Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge - May 2016

Hey there Crafters!!!

How are things going?
It's May 1st and Paper Sweeties has a new inspiration photo for you to play with!!!


I used the sets Eat Cake and Hello Spring to create the background. I stamped the images with black ink from Memento and colored them with Copic Markers. I added some white accents with a gel pen.

I die cut the tea cup and tea bag using Sweet Cuts Eat Cake dies. I stamped the sentiment onto Sweet Cuts Stitched Tags 1.  I also added some sequins and a doily to finish it off.


I am also playing along with Simon Says Stamp


Hope you play along with us!
The designers have created some wonderful projects for you!!!

April 15: Paper Sweeties April 2016 Release Party!

Hello there!
Welcome back to the Paper Sweeties April Release!!!

Happy Spring is the newest stamp set...and it' s coordinating die Happy Spring Sweet Cuts.
Oh, how I love these blooms and sweet wreath!!!!
I cheated a little on this card!
I used a very subtle pink and beige shade to watercolor but instead of watercoloring each flower and leaf cluster, I watercolored a large panel of paper, allowed to dry, than stamped the flowers and leaves. Than I die cut the shapes.
I added some Wink of Stella and Liquid Pearls. I stamped the wreath on to vellum cardstock than die cut and adhered the flowers and leaves. The sequins can be found in the Sweeties Shop!
I added a pretty pink twine bow, also found in the Sweeties Shop! 
Other supplies used: scalloped stitched dies from MFT

I am adding this to CASology



Hope you'll stop by the designers blogs for a peek!

Hello there!
Welcome back to the Paper Sweeties April Release!

Debbie has created a sweet spring stamp set and coordinating die set...
I love the swirly, whimsical wreath, tiny blooms and big bow!!! The sentiment is just too sweet!

I stamped the wreath with Appletini ink from WPlus9. The rest of the images were stamped using black ink from Memento. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I added some white accents with a gel pen. I stamped the sentiment with Lake House ink from WPlus9 than used the Sweet Cuts die to trim. 
I scattered some enamel dots for a last touch.
