Sugar Pea Designs - Sneak Peek Day 5

Guess what today is?!!! It's release day! I have one more peek to share with you today for the Sugar Pea Designs release. These products will be LIVE on their website at 6pm EST tonight! 

Today's card is featuring this gorgeous Wagon Wishes stamp set and Sending sentiment/die. 

I started with my background because you all know I love my backgrounds! Using a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I white heat embossed this wagon full of beautiful flowers. Then, I ink blended Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean distress oxide inks. Ispritzed with water and dabbed with a paper towel. 



Taking a small paintbrush and picking up small amounts of water, I painted over parts of my wagon image. The water will pick up the ink and leave this faded area which really stands out against the colors! I love "painting" with distress oxides! It is such a fabulous technique. I continue doing this over various parts of the image. 


I layered this to a white cardbase using foam tape for some dimension. I also diecut the Sending word from white card 3 times and layered them using Nuvo Deluxe adhesive. I stamped and white heat embossed this cute little sentiment onto black cardstock and attached to my card. 


For a finishing touch, I added a few Clear Iridescent gems around my image and sentiment.

I hope you like this card as much as I do! Just imagine the colors you could use with this technique!

Pink Avenue with Pink & Main

I mean seriously? How cute is the name of this stamp set with the company name? Totally cute right?! My card today is featuring the Pink Avenue stamp set from the April 2018 Pink & Main Release. 

It is a great scene builder! I stamped out my house images and some trees onto Neenah White cardstock with copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. I kept the coloring pretty simple on this one. I tried to add a little shading in some areas just so it didn't look flat but I didn't stress over it. 

I then die cut the pieces out using the coordinating die set. 


To create my card, I used these fun colored stripes from the Beach Babe paper pack which has a lot of fun papers in it! I added a strip of white card and a strip of this aqua blue cardstock. I also cut out some grass from the Scallop waves die from Pink & Main with Cilantro cardstock. How perfect are these colors?! Am I asking a lot of questions? Yes. That's only because I'm so super excited about this card haha! 

Before I adhere the hill to my card, I'm going to add my sentiment from the Pink Avenue stamp set. 


Once I had my cardbase adhered together, I could attach my images to create this fun scene. 


I am seriously loving this set and I hope you do too!

Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Peek Day 3

Welcome back to Sweet Peeks Day 3! This one is a show stopper for sure! 

These products will be available for purchase on the Sugar Pea Designs website on Friday, April 20th, 2018 at 6pm EST.

My card today is ....FABULOUS!! Seriously, I'm focusing on the Simply Fabulous Die and Stamp set haha!! 

Can you believe I have white space on my card? Shocking right?! I dug out my alcohol inks and played around with a few designs on Yupo paper. Once it was dry, I cut it into strips. 


I attached the strips to a white panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and trimmed off the overhanging edges of the alcohol strips. My sentiment from the Simply Fabulous stamp set is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto black cardstock. Then trimmed down to a small strip.  


I love this scripty fabulous die! I die cut it from some glitter gold cardstock and attached to the card panel with Nuvo Deluxe adhesive. I also attached the Dare To Be sentiment to the card and added a few small stars for a little more interest and tie in m gold cardstock. 


I finished off the card by attaching it to an A2 size cardstock with foam adhesive. I am in love with how this came and the sentiments are amazing on this set!

Mother's Day Cards - Adding Texture

Today's cards were inspired by the texture challenge going on over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog. Texture? Absolutely! 


It's really hard to capture the beauty of these cards on camera but I tried. I'm using one of the new stencils from Simon Says Stamp called New Beginnings. It's so gorgeous! I used the Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone and added it to my white and Sandy Beach cardstock. Make sure to rinse off the stencil right away before it dries.

I'm also using the new Bold Mom die. I originally cut out for two cards using just black cardstock. These letters are 3 layers high to create dimension on my card. Once I started playing with what cardstock I was going to use I cut out another MOM from white cardstock and just added it to the top. I didn't want to waste all the time I spent creating the first one. 




I used a Xyron sticker maker to adhere all my letters together. I think a spray adhesive would probably be more handy ..... if I had some. I also used the sticker maker to add the words to a diecut piece of Vellum.


For my card bases, I layered up black cardstock with some new Sea Glass cardstock from Gina K Designs. Then added my textured panel using some double sided tape. 


For my second card, I layered white cardstock with some new Plum Punch cardstock also from Gina K Designs which is why I switched my MOM to white cardstock to match the layer.


I heat embossed with white embossing powder my fun and sassy sentiment from the CZ Design Emphatic Sentiment stamp set onto the matching cardstock. 


My Bold MOM is adhered to the cards using Nuvo Deluxe adhesive. I let it sit a few minutes with some blocks ontop to really make it stick. I even checked the next day, and that die cut word isn't moving. I was really impressed given it's on the texture. My sentiment strips are adhered down with some double sided tape which also seems to be holding up well.


I love the two different looks this glimmer paste has one the cardstocks and I know my Mom and my Mom-In-Law will get a big kick out of these cards.

Hope you enjoyed them! I have a process video you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.




Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Peek Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Sweet Peeks for Sugar Pea Designs! Keep in mind this release will be available on Friday, April 20, 2018 at 6pm EST.

I had a lot of fun with today's peek! I'm shining a spotlight on the Paris Scape Die and Chic Sentiments stamp set. This gave me a chance to play with some backgrounds and oh the possibilities are endless! I had so many ideas after I created these two cards.

The design itself is really pretty simple. I layered my card white and black cardstock as my base.

I'm using Bristol Smooth cardstock for my backgrounds. For the first card, I'm using Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. Then I spritz with water and dab up with a paper towel .


Seriously - how stunning are these combos!? 


This gives it such a magical feeling.



For my second card, I'm using Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide.


I wanted a more romantic feel to this one because Paris is romance right?


This die cuts beautifully and can be great for so many scenes! 


I also have a video to share showing how I created these two cards effortlessly. You can down below here or on my Youtube channel
