It Moose be Christmas

I was looking at my stash of new stamps sets and the new Sugar Cuts Dies by SugarPea Designs and it occurred to me that I could combine the stamp sets in a way I hadn't thought to do so when I was working on my projects for the release week!   


I created this fun tag using the new SugarPea Designs Gift Tag Sugar Cuts Die the Layered Treat Labels stamp set and coordinating Layered Treat Labels Sugar Cuts Die.  I die cut the tag, label, and sentiment from whip cream CS.   I stamped he label design and sentiment in hot fudge ink.  I stamped the circular die cut in natural ink using the MFT wood plank background stamp.  The patterned papers are from the Carta Bella Christmas Day 6x6 paper pad.  I added some brown satin ribbon tied with hemp cord to top off the tag.  

 I just love the moose from the Merry Christmoose stamp set  so I colored up his mug and antlers only and then fussy cut him out.   I popped him with foam dots to add dimension.  


  



SPD11 - Winter Wishes

It's time for the monthly SugarPea Designs challenge and this month's theme is Winter Wishes.
I just had to use the new SugarPea Designs Sugar Cuts dies and the new stamp sets to play along!



I used the new Gift Tag Sugar Cuts Die to die cut the tag from kraft card stock.   I used a stippling brush to create the snow with some MFT sweet tooth ink.   I tore some white card stock to create the snow.   I colored my trees with copics and used a clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker to add a little shimmer of snow on the ends of the branches.  




I used dies from both of the new Layered Treat Labels Sugar Cuts Die and Gift Tag Sugar Cuts Die to create the sentiment panel.  I stamped the snowflake and sentiment from the Sweet Treats - Christmas stamp set in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I amalo entering this tag into the Tag You're It Challenge #10.

Merry Little Christmas Elf

This month and next month I guest designing for i {heart} papers and today I am showing off one of the newly released stamp sets by WPlus9 that they carry in the online store.  It's called Merry Little Christmas.


I chose some papers from the Echo Park Home for the Holiday 6x6 paper pad and paired it with some MFT hot fudge and natural card stock.   I stamped my image in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with copics.  I ised a red and clear Wink of Stella Glitter Markers to jazz up the ornament,  


I stamped the sentiment in Avery Elle truffle pigment ink and added a couple of brads to embellish.  I popped the sentiment panel up with foam dot to add some dimension.

Be sure to head on over to the i {heart} papers store to check out all of the products they carry!

SPDSS15 - Merry Christmoose

Looking  for a little sketchy inspiration?  Play along with the SugarSketch 15!
This week, SugarPea Designs released this adorable Merry Christmoose set.  During release week, I just HAD to use the cheeky sentiment in the set and I paired it with one of the accessory stamps.  You can see it HERE.  I had not yet colored up the stinkin' cute moose who is the star of the show in this stamp set so today is the day!

I started with a kraft CS panel that I die cut using the largest die from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitches die set and sponged some Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink along the edges.  I then used the snowflakes from the SugarPea Designs Sweet Treats - Christmas stamp set and lightly stamped them in whip cream ink.   I chose from patterned papaers fro the Carta Bella Christmas Time 6x6 paper pad and matted with hot fudge CS.  I added some whip cream snow drifts to the whip cream panel using teh MFT Die-namics Stitched Snow Drifts.  I used the MFT Die-namics Pierced Fishtail Flag STAX to create the banner and I added a hot fudge button and hemp cord to embellish.  I stamped the sentiment in hot fudge ink.


I stamped my moose in MFT black licorice hybrid ink and colored him with copics.  I used a white gel pen to create the plaid designs on his scarf.   I fussy cut him out and adhered hi to the whip cream panel,   

Here is the sketch which I flipped to left onto it's side::
