MFT Stamps: Undeniable Chemistry

Hi everyone!

Today I have a card to share using some new goodies that I bought last month from My Mum's Craft Shop. I have been a fan of My Favorite Things for many years, and as Kitty will confirm, I usually buy one or two items from each release (...okay, maybe a few more than one or two, haha!).  I simply couldn't resist the LLD Undeniable Chemistry stamp set and coordinating Die-namics Chemistry Set from the MFT Stamps January 2016 release.


Supplies
MFT Stamps: LLD Undeniable Chemistry
MFT Die-namics: Chemistry Set
MFT Die-namics: Blueprints 20
Bazzill cardstock: Coconut Swirl, Blackberry Swirl
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads: Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserve, Rusty Hinge
WOW Embossing Powder: Opaque Bright White Super Fine (WL01SF)
Versamark ink, White vellum, Silver mirri card

For this card, I wanted to follow both the sketch challenge #266 and the color challenge #38 over at the MFT Card Challenges blog.  



I used distress inks to colour both my background and the "liquid" parts of the test tubes and beakers, then randomly flicked drops of water for the "bubbles".  The stitched rectangle is from the Die-namics Blueprints 20 set (one of my favourite set of Blueprints).

The brand new My Favorite Things February 2016 release is now available in the store, along with lots of other gorgeous new products, so maybe a few new stamp and die sets might just *have* to come live with me, haha!

Thanks for dropping by.

Hugs,

SPD January Release Day Blog Hop!

Hi everyone and welcome to the final day of the SugarPea Designs January 2016 Release!

Today we are sneak peeking the darling Egg-a-licious stamp set, the coordinating SugarCuts: Egg-a-licious die, and the January Sweet Incentive stamp set - Funky Wreath Spring Addition.


For today's card, I used the gorgeous Funky Wreath Spring Addition stamp set.  I simply stamped the flowers and leaves using various Memento inks in the bottom left corner of a 148x95mm piece of Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock.  I wrapped some Bazzill Heidi cardstock with some Doodlebug twine and added it to the bottom of a 148x105mm card base, then adhered the stamped panel along the top edge.  Finally, I used the previously released SugarCuts - Thanks die for my sentiment.




 
The Funky Wreath Spring Addition stamp set is this release's Sweet Incentive, which means you will receive it FREE with orders of $60 or more (before shipping and after discounts).  It won't be available for sale in the store until our next bi-monthly release in March, so that means you will receive this set a full 2 months in advance of its release for FREE


Our entire January Product Release will be available for purchase in the SugarPea Designs Store TONIGHT (Friday, January 15th) at 6:00PM EST!

Would you like to win the Egg-a-licious stamp set? All you need to do is leave a comment on today's blog post on the SPD blog for your chance to win! Visit each of our designers' blogs to leave a comment for another entry to win!

SPD January Release Day 4: Key to my Heart

Hi everyone and welcome to Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs January 2016 release sweet peeks!

Today we are sneak peeking the awesome new Key to my Heart stamp set plus the coordinating SugarCuts - Key to my Heart die set.



Supplies
SugarPea Designs: Key to my Heart stamp set
SugarPea Designs: SugarCuts - Key to my Heart die set
SugarPea Designs: SugarCuts - Notched Heart Journal Card die set (small hearts)
Bazzill cardstock: Sweet Pea, Coconut Swirl
Memento ink: Tuxedo Black, Angel Pink
American Crafts POW! Glitter Paper: Gold
Baker's twine
Pretty Pink Posh: 4mm & 6mm Sparkling Clear sequins
Lawn Fawn: Stitched Borders die set
Whimsy Stamps: Basic Border Trio die set


For my card, I started by stamping the 3 patterned hearts from the Key to my Heart stamp set in Memento Angel Pink ink onto a piece of Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock.  I added some die-cut stitching along the bottom edge of the panel and a pink die-cut border to the reverse.  I fixed this along the top edge of my card base, which had been covered in black & white striped paper.  I then cut out one of the keys from the SugarCuts - Key to my Heart die set (together with 2 small hearts using the Notched Heart Journal Card die set) from gold glitter paper, and adhered them to the card front.  I then stamped the 3 separate sentiment stamps from the Key to my Heart stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  A few sparkling clear sequins and a twine bow, and it was done!






Remember our entire January Product Release will be available for purchase in the SugarPea Designs Store on Friday, January 15th at 6:00PM EST!

SugarPea Designs January Release: Sneak Peek Day 1


Happy Monday everyone!  I apologise for neglecting my blog for the past couple of months, but as most of you know, our daughter has been in hospital and had to undergo 2 emergency operations, both under general anaesthetic.  After lots of complications, she is now home.  We still have a far way to go, and even if her healing goes perfectly, she won't be back at school for at least another 3 or 4 weeks, but it is such a relief not to be in the hospital anymore.

Today is the first day of the SugarPea Designs January 2016 release sweet peeks!!


We hope you’ll join us over the next 5 days as myself and the rest of the SugarPea Designers share Sweet Peeks for the 12 NEW products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, January 15th at 6PM EST in the SPD Store.

We promise that each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of our FIVE GIVEAWAYS! All you need to do is leave a comment on the appropriate blog post on the SPD blog for your chance to win!

And because we LOVE giveaways, be sure to WATCH and FOLLOW us on Periscope. Our newest DT member, Dana, will be LIVE TODAY, so watch for your chance to WIN a $20 Gift Certificate.


Today, we are showcasing FOUR new products with you that are part of our Sweet Chic Collection illustrated by ... ME, hehe!











For my card, I used elements from both stamp sets and both die sets.  I started off by making the background for my card using the largest die from the previously released SugarCuts - Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles die set. I stamped the 2 different sized coffee rings from the Caffeine Addict 4x8" stamp set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, but used the second-generation stamping technique to achieve a stained effect.  I then cut out the coffee-to-go cup elements using the SugarCuts - Coffee To Go Cup die set, stamped the "caffeine addict" and the "straw" from the Caffeine Addict 4x8" stamp set in Memento Cottage Ivy ink, assembled it and fixed it over the coffee stains. I cut out the smallest coffee bean and the "latte" sentiment using the SugarCuts - Coffee Words die set from brown card (even though it looks black here, haha!) and added them.  Finally, a couple of sentiment and bean stamps from the Espresso Yourself 4x4" stamp set and it was done!

Would you like to win the Caffeine Addict stamp set? All you need to do is leave a comment on today's post over on the SPD blog telling us about your favourite “warm” beverage! It’s THAT easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

SPD November Release Day Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the final day of the SugarPea Designs November Release!

Today we are sneak peeking the darling new Santa's Gift Tag stamp set.  This stamp set was designed by our fabulous boss-lady, Wendy, and it was made to coordinate perfectly with the previously released SugarCuts - Gift Tag die set that I designed for our November release last year!  It's such a cool stamp set and perfect for whipping up quick Christmas tags:





I was going to hand write the "tick" but then I remembered that there is a little tick mark stamp in the Noted stamp set, so I used that!




Remember our entire November Product Release will be available for purchase in the SugarPea Designs Store TONIGHT (Friday, November 6th) at 6:00PM EST!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the products introduced today! Please leave a comment on this post and the rest of the talented SugarPea Designers shown below and you could WIN! We will chose one lucky person to WIN the Santa's Gift Tag stamp set from the comments left here and on the DT Blogs! All winners during our November Product Release will be announced on Monday, November 9th.
