Paper Sweeties August Release Countdown!

Hello there!

Today is Release Countdown for Paper Sweeties!  Tomorrow is the day that you will be able to purchase *new* stamps/dies!  Such fun sentiments and a super lovely banner available this month!  I know that the banner as seen above will be one of my favs to be used very often!:-)  So, today I am featuring the Hello Friend stamp set!  You will want to purchase this set for it has so many sentiments (8) .  For example, it has Happy Birthday as seen above, Thank You, Hello Friend, Hip Hip Hooray, Grateful for You, Love You Much, Thank You, Hugs & Kisses, and Celebrate Your Day!

I started with a white scalloped card base from Bazzill.  I punched all those tiny flowers and added gems.  Sophie was cut with coordinating die, colored, and paper pieced.  Her outfit and sentiment is from the stamp set Mahalo.  More fun Doodlebug paper was used along with a strip of washi tape.  Button and Paper Sweeties twine...Grape and Creamsicle to finish off the card.

Would you like to see more inspiration?  Yes, of course you do!  Please follow along with the list below...
