Paper Sweeties: Peek

Friday, August 31, 2012

We're back with another, little peek, alluding to nine, brand new, Paper Sweeties stamp sets, coming to your door the middle of September.  And I'm absolutely thrilled to share that Debbie has designed a darling, little boy, named Jake, to compliment her ever-growing collection.  So, that's who I'd like to introduce you to today, and I've decked him out to honor our military heroes.
I started this card by piecing together the blue graphic and red, star-burst, patterned papers; trimming their center with a strip of star, patterned paper, as well as a die cut strip of red, glitter paper; adhering the resulting piece to the Night of Navy, cardstock, card base; and machine stitching, with both navy-threaded, straight and zig-zag stitches, around their edges and between their connections.  I then tucked a sweet, little, mini envelop in the bottom left corner of the design...
before stamping the "You're My Hero" sentiment, in Jet Black ink, on a kraft "SPECIAL DELIVERY" tag, that we actually received, last Christmas, on a delicious, Rum Cake, gift package.
I then trimmed it with a denim ribbon, embellished with a red button, laced with a duet of hemp twine bows, and adhered that tag, with foam tape, in the bottom right corner of the design.
Now, let's get a closeup look at Jake.  He was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on white cardstock; colored in with colored pencils and mineral spirits; hand cut out; dressed in a military uniform, created in the same way as Jake himself and embellished with little, Crystal Effects buttons; and adhered, with foam tape, just to the left of the "SPECIAL DELIVERY" tag, to complete the look.
That gets you started, y'all!  But we'd just love to you all come on back, for our September Release, beginning September 14, 2012, and ending September 16, 2012.  Until then, please be sure to stop by the Paper Sweeties Blog, as well as the rest of the team's blogs to see what they've cooked up, just for your viewing pleasure.  Then, be sure to have a look around the Paper Sweeties Online Store to see what sweet, little stamp sets have already been released, as well as our Flickr Pool and Pinterest Boards to see what everyone is making with these darling stamps.  We're also thrilled to share that we've got a brand new online gallery at Paper Craft Planet.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy stamping, y'all!
