SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #31

Hey stamping friends 🙂 Today I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog with some new inspiration for this month’s Mix It Up Challenge:

This time I used the inspiration photo as my jumping off point, using the sweet A Bushel & A Peck set, and “loosely” followed the sketch as well. I also used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles and Stitched Flags SugarCuts on my card.

I hope you’ll take some time to join us this month! Did you know you’ll have a chance to win up to a $50 shopping spree in the SugarPea Designs store? Time to get stamping!!

Here’s how I used the amazing MISTI to create my card:

  • Cut a piece of card stock measuring 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, and place it on the grid lines of paper that comes with the Misti as shown.
  • Place one of the magnetized Creative Corners on the card stock, making sure that it is lined up with one of the grid intersections. This will allow us to stamp our first image off the edge of the card stock.

  • Next close the door of the Misti, which will adhere the stamp to the inside of the opposite side, ink it up, and close it again to stamp the image.
  • Once the image has been stamped, remove the magnetized Creative Corners piece and replace it with a longer, non-magnetized Creative Corners piece to continue stamping more words. Be sure to line up the Creative Corners piece with the same grid intersection. It has the same angle, so it will line up perfectly.

  • Place the next word to be stamped and carefully remove the angle so that the door of the Misti can be shut.

  • Continue to line up the stamps using the angles and stamp until the entire piece of card stock has been stamped.

  • Another fun trick that the Misti is great for is lining up your stamps inside die cut shapes! Simply die cut the shapes as usual, then place the cut piece inside the Misti.

  • Next, line up the stamps inside the die cut spaces. You could add the die cut card stock before this step, but I find it easier to line up the stamps with the black background.

  • Add the die cut shapes after shutting the Misti door to secure the stamps to the opposite side for inking:


Thanks so much for stopping by!

SugarPea Designs ~ Design Team Feature

Hi there 🙂 I’m so excited to be up on the SugarPea Designs blog today as the featured design team member. I created a sweet little card using the Bard to be Wild set, and thought a stack of farm animals would be perfect for the sentiment I chose. Is anyone looking at this card thinking of the song “Big Green Tractor”?? Lol. I was humming the tune while coloring my images with Copics. I added some chicken wire paper from the Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection.

Did you see that there’s a huge birthday celebration happening at SugarPea Designs as well? Check out the details HERE. There’s a blog hop and some amazing prizes to be won!!

SugarPea Designs 3rd Birthday Bash Celebration

Hi stamping friends 🙂 I’m so excited to be a part of the birthday celebration for SugarPea Designs! I love their stamps and have enjoyed every minute of the time I’ve worked with Wendy over the last year!!

Welcome to SugarPea Designs 3rd Birthday Bash Celebration!  

We are so honored to have the opportunity to celebrate this incredible milestone that all of you helped make happen! Today’s festivities included some incredible inspiration from the SugarPea Design Team and some of our very Special Guests.  

Now you can’t have a Birthday Bash without prizes and there are lots of prizes to be won! A few of our blog hop participants will be giving away a SugarPea Designs stamp set, so please leave comments for each hop participant for your chance to win! In addition to this, ONE lucky winner will be randomly chosen from all comments left to receive a $100 Gift Certificate to SugarPea Designs. You have until April 15th to enter to win.

But that’s not all…we also want YOU to be part of the party by sharing a card with us.

Once you have completed the hop, we’d love it if you’d keep the celebration going, by creating a Birthday card or project and linking it up at the SugarPea Designs Blog for a chance to WIN a Mini MISTI and Creative Corners Tool.


For my card I used the Everyday is Christmas and Feeling Sentimental stamp sets. The Everyday is Christmas set is so versatile and can be used for many more occasions than just Christmas!! I’m a huge fan of lots of layers and after coloring this little cutie I had to layer him up with the Birthday Journal Card SugarCut!

Let’s hop along and see what everyone else has in store for you, shall we?!?

Baby Girl Blog Hop for Lesley Croghan

How exciting!! My friend Lesley Croghan is expecting a baby girl very soon and Lori Turner has organized an amazing blog hop for her! Even better, we’ve all sent our actual cards to Lori who packaged them up for Lesley to open today…right now!!!

I “met” Lesley several years ago when she was starting up The Card Concept. Wow, what an amazing talent she has, not only for stamping, but for developing fabulous challenges! Plus, she’s an all around sweetheart too! A little over a year ago Lesley introduced me to Wendy at SugarPea Designs and I became her Blog Writer/DT Coordinator and also part of her design team. What an absolute dream company to work for! I’ll forever be thankful to Lesley for the opportunities she has presented me with!

I hope that Lesley and Corey enjoy every minute with their beautiful new baby girl when she arrives, and I know she is one lucky little girl already!

Lesley, I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of the love being showered on you today! Enjoy 🙂
