Paper Sweeties April Sneak Peek

Friday, April 13, 2018

Hey, y'all!  I'm so excited to be here tonight, sharing something new from Paper Sweeties!  The Sweeties Pets stamp set came out some time ago; but Debbie has whipped up a Sweeties Pets Sweet Cuts die set to coordinate, and the Design Team and myself are showcasing that over the next few days.  So, let's just dive right in.  Shall we?
I started this card by trimming the bottom of a piece of multicolored, chevron, patterned paper with a piece of aqua, triangle print and filling the space between them with a strip of blue, diamond print.  I then anchored them all, to the white, cardstock, card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching before wrapping them, three times, with a length of white string, tied, in a bow, to the left side of the card face.
I then stamped the sun, from Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and doghouse images, in Jet Black ink, on a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of watercolor paper and watercolored them.  The dog was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor paper die cut; watercolored; and popped up, with foam tape, in its respective position...
just above the "Enjoy the simple things" sentiment which comes from Hugs and Kisses and, too, was stamped in Jet Black ink.  The stamped portion was then splattered with blue, aqua, and yellow watercolors, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints, before being framed with both Barely Banana cardstock and blue-threaded, straight, machine stitches and popped up, with foam tape, in the center of the card face, to complete the look.
Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of my teammates have cooked up for your viewing pleasure; and we'll all be back tomorrow with additional projects, showcasing more of what Sweeties Pets has to offer.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful night, friends!
