Paper Sweeties October Release Sneak Peeks!


Hi, friends!  It's time for another release at Paper Sweeties, and we've got some gorgeous CHRISTMAS inspiration for you over the next few days!  For today, I'm sharing a card that uses the emboss resist technique.  Take a peek...


This card uses a stamp from the *NEW* set called The Reason For the Season.  I LOVE that this sentiment is designed to look like a small Christmas Tree, so I decided to heat emboss it, then watercolor over it to create a tree shape.  A Cookie Dough sequin was added to the center of the star for more sparkle and shine.


I added some green grosgrain ribbon, red velvet ribbon, and gold elastic cording to tie some Rusty Jingle Bells to the bottom of my focal panel.  I LOVE these textures and colors on top of each other!


Some faux stitching and patterned paper were all that this needed to finish the card!  I really love it and hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know what you think! :)


That's all for me today, friends!  I'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration using *NEW* products from Paper Sweeties!  Make sure to take a peek at the inspiration from the rest of the team, too...

Here's your hop list~

Don't forget about the October Card Kit!
