{Paper Smooches} The Welcome Wagon + Giveaway Reminder


The first thing I do when I see a sentiment set, like Paper Smooches' The Welcome Wagon, is to see how many different phrases I can create with it. Sometimes that means altering the existing ones to form new ones or using them in an unusual way. Instead of using this stamp set in the traditional "Welcome to..." way, I used it to create a snarky thank you card.


I did that by stacking "you're" and "most" with the Welcome Word Die and "hope you like it here" without the "here". I have several friends who would appreciate the rhetorical humour in this card and it would be especially perfect if accompanied by a bottle of the recipient's favourite wine, spirits, etc. The shaker part of the card was created using the Drink Glasses Dies.


Yesterday, our fall suddenly turned to winter with temps of -18C/-0.4F. Brrr!!! I'm not happy about it since fall is - or rather used to be - my favourite season. I guess I'll just have some wine and try to ignore it. ;)

{Paper Smooches} Cute Fruit + Challenge Reminder


Kim shared this card on the Paper Smooches Blog last week. It features the adorable and amazing Cute Fruit stamp set! It's not often that I use just one stamp set on a card but that's exactly what I did here and it was quick and easy to make. There are so many possibilities in this stamp set and I hope to make a video soon to show you a few of the things you can do to bring these characters to life!
