Paper Sweeties February Release Sneak Peeks

Thursday, February 12, 2015

Hello again!  I'm super excited to be back this month showcasing a gorgeous, new release for Paper Sweeties!  It includes two new stamp sets, Garden Time and Pretty Posies, and their coordinating dies and simply oozes springtime.  So, let's just get right to it!
I started this card by trimming the left edge of a piece of aqua, text, patterned paper with a strip of multicolored, floral, patterned paper and ink distressing their combined edges.  I then anchored them, to a piece of Kraft cardstock, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches, before stamping the vase, which was adhered in the bottom center of the aqua, text paper, in Jet Black ink, on vellum.  It was then topped with a trio of blooms, stamped, in Jet Black ink, on yellow, polka dot, patterned, paper die cuts and flanked with stamped, in Jet Black ink, on raindrop, patterned, paper die cuts, leaves.  I couldn't help but throw in a few Cookie Dough sequins from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe, too.
Before securing the prepped piece, to the White, cardstock, card face, with foam tape, I stamped the bottom right corner, in Jet Black ink, with the word "Friend".
The top left corner was dressed up with a little Frosting seam binding ribbon, embellished with a black, gingham, ribbon bow, as well as an ivory button, laced with a hemp twine bow.
A stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, "Wish Big" sentiment was framed with a bit of red chipboard, which was secured in place with a couple of black brads, and completes the look.
That gets us started, friends.  I hope you like what you see and will join us every day of the release.  Paper Sweeties is near and dear to my heart, and I'm so grateful for every opportunity I get to show you why.  Thanks so much for dropping in!  Be sure to stop by the Design Team's blogs to see what they've cooked up for your viewing pleasure, and I'll see you right back here at the same time tomorrow.  Hugs!
