Paper Smooches Guest Designer ( Week One)

 This is my 2nd post for the day.

Hello friends!  
I am super excited to share my project with you today. 
Thanks to the entry (see here) to the GD search in Feb., I was chosen as the March Guest Designer for Paper Smooches! Even since Paper Smooches made its debut 5 years ago, I have been a fan and it delights me immensely to be the GD this month! 

With the mini release of Paper Smooches new dies and stamps , I got to play and be creative. I chose Cute Cluster for my first project.
 Well, isn't it CUTE!!?

I took out my latest coloring medium, Distress Crayons, and created a bright and bold design.


As you can see, I also used vellum to add layers and interest to the cluster. I love the balance of colors and textures. After I made this card, I realized that my die is upside down from the photo shown in the package. However, I think this die is so versatile, it's to perfectly fine no matter which way you look at it.

Mom, I love You #1

 I purposely saved all the bits and pieces of the die and added bright colors by wetting my fingers with the Distress Crayons. I stamped the sentiment with the help of MISTI in various ink colors.
The sentiment die is called Mom Word Wise Dies.


 A card like this for Moms is good for any time of the year.


My next 3 Paper Smooches Guest Design posts will be on all Wednesdays of March. Yay!
