Paper Sweeties August Release Rewind!

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Time for a Paper Sweeties Rewind, where we mix new releases with older stamps and dies. Since all of Paper Sweeties stamps work well with each other, this is always fun. And, as I've done for all the cards for this release, this is a celebration card, in honor of Paper Sweeties' 3rd birthday.
For my card today I went Big and Bold, with bright yellow designer paper, and three different Washi tapes, then I paired the lollipop image from the Let's Party stamp set with the cute watering can from an earlier set called Showering You With Love. The images are colored with Copics and I used the out of the box technique to cut the rectangle around the watering can and leave the lollipops intact. You can't see it in the photo, but I heat embossed both lollipops with clear embossing powder to create a shine like a clear cellophane wrapper. The Wish Big sentiment is from the So Sweet of You sentiment stamp set. Three different sequin colors were the perfect finishing touch: Cookie Dough, Robin Egg, and Peppermint.
The sentiment on the inside of the card is made up from all the sentiments in the Wishing You stamp set except "Birthday." I left that off so this card could be used for any celebration.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the newest Paper Sweeties Stamps and Sweet Cuts Dies this week, and that you'll play along with us...especially since there are so many awesome prizes to give away!
