Paper Smooches February Release Blog Hop!


Hello!  I am SO SUPER EXCITED to be joining the Paper Smooches gang this month to show off their brand new FEBRUARY 2019 release!  It is adorable and you are going to LOVE it!  ONE new stamp sets and FOUR new dies will be available to purchase at 10:00 AM Central time zone on February 14th.  You will find the new products at their online store once they go live.  www.papersmoochesstamps.com

To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper with Shaded Lilac Distress ink.  I splattered on some clean clear water to bleach out some areas, then splattered on some white pearl and gold watercolor using the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.  I added a scalloped circle from a new die set, Flaunters.  The circle diecut is a great way to frame out the focal point.  The star of the show is an adorable fairy from the new So Fairy Cute stamp set.  I LOVE HER!  I stamped and colored her with Copic Markers and diecut her with the coordinating Fairy Cute Icons dies.


Sending Sparkly Wishes

I stamped a sentiment from the So Fairy Cute stamp set onto a banner from the new Bannerific dies set, then popped everything up with foam tape.  I added some Stickles to the fairy's wings, crown and wand, and added some white gel pen accents.  Then, I stamped a tiny cluster of stars from the set in Shaded Lilac ink, and added some glittery stars cut using the previously released Space dies.

Sending Sparkly Wishes
