Paper Sweeties July 16, 2019-Release Rewind!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Rewind!  Today is the day that we highlight the newly released stamp sets along with previously released stamp sets for our projects.  The new stamp sets this month are Ahoy Matey and Beach Therapy  And, coordinating die set Sweet Cuts-Beach Therapy.  Today, I am sharing two cards highlighting both sets along with a few previously released sets.  Jake is having a great day in his pirate outfit and Madison is in her mermaid outfit!  The two of them have a treasured friendship!

For my card, I started with a brown card base and paired it with black.  The sky was made using distress ink broken china.  The ship and waves(embossed in white) are from the new set Beach Therapy.  The pirate outfit and sentiment are from the new set Ahoy Matey.  Madison's mermaid outfit and starfish are from the set that was released last month Mermaid Wishes.  The sun is from the set Island Time.  The die cut waves were made using the set Sweet Cuts-Let's go to the Beach.  Nuvo Drops(gold) were applied to the starfish, sword, and treasure chest.  Nuvo Drops(morning dew) was applied to the waves, sun, and mermaid outfit.  Black twine to finish the card.

A view of the inside of the card...

How fun is that pirate starfish, so cute?!!

Next up, is my card with an underwater scene...

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with blue and lime green paper.  The background for the water was made using the "smoosh" technique on glossy paper with distress oxide inks of salty ocean, broken china, cracked pistachio, and twisted citron.  The jelly fish are from the new set Beach Therapy.  The colors used for the jellyfish and mermaid tail are wilted violet, picked raspberry, and seedless perserves.  The sand  and starfish were made using vintage photo distress oxide ink.  Nuvo Drops(gold) were applied to the treasure chest and centers of the starfish.  The mermaid tail and starfish are from Mermaid Wishes, which was released last month.
