Reverse Confetti - Trick Or Treat

Hello, Hello!  I am sharing a card I made with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I decided to go with a candy corn color them to show off the script Trick or Treat.   

I started with a white background using the Triangles Cover Panel and layered onto a white card base.   I used the Stitched Squares Confetti Cut and die cut it out of Bumblebee, Tangerine and Cloud White card stock.   I layered the squares together.   I die cut the Trick or Treat from Midnight card stock and layered on top of Stitched Squares.  

 To follow the sketch, I stamped one of the monsters from Monsterous and the bats from Halloween Gnomes onto Lead card stock with white pigment ink.    I added them to the card with foam tape.    To finish the card off, I put a few white enamel Nuvo Drops.   

Here is the link to the current sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch #344.

SugarPea Designs - Christmas Cheer

Hello there!   I am here today to share a holiday card made with the new Christmas Cheer stamp set from SugarPea Designs.   This stamp set is just adorable!   There are some really sweet images in this stamp set.  I just love the little baby owls.     

I stamped my images onto Neenah card stock and then colored with my Copic markers.    For my background, I used Distress Oxide Inks in Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire.   I love the bright blue against the white snow drift created with the Card Front Element Builder SugarCut.    

SugarPea Designs is donating 20% of the sales of this stamp set to the Alzheimers Association!  Wendy Ramlakhan and Vera Yates designed this stamp set for the Caring Hearts Card Drive which you can find more information about here!   Shop for the Christmas Cheer stamp set on the SugarPea Designs blog! 

I used the Card Front Element Builder II SugarCut and ran both my Distressed Oxide panel and the white panel for the pierced details.    I decided to add some snowflakes using two SugarCuts:   Whatever the Weather and the Floral Pocket Tag.    I die cut them from white cardstock that had some Stick It adhesive on the back to make them really easy to adhere.  

I also die cut the SugarCut Joy from red and white cardstock.  
I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer stamp set and then added my images with foam adhesive.    For a finishing touch, I tied some red and white twine around the top of the card.   

  Thank you for joining me today!

Reverse Confetti - October Blog Hop - Peace on Earth

It's time for the Reverse Confetti October Blog Hop!   We are sharing tons of inspiration with you today.   I have a super cute Christmas card to share with you today.

You should have hopped over to me from Amy Kolling's blog.

One of my favorite stamp sets from the September release is Joyous Holiday.   I just love these little angels, they are so precious.   I love old vintage Christmas cards and if you have ever looked at them, you know that there are so many with angel images.   Here are a couple that inspired me to make this card: 

Can I See My Lord Too Cross Stitch Pattern PDF

To start, I stamped out the angel, manger and mouse from Joyous Holiday and the lamb from Spring Pals onto Premier Polar White cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.    I then die cut them out with the Joyous Holiday and Spring Pals Confetti Cuts.   Next to build my scene I die cut Cloud White cardstock with the Pierced Round Top Layers using the largest die.   I stamped three of the trees from Triangle Trees using Seafoam and Iced Aqua inks.    To ground the images, I used the Elemental Strips stamp set and stamped the dashed lines in Stone ink. 

I determined my placement for all the images onto the Pierced Round Top Layer.  Behind the angel, I stamped the illumination mark from the Christmas Candles stamp set using Buttercup ink.     I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Candles at the top of the panel.   I just love the script in this set.   I used the other sentiment in the stamp set and stamped that onto the interior of the card panel.   The card panel is made from Stone cardstock.   

I popped up all my images with some foam tape.   I used some of the thinner foam from Scrapbook Adhesives to have the manager a little inset in the Christmas scene.    I loved how soft the card turned out.   I added some final details with my white gel pen and a clear sparkle pen.   I love being able to mix and match my stamps together.  If you have never used Reverse Confetti papers, I am a big fan of the Premier Polar White to color with Copics and I love the weight of the cardstock.    Cloud White and Stone are more of my favorite colors.  The Cloud White has a slight texture to it and is the softest white.   Just gorgeous!

SugarPea Designs - Mix It Up Challenge - Sweet as Pie

Hello!   I love this time of year and so excited that it is now October!   This is one of my most favorite month's of the year.  With a new month, there is a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs!   You can use the sketch or the inspiration photo or mix it up and do a combination of them.    Once I saw the inspiration photo, I knew that I wanted to use the new Sweet as Pie stamp set.  

I stamped the images from the set out onto Neenah cardstock and colored with my Copic markers.   I then die cut them out with the Sweet as Pie SugarCut.   I created an apple pie, cherry pie and pumpkin pie!  YUM! 

I used the new Buffalo Check stamp and stamped on some light grey cardstock with light grey ink and then die cut it with the Postage Stamp SugarCut.    I layered this onto a kraft card base.   To layer my pies, I die cut some Neenah cardstock with the Zig Zag Stitched Circle SugarCut and then added my pies with some foam tape.   I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet as Pie stamp set onto some black cardstock and white heat embossed it.    I added some final touches with Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a clear sparkle pen.    

I hope that you will play along with the challenge this month!  See the box above for the Challenge Rules and chance to win!   Thank you so much for stopping by!

Here Comes Santa - SugarPea Designs

Hey there!   Tricia here with you today and I am all in the holiday spirit!   I just love the new Holiday release so much and it has really gotten me in the mood for creating holiday cards.   Christmas Characters is so adorable and it is so much fun to use.    

Instead of putting Santa on a tag, I decided to make him the focal point of my card!   I did the traditional colors for Santa and just used plain cardstock.  They are so easy and fun to put together.   Once I put him together,  I popped him up on my card panel with foam tape.  I could see repeating this design with several of the Christmas Characters. 

For my background, I used the new Oh So Jolly sentiments and stamped them repeatedly and white embossed them on black cardstock.   I covered the black cardstock with an embossing buddy to ensure that I don't get the stray embossing powder.   I used the largest die from the Card Front Element Builder and added the stitched details to the edges of the card panel.   I decided to add this to a kraft card base.    I tied some red and white twine around the top of the card.   

For the sentiment, I used the Everyday Sentiments and stamped the Merry Christmas and die cut it out with the Sentiment Strips.  I white heat embossed the sentiment as well.    To finish off the card, I used Christmas Red Stickles to the holly berries.  

Thank you for joining me today!   I hope that I have given you some inspiration to start your holiday crafting!

SugarPea Designs - Simon Says Stamptember

Happy Stamptember peeps!   Isn't it one of the most wonderful months of the year!   There has been so much inspiration and one fabulous month long release!    I am sharing the SugarPea Design and Simon Says Stamp collaboration stamp and die set called Nordic Village.

This set is super adorable, I just love the cute little houses that you create a snowy village scene!  I had visions of a Swedish Ski destination with lot's of snowy hills and trees!   I love the church and all the different trees that come with the set!  I decided to make a slimline card for my scene and have really steep slopes for skiing!   

I started by ink blending with Distress Ink Oxides in Pine Needles, Evergreen Baugh and Cracked Pistachio.   Once it was completely dry, I stenciled on some white embossing pasted with the Falling Snow Stencil.   I used the Card Front Element Builder with one of the border dies and created by ski slopes.   To the very bottom panel, I stamped Merry Christmas from Nordic Village in red ink and then stamped the from Our Home to Yours in black ink just below it.   I took a red and white tiny strip of Spots & Stripes in Brights and added it to the bottom of the card panel.   

I stamped all my images out using the collaboration Nordic Village onto watercolor cardstock and clear heat embossed them.   I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color the images.   I stamped out some of the trees with the Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink.   All the images were then die cut with the Nordic Village die cuts.    The final measurements of the card are 3 3/4 inches by 8 1/2 inches.

That is it for me today!    Remember, this stamp set is a limited release - so hurry to get the SugarPea Designs and Simon Says Stamp Collaboration before it sells out!    

Happy Stamptember!
