SPD 1st Birthday Bash!


SugarPea Designs is so excited to be celebrating our 1st Birthday – and what an amazing year it has been!! We are celebrating this momentous occasion with a Blog Hop featuring our AMAZING SugarPea design team and some very talented Special Guests!



Supplies
SugarPea Designs: Special Delivery stamp set
SugarPea Designs: SugarCuts - Air mail die set
SugarPea Designs: SugarCuts - Heart Journal Card die set
SugarPea Designs: SugarCuts - Special Delivery Accents die set
Bazzill cardstock: Date Swirl, Berry Sensation, Watermelong Sensation
Core'dinations cardstock: Thimbleberry
Memento ink: Grey Flannel

For my card, I used lots of new goodies from our January release, and also followed our current SugarSketch #18 for my layout.  I used one of the dies from the SugarCuts - Air Mail set to die cut the airmail slots along the bottom of a 105x51mm piece of white card.  I masked this part using post-it notes and then stamped the 2 letter stamps from Special Delivery in Memento Grey Flannel ink several times.  I fixed a piece of Bazzill Watermelon Sensation cardstock to the reverse of the white panel so that it would show through the die-cut airmail slots, and then added the panel to a 105x148mm Bazzill Date Swirl card base using foam pads.  The word "love" and the 3 hearts in the top right corner were cut using dies from the SugarCuts - Heart Journal Card set.  I also added an envelope which was die-cut using the cute stitched envelope die from the SugarCuts - Special Delivery Accents die set.  Finally, I stamped another envelope from Special Delivery in Memento Grey onto a scrap piece of white card, fussy cut it out, and slipped it into the slot in the envelope.  I ran the stitched envelope die through my Cuttlebug one last time using Bazzill Watermelon Sensation cardstock, discarded the envelope, but glued the teeny tiny heart onto my stamped letter.



Now you can’t have a Birthday Bash without PRIZES, and there are lots of prizes to be won along the way! A few of our blog hop participants will be giving away a SugarPea Designs stamp set, so please leave some love on your travels. In addition to this, one lucky winner will be randomly chosen from all the comments left and that winner will receive a whopping $100 Gift Certificate to spend in the SugarPea Designs store!


But that’s not all…we also want YOU to be part of the party by sharing a card with us! Once you have completed the hop, we’d love it if you’d keep the celebration going by creating a birthday card/project and linking it up here for a chance to WIN a $25 Gift Certificate!
