Now let's take a looksie at some new Paper Smooches!  One of the things I love so much about Paper Smooches stamps and dies is mixing and matching pieces to create little scenes.  I'm using one of the new Trees 2 dies for this little summer time scene.  I die cut the tree trunk from woodgrain embossed paper.  Then I created the "leaves" of the tree by die cutting a mix of cloud dies until I got the custom shape that I wanted.  



Here's a little close up of the woodgrain tree and the little birdie (from the My Peeps set):)  



Thanks for stopping in!  The next stop on the hop is the amazing Julia Stainton.  I'm sure she's got something wonderful to share!
