Hi all! Welcome to another SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge. This month we are still working with the Anything Goes theme! For my card, I did some watercoloring using my Zig pens and stamped a sentiment from the Lovely Leaves stamp set directly onto the background. I then layered part of the Homescape SugarCuts die over it then adhered then entire piece to my smooth white card base. A nice, quick thank you card because we all know how nice it is to feel appreciated :-D
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to play along for your chance to WIN!
You may remember this card from the Coffee Lover's Winter Blog Hop. Trust me, I had another card in the works and life unexpectedly got in the way (trust me, you don't want the details!), so alas, here is my card using the newly released Latte Love stamp set and matching dies. I love these cups and the different designs you can stamp in them! And the sentiments are Super! After stamping the 'coffee' inside the cups, I colored in the white parts left behind with a Copic to give it that coffee creamer look. The sentiment is embossed and I have to add a couple of circle banner dies, buttons and twine.
This new release is available NOW!
And, be sure to comment along the way for your chance to WIN the ENTIRE RELEASE!
I know you're excited about this release so I'll get right to my card! Today I created a background using the small images from the Friends stamp set. I used my Copics to color them in after randomly stamping them onto Neenah white card stock. I cut out the new matching Friend word die from gold foil and black card stock. Isn't that such a cool font!? Now, let's talk about the Happy Birthday sentiment - I created it using the new Sassy Script Capitals & Numbers stamp set that matches the previously released Sassy Script stamp set. How totally fun are these?!!? Endless sentiments at your fingertips! You can personalize ALL THE THINGS! :D Ok, back to the card... I easily stamped out the sentiment then added some gold YNS gumdrops. I added a strip of gold foil and black card stock to separate the two layers.
Don't forget, our release is available NOW!

I'm going to get right to it because we have quite a bit of eye candy for you! My card today features the Corner Adorner stamp set and the Because word die. Just LOOK at that flower stamp! GAHHH! I embossed it with gold embossing powder then colored in the image with various colors of metallic watercolors. The 'because' was cut out 3 times for extra dimension, then layered over a sentiment from the Corner Adorner set. The top layer is a light purple card stock (Grapesicle) to accentuate the purple in some of the flowers. I seriously can't tell you how much I love that Corner Adorner set!!!
And you know what the good news is??? The entire release is available in the store NOW!!!

For my card, I'm using the NEWLY released - as in TODAY! - set by Lil Inker Designs called Latte Love! This set is so adorable and comes with matching dies! I love the different coffee designs that are included! To create the look here, I inked the 'coffee' with chocolate brown ink then stamped off once before stamping it in the coffee cup. I used a Copic marker (E31) the to color in the white part so that it looks more like coffee creamer. Clear as mud, lol? I embossed one of the sentiments from the set and added some Circle Banners, along with a few buttons and twine. The color combo came from the current CTD422. I also used the FMS266 sketch.
And check it out! You have an opportunity to WIN this set - just comment as you hop along!

Hi all! I'm so happy to be joining you today! If you didn't know, my family and I moved from Oklahoma to Spring Branch, Texas last month. It's been hectic, to say the least, but we're in our house and I can see a tiny little light at the end of the tunnel (made of boxes, ha!). I actually have my craft nook set up just enough that I was able to make this card for the SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge today! A little tip for getting back into card making when you've been away from it for a bit - pick an image, some designer paper and a cool sketch to get the mojo flowing again! I colored this cute scooter from the Wanderlust stamp set. Yay for not forgetting how to color with Copics! :D I fussy cut it then layered it over the sentiment from the Going Places stamp set. The designer paper is from the It's a Celebration paper pack.
Another task is finding the best place to take pictures of finished projects...

Hi all! I'm happy to be participating in Tracy's25 Days of Christmas Tags, this time featuring Birch Press Design stamps and dies!!!
For my first tag, I used the Let It Snow stamp set and matching dies. The 3 layered tree stamps were inked with two different green inks and stamped onto kraft card stock. I then used some white pigment ink and an aqua brush to fill in some spots. The sentiment and snowflakes are also from that set.
For my last tag, I watercolored some paper with red and green distress inks then used the Mini Poinsettia die. I layered the poinsettias and added chunky silver glitter to the centers. The sentiment is from the Let It Snow stamp set and is embossed with gold EP. I embossed it twice so that it has a slight shadow effect.

Hi all! I'm happy to be playing along with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Hop coordinated by the sweet Tracy McNeely! I made a trio of tags using Lil Inker Designs stamps and dies. For the first one, I used the newly released 'Tis the Season stamp set. I colored it with Copics then sponged some blue ink around the edge.
The second and third tags I made are pretty clean and simple which I think is PERFECT when you have lots of tags to make. Plus Christmas is a busy time, so whenever I can simplify something during that time - sign me up! Both tags have sentiments from the All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set. I freaking love the movie Elf, so I sponged this tag to match this sentiment ;) I also added big plops of water then dabbed it with a paper towel to remove the ink to add some 'character' to the sponging.
For my last tag, I added a die cut tree from the Rustic Christmas stamp set (using the matching dies), along with a few trees lightly stamped in the background. I masked off a 'hill' to sponge on the sky, then added some green sponging to the bottom.

For today's card I used the Baubled Wreath die and the Merry Christmas Border die. Love, LOVE!!! I used a few different shimmery papers to cut out the wreath so I had a variety to choose from when filling in all the circles. The wreath itself was cut out of gold foil paper. This was so fun and therapeutic to make! :)
