Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Winter 2016: SugarPea Designs


Hi everyone!

A quick post from me today to share my card for this week's Coffee Lovers Blog hopSugarPea Designs is one of the sponsors for this event, so of course, I had to use my SugarPea Designs coffee- themed goodies!

First, I cut out my card front using the largest rectangle from the the SugarCuts - Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles die set and then did a little ink smooshing using Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks.  I stamped the coffee bean heart from the Caffeine Addict stamp set in Memento Rich Cocoa, then stamped over it in Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear EP (difficult to see in the photo!). The sentiment is from the Espresso Yourself stamp set and was heat embossed in white onto some brown cardstock.  I trimmed it into 2 parts (and also took away the word "a") then fixed it to my card using some foam pads.  Finally, I die cut "Coffee" from brown card using the SugarCuts - Coffee Words die set.





For my layout, I followed this week's sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch #201:

 


Have a great day!

SugarPea Designs October Release: Sweet 2 Repeat blog hop

Now that so many of you have our October Product Release in your hot little hands, the SugarPea Designers have put together new projects that will inspire you with even more creative possibilities featuring the newest SugarPea Designs stamp sets, paper pack and SugarCut dies!


I used one of the pre-designed card fronts from the Happy Holidays paper pad for my card. The paper in our pads is already cut to 4.25x5.5" so you don't need to trim them.  Simply remove a sheet from the pad and fix it to the front of your card!  Super quick and easy!   I stamped the large Merry Christmas stamp ftom the O Christmas Tree stamp set in the circle, added some holly cut using the die from the SugarCut - Beautiful Baubles die set, and a few sparkling clear sequins to finish!

For our final day, we are showcasing two wonderful new die sets that I designed with Wendy -  SugarCut - Beautiful Baubles and SugarCut - For You Tag.


These tag die sets are perfect for creating shaker tags, but I decided to use my *NEW* SugarCut - NativityScape border die with mine to create mini scene tags.  The "Christmas Blessings" sentiment is from the *NEW* O Christmas Tree stamp set, and the "For You" is a die included in the SugarCut - For You Tag die set.

SugarPea Designs October 2016 Release: Day 4

Hi everyone and welcome to the fourth day of the SugarPea Designs October 2016 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing the stamp set that I designed for this release - O Christmas Tree


For my first card, I took one of the sheets of paper from the *NEW* Happy Holidays paper pad and fixed it straight to the front of my card base (no trimming required as these papers are already cut to the size of an A2 card front!).  I then stamped the tree outline from the O Christmas Tree stamp set in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using some glittery gold EP (hard too see the glitter from the angle of my photo - sorry!).  Finally, I stamped a couple of the bauble stamps and the star stamp from the stamp set using red and turquoise ink, and it was done!



For my second card, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock and added some die-cut piercing to the left and right edges.  I stamped the tree from the O Christmas Tree stamp set in brown ink and set to work adding the pine leaves using the teeny tiny pine leaf stamp from the same stamp set!  Once that was done, I added some baubles by stamping the smallest circular stamp several times in red ink. The star and sentiment were heat embossed using glittery gold EP.  I layered the stamped panel onto some gold glitter paper and then added it to my card front, which I'd covered with a piece of red & white striped paper from the *NEW* Happy Holidays paper pad.





All new products will be available for purchase from this Friday, October 14th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.

If you'd like to WIN the O Christmas Tree stamp set, all you need to do is leave a comment on the SugarPea Designs blog! You have all week to comment, and winners during our October Product Release will be announced on Sunday, October 16th.

SugarPea Designs October 2016 Release: Day 3

Hi everyone and welcome to the third day of the SugarPea Designs October 2016 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing the adorable GingerSnaps stamps and dies, together with the fabulous Season's Greetings sentiment stamp set.


I took one of the sheets of paper from the *NEW* Happy Holidays paper pad and fixed it straight to the front of my card base.  These papers are already cut to the size of an A2 card front (4.25x5.5"), so there's no trimming required - super easy!  I stamped a sentiment from the Season's Greetings stamp set in the top right corner, then added a couple of hand-cut banners trimmed from more paper from the Happy Holidays paper pad in the top left corner.  I then stamped and coloured all 5 of the cute little gingerbread people, together with a few of the teeny accessory stamps, from the new GingerSnaps stamp set, cut them out using the coordinating SugarCut - GingerSnaps die set, and added them to the bottom of my card.  






All new products will be available for purchase from this Friday, October 14th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.
