Paper Sweeties May Release Party

Happy Release Day!  Today is the day that all of the new goodies we have been showcasing for the past few days are available in the Paper Sweeties store!  The New Releases are as follows:

My card today features the "Life is a picnic" stamp set.  I dressed the lovely Emma in a sweet new short outfit from this stamp set using some Tilda papers to paper piece.  I added some pink bow embellishments to her blouse and a bit of petite pom-pom trim too.  I also added some bows to her hair. 

The lovely picnic basket she is carrying was colored with Copic marker and then paper pieced with some Tilda paper for the lining.  Then I filled the basket with the baguette, grapes and watermelon included in the stamp set.  I stamped, hand cut, and colored them with Copic markers also.  To insert them in the basket I used my craft knife to create a slit in the lining and slid the food items inside.  A little bit of glossy accents adds the finishing touch! 

I finished the card by adding an embossed fence die cut from the "Home Tweet Home" set and some clouds too.  The ground is a piece of green doily and a scrap of brown patterned paper from my stash. 

Thanks for visiting me today.  There is lots of inspiration still to see using the newly released sets.  Here is a list of links to help you along your way....
