Paper Sweeties October Release Sneak Peeks

Hooray!  It is time for sneak peeks of the October Release for Paper Sweeties.  Oh my goodness do we have a lot of wonderful Holiday and Winter inspiration for you this month!  I have been so inspired by all of the wonderful new products!  I wish I could just play with them all day long!  The sneak peeks the Design Team is sharing today are for products that will be in the Paper Sweeties shop on October 15th!  

Here is a list of the new sets being released:

 NOTE:  You can see the sets in their entirety on the Paper Sweeties blog at 12:00am on October 15th!

I have a lot to share so I hope you have tea or coffee!  Seriously!  LOL!

The first card I am sharing with you is a showcase of two new stamp sets being released: "Do You See What I see" and "The Reason for the Season"  They are boutique outfit sets for the Paper Sweeties dolls to represent Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus and I just love how sweet they are!  They also have lots of wonderful sentiments and additional stamps.  I love both of these sets so much! 

I paper pieced the outfits onto the sweeties dolls Abigail and Jake which I had already colored with my Copic Markers.  Then I created a round scalloped card to place them on.  I embossed a sun-ray pattern onto some water color card stock and then added a clear embossed coat to make the background shine.  I wanted it to seem like the star was shining down on all of them. I love the way this turned out!  It is gorgeous in real life!  The sentiment "The Greatest Gift"  is from the new stamp set "Do You See What I See" and is embossed in gold embossing powder. And I finished the card with a thin line of Mercury Glass Stickles around the outside to add some sparkle. 

 Now let's shift to the new "Stitched Tags #2" stamps and sweet cuts dies:

This coordinating set of stamps and sweet cuts dies consists of a mitten, a tree, and a sweet little bow.  The mitten and tree have a lovely stitched detail and the bow is so adorable!  The picture above has the bow as a tree topper on each of the tags! Totally sweet! 

To create these tags I die cut the tree die twice - once from white card stock and once from a green polka dot patterned paper.  Then I used the heart tag die from the "Beautiful Little Wishes" sweet cuts to cut a heart-shaped window or aperture in the green paper tree die cut. ( I also used a snowflake die from the "Snow Friends" sweet cuts to create a snowflake aperture or window in some of the tags.)  I glued the two tree die cuts together and then stamped a sentiment in the opening in red ink.  A coating of glue around the heart/snowflake apertures and some pretty glitter creates lots of sparkle!   The sentiments I used are from the new "Stand Add-on Manger" stamp set.

 Here is another set of tree tags using some green gingham patterned paper and bright red jingle bells for the tree toppers. I love the sweet sound of the jingle bells!

And here is what I did with the leftover heart and snowflake die cuts from the window opening in each of the tree tags: 

I used them to create these tiny little tags for sweet little Christmas gifts.

I also added in some of the tiny regular tag and circle tag shapes from the "Beautiful Little Wishes" die cuts.  I now have a whole set of these tiny tags and they are so cute!

Are you feeling all of those JOY's???  Joy! Joy! Joy!!!!!

And a few more styles of the tree tags:
These tags are made from a recycled java jacket...I love all that texture!

And these are a set of tree tags in some earth tones of taupe, brown, and white!  This color combo looks so great on brown paper packages tied up with string!  :)

If you made it to here - thanks for sticking with me!  I went a little tag crazy over the last few weeks! 

I now get to send you off to visit the rest of the wonderfully creative Paper Sweeties Designers!  These ladies are AMAZING!:
