Hope you will come join in on the festivities!!!

So I am continuing to play around with my Sweeties stamps!!!

I did a bit of masking and a bit of coloring with a whole bunch of Copic Markers. I added some white accents with a gel pen and sponged some grass with Color Box inks in fresh green and moss green. I added some pettern paper from My Mind's Eye, cord and button from Michaels.

Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #34 - Happy Birthday

Hello there!!!

I am so excited for today....it's Paper Sweeties 3rd birthday!!!!!


A one stop shopping expirience for the cutest stamp images and sentiments, coordinating dies, twine, ribbon, sequins and so much more!!!!

Let's kick off the Sweeties celebration with their
monthly challenge


I created three cards in honor of the 3rd anniversary! 
For this card I used Sophie and her adorable outfit is from Sweetie Pie.  The cake and present are from Celebrate!!!! I used the Sweet Cuts die, Wish. The sentiment is from Hello Friend.
You can find the black twine in the Sweeties Shop!
I used Copic Markers to color and embellished her outfit with a white gel pen. I used a mix of pattern papers fromMy Mind's Eye and Little Yellow Bicycle.
I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.


For this next card I used the cupcake from Celebrate to emboss the background. The large cupcake is from Sending Sweet Thoughts.  I used the cake from the same set and masked the cupcake to add candles.          I used the coordinating Sweet Cuts dies to make a shaker! The sentiments are from Beautiful and Splish Splash.
I was inspired by Donna Mikasa's card...
I inked up the backgrounds with Color Box ink in shabby pink and cyan. I embossed the background with a cupcake and gold powder. I colored the bows with a white gel pen. I filled up the cupcake shaker with an assortment of Paper Sweeties sequins!
I am adding this card to Seize the Birthday...I am adding the toppings!



This last card I totally adore!!!  I used the Bee Happy Bundle...stamps and dies
I created the balloons using the circle die from Sweet Cuts Fun Shapes. The clouds are from Sweet Cuts Let's Go to the Beach. The sentiment is a mix of stamps from Hello Friend and Wagon Ad-ons.
I used Copics to color the ladybug and Color Box inks in shabby pink, canary, orange and orchid. I inked up the background with sky blue ink and a Spellbinders die. I love this happy little bug!
I used the photo inspiration from Addicted to Stamps Challenge

I hope you are ready for an insane blog hop with lots of inspiration and prizes!!!!
