Paper Smooches Sneak!

Ah… it’s CHA time! That means a ton of new products from some awesome companies. Today I have a peek at a new lovely from Paper Smooches!

So this whole month, Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release. Every single day, their blog will have links to new products and cards. They will also be giving away $500 worth of product! (See below.) Get this – 37 designers are participating along with the PS design team, so there will be a ton for projects to inspire.

You know how much I love the fun and whimsical hand-drawn look of Paper Smooches clear stamps. Well, now they have broadened their product line to include dies (YAY!) and wood mount stamps! I am on cloud 9. My friend Kim at PS sent me their many new goodies and they are incredible. They all have the look that is true and signature to PS.

Today I get to use and share with you my absolute favorite product from their big new release that will be available everywhere 2/1 – the Spiritual Sampler stamp set. This is filled with great Christian greetings. Playful yet encouraging. I love them.

So the greeting on this is from the Spiritual Sampler. Boy… I can see myself using this greeting a lot.

Oh, and the background was created with an older Paper Smooches set – the Daisies and Paisleys. I white heat embossed everything on watercolor paper and then added coloring with my Inktense pencils. I made sure to use a lot of water with them for a watercolor-look. It really is soft in real life…

And I decided to make another quick one with another greeting from the Spiritual Sampler. There are lots of words you can piece together to create your own message… which I used here…

It’s amazing how easily a card can come together when you have an awesome image. And with greetings like this? So easy. I just used a rainbow of Hero Arts inks…

I tell ya – you will love this stamp set!
