Paper Smooches May Blog Hop

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for My Favorite Things Color Challenge #22. Thanks! =)

Hello, all! I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the Paper Smooches Design Team! =) Thank you for having me, Kim! I am still pinching myself because all the ladies on Kim's team are some of the best and what an honor to work with them! Ok, I'll stop fan-girling and get to details for the hop! =)

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches JUNE release with you! FOUR new stamps and EIGHT new dies will be available to purchase on May 31st at 8:00pm Pacific Time. Once our release goes live, you will find our new products 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!

Here are the details:
  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog to win the $25 prize.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed below or the PS Blog for your chance to win! (You do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify, but it increases your chances.)
  • Deadline: You have until midnight PT on Sunday, May 31st to leave a comment.
  • Please check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday, June 1st to see if you are one of the FOUR lucky winners.
A couple of our designers are taking a small hiatus to care for different things in their life. Julia Stainton is filling in for Emily and Kristina Werner is filing in for Pamela. We are so excited to have them join us in June!

Alice Wertz ----- That's me! =)

To increase your chances of winning:
  • Tell us that you Facebooked about our blog hop.
  • Tell us that you Tweeted about our hop.
  • Tell us that you posted on your blog about our blog hop.
(Which means that you  have up to three extra chances to win on each blog!)


One of the dies sets being released in June is the matching dies for the super fun Squeaky Clean set. Sigh. Those dies make my life so much easier especially with my no-line colored images!


The washing machine and laundry detergent are stamping with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers. Seriously, if we had a red washing machine, I'd probably like doing laundry a lot more! =)


I smooshed Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks for the background. The sentiment comes with the Squeaky Clean set.

That's all I have. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win! =)

Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!

Your no-line coloring is astonishing. Got to give a try to this background technique. it seems to be very fashionable these days. Another PS wonderful release. Cheers

Debra said...

Beautiful colors and design.

PaperDoll said...

You really brought this stamp set to life, with the "non-outlined" look you achieved by stamping with Antique Linen ink instead of a basic black! This is a technique I really must try, because it makes images look entirely different, & have a beautiful water-color feel to them that I just love!
