Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January. 37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton of projects to inspire you this month. Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps. They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps!
I have a project to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe. You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS Blog.
I was lucky enough to get to play with some of the fabulous new DIES!!!! Technically, these dies are Bold Bloom Dies and match the stamp set, but they are SO versatile. You get a set of 3 dies and they could be used in so many ways. Clouds, flowers, puffs of smoke, bushes...and I guess for me, a tree:) This tree was inspired by all of those waiting for a loved one. I live in a military area (not far from a marine base) and we personally know so many families with loved ones still serving or just returning from overseas. I thought this would be a sweet way to say "we remember". I used the die to reverse cut a tree top and I lined it with vellum (blended with green ink). So easy and the die works perfectly with the tree trunk from Autumn Groves!

Paper Smooches Simply Said
My second card is just a sweet flower card:) Who doesn't love the simple blooms from Paper Smooches? Well now, you got 'em in die form:) I used all 3 dies to create a stepped flower. Just a little stamping and it was done! I just adore those leaf stamps:)
