocks. Ewe Rock! I crack myself up sometimes, LOL! 

If you haven't checked out this months Paper Smooches release...go check it out! Keep an eye on the Paper Smooches site tomorrow for a Flash Sale in honor of National Hobby Month!

Sending loads of Christmas Wishes...

I adore this truck from the new Stampendous Truck Tidings set. An old lime green truck...yes please, Santa! 


This set comes with both the cling stamps and matching dies. I used the tree die to cut a bunch of masks from post it notes. Easy peasy way to do the masking technique.

bah humbug....

I thought it would be cute stick this walrus from Paper Smooches Chilly Chums in the middle of a wreath. I had planned to have a holiday sentiment but his expression just says "bah humbug" to me, LOL! 


I started by cutting lots and lots of the holly die from Stampendous Build a Wreath die set. You'll see that I ended up ditching the die cut berries and just used the alphabet sticker centers because they were the perfect size and color. 

Die cut two blue circles to make a card front. Then using a smaller die trace a circle in the center of your card to use as a reference for building your wreath.


And here is a close up of that cutie colored up with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.
