I'm here with Paper Sweeties today for a FUN Blog Hop with Pink & Main to help CELEBRATE Paper Sweeties 7th Birthday!! I have several projects to share for today and each one has its own personality!! I ENJOY the part of the FUN/CHALLENGE, when using products that have already been picked for you and you have to use them and create projects with them!! Well here's what I've created for today's Blog Hop!!
My First Project HAD to be a Treat Box!! I LOVE making these and use them ALOT so I like having them on hand for when the occasion arises!! I started by using the Paper Sweeties Treat Box and Die Cut it from some of the Pink & Main It's a Party 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad!!
Here's a Photo to show how to use this Die Set even with 6x6 Patterned Papers!! It's alittle larger than most 6x6 patterns on the pads, but the Fold Side can be cut from the edge and will NEVER be seen as its adhered to the inside of the Treat Box!! So don't ever feel like you CAN'T use this Die Set with ALL of your 6x6 Papers!! If I'm honest that's ALL I use!!! I hardly ever buy 12x12 Patterned Papers unless I see a specific pattern I like!! I Die Cut 2 of these panels and then used some Gina K Designs Terrific Tape to adhere it together!! I cut a Rectangle to fit the front of the Treat Box and then added Distress Oxide Ink in both Scattered Straw and Peacock Feathers around the edges!! I used the NEW Cupcake and Sprinkles Stamp and Die Set and created a Sweet Cupcake!! Yummy enough to eat right!!??
I used Copic Markers to Color the Top and Wrap using colors that coordinate with the Patterned Paper!! (Cupcake: RV00, RV11 & RV34 YR00 &YR18 Wrap: BG00, BG45 & BG69 Flowers: RV00, RV11 & RV34 Y11 & YR23 Leaves: YG21, YG25 & G07) I created the base of the Cupcake from some TE Cardstock and then used some Glitter Paper to Stamp and Emboss the Detail Layer and Die Cut it out and adhered it to the Cupcake Base!! I wanted to create a Candle so I decided to use a part of the Patterned Paper from the It's a Party Paper Pad!! Then I added a Pink & Main Birthday Boy Glossy Dots to the top for the Flame!! Tied a Twine Bow and added a Bubble Gum Seam Binding Bow, along with Stamping and Embossing the Sentiment from the Pink & Main Birthday Script Stamp Set onto a Tag Die Cut from the Paper Sweeties Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts Die Set using some VersaFine Black Onyx Ink and Embossing it with WoW Neutral Shimmer Glitter embossing Powder!! Added the extra Lil' Flower Image from the set and my Treat Box Gift Tag and the Design was complete!!
I used more of the Patterned Paper from the Pink & Main It's a Party 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad as the background for my next Card inking the edges with some Weathered Wood Distress Oxide Ink!! Then I Die Cut the Paper Sweeties Circle Scalloped Frame Sweet Cuts Die from some Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Sheet and Foiled it with some Turquoise Deco Foil!! It matches the Patterned Paper PERFECTLY!! I Inked the inside Circle with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and then adhered it to my Card Panel using Gina K Designs Foam Tape!! I Stamped and Embossed the Cupcake Image from the NEW Cupcake and Sprinkles Stamp and Die Set and created a Sweet Cupcake!! Yummy enough to eat right!!??
I used Copic Markers to Color the Top and Wrap using colors that coordinate with the Patterned Paper!! (Cupcake: RV00, RV11 & RV34 YR00 &YR18 Wrap: BG00, BG45 & BG69 Flowers: RV00, RV11 & RV34 Y11 & YR23 Leaves: YG21, YG25 & G07) I created the base of the Cupcake from some TE Cardstock and then used some Glitter Paper to Stamp and Emboss the Detail Layer and Die Cut it out and adhered it to the Cupcake Base!! I wanted to create a Candle so I decided to use a part of the Patterned Paper from the It's a Party Paper Pad!! Then I added a Pink & Main Birthday Boy Glossy Dots to the top for the Flame!! I Stamped and Embossed the Present Image from the Paper Sweeties Hugs & Kisses Stamp Set!! I used the Copic Markers in Y11 & YR23!! Then I Die Cut the TE Sea Salt Cardstock from the Paper Sweeties Sweet Borders Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using some Versafine Black Onyx Ink and Embossing with WoW Neutral Shimmer Glitter Embossing Powder!! I LOVE how all of the SPARKLE adds to the Design of the entire Card!!
For my last Card I wanted to create more of a Masculine Design!! Although, I think this could work for a Female too!! These are some of my FAVORITE Colors, so I'd LOVE a card like this!! Depends on the recipient I suppose!!?? I started by using more of the Patterned Paper from the Pink & Main It's a Party 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad as the background for my last Card!! I die cut a Frame from some TE Blueberry Cardstock and then Stamped and Embossed the Anchor Image from the Paper Sweeties Beach Therapy Stamp Set onto the Card Panel using some Versa Mark Ink and Embossing with Ranger Ink Navy Metallic Embossing Powder!! I used my 1/2" Purple Tape to tape the edges off as I wanted to keep the border White!!
I then used my Copic Markers to Color in the Anchor Images!! I used B32, B34 & B39 then added some shading around the Anchors using C3 & C00!! I LOVE the way it turned out and how well it matches the Patterned Paper!! I also wanted some dimension, so I decided to POP UP one of the Anchors beside the Happy Birthday Sentiment!! I used the coordinating Beach Therapy Sweet Cuts Set and added some Burlap Twine to make it look more realistic!!
I used the Pink and Main Happy Birthday Dies for my Sentiment!! I Foiled some Deco Foil Toner Sheets with the Deco Foil in Gold Shattered Foil and then Die Cut the Happy!! I also Die Cut it again from some TE Mustard Cardstock and layered them altogether to create a 3-D Die Cut!! I Die Cut the Shadow Layer from some Vellum and then adhered them together!! I used Foam Tape to POP UP the sentiment and I LOVE how the Card turned out!!
