Paper Smooches May Blog Hop

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches May/June release with you!  FOUR new stamps and EIGHT new dies will be available to purchase at midnight on April 30th (eastern time) (12:01 am on May 1) You will find our new releases HERE!

For my card today, I used the new Congratulations word die:)  This die is just the thing I needed to make a card for a friend of mine that is expecting.  I'm sending off a gift and this card will go with it...


My friend is a prolific instagrammer, so I thought I'd use my Polaroid dies and Pip Squeak stamps.  In my camera and word die cuts, I used some metallic silver paper.  They totally look like they are made of brushed stainless steel (which I kinda love:).  The Congratulations word die creates a really intricate die cut.  For detailed cuts like this, I highly recommend the Xyron sticker maker.  So much easier and cleaner than using a glue pen (which was the way I used to do it). Here's a closer look at those awesome die cuts!


Since Paper Smooches is working along side of Xyron adhesives this week, they have a special prize to offer one random winner as well.  The prize is worth $100. To see a photo of the prize, please visit the PS blog.  You can visit the Xyron blog  to see what their fabulous team has created with our PS products.  While you are there, you will have a chance to win a $20 gift code to win some PS products!  
  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog
  • The prize - a $25. gift code to choose what you like at the PS online store.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed below or the PS blog for your chance to win!  (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your changes) 
  • You have until midnight MT on Sunday, May 4th to leave a comment. 
  • Please check the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, May 5th to see if you are one of the FIVE lucky winners.  (four PS winners and one Xyron winner)

jj

    1. You guys crack me up! This time I actually used silver paper (I know I even shocked myself):) I haven't given up the gold yet, but I thought silver may be better for cameras. Come to think of it though, a GOLD camera would be awesome!!!
