For today's sneak peek projects, I'm sharing a couple of cards I created using some of the new goodies which will be live in the boutique TOMORROW  —  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

I used the *NEW* Thanks stamp set to create this pretty card along with our *NEW* Thankful Sweet Cuts set to die cut the yummy burlap leaves!  We also will have a coordinating *NEW* Thanks Sweet Cuts set that will easily and quickly cut out the words 'thanks' and 'hugs' as well!  I added a rouched patterned paper ruffle, a pretty paper flower, a stick pin and a couple of Sugar Sprinkles Sequins for a little pop of sparkle!

My second card was created using our *NEW* Thankful stamp set, coordinating Thankful Sweet Cuts die set and some pretty Cookie Dough Seam Binding for the bow!  Aren't those die cut green and white gingham leaves the sweetest??!!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(9)

The wait is over -- it's a NEW year and we have a darling NEW card kit for you to enjoy this month!  The four projects included in our January kit have a fun winter-inspired theme with plenty of chubby little snowmen, warm mitten, snowflakes and cute Miss Abigail all bundled up for a chilly winter day!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(2)

The first card is clean and simple with a crisp white and cool blue color palette.  Splashes of blush and kraft add a little warmth to this chilly=theme card!  All those snowflakes make me smile ... I love them in craft projects but not IRL!  We used Thanks Snow Much, Snowflakes Sequins and Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins to complete this cutie patootie!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(1)

The next project is a wintery tag - perfect to attach to a thank you gift or sweet treat!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(4)

I love the woodgrain embossing on the tag base ... and Mr. Frosty is one of my favorite stamps!  We used Snow Friends, Snow Friends Sweet Cuts, Thanks Snow Much, Blueberry Seam Binding, Snowflakes Sequins and Marshmallow Sequins to whip up this fun tag!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(3)

The next project is a pretty card with a yummy gingham mitten complete with a felt cuff and satin flower - love the amazing texture and mix of patterns & colors!

This card was also created for the new challenge at The Card Concept -- I was inspired by the MITTENS and WARM WINTER theme!

Abigail couldn't be any cuter dressed in her winter coat, hat, mittens, leggins and boots -- love the pink fur trim on her clothes ... she is so adorable pulling her little wagon filled with snowballs!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #37:

papersweeties-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.
