I'm featuring the Sushi Die, which is about one-and-a-half times the length of the sushi stamp from Calorie Free. This die is a dream come true for sushi lovers! You can colour or paper piece it to your heart's content. I watercoloured the inner pieces and overlaid a solid black outline to make everything pop. The Polished hand die is also watercoloured and I double-stamped a sentiment from Think Fast. Anyone want to go for sushi? Yes, please!


Links for new release items will be added as soon as the products go live in stores.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!!
