You're My Hero


Hi ya everyone!

Today I've done something a bit different for my Imagine project.  The team all made a creation with directions and then swapped the directions!  Then we completed a project following the directions only with no pictures/images.  Mine came from the extremely talented Kassandra Tousignant.  You can visit her blog here:  Kassy's Parlour

I also created a video of my process for the Imagine blog!  I mention all the products I use in the video.  Please visit Imagine, Whimsy Stamps and SugarPea Designs for the products used.

You are so Loved - SugarPea Designs



Hi ya everyone!  Today, I'm guest designing for SugarPea Designs and I’m super excited to share a simple project with you using one of my favorite stamp sets, Pretty Peonies.  The sentiments that come with the images are perfect and the font is so pretty. 
Today, I did something a little different, in that I created the same card twice, one on white cardstock and one on kraft card. The style looks very different even though it’s the same design.


First, I stamped the image in Versafine Clair Nocturne on white cardstock.  Then I colored the image with my Prisma Pencils.  I used the same colors on both the white and kraft.  However, you can see below, how different the looks really are.

Once the images were colored I used the SugarCut Postage Stamp to cut the edges and then placed both on an A2 base with the same color as card used to color.  I think the outcome is beautiful and it shows the versatility of your stamps!

Whimsy Stamps Paper Door Monthly Kit

https://whimsystamps.com/collections/paper-door


I hope you've had a chance to check out the new April Paper Door kit.  I'm telling you, this kit is packed full of goodness; from Distress Markers to an embossing folder to materials for a shaker card.  Oh, and that's not even mentioning the GORGEOUS papers that come with this kit. I am a huge fan of the color blue...and this paper, with the amazing sparkle, is seriously to die for :)



The paper was the big inspiration for this card.  I did sneak outside the kit to use the new grass and cloud edger die from Whimsy Stamps, but seriously, the paper made this card.  Check it out!





The blues are just too amazing together!  I also used the sentiment from the stamp set that comes in the kit as well as the black cardstock for the base.  There are so many beautiful inspiration projects that the team has put together for this new kit.  If you'd like to see them all, just click on the Paper Door tag at the bottom of this post.



If you'd like to order your own kit, just click the Paper Door image below!

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek - Day 2

http://sugarpeadesigns.com/blog/

Welcome to Day 2 of the Sweet Peeks at SugarPea Designs.  I LOVE today's release.  The city scape die cuts are truly amazing and so much fun to use!  There are two; London and Paris.  My first thought when I saw the Paris die was an evening out in Paris.  Who wouldn't want to walk around a city like Paris at night on a warm summer evening?!  I would love to.


I created the night sky with the little stars that are part of the Chic Wishes stamp set that we are also peeking at today!  You can see that in my picture above too!  It has so many beautiful sentiments.  The stars that come with the set are perfect for creating a night sky too.

Remember, all the new stamps and dies will be released in the SugarPea Designs shop this Friday at 6pm.  Don't forget to hop to each blog and leave a comment for your chance to win some of the new release!
