Basket Add-Ons Thinking of You by Paper Sweeties

Hi all, today I'm sharing a card that I made just for myself.  I needed a little crafty time this morning and I couldn't wait to use some new-to-me products by a company called Paper Sweeties. Have you heard of them?

I was recently inspired by a project made by Larissa Heskett, one of my teamies on the Newton's Nook Designs Team!  She also happens to design for Paper Sweeties and when I saw this card she made, I instantly went shopping!  So I'll share her card with you here (below), along with a link to her blog, and you can see where I got my inspiration!

So I went with the same type of black cup using PS Sweet Cuts Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Die.  Larissa used her roses from Basket Add-Ons Thinking of You as a base for the cup, which I LOVED, but I ended up filling my cup with them and liked that look as well!

I also added my little Hello sign and a heart that came in the Sweet Cuts Truck Add on Life is an Adventure Die Set

I used a stencil from Taylored Expressions called Blooming Beautiful  adding some ink to my background using Tea Dye Distress Ink over Kraft cardstock.

So as you can see, it's not a duplicated project, but I wanted to give credit for the inspiration.  I think it's great to borrow great ideas and then use what we have in our own craft rooms to create something wonderful!

Thank you so much for stopping by, if you're in the US, please enjoy this Memorial Day weekend. Remembering those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
