{Paper Smooches Video} We Wish You a Merry Christmas

This card features the new Coffee & Tea dies. I thought they'd be perfect in the hands of the Snowman dies! Aren't those mugs the cutest?

I die cut the hill into the card base using the Stitched dies. Then I created a mask with the Quotables dies and sponged the light of dawn at the horizon, just like in the Universal Studios logo. It provides a nice contrast for all the white and highlights the mugs.

After assembling the snowmen, I stamped the sentiment from A Holy Holiday and heat embossed steam from Fresh Snow behind the mugs. The snowmen were then adhered to the card base with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Paper Smooches Video} Birthday Shaker with Simon Says Stamp Exclusive

My neighbour's youngest turned one this weekend so I decided to ink up the Paper Smooches Stamptember Exclusive, only available at Simon Says Stamp. This set has the most adorable dog and turtle! I'm sure you've seen the turtle used a few times so I decided to feature the cute little dog on rubble, created with the festive dots.

All of the patterned paper is from Crate Paper's Notes & Things 6x6 paper pad. I stamped the dog four times on two different sheets and pieced him together.

The shaker balloon is from the Big Balloons dies and the small, striped one is from the original Balloons dies. The two sentiments featured in the Stamptember Exclusive were too big for my design so I used the 'celebrate' word from Hullabaloo.

I love that this stamp set could be used for so many celebratory occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, New Year's and even a new pet.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
