Paper Smooches Shaker Cards

Hi everyone,

I recently got my hands on some new Paper Smooches goodies and have been having a fun time playing with them. I made a few shaker cards the other day using the Bold Buzzwords Stamp Set and the Deco Bag Die along with a variety of sequins and Studio Calico Wood veneer pieces.

First an anniversary (or wedding) card that I'm entering in the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge:

Here's a girly birthday card...though now that I think of it this could be used as a baby card too!

Finally, another birthday card. For the background of this one I die cut the Hero Arts Triangle Background Die and used it as a stencil on my card base. I then used my Distress Markers and Distress Marker Spritzer to create a rainbow of triangles before removing the stencil and adding my little bag of goodies. :)


These were SO fun to make and I can't wait to make more. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Hostess Gift Card Sets

Hi everyone,

I'm stopping by today to share some card sets I've been working on the last little bit. I find card sets to be a great thing to make when the mojo just isn't there. The designs tend to be quite simple and since I'm mass producing there is little thinking to do once the design is settled on. Once finished they make great hostess gifts. :)

I used Jennifer McGuire's BRILLIANT tutorial for making the boxes. I also used this as an opportunity to use up some of the patterned paper I've hoarding from past Simon Says Stamp Card kits and my own stash.

Here are the 3 card sets I made (this is a picture heavy post). ;)

This first set uses the Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords Stamp Set and their Quotables Dies, along with some Basic Grey 6x6 Paper and lots of different enamel dots...

My second and third card sets use a number of Simon Says Stamp word dies, Hero Arts sequins, and patterned papers from various Simon Says Stamp Card Kits.

Set #3:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
