Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment!

This week’s card uses Distress Inks in two different ways – blended and watercoloured. I started by using two of the edge dies included in Card Front Element Builder to create a wave shape out of watercolour cardstock.

I blended 3 colours of Distress Inks on the wave and then spritzed it with water to create texture and interest.

Next, I stamped some of the otters from Otterly Adorable with black pigment ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder. This helps to create ‘walls’ for the watercolour when painting. When I’m painting with Distress Inks, I get the paper wet first and then lay in the colour, moving it until I’m happy with the shading.

I added another panel of watercolour cardstock blended with the darker shades of blues directly to my card base and then popped up the wave. I cut out the otters with the matching dies and then adhered and added some star fish.

For the sentiment, I cut out the smallest Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle and then used a stamp positioner to ensure proper placement.

Here’s a quick video:

Hi there! Kerin here with you today. I hope you enjoyed the new release last week! One of my favorite products from the new release is the Hello SugarCut. Did you know that this is the “Sweet Incentive” item for this release? That means that you will get this fabulous die included with your order of $60 or more (excluding discounts or s&h) absolutely free! I am finding that I want to add this die cut to every card I make lately!!

For the card above I began with a piece of white card stock (4-1/4 x 5-1/4″), then sponged on Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon. I spritzed on some water and distress ink and while it was drying I die cut six Hello SugarCut pieces out of black card stock. I adhered them to the colored background using a glue stick.

Then, I cut the scalloped edge using the new Card Front Element Builder SugarCut. Oh I love the combination of a scalloped edge and stitching! This was an easy way to get the hellos right to the edge and perfectly cut along with the scalloped edge!

Finally I adhered my card front onto white and black card stock to make it pop! Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve created a card with no stamping!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi peeps! Vera here today. How’s it going? Hopefully by now you have some of our new release in your hands and you are creating a storm with them. Or maybe they’re still on the way. Either way, how about some more inspiration for the new goodies?

I love working with flowers and the new Pretty Peonies set is hard to resist, so naturally my card today is using this set.

I want to achieve soft look for this card and keep that in mind as I work on my card. Start by die-cutting the background using the Large Striped Cover Plate and adhere them to the card base. Then the fun part, stamp, color and cut out the flowers and arrange on the card base.

I curved the flowers a bit to create dimension and adhere them to the card, part directly to the card using regular adhesive and the other part popped with pop dots. I often prefer to do this rather than pop everything. It create extra depth in my opinion. Die cut the sentiment using Sympathy dies and stamp the sentiment from one of the sentiment from Heartfelt Sympathy set.

Granted, sympathy card is not the type of card we like to make, but I find making them when I don’t need it is easier then when I actually need it.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card. Thank you for stopping by here and thank you for all your support for SugarPea Designs. Have a blessed day everyone. Cheers….

Hello everyone! Lexa here today with a card that highlighting the new release products,, Sugarcut Card Front Element Builder, Sugarcut Hello, Otterly Adorable Stamps and the coordinating dies. Let’s get started…

There’s this one sentiment from Otterly Adorable stamps that makes me giggle and really want to use it. I mixed it with Hello word dies along with two super cute otters. The images are stamped with Versafine black ink and watercolored with Distress Markers.

First, I make a 4.25″x5.5″ card base and create a window with the scallop rectangle dies from Card Front Element Builder. I blended Distress Inks for the background in Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean. The contrast between blue and pink create a cheerful atmosphere. Here’s a closer look to see how adorable they are..

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you like today’s card as much as I do. Have a wonderful week you guys!

I started my card by die cutting a white card stock panel using the SugarCut – Large Striped Cover Plate (introduced Wednesday) and layering behind it purple polka dotted patterned paper from the Spots & Stripes Pastel paper pad.

 

I stamped both of my images from the Better Together set in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut with the coordinating die and colored them with Copics. This duo is just so adorable, that I decided to make things a little more fun by adding Mini Action Wobblers to the backs of each image before adhering them to the card panel.

 

I heat embossed a scrap piece of cardstock with gold embossing powder and then die cut it with the SugarCut – You word die – to pair with the stamped sentiment from Better Together. Finally, a little Wink Of Stella and a thick coat of Glossy Accents was added to create shine and dimension to the jar of jelly.

Today we are introducing…

 

Having to send your condolences is never easy. With over 15 thoughtful and sincere sentiment choices, Heartfelt Sympathy will help you to find the right words to express your loving thoughts during a difficult time.

 

_

 

 

SugarCut – Sympathy is a stand-alone word die features a thin and dainty sentiment that can be used as a focal point on your card front or paired with a stamped sentiment. Designed to be used together with our Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set (sold separately) for quick, easy and professional paper crafting projects.

This is the type of card that we all hate to make, and yet when we need one, we really want it to be just right. For this sympathy card I kept it very simple. I used the medium sized bloom in the Pretty Peonies stamp set.

I began with a watercolored splash of color, once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the main flower image in Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW Gold Embossing Powder. The beautiful scripted sentiment is the new SugarCut Sympathy word die cut multiple times and glued together for dimension.  I kept the design simple and cut each of the watercolor panels with the different elements from the SugarCut Card Front Element Builder and adhered to white cardstock card bases.
