SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 4

SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 4 published on 33 Comments on SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 4

Today is the last day of sneak peeks for the Winter Release from SugarPea Designs. The release goes live today (Friday) at 2p Eastern and I cannot wait. Make sure you take your chance at the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of the post.

So, let’s be real, if my calico kitty was in charge of the world, this would be every day. I love this Let’s Stay In Bed stamp set and the opportunity to scene build again. There are dies to match but I did a bit of masking for this.

It was fun to create the room and a place for the kitty to nap. And my calico was my muse (in fairness to my gray tuxedo she simply matched better). I did a bit of watercoloring and then cut the scene with the new Stitched Rectangles SugarCut Dies.

SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 3

SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 3 published on 32 Comments on SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 3

Today is a busy day on the blog! First up, I get to share Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Winter Release sneak peek! Given that it is Wednesday, I have combined it with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge with a fabulous sketch by the lovely Kim Singdahlsen. The SugarPea Designs release goes live on Friday, January 22nd at 2p and make sure you check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of this post.

One of today’s products is a beautiful stamp set called Friendship Blooms (with a coordinating SugarCut die set). The flowers in this set are spectacular. You will see them from me. A lot!! For today, though, I wanted to focus on the simplicity of one gorgeous image. I know that when we craft, we have a tendency to think more is more. Anyone who has been with me for a bit knows that I’m a bit of a minimalist. I do envy those who can put together layers of gorgeousness but for me, this is how I roll. And this stamp set allows me to do just that without feeling like I have missed something.

When I created this card, I needed a number of sympathy cards. The last year has taken such a toll on so many families and our friends are not exempt. I felt like this beautiful clean sketch combined with one pretty flower was perfect for what I needed. In truth, I colored a number of the flowers and created a few versions. But some of the cards needed to go out quickly so I only have this one photographed. The sentiment comes from a favorite of mine, Everyday Sentiments, but the sentiments from the set would be lovely on the same card. The rest of the products for today are equally awesome and I’ll be showing them to you in the upcoming weeks (and I’m sure the hop will inspire you too).

SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 2

Welcome back for day 2 of the SugarPea Designs Winter Release sneak peeks. All the products shared this week will be available on Friday, January 22nd at 2p Eastern. And make sure you check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of the post.

Today’s project is a combination of all of the daily peek products! I cannot even get over how clever and creative this phone is. Every element of the Vintage Phone SugarCut is so well considered and super easy to use! To create it, I brushed on Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink onto white card stock and them just started cutting. The phone, the letters from the Hello Word SugarCut were all in one run through! I did the same with some of the gray pieces which is just Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The little numbers in the phone are from the Call Me Stamp Set and work with both the its set and the Vintage Phone dies. So smart! I added the new Chevron Cover Plate in the background for some neutral texture. I cannot wait to hear what you think about this one!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release Day 1

Welcome to Release Week for SugarPea Designs’ Winter Release! I’m so happy to be sharing all the amazing products that will be available on Friday, January 22nd at 2p. And make sure to check out the GIVEAWAY at the bottom of the post.

I chose to play with the new Sweet Swans Stamp Set and SugarCut Dies. This set is just so, well, sweet! The images are perfect for creating scenes. I just love the potential on this. I stamped a group of the images and then cut some out using the coordinating SugarCut dies. I used a bit of watercoloring using Distress Inks. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and I thought this would be fun as a card for a family member who is going to be having her third child.

A quick share today for a project I created for a feature over at the SugarPea Designs. I wanted to make a card that felt like a bit of winter but with a nod to spring coming.

I started with the SugarCut – Birch Forest die. I love this die and thought a bit of coloring on it would be fun to try. So I cut it out of white card stock and then did a bit of Copic coloring. I kept it a bit watercolor-ish and tried not to over think it. I used some spring greens along with warm greys to get the feel of birch trees in spring. To keep the focus on the die, I used some kraft card stock for the base. The sentiment comes from the Floral Envie Stamp Set and I love the combination of fonts. I thought it needed something else and finally settled on some twine.

I hope you enjoy this card. I had such fun playing around with this fabulous die and I hope you’ll give it a try too! Thanks so much for stopping in today. See you again soon.

Two posts today and this is the first one! I’m sharing my inspiration card for this month’s Mix It Up Challenge from SugarPea Designs. I love the sweet photo and color combination. The sketch is awesome too!

I chose to make this just a winter themed card using the colors and (mostly) the sketch. My favorite little snowflakes are the star of the show. Flurry of Warm Wishes has such delicate images and they were perfect to showcase. I stamped them on kraft card stock using Versamark ink. I inked up some card stock with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink and stamped on one of the flakes in Espresso ink. A quick cut with a circle die and I had a focal point. My go-to sentiment set, Everyday Sentiments, had just the right choice, of course. I stamped it in Espresso too in order for it to stand out a bit more. I loved the burlap in the image so I thought it would be a nice textural touch on the card. Finally I added a few red sequins.

I hope you enjoy this sweet card as inspiration! You can still join the challenge for a chance to win! See you in a bit for another card.

Peace and Joy

Hi everyone! I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog today with a Christmas card using products in a whole different way than intended!

I pulled out the SugarCut – Piece of Cake dies again to create this Christmas tree cut out. I simply cut the triangle first, then put the banner in place to create the trunk. Super easy way to multi-purpose your dies. I debated a few options to fill the tree but ultimately decided that a shaker was the best. I mean, who doesn’t love a shaker card?!

I put down acetate under the tree cutout to start. Then I lined foam tape around the tree and filled with sequins from my stash. I placed a panel of the same card stock as the base over the whole thing to create a self-contained shaker. For me this is easier than trying to build it onto the base itself. I attached the entire thing to the base with Tombow Glue to make sure it really held (since it is a bit heavy). I stamped the sentiment from Flurry of Warm Wishes in gray ink and added that panel to the card.

I hope you enjoy this inspiration today. I think I’ll be making some more of these. Maybe with some glitter paper to fill the tree instead. Thanks for stopping in today. See you again soon!

Hello Friend for SPD and FMS

I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog today playing with the Mix It Up Challenge #73 and I combined it with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. The sketch from Karren really opened up lots of options and I knew just what I wanted to do.

I thought the colors were perfect for a little fall wreath so I created one using the lovely elements from the SugarCut – Open Book dies. A bit of twine created the wreath.

To make the sketch panel feature, I used the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil and sponged on Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Books Stamp Set.

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you’ll join me for both of these fun challenges. Have a wonderful day!

Sending You Joy for SugarPea Designs

Sending You Joy for SugarPea Designs published on No Comments on Sending You Joy for SugarPea Designs

I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog today with a Design Team Feature project. It is time for me to start getting serious about holiday cards and that was my inspiration for today’s project.

I decided to combine a variety of snow themed products for this card. Starting with using the Falling Snow Stencil as an embossing folder, I ran it through my Gemini Jr adding texture to white card stock.

Then I left the stencil in place and brushed on Distress Ink in a ombré set of blue colors. While I was at it, I inked up some more white paper to use with die cuts. The SugarCut – Snowflake Tag and the SugarCut – Joy Word were cut on this sheet. And then I stamped the “Sending you” from the Flurry of Warm Wishes Stamp Set on the same sheet to finish the sentiment.

Hop over to the blog to see daily inspiration or visit the shop to find all these products. Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!

Freshly Made Sketches #458

Freshly Made Sketches #458 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #458

Another week has flown by and I’m busy getting used to combining flying and stamping again. But I have a quick card for you using the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Our wonderful Kim Singdahlsen has created a unique and fun sketch.

I kept it pretty straight to the sketch and tried to just focus on the shimmer and shine of glitter paper. The fabulous sentiment die is the Happy Word SugarCut and I used its coordinating stamp set, Happy Thoughts.

The background texture is an old Stampin’ Up embossing folder.

I hope you will enjoy playing along with us this week. Lots of fabulous inspiration from the team, as always. Thanks for stopping in. See you soon!
