SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #38

Hello! Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? Have you whipped up a zillion cards to mail??? I have quite a few made, but haven’t actually written any of them out or mailed them! I made this card for the current Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs, which is to make whatever you like!!

I used the Flurry of Warm Wishes stamp set, (I love these snowflakes so much!!!) stamped snowflakes randomly on watercolor paper with Versamark ink, then embossed with white embossing powder. I added various shades of purple distress ink. I’m so happy with how it came out. I don’t know about you but I love non-traditional colors on holiday cards!

I hope you’ll take some time from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to get crafty! Don’t forget, there’s a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store in it for one lucky winner!

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #37

Hello stamping friends! Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? I don’t know if I’ve mentioned on my blog before, but we have what’s known as the Sylvester family appliance curse. Yes, since we’ve lived in our home (about 12 years), we’ve replaced every appliance more than once!! Plus, as a fun holiday bonus, it typically happens at Thanksgiving or Christmas! Well, this year is no exception…my oven broke on Monday (would not heat up I got an error code every time!)!! Needless to say, with my husband working out of state and Thanksgiving prep only two days away I was in a panic. I even told him I would buy an oven and he could install it when he got home (Wednesday night). Crazy, I know!! Well, I’m one happy girl today because my hubby found the part and came home a day early and fixed the oven! Woohoo I can cook for the 13 people that will be at my house tomorrow! Hahaha. I hope everything goes smoothly in your holiday world! Now, onto the real reason your here and something much more fun…

The SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge!!

I went with a fun fall themed card using:

Stamps:  Fall Fox

SugarCut Sets:  LanternStitched Flags

Paper: Countryside Charm Patterned Paper Collection

I hope you’ll take some time for yourself to get crafty this weekend! Plus, don’t forget the SugarPea Designs Black Friday Sale is going on now so it’s time to stock up on all your favorite SugarPea Designs goodies!!

 

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

Hi stamping friends! Now that the new SugarPea Designs products have been out for a bit it’s time for some fresh inspiration! Have you gotten some of your favorite goodies yet? I sure hope so because there are so many great cards by the design team, with lots of new ideas! For my card I used the Pinecone Greetings set. I just love how versatile this set is, and with the matching SugarCut die set the possibilities are endless! I sponged a little Mowed Lawn distress ink on top of the sprigs after I stamped to fill it in a bit.

Let’s see what the rest of the team has come up with:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Wendy!

Today we are celebrating a very special lady, Wendy Ramlakhan, the owner of SugarPea Designs! We’re having a blog hop in honor of the birthday girl!

I met Wendy almost two years ago through my friend Lesley, and when I was offered the chance to work for Wendy I was over the moon excited because I adored SugarPea Designs products! Little did I know at the time, I had so many more reasons to be so excited because not only were the products fabulous, but Wendy is a dream to work with! She is the most kind-hearted, creative and generous person! Wendy, I adore you and so appreciate how passionate you are about SugarPea Designs, and the countless hours you put in to make SugarPea Designs the amazing company we all love! I hope you have the best birthday!

Now, let’s see what everyone else has created and the messages they have to share with Wendy:

For my card I used the You SugarCut die, the Sweet Sentiments – You stamp set, and the It’s a Celebration Patterned Paper Collection, plus I added a few Nautical Sparkly Shaker Collection Sequins.

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #36

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card I created using the current Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs:

My favorite part of the Mix It Up Challenge is that you can use the sketch, the inspiration photo, or both! Today I used the sketch along with a little inspiration from the photo…I used purple striped paper from the Spots & Stripes Brights Patterned Paper Collection to mimic some of the ribbon shown. Here are the other supplies I used:

Stamps: Monster Mash

SugarCut Sets: Monster MashZig Zag Stitched CirclesZig Zag Stitched RectanglesStitched FlagsBeautiful Bauble

Plus, don’t forget there’s a prize up for grabs! You have a chance of winning a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store for up to $50!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I look forward to seeing what you create!
