Paper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog! Each 1st of the month we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity!  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using ANY of your favorite crafty supplies — receive an EXTRA VOTE if you use a stamp, die or embellishment from Paper Sweeties!  If you don’t have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images created specifically for this challenge that you can try before you buy!  Use this month’s board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — ANYTHING GOES!

2. POST a DIRECT LINK to your project in our link gallery below — please link to your blog post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation.  No blog, no problem — you can use any of our online galleries to upload your project: FacebookFlickr, Pinterest or Splitcoast Stampers – keyword papersweeties!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your readers can easily find us!

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

I am sneak peekin’ a little something *NEW* coming May 15th for this month’s release … we will have a darling border and stitched tag stamp and die set added to our lineup — I’m smitten with those sweet scallops!


Besides the *NEW* Sweet Borders die set I used on this card, additionally I also used these goodies:
