Paper Sweeties New Release Rewind

What a treat to have you stop by my blog today for the New Release Rewind for Paper Sweeties.  And if you've been here for the Sneak Peek post, the New Release Day, and today's post....well, then thank you three-fold.  I'm humbled to think that my creativity would bring anyone by, so....it makes me smile.  I enjoy working with Paper Sweeties adorable products SO much each and every month.  Well, this month was no exception to that fact.  I've been having so much fun creating my tags and cards for this month's New Release at Paper Sweeties.  I know that you will love these two new sets as much as I do.  The new Blessed Stamp Set and the new Truck Add-Ons: Occasions Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts are absolutely delightful.
For today's Release Rewind, I've created another fun Paper Sweeties card that combines the two fun new sets with some of my other Paper Sweeties favorites.  I started with some patterned papers, and I cut two larger sized tags with the For You Tag Sweet Cuts, and the smaller using the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts.  On the smaller tag, I stamped the sentiment (Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice) using the new Truck Add On: Occasions Stamp Set.   I used this same new set to stamp the pumpkins, and I used the coordinating Sweet Cuts to cut the pumpkins.
These two new sets can definitely be used during the holidays as well as all year long.  Like all of the products at Paper Sweeties, they're super versatile and useful during the entire year for all sorts of different projects.  They'll make a nice little addition to your stamp/crafting supply.  SO FUN and with endless creative possibilities!
Each tag has some bundled Natural Burlap String topped with several Cookie Dough Sequins, Orange Creamsicle Sequins, Strawberry Sequins, Blueberry Sequins and Green Apple Sequins.  At Paper Sweeties, there's always a perfect color of Seam Binding, Sequins or a perfect Accessory for every project, and all the cutest stamps and dies as well.  Each of my talented teammates has prepared something special to inspire and delight you today.  I hope you'll visit and enjoy each one.  And don't forget to grab these two new fabulous sets from Paper Sweeties before they're gone.

Blessings,
Karen

Fun Elf Tag

Thanks for stopping by again today as I share another tag from the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  The tag I'm sharing here is one that was inspired by the talented and super creative Monika Skinner on Day 12 for Stamplorations.  If you didn't see her adorable tag, it's worth a peek.  She had a cute yellow tag with some elf legs hanging down, some holly and berries on the edges, and some red baker's twine with red bells tied at the top.
My tag is similar in many ways to Monika's, but I had to work with what I had available to me once again.  I cut the tag from yellow cardstock and printed off a digital image from the internet of the elf legs.
I colored them with Copics and hand cut them.  I stamped the holly and berries on the sides/outer edges of the yellow tag using a Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I tied the red baker's twine with red bells at the top of my tag.  Yes, you can certainly say that I was inspired on this one as well.  How fun!

Blessings,
Karen

25 Days of Christmas Tags - This one, as outlined above, was inspired by Monika Skinner on Day 12 for Stamplorations.  How cute were her little elf legs on her sweet yellow tag?  I gave it an inspired try.

Owl Tag


Hello, friends!  I'm here today sharing another tag in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  This time I'm sharing a fun tag that I was inspired to create by a tag shared on Day 9 by Zsofia Molnar for Pink & Main.  I loved her fun green wreath and the adorable owl in the center.  While I don't own the products used by Zsofia on her fabulous tag, I worked with what I had to create this.
I used a Papertrey Ink Tag for the base in white, then I die cut the owl and the wreath and pieced together all the parts.  I stamped the FA LA LA sentiment using the Merry Stamp Set from Paper Sweeties, and tied some red baker's twine at the top.  It's wonderful being inspired to create tags because we all need tags for our Christmas gifts, and handmade tags are so much more fun and meaningful than store-bought tags.  Come and join the fun.  You'll find SO much inspiration, as I have.

Blessings,
Karen

25 Days of Christmas Tags - This tag was inspired by a darling tag shared by Zsofia Molnar for Pink & Main on Day 9.  I just loved her green wreath and darling little owl.

Coffee Lovers Tag

Welcome by again.  I'm sharing a tag with you that I was SO inspired to create when I saw Joyce's Day 9 Coffee Tags for Pink & Main.  I have so many coffee loving family members, and these will make the perfect tags for their Christmas gifts.  I cut a small tag and then stamped the coffee image, colored it with my Copics, and cut it out.  The final touch was a length of red baker's twine.  There is SO much inspiration in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, and I hope that you will come by and be inspired as well.  Let the fun begin!
Thanks again for stopping by,
Karen

I'm linking up here:

25 Days of Christmas Tags - This tag was inspired by DT Member Joyce on Day 9 with her deliciously adorable coffee tag.  I've been inspired to make some more coffee Christmas tags to place on the Christmas gifts of all my coffee-loving family members.

Inspired by Tracey

How much fun is the 25 Days of Christmas Tags?  Come on!  I sure hope that you've been enjoying all the fabulous inspiration each day.  I can't even keep up with all the inspiration I've seen.  I try to make a few tags each day, but it just doesn't always work that way.  I have about 30 more tags sketched out that I want to make (that's how much inspiration I've found) but I don't know if I'll get them all completed in time.  I'm trying to keep up, but they just keep inspiring me...so it never ends.  Well, at least not for 25 days.  LOL
This tag was inspired by the tag shared by Tracey McNeely on Day 12 for Stamplorations.  I absolutely LOVED how she used her deer stamp to create a background for her tag.  Now, I don't have that cute deer tag, so I used a Papertrey Ink stamp set to stamp different patterns of red stars on my background.  Then, like Tracey, I added my sentiment on a small circle in the center of my tag.  And, again like Tracey, I added some little jingle bells to the top of my tag.  She really inspired me on this one.  Can you tell?   Thanks for stopping by again today.  Perhaps YOU should come play along.

Blessings,
Karen

25 Days of Christmas Tags - This tag, as explained above, was inspired by the wonderful hostess of the event, Tracey McNeely on Day 12 for STAMPlorations.

Inspired Glittery Tag

Welcome back by, and get ready for another tag!  I'm finding SO much inspiration in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags that I can't even keep up any more.  I've planned out so many tags that have inspired me, and I've fallen days and days (and tags and tags) behind.  SO much to see every day that ideas will be spinning through your head 24/7 as they are for me.  I'm loving it all!
This tag was inspired by Shirley Bampton for STAMPlorations on Day 12 with her glittery tag.  I wasn't able to do what she did (it was stunning), but I made a pile of glitter at the bottom of my tag; and instead of a sheep, I used a coffee cup.  You see, we have so many coffee lovers in our family that I figured it would be a good thing to have lots of tags with coffee cups on them.  And...my only sheep stamp wouldn't fit.  SO....I may need to do some more shopping.  LOL  Thanks for the inspiration on this one, Shirley.  I'm sure having fun.

Blessings,
Karen

25 Days of Christmas Tags - I was inspired by Shirley Bampton for STAMPlorations on Day 12 for this tag; as explained above.  The glittery touches she added to her tag were amazing!



Fun Plaid Tag

Please, don't say it!  Please don't say..."another tag"?  Yes, another and another and another.  I'm being SO inspired by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags and I just can't stop!  There's so much to see each day, and you'll certainly never run out of ideas.  We all have to place tags on our Christmas gifts, so why not hand make them all this year and come play along.  It's absolutely a blast, and you'll find abounding inspiration day after day, tag after tag.
This tag was inspired by DT Member, Kim, of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags on Day 12 for Stamplorations.  Her tag was fairly simple, but it spoke to me.  She had a white tag, she added some fun orange gingham patterned paper at the top, and then had a lovely contrast with her shiny deer head silhouette.  I don't have quire what Kim used, but I put my own spin on it, and this is what I came up with from her inspiration.  I cut a white tag, added some pink gingham patterned paper (as opposed to Kim's orange), and die-cut a pink glittery snowflake (because I don't have a deer silhouette  die or stamp like Kim used).  I'm being creative with what I have on hand for now.  I hope that you're enjoying this special event.  Tracey and her Design Team sure do put a lot of work into it, and I know you'll have a lot of fun (and be super inspired) if you should choose to play along.  I encourage you to stop by!

Blessings,
Karen
