Paper Sweeties February 2018 Favorites Day 3!


Hello Sweeties! In case you haven't seen my previous posts, PAPER SWEETIES owner and creator DebbieMarcinkiewicz, and her husband have purchased a historic home here in North Carolina, which they hope to turn into a Bed & Breakfast Retreat! Debbie has had her hands full remodeling their new home! Therefore, we do not have a New Release here at PAPER SWEETIES this month. We are once again playing with some of our older favorites here at PAPER SWEETIES! It's hard to choose, because they are so many wonderful stamps and dies to choose from!!!


I began my card by creating a  heart shaped mask with the PAPER SWEETIE Lots of Love Sweet Cut. I sponged the little hearts with the mask I created with a stencil that I had in my stash.






The pretty pink bicycle is from the Hugs & Kisses stamp set.


The darling doggie and kitty are from PAPER SWEETIES Planner Series:Appointments  stamp set.
I just love this sweet card!

Paper Sweeties February Blast From the Past Day 2


Hello Sweeties! In case you didn't see my post from yesterday, PAPER SWEETIES owner and creator DebbieMarcinkiewicz, and her husband have purchased a historic home here in North Carolina, which they hope to turn into a Bed & Breakfast Retreat! Debbie has had her hands full remodeling their new home! Therefore, we do not have a New Release here at PAPER SWEETIES this month. We are once again playing with some of our older favorites here at PAPER SWEETIES! It's hard to choose, because they are so many wonderful stamps and dies to choose from!!!


Today's card features Pretty Posies!


 I stamped the images with Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. The images were colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors.


The sentiment is from the Hugs & Kisses stamp set.

I just love the way this turned out. The Pretty Posies are definitely one of my PAPER SWEETIE favorites!
