Paper Smooches Exclusives with Kim Hughes!

Hi Bloggers! Happy Saturday! I'm so excited to bring you TWO exclusive cards made by Kim Hughes, owner & illustrator of Paper Smooches!! They have recently expanded their brand to add in steel cut dies and wood mounted stamps and these two cards below incorporate some of these new releases!

Shop the new dies & wood mounted stamps:



Do you ever see something and instantly smile? That is what happens to me EVERY time I see this sweet little Ava Apple stamp. Seriously. I definitely need it in my collection, and was so happy when I saw that Kim used it in this adorable card above!

This beautiful card incorporates some new 'wise dies' from Paper Smooches and some bright pops of color that leave me longing for spring.
