Paper Sweeties May Release Sneak Peek

Monday, May 13, 2019

Evening, y'all; and welcome to the work week!  I'm thrilled to be here today, sharing a project made for Paper Sweeties' May Release week.  Debbie has designed two new stamp sets, Basket Add-On: Thinking of You and Truck Add-On: Life Is An Adventure, and their coordinating dies to wet your creative appetites this month.  So, let's just jump right in to how Thinking of You inspired me.  Shall we?
I started this card by stamping a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, in Antique Linen Distress Ink, with the gorgeous row of blossoms, masking and layer-stamping as I went.  I then watercolored the entire piece before topping it with a torn, across its bottom edge, strip of vellum, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "Thinking of you" sentiment.
In turn, that torn and stamped piece of vellum was then topped with a strip of silver, glitter paper, as well as a stamped, in London Fog Distress Ink, with that same stunning row of blooms image, once again, masking and layer-stamping to complete an entire row, strip of Bordering Blue cardstock.
The entire prepped piece was then anchored, to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of white cardstock, with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  A length of white string was wrapped, three times, around the stitched piece, between the stamped, cardstock strip and the silver, glitter, paper strip and tied, in a bow, just right of vertical center.  Everything was then adhered, to the white, cardstock, card face, with foam tape.  A quartet of clear gemstones completes the look.
I'd love to have you join me again at the same time tomorrow to see how I was inspired by Life Is An Adventure.  Between now and then, please be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the team has cooked up for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks, as always, for humbling me with a visit, friends!  Be blessed!
