Paper Sweeties Baby Blog Hop!

WCMD-2013

Happy World Card Making Day - 2013!

babybloghopHello sweeties!  Welcome to a very special event today here at Paper Sweeties!  All of us on the Design Team are here to help our very own sweetie, Jinny Newlin, celebrate the exciting news that she is expecting her third little bundle of joy!  We couldn't be any happier for Jinny and wish her and her sweet little family all the joy and blessings our hearts can hold!

papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(7)In honor of this joyous occasion, the Sweeties Teamies decided to get together and host a Baby Blog Hop!  We all have created a little something 'sweet' to share with everyone today on our blogs.  I created a little card called 'Sweet Baby' in a soft corn flower yellow and mint green palette since Jinny doesn't know yet whether she is having a boy or girl.papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(8)I used the Fancy Monograms, Little Wishes and Make Today Beautiful stamp sets along with Primrose Cookie Dough and Mint Green Tea seam binding from the Paper Sweeties boutique on my card.

papersweeties-debbie-10-2-13(6)And it wouldn't quite be a party without presents, right?  So, how about we give out a few!  We have several different ways for you to be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Paper Sweeties and we will choose THREE lucky winners!  Winners will be announced on October 31st!

Thankful 4 U … TKJ #124!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm here to share a card I recently created for this week's 'Clean and Simple' challenge #124 at The Kraft Journal!

Debbie TKJ #124 (2)

I  began with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock onto which I layered red and aqua card stock.  I added a pretty little strip of Red & White Polka Dot Washi Tape which I snipped at the end to create a point.  Next, I added a Chipboard Button on which some yummy Red Baker's Twine was tied.

Debbie TKJ #124 (1)

The label and sentiment were created using the Beautiful stamp set from Paper Sweeties which I stamped on a piece of Buff Ivory Card Stock.  Last, I added a chipboard "4" and "U" to complete my design!

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal to check out the beautiful projects created by the design teamies this week, and then we hope you'll have time to play along for your chance to win some awesome goodness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!!

L-O-V-E … TSTR #165!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm popping in today to share a little something I whipped up for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #165 - 'Totally Textured'!

Photo Inspiration #165We're to be inspired by the photo and use DRY EMBOSSING and STITCHING to create texture on our projects this week -- FUN!  Two of my favorite things to do when paper crafting!

Debbie TSTR #165 (2)I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on white vellum to create the base for my card.  It was adhered using machine zig-zag stitching around the edges.  Next I die cut a window shape and then stamped L-O-V-E using the Fancy Monograms set and adhered the letters to the inside of the window panes.  Next I added some pretty pearl flourishes to the corners of my card.

Debbie TSTR #165 (1)And last, I created a pretty little nosegay by adding a couple of paper flowers, a white glittered chipboard heart and two leaves I stamped using the Make Today Beautiful stamp set!

Paper Sweeties badgePaper Sweeties is the sponsor in the Tea Room this week and will provide this week's winner with a $20 gift certificate to the shoppe!  Please be sure to make a visit to The Shabby Tea Room to check out the beautiful inspiration from the rest of the Shabby Girls!

Hugs!

Challenges I took inspiration from:  Simon Says Stamp – happy mail, Fussy and Fancy #88 – anything, Catered Crop – embossing
