SugarPea Design 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi peeps!! Welcome to SugarPea Designs 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop! We're glad to have you joining us.

I met Wendy, the owner and brain of SugarPea back in the days when we designed together for There She Goes Stamp. And, when she invited me to join the team it's pretty much a no brainer. I love critters and as you know it, SugarPea has tons of cute critters and beyond. I am so honor and happy that 3 years later I am still part of the team and SugarPea really is one of my favorite company to work with.

Throughout the years SugarPea have released a bunch of cute sets, so I thought for today's cleabration it's only appropriate for me to combine as many sets as I could for my card.

Can you guess how many sets I used to make this card? That moose is the cutest moose on the block in my opinion. I love chunky critters. :) The raccoon is so adorable, the monkey is the sweetest monkey and duck, I love duck. Oh yes, flying pig, who could ignore a flying pig.

Hah... as you can see, I could go on and on talking about SugarPea critters. Do you have a favorite? I find it hard to choose.

If you'd like to expand your SugarPea collection, ow is the time. AS part of the celebration, SugarPea Designs is offering a coupon code: BDAY04 for customers to receive 15% off their entire purchase AND a FREE 4x8 stamp set with any purchase (valid until April 7th 11:59 EST).

SugarPea Designs will be giving away (4) FOUR $40 gift certificates to the SugarPea Designs shop. Winners will be randomly chosen from all the comments left along each stop of the hop.
Comments will close on April 7th 11:59 PM EST with winners announced on April 8th.

Hello From A Couple Bunnies

Hi peeps! I am popping into share this card that I made for Purple Onion Designs (POD). It's been a while since I share a card using any of POD stamps and I really should do more since I do love their stamps.

Last night, I stamped a bunch of their images and since this weekend I'll be having a crafty get together I am hoping I will get to finish a few POD cards. :)

For this card I colored the background with distress oxide ink and played with WillaChloe (the bunny with flower). I was sorting through the images I have and I was delighted when I realized these 2 bunnies match. It looks as if Chloe was handing Willa a flower. Sweet scene, right? I sure do love bunnies. 

Busy day for me, so that's all for today. May your Wednesday be a sweet one as well. Cheers....

SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

Hi peeps! Happy Friday and welcome to SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop! Hopefully by now many of you have our Winter Release in your hot little hands. The SugarPea team has created fabulous projects to inspire you with even MORE creative possibilities featuring our newest and hottest products!

As you know, I love working with flowers, so for this hop, naturally I used the Pretty Peonies set.

For the panel, I used the SugarCut Card Front Element Builder. There's just something very sweet about scallop frame in my opinion. Layered the panel with the polka dot patterned paper from Spot & Stripes Pastels Paper Pad collection and then I simply adhere the peony. The sentiment is from the Topiary Garden set. Clean & simple, the way I like it. :)

Now, giveaway time! How would you like to WIN a $20 gift certificate to spend on some SugarPea Designs of your own? Please visit with each of our design team members listed below and leave a comment for your chance to win! The winner will be announced on Saturday, March 24th.

Well, that's all from me today peeps. Thank you for stopping by here, enjoy the hop & may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers...

Hope Your Day Is Just Ducky!

Hi peeps. How's it going? Can you believe it's already mid of March. I am loving the nice weather here on my neck of the wood and the spring forward?? Love it! I love that it's still bright at 6pm in the afternoon. It just energized me more. And, I am actually been inspired to create. 

For today's post I am making this card for SugarPea Designs mix it up challenge. I am following the sketch and just tweak it a bit. :) Instead of square I used circles.

I used the Quacker set, oldie but a goodie set that I still adore to this day. I love these cute duckies!! Aren't they just adorable? SugarPea sure knows how to make cute critters stamp.

Peeps, I hope you will join us and play along. You can check out the challenge detail and enter your project HERE. That's all for me today. May your day be a fantastic one.

Then Ton March Challenge - Spring

Hi peeps!! Eeeps, it's March already. February flew by just like that. I spent half of my February obsessing over the Winter Olympic. After it was done, I was like, now what?! Hah... I guess, I go back to my crafting desk. 

Luckily, to get me going, The Ton Challenge Blog have new challenge for the month of March with spring theme. Hm, yeah, this totally help me get in the mood and I came up with this card.

I stamp the background of my card with The Ton Buildable Woodgrain. Love, love this set. It stamped such real looking woodgrain. Next, I stamped the gorgeous Magnificent Magnolias and die cut it with its coordinating dies and I watercolor them with Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Markers (available at The Ton Boutique). Finish by stamping a sentiment from Dearest Peony set.

You have a whole moth to play along and who knows, you could be the lucky one to win gift certificate to the shop. Hope you will join us. Find all the details and enter the challenge at The Ton Challenge Blog. May this month be filled with lots of luck!! Cheers.... :)
