Here's another look at the Paper Sweeties new releases, and today is our Release Party, so the new sets are now available for purchase!
To make the tag on this card, I stamped the little bird from the Tree of Life Add-on: Spring stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating Tree of Life Add-on: Spring Sweet Cuts die. The birdcage, from the Tree Of Life stamp set, was stamped onto a small piece of acetate with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with black superfine embossing powder. After cutting two white tags from the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts die set, I die cut the bird cage shape (from the Tree of Life Sweet Cuts die set) in one of the tags, then layered everything up. I had to snip the tail off the bird to make it fit behind the cage, and I originally wanted the bird to be loose behind the birdcage so it could "fly" around, but it just wasn't happening. :(
To finish off the card, I added a Cupcake Seam Binding bow with gold Memory Thread and three Cookie Dough sequins with black Stickles in their centers.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the You Are Fab stamp set, and I used the flying bird from the Tree of Life Add-on: Spring stamp set to tie-in with the front of the card.
I like to have stamps and dies that will serve a purpose in multiple scenarios. The April New Release stamps and coordinating Sweet Cuts die sets fit the bill perfectly, and they are in the Paper Sweeties Shop right now!
