Paper and Such RELEASE DAY and Blog Hop

This is my 2nd post of the day so if you are for the Sweet 'N Sassy Digi challenge post, scroll down or click 

Ready to see the new Paper and Such stamp sets?!?!  I've showed you a few sneak peeks along the way, but now you can see them all!  I am going to show you three out of the 4 new sets and then hop on over to my fellow design team members' blogs to see the rest!   

First up, let me introduce you to "Bucky!" from the Hot Shot Line. This set comes with one image and two sentiments.

And here's my card:

I paired this funny little chicken with some PTI dark chocolate and fine linen CS and DSP from the DCWV "Homemade Christmas" Mat Stack.  I thought the papers had a nice country feel to them which paired nicely with Bucky.  I colored Bucky with copics (lots of 'em), cut him out and popped him up with foam dimensionals over the baker's twine which substitutes for chicken wire!

  Here' s the inside of my card:

Here are the copics I used to color Bucky:

Next up, I'd like to show you the beautiful "Water Lily " stamp set. This stamp set also comes with one image and 2 sentiments.

Here' s my card:

This time I chose some PTI white, black, and hibiscus burst CS.  I stamped the image twice and cut out the center layers of the lily and then popped up the center with foam adhesive for added dimension to the flower.  I cut out the entire image again and then adhered it over the sentiment panel.  Here are the copics I used to color the image:

Finally, I'd like to introduce you to Hezzy, another funny little chicken set from the the Paper and Such Hot Shot line.  This set comes with one image, two sentiments, and little background stamp.

A chicken in heels with a purse makes me laugh every time!  Here's my card:

love to paper piece and I wanted Hezzy to have a Vera Bradley-like purse because what chicken doesn't deserve a Vera Bradley bag?  I chose patterned paper from the DCWV Animal Crackers mat stack and used the plaid as a background panel and on Hezzy's purse.  For CS I chose PTI white, kraft, and dark choclate and I stamped those chicken footprints in Momento rich cocoa ink over the kraft panel to make my own patterned paper.  I colored Hezzy with copics and added some glossy accents to her heels because this fancy chick deserve patent leather shoes to match her stylish purse! 

Here are the copics I used:
