Paper Sweeties & Coffee Lovers

Welcome by!  One thing that Paper Sweeties has in common with the vast majority of the crafting community is our deep LOVE of all things coffee, tea, and crafty sweetness.  With that in mind, we're teaming up with some of our friends over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog to celebrate with a special Blog Hop.  There will be prizes and LOTS of fabulous inspiration; so be sure to hop along for your chance to win and to be inspired.
Paper Sweeties carries so many cute coffee-themed stamps and dies (sweet cuts as we like to call them) to help you make ADORABLE cards and projects for all the fun coffee hops and challenges, and...of course, to give to all your coffee-loving friends.  For my first card, I used the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Stamp Set for the coffee mug, steam and sentiment.  I used the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Sweet Cuts for the cup and the steam.  I also used some sweet Cotton Candy Seam Binding and a few Marshmallow Sequins and a Blueberry Sequin. I used Crate Paper navy and pink patterned papers and a navy journalling sticker, and used the ColorBox Coal Ink Pad.
My second project is a sweet Christmas card that I made using some non-traditional colors from a GORGEOUS line of papers by Prima called Santa Baby.  The small touches of red make it work somehow, right?  I used a darling Christmas stamp set from Paper Sweeties called Homemade With Love, and this is such a DELICIOUS set.  Using it, I stamped the cupcake onto a white cardstock base and cut it out with the coordinating Homemade With Love Sweet Cuts, and then stamped parts of it again onto the Christmas patterned papers.

I outlined the cupcake with chunky pink glitter, and I stamped the cute peppermint sticks and die-cut them as well using this same sweet set from Paper Sweeties.  The coffee cup was cut from dictionary paper using the Keep Calm & Drink Coffee Sweet Cuts, and the steam is from the Keep Calm & Drink Coffee Stamp Set.  I also tied in some Bubblegum Seam Binding and Watermelon Seam Binding into this extra sweet card, and tucked in the small tag from the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts.  And yes....I realize I used A LOT of Paper Sweeties' products on this card, but what can I say?  Paper Sweeties just has SO many adorable products that you end up always wanting to use them all.
Here's the complete list of all those participating in this special blog hop.  We hope that you'll stop by each blog to check out all the amazing inspiration and to comment on each so that you'll be eligible for the fabulous prize.  There's A LOT going on this month at Paper Sweeties (in addition to this fun Blog Hop) including daily inspiration by some truly amazing Guest Designers on the Paper Sweeties Blog, a $100 give-away, 50% off our dolls, doll cuts and doll outfit stamp sets, and our upcoming New Release 3-Day event (August 14-16).  So, don't forget to stop by often.

Blessings to you,
