Paper Sweeties September 2019 Rewind



Welcome to REWIND DAY at PAPER SWEETIES!

We will show you how easy it is to use the NEW release 
with some of the older PAPER SWEETIES stamps and Sweet Cuts. 

Here is my card:


I  colored all of the images with Copic Markers, then
I die cut them with their matching Sweet Cuts.


I added lots of Stickles and Glossy Accents to add lots of sparkle and texture!

I think Miss Madison makes an adorable farm girl!!!


Here are the new September Paper Sweetie stamps that I used on my card:







And here are the older stamp sets that I used on this card:











As you can see, it is so easy and so much fun to mix and match the older PAPER SWEETIES stamps and Sweet Cuts together! And of course, who doesn't love playing with paper dolls!!!!

Please hop along and see what the other 
 Design Team members have created!

The Card Concept Challenge # 119 -Beautiful Butterflies

The Card Concept Challenge is back from Summer Break!!!! 
We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and we hope you are ready to create with us again!
We LOVE seeing all of your beautiful creations!

Look at this gorgeous Inspiration Board!


I love, love, love these beautiful colors!!!!!
And butterflies!!!! WOW!!!

Here is my card:



I am a huge fan of Debby Hughes-Lime Doodle Designs. She has a unique and beautiful technique of no-line watercoloring. I gave it a try. Of course it is no where near her quality, but I think my card turned out quite pretty.
 I definitely enjoyed creating it!


I stamped the butterfly images onto watercolor paper with  Antique Linen Distress Ink. I painted the images with  Gansai Tambi water colors. I splattered the butterflies with the paint colors, but I also mixed some Perfect Pearls to some water, and splattered that as well. Debby always does this to her watercolor images to add sparkle! Well...I wanted even more sparkle, so I added some sequins, too!




I hope I have inspired you to join us here at 


The style of my card would be considered Clean & Simple:
One main image
Lots of open space
Limited layers and embellishements

Pink & Main + Paper Sweeties Birthday Celebration!


The fabulous Pink & Main Store is helping us 
CELEBRATE
our birthday today at Paper Sweeties
with a Birthday BLOG HOP!
Woo Hoo!!!!
We are so excited!!!

Pink & Main shared some of their great products with us!

Here is my card:


My card features Paper Sweetie's new August Release stamp-Cupcakes & Sprinkles!

The Celebrate sentiment die cut is from Pink & Main. I just love the font of this die! 
I think it works perfectly with this Paper Sweeties cupcake.


I stamped the stars from the Paper Sweeties stamp set-Be Happy with Versamark ink, onto some Bristol paper. Next, I heat set the stars with white embossing powder.
After heat setting the stars, I sponged some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink across them.
 I sponged the rest of the card with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink. I love these two colors together!!!!


I stamped the cupcake from Paper Sweeties newest August Release-Cupcakes & Sprinkles and colored it with Copic Markers. Next, I used the matching Sweet Cuts. I added some details with Nuvo Crystal Drops and Nuvo clear glitter pen to the cupcake
The pretty yellow embellishments are from Pink & Main!
