FMS498 and SPD Mix It Up #82

FMS498 and SPD Mix It Up #82 published on 8 Comments on FMS498 and SPD Mix It Up #82

Happy Wednesday! I am here today with a combo card that joins two of my challenges, Freshly Made Sketches and SugarPea Designs’ Mix It Up Challenge.

When I looked at the inspiration photo, I fell in love with the colors! And then I saw Jen Mitchell’s sketch and I knew just what to do. I pulled out the Meadow Motifs Stamp Set and chose two of the floral sprays. To match the sketch I put the smaller one in the bottom right corner on Desert Storm card stock. Then I pulled out some fall colored Copic Markers in yellows, oranges and browns.

I love how those colors change the entire feel of the images! And it made me so very happy. For a sentiment, I reached to the Floral Envie Stamp Set. This sentiment is really beautiful and I thought it provided just the right balance for the card. I hope you enjoy this combination and will come play along!

Last week I promised a sneak peek week from Honey Bee Stamps. Well, Covid strikes again and there was a delay in shipping the release to the company. In order to make sure customers were able to order, the peeks were delayed. But they are scheduled to start this Friday. I cannot wait to share! Until then, I hope you have some time to craft.

Hey Fall for SugarPea Designs

Hi everyone! Sharing this card that I created for the SugarPea Designs blog. I know we are still in the heat of summer but I thought I would look towards the cooler days of fall for today’s card.

I love the fun images from the Hey Fall Stamp Set and thought I’d just play with them and create a cute scene. I stamped them in Momento Tuxedo Black Ink on white card stock and colored with my Copic Markers. Using the coordinating SugarCut – Hey Fall dies, I cut them out and them started with the placement.

For the top panel, I cut out a rectangle with the SugarCut – Stitched Rectangles from white card stock. With the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil, I added some grass then just added the colored images. To frame the image panel, I used the SugarCut – Stitched Scalloped Rectangles. Finally, using the largest of the Stitched Rectangles for sizing, I created the base.

I hope you enjoy this little taste of cool weather and the pumpkins and scarves. Have a wonderful day! Don’t forget that the End of Summer Sale is running through tomorrow (August 4th). Click on the graphic below for my affiliate link to the sale.

Floral Hello for SugarPea Designs

Today I’m up on the SugarPea Designs company blog. I was looking through my underused products and thought I would re-visit the Floral Geo CoverPlate Die today. It is such a gorgeous design and I love that it has a great “stand alone” quality.

I cut the cover from a pretty teal card stock and then used the same color underneath. In order to make the texture stand out, I added a bit of ink to the base. It keeps the tone on tone look but with a bit more pop. And let’s face it, that die does ALL the work!

I pulled out the SugarCut – Hello die, another that I love but that has not gotten enough attention. This script really is just lovely! I used it with some iridescent glitter paper from my stash. In person, the sparkle is really pretty! To keep it clean, I just added on a few gems.

I hope you enjoy this card and will take it as inspiration to pull out of a few of your favorites too! Have a great day.

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! Finally it is Release Day! The release goes live on today July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

I am sharing one more project today and I hope you like my version of sunshine!

Using the Sunburst Stencil, I inked up a rainbow of Distress Ink colors. I love how easy it is to create this bold look! The off center design of the sunburst really inspired the rest of the card.

The Sunshine Sentiments and SugarCut – Sunshine Word die created the perfect combination. This message was exactly perfect for my rainbow of colors and one that I hope will inspire you.

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This summer release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing the final three new products: Waves of Love Stamp Set, SugarCut – Waves of Love and SugarCut – Nautical Notions.

This walrus from the Waves of Love sweet cannot help but bring a smile. I used the Nautical Notions life preserver to make a frame. I cut the basic shape and then used the little panel die on a wood patterned paper. I envisioned our walrus friend peeking up from the waves (also a die from Nautical Notions).

I loved the idea of this fellow trying to see what was up with the fish bucket. Of course he ignores the one right by him! There are lots of sentiments that go along with the nautical theme and you are sure to find them all just fabulous.

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This summer release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing three new products: Salty Seagulls Stamp Set, SugarCut – Salty Seagulls and the Sunburst Stencil.

I must say that I laughed so hard when I saw this set. I mean, the seagulls are genius! And the sentiments are hilarious. Using this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge by the lovely Cécile. I stamped the birds, the post and the fries and then colored with Copic Markers.

I chose an ombré piece of patterned paper for my background. I thought the soft blue gray was perfect for the sketch. Around my house I often tell the boys they are “salty dogs” when the teenage attitude shows up. In truth, they are such good boys so I think this will end up as a just because card for one of them.

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2 published on 26 Comments on SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 2

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This summer release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing three new products: SugarCut – Life is a Picnic, Sunshine Sentiments Stamp Set, SugarCut – Sunshine Word.

The starting point for me was this absolutely incredible Life is a Picnic die set. It is so well designed. I love die sets that make it easy to create layers and are not overly complicated. This is just that! Because the dies cut the separate layers, it is easy to color them in different inks and create dimension and detail. I cut the whole set out of Tim Holtz Distress White Heavystock paper. It is great for coloring with Distress Inks. Then I got to getting inky.

You can see how I was able to color the layers with different inks to create real looking items for the basket. Once I had all the pieces colored, I glued them together and thought about a “scene”. Using the Outdoor Scene Stencil for the grass and sky. You even get a little peek into a product that will be revealed tomorrow. For my sentiment, I used the new Sunshine word die and coordinating sentiment set. I hope you like my little summer scene and can’t wait to see what you think about the new products.

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week – Day 1

I am so happy to be here all week for the SugarPea Designs Summer Release Sweet Peek Week!! This spring release is full of fun products that are perfect for every stamper. And we have team hop, of course, to share inspiration. The release goes live on Friday, July 2nd at 2p Eastern.

Today we are sharing four new products: Captain Of My Heart Stamp Set, SugarCut – Captain Of My Heart, Pirate Treasure Map Stencil, and SugarCut – Ahoy.

I started with the Pirate Treasure Map Stencil. On white paper, I brushed on Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then using the stencil, I added details using more Distress Ink colors. I intentionally made a few of them messy and added some water splatters. Then I cut the map out and roughed up the edges a bit. Next up, I stamped images from the Captain Of My Heart set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

I had so much fun coloring them with Copic Markers and then cut them out with their coordinating dies. I inked up the base with a bit more Distress Ink and stamped on a sweet sentiment from the set. Love how well this combination works together.

Freshly Made Sketches #489

Freshly Made Sketches #489 published on 6 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #489

Today is a fun new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! I love what designer Linda Callahan has given us and I think there will be lots of ways to be creative with this one.

I was playing in the stamp room the other day and decided to pull out my Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks in Stream, Purple Twilight and Wild Plum plus Gold Mixative. I had this panel left over from another project and thought it might be perfect for today’s sketch. The bold colors with the gold really do all the work. I had made a larger panel to start. With a rectangle die, I cut out a part of the panel and then used another section for the sentiment, the Thanks SugarCut die from SugarPea Designs.

I wanted the sentiment to jump out a bit more, so I smooshed on some Versamark and added clear embossing powder to add some shine. I will say that this is one of those cards that is much prettier in person! To keep with the sketch, I added sequins in the proper placement choosing gold to accent the gold in the panel.

I hope you enjoy this card today and all the inspiration from the team at FMS! Come over and join the fun! Back on Friday with a new card.

Happy Birthday Script for SugarPea Designs

Happy Birthday Script for SugarPea Designs published on No Comments on Happy Birthday Script for SugarPea Designs

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m up today on the SugarPea Designs blog with this card. I realized that I was missing birthday cards in my stash, particularly gender neutral ones. So I decided to create one that I can make using different color combinations.

I loved this SugarCut – Happy Birthday Script as a starting place and built the card around it. Using white card stock, I inked on Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade. These seemed like the perfect summer color combination! After I did a basic application of ink, I used the Skinny Stripes Stencil and re-applied the colors. I love how the tone over tone inking makes for an easy yet detailed background. I inked the same colors on an extra piece of white paper and cut out the sentiment. To help the sentiment pop a bit against the background, I cut some vellum with the SugarCut – Stitched Rectangles and added the die to it.

I hope you like this card and all the color possibilities. A fun way to enjoy a day in the craft room making a whole series of birthday cards! Thanks for stopping in today. See you tomorrow for the latest from FMS.
