You're At The Top Of My Nice List #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Christmas Cheer stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

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!!!

This special stamp set is called Christmas Cheer and has been almost a year in the making. Please note that SugarPea Designs will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the sale of the Christmas Cheer stamp sets to the Alzheimers Association.

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.

A regular A2 size card base was made from the same Neenah Solar White paper I used before for stamping. I inked a light blue sky using Tumbled Glass Distress ink directly on the card front and added a Falling Snow effect through the stencil with a plain white embossing paste. I finished the layout by die cutting three snow hills with Card Front Element Builder SugarCut and popping the all the layers on a foam tape. Finally a coat of a clear glitter shimmer pen added a bit of holiday cheer to this clean and simple project!

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I die cut some elements from Sweet As Pie SugarCut on Strathmore Bristol paper and then stamped the coordinating images from Sweet As Pie stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I always save and use the negative parts of the die cuts for a perfect alignment into my MISTI stamping positioning tool while making the stamping. Finally I colored all the stamps with watercolor markers.

As always, I’m leaving you all the exact colors used on this project: TOMBOW N75, 055, 090, 126, 133, 925, 933, 946, 947, 985, 991.

The background made from a kraft cardstock was embellished with amazing new Leaf Cover Plate. I used it for a tone on tone dry embossed pattern. The sentiment from the same Sweet As Pie set was simply stamped on a piece of a white cardstock. Assembling all the elements together I wrapped a matching orange baker twine and cut out a fish-tail banner from Countryside Charm Patterned Paped Pad. A few sequins added a finish touch to this autumn card.

2019 SugarPea Designs Holiday Release: Day 3

Oh So Jolly #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Oh So Jolly stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of our SugarPea Holiday Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 3 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, September 13th at 6 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to SPD store for these new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on September 13th.**

Today’s Introductions include… three new amazing SugarCuts Christmas Car, Joy Word with Shadow and Merry Word with Shadow. I’m a great fan of word dies and so excited about these new SugarCuts! Plus the SPD Holiday collection is adding another wonderful product: Oh So Jolly Sentiments stamp set!

Christmas Car SugarCut

Merry Word with Shadow SugarCut

Oh So Jolly Sentiments

And here’s what I came up with for you today! To start, I made a bunch of die cutting. I prepared a dotted rectangle panel die cut from Card Front Element Builder II and right in the center I die cut again the Snow Globe. I also die cut three Christmas trees from Christmas Car SugarCut. The snowy sky portion of the snow globe was inked with blue green tones of Distress inks and the trees with yellowy green tones. Before assembling all the elements together I heat embossed a big Holiday sentiment from Oh So Jolly Sentiments stamp set on a piece of heat resistant clear acetate and glued it from the back side on the dotted panel. I sealed the shaker part with a foam tape and popped the whole panel on a regular A2 size card base.

At this point I die cut once again the Snow Globe from a light gray cardstock and added the base to my card. I decided to keep this project clean and simple and so I skipped any other embellishment.
