Paper Sweeties November Release Party

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Welcome back, y'all!  I'm thrilled that you all have come back to see a little more of what Paper Sweeties' newest release, Merry, has to offer.  So let's just get right to it.  Shall we?
I started this card by stamping a grid, patterned print, in Lucky Limeade, Bashful Blue, Strawberry Slush, and Barely Banana inks, repeatedly, with four of the words from Merry; trimming its bottom edge with a festive, black and white, text print; and framing them both with a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The "Sending you a HUG in a MUG" sentiment, from But First, Coffee, was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a lime label and adhered in the bottom center of the prepped piece.
The space between the two prints was then wrapped with a length of white string, tied in a bow to the left side of the card face; before I secured everything, to the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.
A snippet of cheesecloth adds delicious texture behind the mug and cupcake images, which were stamped on watercolor paper die cuts, watercolored, and popped up with foam tape.  Both of these images come from the Homemade with Love stamp set.  A little Glossy Accents provides just the right amount of shine for both the coffee/hot cocoa and berries...
and a trio of white-embossed, on vellum, snowflakes, from Snow Friends, Sweet Treats, and Homemade with Love, were scattered across the top portion of the design to complete the look.
I have a little something different, for you all, tomorrow, to wrap up release week... something that puts these playfully typed words/phrases to work without paper.  Until then, thanks, as always, for stopping by; and have a blessed day!
