Sugar Pea Designs For Pugs Sake | Valentine’s Day Handmade Cards

Good morning everyone, I’m starting the Valentine’s Day cardmaking with this adorable little pug by Sugar Pea Designs.
This card was inspired by the current Sugar Pea Designs’ Mix it up Challenge # 63.

For this card, I followed the sketch provided to create a sweet Pugs & Kisses Valentine’s Day card that you can share with a loved
one or a friend.
I stamped out the image of the pug and clouds onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black
ink and used my Copic Markers to color the images in.

Copic Markers Combination

Pug: E55, E53, E51, E50, W9, W7, W5, W3
Balloon: BV, 13, BV04, BV02, BV01
Clouds: BV04, BV02, BV01

Once I finished coloring the images, I used the Brother ScanNCut to cut the images out leaving a small white border.

To create the background, I die cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with a large stitched rectangle die and then ink blended
Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink, Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and finished the bottom off with a little Blue Print Sketch Distress
Oxide ink. I splattered the background with watered down Shaded Lilac and Black acrylic paint for a little interest.

To assemble the card, I die cut puffy clouds from white cardstock and added them to the bottom with foam tape, added a sentiment,
and the focal point images. And that’s all to it!

Sugar Pea Designs’ Christmas Cheer | Nuvo Gilding Flakes | Copic coloring

Good morning everyone, I’m sharing one last holiday inspired card for this year featuring Sugar Pea Designs’ Christmas Cheer
stamp set and Nuvo’s Gilding Flakes in the background.

Sugar Pea Designs Christmas Cheer stamp set colored with Copic markers combined with Card Front Elements Builder II by Sugar Pea Designs and Nuvo Gilding Flakes in gold for a holiday inspired handmade card.

I started this card by creating the background first. I cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm panel to 4.25 by 5.5 and applied a
double-sided adhesive from Scrapbook.com diagonally across the entire panel. Then I applied the gold gilding flakes
and rubbed them in with my fingers. Once the entire panel was covered, I used a stencil brush to brush away any
excess flakes back into the container.

Next, I stamped out the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored
them in with Copic markers.

I used the ScanNCut to cut out all of the images and die cut a tag from Gina K’s Red Velvet by Thermo Web cardstock using Card Front Elements Builder II by Sugar Pea Designs.

Then I added all of my components onto the card front with foam tape and finished the card with a sentiment strip
stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Sugar Pea Designs Indian Summer | Give Thanks | Copic coloring

Hi everyone! I have a little fall-inspired card to share with you, featuring Sugar Pea Designs’  most adorable raccoons from Indian Summer stamp set.

Sugar Pea Designs Indian Summer stamp colored with Copic markers combined with Sugar Pea Designs Large Striped Cover Die background which was ink blended with Distress Oxide ink for a fall inspired handmade card.

I first stamped the images onto a piece of Neenah 80lb. Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo ink and used Copic markers to color in the images. For the raccoons, I used all of the Warm-Grey Copic markers in a different combination, listed below. I used the ScanNCut to cut out all of the images.

Copic Color Combination

Raccoon’s Head: W7, W5, W4, W3, W2, W0
Ears: R11, W00
Mask: W9, W7, W5, W4, W3
Face: W1, W0
Hands/feet: W7, W5, W3

Sugar Pea Designs Indian Summer stamp colored with Copic markers combined with Sugar Pea Designs Large Striped Cover Die background which was ink blended with Distress Oxide ink for a fall inspired handmade card.

For the background, I used one of my favorite cover dies called Large Striped Cover Plate by Sugar Pea Designs. I die cut the panel three times from Bristol smooth cardstock to allow me to build up in dimension. The most top panel, I ink blended using Carved Pumpkin on the top half and Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink in the bottom half. To brighten up the bottom half, I went over the area with Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink.
At this point, I had all of the elements for this card and I was ready to begin adhering the components together. After stamping the sentiment with Versamark ink, I added brown sparkle embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.

I added the three frames, two white and the ink blended frame to an A2 sized card base and inlaid the ink blended stripes to create some height for the panel.
At this point, all I had to do was to add the focal point images which I popped up with foam squares. And lastly, I added some shimmer on the raccoon with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle pen.

This card was inspired by the current Sugar Pea Designs Mix it up Challenge for October 2019.
