Paper Smooches: A Fairy Tale Day

It's a fairy tale kind of day today!!

First, I am the guest designer at Paper Smooches!! Talk about a dream come true.  I have used Kim's stamps since she was with Cornish Heritage Farms years ago.  I was thrilled when I was asked to be the guest designer for September!!

Second, I am using their brand new set Royal Cuteness.  It's full of knights and princesses and even frogs!  So I made a couple of fairy tale style cards!  The first uses a glass slipper.  I have framed it with their Duo Die 1 which I thought had the look of the magic mirror that every princess has to have!!

Deserve the Best

Since I had a magic mirror on my mind and I had the inside of the above die cut - I thought it would work as the actual mirror!!  Here's another fairy tale card using a very charming frog prince!

Hope Your Wish Comes True

There's a little bit of shine on the mirror (in the hope that I am not the only one who sees this die as a magic mirror!!)

Aren't these just the cutest stamps?  I get to post every Wednesday this month at Paper Smooches and in two weeks, I have big plans for the handsome knight in this set!  (But before the handsome knight, I get to play with some Free Spirits - the alcoholic kind!!!)

  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Royal Cuteness
  • Paper: white, scrap of gray stripe
  • Ink: Memento black, Copics
  • Accessories: Paper Smooches Royal Icons die, Duo Die 1, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Avery Elle sequins, Ranger Glossy Accents

I'm beyond excited (as you can see with my excessive use of exclamation marks) that you're a GD with Paper Smooches!!!! You will dazzle us, for sure...and then my shopping list will expand exponentially! Your cards have added sparkle to this *work* day!!
