Paper Sweeties October Release Party

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Welcome back, Paper Sweeties friends!  I'm showing off a little more of one of our two new, October Release, stamp sets today, I'm Nuts About You.  I just love how both of these new stamp sets simply ooze with the essence of fall.
I started this card by adhering both an aqua polka dot and maroon, gingham, patterned print to the white, cardstock, card face.  I then overlaid them with partial pieces of die-cut, using our Scallop Squares Sweet Cuts die, vellum scallops, just for a little added interest and texture, before anchoring everything with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The built-in frame, on the gingham paper, was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "I'm nuts about YOU!" sentiment and surrounded with a scattering of stamped, in Jet Black ink, on watercolor paper; watercolored; and hand-cut acorns.  One of those acorns was popped up with foam tape, and they all were given a hint of shine with Glossy Accents.
I then set the prepped piece aside to work on JakeJake was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on watercolor paper; watercolored; hand-cut out; dressed with hand-cut, from patterned prints, clothing; detailed with a white, Gelly Roll pen; and popped up, with foam tape, just to the left of the stamped sentiment and over the cluster of acorns.
A length of Tea seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and embellished with a wood veneer button, laced with a length of white string, tied in a bow, as well as a scattering of Gold sequins, completes the look.
Thanks again for stopping by!  Don't forget to visit my teammates, too; and we'll all be back tomorrow, at the same time and places, to wrap up October Release week and send you on your creative ways.  Until then, have an amazing start to your work weeks!
