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! :)
