Paper Smooches February Projects

How about some Paper Smooches goodies to start off the weekend (yes, I'm starting it now;)  This first card is made with the new Party Posse dies.  I just love the little hamster from the Party Posse set, so I made them a Habitrail card, heehee!  You *know* you remember those colorful tube hamster cages;)  I used colored vellum to create my tubes and covered each hammy with an acetate circle.  So much fun to make!

Now for something completely different;)   Much to my surprise, this card has no stamping!  It's all about the dies.  I used the Tag Stitch die on vellum for the sentiment tag.  I still love pink and gold:)  

Did you see these cards from last month's release?  They were on the PS blog but I wanted to share them here too:)

For this card, I used some dies from the Cardbooking set (hashtag and the free form speech bubble dies).  The hashtag and word are inlaid, but I covered them with a bit of glossy accents to make them stand out.  Almost looks enameled in person.  

Here's another card from last month, this time with the Frame 1 die.  I love the look of the small delicate sentiment on the large label die.  To ground the sentiment, I cut another label die, cut it in half, and stamped it with flowers from the Reflections set.  The little details like the stitching on the label die really make this simple design more complete.  

That's it for me today!  I hope you go check out all the new Paper Smooches goodies this month!   Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
