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!

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.

Ta-da!

This was a fun one. Used the new Feathered Friends stamp set to the do the whole dang time. The birds, the hearts, the words… all from the set. 🙂 And I whipped out my old friends, my trusty markers.

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

I grounded the chicks by slapping down a piece of paper and then sponging some blue ink at their feet. Could have went with a gray or a brown (or maybe even a green), but blue ink was within reach. Yes, I’m a “keep it real” kind of crafter. Expect the truth in my write-ups… wink.

The sequins and tape were all from my stash-a-roo of crafty goods. Funny how little touches of stuff like that can just complete a card seamlessly.

Alright. Tis’ all for the day. Thanks for stopping by. And thanks for leaving your kind words too. It’s always a treat. See you again soon, friends.

Meet card #1.

I just plain had fun with this one, pulling out images from the Stay Salty stamp set and coordinating dies. I had big dreams of doing just one little scene, but then was like, “I’m going for more, baby!” so I did just that with the 4 little scenes.

I add some little touches, like inking the life preserver and the mermaid’s tail and adding some vellum to the boat. Oh, and I went a little old school too by adding lots of inking to the edges. Maybe not old school, but timeless. That’s probably a better way of saying it.
And meet card #2.
So I went kinda wild with this one! My need to go freestyle was high!
The sunshine panels from the new Silver Linings die set are pretty cool! They have a cool pattern of sun rays. I was messing around and found them to be kinda foldable so I cut a whole bunch and folded them to make that funky pattern.

It was fun to do!
The words are from the new Warm Fuzzies stamp set. It’s a great set with lots of words.
The sun is from the previously released All Inside stamp set, while the little hat? It’s from the new Bear Ware stamp set and coordinating dies. I’m a huge fan of mixing and matching so it’s fun to be able to do that with so many of the Essentials by Ellen stamps and dies! (THANK YOU, Ellen!)
Eh_WarmFuzziesClose_teri
Alright! That’s what I have for you!
Thanks for stopping by today!
And don’t forget to visit Laurel, who is the next stop on the hop-a-roo! Take it away Laurel!
