Paper Sweeties April Release Party

Saturday, April 14, 2018

Welcome back, y'all!  I hope you're all enjoying your weekends!  I got all that painting done, that I mentioned in an earlier post, and am thrilled to be on to the next step of our kitchen renovation.  I'll post another update soon for those of you who have been diligently following along; but for now, I've got another creation to share for Paper Sweeties' April Release of the Sweeties Pets Sweet Cuts die.  Here goes!
I started this card by layering a "LOVE LIFE" journaling card over a torn piece of pink, heart, patterned paper, which was, in turn, layered over a piece of aqua, stripe, patterned paper.  All the papers were then anchored, to the white, cardstock, card face, with pink-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitching.  Emma was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on watercolor paper; watercolored; hand-cut out; and dressed in a stamped, in Jet Black ink, and hand-cut, fruity nightgown.  She was then detailed with a white, Jelly Roll pen, as well as Glossy Accents for her hair ties and Dazzling Diamonds for her bunny slippers and nightgown trim, and popped up, with foam tape, just to the right of the "LOVE LIFE" phrase.  The darling, Sweeties Pets kitten was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut; watercolored; also detailed with a white, Jelly Roll pen; and popped up, with foam tape, at Emma's feet.
The "Happiness is... You" sentiment, from Sweeties Pets and I Love You, was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a pink label and adhered just to the right of Emma and above her kitten.
A length of Bubblegum seam binding ribbon, wrapped around the top of the card face; tied in a double bow; and embellished with a lone pearl, backed with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow, completes the look.
I hope to see you back, at the same time and place, tomorrow for one more day of Sweeties Pets goodness.  In the meantime, be sure to pop in to visit the rest of this talented team.  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit!  XOXO
