showCASe your style SYSC#4: Sketch

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at showCASe your challenge, and this fortnight we have a sketch for you ... designed by me, hehe!

You have until midnight EST on Wednesday 24th December to join in and link up your creation.  A randomly selected winner will receive a Whimsy Stamps $10 gift certificate (this will be increased to $15 if the winning entry uses Clearly Whimsy Stamps products) and the DT will also choose their Style Queen and Style Favourites, so plenty of chances to win a prize or be chosen as a favourite!

I used all of the *NEW* Gingerbread products I designed for Clearly Whimsy Stamps to create this card: Gingerbread House stamp set (sentiment), Gingerbread People stamp set, Gingerbread People die set and Gingerbread House die set (white ric rac).

Colour Q is one of my favourite go-to challenges, and so I followed this week's colour combination for my card.

That's it from me for today! Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by today!

SPD Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop!

Welcome to the SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat blog hop where we showcase our newest release! Now that you've had a chance to add these sweet sets to your SugarPea collection, we're bringing you even more inspiration! Be sure to hop along and leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win $20 to spend in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe!

For my hop project I made some tags to use on our Christmas gifts this year.  The colour theme we have for our gift wrapping this year is navy, white and silver.  NOT my first choice by any means, lol, but it was impossible to get kraft, golds, browns and oranges this year (which is the colour of our tree decorations and our lounge), so we went with something completely different, haha!  I was going to photograph the tags with the wrapped gifts, but as all the paper we have used is foiled, it was impossible to photograph them without me in the reflection, haha!  So I decided to just photograph one tag and show you the front and back.

I cut out 2 tags from Bazzill Nightmist cardstock using the Sugar Cuts: Gift Tag die and glued the "wrong" sides together so that the front and back of the tag were both a nice canvas texture.  I then added a dotted border to both sides using a white gel pen.  I stamped the dotty label stamp from the Sweet Chic Collection: Layered Treat Labels in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW! silver embossing powder.  I then cut it out using the corresponding Sugar Cuts: Layered Treat Label die.  I also used this die set to cut out the navy circle and the white circle, plus I used one of the pierced circle dies in the same set to add detail to the white circle die cut.

The sentiment is from the Sweet Chic Collection: Sweet Treats - Christmas stamp set, and again I stamped this in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver ep.  I cut out the largest star, the pierced banner, and the "to" and "from" words from silver mirri card using the internal dies from the Sugar Cuts: Gift Tag die.  I simply glued the pierced banner to the bottom of the front of the tag and snipped off the ends so it was flush with the edges of the tag.  The "to" and "from" die-cuts were fixed to the back of the tag, ready to add the recipient and sender's details with white gel pen:

Here are the graphics of the sets I used for my tag:

Leave a comment at each spot along the way for a chance to win $20 to spend on some SugarPea sweetness of your very own!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy hopping!

Dreaming of a white Christmas

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I have a card to share for the second challenge of the brand new challenge blog, showCASe your style.   This fortnight we have a colour challenge and you have until midnight ET on Thursday 27th November to join in.

For my card, I covered my card base in some patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company 6x6 paper pad.  I then cut some Bazzill Blackberry Swirl cardstock and used the wavy border die from the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Border Trio die set on the top and bottom edges. I then stamped the 2 different sized snowflake and the "Dreaming of a White" sentiment from the CWS Christmas Greetings stamp set in versamark and heat embossed with WOW Bright White embossing powder (WL01SF). Finally I die cut the word "Christmas" from AC POW Gold Glitter paper using my Whimsy Stamps Christmas large word die.

I would like to enter this card into CASology Week 121: Festive challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

SugarPea Designs Holiday Release 2014: Merry Christmoose

Welcome to Day 4 of SugarPea Designs 2014 Holiday Release!  Today we are excited to sneak peek the amazing Merry Christmoose stamp set. Another fantastic set, jam-packed with accessory stamps and fabulous sentiments which make this an all-year-round set!

If you stopped by on Tuesday, you would have read about the horse riding accident our daughter had on Monday.  Miraculously she didn't break or fracture anything, but her horse did step on the back on both her legs (around the knee area), and so she sustained a lot of soft tissue damage and can't walk at the moment.  This meant that my first sneak peek card on Tuesday was a few hours late going up on my blog as we spent most of Monday at the Accident & Emergency department.  I was determined to finish Tuesday's card, as I hate letting anyone down.   Unfortunately, I am going to be late with today's offering as well, as I had to take our daughter to emergency care yesterday as she was crying in pain from one of the wounds she sustained.  But again, I am determined to finish it and get it up on my blog ASAP!  But in the meantime, do check out the amazing samples from the rest of my fabulous teammates - they have really knocked this release out of the park with their creations!

Would you like to WIN the Merry Christmoose stamp set?! Hop along and visit with the SugarPeas, leaving some comment love along the way! One lucky person will be randomly selected to win the Merry Christmoose stamp set!

Don't forget…our entire Holiday Release will be available in the SugarPea Designs Online Boutique at 6:00 PM EST ... TOMORROW!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you again tomorrow for release day!
