Paper Sweeties October Release Party

Happy Release Day!  Today is the BIG DAY!  All of the products the wonderful Paper Sweeties Designers have been showcasing on their blogs and social media are available at the Paper Sweeties Store!

Here are the stamp sets being released today:

And the Sweet Cuts being released:

Such a wonderful set of products! 

Today I have some lovely felt ornaments to share with you again using the Stitched Tags #2 dies!

 The stitched lines on the mitten and tree make it very easy to sew around the outside with some floss, thread, or even twine.  I sewed these darling ornaments together and added some batting in just a few minutes the other night while watching "The Voice"!   Then I went down to my craft room the next day and added trims to them along with some felt die cuts.

Here are the details for each of the ornaments:

This sweet red mitten was actually sewn together with some vintage string in a cream color.  Once it was stuffed with some batting I sewed the top closed following the stitched lines and created a hanger from the same string. I then added some cream pom pom trim as well as a felt scalloped border I had in my stash.  The tiny green and red holly and berries is a set of dies from the "Snow Friends Sweet Cuts".  All of the trims and embellishments were glued to the sewn mitten with hot glue.

Next the cream and red mitten:
This mitten was sewn together and stuffed with batting in the same way as I stated above.  This time with 3 strands of red floss .  I then hot glued the lace and a felt scalloped border and a red gingham bow.  The red felt snowflake was die cut from the "Snow Friends Sweet Cuts"  and added with hot glue.

And finally the tree ornament:
For this sweet tree I followed the same process with the sewing.  I cut the heart out of the green felt tree but do not recommend this as it made it very difficult to stuff with the batting.  I think you should instead add the die cut heart after as I did with the snowflake on the cream colored mitten ornament above.  I then hot glued two red bows back-to-back at the top of the tree and sewed on a sweet tiny red jingle bell!  I created a loop for an ornament hook with some red gingham ribbon.  This was the first ornament I created and it was how I discovered that you could use and follow the stitching line holes the dies create to do your sewing.  Unfortunately I didn't figure it out until I was almost done sewing this one! LOL!

I also have a card to share with you today using the new "Stand Add-on Manger" stamp set as well as a star from the new "Do You See What I See" stamp set:
 I created a small 4" scalloped circle card which is fairly simple and sweet.   I added some glossy accents to the star and baby Jesus's halo.  I also added a "Cookie Dough" twine bow to his sweet bed. 

Well that is it for me today but there is a TON more inspiration from the rest of the Paper Sweeties Creative Designers:

Don't forget to come visit all of us again tomorrow for the Release Rewind where we combine the new stamps and sweet cuts with some of the existing products in the Paper Sweeties catalog!
