Hello Crafters! 

Today is the day! Are you ready for our first Sweet Stamp shop weekly challenge?! It's Kelly here to introduce you to it :) I cannot even tell you guys how excited we are to be sharing this with you! So without further ado the first weekly challenge is  . . . .drum roll please . . .  

Paper Piecing! 
Sweet Stamp Shop stamps are perfect for so many things but oh to paper piece them :) Makes me happy! I would like to note that you DO NOT have to use Sweet Stamp Shop stamps in order to play along. we understand everyone has a different stash and sometimes a certain stamp is just *perfect* for the challenge. However we would love to see what you create with our stamps too :) You don't currently own any Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps?! *Shock and Awe* there may be a way for you to get one *wink* keep scrolling*

Are you ready to see some SWEET projects from the design team? I sure am!

Let's start with the super sweet illustrator herself, Nicole! Using Sweet Tart and Packaged Pretty 

The fabulous Misty using The 'Core' of It 

The amazing Jamie using Sweet Tart 

Little old me, Kelly, using Happy Bugs, Furry Friend Forever, and Melvin and Vernie 

Lastly, we have the fantastic Michelle using Sweet Tart

Besides her gorgeous inspiration project Michelle did something else amazing for you guys! She turned that digital stamp into a cut file! I know, right?! How super awesome is she? You can download the cut file from Michelle's personal blog. Thanks for being so SWEET Michelle!

Hi Everyone! 

Ellen here with a little altered project for you today using the fun new Mermaid Stamp set called Under the Sea.

This is such a great set and can be used for a variety of projects. When I saw the seaweed,  I instantly thought of making my own flower.

I stamped the image in a variety of colors and then cut them out. Then I layered them and added a button and bow. 

Isn't that candle just gorgeous! and how creative is she? Seaweed flower? Completely beautiful! I hope you guys have been super inspired and will help us kick start this weekly challenge off fabulously! Don't forget to head over to the flickr group to upload your projects!

Hope you have a SWEET day!
