Paper and Such - New Release!

Good Morning Paper and Such Fans and Friends!!  How are you?  I'm great and thrilled that today is a new release day at Paper and Such!!  We are mixing it up a bit and have one new set to show you and we are re-releasing an older set just in time to start making those fabulous masculine cards for Father's Day!

I hope you have come here via my friend Kim's blog!  If not, make sure you start at the beginning of this fun hop so that you don't miss one fabulous creation!! 

My creation today uses the new and so pretty Strawberry set!
Here is the set in it's entirety:
 I started by inking the main strawberry plant image onto Xpress blending cardstock and coloring it in with these Copics:  (and you'll notice a couple of very OLD Pantone markers in the mix)
I then cut it out using my Spellbinders circles.  I matted it with bright yellow cardstock and stitched a portion of the edge.  If you've been reading my blog you know that I am very consciously trying to adopt the "use what I have" mentality.  (go ahead...laugh...I do every time I write those words!)  But I try and try and try.   So the papers used in this creation came out of my scrap bin and if memory serves they are from Bazzill, SU! and MME.  I did a bunch of fun stitching, added brads to the top corners and added a distressed, manila tag to the background.  

I used some delicious May Arts chevron ribbon to finish the front off and you'll notice an actual Bingo sheet layered in there as well!

My interior uses more of my scraps and a sweet sentiment and single stamp from the above set. 
Paper and Such's Deer Dad set is being re-released today and would be absolutely perfect for any woodsy man in your life!!  I love it because the sentiment words are all separate allowing you to customize your creation for your needs! 
That's all for me today!!  Off you scoot to see what wonderful creation Mindy has in store for you today!!

Crafty Hugs!
