SugarPea Designs is excited to be participating in this year's Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember event with an exclusively designed stamp set, and today the SPD DT are showcasing projects made with this adorable set!

For my card,  I cut a stitched panel from white cardstock for the front of my card using the largest die from the SugarPea Designs: Stitched Zig Zag Rectangles die set.  I then die cut 4 circles from the panel, inked some slightly larger circles of cardstock using distress inks (Dried marigold, Scattered straw, Cracked pistachio, Shaded lilac), and placed the inked discs  behind the apertures.  I popped the white die-cut panel up with some foam tape and then added the oh-so-cute koalas (coloured using Copic markers) to the circles, again using some foam tape for dimension.  The teeny tiny koala at the very top of the card is part of a larger stamp.  I didn't do anything fancy - I simply stamped the entire image and then cut around the baby koala , ensuring that I didn't leave any white border at either side of his arms.  Of course, you could selectively stamp the image, but it really wasn't necessary and I do like to take path of least resistance, haha!
