Paper Sweeties July 2017 New Release Rewind!


Hi, friends! It's time for one last release post for the July 2017 release at Paper Sweeties, and we have some super sweet products to share with you this month! This is also my last post for this team, as I will be teaching full time for the first time this fall! Thank you to Debbie for this opportunity! :) Today I'm sharing a card that uses some old favorites, along with the *NEW* Scallop Rectangle Sweet Cut dies and Kindness Matters stamps. Take a peek...


I started by creating the framed scene using the *NEW* Scallop Rectangles Sweet Cut dies, the Sweeties Pets stamp set, and the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts dies. I then added a few Pink Grapefruit sequins with liquid pearl centers for a pop of color! The sentiment is from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set and was cut and framed using the Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts dies.


Finishing touches include some ribbon and a doily. I think this card turned out super cute! What do you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you hop over to the Paper Sweeties store and grab these goodies TODAY!  For more inspiration, make sure to check out what the other DT gals have made this month!

Here's the list~


And Here's What's New!


Again, a HUGE thank you to Debbie for allowing me
to join the team for the last few months!
It's been a joy and a pleasure!

Until later, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Paper Sweeties July 2017 New Release Sneak Peeks!


Hi, friends! It's time for another release at Paper Sweeties, and we have some super sweet products to share with you this month! Today I have a CAS one layer card to share. Take a peek...


I started by heat embossing the wreath image from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set in gold. I then water colored the image with bold summery colors and added some gel pen to the centers of the flowers. The sentiments, also from the *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set, was stamped into the middle of the wreath last. The *NEW* Kindness Matters stamp set also has matching Kindness Matters Sweet Cuts dies, too! SCORE!


Finishing touches include some fun polka dot ribbon and corner rounding at the bottom of the card. I think this is super sweet, and I hope you love it! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! :)

MHKDesigns: July 2017 Challenge


Happy July, friends! It's time for a brand new challenge over at the MHKDesigns blog. This month's inspiration has some beautiful summery colors and a lot of nature! If you don't want to follow the inspiration, but you're going to use products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop, then it's ANYTHING GOES! But, seriously. This inspiration...


Isn't that so beautiful?! I was inspired by the flowers and bold colors. I went pretty simple, but I love the effect. Take a peek at my finished creation...


This card uses an image and sentiment from the Get Well Flowers digital stamp set. I recolored the rose image to make it yellow, then printed it out on a panel. The sentiment was printed on vellum. I chose to use bright green and red to mat my various panels before adding them to a kraft card base. Some faux stitching and glitter were added for texture and shine.



I added some glitter gel pen to the heart of the sentiment to make it match the red the sentiment was matted onto. I LOVE the way this looks and I hope you agree! I can't wait to read your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks for stopping by, friends! Come join in the fun on the MHKDesigns blog for your chance to win some digi goodies from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Until next time, HUGS and happy {digital} stamping, friends!

House of Cards: July 2017 Challenge


Hey, everyone! It's time for another challenge at House of Cards and this month's inspiration is super fun! We are asking you to...

...use stripes and/or this color inspiration!

I kinda sorta used both. I did love the sunny stripes idea, but I also wanted to use a floral image. I decided to use digital stamps and papers from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop to create a one layer card using this inspiration! Take a peek...


The image and sentiment are from the Beauty digital stamp set and the papers are from the Sunflower Sampler (green polka dots) and Twinkle Twinkle Little Stripes (yellow *stripes*) digital paper packs. I added some Wink of Stella glitter to the leaves of the flower, but I was unable to photograph the shine properly. A few bits of bling from Close to My Heart added the finishing touch! What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take a bit of time to come and play along with us at House of Cards.  Don't forget to stop by the other DT members' blogs for even MORE amazing inspiration--they always blow me away!  I'll be back later this month with more crafty posts!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Paper Sweeties Challenge - July 2017 Anything Goes!


Hello, all! It's time for another challenge at Paper Sweeties and we have a super fun and festive inspiration for you this month! Take a peek...


Isn't that super fun?! I was inspired by that wreath and the patriotic feel! Here's my completed creation...


I used the wreath stamp from the Hello Spring stamp set and then the Hello Spring Sweet Cuts dies to create my patriotic wreath. The flower was made using the little heart die and the flower die from the Sweet Cuts set and I love it!


This sweet sentiment is from the Love You To Pieces set. I stamped it onto vellum before adding it to my card. I love the fun fonts!


I kept it CAS with some dry embossing and a few litter embellishments. I love the way this turned out and I hope you do, too! Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you think!


That's all for me, friends!  Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by!  I hope you come and join in the fun with us this month, and don't forget to check out the other DT makes!
