Hello and welcome!
Today I have an extra special post to share with you! It’s all about 10th Annual Caring Hearts Card Drive hosted by super talented Vera Yates! The purpose of this card drive is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes or live alone. Please check Vera’s blog for all the details and how you can participate!
As a part of Caring Hearts Card Drive SugarPea Designs is excited to release a very special stamp set today!!!
And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I stamped some cuties from Christmas Cheer stamp set, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut leaving a little white edge around.
As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: R01-R02-R05-R08-R29; YG01-YG05-YG07-YG09; BG000-BG02; C00-C1-C3; YR30-Y21-YR24-YR27; E30-E31-E33.
The background was framed with a dotted rectangle large enough to cover a whole A2 size card front die cut from Card Front Element Builder II set. I also die cut a circle window inside using Zig Zag Stitched Circles SugarCut and snow hill using a stitched line die from Card Front Element Builder set. The blue sky behind the critters was inked directly on the card base using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and the Falling Snow effect was added through the stencil with a plain white embossing paste. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and finished with a generous coat of Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Shimmer pen.
SugarPea Designs is giving away (1) $50 Gift Card and (10) TEN Caring Hearts – Christmas Cheer stamp sets. All you need to do is leave a comment on their post to be entered to win! You have until October 9th to comment. The winner will be announced on Thursday, October 10th.
