Paper Sweeties June Release Sneak Peeks!

Hi there!

Today is the day for Paper Sweeties Sneak Peeks!  And, you will love the four *new* summer stamp sets that Debbie has designed for this month!  Today I am highlighting three new stamp sets, which are At the Beach(Sophie's outfit, beach ball, shovel, pail, shells and sentiments), Let's to to the Beach(clouds and sand castle), and Island Time(sun).  The stamp sets will be available on June 15th!

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with a red panel.  I water colored the water/sky.  The sand was made with sand paper torn along the edge.  The beach ball, Sophie, and pail and shovel were colored with copics.  Metal dots were placed for interest.  And, Strawberry bakers twine for the finishing touch.

You will want to see awesome projects from my fellow teammates!  Hop along with the list below...have fun!

Maria Patrick--that's me
