Sugar Pea Designs Challenge #50

MIU 50

Sugar Pea Designs Challenge #50

When I saw the challenge for this month I knew I had to turn these cute cacti into a festive bunch!  I used the limited edition Cuddly Cacti for this card.

sugar peas challenge #50I love this festive shaker with the traditional red and green colors, really pops against the white!  To start my card I die cut a stitched scalloped rectangle in thick white card stock and centered on the card base.  To create the shaker, I ran my stitched frame through my die cutting machine with silver glitter and with a double sided adhesive foam sheet.  I laid the silver frame on the stitched rectangle and stamped the sentiment in black versafine ink.  Next, I adhered the foam frame down and filled with holiday sequins.  I then trimmed acetate and placed over the frame and glued the silver glitter frame on top.

I stamped the cacti, pots, and santa hats, colored with copic markers, and then die cut out.  I added one sentiment on the pot and glued and pop dotted them over the frame.

Sugar Peas Challenge #48



Mix It Up Challenge #48

I finally got my first stamp set of sugar peas, the special and awesome cacti set when they paired with Simon Says Stamps for September!  I couldn’t wait to create with these cuties and decided to use them for the current challenge!

The front of my card I went with the sketch and replaced the circle with a more arch design.  I used the colors to create the little scene and heat embossed the sentiment.  Aren’t they just the cutest!?

I have been so wanting to try the tunnel card and knew these cutie cacti would go perfect in one!  I followed the instructions from Jennifer McGuire tunnel card video.  Wasn’t as hard as I thought and really is stunning when done!

It’s a month long challenge so if you have any of their stamp sets join in for a chance to win $50 to use in their store! WOW!
