SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #5

Hello Sugar Fans!!! Welcome to another
MIX-IT UP CHALLENGE


I was inspired by the fabulous sketch this time!




My clean and simple card today features the stamps



and the Sugar Cuts Stitched Flags




I found this fabulous patterned paper (Beach Day by Carta Bella) and knew it would be perfect to use with this stamp set! I stamped the pineapple 3 different times with 3 different Distress inks to get this color. My Misti tool was perfect for this technique! 


I then added Glossy Accents to the pineapple to add some fun texture!


 And of course sequins!!!


I hope you will play with us this month!
YOU could be the lucky winner!

Tasty Tropics


Hello my stampy friends!
I was SO inspired by the fabulous colors of the inspiration photo at Curtain Call, I just had to play along!!!



I just received this new stamp set called Beautiful Things (Verve). I know these aren't tropical flowers per se, but I thought they would look pretty in purples!


I colored the flowers with my Sparkle Spectrum Noir markers.
They are so sparkly in real life!
And the background was made with Zig markers and a water brush. I added some splatters and sequins to finish!

Paper Sweeties June 2016 Rewind

Hello everybody!
It is REWIND Day here at Paper Sweeties




It's time 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 wanted to make another summer celebration card!


First, I used a red and blue Zig Color Brush with waterbrush to make the background. Next I die cut several heart banners from the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts. I glued these to the watercolored panel row by row.


Next, I stamped the sentiment from this month's I Love Summer onto a tag from the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts.
That background has such an impact, I didn't need to add anything else but the sentiment! 

Well, I hope you have enjoyed seeing our creations featuring this month's Releases!

Paper Sweeties June 2016 Release Sneak Peeks

Welcome to the June 2016 
Release Sneak Peeks
  here at 
Paper Sweeties!!!




This stamp set is perfect for summer celebrations!!!
Such as the 4th of July!!!


I made my card with the heat embossed ink resist method. First, I stamped the fireworks onto to some water color paper with Versamark ink. I heat embossed the images with white and gold embossing powders.


Next, I watercolored around the embossed images with red and blue watercolors. As you can see, the fireworks resisted the colors! 



I stamped the flag and die cut it with the matching Sweet Cut.
See how much fun this stamp set is going to be!!!
Please come back tomorrow for this month's fun release here
