Paper Smooches October GD - Part 1


Today's my first post as October Guest Designer for Paper Smooches. I'm so excited to be playing with new stamps and dies and really mixing them up!

First I combined a sentiment from Holiday Cheer with the new Merry Christmas die. The Merry Christmas die was cut in white and coloured with a red Copic. To ensure my mat matched, I coloured it with the same Copic.  Then I cut and coloured some of the adorable Holiday Lights. See how you can actually hang the lights off their string (or a die-cut sentiment!). They were all coloured with copics, given two coats of Wink of Stella and then a top coat of Glossy Accents. Unfortunately, only the green decided to sparkle for the photo!
