Hi bloggers! Happy Wednesday to you! I’m so thrilled to have the super sweet & talented Kim Hughes, of Paper Smooches with us! The whimsical designs of Paper Smooches always make me smile, especially this lovable little apple. I’m so in love! Below Kim shares a fabulous new card made with new releases and shares a few insider tips & ideas!

Enjoy!

PS SSS card NEW

 Ideas to note:

  1. You can cut down flower dies to make flat bottom clouds. Or, there is a great Clouds die set as well!  There are tons of shape options depending on where you cut the die.
  2. I stamped some curly clouds to add a touch of whimsey.
  3. I popped up the top cloud to help it stand out.
  4. Use this design to make cards for all four seasons.

I love buds on trees, so I wanted to show how versatile our new leaves and tree dies are even though they are a fall release.  We have a TON of cloud stamp options. You will find clouds on the following stamp sets:

Supplies:

I just love FALL… it’s my favorite season! So as a bonus, I had to share this Autumn interpretation from Kim. Isn’t it gorgeous?

  1. The Welcome card is just gorgeous. Its so simple and reminds me of something that a child would draw (don’t mean to say that it looks like a child did it…) it just has that child-like quality to it that I love. Beautiful!

  2. Love the tip to cut off bottom of flowers to make flat bottom clouds. Love, love, love all those colorful big leaves on that tree. Don’t think I would have thought to use the big size and it looks great.

  3. the ‘you color my world’ card with the fab fall trees is wonderful because it reminds me of the lovely tree colors we get around here every year. thank you for the inspiration! :)

  4. ADORE Paper Smooches…always use their critters and sentiment sets. Gonna have to have Fanciful Fall and accompaning dies as well.

  5. What fun cards! Love Paper Smooches, their stamps always make me smile. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Cute stamps and the dies are wonderful. The cards are beautiful and fun, they will make the receiver smile!

  7. Hi Guys!! Heads Up, something is going on with YOUR SSS blog during Stamptember. I can not comment on half of the things I get through the news letter. The comment block is missing. I can click on 144 comments and it gives me nothing. Some of them are available, like this one with the trees. Jennifer McGuires new embossing and glitter is one of them. There is no “contact us” on your blog, so I’m posting it here. Thanks, and I’m on ipad 2 if that helps.

    These Trees are adorable btw!!

  8. I love fall but I now live in Phoenix AZ where all the season look the same. I love these cards they are very colorful great job!
