Paper Smooches Shares!

Hi Again!

I know . . . two days in a row!  I’m sure you’re shaking your head and wondering what in the heck has happened to me.  Right?!  LOL  I’m finally starting to see the light at the end of tunnel.  And in doing so, I realized that I haven’t shared any Paper Smooches goodies for many days now.  So, I’ll show you a sample from May’s new release, as well as my remaining samples from April’s release!  Here we go!

Karolyn - Retail Therapy

First, we’ll start with Retail Therapy – a brand spankin’ new set released on May 1st.  This set has every single thing that any girlie girl needs in her fashion loving stash.  This set has great possibilities for super fun cards to share with your fellow fashion divas!  I repeatedly stamped the sexy pump from Retail Therapy and combined it with the other fun shoe images from Pretty Momma.  The sentiment is from Retail Therapy – I cut it with my handy dandy scissors to make it so that it spread more across the main panel.  That’s one of the things that I love most about clear stamps!

Karolyn Ovals

Next is a card I made using Wicked Nauticool (released on April 1st).  The Wicked Nauticool set has coordinating Wicked Nauticool dies, which made creating this project uber easy!  I also used the new nesting Ovals 1 Dies that were released in April – every stamping stash needs nesting ovals so if you don’t own any, you so need to add these to your arsenal!

Karolyn Baby Shower Dies   Shindig

Lastly, I’d like to share a card using another stamp set that was released in April – Shindig.  This set is the perfect sentiment and invitation creating set that is super versatile!  I used it here to create a baby shower invitation.  The onesie, heart and baby pin dies were also new dies that were released in April.  The stamped images (besides the sentiment) are from the previously released Pip Squeaks stamp set – it coordinates perfectly with the Baby Shower Dies (the heart is from the Wedding Shower Dies).  I cut all of the monochromatic circles with my Silhouette Cameo.

Well, that’s it for me today, friends.  I’m off to crop with my bestie.  I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll be able to stay focused enough to get completely caught up on all of my deadlines!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Each one is darling. I am particularly in love with the baby shower card. All of those blue die cuts are so charming on the circles!

Karoyln, you amaze me! Three different cards, three different messages, three different occasions...and you nailed every one of them!

I really do have to get the retail therapy set, if not just for my sis as she has nine million pairs of shoes!

Awesome colors on your nautical themed card (totally all the rage right now!). The baby card has me saying 'why didn't I think of that'...reminds me of the little burps/bubbles that needed to get gently coaxed out of their bellies!
