Paper Smooches - August Blog Hop


Hello!  I am SO excited to be hopping along with the girls over at Paper Smooches today.  The new August release is so cute!  



This month Paper Smooches has 2 new stamps sets, 4 new dies and 2 new stencils.  



  • All eight new products will be available to purchase at 10:00 AM Central time zone on August 7th.  
  • You can click HERE to shop all the new products.

    I have 2 clean and simple projects to share so lets get started!



  • Paper Smooches

    To creare this first card, I did a little ink blending with the new stencil called Hot Dot Stencils.  I die cut the cactus and their planters, from the set Cacti Dies, and did some more ink blending on each piece.

    I put them together with liquid glue and then added in the detail cuts on the cactus.  Last, I stamped the sentiment from Word Salad on the pot and popped them up on foam tape.

    This next card was super simple....

    First, I added ink to the new Succulent Stencil by blending in a couple shades of green on the white cardstock.  Next, I used some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste to fill in the stencil over the ink.  I love the bright green that shows through.

    I had a hard time adding anything on top of that big bloom, so I added in a tiny hello, from Word Salad, to finish it off.
