Paper and Such May Release Hop

It's release time at Paper and Such and there are two fabulous sets to showcase for you today!  
I'm enjoying the opportunity to be a Guest Designer with the talented Paper and Such team!
I made this card using a fantastic set called Deer Dad - what a regal, proud image which is very easy to color.  
I masked the deer image and then using post-it-notes, added some mountains.  I added the clouds using a Papertrey Ink cloud die-cut.
All the dp's have been sponged with Distress ink for a natural, out-door look and I added hemp twine and some leaf die-cuts to complete that theme.  The set has several sentiments for various occasions but I used the one for Father's Day so I'm all set for June!
Supplies include:
K & Co. dp
Echo Park dp
My Minds Eye dp
Stamping Up Baja Breeze, Creamy Caramel, Soft Suede ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles
Joy Craft leaf dies
Hemp twine

This card was made using a new set called Strawberry - it includes this strawberry plant along with three smaller images and three sentiments.  What a pretty, summery image, I loved working with it!
 I had all kinds of plans with different dp's and eventually went with a more CAS bg.
I added some green cardstock behind the doily for more definition, and then added some flourish die-cuts and gingham ribbon - gingham makes me think of summer picnics!
Supplies include:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles
Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party doily
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die
October Afternoon button
White twine
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Stampin Up Real Red, Lucky Limeade cardstock
Paper Mill Shop White Linen cardstock 

Here's a full list of all the designers participating today so that you can check out every creation with the new sets, don't miss out on any of  the fabulous inspiration from the design team!  By leaving comments along the way, you could be the randomly chosen winner of both stamp sets - you have until Friday night!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
