Cute Fruit and Thanks
-Fun Tutorials with Paper Smooches-

Don't you smile every time you see a project using cute images? I do! I couldn't resist playing with these sweet, sweet images from Paper Smooches recently and just had to share with you what I came up with using them.

Today I have 2 projects and tutorials to share with you. They were also created for my Fun Friday edition on social media.

First I made a card that features a fun multicolor stamping technique and a bunch of cute fruit in bright neon colors. Check out the tutorial HERE.

I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
