SugarPea Designs / Mix It Up Challenge #73

Cocoa and Friends

There is still time for the Mix It Up Challenge over at SugarPea Designs.  
Here's the inspiration photo and sketch.  

I used a bit of both for my card that uses one of my favorite sets.....Mugs & Kisses.  

Cocoa and Friends2

In shades of brown, I used the Card Builder wavy die for my bottom "waves".    The wave gave a perfect place to stamp my perk to clear stamps!

And seriously, how cute are these images?

Reverse Confetti / JOY

Wanted to spread a bit of JOY around for the upcoming holidays!
One of my favorite sets is the Background Builder.  I have paired it with the Wreath of Joy Confetti Cuts for a graphic look.

The solid circle from Background Builder was stamped repeatedly and overlapping each other over a trimmed white panel using Piggy Bank, Magenta, Iced Aqua, and Lagoon Reverse Confetti Inks.  This panel was added to a white notecard that was scored at 1/8" around the perimeter.

Using the Wreath of Joy Confetti Cuts, the leaves were die cut from Piggy Bank cardstock as well as the letters 'J' and 'Y'.  All the die cut elements were adhered with liquid glue.  For dimension, I layered three JOY Confetti Cuts together.  To finish, mini clear gems were added to the center of the wreath and then the whole card was spritzed with Clear Shimmer Spray for a snowy look.

Reverse Confetti / Thankful for you Sale starts today!!

Reverse Confetti starts their annual Thankful for You Sale today!
25% off your entire order!!  These savings are automatically applied to orders placed from November 21-29.  I would love for you to use my affiliate link below to do some shopping!

I have a **NEW** project here to share with you but also some of my recent favorites (listed below)!

Thank You

It's no secret I prefer spring/summer vibes.  So I channeled this for a thank you card.
I used Sketched Florals and paired it with the sentiment from Thank You.  I love how both these sets look 'sketchy'.  I used fun Reverse Confetti Ink colors in Piggy Bank, Buttercup, Lime Green, Baby Blue, Magenta, and Grape Soda.  For some dimension, the sentiment strip was adhered with foam adhesive to leave space to tuck the florals in behind.  The focal panel was adhered to a 1/4" scored notecard around the perimeter.

Thank You2


A few of my recent favorite cards--

Card #1  (blog post HERE)
This card is one that is definitely relevant here in 2020.  We all needs HUGS!   So send some written hugs with a card like this one!  This one virtually requires no coloring and very quick stamping.  You can even make this simpler by pulling out a circle punch for those circles!  Come on, I know you all have a circle punch from way back, right?

Hugs enclosed

Card #2 (blog post HERE)
I don't know one single person that wouldn't want to receive a 'hello' card in the mail!  I know they truly brighten my day when I find one in my mail!  This card uses one of my favorite techniques......using the back of the stamp to stamp the solid image like I've done here.  Again, so simple and you can choose any color scheme you want!  Just another way to say.....Hi. Hey. Hello.

Brighter Days is a must have set for sending out a quick and simple card to cheer someone up.  I've paired the floral from this set wtih the new beautiful Ornate Cover Plate.  I did a white on white background to really make my floral stand out.  After stamping, I added Copic details to the leaves and flowers.  To finish, I added the sentiment panel and my floral with foam adhesive.

MFT & Friends November Release

Pandas at Play

I'm joining the fun with the MFT November release and the rest of the Design Team!  

I could not resist the adorable Pandas at Play.  You can create endless scenes with these cute bears.

I created a cool winter sky by ink blending Dusty Concord Distress Ink over the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil.  I used dimension on the upper and lower panels to create depth for my clouds and background.  Images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies.

Reverse Confetti / 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely

I am here to help celebrate the 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely.  
This is the 10th annual Christmas Tags event!  Make sure to visit Tracey's blog for details but today is sponsored by Reverse Confetti!

I've pulled out my favorite holiday set Holiday Bough.  This set lends itself to gorgeous blooms along with the large swag.  To create each of my tags, I've used the Circle Rays Duo Confetti Cuts along with the ornament hanger die from Ornament Star Confetti Cuts.  Before diecutting the ornament, Broken China Distress Ink was blended over a piece of white note card.  Once done, the hangers were die cut from Rose Cardstock and added with liquid glue.  

The large and small images from Holiday Bough were Copic colored, die cut, and added with foam adhesive to my ornaments.  Sentiment strips cut at an angle with sentiments from Joyful Holiday Wishes.  Some white gems and red baker's twine finish these traditional tags.

Spellbinders / Season's Greetings

Seasons Greetings

Spellbinders recently released an add-on die set during the October Club release.  
This die was highly requested to be re-released as a die set from their 2018 November Card Kit.

Season's Greetings, Deer from Spellbinders is a fun set that you can totally customize how you want to embellish your deer!

I went with some light pink and olive greens for this card to change up the holiday colors.  I love making a card using only die cuts.  All the pieces were die cut and assembled to how I wanted them adding in a bit of bling to the centers of the flowers with some Stickles.  The center panel was matted with a shiny gold cardstock to finish the card.

Seasons Greetings2

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
