Paper Smooches July DT Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches July/August release with you!  FIVE new stamps and EIGHT new dies are releasing soon.  Our new stamps and dies will release at midnight (eastern time) on June 30 (12:01am on July 1st EST). You will find our new releases HERE.

To add extra fun to our blog hop...we are offering up a prize! The prize - a $25 gift code to choose what you like at the PS online store. [Details are below.]


Here's the order of the hop:
Here's my card using the Kudos stamps:



You Are Beautiful

I was inspired by Taheerah's awesome card for the background. I stamped the "beautiful" from the Kudos set repeatedly...it's not perfect, which I like. I actually made one that was a little neater and opted to not use it. ;)  I added the "you are" from the Kudos set. I love the bold look of these stamps! They are slightly smaller than Bold Buzzwords, but they would work together. 

I added the super sweet flowers from the new Blossoming Buds set on vellum. I layered the panel over some American Crafts paper, vellum, and tissue. Here's a close-up:

You Are Beautiful
