Sugar Pea Designs Creative Color Challenge #7

I am playing along with the Sugar Pea Designs Creative Color Challenge today. It is a really pretty color combination!

The wreath is created with the Funky Wreath – All Seasons Stamp Set and the SugarCuts – Funky Wreath All Seasons. I tied a bow at the top and added clear rhinestones to the wreath. 

The circle behind the wreath is die cut with the SugarCuts – Zig Zag Stitched Circles. 

The sentiment is from the Funky Wreath – Christmas. I stamped the sentiment is a pigment ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. The pattern paper is from the Christmas Wonderland 6 x 6 Paper Pad - Carta Bella.

Gift Tags with Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US Friends! 

I am popping in today to share a few Christmas Tags that I created with some new products from Pretty Pink Posh. I am going to try to get my wrapping done early this year and I love that I have quite a few tags ready to go. 

My first tag is created with the Winter Friends Stamp Set. I used the Mini Tags Dies to add smaller tags to the top of each of the larger tags.

I did some masking to create the stamped image. First I stamped the hat, then the teddy bear, and then the stocking. The stocking is paper pieced and I stamped the holly leaves from the stamp set. The tag is framed with the smaller die in the Scallop Frames Dies. The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

On the next tag I created a pocket for a gift card by adhering card stock distressed with ink to the frame and then attaching an additional rectangle piece of card behind the frame using 1/4" tape and leaving the top open. The cup is colored with Copics and I added a few sequins from the 4mm Whimsical Forest Sequins Mix.

The coffee cup and holly leaves are die with the Winter Friends Coordinating Dies.

On the last tag I created a little shaker tag with the Stitched Photo Frames Dies. I stamped a sentiment from the Winter Friends Stamp Set multiple times and embossed with a gold embossing ink. I added a piece of acetate behind the frame, then form tape to form the shaker and dropped in sequins from the 4mm Classic Christmas Sequins Mix. The die cut Christmas Tree finishes  off the tag. 

Hope you have a wonderful day! 

Here are the Pretty Pink Posh Products I used to create my tags.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Reminder- Foxy

There is still time to join us in the Foxy Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge !  You have until November 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

Here's my take on the challenge. 

I didn't have any Foxy stamps or dies in my stash but I did come across paper with cute, little foxes! The top portion of the card is embossed with the Bead Board Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions and I added gold, glitter tape across the center. 

The wreath is created with the Funky Wreath – All Seasons Stamp Set and the coordinating SugarCuts – Funky Wreath All Seasons. The background of the circle is watercolored and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh

Thanks for stopping by! Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge for all the details.

Sugar Pea Designs SPD22 - Home for the Holidays

It’s time for the monthly theme challenge over the the Sugar Pea Designs Blog. This month the theme is Home for the Holidays

For the challenge I created three quick and easy tags that will dress up any package or gift bag. 

I used the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die for the base of all three cards.

I colored one of the cute elves from the Merry Makers Stamp Set with Copic Markers and die cut the stamped image with the coordinating Merry Makers Sugar Cuts. The elf is layered on a circle cut with the Zig Zag Stitched Circles Sugar Cuts.

The sentiment strip and "to" are included in the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die.

My second tag is stamped with the new Santa's Gift Tag Stamp Set with coordinates with the Gift Tag – Sugar Cuts Die.

On the last tag I stamped a sentiment from the Funky Wreath – Christmas Stamp Set in Delicate Golden Glitz Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. The holly leaves are cut with die in the SugarCuts – Funky Wreath Christmas.

Stop by the Sugar Pea Designs Blog for all the details and the list of designers sharing projects for the challenge!

Lick the Bowl

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was really busy including the celebration of my youngest daughter's birthday. 

Today I have a card to share created with some new products for Taylored Expressions

The mixer, spoon, and sentiment are stamped with the Life is a Kitchen Stamp Set and die cut with the coordinating Life is a Kitchen Dies. The sentiment is stamped in white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

The patterned paper is from the Simple Stories 6x6 pad - We are Family.

The background is created with the new Basket Weave Cutting Plate. I love the look of the basket weave pattern. I finished off with a few enamel dots. 

Thanks for looking!
