May Your Christmas Be Merry

It's Lawn Fawn's September Inspiration Week, and I'm excited to play with all the new products!  I love the papers from the Snow Day Remix, and thought they would be a great way to set this scene:
Do you see Santa's feet sticking out there in the fireplace?  Good thing I fussy cut out the fire first!
When the tab is pulled, Santa heads back up the chimney to reveal the rest of the sentiment.

SugarPea Designs September Mix It Up Challenge

We're playing with a beautiful color palette and sketch this month over at SugarPea Designs' Mix It up Challenge #59!  I chose to use both options:
The flowers were stamped around the center of a white card stock panel.  I cut a practice heart out of printer paper to make sure the flowers stamped in a pleasing position all around.  The bottom portion of the card stock was fussy cut away in order to add the striped paper.  The navy heart, word die cut, and banner were layered on top.  The second part of the sentiment was heat embossed in white.  The flowers and part of the word die were colored with Copic markers.

I hope you will play along with us this month!  For more inspiration and all the details, please head on over to the SugarPea Designs blog.
Supplies:
SugarPea Stamps:  Meadow Motifs, Sending Sentiments
SugarCuts:  Postage Stamp (heart and "sending"), Card Front Element Builder, Enjoy Tag Set
SugarPea Paper:  Spots and Stripes Brights

SugarPea Designs September Release Day 5

Today is the fifth and final day of SugarPea Designs' new release.  I hope you enjoyed the week and found some inspiration during the hop!  Today we are featuring the new Floral Pocket Tag and Christmas Character SugarCuts.  This little snowwoman, and all the Christmas characters are so fun to make:
I used Copic markers to shade the die cuts and give texture to her hat, carrot, sticks, and scarf.  I googled a cable knit pattern to see how to create the design.  I finished her up with Copic freckles and little white gel pen highlights.

SugarPea Designs September Release Day 4

Day four of SugarPea Designs' release is here and we're dishing up some yummy pie!  There are both stand alone pie die cuts, which you can see on my first card, and a pie stamp set that is featured on my second card.  We are also highlighting this new Leaf Cover Plate die which is so pretty!

I shaded the die cut pieces with Copic markers, added a partial sentiment from the Sweet as Pie stamp set, and the whole card came together easily thanks to the Leaf Cover Plate background.
I stamped three images from the Sweet as Pie stamp set in a light tan ink to create a background, colored them with Copic markers, and added a white heat embossed sentiment from the same set.

 

Also Used:
Dies: Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles, Card Front Element Builder
Ink: Distress Ink Mowed Lawn, Memento Dessert Sand, VersaMark
Copics:  C00,2, YG21,61,63, R22,24,27,29,59, E00,21,23,25, Y32,35,38, YR14,15,23,27,68, G12,14,17
Other: SSS fine detail white embossing powder

SugarPea Designs September Release Day 3

Slug Bug Red (or punch buggie, if that's your thing)!  This retro VW die is so much fun!  There's even a score line so that the door can open!  It's day three of SugarPea Designs' sneak peek week and so many fun new products to share!

I cut the car out of both red and white card stock and colored the white pieces with Copic markers.  The tires were cut from black and it all came together like pieces of a puzzle.  The tree was shaded as well, and the background is stamped with the new Buffalo Check background stamp.  There are two new word dies with borders.  I used the word "merry", and there is also the word, "joy".
I love the white on red buffalo plaid I've been seeing on Pinterest, so that's where my inspiration came from for this card.  It includes the tree that comes with the Christmas Car die set, and the new Oh So Jolly Sentiments stamp set.

 

Also Used:
Dies:  Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles, Postage Stamp
Ink: VersaMark,
Copics:  BG000,01, C00,1,2,3, E23
Other:  SSS fine detail white embossing powder

SugarPea Designs September Release Day 2

Welcome to day two of SugarPea Designs' new release!  There are two new stencils, a snowfall one, and this Geo Snowflake one that I used for my background.  This sweet bear is from the new stamp set, Hey Winter.   
I stamped and masked the hat, then stamped the bear, partially masked the paw to stamp the candy cane, and added the ribbing to create the sweater.  After stamping the trees in the background, I cut the scene out with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle, colored everything with Copics, and partially cut away part of the rectangle.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the die cut banner is part of the new Snow Globe die set.

Here's a video showing how I made this card.  You can watch it here, on SugarPea Designs' YouTube channel, or my YouTube channel:



I did not use the Hey Winter SugarCut Die, or the Falling Snow stencil, but I wanted to show them to you anyway.

Also Used:
Dies: Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle, Card Front Element Builder
Ink:  Distress Ink Spun Sugar, Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: W00,0,1,3,6,7, YG91,93,95, RV000,00,10,11
