Wish BIG!

Hello sweeties!  I hope you're having a perfectly wonderful and relaxing day and getting some crafty time in too!!  We had a wonderful day yesterday for the 4th of July ... R&R, fun in the sun, splish-splashing in the water, BBQ with yummy corn-on-the-cob and watermelon and fireworks in the evening -- a perfect day!

papersweeties-july5(2)I am sharing a card today that I whipped up for a couple of sweet events going on today in blogland!  I was turned onto the {sweetest} Martha Stewart clay mold by my friend, Lori, last week and had to run to the craft store to get one to play with!  The cupcake was made using air clay ... just SO MUCH fun to play with!  I glittered the frosting to make it even more yummy and added a teeny cherry on the top!

papersweeties-july5(3)I used the You Make Me Smile and So Sweet of You stamp sets from Paper Sweeties {two of my favorites!} for all the stamped sentiments, added a beautiful twill striped bow from The Ribbon Reel and a snipett of lime green polka dot washi tape ... I think this card says 'Have a Happy Birthday' ... how about you?

Hi crafty friends!    I’m popping in today to share one last little something sweet that I recently created for this week’s #68 sketch challenge at Merry Monday!  I’ve been delighted to join Lesley and the MM girlies this month as their featured designer -- I'm sad that the month is just about done!!

 

papersweeties-merrymonday-june24(2)

I used some Cosmo Cricket chipboard pieces from my stash along with PTI, DCWV and October Afternoon holiday papers to create my card for today!  Doesn't that chipboard birdie make you smile??  I added a flower button on the chipboard snowflakd, twine and a rusty jingle bell to the chipboard package and a row of yummy fabric rosettes.

papersweeties-merrymonday-june24(3)

 

I used the Banner Wishes and Sending Holiday Cheer stamp sets to create the three banners and the O' Christmas Tree stamp set to stamp the sentiment on the top of the card - stamping directly onto the patterned paper.

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!
