First look at the NEW StickerKitten Sweet Pastels range

Hi crafters! In this blog post I want to give you all a first look at our beautiful, brand new Sweet Pastels craft range which will be released on 1st April 2019! Right now we have our Summer Collection 2019 craft box available to order which contains all of the Sweet Pastels range plus loads more goodies. The next few ranges – Tropical Brights, Seaside Dreams and Pretty Stitches – will then be released individually over the summer. I’ll have more to share about those ranges over the next few months, but for now have a look at these gorgeous new goodies!

The Sweet Pastels range features a 6×6 paper pack, Sweetie Jars stamp set, Sweet Shop stamp set and two packs of wooden embellishments – one with lollipops and sweets, one with mini sweets and jars.

The paper pack includes pretty designs in an array of pastel colours! These make great backgrounds for cards where you are showcasing stamped images and are perfect for little 3D projects.

The little sweets are sized perfectly to fit in the jars, and the jars sit upon the shelf. You have lots of different sentiments to choose from across the two packs. You might even recognise those little gummy dinos…!

How cute are these little shops?? In this set you get a sweet shop, a little bakery and a cosy cottage. Ideal for birthday treats or new home cards. You can stamp the little bistro set next to each of them too, and there are bushes and tufts of grass to complete your scene.

The mini sweets are designed to fit inside the jars. You can have lots of fun painting these and using mixed media techniques to bring your little sweet shop project to life!

The lollipop embellishments also come with the swirls included in the pack. You can paint or ink up the swirls in different colours and pop them back inside the lollies for a colourful combination.

Stamp the lollies across the page and then use the solid background stamp to add pops of colour!

Here I’ve used bright lemon, grapefruit and purple coloured inks to create a pretty birthday card. You can stamp the sweets designs edge to edge to create a jar full of goodies! This one is full of little lemon sherbet pips. Yummy!

Sentiments in this stamp set include ‘wishing you a day filled with sweets and treats’, ‘you’re the sweetest’, ‘happy birthday’ and ‘thanks’.

All our stamps are made of photopolymer so they stamp really crisply.

The designs look really pretty stamped in black ink and coloured with alcohol markers. Try a very pale blue for the glass jars.

For this card I’ve left the stamped sweet shop uncoloured so that it stands out in black and white against the pastel papers.

The ‘for someone sweet’ sentiment fits perfectly above the awning of the Marshmallow Bakery. Wouldn’t these make sweet little tags?

We’ve also included a little thatched cottage stamp in the set to give you more versatility – you can have fun making welcome and new home cards. Colour the little cottages however you wish, and add some more trees, bushes and tufts of grass outside and sunshine above!

All of our stamp designs are sketched out by me and then the artwork is done by James. We design all the stamps really carefully to work well together, and love adding little details like all the sweetie jars lined up in the window here.

Shimmery Stencilling

Hello,

It is Sarah G from the DT here to share an idea for using stencils in your cardmaking.  I love working with stencils and the Scallop Pattern stencil from Sticker Kitten works beautifully with the Mermaid Treasures range!  I decided to create a shimmery background to suit my underwater scene.

 

I went over the stencil with Imagination Crafts Sparkle Paste in blues and greens to create a variegated look and set aside to dry.

I thought that the background would look too busy and decided to create some apertures for it to show through.  I die cut several circles from a square of cardstock and stencilled over that with my bubbles stencil in Tumbled Glass distress oxide.  I stamped the sentiment and sea weed on the panel and added mdf elements that had been painted with sparkle paint and jellyfish which had been stamped on to Mermaid Treasures patterned paper.

All of this was popped over the stencilled background on foam tape which adds further dimension to the scene.

Stencils are a great way to add texture and create backgrounds for your designs!
