{1.13.2012} Paper Smooches sneak peek — NEW cool stuff


There is only one thing I love more than Paper Smooches stamps…
NEW Paper Smooches stamps and NOW matching dies.  Eeek.

NEW-DEC-2012-PS-logo-small THIRD DRAFT

Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January.  37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton for projects to inspire you this month.  Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps.  They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps!

I have a project to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.
You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS Blog.

I was thinking about how AMAZING the new Paper Smooches dies are while creating this card.  I have a feeling that influenced my sentiment choice (a mix from the Word Salad set).  Ha.  Don’t you just LOVE how perfect those dies work with the Streamers stamps.

In this case, I used the die on the patterned paper and then trimmed out the stamp by hand.  It created a fabulous matted effect.  You could easily just use the die to cut out the stamp image though.  Either way is uber cool.  I paired the Streamers banner with the Reflections stamp kit.  I just love how the leaves and flowers look when layered.  So dreamy.  The texture on cardstock also added an unexpected look to the stamped images.  Love it.

I finished it all off with some white gel pen work and some glitter glue.


Paper Smooches is giving away $500. Worth of product!  Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100. each. The prize includes a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts and dies.  Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners.
Deadline is January 30th – winners will be announced on the PS Blog on January 31st.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.
And a great big THANK YOU to Paper Smooches for letting me share
the news about their NEW product lines.

I just LOVE this company… they are always full of fun surprises!!!
