Celebrating 5 years with Paper Smooches





Paper Smooches in celebrating their 5th Anniversary this month!

I am so excited to be a part of this special blog hop! I love Paper Smooches products, and Kim is one of my favorite people :)  Today I am using one of the NEW products released this month.

For my card, I used the beautiful new Botanicals 2 stamp set and dies along with a fun sentiment set called Fun & Flirty. I stamped all the leaves in different shades of pinks and purples. Now my Mom would look at this and ask "why are all the leaves pink and purple?" She thinks leaves are green, but in my awesomely colorful world, leaves are any color I want them to be :)


I added some details to the leaves with my Copic markers and my white gel pen. I splattered the white panel with some purple ink for a little background interest.


I adhered all of the leaves to a white panel then trimmed about an inch off of the bottom making the leaves all flush with the edge. I then mounted this to my card base over some patterned paper and a thin strip of dark purple card stock. The sentiment was stamped at the top with dark purple ink.
