SugarPea Sweet Peeks Day 5


Hi peeps! Yay, today is the day. All the new goodies that you've been seeing this whole week, will be available in the store this afternoon!  While waiting for that, we have some more goodies to showcase.

Introducing the totally adorable Better Together set and the fabulous Large Striped Cover Plate. I used this cover plate on my card on day 2 and 3. Below is my card using Better Together set.




When I made this card a few weeks back, I was in the middle of watercolor craze. Well, who am I kidding, I am still into playing with watercoloring technique. I stamped and heat embossed the milk and the heart cookie. Then I went to town with the coloring.

Here's a look at the stamp & dies set that being introduced today.








The SPD team has some amazing and creative inspiration for you using the products featured here today. You can visit each of our designers blogs below for details on their projects.  And while you’re there be sure to leave a sweet comment for them, giving you an extra entry to win Better Together set.

SugarPea Sweet Peeks Day 4



Hi everyone! We're almost there. Tomorrow, all the new goodies will be available in store. Meanwhile, today we continue with more sweet peeks. Introducing the beautiful Garden Topiary set. 




This set totally remind me of the garden in Versailles with  their beautiful topiary. And, the font combination on the sentiment on this set is one of my favorite. It's fun & elegant at the same time.

For my card, I start by stamping the pots and the the topiary. As usual, I like to add shadow and dimension on the image on my card. Here I added shadow to the pots and then dab Copic in various greens to the topiary. Once that done I die cut the bottom of the card panel using the curve border from Card Front Element Builder. Then stamp the sentiment and adhere the panel to the card base. Finish by adhering some sequins.

Here's a look at the set:

SugarPea Sweet Peeks Day 1


Hi peeps! Welcome to SugarPea Designs sweet peek weeks. We have quite an array of new sets to share with you that we hope you will love as much as we love them.

For today, we are introducing Pretty Peonies and Card Front Element Builder dies. Let me just say, if you love flower stamps, this one is definitely a must have. I love flowers, so this definitely up my alley.



For my card, I start by die-cutting the watercolor card panel using one of the edge from Card Front Element Builder dies. Then stamp and heat embossed the flower with rose gold embossing powder. Once that done I did loose coloring with Ranger Oxide Distress ink. Adhere panel to card base and finish by die-cutting the hello sentiment from glitter paper (I layered with a couple cardstock to make it thicker).

Below you can take a look at the new stamp & dies that we're introducing today. I have to say the Card Element Builder is pretty neat. You can create so many look with this dies set.








The SugarPea team has lined up someamazing & fun inspirations for you. Please stop by on the DT blog and leave comment along the way. As always, we have daily giveaway during the release week.

The Ton February Challenge - Heart

                                           Image may contain: text



Hi peeps! happy February. Yep, yep, we already passed the first month on 2018. Crazy isn't it? Anyway, new month means new challenge at The Ton Challenge Blog. Since it's February we're going with the cue word "Heart". Easy peasy & fun theme.




For my card I started by tracing a heart shape on a card panel. Then I stamped the flowers from Wild Peonies, Mini Wild Florals and colored them with Copic. Once that done, I cut the heart shape opening on a piece of scrap paper and use it as mask and lightly inked the heart edge. This help to strengthen the heart shape. Adhere the card panel to card base.

Next, I work on the sentiment. I love this sentiment from Summer Blooms and stamp it and heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder on a strip of vellum and carefully adhere it to the card base. Finished by adding mix size Dew Drops

So, what do you think? Will you join us and play along? You could win gift certificate to the store. Check all the challenge detail and enter your card HERE. Thank you all for stopping by here and may your February be filled with lovely things that makes your heart smile. Cheers....

The Ton’s 3rd Anniversary Release Blog Hop



Hi everyone! Welcome to The Ton's 3rd Anniversary week long celebration! For this release, Effie has released 23 new stamp designs, coordinating dies and 9 new couture mixes! And, I for one think this is pretty amazing release. I can't pick just 1 favorite! I have several. Hah!

This time, we are doing the hop a bit different. Instead of just a day of hop, we have several days of blog hop with many amazing guest designer line up. Starting today all the way to January 26, join us for a fun blog hop filled with fun projects.

I made 3 cards for today. Let's start with the pretty Coming Up Daisies set. This was my first time playing with Ken Oliver's Color Burst. On this card, you can see the intensity of the color compare to the card that I made yesterday (which I diluted a lot). As someone that used to neat line, I have to learn to just let it go, let the color spread and go where they want.




I start by stamping and heat embossing the flowers. Then I wet the cardstock and carefully sprinkle the various color powder and move the carstock around to let the color move. For embellishment I added some mix size dew drop.

Next is my favorite card that I made for this release using The Peony Notes Bundles combined with Seriously Amazing Sentiments and the previously release Basic Labels.




This is such a neat  bundle! And, I love, love the large bold sentiment. Last but not least, is a pretty clean and simple card using Large Floral Daisy set. I will be playing more with this set. I got the matching dies this week & haven't got a chance to play with it, but I am excited to create more cards with this pretty set.

The Ton’s 3rd Anniversary Release - Day 3



Hi peeps and welcome to day 2 of The Ton's 3rd Anniversary Release. To celebrae, Effie has released 23 new stamp designs, coordinating dies and 9 new couture mixes!

For today, I want to highlight the free sets that you can obtain with purchase. First up is a card I made using Peony Notes Bundles. This bundle feature an array of stamps that enable you to stamp layered floral clusters effortlessly because each layer of the florals are combined into a single easy to stamp cluster. Peony Notes A + B are two 6×8 stamp sets that feature the actual floral clusters and foliage stamps. Peony Notes C is also a 6×8 set which features a large solid background stamp allowing you to stamp the negative areas around the floral cluster.




My 2nd card is made using the Daisy Duet set. I have asked Effie a while back to do daisy stamp and am so excited when I found out that they're coming out at this release. I love daisy and they're the flowers on my wedding bouquet. :)




For this card I am playing with Ken Oliver's Color Burst. This is only the second time I am using the Color Burst and am still struggling at sprinkling the color at very small amount. Trust me, you only need very little as the colors are pretty intense. I had to add lots of water and lots of dabbing to soften the color  (tomorrow, I'll have a card that show the more intense color). I finish the card with some sequins mix from the new Lilac Blossoms couture mix.

The Ton’s 3rd Anniversary Release - Day 1



Hi everyone and welcome to The Ton's 3rd Anniversary Release. For this anniversary celebration, Effie has released 23 new stamp designs, coordinating dies and 9 new couture mixes!

Today, we are introducing Fresh Cut Daisies (Layered + Outlines), Large Florals: Daisy, Seriously Amazing, Coming Up Daisies, Buildable Woodgrain, Riotous Wildflowers, Winter Cardinal, Bold General Word Greeting Dies and Bold Amazing Word Greeting Dies (all links will go live on 1/19/2018).

And introducing 3 new couture mix.
Mix 1: Pink Blossoms
Mix 2: Lilac Blossoms
Mix 3: Mint Sugar

My 1st card is featuring the Winter Cardinal. Did you know that Cardinal comes in many colors? I learned this while searching for color ideas that there are many variety of Cardinal. I love learning something new from just searching for inspiration. :) For the sentiment I used the thank you from Occasion Confetti set.




For my 2nd card, I played with Riotous Wildflowers set. I have this set of Aladine Izink Pigment inks that just been sitting on my shelves and I decided to give it a try. I used the yellow & the red and the colors are pretty intense. I diluted the red quite a bit. Didn't do that with the yellow. I find them to be a bit harder to blend, but then again this is my 1st time trying them, so I probably just need more practice. For the softer yellow, I used Zig Clean Brush.

Floral Hello

Hi peeps.How's it going? I am bundling up as the cold weather hitting Houston area. Although, compare to those that get snowed in, I really have nothing to complain about. I am just whiny when it's cold. LOL.

Well, I want to pop in real quick to share this hello card I made for Honey Bee Stamps. 




Fun fact, when I first get started in stamping, I found flower stamps to be intimidating. I tend to to stick to cute critters stamps. And, now, I couldn't imagine not working with flower sets. Flower sets tend to catch my eyes right away (I still love cute critters as well). This Honey Bee Hello Gorgeous set is one of my favorite from their collection.

This flower sure makes me wish for spring weather to be here. Well, that's all from me today. May your day starts off wonderfully.
