When I saw the flyer for Sweetie Pie a couple of weeks ago, I thought, “cute, cute, cute!”  The images are not my usual style — whatever that is.  Who knows, unless Crafting ADD is a style.  (Please don’t be offended.)  It’s just that I’m like a magpie – “oohh shiny” or the dog in “Up” — you know, “squirrel” and his head whips around.  That’s me!  I like that style….and that style…and oh yeah, that style too…..and are there any more ways to create?

Well, I showed the flyer to my daughter and she said, “Hey! that’s me when I was a little girl.  And so is that one, and that one and that one…”  She insisted the I/we needed “Sweetie Pie”.  Don’t tell her but, I was already sold before she  saw it.

Here’s my first creation with Sweetie Pie.  I’m sure there will be more as there are so many ideas swirling around in my head right now.

 

Sweetie Pie and Heartfelt Banner Kit by theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

 

So here’s what I did.  My base is Very Vanilla and I stamped the squiggly arrow from Sweetie Pie Frames in Versamark randomly around the front of the card.  Then, they were heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  (Yes, I’m on kind of an embossing kick the last few days.)  Next, I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry with the Banner Framelits and then ran it through the Big Shot in the Arrows embossing folder.  The spunky polka dotted banner is from the free Heartfelt Banner Kit that is available through the end of today (Sale-A-Bration’s last day).  The natural canvas banner is also from the Heartfelt Banner Kit.  I used Glue Dots to adhere a piece of Watercolor Wonder washi tape to the banner.  Using the Perfect Pennants die, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped my little girl from Sweetie Pie in Versamark.  She was heat embossed with Black embossing powder and then I stroked a Blender Pen across a Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write marker which enabled me to add a softer shade of  the same color to the headband.  The flowers on the headband were colored in with a Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write marker.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to adhere the Very Vanilla doily.  And finally, I added a small bow made from Gold Baker’s Twine and a clothespin accent from the Heartfelt Banner Kit.

I’ve used most of my Heartfelt Banner Kit supplies by now.  Though I haven’t made a single banner, I sure am glad I chose it.  Check out the links here and here to see a couple of other creations using this kit.
