Paper Smooches Sneak Peek



Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January.  37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton for projects to inspire you this month.  Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps.  They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps! 

I have a project to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.

You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS Blog.

Paper Smooches is giving away $500. Worth of product!  Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100. each. The prize includes a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts and dies. Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners.

Deadline is January 30th – winners will be announced on the PS Blog on January 31st.

Let's get on to today's sneak peek. I get to play with one of the new die set called Flourishes. And, here's how I used it.



This die set has 3 flourishes in it. But, for my card I only used 2 of the 3 flourishes as I don't want the bird tail to be  too big or too much. And on purpose I didn't glue the curl end of the flourishes so it pop off the card and gives movement to the tail.

What do you think of this die set? I have lots of fun playing with it and what I like about it is that you can use it for elegant looking project or fun looking project. I love the way it gives my bird a funky & stylish edge.

Hope you're enjoying today's sneak peek. Thank you for celebrating along with Paper Smooches as they expanding their line and thank you for stopping by here. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
