Paper and Such Release Day!!

Greetings Paper and Such Fans!  Today is a fabulous day because it's new release day!!  WOO HOO!  Julie has two amazingly fun new sets being released today.

But first, you should be arriving from the fabulous Kendra's blog where I know she has something amazing to show you.

However, if you did not start at the beginning please head on over to the Paper and Such blog so you don't miss any of the fun along the way! 

Today I've created a card using the sweet new Patriot and Friends stamp set.
I know, right?  Soooooooooo cute!!  I've used the sweet 'I'm about to pounce kitty' in the lower left hand corner of the preview image above:
All papers are from Authentique. (I'm totally loving this pack!)  I couldn't help but paper piece this sweetie!!!  I know he has cupcakes all over him which is why I then stamped his head on vanilla cardstock and popped it up so that it looked more 'realistic'.  I did some shading with his sweet face, ears and body.
I have to tell you, I LOVE the font used in this set and there are five amazingly versatile sentiments that come with the set to tailor your creation for any pet lover in your life.

I created a sweet butterfly embellishment to go along with this darling little kitty.
I used some floral wire to wrap around the multi-layered butterfly to give an added element of dimension.  I used some basic white yarn, a tiny Tim Holtz paper clip and a few pearls as my added embellishments.

Thanks for being here with me today!  Have fun on the rest of the hop!!  Off you scoot now to my wonderful fellow Paper and Such teammate Stephanie's blog to see what gorgeousness she's prepared for you today!!

Crafty Hugs!
