Paper Sweeties May Inspiration #19 – ‘Cupcakes & Sprinkles’:

papersweeties-inspiration#19

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

papersweeties-debbie-psi#19(2)

I began with a base of cardstock, washi tape and patterned paper onto which I layered a selection of pretties!  I adhered a pink glittered chipboard heart and then on top of that layered a sweet cupcake stamped using the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamps set and die cut using the Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts set!  I stamped the sentiment using the So Sweet of You stamp set!

papersweeties-debbie-psi#19(3)

I added some pretty pink trim, a row of fun red buttons, an aqua flourish ... then added a couple of yummy Robin Egg Sequins and a stamped row of teeny tiny cupcakes using the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp set.

I used the *NEW* Stand Add-on: Manger stamp set along with the Sweeties Stand, Stand Add-on: Scarecrow and Stand Add-on: Scarecrow Sweet Cuts to create this sweet, holiday-theme card!

papersweeties-debbie-10-14-15(2)

The pretty nosegay was created by making a pretty bow using Sugar Sprinkles Seam Binding.  I die cut a tag using the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die set and then stamped the word Noel onto the tag using the Stand Add-on: Manger set.  To complete this embellishment, I added a couple of Rusty Bells which I thought went along well with the rustic feel to the kraft cardstock manger!

Hello Friend – Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!

papersweeties-debbie-6-5-15(3)

CLICK on photos to view larger images close up!

I started with a base of Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and then layered on Sweet Berry and Bubble Gum cardstock finishing with a layer of Aqua Screen patterned paper.  I inked all the paper edges with cream paint to create a time-worn look, and then machine zig-zag stiched along the edges.  I die cut a tea pot shape from Floral Bunches patterned paper using the Tea For Two Sweet Cuts die.  I stamped a sweet heart tag on Buttercream cardstock using Cool Pool ink and then die cut the heart using the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die.  Next I stamped the 'Hello Friend' sentiment with Sweet Berry ink using the Little Wishes stamp set and attached the 'tea bag tag' to the tea pot with a snipett of aqua twine.

papersweeties-debbie-6-5-15(4)

I added a rouched paper ruffle using text paper and then adhered a length of vintage crochet trim in a coordinating Oatmeal color.  I created a pretty nosegay of paper flowers, pearl trinket pins, pretty glitter leaves die cut using the Party Time Sweet Cuts die set and a beautiful tea-stained Frosting Seam Binding bow.

papersweeties-debbie-6-5-15(1)

To finish my card, I added several lovely, flower-shaped, iridescent Sugar Sprinkles Sequins for a POP of bling!  (Cardstock and ink from Fun Stampers Journey, patterned papers from Recollections by Michael's).

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

papersweeties-debbie-9-1-15(4)

I had so much FUN creating this sweet little pocket gift!  I covered a cardstock CD cover with pretty patterned papers and then had fun filling the pocket with lots of goodies!  After inserting some little baubles into the tiny paper bag and wrapping a pretty white paper doilie over the top, I sealed it with a cute little chalkboard wooden heart on a clothespin and then added a tiny washi tape ruler and a handmade report card!

papersweeties-debbie-9-1-15(3)

I dressed Miss Abigail up for her first day back to school - complete with her little stack of books and an apple for her teacher!  Her sweater was stamped on patterned paper, skirt on cardstock and then the outfit was paper pieced to little Abigail.  She was adhered to a library card and then added to the pocket!  I created a fun tag that was added to the bundle of pencils using baker's twine, added chipboard A, B, C's and a couple of Strawberry Sequins for pops of sparkle!

papersweeties-debbie-9-1-15(2)

I love everything about this fun little project and since I don't have any of my own kids going 'back to school' presently, I gave it to my bestie's daughter who is beginning her senior year in college ... I hope she likes it!!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(12)

I baked some vanilla bean cupcakes, topped them with pink sprinkles and then added an adorable little decoration I made by die cutting a balloon shape using the Party Time Sweet Cuts set and adhering it to a toothpick!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(11)

I created a coordinating party invitation using the You're Invited stamp set along with a couple of Robin Egg Sequins!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(10)

Next I created a couple of party favor bags!  The tags were created by die cutting balloons using the Party Time Sweet Cuts set and then created sentiment banners using the Banner Wishes and Hello Friend stamp sets!  I added a couple of yummy Raspberry Sequins for a pop of sparkle!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(9)

The tags were tied onto a rock candy stick using some Cotton Candy Baker's Twine and then the tag and candy were tied onto the treat bags using some pretty tulle!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(8)

I made some pink lemonade and poured it into a vintage glass bottle and then added a couple of sweet Raspberry Paper Straws!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(7)

I don't know about you, but I'd LOVE to be invited to this fun and pretty in PINK party!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(6)

The pink and white polka dotted pattern paper and favor bags just make me smile ... and I love the pink striped washi tape to pieces!

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

papersweeties-inspiration#20

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!
