Paper Sweeties 6th Birthday!


Hi!  Paper Sweeties is 6!  Thank you, Debbie, for asking me to join your celebration.  I had so much fun creating my projects!  (Check out the video below for the mini cupcake cards.)



To celebrate being six, Paper Sweeties has a Challenge contest running through 11:59 pm EST on August 31st. The lucky winner will receive a $100 shopping spree at Paper Sweeties! Gallery viewers will vote by 'liking' their favorite projects and choosing the winner.  To link up your new celebration/birthday inspired projects, click here: Paper Sweeties.  The winner will be announced September 1st.


Paper Sweeties even has an inspiration photo for you:


Pretty color combination!


My first project is this sweetie pie dog - isn't he cute?  I love the little heart shape at his tail!



He's simply colored - just one copic (except for his cheeks).  I randomly added colored areas to get that spotted look.  I also really love the slightly wonky scallop frame - one of my new favorites!



You can see I made use of the rectangle (slightly wonky) scallop frame for these mini cupcake cards - aren't they sweet?  The watercolor is so simple and I'm really liking the monochromatic theme.  At first, I wasn't sure that there was enough contrast between the cupcakes and the background, but then I felt like they were so soft and pretty.

Here's the video on the mini watercolor cupcake cards:



Don't forget to link up for a chance on that $100 shopping spree at Paper Sweeties!  So glad you stopped by to celebrate Paper Sweeties turning six!
