Paper Sweeties May 2017 New Release Rewind!


Hey, all!  It's time for another Paper Sweeties release!  We've got three new stamp sets and a very versatile Sweet Cuts set, too! You will love these products!  Today I've made a spring themed card to share with you.  Take a peek...


I used the *NEW* Handmade For You set to create a cloud with a sentiment inside. A butterfly, stamped from the Bee Happy stamp set and cut using the Bee Happy Sweet Cuts dies, was paper pieced, colored with a Sakura glitter gel pen, and glittered with some Stickles was added to accent the cloud.


The garden down below was created with the *NEW* Scallop Circle, Bee Happy, and Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts dies. I added some Bubblegum, Blue Raspberry, and Sugar Sprinkles sequins with liquid pearl centers for added texture and shine. Some glitter adds even more texture to the flower centers.


I just adore the different patterned papers used here and how they look together! I think it turned out to be super sweet! What do you think? I can't wait to hear what you think about my creation 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!  For more inspiration, make sure to check out what the other DT gals have made this month!

Paper Sweeties May 2017 New Release Party!


Hey, all!  It's time for another Paper Sweeties release!  We've got three new stamp sets and a very versatile Sweet Cuts set, too! You will love these products!  Today I've made a fun soccer themed card to share with you.  Take a peek...


I used Jake stamp and the Jake Sweet Cut along with the *NEW* Score stamp set to create my little soccer player. Jake was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the outfit was paper pieced.


The sentiment is also from the *NEW* Score stamp set. I colored in the outline letters with a Sakura glitter gel pen for some added color and shine.


A trio of glittery enamel stars in a masculine color scheme finished of this creation. I think it's adorable--what do you think? I can't wait to hear what you think about my creation in the comments below! :)

Hey, all!  It's time for another Paper Sweeties release!  We've got three new stamp sets and a very versatile Sweet Cuts set, too! You will love these products!  Today I've made a CAS masculine birthday card to share with you.  Take a peek...


This card uses the *NEW* Howdy Y'all stamp set. I stamped and paper pieced the hat image and added a sentiment below.  I used distressed papers for a worn and weathered look for the hat. :)


Some faux stitching, twine, and a button helped to embellish this simple masculine birthday card. This card will be perfect for any cowboy on their special day! I can't wait to hear what you think about my creation in the comments below! :)

MHKDesigns: May 2017 Challenge


Happy May, friends! It's time for another monthly challenge to begin at MHKDesigns, and this month we have a fun birthday themed inspiration for you! Of course, if you use products from the MHKDesigns Etsy Shop, it's ANYTHING GOES! But we love seeing everything you make, so link up with us! Here's this month's inspiration...


I was inspired by the colors, cakes, and polka dots! I did some layering, coloring, and glitterfying (that's a word!) to create my creation this moth. Take a peek at my completed card...


The image and sentiment are both from the Eat Your Cake! digital stamp set. I colored the image in with gel pens and added glitter to the frosting. The sentiment was printed onto vellum before being added as a pennant to the card.


The papers I used are from the Rosy Posy digital paper pack. I added some magenta glitter paper, a doily, and a gold washi star with a rhinestone in the middle to finish the card off.  I hope you like it! I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you hop over to join in our monthly challenge at MHKDesigns!  There are prizes for each one, and you can use any products you'd like! :) Don't forget to leave some love with the other gals on this wonderful DT, too!

House of Cards: Color Inspiration and/or Add Sequins!


Hello, all! It's time for another challenge at House of Cards and I am seriously excited about the inspiration we have this month for you! We're asking you to add sequins to your cards, be inspired by our color board, or BOTH! Take a peek at the colors we have this month...


I was inspired by both challenge aspects. I created a fun one layer card using Photoshop, and then I added sequins around the border! Here's the complete card...


I LOVE this sentiment--I am going to have either a bulletin board, door decorated, or poster made to have in my classroom with it! I also think the two fonts I used are fun and whimsical together. :)


I chose to add AB clear and black sequins only so that the colors of the border I designed would stand out. A few liquid pearls add a bit more texture and shine, as well.


I really adore the way this card turned out! I hope you like it, too! 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! :)
