I mean, hello, dogs! You can’t go wrong with dogs!

I masked the two dog images together by stamping one dog and then stamping him a second time on a sticky note. I cut him out, placed him on the first image and then stamped the little dog on top. The result? Something that looks like the two dogs are next to each other. Easy peasy!

The second card uses the Tall Wildflowers stamp from Crafty Individuals.

I  was feeling kinda of artsy when I made this one. I sponged dye inks onto cardstock and then flicked water droplets on top. I let the ink dry and then stamps the flowers with black ink right on top.

An easy technique, but it is such a fun technique to do! You get a different look every single time. I love that!

Alright! That’s what I have. Now, be sure to check out all these blogs and comment for your chance to win the grand prize!!

A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri // Terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! Had some fun with this little croacker. (Hee hee, I couldn’t resist.)

I used a couple new Paper Smooches products – the Critter Card Puns stamp set and the Bear Frog Card Dies. Made the little froggy with the dies. To make those little cheeks (because you know, I am all about cute), I applied some chalk to the card and then little dabs of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The sentiment was stamped entirely with the stamp set. I used a little red pen to draw the editing mark. Trying to be funny there.  Wink

FEBRUARY is Paper Smooches’ Anniversary month, They are celebrating 6 years of good stuff!  Be prepared for a TON of fun all through the month of February!

OK. Enough hop-talk-a-roo… and all that jazz.

Here’s the project I cooked up to share with you.

A card created with clear stamps and steel dies from Paper Smooches // terisplace.wordpress.com

I made this bad boy with the new Let’s Celebrate stamp set and coordinating steel dies. Balloons are pretty much “the thing” when it comes to celebrations and this stamp set is packed with them. You agree?

To make a couple of the balloons stand out, I stamped a heart and then plopped in the middle of them. It’s just… kinda… fun. I think.

ps_letspartystampset_close_teri

I love that stamped word especially. Looks so cool when cut out with the coordinating die. To cut it out, I stamped the word and then placed the die on top. To keep the die from moving when I ran it through my Big Shot, I plopped on a little sticky note tape. It’s strong enough to hold the die in place and yet removable so no ink gets removed.

Alright, friends. That’s it for now. I’ll be again soon!

A handmade card created for Paper Smooches by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

So I actually used a few new Paper Smooches products on this bad boy.

Cut those white words with the new Happy Birthday 2 dies. Stamped the “ewe” word with  the new Courteous Cuties 2 stamp. And those cute little sheep? Yep. Stamped those with the new Courteous Cuties stamp set (and coordinating dies). Fun stuff!

I went a bit hog wild, creating the little scene with hills cut with the Borders 1 dies and hearts with the Hearts dies. I also added some white dots with Nuvo’s Gloss White Crystal Drops. Turned out pretty fun.

Made this card with the new Snowdrifts dies. I cut the drifts out of a big panel of white cardstock and then added the drift lines back to it to the give it a little extra dimension. And then I whacked the panel down with my paper trimmer (…. because I wanted a smaller card than usual) and added some glitter glue to give the card a little sparkly glitz. The trees? Cut those with the Snowdrifts dies too.

The sentiment is from another new Paper Smooches product, the Winter Sampler.

Ta-da!

Used a couple new products on this guy. The words, dots and hearts are all stamps from the new Be Merry stamp set. It’s a good all around holiday stamp set. I don’t know about you but any set that features lots of words is always welcome at my craft table! And this stamp set? It’s got LOTS of great words.

A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I used a few new Paper Smooches products on this one: The Grateful die, the Fall Sampler stamp set and the Leaf Frame die.

The cool thing about the stamp set is the phrases in it work really swell with the Grateful die, as well as the Leaf Frame die.

By the way, to create layers with this card, which is actually super flat, I cut the frame out a few times from different colors of cardstock and then pieced the parts together.
