Paper Smooches’ New Cacti Dies

Hi everyone! Have you seen Paper Smooches‘ latest release? I’ve been chomping at the bit to share my samples using the new stamps and dies. Today I have two cards to share using new Cacti dies. Those who know me, know that I love Arizona. I couldn’t wait to create with this set!

Paper Smooches Cacti dies

The set includes dies to create a few different types of cacti including pots, needles, blossoms and more. I opted for a Prickly Pear and Barrell here.

Copic markers – RV17, V05, Y17, YG03

I sponged a bit of green ink around the edges of the cacti to add definition. The buds and blossoms were colored with Copic markers then adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and a Quick Stik tool. (I highly recommend the Quick Stik tool for picking up and placing those tiny pieces.) The sentiment was stamped from Eco Friendly. I thought it coordinated perfectly.  I adhered the bases of the cacti to the paper and used foam squares beneath the upper edges to add a bit of dimension. I finished off the flower by adhering an orange Jelly Gem from Queen & Company.

Next I created a card that is a bit more masculine. Do the flowers make it less masculine? Hmmm… I think it’s ok.

I blended a bit darker green around the edges here and used a Mermaid Lagoon blended background.

At the time of typing this post, I do not have specific links to Paper Smooches’ latest release products but you can find everything HERE. I will update the links below soon.

hello (paper smooches)

Hello crafty friends!  Thanks so much for stopping by today. I appreciate each and every peek.  🙂

Today I’m sharing a card using product from Paper Smooches‘ July release. You can see all of the latest stamps and dies here. I’ve used Pattern Builder dies, Inverted Greetings and Patternology stamp sets.

I simply taped the various dies in place, one at a time, and die-cut with my Big Shot. Once all the rows were cut, I used various strips of scrap card stock behind the openings.  The pink dots were stamped from Patternology, using my MISTI to ensure even coverage. I don’t know how I ever stamped without my MISTI. It is by far my most beloved tool. The Hello block was stamped in green ink then trimmed and popped up on foam squares.  Pretty quick and easy.  🙂

Thanks again for visiting! Enjoy your day!

broken crayons still color (paper smooches)

Hello everyone!  I hope your weekend was pleasant. It has been some kind of hot here (as in over 100). And humid. Yuck. So terribly nasty. I can’t wait for our typical three days of fall. Haha. Virginia weather is crazy.

My card today features some fun new stamps and dies now available from Paper Smooches.  New Health Dies includes two ribbons, a bandaid, a rectangle to place atop the bandaid for added dimension, and a small heart.

The sentiment, stamped in black onto white card stock, is from new Inverted Greetings, a set of 14 sentiments and two accents, covering many different occasions.  To pop the sentiment, I used foam squares beneath.

You can find everything from Paper Smooches‘ latest release HERE.

You Rock (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using two new stencils and a new die now available from Paper Smooches. (This is my favorite of the samples I created.)

I first die-cut the You Rock die from black cardstock.  I then used the Patterns stencil to blend in the rainbow lines. I created the top line first then used the sentiment to determine placement of the bottom line. Once the blending was complete, I adhered the sentiment in place.

I added a small star using Starry stencil and added a sprinkling of Jelly Gems (links below). I really like how this one turned out.  And it was quick and easy so that’s a bonus.  🙂

Thank so much for visiting today.

choose to shine (paper smooches)

Hello friends! Today I have a fun card to share using several dies from Paper Smooches‘ latest release with a bit from a perfectly coordinating older stamp set.

Paper Smooches Vespa and Sunnyville

I’ve used new Vespa die with the flower and flag from older stamp set, Spiffy Scooter. There are lots of coordinating stamps in the set for creating patterns, large and small “exhaust” clouds, sentiments, etc. It’s really cute.  🙂

Copic markers – RV66, V01, V12, Y18, Y19

I also included the adorable sun with smiley face from new Sunnyville stamp set. Once stamped and colored, I die-cut the sun with the coordinating Sunnyville Icons die and popped it up on a foam square.

You can find Paper Smooches‘ latest release HERE. Also, every order over $60 qualifies for a free stamp set! Simply state the stamp set you’d like (for FREE) in the comments section when placing your order.  🙂

Today is a New Day (paper smooches)

Hello everyone. Today I’m sharing another card using some of the latest products available from Paper Smooches. (You can find my preview posts using new Paper Smooches HERE and HERE.)

I combined Cuppa Sunshine dies with Mini Clouds dies and a sentiment from Sunnyville stamp set.  The little eyelashes and smile are also from Sunnyville. Aren’t they cute?  🙂

I cut a thin frame by die-cutting a large square then centering and taping a slightly smaller square die over the larger square and die-cutting again. To add a bit of texture, I zigzag stitched a bit on three sides.

You can find all of the latest products now available from Paper Smooches HERE. It’s a super cute release!

Make Today Great (paper smooches)

Paper Smoocheslatest release is so adorable. Seriously, SO cute! I shared my first card using the new Sunnyville stamp set HERE. Today I’ve turned to the new dies.  🙂

I used Sunny dies and Mini Clouds dies. They work perfectly together! The sentiment is from Sunnyville stamp set.

Before adhering the sun and clouds, I masked off a section of X-Press It Blending Card using Post It Tape then blended in blue to green using Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed.  (While I mostly use Blending Card for Copic coloring, I also like the bright white and the smoothness for easy blending.) At the base of the sponged area, I adhered several Mini Flowers, popping up every other flower on a foam square for added dimension.

You can find Paper Smooches‘ latest release HERE. And don’t forget that every order over $60 qualifies for a free stamp set! Simply state the stamp set you’d like (for FREE) in the comments section when placing your order.  🙂
