Fusion - So Proud

Are you looking for a new challenge to play today? Check out this one from Fusion Card Challenge!
This inspiration photo looked so masculine to me. I usually gravitate to color, but this one is all black and white with a touch of wood.. a real challenge for me.
I stuck to the sketch for the most part, switching out the flag for a Tall Triangle shape. I cut the die from shades of grey to pickup on the stripes on the rug in the photo.
For my bit of wood grain I added wood veneer stars. 
The clean sentiment is from Reverse Confetti Simple Sentiments. I added a bit of silver because I just have to have a little bling! This clean design was a treat to discover as came together.

Sugar Pea Designs Challenge - Egg-a-licious

Do you love Sugar Pea Designs? Then you need to join us for our monthly Mix It Up Challenge! It's a great way to spark your creativity, and who knows? You might just win a gift certificate to the store for playing along! Here's this month's challenge! 
You can choose from the inspiration photo, sketch, or color scheme to play along!
I focused on all those yummy colorful treats and turned them into colorful Easter Eggs from the Egg-a-licious stamp set. 
The sticks in the photo inspired me to arranged the colorful eggs on a clean lined background.
If you look close you'll see I stamped pastel dots on the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle panel. I also addded some pink dots with a copic marker. The little bunny is fussy cut - the coordinating die is for the egg shape only. 
I know this one is going to make someone very happy!

Need more inspiration? You can find more samples from the team, and get all the directions on how to link up your own card here on the Sugar Pea Designs Blog! I can't wait to see what you make!

Have a great day!

Pretty Little Studio - Shine Bright!

I'm so excited! I just got the Pretty Little Studio Shine Bright collection in my hot little hands! This collection has such a romantic feel to it.. soft pastels, and dramatic navy. The soft watercolor flowers are absolutely dreamy, and all the perfectly coordinated accents are a pleasure to play with! 
I topped the background papers with a printed journaling card from the Happy Day pack that contains 8 different cards.
The sentiment is from a clear sticker sheet called Be Happy Words. Because the stickers are clear you can layer them over pattern paper or die cuts without covering up anything!
The Simply Floral die cut flowers are absolutely dreamy! I attached them with adhesive foam tape to add dimension. I tucked the die cut tassel ends under the raised flowers so they look like they are hanging from the floral arrangement. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of shiny sequins ( Raindrop Blue - transparent, Dreamy Blue - iridescent).
You'll love this new must have collection!
