Hello crafty friends! I am so excited, and a whole lot giddy to be here today sharing my exciting news. I have been a long-time admirer of  Paper Smooches. The style is so fun and unique and Kim creates amazing products. When she asked me to be a Guest Designer in October I wouldn't be surprised if she heard me scream, it was more like a squeal of excitement. I am joining the team for today's Blog Hop and the rest of the month sharing my Paper Smooches creations.

You are going to love the products releasing today. I had so much fun creating with the goodies Kim sent me and I will be sharing more throughout the month. Today I have two cards to share. I had a hard time deciding which ones to start with. 




Yep. this was pretty much me working with these stamps, dies, and stencils. I was bursting with smiles! I used the cool new stencil called Stackers Stencil to create the bold rainbow. I then stamped a trio of the cute chubby critters from the Caffeinated stamp set and colored them up with copic markers and cut them out with the matching Caffeinated Icons Dies. I added the sentiment from Caffeinated Two along the bottom in black ink. Oh, how I love this font! I attached the critters with some foam dots and added in a trio of Stackers Stencil hearts to finish off the card. 


You know I love a good word die. Well, Kim takes word dies to a whole other level. You sure get your bang for your buck with this Joy die. You get a solid word, the outline, AND individual letters. The combos and uses are pretty much endless. I customized my word with three colors of card stock and then added some sparkle with silver glitter paper for the outline. I completed the greeting with a sentiment from Spreading Joy stamp set. 



I decided it needed a little something extra, so I tucked in some of the pretty leaves from the Laurels Die. I love white on white, and a scattering of sequins were the finishing touches.
