SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #45

Hey stamping friends! Have you checked out this month’s Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs yet? This challenge is so much fun, because not only can you use the inspiration photo, or the sketch, or both, but there’s a $50 gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store up for grabs too! Here’s the challenge:

How yummy does that inspiration photo look? Mmmmm. As soon as I saw the picture I thought of the bokeh technique to resemble the dots on the strawberries! I began by applying Distress Oxide Inks to watercolor paper in Candied Apple, Mermaid Lagoon and Squeezed Lemonade. Have you tried the Distress Oxide Inks yet? They’re so creamy and blend together flawlessly, plus the colors are so vibrant! I love them! Next, I have a piece of acetate that I punched various sizes of circles out. I placed it at random spots on my background and applied white opaque ink with a sponge dauber. This was a super simple way to create a fun birthday card!

Here are the SugarPea Designs supplies I used to complete my card:

Stamps:Sweet Sentiments – You

SugarCuts: YouStitched Flags

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop

Hi there! Now that you’ve got some of the goodies from the latest release at SugarPea Designs, the DT is back with some fresh inspiration in today’s blog hop!

For my card I used the Around Town SugarCut, along with Welcome SugarCut (Sweet Incentive Set) and the Warm Welcome stamp set:

I created the background by sponging on Mustard Seed Distress Ink, pretty heavily at the bottom then lessening the amount as I went up. Then I took the Starburst CoverPlate, and die cut it using a scrap of cardstock. I held the die cut over my sponged background and applied white opaque ink to look like rays of sunshine. I moved the die cut as necessary, rotating it around and sponging on more white ink, using the longer sections of the die cut.

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #44

Hi stamping friends! It’s time for a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs! As you can see from the inspiration photo below, I took the challenge quite literally this week!

 

I started by creating a background using Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean. Then I spritzed on some opaque white ink and a gold spritz spray that I found in my drawer to give it a bit of a night time starry feel. Then I added some trees using the TreeScape SugarCut and topped it off with a set sentiment from the set called RV There Yet?

Be sure to stop by the blog and add your card for your chance to win a shopping spree in the SugarPea Designs store! We love to see what you create!

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #43

Hello stamping friends! Today I’m joining in on the current Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs. The great thing about the Mix It Up Challenge is that you can use either the sketch or the inspiration photo, or both! I have used both on my card today. Check out the challenge:

For my card I used the Pretty Peonies set, which you may have noticed I cannot get enough of! For the sentiment I used the Heartfelt Sympathy set. Sometimes beautifully detailed flowers like the one in the Pretty Peonies set can be intimidating for those of you that aren’t as into coloring as others, but a card like this shows that you don’t have to color at all! I began by stamping the peony in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then simply sponged on some Picked Raspberries distress ink around the edges, then spattered a bit of ink and water about too.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join the challenge this month (don’t forget there’s a prize to be won too!), we love to see what you create!
