Paper Sweeties: Pre-Release

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Welcome to Paper Sweeties' October Release!  We've got eleven... Yes, I said ELEVEN, all-new stamp sets to share, with you all, this month; but since there were just too many cuties to fit in to just a few days, please also be sure to check out my Paper Sweeties: Peek post, as well as my Celebrating WCMD With Paper Sweeties post, to see so much more of what this release has to offer you creative kinds.  And, of course, I'm always playing with them, right here on my blog, throughout the month as well.  With that said, let's just get started.
I started this card stamping the Sweeties Stand, in Jet Black ink, in the bottom center of a piece of Oatmeal cardstock; masking it off and stamping Sophie, in Jet Black ink, sitting behind it; and both coloring them with colored pencils and mineral spirits and paper piecing them with patterned paper and cardstock.  I then stamped the "XOXO", in Riding Hood Red ink, across the top of the prepped piece; adhered it to the Ruby Red, cardstock, card face; and machine stitching, with ivory-threaded, zig-zag stitches, around its edges.
The "Pumpkin Patch" sign was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, hand cut out, and adhered on the front of the Sweeties Stand.
The stand itself was then framed by both a glittered pumpkin, as well as a cornstalk, both of which were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, colored with colored pencils and mineral spirits, hand cut out, and adhered with foam tape.  A couple more pumpkins, prepared in the same way as above, grace the tabletop next to Sophie.
Finally, I tied a length of Pool Party, seaming binding ribbon in a dressy bow and embellished it with a red, heart button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows, as well as a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a yellow, polka dot, patterned paper, tag, which was filled in with the "I Pick You" sentiment and hand cut out, to complete the look.
I'm also linking this one up to ScrapFIT's Step Class #9: Paper Piecing.  That's all, for today, folks!  But I'll be back to share more new goodies, for a Sweeties Friend, with you all, tomorrow.  Until then, please be sure to stop by the Paper Sweeties Blog, as well as the rest of this amazing team's blogs, to see so much more of what this release has to offer.  Prepare to be inspired, and have a blessed day!  Hugs!
