Paper Smooches May Release Blog Hop!



Hi Hi!  I am so excited to be joining the Paper Smooches design team for this month to show off the new release!  It's time to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches MAY 2019 release with you!  THREE new stamp sets and TWO new dies will be available to purchase at 10:00 AM Central time zone on May 7th.  Once they go live, you will find the new products here: www.papersmoochesstamps.com

My first card uses the new Sportsball stamp set and coordinating Sportsball Icons dies!  I used the previously released Positive Strokes Two stamp set to stamp and masculine rainbow backdrop for my card.  I used Distress Oxide inks in Chipped Sapphire, Pine Needles, Bundled Sage, Mustard Seed and Fired Brick, then I spattered on some black acrylic paint.  I stamped the basketball, baseball and football from the Sportsball stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.  I arranged them on the stamped background and adhered with a glue pen and foam tape.  For my sentiment, I diecut the word son using the new Dude Dies.  The shadow was cut from black cardstock, and the letters cut from white.  Then stamped Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new Dude Sampler stamp set.  To finish off my card, I added some white gel pen accents and a scattering of tiny wood stars from my stash.

Happy Birthday Son

My second card uses the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set and Daddy Yo Icons dies!  To create this card, I started off with a black card  base.  I used the previously released Geo-Graphic stamp set to stamp black polka dots on a kraft cardstock panel, which I then spattered with white acrylic paint.  I used the Flaunters dies to diecut a circle to ground my scene.  Then,  I stamped and colored a trio of beer bottles from Daddy Yo 2, which I diecut and popped up with foam tape.  I added some google eyes to the center bottle along with an adorable mustache included in the set, and white heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a black cardstock strip.  To finish things off, I added a trio of stamped yellow stars, and some white gel pen accents.
