Paper Sweeties 6th Anniversary | Guest Designer

I'm thrilled to be helping Paper Sweeties celebrate their 6th Anniversary!  Check out their newest challenge that starts today:

I'll be definitely sure to come back to play along with that fun inspiration!  The winner will receive a $100 shopping spree to Paper Sweeties. Voting is turned on for viewers to 'like' their favorites so the public can choose who wins!  There is also a coupon for 20% off any full-price products over on the Paper Sweeties blog!

I'm sharing two cards today so let's get started!  They feature Eat Cake, Keep Calm and Drink Coffee stamps + coordinating Sweet Cuts.

My first card features the Eat Cake stamp set.  I love this one, cake and tea = yes, please!

My card design was inspired by Sunday Stamps:

I love tilted panels!  Although funny story, I gave my Momma a card that was designed with a tilted panel.  She whispers to me that I might want to fix it since it was crooked (Sigh).  

My next card features the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee stamps + coordinating Sweet Cuts:

Think Kona Coffee!  This card was fun to put together.  The papers are from a shop in Maui called Island Paperie.  I love the coffee cup Sweet Cuts!  I mounted the pattern paper on black craft foam for some visual interest.

Did you happen to see my psychedelic steam?  It's some fun embossing powder that I've had forever.  The pattern paper is a bit 'slick' so I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx and quickly covered it with WOW! Clear Embossing Powder.  That will set the ink, I hope :)

My card was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch!

Thanks so very much for stopping by today!  Make sure you check out the Paper Sweeties blog and wish them a Happy Anniversary!


These are FABULOUS! LOVING the cake!!!!!!!!

Awesome cards! Love both sketches you used & your interpretations.
Your mom's comment on the slanted card reminds me of my sister's
comment on a distressed card I gave her a couple years ago. Yep, it
stressed her out. 1st & last time she'll get a distressed card. lol
