Spellbinders Sparkling Christmas Collection


Hello there!  Today, I have a project to share with you as a guest for Spellbinders to kick off their beautiful Sparkling Christmas Collection!  The collection is available NOW on the Spellbinders website.  You can see it all HERE.

I created a set of clean and simple holiday gift tags using the new Kaleidoscope Plaid Etched dies and the new Christmas Mixed and Match Sentiments Etched dies from the new collection.  The Kaleidoscope Plaid dies are so fun and versatile. For my gift tags, I diecut each of the three layers once, all from white cardstock, but you can diecut them four times to cover a card front!  Cut them all from the same color cardstock, or each from a different color to create your own plaid color combinations.  Each layer was adhered with a glue pen and I used a tiny hole punch to add some red and white twine to each.  The sentiment was diecut from red cardstock using the new Christmas Mixed and Match Sentiment dies, which are a beautiful script font!  So pretty!

For a little sparkle, I added a scattering of clear flat sequins.  It adds just a little something without taking away from the beauty of the plaid and that gorgeous scripty font!  The possibilities are truly endless with these versatile dies!

Lots of Happy {SugarPea Designs}

Hello there! I have a fun card to share with you today using products from SugarPea Designs!  This was my first time trying this technique but it won't be the last!  It's so fun and relaxing to do!

I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25".  I used the Leaf Canopy Stencil and Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide ink to create a leaf patter, in the top left corner of the panel, white I faded into white.  Then, I used colored pencils to add shading to the leaves and make them pop off the panel.  This is was easy to do, and it really makes a huge difference!

Lots of Happy

I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set, and the coordinating Happy Word SugarCuts for the sentiments on my card.  I diecut the Happy Word from dark green cardstock and mounted it on a white shadow, then heat embossed the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts on dark green cardstock with white embossing powder.  I over lapped the diecuts to pull the sentiment together, and added a scattering of green gems before popping the panel up on a white A2 card base.

Lots of Happy

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

SugarPea Designs July Mix It Up Challenge

Hello and welcome to our monthly Mix It Up challenge at SugarPea Designs! You have all month to play along with us.  Remember the more times you play along during the month using SugarPea Designs product, the better chance you have of winning a $50 gift certificate to our store!

Here is this month's Mix it Up Challenge!

To play along, make a project using just the inspiration, just the sketch or Mix it Up and use both! It is totally up to you!

Here is my take on the challenge. I used both the sketch and the color palette.  I started off with a piece of light grey cardstock cut to an A2 card base.  I masked off a circle and used the Geo Tri Hex Stencil and some Pumice Stone Distress Ink to create the focal point for my card.   I stamped and colored the adorable alligator from the Later Gator stamp set, along with a few accessories from the stamp set.  They were colored with colored pencils on the same light grey cardstock, and diecut with the coordinating Later Gator Sugar Cuts.

I arranged the pieces to create my little scene, and popped everything up with foam tape.  A sentiment from the set was stamped on a scrap of matching cardstock and also popped up with foam tape.  I added some tiny wood stars, google eyes, and white gel pen accents to finish off my card.

That's all for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

June Mix It Up Challenge {SugarPea Designs}

Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the June Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs!

This time, I used the card sketch only.  I started off with a piece of white cardstock, cut 4" x 5.25".  I added a strip of patterned paper from my stash in the center of the panel.  Then, I used the largest cloud on the Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil and some white pigment ink to add a cloud for my little astronaut to stand on.  I outlined the cloud with a white gel pen.  I stamped and colored one of the astronauts and one of the planets from the To Infinity and Beyond stamp set, and fussy cut them with my scissors.  Then, I stamped a sentiment from the set below my focal point, and added some tiny wood stars and white gel pen accents before popping the panel up on an A2  card base.

June Challenge

That's all for me today! I  hope you will play along with the challenge!  All of the details can be found on the SugarPea Designs blog!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Reverse Confetti 7th Birthday Blog Hop!

WOOHOO!  It's Reverse Confetti's 7th Birthday!  I am so thankful to have been part of the RC family for 4 of those birthdays and I am so excited to be back to help one of my favorites celebrate!!

My card today uses the adorable new Corgi Cuties stamp set and the FREE gift with purchase, Friendly Rainbow.  I LOVE them both! :)

To create my card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25".  I stamped the rainbow from Friendly Rainbow in black ink, then masked it off.  I used my distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch to ink blend a background over the rainbow, splattered on some clean clear water and watered down Blueprint Sketch ink.  I removed the mask and colored the rainbow with my Copic markers.

Hello Friend

I stamped and colored the outline cloud from the Friendly Rainbow stamp set several times, then fussy cut them with my scissors.  Then, I stamped and colored one of the Corgi Cuties and diecut him with the coordinating Corgi Cuties Confetti Cuts dies.  I popped the clouds and the Corgi up with foam tape, and before I popped the panel up on an A2 card base, I added a strip of rainbow paper from the Cue The Confetti paper pad.  To finish off the card, I added some white gel pen accents and a scattering of tiny clay hearts.

Hello Friend
