Take a look at what I have created for you this month!

The top photo is a little dark, due to the long shadows and fading afternoon light of Autumn.  I used a few of my favorite Paper Sweeties stamps to create an Autumn arrangement, then added a little bit of glittery color to imitate a little sparkly frost on an October morning.

Take a look at what our design team has created for you this month!

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties September New Release Sneak Peeks! Our brand new September Release is so much fun! It will put you in the mood to give and receive a little happy mail! You can see more great inspiration and ideas over on the Paper Sweeties Blog right here: https://papersweeties.com/

Have you seen this fun trend of decorating the outside of your plain white envelopes with stamped designs? As soon as I saw the new September release, I couldn’t wait to try this out for myself. There are so many adorable images to mix and match! Take a look at today’s envelope!

I used a big white envelope and stamped a combination of designs from Sent From My Heart, Love You to Pieces, and I Love Summer! There’s plenty of room to write the address, and this little doggie at the mailbox is so sweet! To create the image, I used a masking technique to make the envelope as falat as possible, and lightly colored the design with copics.

Paper Sweeties Challenge – September 2017

 

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties September Challenge #59, Anything Goes! We have got a great inspiration photo for you that you are just going to love! These rich, red fruit colors always remind me of fall! You can get all the details and link up your September Challenge over on the Paper Sweeties blog right here: https://papersweeties.com/

I combined a few of my favorite Paper Sweeties stamps to create a September harvest party card. What’s better than coffee and friends? I had originally planned to create a stamped background, but all of the colorful, tiny pieces really stood out better with the crisp white look.
