SugarPea Designs April Release Day 2: Terrific Ties

Hi everyone and welcome to the second day of the SugarPea Designs April 2017 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing one of two stamp sets I had the pleasure of designing for this release - Terrific Ties.  We are also introducing its coordinating die set - SugarCut Terrific Ties - as well as another set of word dies - SugarCut Dad Words - both of which I designed.

For my first card, I used the previously-released SugarCut - Starburst Cover Plate to create my background from navy and aqua card.  I then cut out one white and one orange circle using the  SugarCut - Zig Zag Stitched Circles.  I used a smaller circle die from the same die set to cut out the centre of the orange circle to create a stitched frame.  I stamped the glasses image from the Read Between the Lines stamp set in navy ink, and added an orange moustache (cut using the *NEW* SugarCut - Terrific Ties die set) and a navy "Dad" using the *NEW* SugarCut - Dad Words.

For my second card, I followed the fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! #216.  The sentiment is from the *NEW* Terrific Ties stamp set and the ties were cut using the *NEW* SugarCut - Terrific Ties die set.  I cut out 2 "Dad" words using the *NEW* SugarCut - Dad Words die set, off-setting them for a shadow effect, and the navy striped paper is from the *NEW* Sugar & Spice paper pad.

Here are the products we are peeking today:
