Pop of PINK … TSTR #247

TSTR #247

Hi crafty friends!  I had a bit of time on Sunday to create 'just because', so I decided to hop in and make a little something pretty in pink to share for today's new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #247 - 'Pop of Pink'!  It's been a while since I had some time to join the Shabby Girls, so making this card brought me back to my lil 'ol shabby happy place!

The sponsor in the Tea Room for the next two week is Dies R Us, so I decided to make a card with 100% dies ... no stamping ... and lots of yummy embellies!

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

The mason jar is one of my favorite dies from Stampin' Up!  and the adorable little pink 'love' charm is a gift I received from my crafty friend, Jill!  Everything else is from the Paper Sweeties boutique:

Die supply list:  Party Time Sweet Cuts

Embellishment supply list:  Cotton Candy Seam Binding, Cookie Dough Sequins, Frosting Sequins, Cotton Candy Sequins

papersweeties-debbie-3-2-15(1)

After I die cut the flower shapes using the Party Time Sweet Cuts set, I crinkled them to create shape and then added a Cookie Dough Sequin to each center.  The leaves were die cut and then pinched in the centers to add texture.  I inked the edges of the mason jar with cream paint to create a time-worn look and then die cut the center of the jar using an oval shape so I could create a SHAKER CARD with pretty sequins inside!

Please be sure to visit the Tea Room to be inspired by the rest of the Shabby Girls projects!

This card also goes along perfectly with the March Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties, so I'm linking up there too!

When I saw this paper recently at Enchanted Cottage while attending the SSAT show in Winston-Salem, NC, I just knew I wanted to use this adorable photo of my friend's daughter and string a clothesline of cute, paper pieced clothes to match the printed ones!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm so happy you stopped by my blog today for a visit!  I'm popping in to share a little something {sweet} I recently created for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room - 'Sweet Shabby Flowers'!

Debbie TSTR #228 (2)

The Tea Room is sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps and I got to use the Flower Pot #2 digital image to create with today!  I printed, colored with copics and then fussy cut the image out.  I added glitter to the centers of the blooms and then adhered lace to the top of the flower pot.  A Cotton Candy Baker's Twine bow was added to the side of the pot and a plant stake was inserted into the pot -- stamped using the Wagon Add-on: bloom & grow stamp set and then die cut using the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die!

Debbie TSTR #228 (3)

To finish things off, I added a couple of {sweet} Cotton Candy Sequins to the upper and lower corners of the card -- such a pretty little pop of color ... I love the unique, flower-shaped iridescent sequins carried in the Paper Sweeties boutique!

Debbie TSTR #228 (1)

TSTR #226

Welcome to my blog today, crafty friends!  I'm sharing a little something I created for this week's new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room - 'Polka Dot Love'!

Debbie TSTR #226 (2)

I die cut the banner twice - once in white and once in pink - using the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die set and then strung it at the top of the card base.  Next I stamped the watering can and polka dotted boots from the Showering You With Love stamp set and then die cut them using the coordinating Showering You With Love Sweet Cuts die set.  I colored them with a pink marker and then added glitter to the polka dots.  I glued a bouquet of paper flowers inside the watering can and then attached the can, boots and a glittered chipboard heart to the base of the card.

Debbie TSTR #226 (3)

I stamped the little banner using the Banner Wishes and Splish Splash stamp sets and then adhered it to the glittered heart.  Last, I added a couple of beautiful, flower-shaped iridescent Robin Egg Sequins for a little more sparkle and shine: L-O-V-E!!
