Paper Sweeties June Inspiration #20 – ‘Princess Party’:


We have this yummy photo and gorgeous color palette to be inspired by this month … and here is what I created:


I stamped half of the princess carriage from the Life is a Special Occasion stamp set onto a base of patterned paper.  Next I stamped a ‘table top’ to hold the cake using the birdhouse pole from the Home Tweet Home stamp set.  The tired cake was stamped using Summer Slush ink and the Best Wishes stamp set, and then I added some pearls, paper flowers and a snipett of vintage lace trim to decorate the cake and ‘table top’.


I stamped the sentiment using the Best Wishes set and added the banner onto the back of the princess carriage – it looks like it’s blowing in the wind!  I added soft sky colored candy dots to the centers of the carriage wheels and then added some sequins in Robin Egg, Frosting and Peppermint — scattered around the card for a pop of bling!  The banner was created using the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die set and I added several pearls to the banner to continue with the girlie theme on this fun card!  This card was SUCH A BLAST to build and create … and so easy peesy using Paper Sweeties stamps and dies!


Please be sure to continue to hop along and be inspired by the rest of the Sweeties teamies’ projects today:

    Brilliant use of stamps! Love how you only used the half the carriage, and then used the bird house pole for the top. It fits the photo perfectly!!
