The Challenge ~ Guest Designer

Hey stamping friends 🙂 I’m so excited this morning because I’m guest designing for The Challenge at Always Playing with Paper! I was over the moon when Lesley asked me, and I was even more excited when I saw that the challenge photo would be a perfect fit for the RV There Yet? set from SugarPea Designs! Check it out:

I hope I did the inspiration photo justice…boy that hot pink camper is a hoot huh?!?! I so enjoyed coloring it! I also used the TreeScape SugarCut die from SugarPea Designs. I created my night sky with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire), along with a spritz of some white shimmer paint to create the stars.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you find time to play along with The Challenge this week!

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #33

Hi stamping friends! This week it’s my turn to provide some fresh inspiration for this month’s Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs:

You can use either the sketch or the inspiration photo, and this week I opted to use the sketch! I knew I wanted to use the Lantern SugarCut again, so I worked my card to fit the sketch while incorporating the lantern! I also used the new Happy Camper paper pad…don’t the stars on this paper look like they’re actually glowing?! I used distress inks to color my lantern, and to give it a little extra something I added Glacier Sparkly Shaker Collection sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make some time to get crafty with us this month! Don’t forget, there’s a prize up for grabs too!

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop

Hey stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for the Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop at SugarPea Designs! Since the Summer release was last month, we’d like to take this chance to use the new products again, and hopefully give you more ideas to launch your creativity with them as well!

I couldn’t resist using the new Pucker Up set with matching SugarCut dies again! I used die cut circles from the Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCut set to make stencils of different sized circles to sponge ink on to my card front. Super easy and could be done with so many color combinations!

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #32

Hey stamping friends 🙂 This week it’s my turn to share some fresh inspiration using Mix It Up Challenge #32 at SugarPea Designs:

My favorite part of this challenge is that you can use either the sketch, or the inspiration photo, or both! This week I opted for the sketch because I knew I was going to use one of my most favorite sets from the new release called Pucker Up, no matter what the challenge was! Lol. Can you get over the cuteness of this set? And how about those clever sentiments?!:

I also used paper from the Sugar & Spice Patterned Paper Collection & Happy Holidays Patterned Paper Collection, as well as the Pucker UpZig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCuts.  

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make some time to join us…and don’t forget there’s a prize up for grabs! Check out the details on the SugarPea Designs blog!
