SugarPea April 2018 release: RELEASE DAY

Hi everyone and welcome to SugarPea Designs April 2018 RELEASE DAY!

Today we are showcasing the darling Sending Sentiments stamp set (which coordinates brilliantly with the Sending word die that's included in the *NEW* SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate die set) as well as the Sweet Incentive product for this release - the oh-so-cute Wagon Wishes stamp set.


For my card, I decided to use the *NEW* SugarCut - ParisScape die that we peeked on Tuesday.   I die cut it from watercolour card and loosely painted it with diluted distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon), before adding some B&W striped paper to the bottom. (The stitched rectangle of my card front was cut using the previously released SugarCut - Card Front Element Builder).  I used the *NEW* SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate die set to die cut the word "Sending" from gold glitter paper, and then heat embossed one of the sentiments from the *NEW* Sending Sentiments stamp set in white onto a strip of black card.  The ParisScape and heat embossed sentiment were popped up with foam pads for dimension, and finally I added a few enamel dots to coordinate with the colours of the inks.


Here are the new release products I used on my project today:

SugarPea April 2018 Release: Day 4

Hi everyone and welcome to Day 4 of the SugarPea Designs April 2018 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing 3 new release products: 24 Carrot Friend stamp set, the accompanying SugarCut - 24 Carrot Friend die set, and the gorgeous SugarCut - Eyelet Cover Plate die.


I die cut the SugarCut - Eyelet Cover Plate from white cardstock, fixed it to a 4.25x5.5" panel of orange card, and then adhered it to the front of my card base.  I used the smaller postage stamp die from the SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate set to die cut a postage stamp from a sheet of teal spotty paper from the Spots & Stripes - Brights paper pad.  I then used the stitched heart die from the SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate set to cut out a heart aperture and fixed some white card behind it.  I adhered the panel to the centre of the card front using foam for dimension.  I die cut Hello from orange card using the hello die (available to purchase on Friday).  The sentiment was heat embossed using both white and gold glitter EP to highlight "24 carrot".  I then stamped one of the bunnies and a couple of carrots from the 24 Carrot Friend stamp set, coloured them using Copics, cut them out using the SugarCut - 24 Carrot Friend dies, and popped them up on foam pads.

Here are the brand new products I used on today's card:

SugarPea April 2018 Release: Day 3

Hi everyone and welcome to the third day of the SugarPea Designs April 2018 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing 3 new release products: Reading Friends stamp set, SugarCut - Fabulous word die and the accompanying Simply Fabulous stamp set.



For my card, I focussed on the SugarCut - Fabulous word die and the coordinating Simply Fabulous stamp set.  First, I die cut the largest postage stamp from white card using our *new* SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate.  I then inked the panel with Peacock Feathers distress ink, adding some flicks of ink and water for interest.  The panel was then mounted onto a 4.25x5.5" card base covered with Stampin Up Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I die cut SugarCut - Fabulous from gold glitter paper, then heat embossed 2 of the sentiments from Simply Fabulous in white onto strips of black card. The SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate set includes 4 small decorative shaped dies, and so I used the heart and star circles for this card.  A few gold sequins and it was done!

SugarPea April 2018 Release: Day 2

Hi everyone and welcome to the second day of the SugarPea Designs April 2018 release sweet peeks!

Today we are showcasing 3 new release products that I had the privilege of illustrating/designing: SugarCut - LondonScape, SugarCut - ParisScape, and Chic Wishes stamp set.


To begin, I cut a 4x25x5.5" stitched rectangle from white card using the largest die in the previously released SugarCut - Card Front Element Builder die set.  I then stamped the cluster of teeny tiny stars from the *NEW* Chic Wishes stamp set multiple times at the top of the panel using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using clear EP.  I inked the panel with Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw distress inks.  I die cut 2 LondonScapes from mid grey and light grey card, and then created a street scene using a future die set (yes, you're getting a very, very early peek, lol!) from dark grey card.  Glued them together, added the "cheers, mate" sentiment from the Chic Wishes stamp set heat embossing in white, and then popped up the panel using foam pads for dimension. Another easy and quick card!

SugarPea Designs Apr 2018 Release: Day 1

Hi everyone and welcome to the first day of the SugarPea Designs April 2018 release sweet peeks!

We hope you’ll join us over the next 5 days as we share Sweet Peeks for our NEWEST products, available to purchase in the SPD Store from this Friday, April 20th at 6PM EST.

For my card, I used our *brand new* coverplate die set: SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate


I love how quick and easy it was to create this card!  I started by covering the front of a 4.25x5.5" base card with a piece of paper from the Spots & Stripes - Pastels paper pad.  No trimming required as all SPD paper pads are already the size of the card front - easy peasy! I then cut the largest of the 2 postage stamps from the SugarCut - Postage Stamp Cover Plate die set from white card, added some flicks of gold glitter spray, then popped it onto the card front.  The heart was die cut from the same paper using the stitched heart die from the same die set, then I cut a couple of Xs and Os from gold glitter paper, along with the "sending" word.  I added the Xs and Os to a strip of black card and popped it up on foam pads for dimension.  A few gold sequins and it was done! 

Here are the brand new products we are peeking today:

SugarPea Designs: 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop


Welcome to the SugarPea Designs 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop!

I can't tell you how much I love being a member of the SPD Design Team.   It has also been an absolute honour, pleasure and privilege for me to have illustrated and designed stamps, dies and paper pads for Wendy since 2014.  I can't quite believe it's been that long - time really does fly when you're having fun!  I adore Wendy - she is the most amazing person, wonderful friend and fantastic boss.  I LOVE working with and for her, and it just thrills my heart to see her amazing company grow and to be celebrating SugarPea's 4th anniversary today!

For my card, I used lots of sentiments from the Celebrate All The Things stamp set together with the coordinating SugarCut - Celebrate die to create a graphic style card, suitable for any age or gender:


My 4.25x5.5" stitched rectangle was die cut from white card using the largest die from the SugarCut – Card Front Element Builder die set.  I inked a piece of white card with some Tim Holtz distress inks and then die cut the SugarCut - Celebrate word twice. All the sentiments are from the Celebrate All The Things stamp set and the gold glittery stars were die cut using the SugarCut – Scattered Stars Journal Card die.
