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 something from Paper Sweeties such as a stamp, die or embellishment!  If you don't have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images for you to try out!  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 project post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation. You do not need to have a blog to enter — you can use any online gallery to upload your project:  Flickr, Pinterest, Facebook 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!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #37:

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

papersweeties-debbie-11-1-15(2)

I dressed sweet little Sophie in her pilgrim outfit using the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set and then added three Marshmallow Sequins for 'buttons' on her apron!  All outfit images and the sweet little pumpkin were stamped onto patterned paper, fussy cut and paper pieced onto Sophie which was die cut using the Sophie Sweet Cuts die!

papersweeties-debbie-11-1-15(3)

I used a variety of sentiments to stamp inside the flowers (step card die from Sizzix) from the Give Thanks and Autumn Blessings stamp sets!  I used a glitter marker to make the squiggly lines around the edges of the flowers, leaves and base of the card.

Boo – TKJ #143!

TKJ #143We have a color inspiration challenge for this week at The Kraft Journal!  I LOVE color inspiration challenges, how about you??

Debbie TKJ #143 (2)

I began with a base of Brown Kraft Cardstock which I layered onto a pumpkin shaped card template from The Cutting Cafe and hand cut.  Next I cut the decorative layers for the top of the pumpkins using various patterned papers and Vintage Dictionary Pages.  After adhering the decorative layers, I cut burlap stems for the pumpkins using Burlap Tags.

Debbie TKJ #143 (1)

To create the leaf nosegay, I added glittered leaves I hand cut, Tiny Wooden Green Clothespins and Bright Green Hemp Cording.  Last, I added a glittered pumpkin sticker and gave him a sweet sentiment stamped onto a Grungy Prim Tag using the Too Cute To Spook stamp set from Paper Sweeties and then secured on a Memo Pin.

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal to be inspired by the rest of the teamies' projects this week, and then I hope you'll give our color inspiration challenge a try for a chance to win an awesome prize package from The Kraft Outlet Shop!

Boo – TKJ #139!

Debbie TKJ #139 (1)We have a color challenge this week at The Kraft Journal #139!  I love color challenges!!  I began by cutting a pumpkin shaped base.  Next I added a couple layers to create texture and volume - a white paper doilie, a patterned paper ruffle created using a piece of Kraft & Black Cardstock, a gorgeous piece of Damask Washi Tape and Burlap to create the pumpkin stem.

Debbie TKJ #139 (2)

I then added two Pewter Stick Pins and a Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tag onto which I stamped a sentiment from the Too Cute To Spook stamp set.  Last I wrapped a length of Brights Hemp Cording around the pumpkin stem and adhered a pretty bloom.

Be sure to hop on over to The Kraft Journal to grab this week's color graphic and play along for a chance to win some awesome goodness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!

Inspired by these challenges:  Really Reasonable Ribbons #80 - shabby chic & ribbons; Top Tip Tuesday #110 - shaped card; Moxie Fab World - stickers & tape challenge (damask washi tape); Moxie Fab World - general craft supplies challenge (burlap, paper doilie & metal office tag); Moxie Fab World - ready-made embellishments challenge (Prima flower, Jenni Bowlin trinket pins)
