Paper Sweeties June Release Rewind!

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

To finish off Paper Sweeties' Release Week, we have a Release Rewind where we combine new products with old. 
I decided to dress Jake and Emma up in some beach attire from the new Surf's Up and At the Beach stamp sets. I love that you can move Emma's pigtails just by snipping them and gluing them back on wherever you want them. I thought they should be low for this card. I colored both of the kiddos with Copics then paper pieced their swimsuits. The embossed sentiment is from the At the Beach set, too. I accidentally used a somewhat chunky embossing powder, so the font isn't as fine as it could be, but I didn't have another piece of that paper, so I went with the chunky look anyway.

This entire beachy release is one of my favs! Not only are the stamps super cute, but every single stamp and Sweet Cuts die in every one of the new sets works well together. And, it turns out, the new releases "play well with others," too. Check out my Teamies' blogs for more fabulous ideas for combining new and old sets:
