Paper Sweeties Designer Feature

tracey_PSdetail


I am beyond thrilled to share that Debbie Marcinkiewicz of Paper Sweeties is doing a Designer Feature with me today on the Paper Sweeties blog. Debbie graciously sent me some of her fabulous stamps and dies to play with.  I will tell you that they stamp beautifully on the first impression. I love her hand drawn designs.

I had the March photo to use as my inspiration for my projects today.




For my first card I embossed images that I stamped onto crdstock and patterned paper with white embossing powder. I wish my camera could have captured the shine of the embossed lines and the shimmer of the Wink of Stella.

A closer look...

I used the Pretty Posies stamp set and Sweet Cuts, the Garden Time stamp set and Sweet Cuts as well as the Sending Springtime stamp set for this first card.  I added some of the new Spring Peeps Sequins and just a touch of Copic on the stem.

For my second card I used the Home Tweet Home stamp set, some Copic colouring and again added some Spring Peeps Sequins.

Thank you so much Debbie for doing this feature.
I loved playing with your stamps!
