Paper Sweeties Inspiration #17:

papersweeties-inspiration#17

We have this beautiful and spring-y photo to be inspired by this month - don't you just love it to pieces??

papersweeties-debbie#17(2)

I began with a mason jar base -- one of my passions!  I LOVE mason jars and collect them at antique shows!!  I decorated my jar with snipetts of pretty papers from Betty's Etsy shop and vintage lace trim!  I created a nosegay at the top of the jar lid using a glittered chipboard heart onto which I adhered three sweet Cotton Candy Sequins.  I then made a bow using Cotton Candy and Oatmeal seam binding and adhered it to the lid of the jar.  I added a couple of pretty paper blooms and then added a sentiment tag stamped using the Banner Wishes and Home Sweet Home stamp sets!

papersweeties-debbie#17(3)

Next, I created a sweet little nest inspired by the photo ... I used some hand picked Spanish moss and adhered three tiny blue robin eggs (berries from the craft store!).  I punched a little bird from some pretty pattern paper and gave her a polka dotted wing and pearl eye!  Last, my little birdie watching over her new little family needed a home, so I stamped the birdhouse from the Sending Springtime set directly onto patterned paper, cut it out, colored the roof with a silver glitter marker and then adhered a Grape Sequin for the little opening!

papersweeties-debbie#17(1)

I am smitten with this little springtime treasure and put it on a shelf in my kitchen so I can see it frequently throughout the day ... it makes me smile!

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

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #16:

papersweeties-inspiration#16

  I have a really fun card to share with you today -- full of bright and cheery colors and patterns ... sure to bring a smile to it's recipient's face!  I was inspired by all those yummy shades of pink and red, the banner, hearts, flowers and the patterns from the pennants!

papersweeties-debbie-2-1-14(2)

I began with a base of white cardstock onto which I layered melon mambo and then a pretty yellow gingham patterned paper - machine zig-zag stitching around all edges!  Next I layered a journal card full of pretty pink polka dots - yum!  On top of that I added some pretty sequins and then secured them inside my shaker frame.  I added a nosegay of beautiful paper flowers in shades of pink, hot pink and white and then added a couple snipetts of Green Apple Paper Straw as the 'leaves'!  A small piece of pink chevron stripe ribbon was added to the upper right corner for balance.

papersweeties-debbie-2-1-14(3)

Inspired by the banner in the photo, I created one of my own!  I die cut the shapes from various papers and cardstock using the Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts die, stamped the sentiment onto the heart shaped die cut using the Thanks Snow Much stamp set with melon mambo ink and then strung the shapes onto my card using a piece of Peppermint Baker's Twine!

papersweeties-debbie-2-1-14(1)

Bright, cheery and full of fun ... and, the best part is when you shake it, all those yummy sequins dance around so happy and pretty!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #15:

papersweeties-inspiration#15

I found my inspiration in the theme of this month’s board … the sweet little girl dressed to look like a fluffy little snowgirl … so adorable!

papersweeties-debbie-1-1-14(2)

I created a puffy 3-D snowman ornament using the Homespun Holidays and Thanks Snow Much stamp sets along with the Homespun Holidays and Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts dies!

papersweeties-debbie-1-1-14(3)

I stamped and die cut sweet snowflake and heart shapes - using some of the larger shapes to create a snow theme banner for the little snowman to hold and the smaller snowflake shapes to create ear muffs and a pom-pom for the snowman's hat!  Using the coordinating Sweet Cuts dies for these stamps makes it quick and easy to assemble this little cutie pie!

papersweeties-debbie-1-1-14(1)

To finish off this little guy, I added some teeny tiny silver jingle bells and silver ribbon strung through the top of his hat, bright red & white stripped ribbon, a pink satin flower and holly shaped leaves die cut from sage cardstock.  The use of fun polka dot and stripped pattern papers make this little fella whimsical and fun!  I hung him on a little table top snowman theme tree in my kitchen that I leave up during the winter months, but he would make a cute gift or package topper too!

We are very excited here at Paper Sweeties because we are debuting our shiny and brand new Design Team today!  I know you will find so much inspiration in these talented ladies' creations ... we are so blessed to have such an amazing team this year to spark your creativity!!  Please be sure to visit the other Sweeties Teamies’ blogs to be INSPIRED by their creative and beautiful projects … and then we hope you’ll have time this month to play along with the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #15 for a chance to win some goodies and guest design with us next month!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #14:

papersweeties-inspiration#14I found my inspiration in the theme of this month's board ... the sweet little girl wearing a pink cape and watching the snow fall outside her window ... so adorable!

papersweeties-debbie#14(2)So, I pulled out some of my favorite dies and cut a sparkly tree and window to re-create this precious winter scene!  I added a snipett of lace trim for the window valance and some delicious marshmallow sequins from my sweet friend, Paulina's, Pretty Pink Posh Etsy Shop!

papersweeties-debbie#14(3)I die cut a couple of snow drifts using the *brand new* Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts die set -- RELEASED TODAY in the shop -- and adhered them to the base of my card using dimensionals in between to add depth.

papersweeties-debbie#14(1)I stamped sweet little Emma onto cream cardstock and then die cut her using the Emma Sweet Cuts die.  Next, I stamped the cape from the Warm Winter Wishes set onto pink patterned paper, cut it out and dressed Emma in it!  Last, I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut banner using the Let It Snow stamp set and adhered it to the top of my card!

It’s a Party – Day 3!

Hello crafty friends!  I’m so happy that you stopped by again today for a little peek-a-boo at today's projects for day three of the Birthday Designer's Hop to celebrate Paper Sweeties 1st Birthday!  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet comments and e-mails telling me how much you like your Paper Sweeties stamps.  We LOVE our customers — new and old!!  These stamps are a dream come true for me and are a combination of a lot of time spent learning and a ton of perseverance and sheer willpower to make them come to fruition, but SO worth every single second!!  My heart flutters when I see the fantastic things you all create with your Paper Sweeties stamps!

To help us celebrate our BIG first birthday, we are planning fun little things all month long for you to enjoy and be inspired by!  We hope some of the ideas that you see here will spark your creativity and inspire you to create something fun out of stamps, paper and glue!

1stBirthday

So, without further ado, let me share what the first fun event is that we have planned for this month … I invited a bunch of my very talented crafty friends to join me for a DESIGNER’S BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!  Friday, Saturday and today, we've had TWENTY FIVE amazing designer’s who will be sharing sweet treats, cards, layouts, gifts, party favors, home decor and birthday-themed projects — created using a variety of stamps from the Paper Sweeties boutique!  FUN, right?!?

Well, we can’t have a birthday party celebration without gifts, right!  I‘ll be giving away the ENTIRE AUGUST RELEASE to one lucky person — there will be five sets released = $50 retail value!  So, here’s what you need to do to be eligible to win some yummy candy from this three-day hop:

#1 – FOLLOW the Paper Sweeties blog (Bloglovin’ link on sidebar)

#2 – LIKE and SHARE about us on our Facebook Fan Page

#3 – COMMENT on any August blog post - let us know you follow our Blog and Fan Page

#4 – POST our Paper Sweeties birthday graphic (above) on your blog and share about our party with your crafty friends

#5 – VISIT all of the designer’s blogs linked here each day and leave a little love for them too!  Come back here and leave us a comment telling us which of today’s projects was your favorite and why!  Do you have more than one favorite — leave each of your choices in a separate comment for ADDITIONAL chances to win!

The winner of the AUGUST RELEASE will be announced on August 18th (my birthday) and will be chosen from ALL comments left on this blog from August 1st through August 17th!

CKC

We’ll be attending the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte, NC August 15th – 17th … I hope to see many of our local crafty friends there!  Leave us a comment to let us know if you’re attending!  We’ll be releasing a ‘show exclusive’ stamp set AT THE SHOW and a couple more surprises!  I’ll share pics of this exciting and fun weekend here on the blog after I return!!!

Okay, lets get to peekin’ at my projects for today!  I created an entire birthday set for the three-day hop.  Today I’m sharing some sweet treats that you can make as party favors and take away gifts!

{click on the pictures to view larger images}

papersweeties-birthday(15)First up, we have a pretty little striped milkshake paper cup that I found at Home Goods.

papersweeties-birthday(16)I stamped a frame and sentiment using the Beautiful stamp set and adhered it to the front of the cup - tying a pretty aqua twill ribbon around the middle of the cup.

papersweeties-birthday(17)Next, I created some yummy treat bags - one is filled with pink and white peanut butter M&M's and I used the Little Wishes stamp set and Paradise Aqua Mist seam binding to create the tag.  The second one is filled with Raspberry tea cookies and I used the Occasions stamp set to create the banner tag.  The topper was made with the same hot pink and polka dotted cupcake liners I used on Friday's banner and Saturday's cupcakes with toppers!

papersweeties-birthday(18)To finish off the treats, I added a couple of Raspberry Lemonade drink mixes, some adorable hot pink and white striped paper straws and some hot pink paper crinkle!

papersweeties-birthday(20)The next favor idea I'm sharing is a sweet little gift box that I covered with hot pink polka dotted pattern paper and then adhered some aqua pom-pom trim around the top.  I created a soft baby pink tissue paper flower and added some sparkly aqua chipboard leaves.  The tag was created using the Banner Wishes and You're Invited stamp sets!

papersweeties-birthday(19)Inside, I added some aqua crinkle paper and a sweet little treat bag containing Raspberry tea cookies!  The tag was stamped using the Little Wishes stamp set and tied on with some Pink Bubblegum seam binding!

papersweeties-birthday(21)A sweet treat for sure, don't you think?!?

papersweeties-birthday(22)And my last little gift idea is a package of hot pink polka dotted napkins that match my party decor ... I wrapped them with aqua twill ribbon and adhered a white paper doilie, a delicious hot pink bloom with aqua glittery chipboard leaves!

papersweeties-birthday(23)I stamped the tag on this gift using the Home Tweet Home and Occasions stamp sets!

papersweeties-birthday(24)And here is my complete party set: banner, cupcakes with toppers, milkshake treat cup, tiny box party favor, polka dotted napkin take away gift and beverage glass charms!

Please be sure to visit my crafty friends’ blogs — oh my goodness, you won’t want to miss a single stop on the hop — so much eye candy, inspiration and ideas … these ladies are simply amazing!
