Introducing Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe (Plus Sentiment Splits Day Four)

Hello and welcome to day 4 of the Papertrey Ink March countdown! 

Today's group post is focused on Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe and its coordinating products, designed by Betsy Veldman!  You're in for a sweet treat!  This collection is as sweet as can be.  Every detail has been so cleverly thought out and it's been a real treat to work with.

Check out what I've got for you today and be sure to hang in there until the end, I've got a couple new sneak peeks of my new Sentiment Splits collection too...
Here's a sweet package for you today!  
This colorful neighborhood was stamped using all four sides of today's featured sweet shoppe.
I accented this colorful block with a few stamped black accents.  Plus, the addition of a Sentiment Splits: Curve Horizontal die cut panel allowed me to stamp a Sweet Shoppe Sentiments sentiment in an unexpected way, just over the edge.
For my dome tag candied stripes was the theme I was going for.  This sheet of pattern paper, from the Watercolor Wonder paper pad, had the strips I was going for and the perfect color combo.
I wanted to be sure the this sweet sweets shoppe would fit tucked in closer to the edge of the dome.  So, I left off the taller store front (a separate piece) and fit the stripped shade at the top edge. It's a bit hard to see in the photo... but all the shop accessories were die cut from white shimmer cardstock.  It's so pretty in person! 

Now on to a few Sentiment Splits samples...
This one features both cuts from the Sentiment Splits: Angle Horizontal die. The larger size cut from pattern vellum and the smaller from white linen, which was stamped with this stunning floral from Brushed Blooms.  I played around with the arrangement and tweaked the angles a bit.  Kind of a funky layout, but I kind of like it!
Finished the card off with a couple buttons, a satin bow, and a Sentiment Splits sentiment.
This card was really hard to keep under wraps.  I love this one!  I took the Sentiment Splits: Angle Vertical... and flipped it. The sentiment is now at the top of the layout.  Not in the split, but above it!
Got a dot theme going on over here... dots in the butterflies, on the pattern paper, and the button is a dot itself. 

Well, that concludes today's look at Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe and Sentiment Splits. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th.  More details on these products can be found at the Papertrey Ink blog.
