Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Paper Sweeties
has been invited to participate in the
Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is so much fun! 
Lots of inspiration and prizes to be had!!!

And here is my card using the Homemade with Love Paper Sweeties stamp and matching Sweet Cuts. I stamped the steam from the delicious hot coffee cup on vellum and heat embossed it. Doesn't that look cool?

The tag was made with the Paper Sweeties Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts. And the sentiment is from the Paper Sweeties Home Sweet Home stamp set. I think this would be the perfect card to give a new neighbor! Especially with some good coffee beans and yummy coffee cake to go with it!

Join in the fun with us here!
 You just may be a lucky winner!

The Card Concept #40

Hello my stampy friends!!! It is time for a new challenge here at

Here is our photo inspiration:

Is this not the cutest???

When I saw this photo, I was inspired by those cute little animals!
 So, I immediately thought of this adorable stamp by Art Impressions called Five Whoots!

I just love their big eyes!

I made this card by first stamping the image onto white card stock and then stamping it again on a post-it note to create a mask. I placed the mask on top of the stamped image and sponged around it with Tumbled Glass Distress ink to create a sky background. 

Next, I colored the owls with Copic Markers. I added some black Wink of Stella to their eyes to make them pop!
The branch that they are sitting on is a Memory Box die that I have in my stash. 
I carefully cut around the owls little claws with an Exacto knife, so that I could push the branch up underneath them. I wanted their little feet to look like they were holding on to the tree branch!The little leaves were fussy cut from a dp that I got from the Perfect Autumn(Carta Bella) 6X6 paper pad. 

The little owls look like they are enjoying a nice fall day!

And they're so cute!!!!!

We sure do hope you will join us HERE at the The Card Concept!

Remember , they're many different styles to choose to create.

Water Color Wings

 I am cutting it close! I just barely had time to join in the fun 
 with the fabulous Darnell Knauss NBUS challenge!

If you are not familiar (you must have been living under a rock) with this fun challenge...the rules are simple!
You must create with Never Before Used Stuff!

 I had never before used my Water Color Wings (Stampin' Up).
And I can't believe it, because I just loved how this turned out! This butterfly is so beautiful and EASY to stamp!

 I used this great sketch from
CAS(E) this sketch

So, I am joining them as well!

Hope you have a good day!

Paper Sweeties September Rewind

Welcome my stampy friends!
It is REWIND Day here at Paper Sweeties
We want to show you how easy it is to mix the newest Paper Sweeties Stamps and Sweet Cuts with older releases to make all kinds of cards and projects!

I found a card very similar to this one on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect to highlight this big juicy apple which is part of the September Release called Home Grown.

And this sentiment from an older Paper Sweeties stamp set called So Sweet Of You was just perfect for that gorgeous apple!

Please visit my Paper Sweeties Teamies 
and see what they have created!
