Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop for SugarPea Designs


Today is our Sweet2Repeat blog hop! I am SO excited to share my simple, last minute Christmas cards I created for my Christmas stash! I cut some white paper to 2.5" x 4". Then I stamped the boughs and the cones and added some berries with my red Copic marker. The sentiment is also stamped in red. 


Then I embossed the white card base and added a red layer behind my stamped panels. I popped them up onto dimensionals and used some gold washi tape for the bottom of each card.

Viva La Verve {November Sketch}-Let it Snow


Friday is here! Hooray! Today the new Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge starts and Julee has a wonderful new sketch, full of great layers! I LOVED it and just had to play along! I decided to ink up a fun Christmas set Julee released last year called Jolly Jingles! I love the snowman and decided to turn him into a snow "woman"; complete with pink top hat! 


My white panel with the snowgal looked a little bare, so I inked up the snowflakes in the set and stamped them in Coastal Cabana. The papers were actually chosen first and I was going to colour a Verve floral image for my card but when I saw the Christmas set. I knew it was time to get ahead on my Christmas cards!


Then I finished it off with a snowflake and some pink glitter twine. Easy peasy!

Be sure to join us this month at Viva la Verve Sketch ChallengeThe link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a winner on November 2 to win a $40 gift voucher to Verve.

Happy birthday, Wendy!!! Surprise!! We are having a Birthday blog hop in your honour! I used "Tropic Like It's Hot" and Sweet Sentiments-You to create a fun, Fall birthday themed card for you! 

One of the greatest things that has ever happened to me artistically is being chosen by Wendy to design for SugarPea Designs. I was floored and so delighted to be chosen to join the team. I have been on the team for a few years now and I love it! Wendy is generous, gracious and lovely! Oh and she has a wicked sense of humour! She is a dear friend!

October 2017 Viva la Verve Sketch


Have you seen the great sketch at Viva la Verve? Oh it's a fun one...simple yet elegant! I decided to ink up my newest Verve set called the Autumn Leaves stamp set and the Falling Leaves die set. 


I stamped the leave in Burgundy, Yellow and Green and then stamped their veins in a dark gray overtop...I purposely did not line up the leaves with their veins as I wanted to give the card a more "freestyle" whimsical feel.


You should come and join the fun at Viva la Verve
There is a great prize up for grabs! The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a winner on November 2 to win a $40 gift voucher to Verve.

SugarPea Designs-Holiday Product Release Day 3



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Holiday Product Release! Today we are featuring my two favourite sets! I love the boughs and the pine cones and the snowflakes are super delicate!


I love using both traditional and non-traditional colours on cards. This snowflake card will be easy to mass produce. I think I will skip the top layer and just do a single layer card for my other cards. I love that you could use any colour combo! Pink and greens are so pretty together for Christmas!


When I work with boughs and cones, I love adding layers. The new paper pad from the last release called "Spots and Stripes" has the perfect RED paper in it! 

I stamped the boughs in a dark green and then stamped again without re-inking the bough...that way I got the nice faded look I wanted.
