Paper Smooches Love

Man, do I have some projects to share with you today. In the midst of all the holiday craziness, I managed to get a little zen crafting time.:)

This project uses Lovely Thoughts. I opted to color my roses with markers instead of the two-step stamps included. Nice that you have both options. Quite a fan of these roses!

I masked off a Fancy Frames (you get this set free this month with a $60 purchase in the store) and stamped a floral cluster from Blossoming Buds all around it. Butterflies from Flap Happy add a little whimsy.

Lots of Love. The overlapping " I love you" begged to be colored. I have a little bee from the set carrying love between two flowers from Daisy and Paisleys.

Roses Dies were used to create this lovely focal point. I cut the die four times and glued the pieces together for a dimensional look. The banner is cut from the Streamers Dies and stamped with Blissful Banners.

Squared Frame die was cut down to create this smaller focal point and I used the new Love & Cherish Dies for both the "love" die cut and the hearts. Very easy card.

This is the Welcome Wagon stamp set for the "neighborhood" and "welcome" stamps. You can see, I took the name of the stamp set literally and put a little house (Bitty Bungalows)  in a wagon. (Knick Knacks).

I used the Pattern 1 embossing strips here in the openings created by the Stitched Frames Dies. A perfect fit.  Large Snowflakes Dies and the Christmas Words 2 Dies add some more die cutting fun to the front.

Whew! That's a lot! But this time of year, it is go big or go home right? Speaking of which, right back to the salt mines for me. Got to keep working away at that holiday to-do list:). Hang tight if you are in the same boat. It's only a week away, right?:)


  1. These cards are beautiful!! I love the dimensional rose and how you cut the background die on the black. Fabulous design!
