Paper Sweeties June Release Rewind

Hello and Welcome to the "Release Rewind" for Paper Sweeties June 2015 release!

Were you able to shop yesterday for some of the wonderful new stamps and sweet cuts?  So many fun items to love!!!  This has been one of my favorite releases! There are just so many things you can do with these stamps and sweet cuts dies! Summer crafting here I come!

Release Rewind day is when the Design Team creates projects using the new stamp sets combined with any of the existing products in the Paper Sweeties store.

I have used several previous releases on my cards today:

Sweeties Stand Stamp Set
Upper Case Alpha Stamp Set
Jake Stamp Set / Jake Sweet Cuts
Sweetie Pie Stamp Set

I also used these new releases:
At the Beach Stamp Set
Surf's Up Stamp Set
Let's Go To The Beach Stamp Set

My first card is all about the ice cream bar stamp in the new "At the Beach" stamp set:

I decided to make an Ice Cream Stand and feature the ice cream bar!  I plan to give this sweet "ice cream" themed card to my son on his last day of school which believe it or not is today - June 16th!   Tim's favorite dessert is ice cream of almost any kind.  He loves to get "Fro-Yo" at a little place in our neighborhood and we have been getting it once a week in the unusually HOT Seattle weather we have been having!  It is a nice Friday afternoon treat after a long week of school!  I think he will love this card! And I plan to take him for ice cream today to celebrate his very last day of 4th grade!

My second card uses the beautiful hot air balloon in the "Let's Go To The Beach" stamp set. It is a scalloped circle card:
This is a 1 layer card but the masking of the balloons gives it some visual dimension I think.  I stamped the balloon that I colored in blue and yellow tones first.  Then I covered it with a mask and stamped the second balloon which I colored in pink and yellow tones.  I then used the balloon mask again to add in my clouds around the balloons.  The balloons are colored with Copic markers and I sponged some aqua ink around the balloons to fill in the background. The sentiment is from the "Sweetie Pie" stamp set.  A sprinkling of pretty yellow "cookie dough" sequins as well as a "cookie dough" twine bow finishes off this sweet card.  

There is more incredible Release Rewind Inspiration to be seen on the rest of the Design Team Members posts.  Here is today's link list:

And a reminder about our monthly inspiration challenge.  Here is this month's graphic:
We hope you will participate!  The winner will receive a $20.00 gift certificate for the Paper Sweeties store and a chance to guest design at a future Inspiration Challenge. 

Did you know that Paper Sweeties has new card kits?  The first kit has a wonderful Tea Party theme! Perhaps you love to create but don't want to purchase stamp sets and matching dies along with a die cutting machine due to the expense?! Or perhaps you are headed on vacation and want to have a little crafty project to take with? If so kits are your answer!!! Debbie puts together everything you need to create the projects shown!  All you need are some adhesives, scissors and some crafty time!  The kits cost $30.00 but you receive a $5.00 discount if you become a subscriber! You can find the kit by clicking HERE!
