7KCF and Your Next Stamp

( ** Please scroll down for my SugarPea Designs post **)

Hello friends!  We have a new challenge that starts today over on the 7KCF Challenge Blog and our challenge is "anything goes", with an optional twist of "Christmas".




I used the Sweet Holiday Greetings stamp set from Your Next Stamp to make this CAS Christmas card.  I have used this adorable set a lot this holiday season!  I colored the images with copics and then cut them out using the coordinating Sweet Holiday Greetings die set.  My papers are from the Santa Express 6x6 Paper Pad from Doodlebug.

Products from the 7KCF Store:

Sweet Holiday Greetings clear stamp set from Your Next Stamp
Sweet Holiday Greetings die set from Your Next Stamp

SPD012 - Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday everyone!  We have a new challenge over on the SugarPea Designs Blog.  The challenge is "anything goes" ... can't get much easier than that, right?


Since I'm still in the Christmas-crafting mode, I decided to make a couple of mini gift bags.  These little bags will hold a gift card and maybe a few yummy chocolates too.  I used the Sweet Treats - Christmas and Layered Treat Labels stamp sets and red ink to make the tags for these bags.  Then I cut all the tags out using the Sugar Cuts Layered Treat Labels die.  I punched a couple of holes in the tops of the bags and used some seam binding tied in a bow to close the bags.  Now go grab your favorite stamps (we hope they're SugarPea Designs, but they don't have to be) and make a project to enter into our challenge.


We only have a few rules -

- Play along with any stamp you'd like.  Winner is chosen at random to keep things fair, but if the winner's projects features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the voucher to $15
- Feel free to combine our challenge with any other challenge(s)
- Upload to your blog or other online gallery using keyword: SPD012 so we can easily find your work
- Add your name and link to your card or project in the InLinkz on the SugarPea Designs Blog

SugarPea Designs' Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

( ** Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp post ** )
 

Welcome to the SugarPea Designs December Sweet 2 Repeat blog hop where we showcase our newest release! Now that you've had a chance to add these sweet sets to your SugarPea collection, we're bringing you even more inspiration!



I used Lost Without You from our Sugar Snap Collection.  I absolutely adore this little shepherd!  Rather than making a card, I decided to frame this little sweetie.  I picked up an inexpensive wood frame from a local craft shop and used Mod Podge to adhere the dp.  I then stamped the sentiment on the covered frame.  I used copics and colored pencils to color the image and fussy cut it.  I used pop dots to adhere him to the background dp. 






Thank you so much for stopping by.  Be sure to hop along and leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win $20 to spend in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe!   




Your Next Stamp - Fun Friday Challenge

Good morning and happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Fun Friday Challenge over on the Your Next Stamp Blog.


I used these adorable gingerbread from the Sweet Holiday Greetings clear stamp set.  I love this stamp set and I've used it to make lots of my holiday cards this year.  I colored these cuties with copics and colored pencils and then used the coordinating Sweet Holiday Greetings Die Set to cut them out.  I added a few gumdrops and used a glitter pen on the bows and buttons.


 

 
To enter the challenge you need to follow the sketch and/or the inspiration photo.  Be sure to stop by the Your Next Stamp Blog to read the challenge details and to see the beautiful projects by the rest of the DT!

7KCF & Your Next Stamp

( ** Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp post ** )

Good afternoon everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the 7KCF Blog.




7KCF is now carrying Your Next Stamp products so I chose the adorable Waddles - Snow Fun! clear stamp set for my card today.  I colored the image with copics and then used the coordinating Waddles - Snow Fun! Die Set to cut out the image.  I love that stamp companies offer the coordinating dies - it makes life so much easier lol!  I wanted a subtle dp so that the cute image would be the focal point, so I chose to use the Believe 6x6 paper pad from Authentique.  I added a few sequins to give the card some sparkle.  

 Product from the 7KCF Store:

Waddles - Snow Fun! Clear Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp
Waddles - Snow Fun! Die Set from Your Next Stamp
Believe 6x6 Paper Pad from Authentique
Solar White Smooth Classic Crest 80lb Cardstock from Neenah

I used the adorable Little Darling January for my card today.  I love this sweet little girl with her penguin!  I colored the images with copics and then fussy cut them.  I used a sentiment from the stamp set and added some sequins to create a shaker card.  I cut the snowdrift using the Forest Friends Scene Die Set.  There are lots of must-have dies in this set so be sure to check it out!

Merry Christmas To All

Happy hump day!  I'm so happy that we're halfway through this week -- I'm anxious for Friday to roll around!  I've had this Christmas card made for awhile now and thought I'd pop on here and share it today.




This is Art Impressions' Christmas To All stamp set.  I adore snowmen and had lots of fun coloring this one!  I colored him with copics and colored pencils and then used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to add some sparkle (which doesn't really show in the picture).  The cute sentiment is also part of this stamp set.  I added a few snowflakes and some shiny sequins.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hugs, Anita

SPDSS17 - From Our Home To Yours

Good morning everyone! We are starting a new sketch challenge today over on the SugarPea Designs Blog!




I used the trees and igloo from the Have An ICE Day clear stamp set.  This awesome set is from our 2014 Holiday Release!  Take a peek at the photo below and you'll see all the fabulous images that come in this set!  First I cut the tag from the Gift Tag - Sugar Cuts Die and stamped the trees on the tag.  Then I fussy cut the igloo and popped it with pop dots.  I added some Glamour Dust to the ground snow and the igloo for a frosty look.  My papers are from the Warm & Cozy 6x6 paper pad from Carta Bella.


The rules are simple:
   -   Create a new card or project using the SugarSketch provided
   -   SugarPea Design stamps are not required to play along or to win, but would be appreciated
