Paper Smooches Floral, Flirty & Fun

In the card above and below I have used custom colored alcohol ink panels to die-cut the Paper Smooches rose (above) and sentiment from Kudos Words dies (below).

This was an earlier card from the winter where I used the Paper Smooches Rose die paired with Lilypad digital papers, Memory Box leaf, and various embellishments.

This Paisleys die!  Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it as the inlaid-die paper piecing options were endless, and I love layering and in-laid die cuts.  Here I mixed The Lilypad digital paper with Basic Grey’s Urban Luxe papers.  I cut the Retro Arrows cover die down a bit to fit the smaller panel. The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Fun and Flirty set, stamped on vellum in navy and embossed.  I tried the card façade on a tan, Peanut Cluster (Bazzill) cardstock and Fuse green stock from MFT.  Which do you prefer?  I like both, as the green gives it a kick, but the tan makes the main colors and die cuts really stand out.

Below, a variation on a theme with the Retro Arrows die.  A masculine card that is modern, fresh but still suitable for a guy.  Love how the cover die can be paired with so many of the sentiments from the Fun and Flirty set.

The photo corners are also from Paper Smooches Toppers Dies set and one of my mainstays in card making.

Below, I used an old stamped piece from a previous card and gave it a new lease on life!  The camera and sentiment are from Paper Smooches set We Totally Click.  I Copic-colored the camera.  I made the flair from a clear epoxy sticker and digitally printed flair button.  So excited to make my own flair using all my different papers!

This little guy also was made new with a different background paper and base.

Lastly, this is an older card I made for my mom to commemorate our trip to Paris in 1995.  I wrapped the Eiffel Tower in flowers from Paper Smooches Flowers set.
