Welcome to the Paper Sweeties May 2018 Release Sneak Peeks! Today I'm sharing with you a card I made using the new sentiment set available tomorrow, Hey Y'all!
I was so excited when I remembered I still had this old stash of paper with lemons on it that I knew would go perfectly with this sentiment!
I was wishing I had some paper with iced tea on it when I came across my dies from the Coffee, Yes Please Sweet Cuts set! I cut two of them out of acetate and colored them with a brown Copic marker. The bottom side I colored a little darker and the top with just one layer. To avoid lines, I kind of smooshed the marker tip along on the "glass" which created what I think is an effect that almost looks like the tea is being swirled. I cut some lemon halves from another sheet of this fruity paper, some small squares out of vellum for ice cubes and a strip of the paper for my straw. When all of my pieces were cut, I added some liquid glass to the entire first cup over the marker and then placed all of my pieces where I wanted them and then placed the second cup marker side down onto the top of it all and pressed it together. Then I popped it up on the paper using some clear foam tape and I had a nice glass of iced tea!
Love the sweet southern sentiments on this set! All I needed to finish was some Bakers' Twine, a few pre-made paper flowers and some yellow sequins!
Thanks for stopping and hope you'll come back tomorrow for a Release Party! For now, be sure to check out what everyone has created for you today!
