A new SWEET Challenge

Hello crafters!

I'm so happy to be here posting about Sweet Stamp Shops first weekly challenge! The very first challenge is paper piecing! Are these stamps perfect for this or what?!

Even if you haven't gotten your sweet tooth yet, no worries, you an still play along :) Using Sweet Stamp Shop stamps isn't a requirement although I don't know why you wouldn't?! They are so stinking cute :) Okay, ready for some SWEET paper piecing? Me too!

I used pattern paper! 3 different kinds! Shut up! I know, yay :) So first I took the little petal from happy bugs and stamped and masked like a mad woman. I think it was totally worth it though because I {heart} that flower. The leaves came from Melvin and Vernie. I really wanted the center to shine so I used black enamel accents. The wood panel and the flower pattern are from My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline, Howdy Doody collection. Those adorable diagonal stripes are from Echo Park's Dots and Stripes (cannot get enough of this paper pad. MUST. BUY. MORE.!) I stamped my sentiment on a little banner and adhered it with dimensional adhesive. 

Want to know a secret?! Just between us crafters . . .there may be one or two extra special (free) goodies being shared on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog. Also the prizes for playing along are simply fabulous! Maybe you should head over an check it out hmmm? Added bonus, there is some awesome inspiration from my fellow DT members. 

Thanks for stopping by :)
