SugarPea Designs Sketch Challenge #43

030216Hi stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs! Do you know that you can play along with any or all 4 of the sketch challenges each month for a chance to win up to $75 in the SugarPea Designs store?!?! Fun! Here’s the sketch:

SPDSS43For my card I used the Coffee To Go Cup Sugar Cuts, along with the Espresso Yourself stamp set, and I also used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts for the layer behind the to go cup. I love the zig zags for a little extra something instead of a plain stitched circle!

SugarPea Designs Sketch #42

Hi stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for a new sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs and I was so excited to use this new set I got called Blow Me Away…oh my gosh how cute is this little fella??? Here’s the sketch:

SPDSS42

 

I so enjoyed coloring this little guy. Here are the Copics I used: YG03, YG05, YG17, YG67, YG97, V04, V06, V09. I also used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts. I love that it’s an assortment of circle sizes and the design is different from many other circle dies I’ve seen.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don’t forget you can play along with all of the sketch challenges this month for a chance to win a $75 shopping spree in the SugarPea Designs store!

SugarPea Designs Sketch Challenge #41

021716-kerin-sylvesterHi stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for a new sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs and of course Wendy has created a fun one for us! SPDSS41

I flipped the sketch because I wanted to use the Special Delivery stamp set and the paper airplane flies in the opposite direction. I used the coordinating Sugar Cuts called Special Delivery Accents also. I created a background for my scene using Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry…boy was that a messy production but I love the end result! I added a few sequins and some sparkly DSP to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll have time to join us this week.

SugarPea Designs Sketch Challenge #40

21016-kerin-sylvester

Hi stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for a new sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs:SPDSS40

For this week’s sketch I immediately thought of this sweet pizza man from the Pizza My Heart set. I think he is too cute, and so much fun to color also. I found this cool houndstooth patterned paper and it reminded me of some chef’s pants I’ve seen on cooking shows so I had to incorporate it in my card! I colored him with Copics…usually I tell you what colors I used, but I used a lot of different colors and accidentally put them all away before taking note of the numbers!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make some time to join us this week…you could win up to a $75 gift certificate to SugarPea Designs, what’s more fun than that?!?

For my card I used the Bushel & A Peck stamp set…oh my gosh how cute is this sentiment, “I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck”…awwwww. I love that there are many different things this cute little girl can have in her basket, hearts, flowers, shamrocks, apples, or Easter eggs!

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

SPDSS37Hi stamping friends 🙂 How’s your week going? I hope you’re finding some time to get crafty…coloring is good for you, you know! Today I am playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs:

I decided on a square card for this one because I really wanted to use this sweet raccoon from the Great Catch set. I colored him with the following Copics:

Raccoon: N2, N3, N4, N5, N7, N9

Vest: R24, R27, R29+

Hat/Pole: E34, E35, E37

I outlined him with a little BG000 to give him a little more pop. Thanks so much for stopping by!
