SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks - Day 1

It's time to kick off DAY 1 of the SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneak Peeks of the July release!   We were giving our designers a bit of break to enjoy the lazy days of summer so our release has been delayed until the and of the month , but it will be worth the wait!  Let's get going!  



Now, I am also giving you a extra sweet sneak peek of the new SugarCuts - Zig Zag Rectangles!  You're welcome!


I used the new SugarCuts - Zig Zag Circles to create the circular panel behind my image.  I colored that cute elephant from the Tons of Fun stamp set with copics and used a white gel pen to add the freckles to his cheeks. 





I created that border using the new SugarCuts - Zig Zag Circles and the inlaid technique. 



Remember our entire July Product Release will be available for purchase in the SugarPea Designs Store on July 31 at 6:00 PM EST!

Pop! Bam! Pow!

 Just popping in to share a card I made with some of the newly released from C.C. Designs!


I decided to color up this super little guy, Roberto's Rascal's Super Hero Henry.  I used the new Make a Card #7 Super Hero die set to create the flash of yellow behind the image, the stars, and the die cut words.


I colored my image with copics and used a brown and black General's pastel chalk pencils.

CCC3 -Let the Good Times Roll

Calling all fans of color challenges!  SugarPea Designs just posted their latest Creative Color Challenge #3!   Color challenges are not my favorite.  I struggle with them,in fact.  However, this time and idea came to mind quite quickly and I played along with the SugarPea Designs Spare Me stamp set.  


I created my little bowling alley using cream, kraft, and sno cone card stock.  I ran the sno cone panel through the Big Shot in an embossing folder to give the panel some texture.  I made sure to have the stripes run parallel with the diagonal cut in the panel.   


I colored my image with copics and paper pieced his bowling shirt using some patterned papers from the Authentique Lucky 6x6 paper pad.   


The rules are very simple…
  • Create a new card or project using the colors provided.  SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • Upload to the SugarPea Designs blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: CCC3 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • Add your name and link to your project in the InLinkz in the SugarPea Designs blog
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $15

Now head on over to the SugarPea Designs blog for a list of designers who have  card to share for some crafty inspiration before you tackle the sketch yourself and play along!
