Paper Sweeties May Release Party

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Welcome, friends!  I promised to be back today with a project inspired by one of the new, Paper Sweeties, May Release, stamp sets, Truck Add-On: Life Is An Adventure; and I'm here now to deliver.  Enjoy!
I started this project by stamping the camper image, in Jet Black ink, on a white, cardstock die cut and paper-piecing all the colorful bits and baubles.  The little bird...
as well as the trees from Home Is Where Your Story Begins and Merry Christmas Y'all, were created in the exact same way as the camper itself.  Everything was then popped off a blue speckled print, which had been anchored, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, to the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.
The "You make me a HAPPY CAMPER" sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, just above the camper; and a length of Baker's Twine was wrapped, three times, around the top edge of the card and tied, in a bow, just to the right of the stamped sentiment, for a little extra texture.  A trio of silver stars and kisses of Glossy Accents, used throughout the design for shine and dimension, complete the look.
Thanks, once again, for visiting, y'all!  Be sure to do the same for the rest of this talented Design Team, and we'll all see you back, at the same time and places, for one final day of projects, inspired by the May Release, tomorrow.  Until then, have a wonderful Wednesday!
