For today’s project, I created this super sweet and pretty in pink party set using the *new* Hello Friendstamp set, the Party Time Sweet Cuts die set, Banner Wishes, You're Invited, Cotton Candy Baker's Twine & a couple of Raspberry and Robin Egg Sequins!

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!

papersweeties-debbie-8-15-14(5)

These would be so much fun for a children's party ... or a big girl's tea party!

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:

papersweeties-debbie-psi#20(2)

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'.

papersweeties-debbie-psi#20(3)

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!

Paper Sweeties May Release Rewind!

Hello friends!  Well, all good things must come to an end -- today I'm popping in to share one more inspiration project created for the  May *new* product release at Paper Sweeties!  Today is Release Rewind day, so the teamies and I are sharing projects created using previously released products in combination with brand new goodies today ... enjoy!

papersweeties-debbie-5-16-14(2)

I stamped the banner from the Wagon Add-on: bloom & grow stamp set and then cut it out using the *new* Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die!  The tiny banners were colored using glitter markers and adhered to the patterned paper base.  I stamped the 'Friend' sentiment using the Wagon Add-on: bloom & grow set and then stamped a pretty little flourish under it using the Life is a Special Occasion stamp set.

papersweeties-debbie-5-16-14(3)

I stamped the adorable wagon from the Sweeties Wagon set twice - once on white cardstock and again on striped patterned paper -- and then cut them both out using the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die set.  I adhered two tiny candy dots to the wheels and then added a couple of sweet pink blooms stamped using the Wagon Add-on: bloom & grow stamp set and the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die.  I added two Robin Egg Sequins to the middles of the flowers for a pretty, iridescent pop of color!  The banner was created by stamping a sentiment from the Sweeties Wagon stamp set ... and then I finished things off by adding a couple of rolling hills of pretty green polka dotted grass which I die cut using the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts die set!

papersweeties-debbie-5-14-14(2)

I created this bright and cheery card -- perfect to brighten up someone's day that is feeling under the weather!  I stamped Jake onto vanilla cardstock and then colored his hair and skin using Prismacolor pencils and chalks.  I cut Jake out using the Jake Sweet Cuts die - easy peesy!

papersweeties-debbie-5-14-14(3)

Next, I stamped Jake's cute doctor outfit using the new Sorry You're Sick stamp set and coloring the pants and tie with Prismacolor pencils; the shoes and buttons with glitter markers!  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Sorry Your Sick onto white cardstock and then used the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die to cut out a tag and then clipped off the top to create the shape of a 'clipboard' -- I then adhered it to the card with a tiny glittered library clip!  Plenty of fun, mixy-matchy patterned papers were added along with a strip of green and white polka dotted Washi Tape and hot pink polka dotted ribbon ... and then several tiny hearts were cut from glitter paper using the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die and added to the bottom of the card - FUN!

Hello crafty friends!   Today we are kicking off the May *new* product release festivities with some inspiration from the design teamies using all of the yummy goodies that will be available in the boutique on the 15th.  Until we get to the main event, let's share some sneak peeks of what goodness is to come ...

papersweeties-debbie-5-15-14(2)

I created this fun card for a sweet friend who had hip surgery last week - I hope it brightens her spirits during her recovery!  I stamped Abigail onto vanilla cardstock and then cut her out using the Abigail Sweet Cuts die!  I dressed her in an adorable nurse outfit from the *new* Feel Better Soon stamp set.  I used a mixture of Prismacolor pencils and glitter markers to color Abigail and her outfit!  The sentiment tag was stamped using the *new* Sorry You're Sick stamp set and then I added a couple of iridescent, flower-shaped Bubblegum Sequins for a little pop of FUN!

papersweeties-debbie-5-15-14(3)

I adhered Abigail and the sentiment banner onto a pink striped envelope along with a pretty strip of homespun hearts.

papersweeties-debbie-5-15-14(1)

And for a fun little surprise, I created a pull-out tag using the Feel Better Soon stamp set, a few more Bubblegum Sequins and a length of Robin Egg Seam Binding!  I hope this card brings a smile to my sweet friend's face!

Hello sweeties!  What have you thought so far about the February *new* products release festivities?  A lot of yummy eye candy shared by the design team ladies ... have you had a chance to participate in the daily designer's blog hops each day?  I have a bright and cheery card to share today for our Release Wrap Up ... full of polka dots, yummy images and fun embellishments!

papersweeties-debbie-2-16-14(2)

I stamped the sentiment using the Cupcakes & Sprinkles stamp set.  The yummy cupcake was stamped using the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp set and then quickly and easily die cut using the coordinating Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts die!  I added three Bubblegum Sequins under the stamped sentiment for a little POP!  The banner was created by punching the pennants from patterned paper and the strung using a snipett of Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.  Lastly, I added some delicious glitter to the sprinkles part of the cupcake  ...  YUM!

Paper Sweeties February Release Party!

Hello my friends!  Well the BIG day is finally here ... today is the official RELEASE PARTY for the February *new* product release here at Paper Sweeties - yay!  We have two new stamp sets and one new Sweet Cuts die to offer this month ... let's check them out:

SC-56

Sweet Cuts - Tea For Two  which coordinates with the previously released Tea For Two stamp set!

PS-feb2014(bundle)

February 2014 Release Bundle!

And here are a couple things I created using some of the new goodies!

papersweeties-debbie-2-15-14(1)

I used the new Home Sweet Home stamp set to create this {sweet} treat gift box - and filled it inside with a couple of yummy cookies with sprinkles on top!  I stamped the house image and sentiment and adhered them onto a tag and then tied the tag onto the nosegay using Robin Egg Baker's Twine!

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

I added a couple Raspberry Sequins to the base of the house image to create pretty, iridescent 'shrub's!

papersweeties-debbie-2-15-14(3)

A couple Paper Straws in Robin Egg and Raspberry were added to a vintage-looking soda pop bottle to complete the ensemble!

papersweeties-debbie-2-15-14(4)

And, I whipped this card up really quickly to take to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour show going on this weekend to showcase the new Tea For Two Sweet Cuts die that coordinates with the Tea For Two stamp set!  This card was inspired by Sweetie Teamie, Lisa Elton's lovely project here!  What an easy peesy birthday card that took less than 5 minutes to create ... this would make cute party invitations too!  Love the steamy Peppermint Sequins coming out of the tea pot spout!

Paper Sweeties January Release Rewind!

JanRelease

Hello crafty friends!  My how time flies when you're having fun ... today is the final day of design team project shares here on the blog for the January release ... what did you think of the bakery theme this month?

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(10)

I love receiving feedback and requests from our lovely fans and customers ... and a bakery theme release was overdue!  Many of you had voiced your opinion about adding some bakery items to the Paper Sweeties line up ... I'm so glad you did ... I LOVE this month's new stamps and dies!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(8)

For today's project, I created a winter theme birthday card for my sister-in-law who celebrates her birthday in January!  I stamped the birthday sentiment onto a die cut snowflake using the Sweetie Pie stamp set and added a row of yummy candy pink dots!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(9)

I stamped snowflakes from the Thanks Snow Much stamp set onto Slate cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Iridescent Ice powder ... the gorgeous sparkly effect does not show up well in the photos, but in person they are beautiful!  I added some pretty little white sequins to the middle of each snow flake for a little pop of fun!  Next I stamped the adorable little branch from this set, die cut it using the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts die, colored it with a glitter marker and adhered it to the base of my card.  Snow drifts were die cut from white glitter chipboard using the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts die and double mounted to the base of the card to create dimension.

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(7)

I thought a cute little snow person was in order for this January birthday greeting, so I stamped Ms. Frosty from the Snow Friends stamp set, cut her out and added her to the snow drift on my card!  I paper pieced a sweet little hat for my snow lady using the Jelly Bean Time set, patterned paper and colored the brim and flowers with Prismacolor Pencils.

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(6)

My little snow lady is delivering a yummy cake to the birthday girl, so I stamped the cupcake and strawberry images from the Cupcakes & Sprinkles set, colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and glitter markers, cut them out and adhered to the top of my snow lady.  A yellow taffeta ribbon scarf was tied around the little snow lady's neck to complete this {sweet} winter birthday card!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(4)

It just wouldn't be a party without cupcakes, right?!?  So I whipped up a batch of almond cupcakes and iced them with buttercream frosting.  I created cupcake toppers using adorable hot pink stripped paper straws onto which I layered a die cut white glitter chipboard snowflake, a chipboard star, acordian folded crepe paper, tinsel, a piece of flair and sentiments tags stamped using the Banner Wishes, Sending Sweet Thoughts and Stand Add-on 6 stamp sets!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(5)

And then created some name place tags to coordinate with my birthday party set using the Sending Sweet Thoughts and Fancy Monograms stamp sets along with the Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts die!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(3)

My brother and sister-in-law are planning a visit here next month, so I will save these party pretties and plan an 'in-person' party when they are here!  All these polka dots, cupcakes and bright, cheery colors are making me smile!

papersweeties-debbie-1-16-14(2)

But until the in-person visit, the little snow lady birthday card is going in the mail to bring my sister-in-law some warm winter birthday wishes!

I am completely smitten with this month's bakery theme release!  These stamps and dies will soon become one of your favorite 'go-to' tools to help you create adorable cards, gifts, tags, layouts and more ... year round!  For today's design team project share, I created a layout using a portion of a holiday card sent to me by a sweet friend ... her daughter is adorable and I just knew as soon as I saw this photo that I needed to make a layout with it!

I created a 'Sweet Shop' stand using the Sweeties Stand, Sending Sweet Thoughts, Stand Add-on 6 and Happy Fall Ya'll stamp sets along with the Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts die!  I paper pieced the stand awning with polka dot paper and then pieced the bottom of the stand with woodgrain paper - added a snipett of lace trim as a sweet tablecloth for the stand!  The bakery items offered for sale look yummy - cupcakes with pink frosting and cherries on top, a pie and birthday cake - oh my!!

I created a {sweet} sentiment banner using the Cupcakes & Sprinkles and Stand Add-on 6 stamp sets and then layered several Doodlebug stickers in a row of stripes for a pop of color!

Sweetness x 10 – TSTR #172

Hello crafty friends!  So happy you stopped by for a visit today!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying this gorgeous summer so far -- summer is my favorite time of the year ... LOVE!!

Photo Inspiration #172I am sharing a little something {sweet} I recently created for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #172 - 'Summer Breeze'!  Starr is our creative host and she is asking us to create a card or project using the colors in the photo and add a fabric element - easy peesy 🙂

Debbie TSTR #172 (3)I created a yummy dessert using the Tall Ice Cream Cone Shaped Card from The Cutting Cafe!  I added a red polka dotted button on the top for the 'cherry' and added sparkle puff paint along the edges of the fabric covered scoops to look like sugary sprinkles!

Debbie TSTR #172 (4)Layers of fabric trim were adhered to the underneath of each scoop to create another layer of dimension!  I scored the pink cone to give it a realistic look and then added some pretty red twill tape ribbon tied into a sweet bow!

Debbie TSTR #172 (2)For the finishing touch, I stamped a sentiment using the You Are Amazing set from Paper Sweeties and then tied it onto the twill ribbon with button twine and added a shiny red jingle bell!

Debbie TSTR #172 (1)The perfect little summer treat for someone sweet!

Please be sure to visit the Tea Room to be inspired by the rest of the Shabby Girls delicious creations this week ... and then we hope you'll have time to play along with our 'Summer Breeze' challenge for your chance to win some goodness from The Cutting Cafe!

Challenges I was inspired by:  Moxie Fab World - Mixy-Matchy style challenge; Ribbon Carousel #82 - Fun in the Sun;  Really Reasonable Ribbons #74 - dots & ribbon; Fussy & Fancy #91 - buttons; Catered Crop - shapes/dies/punches
