Hello Friends! It’s Day 12 of the coloring challenge which brings a big blog hop and giveaways. Woo Hoo! I am grateful to add extra fun to our blog hop…there is a prize! Paper Smooches images make me smile; they are filled with whimsy. The sentiments are fun fonts, sometimes mixing bolded words. Simply put, I love them! You could win a $25 gift code to use at the Paper Smooches online store.
If you are new to the coloring challenge I have more information on the bottom of my post .
When I say I am excited that Kim has released these new stamps and dies … that’s an understatement. For the past year Kim was working on her store in AZ that’s amazing. I was lucky enough to take my Road Trip to the store last year. I was blown away and I can’t wait to go back!! Now that the store has had it’s first BD Kim is designing again. Woo Hoooo!!
I am thrilled to be able to share with you that Paper Smooches has a new stamp set and FOUR new dies! They will be available to purchase on February 14th (10am Central time zone).
Well my stamps didn’t arrive in time but, the die cuts did. I used up some of my wood veneer envelops to die cut the scalloped circle die cut. I glued to layers of white fun foam on the back of the wood veneer to pop it up.
I had my cards panels ready for when the postman might deliver my stamps but, alas … he arrived empty handed. Notice the irregular scallop on the circle? Love it! There is a collection of banners released and you can see them all in the Paper Smooches store.
This stamp set called, “Garden Greetings” was on my “must color list” so today was perfect to ink it up.
I did some quick coloring with my Copic markers and then refined the lines and added debth & accents with some SHARP pencils. Yesterday I shared some pencil tips. Some of you asked my favorite pencil sharpener and I like this one. Still looking for a favorite tho.
Adding some white with a gel pen on the finished letters is easy.
