Hi SugarPeeps!! We are all so excited about today’s special release!!
This special release has been almost a year in the making. Vera Yates, Chaitali Narla and I have been busily working behind the scenes putting together a special mini release for this years upcoming Caring Hearts Card Drive. I have really loved working together with these amazing and generous ladies.
This will be the 7th year that Vera (the mastermind behind the card drive) and her team of volunteers will set out to collect handmade cards from October 1st to November 25th to give to those that live in nursing homes across the country. Vera will have all of the details up on her blog (HERE) starting on October 1st.
We’re going to kick things off like we do any other release, with one little twist…EVERYTHING is available for purchase in the store NOW!
The first four introductions are part of our SugarPlum Collection designed by Chaitali Narla. Chaitali generously donated her time and talent designing these stamps and dies especially for the Caring Hearts card drive.
Caring Hearts is a 4×6 stamp set full of versatile images and sentiments making it the perfect set when you want to show friends and family just how much you care.
Show your love and gratitude with the SugarCuts – Heart Beat die. This unique and fun stand alone border die will make a lovely accent to your any of your paper-crafting projects!
We think that being kind is always a good idea. Kindness Matters is a 4×6 mix and match sentiment stamp set that is perfect for any spreading a little kindness in the world. These uplifting sentiments will work nicely on the inside or outside of your next project and were designed to coordinate with the SugarCuts – Kindness word die (sold separately).
SugarCuts – Kindness will be a welcome addition to your die collection. The stand alone word die features a chunky and playful font that can be used as a focal point on your card front or paired with a stamped sentiment.
From our SugarDoodle Collection comes, Caring Critters. Sharing is caring, and these adorable critters are are just the thing to help you share a little token of love and friendship in your next paper-crafting project. These sweet and playful images are so much fun to color and are just right for adding to tags, cards, treats and more!
There’s so much to love about this release, but I would have to say that what I love the most, is how all SIX products work together so beautifully and effortlessly. So much so, I had a hard to choosing which ones I wanted to play with.
I chose a patterned paper from the Countryside Charm paper pad that I layered on a kraft card base. I sponged some Scattered Straw distress ink on white cardstock that I then cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle. The stitched rectangle panel was added to the card front with a layer of SugarPuff underneath to create dimension. I also cut the Kindness word from a sheet of SugarPuff to add texture and depth.
I stamped and colored the moose image from Caring Critters with Copic markers and then cut it out using the coordinating SugarCuts – Caring Critters die. Before adhering the image to the card front, I added a Mini Action Wobble Spring behind it for a little interactive fun. To finish things off I stamped a sentiment from the Kindness Matters stamp set in Black Soot under the word die.

This card drive is so dear to my heart and I am so honored to have played a part in designing these heartwarming stamps and dies. I’m very proud to say that SugarPea Designs will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the sale of the Caring Hearts stamp sets and dies to the Alzheimers Association.
