Friday with Paper Smooches

How about some Paper Smooches goodies to start off the weekend?  Summer is in full swing here in the US, but I've got my eye on my favorite season with this first card.  I love everything about fall and the new Paper Smooches Seasonal Trees dies works perfectly for a fall card!  I die cut the tree from woodgrain paper and inlaid it into the sky panel.  For a little subtle texture, I reverse die cut the hill (Borders 1 die) at the bottom of the panel.  The green of the hill is blended ink on the card base.  It's a fun change to recess the hill instead of pop it up:)  The last step was to add a bunch of ink-blended leaves and a sentiment (from Hang Ups).


My second card uses the School Icons dies to create an easy anytime card that good for a girl or a guy:)  The "written" sentiment is one of the Hello dies which works perfectly with the pencil!  


That's it for me for now!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks so much for visiting:)

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  8. The 1st card shows why you're on a design team & I'm not - I would never have thought to recess the hill . It's so simple & so eye-catching.
