Paper Sweeties April Release Rewind

Sunday, April 15, 2018

Hello again, friends!  Just popping back in for the third and final day of Paper Sweeties' April Release week.  As a reminder, we're showing off creations, boasting the brand spankin' new Sweeties Pets Sweet Cuts dies, which are now available in the shop.  Go get 'em, while they're hot!
I started this card by adding a puddle of green watercolors, as well as watercolor splatters, to a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper.  I then stamped it, in Pumice Stone and Jet Black inks respectively, with the rows of paw prints and the "You make me Smile" sentiment from So Sweet of You.
Everything was then splattered, once again, but this time with Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints before being framed with Wild Wasabi cardstock and green-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  I then wrapped the prepped piece, near horizontal center, with a length of Green Apple seam binding ribbon; tied it, in a double bow, near the right edge of the card face; and embellished it with a green button, laced with a length of white string, tied in a bow, before popping the prepped piece up, with foam tape, in the center of the white, cardstock, card face.
The puppy was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on an A Friend Is, watercolor, frame die cut, which had been stamped, in Wild Wasabi ink, with the frame itself, and watercolored.  A little, white, Jelly Roll pen detailing preps it for the card face to which it was adhered with foam tape and just to the left of the embellished bow.  The puppy's bowl and ball were both stamped, in Jet Black ink, on their coordinating, watercolor paper die cuts; watercolored; and popped up, with foam tape, within the frame, to complete the look.
That does it for this month, folks; but we'll all be back again the same time next month.  Thanks, as always, for all of your visits!  Have a terrific, work week!  Hugs!
