Paper Sweeties May Release Rewind

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Hey, y'all!  It's the third and final day of Paper Sweeties' May Release week; and before you're off to picking up some new goodies, if you haven't done so already, I'd love to share one last project with you all.
I started this card by masking and stamping the clouds, from Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and tree, from Home Is Where Your Story Begins, in Jet Black ink, on a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper.  I then watercolored the entire piece, along with additional strips of punched, grass, and added lots of Clear Wink of Stella to the clouds before securing everything, to a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching and popping it off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face with foam tape.
The camper image, from Truck Add-On: Life Is An Adventure, was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a piece of watercolor paper.  The design on the image came from the florals in Basket Add-On: Thinking of You and a bit of a tie-die, watercolor wash.  The remainder of the elements used to form the camper, which was hand-cut out and popped up, with foam tape, between the layers of watercolored grass, were die-cut, from cardstock and patterned prints respectively, using the Truck Add-On: Life Is An Adventure Sweet Cuts die.  A pretty, little package, watercolored in gold and doused in Clear Wink of Stella, was placed on the stoop of the camper.  The sign was stamped, in Crumb Cake ink, on a die cut, from woodgrain, patterned paper, using the Basket Add-On: Thinking of You Sweet Cuts die, and stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "#party" sentiment from Hugs & Kisses.
The balloon trio, also from Hugs & Kisses, was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on watercolor paper die cuts; watercolored; popped up, in their respective position, with more foam tape; and dressed up with lot of Clear Wink of Stella, as well as a little Glossy Accents, to complete the look.  Oh!  And I don't want to forget to mention that a number of the elements here looked a little too "fresh" or "bright" for my liking; so I brushed over them with a little, Titanium White, acrylic paint on a dry brush just to soften or distress them a bit.
Without further adieu, here are the fabulous newbies we've been talking about all week.  Just click on the images below to take you right to them.
There you have it, folks!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for supporting my creative adventures every step of the way.  This is my final project as a member of the Paper Sweeties Design Team.  I'm ever so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve on such a talented team and for such an extraordinary owner.  My heart is simply being pulled in a number of other directions that, at this time, happen to not be papercrafty in nature.  I promise to share what I can; but for privacy reasons, I simply won't be as active in many social avenues.  I'm not leaving entirely, though.  Creating is in my blood.  So, I will, no doubt, continue to be posting projects right here on my blog and trust that you will continue to follow along with wherever this life may take me.  Bye for now!  Thanks again, and be blessed!
