Happy Friday with new Paper Smooches

The new release at Paper Smooches just went live this week on the website, so I thought I'd share some cards I made with the new goodies to kick off the weekend!  My first card uses the new dies for the My Guy stamp set!  I paired up the My Guy stamps and dies with a little Zoo Crew to make this fun card...


For this next card, I went girly and blingy with the new Deco Bag die.  This card is the perfect size for a gift card or small favors.  It's also perfect for making a quickie shaker card.


I die cut the deco bag in vellum and used scor-tape to put it together.  I filled my shaker with lots of sequins and lots of glitter.  I found this oversized hexagon shaped glitter at Michael's and it's perfect for shakers!  To seal the top of the bag, I sewed on the die cut sentiment cut in metallic gold card stock.  Love all the sparkle!


My last card uses the new Quotables dies.  I love the scale of these dies!  They fit across an A2 card and I love that they have left-facing and right-facing dies:)  I die cut each speech bubble so that they all hook together like puzzle pieces. 


I pretty much used every die in the set and paired them up with sentiments from a variety of sets (Hooties, Slang Gang, and ).  Kim has designed such fun sentiments and I love mixing and matching them to make a totally custom sentiment:)


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! 

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

    1. Chrissy, I got it from Michael's of all places:) I usually don't buy much there but I found this in the front where they keep single 12X12 sheets. With the glitter sheets:) I love it and haven't been able to find gold card stock that I like as much as this one.

    1. I found the glitter in the general craft supply aisle (not in the paper crafts area). They are in these bottles that have a pop open top kind of like spices. One side is regular glitter and the other is this hexagon glitter. I just got some more yesterday, lol! Love it!

  20. Nice job on all the cards. Love all of them. I will keep an eye on that hexagon glitter at Michael's. The sentiment you used in the giraffe card, is that part of a stamp set? I think it will be fun to add it to my collection. Thanks.
