SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #50

Hey stamping friends! It’s time for a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs, and I just love this month’s inspiration so much! Check this out:

How much fun is this inspiration photo? I love that the Knit Wit set fits this challenge perfectly. I took the challenge quite literally and turned the balls of yarn from the Knit Wit set into ornaments. Any knitter will appreciate this kind of Christmas card right? There’s also a SugarCut set to cut the images from the Knit Wit set out perfectly, so it makes this card super easy. I simply drew on the strings and bows and added a little bling.

It’s hard to believe we’re less than three weeks away from Christmas! I hope in the hustle and bustle of the season you’ll find some time to make a card and join us, we love to see what you create! Plus, there’s a chance to win a prize and everyone loves free stamping goodies!

Here are the supplies I used:

Stamps: Knit Wit

SugarCut Dies: Knit Wit

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s day 4 and that means tomorrow is the big day!!  Today we’re highlighting the BoHo Feathers set along with the matching SugarCut dies, the Dare to Dream set, and Dreams SugarCut.

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!

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!
