{Paper Smooches} Kibitzing Two and Kibitzing Icons


I love that there are now Hanukkah dies in the Paper Smooches collection! Today's card showcases the new Kibitzing Two stamp set and coordinating Kibitzing Icons dies. If you already own the retiring 3x4 sets, Kibitzing Sampler and Kibitzing Icons stamp sets, you can simply purchase the new Kibitzing Icons dies for the images in the original 3x4 stamp set.


I watercoloured the dreidels after heat embossing them with gold tinsel embossing powder. Then I used the Stitched Flourishes and Stitched Flourishes 2 dies on the card base to give the dreidels their twirling movement. To finish, I flecked a wet brush with black watercolour paint on the background and added black enamel dots and blue and gold sequins to embellish the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Paper Smooches} Wake Up Icons


I'm thrilled to be back with the Paper Smooches team after a long hiatus, which I took to get my health back on track. I do have more tests coming up but I'm staying positive. I've really missed creating for this team and my mojo's been bursting at the seams! Today's card features the new Wake Up Icons, which coordinates with the long-loved Wake Up stamp set. It's so nice to break out those older sets and use them in new ways. I love big breakfasts and I'm lucky that my husband makes them every Saturday and Sunday while I sleep in. ;) Combined with the Fruit People and Stitched Dies, this is the perfect card to wish hubby a nice day!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
