Paper Sweeties July 18 Day Two


Hello Sweeties!
As I mentioned yesterday...
Paper Sweeties is taking a little summer break this month,
so there will not be a new release.
Instead we are sharing some projects featuring Paper Sweetie newest stamps and Sweet Cuts with some older Paper Sweetie stamp sets.

Here is my card:


Miss Madison is having a summer day walking in the park!
I stamped all of the images with black Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers.
The sky was sponged with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and then sprinkled with some water drops!

Below are the Paper Sweetie stamps that I used for my card:

Madison:


Hey Y'all

Paper Sweeties July 2018

Hello Sweeties!
Hope you are having a fantastic summer!
Paper Sweeties is taking a little summer break this month,
so there will not be a new release.
Instead we are sharing some projects featuring Paper Sweetie newest stamps and Sweet Cuts with some older Paper Sweetie stamp sets.


Here is my card for today:


I just love the way this card turned out! I love the aqua colored bike!
I would love to have a bike like this one!
All of the images were stamped onto Neenah white card stock with Memento black ink. I colored all of the images with Copic markers. I highlighted some of the images with a white pen. And I added Glossy Accents and Stickles to add some sparkle and dimension.

Below are the Paper Sweetie stamps that I used for this project:

The Card Concept Challenge #96-Golden Table




This will be our last challenge for the summer,
and it is a beauty!!!!


I love pink and gold together! So elegant and pretty!

Here is my card:


I got to play with my new June 2018 Small Die of the Month Kit Club from Spellbinders!  I love Spellbinder dies because they beautifully emboss their die cuts!  The gold candles and pretty white flowers are from this set.



I started by making a pretty pink background  by smooshing 
Picked Raspberry, Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress inks on some Bristol card stock.
I also added some splatters with the same colors.
When the panel was dry, I die cut it with the Wonky Borders (Avery Elle) die.


hope I have inspired you to join us here at
