Paper Sweeties Release Rewind

Welcome back by today, everyone!  Today is the day when we wrap up the August Release from Paper Sweeties, and I have two more super sweet cards to share with you using the FABULOUSLY FUN stamps and sweet cuts from the August Release.  My first card uses some patterned papers that I machine stitched together.  I also added a ruffled ribbon.
I stamped the sweet "You Make Me Smile" sentiment onto craft paper, and then stamped it with the small oval from from the new A Friend Is Stamp Set, and cut it out with the coordinating A Friend Is Sweet Cut.  I added a Sugar Sprinkles Sequin to the sentiment spot.  Next, I added a felt flower and created the "center" of my flower with a small piece cut from the A Friend Is Sweet Cut, and also cut the green felt leaves from this same Sweet Cut.  I topped the center of my flower with some Sugar Sprinkles Sequins that I layered together (three in each bunch).  I also tucked in a cute bow tied with Frosting Seam Binding.
Paper Sweeties' Sweet Cuts are absolutely FABULOUS!!  You can stamp the image onto paper and cut the image to match; or you can do like I did on this card and use the Sweet Cut alone to cut your accents from felt or other material.  These amazing steel dies will cut a perfect image every time!
My second card was created using some softer floral patterned papers that I machine stitched together.  I added a grungy prim tag and stamped the beautiful bicycle image onto it.  Above the bicycle, I stamped the sentiment "Enjoy The Simple Things"; and both of these stamps are from the new A Friend Is Stamp Set.  This card also uses a length of Bubblegum Seam Binding that I ran up my card to separate the two different patterned papers, and again in my bow on the larger tag.
At the top right of my card, you'll see that I used the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts to cut a smaller tag (I cut this tag from a grungy prim tag to match).  I then cut three flowers and some leaves out of wool felt by again using the flowers/leaf dies from the A Friend Is Sweet Cuts.  SO sweet and just the perfect accent for any card.  Paper Sweeties products are so versatile, and can be used in so many different ways.  Treat yourself today, and let your creativity run wild.
Here's the list of all the Paper Sweeties Designers who have prepared something special for you today.  I hope that you will stop by their blogs to check out more creative ways to use Paper Sweeties FABULOUS August Release products.  And....don't forget about the FREE Thank You Stamp Set and die (sweet cut) you can earn this month by making a purchase.  You won't want to miss this, or the fun challenge taking place on the Paper Sweeties Blog.
