Don’t you just LOVE the rich colors of Fall?  For my card, I stamped the larger maple leaf from the Lovely Leaves stamp set three times and cut each one out with the coordinating SugarCuts die.  I then sponged various ink colors over the stamped/die cut leaves until I was happy with the colors.  Using the maple leaf die again, I cut into the kraft cardstock panel and then inlaid the leaves stamped/sponged leaves.  I finished by heat embossed the sentiment in a gorgeous gold.

Barn-To-Be-Wild-2

I know I say it all the time, but this may be my favorite release ever.  If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only have 1 stamp set to play with forever…this would be the one.  There are so many adorable images and puny sentiments I would never be bored with this set.

For my card I started out by creating a sweet farm scene background with the new SugarCuts – FarmScape die and then sponged ink on white cardstock to create a sunset.

The tiny circles that are the negative space in the windmill made for perfectly sized little apples for my tree!!  I colored all of the images with Copics and then cut them with the coordinating SugarCuts – Barn To Be Wild die set.

Barn-To-Be-Wild-3

And the coordinating, Best of Cluck stamp set is just as equally fun to play with.

Best-Of-Cluck1

Best-of-Cluck2

I LOVE the chicken wire paper from the Countryside Charm paper pad.  I cut it with the SugarCuts – Heart Journal Card die to create a panel for my image.  I then heat embossed my favorite sentiment in white onto one of the SugarCuts – Stitched Flags and then perched one of the hen images at the end. And the best part…Best of Cluck is FREE when you purchase $60 or more from August 26th – October 1st.*

Hello, Lisa here today with my Light Bulb Moment.

I have a fun and unique Get Well tissue box card to share with you.

This card looks like a tissue box.

 It stands on its own.

 And folds up flat to mail.

(Just make sure the recipient knows to fold the card back and forth a little to get it to stand after being in the envelope for awhile)

 I started with a 4 1/4 by 11″ piece of cardstock and scored from the left along the long side

at 4 1/4, 5 1/4, 9 1/2 and 10 1/2 then folded all the score lines with my bone folder.

 Next, I used a piece of SPD’s Patterned Paper Collection from the It’s A Celebration pack.

I cut a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4″ panel for the front and a 4 1/4 x 1″ panel for the top and adhered them to the card base.

I cut the slot for the tissue using the rounded slot die from SugarCuts – Layered Treat Labels die set from the top of the card.

I cut a piece of regular tissue in half, put through the slot to my liking then adhered using the double sided tape across it (leaving the red plastic strip on).  I trimmed off the excess.  Then adhered the little tab to the inside of the card back!

Lastly, I cut a label using SugarCuts – Layered Treat Labels die and heat embossed the cute and fun sentiment from Blow Me Away.  I adhered it flat to the card front keeping it mail friendly.

Patterned Paper Collection - It's a Celebration

Hi there, SugarPea Peeps! Vera here today.

Inspired-by-Sweetness-Vera

When it comes to SugarPea Designs, I am a big fan of their cute critter sets, which I used for today’s card.

I am always in need of birthday card, so here’s my card featuring the sweet kitty from Smitten Kitten set.

For the background, I used the festive sheet from It’s A Celebration Patterned Paper Collection. To enhance the balloons a bit I added some glitters on them. For dimension on the cat, I adhere the bottom part of the card directly on the panel and add pop dot for the top part. I like making my card with variety of depth. 🙂

That’s all from me today, but stay tune for our new releases that’s coming next week!

Hello, SugarPea Friends.

Today we are saying a fond farewell to five of our extremely talented design team members.   They have been with SPD from the very start and have each contributed immensely to SugarPea Designs through their creativity and talent.

These ladies have truly been inspirational in their imaginative uses of our beloved SugarPea Designs stamps and SugarCuts – but more importantly, I have the pleasure and privilege to call each of these ladies my friend.  I will forever be grateful for the time they’ve spent with SPD.

Please join us in wishing these five fabulous ladies the very best in their future endeavors!

Farewell Post

Thanks again ladies! We will miss you!

Hello SugarPea friends!

Inspired-by-Sweetness-AmyK

Amy K. here to share a quick and easy Birthday card using the amazing It’s a Celebration Paper Pad from SugarPea Designs.


Aug15 
I started with using the pink ombre paper from the It’s a Celebration pad that has candles at the bottom.  I used the Birthday Journal Card Dies for cutting my layers which made it easy to “trim” off the candles at the bottom and just use the ombre paper!  I added my layers to my white, top folding notecard using a SugarPuff Foam Sheet.


I cut the cut cake from pink cardstock and stamped the white stripes using the Bring on the Cake stamp set using white pigment ink.  I adorned the cake with the flower dies from Birthday Journal Card Dies.  My sentiment, from Celebrate all the Things, was stamped onto a pierced banner from Gift Tag Sugar Cuts.  I added a few mini sparkling clear sequins to finish this off.

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

Hi, Lisa here today with my Light Bulb Moment.

I have fun little USA Hershey Kiss favors during the Rio Olympics.

I saw these fun USA Hershey kisses in the store and racked my brain for how to make a little treat holder using these and this is what I came up with.

The star die in the SugarCuts Gift Tag set creates the perfect patriotic window for these.

Just a little twine finishes them off.

I started with a 1 1/8 x 4 1/2 piece of cardstock.

I scored at 1 1/8, 2 1/4 and 3 3/8.  (Because of the odd measurements I used my ruler to draw my score lines then just put them along a groove in my scor-pal to score.)  I put adhesive as shown above.

I tiny bit of adhesive on the third square from the top was to adhere the kiss in place.

Then I just folded it up then added a piece of twine.

These work perfect on your dinner plate, pass out to your kids while watching the Olympics, adorn your party table etc.  I sent them to work with my husband to share with co-workers.

Hi SugerPea Fans!

Isha here today 🙂 I’m sharing this Galaxy Background Card with you. The focal element is a little cluster of dots and stars from the “Bring on the Cake” stamp set. I also used the “SugarCuts-Party Banner Duo”.

I started with cutting the mat layer using the “Zig Zag Stitched Circle” die. After that, I stamped the star cluster from the “Bring on the Cake” set using Distress Inks. For the galaxy background, I used Distress Inks and shimmer spritz. Then, I stamped and embossed the star cluster.

I die-cut and adhered the banner, stamped the sentiment and assembled everything together. To finish, I adhered some sequins from the shop.

Here are a few more photos 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and have a sweet day!
