Paper Smooches NEW PRODUCT Feature GIVEAWAY

Hello, friends:}

***HUGE giveaway details below!!! 


I am THRILLLLLLLLED to be joining in the fun with Kim and the Paper Smooches team for the PS New Product sneak peeks!!!

DETAILS and GIVEAWAY info: 
Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January. 37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton of projects to inspire you this month!! Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps. They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps

I have a couple of projects to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.

You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS blog {HERE}.  Paper Smooches is giving away $500 worth of product!!!!! Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100 each. The prize includes a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts, and dies. Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners!!! Deadline is January 30th--winners will be announced on the PS blog on January 31st. 

I'm sharing several creations today--I just LOVE LOVE LOVE my PS stamps! I was lucky enough to get the new Ampersand dies {which coordinate with the We Connect stamp set} to play with. LOVE!!! I made a CAS card for my first card. I used THIS technique and reversed it...so it's a reverse dry embossing with a die. 
Close-up of reverse dry embossing technique/result

I made another simple card using some Pebbles With Love papers and the PS ampersand die and two other PS stamps. 
I also made a mini card using Basic Grey papers {available HERE from the RC} and the PS SpookaliciousFOLKal Points, and We Connect stamp sets.
This forth card uses My Mind's Eye papers as well as red ribbon {available HERE from the Ribbon Carousel}. I used the PS We Connect, Vogue Abode, and Falling For You stamp sets.

For my last card, I paired the ampersand dies with sentiments from the PS Chit Chat and Falling For You stamp sets, as well as papers from My Mind's Eye. LOOOOOVE
There's SOOOOOOO much you can do with these dies! LOOOOOOOVE Paper Smooches stamps! 

That's it for me today! Be sure to leave comments here and on the PS blog for your chance to win!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
