Paper Sweeties September 2016 Release Party!

Hello my stampy friends!
And they are FABULOUS!!!! 

I began my card by stamping pumpkins and sunflowers from the new THANKFUL stamp set onto Bristol smooth paper with black Archival ink. I watercolored the images with Distress inks. I set them aside to dry, while I stamped several leaves with green ink and fussy cut them out. There is a matching Sweet Cut for the leaves, but I think it is easier to just fussy cut when you have several little images like these leaves. When the pumpkins and sunflowers were dry, I used their matching Sweet Cuts and cut them out!

I softly sponged the background with Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress inks. Next, I stamped the background with the wreath from the older Paper Sweeties  Hello Spring stamp set a couple of times in a SU Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment is from the new THANKS Sweet Cuts. I die cut the sentiment 4 times and glued them together to give them some depth.
And finally, I put all the images together! I hope you like the final outcome!
