Hello, all! I am super excited to be back today to share my creations for the Paper Sweeties December 2015 release! I get to share all FOUR of my creations with you today, so let's get started!
My first cards uses the *NEW* Merry and Bright stamp set and its coordinating Merry and Bright Sweet Cuts dies! I stamped the tree onto pattered paper, then added some die cut garland and enamel shapes as ornaments. I layered the die cut star with an enamel star to add more shine and tie in all the enamel going on here. ;) The sentiment was stamped onto vellum, then die cut using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts dies. A doily was used as a "snow bank". Some patterned paper and ribbon finished this card off!
Next up, another card using the Merry and Bright stamps and Merry and Bright Sweet Cuts dies. This time, I stamped the tree, watercolored it, added a shadow. I stamped the garland and ornaments, colored the ornaments in, then added a die cut star and glitter for detail. Some ribbon up top helps to make the card look more finished.
I then turned to the *NEW* Sugar and Spice stamps and Sugar and Spice Sweet Cuts dies. I make a fun ginger-girl using the dies, added some Marshmallow sequins for a necklace and as added sparkle other places, and some googly eyes. SO FUN! I kept the colors girly and fun. The little candy cane is also from the Paper Sweeties store. This could be used for a holiday card OR for any occasion where a little girl is celebrated!
Finally, I chose to shy away from the upcoming holiday (kind of) and make another card using the Merry and Bright stamps and Merry and Bright Sweet Cuts dies. This one was SUPER fun--I stamped the star image directly onto the card base in silver ink, then heat embossed them with some clear glittery powder. I added some ribbon, a strip for the sentiment, and a punched and die cut embellie. I was thinking this would be a fun birthday card, graduation card, OR if I added some red, how perfect for the 4th of July would this be?! I LOVE the versatility of these new sets! :)
