Paper Smooches Blog HUG for Kim

Hi ya, all! I am here for a special BLOG HUG for the one and only and super sweet and talented Kim from Paper Smooches! I hope you have arrived from Jill's Blog for this fun Blog Hug! If not, you can see the full Blog Hug list over on Jill's Blog and please don't hesitate to leave some love along the way!

I think I am not the only one that feels sad about Kim closing her iconic Paper Smooches shop, but life happens and Kim is off to a greater adventure and I am very happy for her. She is one of the sweetest and the most organized team leader/boss that I have ever worked with for as long as I have been making cards. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Kim, for entrust in me with your fabulous art works for the past few years. It is always a pleasure to work with your super cute images and I am going to miss doing it!

Now, onto the card that I made for Kim. Kim's last few designs were super on trend and these two were probably my most favorites! The stained-glass look with one of the I Heart You dies was time consuming, but it was worth it! 

The background with modeling paste and Distress Glitter was created using the fun Swoosh stencil.

That's all for now. Continue the Blog Hug for Kim with Karin, or you can start the Blog Hug from Jill's Blog. Also, don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches Blog to leave Kim some love!

Have fun blog hugging and thanks for stopping by!

I feel tears trying to start loading up into my eyes. How am I going to finish this hop? It's a joy to see your inlaid die cut/stain glass technique. I still have not really done this whole technique yet but yours is inspiring me! Thank you for your creations using Kim's products. It's a joy to see them!
