Paper Sweeties September Release Countdown

Welcome to DAY TWO of our countdown to Paper Sweeties September 15th Release!
This month's stamps and dies are absolutely fabulous for the upcoming Autumn Harvest season and all year round!

The new sets being released are:

Today I have a few things to share with you....

This first card uses the "Homegrown" stamps and sweet cuts dies along with a sentiment from the "Happy Fall Ya'll" set:

A sweet little card wishing a "Happy Fall"!  Wouldn't this be a darling card to welcome a child's new teacher for the year?  I paper pieced the fruit on various "Crate" papers and added some light Copic coloring to them too. A little Diamond Stickles adds a touch of sparkle to the leaves and frame. 

While in the "Back to School" card-making mood I also decided to try my hand at a project I spied on Pinterest....I thought it would be cute on our kitchen table for the first few weeks of school or even to give to the teacher for their desk:

To create this sweet apple you need a series of red card stock rosettes in various sizes from 1" to 1 3/4".  You stack them and use hot glue to form an apple!   I added some felt leaves, a flower, and a Paper Sweeties tag with a sentiment created from two different stamp sets.

I pulled the word "happy" from the "You're a Superstar" stamp set and the words "school days" from the "So Proud of You" stamp set.  The apple stem is from a garden twig that I broke a piece off of and hot-glued in place.  Such a sweet little project!  I think I will be making a pumpkin next.  Halloween is just around the corner! 

I have one last card to show you today.  This one uses the cherry image from the "Homegrown" stamps and sweet cuts and the sentiment is from the "Sending Sweet Thoughts" stamp set. 
I added two paper-pieced leaves to the cherries from the Pear stamp in "Homegrown" and a tiny paper flower for a finishing touch!

Now it is time to send you off to the other design team members who all have such wonderful projects to share too:

I hope you will come back tomorrow to join us for Release Day!  You will finally be able to get your hands on these wonderful new products!
