Paper Sweeties: Peek

Sunday, September 30, 2012

I'm so thrilled to be here, today, sharing a little of what Paper Sweeties has in store, for you all, for October!  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping a piece of ivory, lace, patterned paper, in Jet Black ink, with the sunflowers, which were then colored in with colored pencils and mineral spirits and later had their centers glittered.
I then trimmed its right edge with a piece of red, wheat, patterned paper; framed the resulting piece with a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock; secured a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a red, plaid, patterned paper, banner, which was filled in with the stamped, in Jet Black ink, "Happy Fall Ya'll", which I just LOVE to pieces, in its top left corner; and anchored everything with brown-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches, before adhering it to the kraft, cardstock, card face.  A trio of leaves, stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red, and Daffodil Delight inks...
point to the stamped, in Jet Black ink, on white cardstock; paper-pieced; colored in with colored pencils and mineral spirits; and hand cut out scarecrow, which was anchored with stacked foam tape.  A basket of apples, labeled with a "25 cent" sign, prepared in the same way as above, and given a little shine with Crystal Effects, flanks the scarecrow's right side...
and a trio of red buttons, laced with hemp twine, complete the look.
That wets your appetite, y'all; but I hope you'll join us, on October 14, 15, and 16th, for a whole line-up of brand new, stamp sets that ooze fall in their every ounce.  Before you're off to whatever has you running, please, take a minute to see what the rest of this ever so talented team has whipped up, below and over at the Paper Sweeties Blog, just for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be blessed!
