PaperWorks Co. April Release Blog Hop

Welcome to PWCO April Release Blog Hop! There are some super cute stamps being released this month from the new Cutie Patootie Collection, so make sure you hop along to see them all! Here are the cards that I made for the release.


I used Garden Bear for my first card. Isn't he cute? I do love his big head! =)


I colored him on watercolor paper with Twinkling H2Os before cutting the image out using a Labels One die. The piece is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Big Scalloped Circles Large die.


The patterned paper is from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink


For my second card I used Ice Cream Bear. I figured if a bear can have an ice cream cone, then he is allowed to have the ice cream in rainbow colors! =) I adore this delightful image.


He is also colored with Twinkling H2Os on watercolor paper. The image is then cut using a Standard Circles Large die then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Big Scalloped Circles Large die before I stitched the layers together.


The sentiment tag is cut using the Sweet Tags with Hearts die from Whiff of Joy Stamps and the sentiment is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes. The patterned paper is also from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park.

That's all I have for now. It's time to send you to Nicole's blog. Or here is the blog hop list:
We are giving away 6 stamps (one of each style) for random commenters, so don't forget to leave comments along the way!

Have fun hopping and good luck! =)
