SPD March Release Day 2: Picture Perfect & Hashtag Hipster

Hi everyone and welcome to Day 2 of out SugarPea Designs March Release!

Today, we are sneak peeking 2 new stamp sets - Picture Perfect and Hashtag Hipster.

For today's card I have used the fabulous Hashtag Hipster stamp set (which also happens to be this month's free Sweet Incentive stamp set - yay!) to make a masculine birthday card:

SugarPea Designs: Hashtag Hipster stamp set
Versamark ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tim Holtz Distress ink: Tumbled Glass
Ranger Mini Blending Tool
MFT Stencil: Small Chevron Stripes
Bazzill cardstock: Blackberry Swirl, Coconut Swirl
WOW! Embossing Powder: Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine (WC01SF)
WOW! Embossing Powder: Bright White Super Fine (WL01SF)
Anchor Artiste Metallic Gold thread 25g
Doodlebug Sprinkles: Beetle Black

I really like the current trend of adding thread/twine behind images.  I wanted to add some black twine behind the gold heat embossed phone, but I only have sewing thread (which is far too thin and doesn't "loop" nicely) or natural twine, which is very rustic.  So I went with the rustic twine, as the card looked bare without anything behind the image.  I'm happy with the card ... but I'm not happy with "hairy" twine, haha!  A few weeks ago I needed to buy some gold twine to use on a magazine commission, and quite by chance whilst in Hobbycraft, I spied some gold crochet thread, which was perfect (and not hairy, lol!).  I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick up a ball of black at the same time, as I think it would have been perfect for this card, so I think a trip to the store is on the cards very soon! :)

Place an order of $60 or more (shipping not included) and you will receive a FREE stamp set that will not be available for sale in the store until the next bi-monthly release! That's right! You will receive a FREE stamp 2 months in advance of its release in the SugarPea Designs online shoppe! The FREE stamp set you can earn this month is Hashtag Hipster:

The other stamp set we are sneak peeking today is Picture Perfect.  I have used her on my card for our next sketch challenge on Monday, so you'll have to wait a few days to see that I'm afraid, lol, but lots of my sweet SugarPea teamies have used her for today's sample cards, so be sure to check them out!

Remember our entire March Product Release will be available for purchase in the SugarPea Designs Store on Friday, March 13th at 6:00 PM EST!
