Paper Sweeties February 2018 Blast from the Past


Welcome back to another Blast from the Past from Paper Sweeties! For my card today, I wanted to incorporate Valentine's Day so I made this card for my hubby who is away trucking right now so will receive it at a later date....


I started out with the "With Love" heart Sweet Cuts and some sweet, pretty designer papers. I hand stitched around the borders of the papers and then used our Sweet Borders to put my sentiment from Hello Friend on with white embossing powder. Very CAS but I love how it turned out! 


Please be sure to check out what the rest of my Paper Sweeties team mates have created for you for our February Blast from The Past:


Thanks for stopping in and we'll be back tomorrow with some more blasts from the past - for you all! Cheers!

Paper Sweeties: February Blast from the Past!


Welcome back to another Blast from the Past from Paper Sweeties! For my card today, I wanted to take you back to the card I made for the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using some of my favorite Paper Sweeties goodies! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a big time coffee lover so this card is yet another of my favorites from PS! 


I started out with my "With Love" heart Sweet Cuts then cut out my cute coffee cup with my "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee" Sweet Cuts. The steam was cut from Crumb Cake using "Homemade With Love" Sweet Cuts. The sentiment was stamped in brown using a sentiment from "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee" stamp set! I just LOVE how this card came together! :) The sweet sequins are our "Bubblegum" series - adorable!

MM #275 {Pastel Colors!}


Welcome back to my blog! This week at Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge, miss Sue is our hostess and she's looking for us to use "pastel colors" on our cards:



I wanted to CASE a beautiful Christmas card I received from one of our girls, Sandy, in our monthly stamping club and it just so happened that I had all the goodies to do it. This is Sandy's GORGEOUS card she made for us:


Isn't that just BEAUTIFUL?!? I dug out my Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up! and got to work...I used a silver paper with Pink Pirouette for a pastel color. The sentiment was cut out using my Fancy Stitched Labels from Craftin' Desert Divas. 


Thanks so much for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over and see what the rest of the Merry Makers have created using Sue's "pastel color inspiration" challenge! Cheers!

Jam-makin' Days of Winter....


Welcome back to my blog for the wrap-up of our Paper Sweeties Winter "Blast from the Past!" We did not have a new release this month so we were showcasing some of our favorite stamps/sweet cuts relating to winter.

Now...I bet you are asking me "why a jar then?" Well...I don't know about a lot of you, but I freeze a lot of my fruit in the summer when I harvest it, then I make jam on the cold, blustery days of winter! The house smells so heavenly and it gets our shelves stocked up and good for the following year when things are super busy!! :) 

I made this card last year and I really wanted to show it off again - it's one of my favorites and I hope that's ok :)


My card was made using an older stamp/die set called Mason Jar along with Handmade for You Accessories stamp set 
and Sweet Cuts - Circle Scallop Frames.


Please be sure to check out what the rest of my Paper Sweeties team mates have created for you using some of our "winter" themed stamps and sweet cuts:

Merry Monday #273 {Color Challenge!}

I decided to go with some die cut snowflakes to finish off the card and added some glittery red gumdrops to finish it off....hope you like it!


Thanks so much for stopping in today - be sure to hop on over and see what the rest of the Merry Makers have created using Marcia's "color inspiration" challenge! Cheers!

Sending Warm Hugs & Kisses with Paper Sweeties!


Hello there everyone! This month over at Paper Sweeties, instead of a new release, we are showcasing some of our favorite "winter" goodies for our January 2018 Blast from the Past!! 

For my card today, I have used a few different stamp sets and sweet cuts to create my super cute snow friends card (all products listed with links at the bottom of this post). 

I stamped the snow people from Snow Friends on white card stock, cut them out with the matching sweet cuts - then stamped their accessories onto various designer paper and cut them out with the dies, glued them all together and I think they make a super cute pair!

The sentiment is from Let it Snow, and I also used the With Love sweet cuts heart to make their backdrop...

Here's a close up....




I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes

QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
