Happy 7th Birthday Paper Sweeties!

Hello!  Today I have a very special post to share with you in honor of Paper Sweeties 7th Birthday!

So I hope you will grab a hot beverage and join me for a while as I have several cards and some fun
Christmas tags to share today:

I am blessed to be an Alumni Designer for Debbie's wonderful company Paper Sweeties.  She invited me to share a post during her birthday month of August so I have been creating some projects to share with all of you!

First a special Birthday card featuring one of Debbie's original paper doll stamps Abigail and the coordinating sweet cut:

Abigail is colored with Copic markers and her outfit is paper pieced.  She is holding up the number 7 in honor of Paper Sweeties 7th Birthday!

I am so happy to be celebrating with everyone that loves Paper Sweeties so much!  Thanks Debbie for seven wonderful years of crafty goodness to share with all of my friends and family!

Next I played with the Sweet Cuts set:  "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee"  I love this sweet coffee or tea cup die set!  It is so fun to stack on a card front.  I used a ton of different sentiment sets including my current favorite the wonderful Merry Stamp Set.  Here are the cards I created:

 Faith, Hope, and Love!  The perfect card to send to a friend who needs some support!

The next two cards use the "Merry" stamp set too...but are Christmas themed:

This first one is in traditional colors....

And this next one is in shabby colors:

I love how quick these Christmas cards came together! 
I added some Diamond Stickles glitter glue to each of these Christmas cards though you cannot see it very well in the pictures!  They are so sparkly and beautiful in person!  

Next a more summery card....

This sweet "Bless Your Heart" sentiment is from the southern standards set called "Hey Y'all".

And here is one about kindness:

"Friendship begins with a cup of kindness" is from the "You Warm My Heart" stamp set. 

This fun sentiment comes from the "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Stamp Set".  The coordinating sweet cuts die set contains the mug or cup that I used on all of these cards. So fun!

And "Sending You a HUG in a MUG" is from the "But First Coffee stamp set".  Perfect for sending someone a "hug" through the mail!

Yay!  This wonderful group of cards is all ready to be boxed up and shared with a friend!

I also created some wonderful Christmas tags using this same mug (or tea cup) die and the wonderful "Merry" stamp set once again. 

Here are the tag bases all ready to be decorated! All the pretty colors and patterns just make me smile! The whip cream topping on each cup was created with the "Sweet Cuts Cupcakes and Sprinkles" die set.    I used two cupcake frosting die cuts on each mug.

Here is a sample of a finished tag for inspiration! 

The candy cane in the mug on this "I (heart) SNOW" tag is from the "Homemade with love" stamps and sweet cuts sets. The little ginger girl is from a RETIRED Paper Sweeties set and is no longer available for purchase in the store, however, Debbie's shop has many wonderful new holiday sets that will be fantastic for your Holiday projects!
