Paper Sweeties April 2021 New Release Sneak Peeks – 2nd Quarter Sweet Kit!

Hey Y'all!!!  Welcome to Paper Sweeties!!!  Today I'm showcasing the April New Release with a sneak peek!  What fun stamps, dies & sentiments.  Be sure to come back on the 15th & 16th to see more peeks.  Love the Sweet Kit these stamps and dies are included with.  And thrilled to be part of the Design Team.  You'll find links to the sneak peeks from other members of the design team below as well as all the details for this card.

 

 

I started by coloring the mixers from the Paper Sweeties ‘Sweet Mini Duo: Homemade‘.

Cut them out with the matching mixer dies.  How fun!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Mixers (RV09, RV04, RV02, Y19, Y15, Y08, C6, C4, C2)

White Gel Pen

 

 

The card base is made out of a pretty pink card stock that matches perfectly with the patterns from the beautiful Paper Sweeties April ‘Sweet Kit‘ paper.   Cut and rounded the corners on the polkadot pattern for the first layer.

 

Paper Sweeties has beautiful dies.  Great edges, clean finishes.  I used the ‘Rectangle Scallop Frames‘ dies to cut a piece of the pink card stock for the frame and background for the mixers.   Popped up the mixers with foam tape.

 

 

The ‘Sweet Mini Duo: Homemade‘ also comes with a cool ‘Homemade‘ sentiment with individual letters you can arrange in any kind of pattern you would like.   Stamped them on another pattern from the ‘Sweet Kit‘.   I used two other sentiments from the ‘Sweet Mini Homemade Addon: For You‘ stamp set.  From My Kitchen.  Added a beautiful yellow ribbon.

Make The Cards Challenge Week #12 – Theme Challenge Butterflies

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #12.  This week's challenge was a theme challenge with Butterflies.  I love the Butterfly dies from Scrappy Tails Crafts.  Add in a little fun alcohol ink and you've got a beautiful card.  New challenges are published weekly at 9 a.m. on Monday.  Join the fun with the color challenge HERE.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I love alcohol ink.  I used Pearl, Copper & Sailboat Blue.

Used the alcohol inks for the background as well as the butterflies.

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.  The ‘Alcohol Ink' paper I used is something new for me.  It's called ‘Craft Plastic Opaque White'.  Comes in 12 x 12 sheets.  Allows the alcohol ink to lay on the paper longer so it's more flexible with moving the colors around.  I like it a lot!

 

The layer with the blue, copper and pearl alcohol is cut with Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge A2' honey cuts.

 

 

The beautiful butterflies are from Scrappy Tails Crafts.  There are two sets:  ‘Open Butterflies‘ and ‘Sitting Butterflies‘.  Stunning and very intricate designs.

 

 

The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Love You Bunches' Stamp Set.

 

 

We ARE better together, aren't we?

Faux Easter Cupcakes

Hey Y'all!!!  Fakery is afoot at Lollipots.  How about these Faux Easter Cupcakes (and yes I know Easter is over – lol).  So fun to make.  Covered in beautiful green grass and festive Easter eggs and jelly beans.  They look good enough to just take a big bite out of.  But DON'T.  It's all FAKE.  Would look great on your tiered trays!  Click on one of the pictures and be magically taken to my Etsy store to purchase.

Happy Bee Day

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful card as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts.  I love these fun Oopsy Daisies and those cute little bees.  I'm ready to see some bees here in NC.  It's been a long winter.

This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

 

I started by coloring the daisies from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Oopsy Daisy‘ stamp set with copic markers.  What beautiful daisies.  There is a matching ‘Oopsy Daisy‘ die set too.

You can find the Oopsy Daisy bundle HERE!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Daisies & Bees (R46, R24, R43, R30, R21, Y35, Y38, Y15, YG06, YG03)

 

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Poppy Parade‘ card stock.   The background is from a retired piece of Stampin' UP! Designer Paper called ‘See A Silhouette'.  Matched the pretty daisies perfectly.  The sentiment is also from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Oopsy Daisy‘ stamp set.  The set has several fun sentiments for you to choose from.  Love the ‘bees'.  Added some pretty ribbon and yellow matte dots to finish the card.

 

Wouldn't you love to have those beautiful daisies in your backyard?

Garden Marci’s Wishing You A Happy Birthday

Hey Y'all!!!  You can never have enough tags.  I like to give little special gifts and am always needing a tag.  Marci In The Garden from La-La Land Crafts is the perfect digital stamp for a gift tag.  Do you have a favorite tag you've received from someone and kept.  Comment with a picture and share the fun!  All the details for this card are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring ‘In The Garden Marci‘ from La-La Land Crafts.  I just love digital stamps.  She's colored on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.  Beautiful paper!  My fav!

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Clothes, Shoes, Headband (R05, R02, R11, R00)

• Hair (100, W10, W9, W7)

• Skin (E11, E21, E04, E00, E000, R20, R30)

• Flowers (BG07, BG05, BG01, Y38, Y35, Y32)

 

 

The tag is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Calypso Coral‘ card stock and cut with La-La Land Crafts ‘Large Stitched Tags‘ dies.  I cut a background layer using some cute polkadot paper I made with Distress Oxide Inks and Stampin' UP!'s ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ card stock.  You can use La-La Land Crafts ‘Scalloped Rectangles‘ dies to cut all sizes of beautiful rectangles.

 

 

 

Cut the Happy Birthday sentiment for the tag with Stampin' UP's ‘Calypso Coral‘ and ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ card stock using La-La Land Crafts ‘Happy Birthday‘ die.  Tied a pretty little bow on the top.  So cute!

 

Marci's Happy Birthday tag would be SO cute on any special gift!!
