Shabby Tea Time with the Paper Sweeties

Today is our second day of sneak peeks for the upcoming (tomorrow!) release of new Paper Sweeties stamps! I decided to combine my sample card today with the Shabby Tea Room's inspiration photo and requirement to use flowers and fabric/ribbon on our projects. Here is my card using the new Dream a Little Dream  set:

Here's a close up of the sentiment panel...I stamped the word 'princess', cut out each individual letter and matted it on a piece of Early Espresso card stock. I then mounted each square to the banner. I also punched out a mirror image of the 'Flowers & Flourish' border punch and add a big, chunky Zva Creative pearl to the middle:

The main floral design consists of a Zva Creative flower in the middle adorned with vaious paper, crochet  and fabric flowers, along with tulle accents and stamens. The patterned paper is from Maja Design's Ska vi ta en fika and this particular paper is called Pratstund. The banner was punched out of a piece of Havrerutor -(bs) using Verve's Pennant Trim die from A Cut Above dies. 

Here is the Shabby Tea Room's inspiration photo:

Here are the other Paper Sweeties' Design Team have to go see what they are peeking today:

I'll be back tomorrow for with another card using some Paper Sweeties' stamps as inspiration!

  4. I don't usually make my comments out loud (especially when I'm home alone!) but this lovely card caught me off guard and I did an "Oh, my goodness,what a gorgeous card!" before I could stop myself. I shamefacedly looked around and sure enough... nobody here but me... thank goodness!! Your cards never disappoint... this one is especially wonderful. Couldn't even tell you"why"... it just made my heart go zing!

  5. Definately fit for a princess!! Love the selection of flowers you've used and all the lovely detail you've added. TFS.
