Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Smooch


Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am pscyhed to be part of the Baker's Dozen's first debut of the Center of Attention Product Spotlight - where this month Taylor is featuring the awesome product Smooch.

This is my first time using the Smooch Product and I love how quickly it gives the image an awesome sheen and texture and it. Its way different than Stickles or anything like that because the color almost blends in with the image and makes it look all shiny, pearly and sheeny - almost like its part of the image and not glitter added on. Its so simple and easy to use and dries so quick and I love the fine tipped brush that's able to get in the nooks and crannies :)

I used it on three different projects today - the first one that I used it on was on the image of this house for a thinking of you card. I love this cute little house from the Frightful Night stamp set from Taylored Expressions and cut out the clouds from the Year of Sweets I . The sentiment is from a Year of Sweet Sentiments I colored the house with some copics and then applied the Smooch product over it for some sheeny yumminess :) I didn't have a chance to take a before and after picture for this one - but I hope you can see the pearlyness of the smooch:


Card Details:
Paper: Prisma Color Cardstock from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Frightful Night for the House and Year of Sweets I for the Clouds fromTaylored Expressions and sentiment is from: Year of Sweet Sentiments
Ink: Ruby Red
Accessories: Scallop Punch from SU!, Circle punch from CM, copics , corner rounder, liquid pearls, dimensionals and Smooch in the color: Pool.

I love this blue Smooch called POOL and immediately thought of putting it on water - and used the Places You Will Go Stamp Set for this card using the SCS sketch for this week: SC246. I loved using the Smooch for this product - it was just the perfect little touch:

This is a before and after picture of the water with and without the SMooch:

The last card that I made uses the same stamp set and uses Taylor's awesome sketch from last week: Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #82 and this time use the Smooch product with a mask for an edging for the paper. This was a really fun way to create an edge with the same layer.

This a before and after picture of the Smooch on the Balloon:

Accessories: Spellbinders, copics, corner rounder, liquid pearls, dimensionals, buttons from TE and Smooch in the color: Pool

The one tip that I would have when using this product is to just put a thin layer first and let it dry and then put on a second layer - this way it dries faster. i can't wait to use it more and am excited to use it on some scrapbook pages. The only thing that I wish they could add to this product is a coordinating nail polish color so that you can match your Smooch as you craft :)

Hope you had fun getting "Smooched" today - and make sure that you check out all the smooch-a-licious projects from the Baker's Dozen:
