Let the Paper Sweeties March *new* stamp peeks begin!

 Hello crafty friends and welcome to Day #1 of the Paper Sweeties March *NEW* Stamp Design Team peeks!  I'm so happy to be here sharing a little bit of what I love to do with you!!  I love, love ... LOVE spring -- I'm NOT a winter person!  I adore living in the south where the weather is mild in the winter and warm and sunny in the summer!

I really enjoy creating with fun, bright and cheery colors -- and spring is the perfect time to showcase this beautiful color palette!  For today's project, I created a sweet Easter party set -- place card markers using the Sweeties dolls dressed in their Easter Sunday best, sweet mini tin pails filled with chocolate candies and adorned with whimsical pinwheels and the cutest little napkin rings!

I stamped Abigail and then dressed her in a *new* outfit from the Jelly Bean Time stamp set - complete with a pretty dress, bonnet and ballet slippers.  I created the name place card using the *new* Fancy Monograms stamp set.  I stamped the Easter egg image from Jelly Bean Time and adhered it onto a piece of patterned paper -- then wrapped into a napkin ring!

These little name place cards would be darling for a little girl's birthday party ... or a tea party with your girlfriends!!

I covered a mini tin pail with patterned paper and trim and filled it with pretty Easter paper fill and then added chocolate candies - yum!  I created a paper pinwheel and adhered it to a cake pop stick and then stamped a sentiment from Jelly Bean Time and tied the tag onto the stick with baker's twine. 

A closeup of the name place card ... embossed with polka dots!!

Here is Jake dressed in his outfit from the *new* Hippity Hoppity stamp set!  I dressed my sons for holidays exactly like this when they were little boys - dress shirt, sweater vest, long short, knee socks and saddle shoes - cute!!

I covered another mini tin pail and decorated -- created a tag stamped using the Hippity Hoppity stamp set!

This set was so much FUN to create!!  It makes me smile ... how about you??
