Happy Summer - Paper Sweeties July *new* stamp preview - Day 2!!

  Hello crafty friends!  I'm popping in today to share a project I created for the Paper Sweeties July *new* Stamp Release!  I'm smitten with this month's new stamps -- SO CUTE -- here's a little peek-a-boo at my card:

This card was created using the *new* Happy Summer and Home Tweet Home sets along with Some Bunny Loves You, You Are Fabulous, Mahalo! and Rainbows & Roses stamp sets!  I created a fun little scene by stamping clouds directly onto blue patterned paper and then cutting them out and adhering with dimensionals.  The sun was made by punching a yellow circle from cardstock, stamping sun rays with the post from the birdhouse and then adding glitter for some sparkle and shine!

I stamped two of the trees and colored them in with Prismacolor pencils and then hung some clothes on the line -- also colored with the color pencils and glittered so they would 'pop'!!  I added a stamped rustic fence in the background - the 'weathering' was created by swiping a bit of paint on a sponge down the fence posts!

Please visit the Paper Sweeties blog to peek at the lovely inspiration projects created by the rest of the design team girls today!!   I hope you'll visit again tomorrow for our BIG Release Party Fun and Festivities!!  I have lots of inspiration & goodness to share, including a couple of contests and giveaways too!  See you then!
