Paper Sweeties May 2016 Release Rewind and an announcement:

Welcome back to our May 2016 Release Rewind for Paper Sweeties!  Today is the day where we try to mix it up!  We mix some of the new products with some of the existing products that Paper Sweeties has to offer.

In case you missed it here is a list of the new sets that were released yesterday:

My card today uses the new "Best Dad" stamp set as well as the "Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts".  I then added in the "You are the most Wonderful" stamp set for the focal point sentiment.  The banner is from the "Sweet Cuts Beautiful Wishes" die set.   

I created my background using some of the smaller stamps in the "Best Dad" stamp set.  The grey stitched banner behind the focal point is from the new "Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts" and I love the stitching detail around the border!

I hope you enjoy our Release Rewind Blog is a link list:

I also want to share that I am going to be taking a little break from designing for Paper Sweeties. This is my last post for Paper Sweeties for the next few months at least.  I want to thank Debbie and the entire "Sweeties Teamies" who are such a wonderful group of women to design with!  And each one of you that reads my posts here and leaves such sweet comments! You all inspire me and make me smile with the beauty you create!
I will still be posting to Facebook and Instagram occasionally....hope to stay in touch!

Paper Sweeties May 2016 Release Party!

Happy Release Day!  Today is the day that all of the new Paper Sweeties products are for sale in the store!  Yay!   Here's "What's New":

Today I have a Birthday Card to share that uses the wonderful new "Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts":

 My three gingham tags are hanging from one of the sweet borders die-cuts that cuts a thin curled strip of paper.  I love this die cut!  And I also used the scalloped border sweet cut to add the scallops to the bottom of my card.

This card also features the "Birthday Banners" stamp set.  I stamped the cupcake banner and then hand-cut two of the cherry-topped cupcakes out to add to each of the green gingham tags.  This tiny cupcake with the cherry on top is one of my favortie Paper Sweeties images!  I hope Debbie makes a large cupcake just like it someday...because can you EVER have ENOUGH CUPCAKES?!   The "Sweetie Pie" stamp set supplies the wonderful sentiment.  I added some green Copic marker to some of the letters to tie the green color into the focal point.  A few of the wonderful Paper Sweeties "Bubble Gum" sequins finishes this card perfectly.

Now I get to send you off to the next blog in our wonderful Release Day Blog Hop:

Paper Sweeties May 2016 Release Sneak Peeks

Hello and Welcome to SNEAK PEEKS for the May 2016 PAPER SWEETIES RELEASE!  I am so happy that you are joining us on today's blog hop!

This month Debbie is releasing:

Today I am sharing a sneak of the wonderful new "Best Dad" stamp set.  I opted to take several of the sentiments in the set along with the bowtie stamp to create a colored background.  I then used an oval die to cut the background down and used it to frame my handsome "Dad" from the Paper Sweeties Doll line.  

I love how this turned out and cannot wait to give this card to my Dad on Father's Day.  
I hope you will visit all of the Paper Sweeties Teamies today to see everyone's sneak peeks:

We would love to see what you are creating!  
:) Jill
