Noel for SugarPea Designs

Noel for SugarPea Designs published on 1 Comment on Noel for SugarPea Designs

I’m over at the SugarPea Designs company blog today with some monthly inspiration. Over the next few weeks, you will see that I’m in full holiday mode and this card shows that.

I thought it would be fun to create my own sentiment with a block alphabet die set and just add details. To get started, I took some blue card stock and then inked on a little bit of Distress Ink for a little more shading. Then, using the Falling Snow Stencil, I added some Picket Fence Paper Glitz. Suffice it to say that none of my pictures come close to showing you the shimmer and shine. While I had the Paper Glitz out, I also applied some to a plain piece of white card stock. Just a thin layer!

Once the white panel was dry, I simply cut the word Noel using the Block Alphabet SugarCut dies and the snowflakes from the Snowflake Tag SugarCut dies. More shimmer and shine! For the letters, I cut two more of the blue card stock so I could give it a bit more dimension. A bit of foam tape under the snowflakes too. And that’s it. Easy to do in an assembly line too if you like making more than one of a design.

Thanks for stopping in. Glad to see you today. Hope your day is great!

SugarPea Designs has designed the Everyday Home Stamp Set with coordinating dies for this exclusive release. And when I say exclusive, I’m not kidding. This will fly out the door and once it is gone, it is gone. Shop early and shop fast!

For my affiliate link to shop at no cost to you: EVERYDAY HOME STAMP SET AND DIES

This pretty set is just wonderful for making sweet scenes. I designed an entry, complete with shiplap, that would make anyone feel welcome. I stamped the images using Versafine Clair on Bristol Smooth paper and then colored with Zig Markers. I did not have the dies (but there are coordinating dies!) so I fussy cut the elements.

To add a bit more fun to the scene, I also included some images from a sister set called Let’s Stay Home. Knowing that these Stamptember sets go quickly, I wanted you to know about a similar one that is readily available. For the shiplap, I just cut the card stock into strips and glued it down to my base where I had already colored the floor section. Easy to do and it adds such fun detail.

Ok, that is it for today! Thanks so much for stopping in. I have my affiliate links below (at no cost to you) and I would love it if you considered shopping with me. Have a wonderful Saturday!

SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat – Fall Release

SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat – Fall Release published on 1 Comment on SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat – Fall Release

Hi everyone! We have a fun hop over on Instagram with the SugarPea Designs team. Chances to win too! A quick share here for those who do not do Instagram.

I chose to focus on an element again using the Always Welcome Stamp Set from the new release. I stamped three of them in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. They were cut out using the Card Front Element 3 SugarCut Dies.

I used some corrugated kraft from my stash as a backer to make the wreaths pop more. For the chalkboard look, I sponged on some white ink and then added splatters with Hero Arts Iridescent Shimmer Spray. For a pop of color, I pulled out some red grosgrain ribbons and red jewels.

I hope you enjoy this fresh look at the stamp set. Make sure you come over to hop with us! As a note, I will be back at midnight for a special surprise post! It won’t show up in your email until tomorrow evening but you may want to take a look at the blog in the morning.

Today I get to share a combination card joining two of my favorite challenges! I started with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and use the inspiration from SugarPea Designs’ Mix It Up Challenge. So fun!

Using the Autumn Background stamp set, I stamped in Versamark Ink and then heat embossed in Gold Rich from Wow on Dark Chocolate card stock. Something about the gold on the dark brown is so pretty and a bit unexpected. This was the color from the inspiration that really drew me in!

In keeping with the sketch layers, I used some gold twine from my stash for the crossing panel. In truth, I first added more layers but then just could not cover up all the pretty detail of the background. Instead, I just chose the SugarCut – Thanks Word die and cut the top piece from gold card stock and the bottom from more Dark Chocolate. I pulled a few gold sequins from my stash to add even more shine.

Thanks for stopping by today! Back on Friday with more fun! See you then.

Today’s new products: Basic Bookmark SugarCut Dies, Book Club Stamp Set and Book Words with Shelf SugarCut Dies

While I definitely love the bookmark part of the die set, I love the option to not use that and to have a cute card with all the fun elements. I really enjoyed building my books and added the greenery to the shelf. All I did was cut them all (except the shelf) from white paper and colored the appropriate pieces with Copic Markers. Easy peasy.

I turned the glasses into tortoise shell glasses (because I have some) just for fun. I love this sentiment and all the other choices too.

How can anyone resist all the coffee products with the little faces? Oh my word, these are cute!

Then I chose a sentiment from the stamp and die group that I just love.

Let’s face it…adulting is hard and coffee helps! I hope you love this adorable group as much as I do.

I am so excited to be here for day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Fall Release Sweet Peek Week.

Today we are sharing the Shut the Front Door SugarCut Die.

Shut the Front Door, indeed! This die is so well designed and has so many options. You can customize all the elements. I used a wood grain paper from my stash to create the basis of my door and then decided to make it a holiday scene. And get this…the door opens!! Let me show you.

Super fun, don’t you think?! I put the door on a mini slimline card and it is perfectly sized for that. If you want to add the other elements from the die set, a standard card will be great.

I am so excited to be here for day 2 of the SugarPea Designs Fall Release Sweet Peek Week.

Today’s new products: Little Village Stamp Set and SugarCut Dies, Home Is With You Stamp Set and SugarCut – Home Script Word Die

The Little Village set might be one of the most fun scene builders I have used. There are separate stamps for the parts of the houses and trees so you can ink different colors. And they line up really easily! It mades for such cute cards with no stress. I chose bright happy colors for my little neighborhood.

After stamping the pieces, I thought it best to keep it clean (big surprise, I know). I added a sentiment from the set and they put the scene on some of the stitched basics to create a frame.

I am so excited to be here for day 1 of the SugarPea Designs Fall Release Sweet Peek Week.

Today we are sharing two new products: Always Welcome Stamp Set and Always Welcome SugarCut Dies

The Always Welcome set is a wonderful new scene building set with fabulous elements. I chose to focus just on the tree for today’s card. I think you can agree that it is great in every color! I was inspired to make a non-traditional Christmas card and I just love the results with this rainbow of trees.

I stamped the trees and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I thought they fit perfectly on a mini slimline card so I lined them up and attached them. The sentiment comes from my long time favorite Everyday Sentiments.

Autumn Blessings

Autumn Blessings published on 1 Comment on Autumn Blessings

We are approaching the days where the nights are getting cooler here in Virginia and my stamping turns to fall colors. I pulled out my muted yellows and browns for today’s card that is created for the SugarPea Designs blog.

Many times when I make cards, I have an idea of the finished project in my head. This was not that card. I just wanted to play with texture and followed along where the card took me. It all started with the Leaf Canopy Stencil. I used textured embossing paste through the stencil and then left a space open for a sentiment. Once the paste was dry, I blended on Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint and then added a bit of Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I splattered on some water and then some simmer spray for a bit of detail.

I thought this gorgeous sentiment from the Autumn Blessing Stamp Set was perfect for the open space. I stamped it in brown ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to help it pop a bit more. Still wasn’t looking finished so I cut some leaf sprigs with the SugarCut – Botanical Branches dies out of brown card stock. I added a bit of brown twine to finish it.

I hope you enjoy this taste of fall and are inspired to just sit down and create, letting the process take you along. Have a wonderful day!
