MFT Stamps ~ Sketch Challenge 375

Hello and happy Saturday! I’ve got a zillion things to do but I wanted to sneak in a little stamping first. Have you ever woken up thinking of a card design? I do it all the time! I got an email the other day from My Favorite Things with the new sketch challenge, and last night I thought up the card above in my sleep. Here’s the sketch:

I’ve had this darling set called Fun in the Sun for a while but had not inked it up yet. I had so much fun coloring this little cutie and her accessories with Copic markers this morning. To create the background I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink, then splattered on some Ground Espresso Distress Ink.. To create her polka dotted bathing suit I paper pieced some navy blue paper from the Spots & Stripes Brights Patterned Paper Collection from SugarPea Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you find some time to get crafty this weekend!

SugarPea Designs ~ Hello

Hey crafty friends! I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog today sharing a card I made with products from the new release last week!  One of my favorite products from the new release is the Hello SugarCut. Did you know that this is the “Sweet Incentive” item for this release? That means that you will get this fabulous die included with your order of $60 or more (excluding discounts or s&h) absolutely free! I am finding that I want to add this die cut to every card I make lately!! I also used the new Card Front Element Builder SugarCut. Oh I love the combination of a scalloped edge and stitching!

Check out the blog post HERE for details on how I made this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release ~ It’s Almost Time!

It’s the final day of the Winter Release at SugarPea Designs! I hope you’ve enjoyed everything so far, and we’ve got even more fabulous products to share with you today! The set I used to create the card above is one of my favorites for sure! It’s called Better Together and it has a matching SugarCut die set too! I loved coloring every little cookie and the milk on this card, and this was my Valentine’s Day card for my hubby 🙂

And, here’s a card I made with the new Diagonal Striped CoverPlate SugarCut die:

I used the die to create a stencil, then applied distress ink in a fun color palette with some splatters for texture. I turned to one of my favorites for this release to finish off this card, the Hello SugarCut die (free with $60 purchase)…oh how I love this sentiment!

The new release goes live at 6 p.m. Eastern time tonight!!! In the meantime, be sure to check out what the rest of the team has come up with!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release ~ Day 4

It’s day 4 of the Winter Release at SugarPea Designs and today’s set called Topiary Garden is another one that is perfect for so many occasions! I used it to create a card that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or a birthday! And, how beautiful is this font?!? I love it so much!! This set also has a matching SugarCut set that will make creating beautiful cards a snap!

The new release goes live tomorrow at 6 p.m. Eastern time. In the meantime, be sure to check out what the rest of the team has come up with, and stop back tomorrow for our final day of sneak peeks!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release ~ Day 3

Hello! It’s day 3 of the Winter Release at SugarPea Designs and today we’ve got more amazing products to share! First up is the super sweet new set called Otterly Adorable. Is this cuteness overload or what?! It’s so exciting that there is a matching SugarCut die set too, so no fussy cutting! I paired this little guy with the wavy die from the new Card Front Element Builder that is also being released this week. I used watercolor paper and distress inks to create a watery background.

Next up is the fun new Striped CoverPlate SugarCut. I love that it has a panel built right in to highlight an image or sentiment! I used distress inks to create a fun splattered background before die cutting my watercolor paper. Then I added one of my favorites from this release, the new Hello SugarCut (free with $60 purchase). Finally I put clear acetate behind my die cut and added sequins for a fun shaker card.

The new release goes live this Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern time. In the meantime, be sure to check out what the rest of the team has come up with, and stop back tomorrow for more sneak peeks!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release ~ Day 2

It’s day 2 of the Winter Release at SugarPea Designs and today we’ve got that special set that everyone needs in their collection…Heartfelt Sympathy. All too often we need the perfect sympathy card for a difficult time in someone’s life and we find that we don’t really have anything that suits the occasion. This set has got a huge variety of sentiments, and I chose to use almost all of them on my card! To go along with this timeless set is the Sympathy SugarCut Die.

The new release goes live this Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern time. In the meantime, be sure to check out what the rest of the team has come up with, and stop back tomorrow for more sneak peeks!

SugarPea Designs Winter Release ~ Day 1

Hello! I’m so excited today because it’s day 1 of the Winter Release at SugarPea Designs!! Oh my gosh you are going to LOVE this release! We love them all, don’t we?!?! I’ll tell you, I was blown away when I saw the stamp set we’re highlighting today. I’m a huge fan of flowers and Pretty Peonies is the prettiest flower set I’ve had the pleasure of coloring! I don’t know about you but I am so ready for Spring, and this set took me away from snow filled New England for a bit!

Also released today is this amazing “hello” SugarCut die. This will be FREE with your $60 order!!  It is the perfect addition to any every card! How about the sweet scalloped edge above too? We’ve also got a new SugarCut set called Card Front Element Builder.

I couldn’t stop at just one card, so I created the one below as well. I added paper from the Spots & Stripes Pastels Patterned Paper Collection and the Sugar & Spice Patterned Paper Collection to create another “Spring-y” card:
