NICU Blog Hop Card Drive – SugarPea Designs Handmade Card

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog! I hope you are having a wonderful and creative day!
Today SugarPea Designs DT member, Lea Lawson, has organized a Card Drive & Fundraiser in honor of her son, Layton Caleb. Layton came into this world 11 weeks early on June 9th, 2016 with 2 serious health conditions. He endured more medically on a daily basis than most adults face in an entire lifetime. And on November 17, 2016 he joined his big sister in Heaven.
Lea is raising money to purchase substantial Starbucks gift cards that can be given to these parents as they find themselves thrust into NICU life.
Why Starbucks? Check out SugarPea Designs blog for more info!
We also have a fundraising effort, where every $5 donated gets you an entry into the prize drawing. There are over $2000 in prizes, sponsored by some of the most amazing stamping & papercrafting companies in the industry! {You can also see all the prizes HERE.}
Not only is this a fundraiser, but also a super inspiring blog hop with MANY stops along the way! As you hop along, you will see amazing cards created with a very special theme. Lea created this moodboard when she started planning Layton’s nursery, and it is her very heart poured into a graphic.
SugarCut-Arrow-Cover-PlateSugarCut---Large-Striped-CoverPlate
Postage-Stamp-CoverPlateSending-Sentiments
The mood board is so pretty and I absolutely love the color combo. So I created a CAS card, that was easy to create and so relaxing.
First I run the SugarCut – Arrow Cover Plate through my Big Shot die cutting it from white cardstock. Then I run it third more times die cutting it from yellow, blue and gray cardstock and I kept the inside pieces.
I glued the white die cut piece on a white card base and I glued the different colored pieces inside empty spaces.

Next I die cut the Large Striped Cover Plate from vellum and trimmed the oval. I glued it to the card and moved to the sentiment part. I die cut the Sending word die included in the Postage Stamp Cover Plate from silver holographic cardstock.
I glued it to the vellum oval and white embossed the second part of the sentiment on a yellow strip of cardstock and mounted it below the sending word die cut.
I added some clear droplets and my card was done.
Don’t forget to visit the SugarPea Designs Blog for a look at some of the fantastic cards for today’s hop!

The World Needs More You – SugarPea Designs Handmade Card

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog! I hope you are having a wonderful and creative day!
I’m excited to be back with a new card for SugarPea Designs showcasing the super adorable new “Parisian Holiday” stamp set and the “Postage Stamp Cover Plate” die set.
I don’t know about you, but I’m in love with these cute parisian girls! The images in this set are so adorable and so easy to color! You can create some lovely cards with them to give to your loved ones. You can create scenes or clean and simple cards, the choice is yours.
I started my card by die cutting a white panel with the smaller rectangle die from the Postage Stamp Cover Plate and using a hill mask die cut with the hill die included in the SugarCut – Card Front Element Builder, I ink blended the panel creating a sky and grass. 
Next I prepared a white card base and trimmed 3 strips of colored cardstock that I glued diagonally on the base. I mounted the panel on the card base using craft foam.

Next I stamped the adorable image, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and die cutting it using the coordinating die. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on a white piece of cardstock. I adhered everything to the card, I glued a few clear sequins and my card was done.

I had a lot of fun playing with this sweet stamp set and I really hope that I inspired you to play with some SugarPea Designs goodies.

Hello, Cupcake – LDRS Creative Handmade Card

Hello everyone and welcome back to my creative space!
I’m back with a brand new LDRS Creative card using the new and awesome Cherry on Top Build-a-Card, Pretty Perfect 6×6 paper pad, Lipstick Jungle ink pad and the You sentiment set that you can order from the LDRS Creative store!
This die set is so versatile and you can create so many amazing designs with it. For my card I went with a CAS look that is super easy to create and looks so awesome.
First I prepared a white base using the die for the base included in the Cherry on Top Build-a-Card set.
Next I die cut the upper part of the cupcake from a pattern paper included in the Pretty Perfect 6×6 paper pad and the bottom part from brown cardstock and mounted them on the base using craft foam.
Next I die cut from white cardstock the label included in the Cherry on Top Build-a-Card set and stamped a sentiment from the You set on it using the Lipstick Jungle ink pad. I added a gold glitter banner behind it and mounted it on the bottom part of the cupcake. 
To finish my card and to add sparkle to it I glued a bunch of rhinestones on the upper part of the cupcake.
This card was so easy to make and it’s perfect for when you want to spice things up 🙂 I really hope you’ll give this style a try!
That’s all from me today!
