SugarPea Designs December 2019 release: Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to the second day of the SugarPea Designs December 2019 release sweet peeks!

We hope you’ll join us this week as we share Sweet Peeks for our NEWEST products, available to purchase in the SPD Store from this Friday, December 13th at 6PM EST.

Today we are sneak peeking For Pug's Sake stamp set, SugarCut - Envelope Liner die set, and some new envelopes!


For my card, I started off by attaching a purple stitched rectangle (cut using one of the dies from the Card Front Element Builder die set) to the front of my card base.  I then cut a scalloped stiched panel from white card using (again using one of the dies from the Card Front Element Builder die set), then inked the centre of the panel with Dusty Concord distress ink and added some flicks of water.  Once the panel was dry, I added it to the centre of the card front using foam pads for dimension.

I used the *NEW* SugarCut - Envelope Liner die set to cut out the floral elements and the word Love from different coloured cardstock, layering the elements and attaching them to the card front.  The adorable image is from the gorgeous *NEW* For Pug's Sake stamp set (illustrated by the very talented Vera Yates).  I coloured this using Copic markers, fussy cut it out and then popped it up with foam pads for dimension.  Finally, the sentiment is from a new set we are sneak peeking tomorrow called Sentiments of Love, and I simply heat embossed it in white onto some strips of pink card.

I used the largest die from the *NEW* SugarCut - Envelope Liner die set to cut out a envelope liner from pink striped paper from the Spots & Stripes Pastels paper pad, then popped it inside a Purple Rain envelope to match my card.

SugarPea Designs December 2019 release: Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first day of the SugarPea Designs December 2019 release sweet peeks!

We hope you’ll join us this week as we share Sweet Peeks for our NEWEST products, available to purchase in the SPD Store from this Friday, December 13th at 6PM EST.

Today we are sneak peeking 3 brand new products that I had the privilege of illustrating/desigining ... Cheers to You stamp set, Cheers to You coordinating die set and a Cheers Word die (with shadow).

For my first card I used the Cheers to You stamp and die set, together with the Cheers Word die, to create a New Year celebration card.  The Cheers to You die set has coordinating dies for the stamped images as well as 3 additional small standalone accessory dies that can be used with the main bottle outline die to create a separate standalone die cut bottle.  The drinks glasses can also be used on their own as well as with the coordinating stamps. I wanted to add the year my card, so used the number stamps from the For the Graduate stamp set.


The Cheers to You stamp set can be used for lots of different celebration cards, not just those which celebrate the New Year.  When I was designing this stamp set, I included some fun shaped glasses as well as lots of tiny accessory stamps so you can create your favourite drink in stamp form!


For my second card I created a ginberry fizz, mojito, tequila sunrise and a martini, adding glossy accents to the glasses for a little shine.  I added a simple Birthday Wishes sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments stamp set cut out with the coordinating Sentiment Strips die set.



New products we are showcasing today:

SugarPea Designs Stamptember exclusive & Mix It Up Challenge 59


Today I am sharing a card that I made for the current SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #59 using a brand new SugarPea Designs stamp and die set (that I happened to illustrate) called Nordic Village.

This is an EXCLUSIVE whilte-stocks-last set released in collaboration with Simon Says Stamp for their Stamptember celebration.  The stamp set and the stamp and die set bundle is available to purchase exclusively from Simon Says Stamp while stocks last!

https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/product/SugarPea-Designs-Clear-Stamps-and-Dies-Set-STAMPtember-2019-Exclusive-setsr19sp/0

For my card, I started by die cutting a 4.25x5.5" stitched panel from grey card using the largest die from the Card Front Element Builder die set.  I then used some clear embossing paste with the Falling Snowflake Stencil to add some detail to the panel.  (Before the paste was dry, I sprinkled it with very fine glitter).  Once the panel was dry, I fixed it to a 4.5x5.75" navy card base.

I stamped one of the houses and the little bird using pink ink, a tree using green ink, and 2 houses and a second tree using navy ink, then added some additional colour to the houses using navy, green and pink Copic markers.  I also stamped 4 of the tiny strings of beads in navy ink, then cut everything out using the coordinating die set.

The houses were fixed to the top of a panel of white card using foam pads for dimension, and the trees were glued in between (I couldn't use foam pads as they would have been too unstable).  I glued the strings behind the houses and trees to connect them, added foam pads behind everything and popped the finished village onto the front of my card.  To finish, I added the tiny pink bird to the top of the navy tree.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the set in Versamark ink onto a strip of navy card, heat embossed it in white, then added it below the scene using foam pads.

SugarPea Designs September 2019 Release Day

Hi everyone and welcome to the final day of the SugarPea Designs Holiday 2019 sneak peeks!

The new release will be available to purchase in the SPD Store at 6PM EST TODAY (Friday, September 13th 2019).

For our final day of sneak peeks, we are showcasing 2 fantastic die sets - Floral Pocket Tag and a Christmas accessory set to go with the Pocket Tag - Christmas Characters.

The Floral Pocket Tag is a stand-a-lone die that when assembled has a pocket in the back which is the perfect size for a credit card sized gift card.  The tag set comes with flower and leaf dies so you can use it for any occasion ... HOWEVER, you can also purchase a separate add-on set of dies that allows you to cut all the shapes to turn the pocket tag into at least 5 different Christmas characters!  How cool is that?  Although I haven't experimented yet, I'm 99.9% sure that the character die set will be able to be used to create non-Christmas characters/critters as well! :)


For my project today, I had the idea to create an advent calendar of 25 tags.  However, so far I've only managed to create 3, lol! (And I haven't added the numbers yet but I will use the small typewriter numbers from the SugarCut You're My Type die set).  But hopefully you get the idea.  We are going to put little "treats" into the back pockets such as chocolate, biscuits, candy canes, small gifts etc. and hang them on a tabletop tree.   I used coloured card and patterned paper from various SugarPea Designs paper pads, together with some glitter cardstock.  It's difficult to tell from the photo but the black tag of the penguin character has been stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp and heat embossed with black glittery embossing powder.
