SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #53

Hi there! Today I’m up on the SugarPea Designs blog sharing my card for this month’s Mix it Up Challenge! I just love the bright and cheerful inspiration photo this month, and who doesn’t love a cake pop or ten?!?!  I based my card mostly on the colors of the challenge, and very loosely followed the sketch:

I used one of my favorite products from the new release for my card, the Concentric Circles Stencil. This stencil is so versatile, I’m using it on everything these days! I sponged on Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon.

I used the You SugarCut in black card stock, along with the Sweet Sentiments – You stamp set. Check out all the fabulous sentiments in this set:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll join us this month, we love to see what you create!

 

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

 

It’s time again for the Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop at SugarPea Designs!!  The design team has come up with some new projects featuring the latest release!

For my card I used the new Concentric Circles Stencil. This is one of my favorite items from the new release because it makes creating stunning designs super quick and easy! For my card I simply sponged Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire stencil, then added Twisted Citron in a smaller circle, then Peacock Feathers in the center. I shifted the stencil a bit between each color so that the lines radiating out from the center would be yellow instead of white. I added the Celebrate SugarCut to the center, and the sentiment is from the Celebrate All The Things stamp set. These three items (under $27! (+s&h) will be the perfect addition to your collection, because you can create unlimited birthday cards with these supplies by changing up the colors and sentiments, or adding some of the other fun elements from the stamp set for more designs!

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet Peek Week ~ Day 4

Hi stamping friends!! It’s day four of a very exciting week at SugarPea Designs! It’s Sweet Peek Week, and tomorrow’s the big day that all the new products will be available for purchase (at 6 p.m. Eastern Time)!! Today we’re highlighting a new stamp set called Easter Wishes, the Easter Word SugarCut, and the Egg Window SugarCut. To create my card I used the bunny from the Egg Window Sugar Cut and cut out five bunnies. I pierced the paper around each bunny for a little added detail, then I adhered different colors of pastel card stock behind each bunny. This set is a great way to create Easter cards (or treats) for those special people in our lives!

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet Peek Week ~ Day 3

Hi stamping friends!! It’s day three of a very exciting week at SugarPea Designs! It’s Sweet Peek Week, and we’ve got so many new and fabulous items to share with you!! Today we’re highlighting a new stamp set called Tutti Fruiti and matching SugarCut set. This set is so much fun and perfect for many occasions! I love the sentiment I chose for my card! Everyone needs a little margarita reference in their stamping stash, right?? I created my card by sponging Distress Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron on watercolor paper. Next I cut the pattern using the Large Striped Cover Plate. I added foam tape to each of the strips to create some dimension. I used foam tape under the lemons also.

All of the new products will available to purchase THIS Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern time! Be sure to comment on THIS blog post for your chance to win too!

SugarPea Designs ~ Sweet Peek Week ~ Day 2

 

Hi stamping friends!! It’s day two of a very exciting week at SugarPea Designs! It’s Sweet Peek Week, and we’ve got so many new and fabulous items to share with you!! Today we’re highlighting a new stamp set called Greatest Hits and matching SugarCut, the Musical CoverPlate and there’s even a stencil called Concentric Circles! For the card above I used the Concentric Circles Stencil and sponged on Distress Ink in Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed. The really cool thing about this stencil is that the circle is actually over 5″ wide, so you can create circles of any size by widening out the area you’re sponging! I also used the Hello SugarCut on my card. This stencil is a super way to make quick cards easily, just sponge on your circles then add any sentiment to finish it off for any occasion!

For the card below I created a shaker card using elements created with the Musical CoverPlate. I ran the CoverPlate through my Big Shot several times using different colors of card stock each time. Then I combined the pieces that were cut out with sequins to create my shaker. I really love the sentiment here…I feel like this sentiment could be for my birthday card since I’m turning 49 in a couple of weeks!

SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #51

Hi there! Have you played along with the Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs yet? This challenge is so much fun because you can play along with the sketch, the inspiration photo, or both! Plus, there’s a suggested color palette to work with too! Who wouldn’t be inspired by a photo of a cozy blanket and a warm cup of coffee? Anyone in the deep freeze happening right now surely would, myself included!! Check it out:

I chose to use the Caffeine Addict stamp set along with the Large Striped CoverPlate for my card. I began with a piece of watercolor paper and applied Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. Then I spritzed on some water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. I colored the coffee cup with Copics (B91, B95, B97), then fussy cut it and applied it to the center of the circle. One of my favorite parts of this stamp set is the little heart that can be added to the center of the cup of coffee, just like in those fancy coffee shops! I added the sentiment in dark brown ink, and done!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make time to join us this month (plus, there’s a prize to be won!).

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
