Sugar Pea Designs Sketch 12

I’m feeling the love today.  I wanted to participate in the challenge at Sugar Pea Designs so I used the sketch shown below.


I flipped through all my Sugar Pea stamps and decided on one of the elements from Pizza My Heart.


The round image fit perfectly into a stitched circle for the sketch.  I stamped it in Smoky Slate ink and cut another circle from Smoky Slate card stock.  The pattern papers are left over from Stampin’ Up! a few years ago.


I die cut a couple of hearts and added some twine around the gray circle.  I really enjoyed making this card and plan to keep this sketch in my resource album.


Oh, I mentioned love, right?  This card is for my wonderful husband who definitely has a “pizza my heart”.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall

Happy Fall to Y’all!  I love the fall season.  The cool weather, the pretty trees, warm cider.  Ok, ok, I know I live in Florida now but I still remember the sights and smells.  To keep me thinking about the fall season I made a card today celebrating it.


   I think this is so cute!  I used a stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs.  It’s called “What’s Mew?” from the Sweet P Collection.


Every one of these sentiments work so well with the stamp and also alone or with other Sugar Pea sets.  I have several friends who have cats so I had that in mind when I chose the purrfect day phrase.  The cranberry card base is 5 x 5 1/2″.  I wrapped some gold dotted paper with a wide burlap ribbon.  I’m loving that touch, by the way.  After stamping the image a few times on white and pattern paper I pieced parts of it to create a color scheme I wanted.  The girl, shutters, tree branch and windows are all individually cut and glued onto the original white stamped image.


It’s so nice to use stamps for many different seasons and occasions.


I found a label die that I cut and turned upside down to mimic the half moon window on the stamp.  I few small stitched leaf die cuts finished off the card.  I’m entering this card in Sugar Pea Designs SPD09 Challenge.  There is another 10 days or so to enter your card.  I’m hoping to win a $15 gift certificate so that I can buy more Sugar Pea stamps!   Happy, happy fall.

Coffee Blog Hop Post 3

This is my third post today.  Please scroll down to read the other 2.  I’m participating in a Coffee Blog Hop as its International Coffee Day.  Here is my card.


I just returned from Dunkin’ Donuts where I got a large iced coffee, decaf.  The sentiment on my card is really cute but if I had a regular coffee I would be up all night.  I’m enjoying it too.

I used to be a designer for Diane’s Daydream Designs.  She has the most wonderful digital images, sentiments and paper.  If you’ve never worked with digital stamps before, you should really give it a try.  Stop by Diane’s store.  She has tons of cute things.


I love these stacked cups, and they are all over the paper crafting world.  I colored them up with Copic markers and mounted it front and center of some pretty pattern paper.  I used Rich Razzelberry card stock as the card base.  I felt the card needed some shine so I used a Wink of Stella pen.

That’s all for me today.  Heading off to watch my Kansas City Chiefs win the Monday Night Football game at Arrowhead Stadium.  Go Chiefs!!!

Who doesn’t like Starbucks.  Well, maybe a few but if someone gave them a gift card, especially in this personal holder, I bet they would use it.


I know I would.  This stamp is an older MFT one but so perfect for this idea.  I also like the vertical orientation of the gift holder.  It’s different and allows for a nice space to decorate and stamp.


I’m heading to look at some of the projects that are all linked at Cuts, Crops, Creativity.   I’m hoping to get one more project posted today.  Come back later!

Coffee Blog Hop Post 1


I’m having fun today posting some projects with a coffee theme.  This is a little goodie bag from Lawn Fawn made from kraft paper.  The cute sentiment, cup and spoon are from LF’s Love You A Latte stamp and die set.  Wouldn’t this make the cutest gift with a couple of K-Cups inside.  Come back in a few hours for another coffee post.
