Paper Sweeties July Release Sneak Peeks

WELCOME to the July Release for Paper Sweeties!  Today we begin sharing projects using the new stamps and sweet cuts that will be released on July 15th at 8am!

This month's release includes the following sets:

And here is my card:
This card uses the new "Wish" stamp set and sweet cuts dies!  The background paper is from Authentique's "Latest and Greatest" 6x6 paper pad.  I die cut the word "Wish" 3 times from blue card stock and then glued them together for some added dimension.

  I punched out 4 little stars using a "star" hole punch, glued them together and dotted the "i" with the completed star.  I think it adds so much to the card!  The rest of the sentiment "upon a star" is from the "Wish" stamp set..  The rounded corner stitched mat was embossed with a star embossing folder and then inked with some Tahiti colored chalk ink to bring out the dimension.

A few "Robin Egg" colored sequins add some sparkle.  And a "Robin Egg" twine tie with a bow finishes the card.

There is a lot more inspiration for you to view today!  Here are the links to the other designers participating in today's blog hop:

I hope you enjoy taking a look at all of the wonderful projects that the design team is sharing today!
