Showing Off Paper Smooches CHA Release and a Hidden Giveaway!

Playing with the new Design Motifs stamp set!













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 for 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 project to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 atwww.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
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 was sent the fabulous Design Motifs set to play with! I love making backgrounds with stamps, and this entire set is filled with graphic shapes that are perfect for color layering, making patterns or a fun and funky design element!

I used the large arrow to build a chevron with Lemonade Adirondack ink, Tsukineko Glue Pad and Doodlebug yellow glitter. Thanks stamp is from Sentiment Sampler, the flowers were fussy cut from a  piece of Crate Paper and the wood heart button is by Prima. 

Thanks for taking time to enjoy the Paper Smooches Designer tour, and good luck with finding blog prize packages!

Happy Stamping!
