Hey friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far! Can you believe it’s the end of October already? I can’t! But here we are! I do have to admit that even though it’s a bit early for Christmas and holiday decorations (at least for me), I absolutely love making holiday cards. So this latest Paper Smooches release has been giddy for the next couple of months! Hope you enjoy!

It’s Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches NOVEMBER 2016 release with you!  ONE new stamp sets and FIVE new dies will be available to purchase at 8:00pm PT on October 31st.  You will find our new products HERE once they go live.

I used the Be Merry stamp set which features lots of adorable sentiments. I also used one of my favorite winter sets, Fresh Snow for all of the snowflakes. I embossed them in white and then blended 3 different ink colors over top to create a fun rainbow effect. Some clear sequins were the final touch!



I hope you enjoyed this card as well as all the other fabulous ladies on this blog hop! All of the products I used to create this card are listed below!

Thanks so much for joining me!
