Paper Sweeties April Pre-Release Day 1

Hi Friends!

I'm so very excited to share with you today the sneak
peak pre-release day 1 for Paper Sweeties!  Just look
at that sweet little Emma!  She is definitely ready for
an April spring shower in her adorable hat, rain coat,
and boots!  The stamp set, (Spring is Here!) includes
her clothing, puddle, boots and sentiment used on the
above card.  It will be available on the 15th of April!

I started my card with a light blue card base and
embossed it to give it the effect of rain drops.  April
showers do bring May flowers!  I used a Spellbinders
die for layering and interest.  She was colored with
copics and her little outfit was paper pieced.  I just
love those little red boots...too CUTE!  Ribbon,
gems, and flower to finish off the card.  I had so
much fun playing with the April line of stamp sets!
Do check back tomorrow for pre-release day 2.
And, please check out the design team's creations
for you will be guaranteed inspiration...

So,  these SWEET line of stamps will be available
on April 15th!  I'm so excited to see what you create
with them!  Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Take care, hugs!
