Paper Sweeties February Inspiration Challenge #28 - 'Sweetheart'


Hi, friends!  Are you ready for another SWEET challenge at Paper Sweeties?!  I hope so!  We've got a fabulous prompt for you this month and the team has amazing creations to share with you!  Check out our inspiration board...


Isn't that the sweetest?!  I was totally loving these colors and so they had to be used in my creation.  I had also been thinking of making a shaped easel card for a special Valentine, and so that's the route I went.  Heart shaped, of course!  Take a peek...


I started by creating my focal panel.  I added the patterned paper to the die cut heart and then decided to jazz up Abigail using the Abigail Sweet Cuts and the Sweetie Pie stamp set.  Her skin, bow, and hair were colored in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I paper pieced her clothes and added an enamel heart to her shirt for added interest.


After adding Abigail to the panel, I used the Be Happy stamp set to stamp some of the larger hearts onto red patterned paper.  I then die cut these out with the Be Happy Sweet Cuts and also some smaller hearts as well.  I added some Peppermint sequins for some extra shine and some enamel hearts to tie it all together.


After I finished the main panel, I added it to the card base.  For the sentiment, I stamped the banner and a sentiment from the Hello Friend stamp set.  I then die cut this out using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts and layered it to the base on top of a punched and layered heart.


This creation is destined to go to my sweet nieces who live in a different state this Valentine's Day.  What do you think?  Will they love it?!  I hope so--I really like the way this turned out!  I'd love it if you left me a comment to tell me what you think, too!

That's all for me right now!  Please hop over to the Paper Sweeties blog and join in this fun challenge and go grab these goodies from the Paper Sweeties store!  For more inspiration, check out the other Sweeties' creations..
