Paper Smooches Goodies!

 

Hello Sweet Friends!

 

I’m popping in quickly today to share some projects that I created for the Paper Smooches June release.  Today’s projects feature the new set called Green Thumb.  The set is chock-a-block full of adorable images and sentiments that are perfect for any garden lovin’ fool.

 

 

My first sample features the wellies.  I actually fell in love with that little boot image and knew that I had to figure out a way to make it look like someone was jumping in a puddle.  I paper pieced the wellies (I also masked one boot and stamped to make a second boot).  I then masked the pair of boots and stamped the puddle using one of the ovals from Shadows.  The splashes are from Briny Blue.  I don’t know if you can tell from the photo, but I added some Glossy Accents to the puddle and splashes for a little touch of “reality.”  Actually I used so many Paper Smooches products on this project that I listed them below.

 

Karolyn - Green Thumb 1 Dies 1

 

This project features the watering can from Green Thumb (as well as the coordinating die), Flag Tag Dies for the sentiment banner, the bee from Spring Groves and the sentiment is from Perky Plants.  The rest of the products used are listed below.

 

I have one other project that I created for Green Thumb, but I’ll save that for another day next week.  The truth is, I had an absolute blast creating with this stamp set and can honestly say that it’s now one of my most faves!

 

That’s it for me today.  I’m pretty sure that Kim is sharing some fun projects on the Paper Smooches blog today – you should totally stop by and say hello.  We’re babysitting our youngest grandson this weekend, so I get to stock up on some Gramma snuggles.  Can’t wait to get my mitts on my little love bug.  Hope you have some amazing plans for your weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
