Paper Sweeties April 2017-Release Rewind!

Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Rewind!  Today we share with you a project with new stamps/dies combined with previous released stamps/dies.  But, before I get to my card, I want to wish you a very Happy Easter!  I hope you have a wonderful blessed day!

I couldn't let the day go by without having an Easter project to share.  Here is a candy treat bag that I made with an adorable bunny!

The bunny, eggs, and banner are from the set Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter and die cut with coordinating die Sweet Cuts-Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter.  They were gold embossed and colored with copics.

Next up are my cards using the awesome new Sweet Cuts-Square Scallop Frames dies that were released this month!  I just love these scallop frames.  I can see myself using them for many projects! I made several cards using the frames and showcasing several new sentiments from the newly released Love You to Pieces sentiments set. The previously released products for my cards that were used are the flowers from the set Thinking of You and die cut with Sweet Cuts-Thinking of You.  The stitched banner die cut is from Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  Sequins (Cookie Dough) were added for interest.  I added squiggly die cuts from the same sweet cuts-sweet borders set for the last two cards.  I couldn't make up my mind to add it to the first card, too.  I already took the photo and thought...well, maybe either way...what do you think?  And, here are my cards...

Please have fun hopping to see what my teammies created!  You will see some amazing creations!  Have fun!

Take care!
