Paper Sweeties June Release Sneak Peek

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Evening, y'all!  I'm stopping in today to kick off Paper Sweeties' June Release sneak peeks.  We've got a new add-on stamp set, with coordinating dies, to complement last month's Treat Box Sweet Cuts die for you all; and I've whipped it into a sweet, little, "thank you" house that would be perfect for holding a gift card.  Check it out!
I started this project by die-cutting two of the treat boxes from textured, Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  I then stamped it, in Cherry Cobbler ink, with the brick lines and white-washed the walls with Titanium White acrylic paint.  Once it was dry, I used glossy accents to erect the walls.  The door was them stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a white, cardstock die-cut and adhered to one end of the box itself.  It was further embellished with die-cut, Bashful Blue, cardstock, window inserts; a Basic Black, cardstock doorknob, dressed up with Glossy Accents; and a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor, paper die cut, bird, which was, in turn, watercolored and popped up, with foam tape, above the door itself.
The sides of the house each received the same window dressing.  The windows themselves were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on white, cardstock die cuts and embellished with die-cut, Bashful Blue, cardstock, window inserts and white, cardstock shutters, as well as a white, cardstock window box, filled with stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a watercolor, paper die cut, flowers.  The flowers themselves were watercolored, given a hint of shimmer and shine with Clear Wink of Stella, and popped up with foam tape.
The scalloped, roof strips were then die-cut from Crumb Cake cardstock and layered, with one slightly overlapping the other, on both sides of the house before tying it closed with a length of Frosting seam binding ribbon, from the shop, tied in a double bow.  A length of Baker's Twine, laced through a Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts, die-cut, white, cardstock tag, which was stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "thank you", from the Thank You stamp set, sentiment, completes the look.
I also couldn't resist stamping the back of the tag, in Jet Black ink, with the "you are MY PERSON" phrase, from Kindness Matters, just for fun.
I hope you like what you're seeing so far.  These little houses are too fun to make and so full of options!  Thanks so much for visiting! I hope to see you all right back here tomorrow for a little more of what our June stamp set and coordinating dies have to offer.  In the meantime, be sure to stop in to see what the rest of the Design Team has whipped up just for your viewing pleasure.  Be blessed!
