The Card Concept #63

11-30-16

Hi again crafty friends 🙂 It’s time for a new challenge at The Card Concept! This will be my last challenge with The Card Concept,  I’ve been on the DT since the challenge began, and I have truly enjoyed the time I’ve spent on the design team with such a great group of crafters! Since beginning my new job in March I have been struggling to fit in everything in my crafty world and spend quality time with my family as well. With that said, it’s time to take a break and let someone else be a clean & layered designer for a while 🙂

Check out this week’s inspiration:

I took my inspiration from the photo, and especially the fabric on the armchair! Let’s see what the rest of the team has come up with:

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #25

11-30-16

Hey there 🙂 It’s time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs and I just looooove the colors in today’s inspiration:

25

There’s something about non-traditional holiday colors that just work for me 🙂 I chose to use both the inspiration photo and sketch, but you can do either or both! For my card I used the O Christmas Tree and Season’s Greetings stamp sets, along with the Happy Holidays Patterned Paper Collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join us this week 🙂

Hi stamping friends 🙂 Wow, it’s the day before Thanksgiving already! Before you know it we’ll be mailing out holiday cards, so why not get started on them with some inspiration from this week’s Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs?!?

24-1

For my card I made a shaker using the Beautiful Bauble SugarCut, along with the O Christmas Tree stamp set. I love a little extra sparkle, don’t you?! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you’ve got time to get crafty we’d love for you to join us this week!

Lately I’ve been using some non-holiday sets to create Holiday projects, and today is no different. I used the Special Delivery set along with the Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts. I added a little bit of holiday color to my envelopes using Copic markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join us this week, we love to see what you create! Plus, don’t forget there’s a monthly prize up for grabs!!

 

25 Days of Christmas Tags

11-10-16

Hi there 🙂 I’m so excited to be joining the fun for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags that Tracey hosts! SugarPea Designs is a sponsor today and I couldn’t resist playing along! I went for a non-Christmas Christmas tag…haha does that even make sense? I had the idea to create a jar of cookie ingredients and make a tag to go along with it using the adorable Whisky Business set. I have to say, I wish my jar looked as neat as some of the perfectly layered jars you see on Pinterest! To do that I recommend you don’t tip your jar sideways to tie your bow like I did lol!!! My tag base is a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle SugarCut, and the sentiment is on a Stitched Flag SugarCut.

Guess what else?!? There are many, many sponsors and lots of prizes up for grabs, so head on over to Tracey’s blog and join in on the fun!

 

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #22

11-9-16

Hi there 🙂 It’s time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs, and here it is:

22

Is that inspiration photo simply gorgeous or what?!?! I used the sketch challenge of course, and for some reason the pink in the inspiration photo inspired me to use this cute little piggy from the Barn to be Wild set!  I colored him with Copics and he’s stamped on a Zig Zag Stitched Circle Sugar Cut. Oh my gosh I love that sentiment!! I placed it on a Stitched Flag Sugar Cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make time to join us this week! Did you know you have all month to play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs online store, up to $50?!?!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 21

Hi there 🙂 It’s time for a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs and I just love this week’s inspiration photo! It’s getting a bit chilly here in the Northeast, so this photo is right up my alley!

21-2

I had to go with a coffee theme for my card, using Caffeine Addict, Espresso Yourself, along with SugarCut dies: Coffee To Go Cup, Stitched Flags. Of course I used the sketch as well. The fun part about this challenge is that you can use the sketch, the inspiration, or both…plus, there’s a prize up for grabs too!

I went a little haywire with this week’s challenge…I flipped the sketch sideways and upside down, and I only used the pumpkin portion of the inspiration photo. Hey, whatever works for your creativity right?!? I used the following supplies for my card:
