The tag was created using the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts die set and the *NEW* Hello Spring stamp and die sets!

Hello crafty friends!  Welcome to my blog today -- I'm popping in to share a little something I created for the newest challenge at The Card Concept!

papersweeties-debbie-cc#41(2)

In true shabby chic fashion, I began with a base of kraft and inked the edges with cream paint to create a time-worn look!  I added a layer of gingham patterned paper - machine stitched around the edges to secure it to the base.  I hand cut a pumpkin using white cardstock, embossed it with a damask folder and then inked over the embossing with cream paint.  I die cut leaves from kraft cardstock using the Bee Happy Sweet Cuts set.

papersweeties-debbie-cc#41(1)

To create the nosegay, I added a stem from my yard, a Prima paper flower, some white button twine and two crystal trinket pins.  Last, I stamped the heart and sentiment using the Little Wishes stamp set and then die cut using the coordinating Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die, tied it onto the nosegay and added some Marshmallow Sequins for some sparkle and shine!

I hope you'll have time to share a little something with us this week at The Card Concept -- I'm smitten with this week's gorgeous inspiration board!!

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the colors, theme, pumpkin and lace in this beautiful photo (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

papersweeties-debbie-10-1-15(2)

I cut a pumpkin shape from kraft cardstock, embossed it with a script folder and then inked the raised print with cream paint to create a time-worn look.  The leaves were die cut using the Bee Happy Sweet Cuts set, embossed with polka dots and inked with paint.

papersweeties-debbie-10-1-15(3)

I die cut the tag using the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts die set and then stamped the sentiment and pumpkin image using the Give Thanks stamp set.  I added a snipett of vintage lace trim, a bronze button and a pretty little Rusty Bell on top of the tag.  To finish things off, I added some yummy Frosting Sequins for a little pop of sparkle!

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo along with the trees, snowmen and winter theme in this month's FUN photo!  The snowmen were created back in 2014 by Kristen Swain - you can get the directions for the sock snowmen HERE!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):
