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!

Tonight at 6 p.m. the new release will be live in the SugarPea Designs store!  Today we’re featuring Christmas Tag Greetings,  the Snowflake Tag SugarCut Die, and Tinsel in a Tangle with its matching SugarCut die set! Oh my gosh this little penguin wrapped in Christmas lights is too stinkin’ cute!

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 🙂

Power & Spark Challenge ~ Winter Blooms

Hi friends 🙂 Today I’m sharing a card I made to play along with the Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge, Winter Blooms:

I have to admit, at first creating a Christmas card in mid-January seemed a bit strange, but I knew the Hollyberries set would fit the challenge and they were just calling out to be colored so I couldn’t resist! I used Copics of course: G40, G43, G46, G85, R21, R27, R39. Looks like I’ll be ahead of the game for next year’s cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

11-10-16

Hi there 🙂 I’m so excited to be joining the fun for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags that Tracey hosts! SugarPea Designs is a sponsor today and I couldn’t resist playing along! I went for a non-Christmas Christmas tag…haha does that even make sense? I had the idea to create a jar of cookie ingredients and make a tag to go along with it using the adorable Whisky Business set. I have to say, I wish my jar looked as neat as some of the perfectly layered jars you see on Pinterest! To do that I recommend you don’t tip your jar sideways to tie your bow like I did lol!!! My tag base is a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle SugarCut, and the sentiment is on a Stitched Flag SugarCut.

Guess what else?!? There are many, many sponsors and lots of prizes up for grabs, so head on over to Tracey’s blog and join in on the fun!

 

SugarPea Designs Sketch #52

5-4-16-for-blog-kerin-sylve

Hey there! It’s time for a new sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs! Here’s this week’s sketch:

May 4

I can’t get enough of the Caffeine Addict and Espresso Yourself sets…it seems like every week I look at the sketch and instantly want to use one of these sets!! Lol. I also used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles, Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles, and Stitched Flags on this card.

I hope you’ll make time to join us this week! Sorry it’s a short and sweet post today, but my internet is out, I’m using my phone as a mobile hotspot and I’m almost out of data! Eeep!

MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge

012116-kerin-sylvesterHi stamping friends 🙂 For today’s card I’m playing along with the sketch challenge on the MFT Stamps blog. Here’s the sketch:264

I used the Birdie Brown Sweet Birthday Wishes set from MFT Stamps, and I colored the cupcake with my Red Berry Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker, then added a little Spectrum Noir DR4 and DR6 for a little darker shading. The cupcake wrapper was colored with Spectrum Noir markers in TN4, TN6 and TN8. I hope you can see the shimmer in this close up:
