It Moose be your Birthday - SugarPea Designs Mix it Up Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
Well by now, it's become apparent that I love SugarPea Designs.  Because of this love affair, I decided to join the challenge.  It's a mix it up, you can either do both or one or the other :)  I chose to sort of combine the two.  My colors don't match perfectly, but I liked the store logo of SugarPea with it's pinks and greens, so I chose those instead!

I colored the Moose from Merry Christmoose in Copics.  I used my stitched circles from Lawn Fawn to cut the image and a background circle in green.  I layered everything on Kraft from Neenah called Dessert Storm.

Last, I added some Stardust Stickles to the trees and background for some glimmer.  Make sure to join the Mix-it Up challenge at SugarPea designs.  They have so many adorable stamps and you can win prizes too.  Check out all the details HERE.

The Highest Branch - SugarPea Designs

Hi ya everyone!
Well as you know, I'm addicted to SugarPea Designs adorable little stamps.  I can't get enough of those cute characters and the adorable sentiments that come with each set.  This is an exclusive stamps set sold through Simon Says Stamp for the Stamptember 2017 release called Koalaty Time.  I saw a few of the gorgeous design team samples and knew I wanted them!  I colored this cutie with Copics on Desert Storm Neenah 80lb card stock.  I also stamped the image on two shades of green card stock and on yellow.  I fussy cut the leaves and butterfly and adhered them with multi mat medium.


The hearts that also come with the set were stamped in versamagic ink!  I just love this set and SugarPea Designs!!!  Sadly, this stamp set has been sold out.  However, you can find a lot more of their cuties HERE!

Heard You Were Dragon - My Favorite Things

Hi ya everyone!
Today, I'm sharing an adorable card made using My Favorite Things stamp set called, BB Magical Dragons.  I love this cute little set and the sentiments are so fun.  I stamped the dragon in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Xpress It paper and colored him in Copics.
I love to add little dots in various colors and in colorless blender to give him an adorable textured appearance.  I simply popped him up on a piece of Bo Bunny paper.  I also added my favorite enamel dots from Whimsy, Summer Breeze, to the top.
Hope you have a great day!

Happy Howl-o-ween - SugarPea Designs


Hi ya everyone!
Today I'm sharing a Halloween creation using these cuties from SugarPea Designs.  I love this set, Monster Mash with matching dies that includes all the characters you see above, the sentiment and much more.  The pumpkins came from another SugarPea Designs set called Fall Fox.


I used the no lines coloring technique in which I stamped the images on XPress It paper with Angel Pink Memento ink.  The hills were cut with Stitched Hillside borders from Lawn Fawn.  The background web paper was from Echo Park called the Apothecary Emporium.  I inked the paper with Black Soot and Faded Jeans distress inks.  Lastly, I added the stardust stickles to the background for some stars!


I hope you enjoy my card.  Make sure to check out SugarPea Designs and all their adorable stamp sets!  I just love them.

The Cream in My Coffee - Whimsy Stamps

Hi ya everyone!
Occasionally, I like to make a simple card that is a bit masculine.  I typically have a hard time with cards that are darker in color and have a more plain feel.  However, Whimsy Stamps has made that easy for me!!  For this card, I used the clear stamp set called Coffee Break.  I also used VersaMagic Chalk Ink and white paper.  That's pretty much it but for the circle surrounding the sentiment.
I stamped the beans and coffee rings in two brown colors, Jumbo Java (ironically) and Sahara Sand.  I stamped the coffee mug in Ocean Depth.  The sentiment was curved along the top of the circle cut (one of the GREAT things about clear sentiments) and stamped in the Jumbo Java.  This was such a fun card to make and simple too.  I didn't have the appropriate papers, so I made them!!!!

A Very Unicorn Birthday - Whimsy Stamps

Hi ya everyone!
I'm back today with a simple creation using the adorable Unicorn Magic by Kirsten Winkelbauer from Whimsy Stamps!  I love this image and thought it might be perfect for my 7yr. old daughters upcoming 8th birthday.

I used the following Copics to color the image:
Skin/Hair:  E000, E00, E11, E15, R20, R22, E70, E71, E74, RV11, RV14
Shirt:  B21, B24, B26
Unicorn:  C00, C1, C3, Y32, Y28, B21, B24, B26, RV11, RV13, RV14, YG03, YG05, YG09
Stars/Sky:  Y32, Y28, E15, BG0000, BG000
Once I finished coloring her I looked for plain papers that matched my image and layered a bluc and pink.  I finished the card off by using a number of different flowers and flourishes.  Lastly, I used my soft colored enamel dots, It's a Party, from Whimsy to add a pretty soft touch.
Make sure to check out Whimsy Stamps today!  Also, Whimsy is having an Anything Goes challenge so I linked up.  Make sure if you create something Whimsy you join this fun challenge!
