Hello crafty friends!  It’s that time of the month again … time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!  Before we share the new inspiration board, let’s congratulate last month’s challenge winner … the votes are in and I’m thrilled to announce our latest winner of the October challenge:  Karen Letchworth!


Karen created the sweetest card for our October challenge inspired by the colors using the Abigail and So Proud of You stamp sets along with the Abigail Sweet Cuts die!  I love the way Karen dressed Abigail for a fall walk through the pumpkin patch!  Contact us, Karen, to claim your $25 gift certificate prize and get the challenge details for your Guest Designer spot with Paper Sweeties next month … and here’s a {sweet} badge to display on your blog – enjoy!

PS-Winner BadgePaper 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 … you don’t have to use products from Paper Sweeties, but we would LOVE if you did!  (If you don’t have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images created specifically for this challenge that you can try).  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 blog post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation.  No blog, no problem — you can use any of our online galleries to upload your project: FacebookInstagram, Flickr, Pinterest 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 Challenge – November 2016

HOW will YOU be inspired this month — colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the colors of green, orange, ivory and grey along with the wreath, shutter and fall theme in this gorgeous photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):


This was a FUN card to make and it came together in a snap … a rarity for me — NO stamping on this card whatsoever – WOW!  I used a variety of Sweet Cuts dies from the Paper Sweeties boutique along with some pretty sequins to whip up this cutie pie!
