Paper Sweeties June Release Sneak Peeks!


Hello, SWEETIES!  It's time for another Paper Sweeties release, and this month is TOTALLY fun and summery!  I just KNOW you will love all the new sets and dies.  There are FOUR new stamp set and TWO die sets this month--WOW!  My first card features some no lines water coloring, take a peek...


I used the *NEW* Let's Go To The Beach stamp set to create this scene.  I first stamped all the images with light colored, water based inks onto some watercolor paper.  I then did a little no lines water coloring magic.  There's a video below on how I did this. :)



I added some Wink of Stella to the clouds--it's kind of hard to see in the photo, but it's so pretty in real life!  I also added some red glitter gel pen to color in the sand castle flag.


The bow was created with Cookie Dough seam binding, and a red gem was added to the center to tie in the other red accents on this card.


I just LOVE the way this turned out!  The sample in the video didn't turn out as well, but I hope you take a chance and watch the video, anyway. ;)


So, what do you think?!  I hope you like the finished product, and that you take time to try out this fun technique!  I'd also love to hear your thoughts on my card and the *NEW* Let's Go To The Beach stamp set in the comments below!  AND, there are COORDINATING Let's Go To The Beach Sweet Cuts dies, too!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate all your sweet comments--they make my day!  If you're ready for more inspiration, make sure to stop by all the other gals' blogs, too!

Here's your list~


I'll be back tomorrow with more release goodness!
Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
