Paper and Such New Release!

Greetings Paper and Such Friends!  Thanks for being here with us today on this great blog hop as we release two fabulous new sets!  May I introduce you to "Get Well Chick" and "Daisy".  They are both sweet, versatile and very easy to color and/or paper piece!

But before I show you the sets...you should have arrived here from my friend Kendra's blog.  If you did not, you will definitely want to start hopping HERE

My first creation features the new Daisy set:
 
I used the larger bunch of Daises as you can see above and one of five available sentiments.
 I stamped my image on watercolor paper, heat embossed and then painted with Distress Inks and Pearlized Water.  (a tutorial will come...I promise!)

I then coated only some of the petals with Glossy Accents for added dimension and texture. 
I went a bit shabby chic with my scrappy elements of corrugated cardboard coated with ink and heat embossed, ruffled and a bit tattered rolled flowers, monopoly money (hiding under the flowers), some die cut leafy flourishes, lots of stitching and some seam binding.   

My second creation simply makes me giggle.  The image is entirely too sweet but could go to the land of "snarky-ville" should you choose to head there!  (wink!)

Here's the full set called "Get Well Chick".
Here's my creation which I kept very CAS (for me at least! ;)
I inked the image with Momento ink and colored everything with my Copics.  I then cut the image out with a tag shaped die, coated it with Versamark Ink, clear embossing powder and heat set the entire thing making it look psuedo-laminated.  I LOVE the texture this treatment adds!
I then added some zig zag stitching with red thread and added some black and white gingham ribbon.  Very "farmy" I thought.  A few resin flowers (if you're a regular here at Paper Canteen you know I have a growing obsession with these!), some more stitching and a fabulous sentiment and I was happy! 

I hope you've enjoyed my creations using these fantastic new sets that are available now at the Paper and Such Store along with SO much more!  Dies, twine, paper, OH MY!  Head on over and shop shop shop!!

Now off you hop to the lovely Stephanie's blog to see what lovely creations she's got in store for you!!

Crafty Hugs!

Wow! Two fantastic cards. I love how you put some monopoly money onto your card. I have some old money in my stash that I put there for a rainy day...you have inspired me to pull it out.
