Paper Sweeties January 2018 Blast From the Past Favorites! - Day 3


Welcome to Day 3 of Paper Sweeties Blast From The Past Favorites!  Today I'm sharing with you a project I made using Emma... my favorite little Sweetie!

I started with a background I created a while ago at a crop with friends.  One of the girls showed us all how to use a Gelli Plate with acrylic paints.  All I added to the background for this project were the snowflakes.  I used the three snowflakes from the Thanks Snow Much stamp set and stamped them randomly on the background with Versamark ink and heat embossed them in white.  

I'm playing along again with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC437.. inspiration photo is below!  You should check it out!


Then I colored up and cut out Emma and stamped this adorable sweater dress and pair of boots from the Tackle Life One Cup At A Time stamp set.  I stamped the dress on some sweater paper.   I didn't have quite the right color to go with my background so I used the pattern that had mostly white and colored some of  the sections with a coordinating marker.  The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped and heat embossed it on a banner cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts then I stamped, colored and cut out the fun to go cup from the Coffee Plan Your Life Series stamp set.

Thanks for stopping again!  Hope you've enjoyed our blasts from the past!  And if you haven't checked out what everyone else created for you today, then be sure you do!

Paper Sweeties January 2018 Blast from the past favorites! - Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of Paper Sweeties Blast From the Past Favorites!  Originally I was planning a snowman for this one and the houses were going to be the background, but once I started stamping them I decided on this instead!  I'm playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC437 and the inspiration photo is below.  I cut a scalloped circle frame out of glitter paper and another out of the blue snowflake background paper.  I used the outside of the glitter cut and the inside of the snowflake cut.


I used the inside circle to cut some layers of snow using the little snow drift from the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts.  I stamped two houses, one from the Somewhere Over The Rainbow Set and the other from the Home Is Where Your Story Begins stamp set.  I colored them with my copics.  I lined them up for my scene and cut one of the houses in half since I knew I'd only fit less than half inside the circle.  Once I adhered them all I trimmed away the excess.  And those little hearts from Somewhere Over The Rainbow... LOVE!


To finish it off, I used some ribbon, sequins and stamped and diecut a snowflake from the Snow Friends set and this cute sentiment from the Sent From My Heart stamp set along with a few pink sequins!

Thanks for stopping again and be sure to check out what everyone has created for today:

Paper Sweeties January 2018 Blast from the past favorites-Day 1


Welcome to Paper Sweeties From The Past Favorites!  This January we're sharing projects we've made with some of our favorite previously released Paper Sweeties stamps and Sweet Cuts dies!

I used some of my favorites in this Valentine for someone special!  That heart doily ... on of my Top 10 for sure!  I love that the inside heart and outside scallop cut separately from the With Love Sweet Cuts!  I can use them together or apart, with the same paper on the inside and out or two different... so many options!  Here I cut some out of a pretty white and kraft heart print and layered them side by side on top of my embossed kraft background.


And these cuties from the Sweeties Pets stamp set!!  Love these two.  And you know those hearts floating up between them from the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Stamp and Sweet Cuts sets... I love that whole set, but these hearts I use over and over and over... 


I stamped and embossed my sentiments from a few more of my faves!  The Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts... another one use all the time... this banner is great just to decorate and embellish or to use with a sentiment!  And that stitched heart from the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts.. I love that you can add the hole to it or not!  Here I opted to not so I just have the stitched heart.  And can we talk about this awesome sentiment from the Kindness Matters stamp set??  LOVE!  And I scattered around some paper flowers from my stash and those beautiful Paper Sweeties sequins in strawberry!


Hope you enjoyed your stop here today!  Links to all of the Paper Sweeties products I used today are below!  Come back tomorrow for some more of my faves!  In the meantime, be sure to hop around to see what all of my teamies have made for you today:
