Hero Arts: Nut-thing compares to you




Hello and Happy Saturday!  I'm crafting all weekend, how about you?  Today I have a bit of a fall inspired project.  Have you seen the Hero Arts Color Layering Squirrel set?


This guy is adorable, isn't he?  I stamped out the outline in Intense black and the detail layer has been heat embossed in copper.  Love that fun sentiment!  Do you spy the Designer Woodgrain?  The cork piece is from my stash.

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:

This week we are celebrating the new SugarPea Designs Holiday Product Release!  The goodies will be available at 6 pm eastern Friday, October 20th!  Please note that product links will not be active until release day/time.

Today the team is featuring the new Pinecone Greetings stamp set + coordinating SugarCut dies along with Flurry of Warm Wishes.  

First up is Pinecone Greetings:


This set is a beauty!  I went clean + simple with this design to really let the stamps shine.  I used the SugarCut - Zig Zag Stitched Circles with a kraft panel.  The white snow if Kuretake Gansai Tambi.  I topped off the pinecones with a red/white twine bow.

My next card features Flurry of Warm Wishes.


Although you can't really tell, my color palette is light pink, dark green + charcoal.  It's such a soothing trio.  This could be a great holiday mass production project with the MISTI.  I just flipped the panel to stamp the other side.

#PSL




Hey, Happy Saturday!  It's another wonderful Fall Day in the Pacific Northwest!  I decided to design a Pumpkin Spice Latte themed card.

One of my favorite Reverse Confetti stamp sets is Just Brew It!  Such a fun set! 


I combined it with the Pumpkin Patch confetti cuts,  Love those Lacy Scallop Circle confetti cuts!  The paper is from the Every Little Bit 6x6 paper pad.


I meant to take a photo of the Tangerine base panel.  I generally cut my full size cardstock into 1/4's.  This particular one had 2 die cuts out of the center..perfect for what I needed.  I topped off my card with twine and a clip from my stash.

My card was inspired by Fusion Card Challenge:




I used the following Reverse Confetti colors:


Tangerine  •  Stone  •  Midnight

Hero Arts: You're freaking awesome





Aloha!  So, if you follow me on FB or IG you may have noticed that I've been on vaca for the past week.  We had a glorious time in Maui.   My first crafting project back from vaca had to be hawaiian influenced:


I managed to use 4 different Hero Arts sets:

Color Layering Pineapple
Tropical Foliage Bold Prints
Wave Pattern Background
Hello Gorgeous

Let's start at the bottom and work our way up.  I started with a Foliage panel that has the Tropical Foliage Bold Prints stamped with Lime Green.  I inked up the edges too.  I layered a Sunshine panel that has been stamped with the Wave Pattern Background in Butter Bar.  

I used the Circle Infinity Dies so I had a space to stamp the sentiment from the Hello Gorgeous set in Intense Black.  I always seem to fall back on pink pineapples, and hello?  Why wouldn't I?  Love the Color Layering Pineapple set.  The inks for the pineapple:

Soft Pink  •  Cotton Candy  •  Bubble Gum


The pineapple greenery consists of:

Lime Green  •  Fresh Lawn  •  Green Hills

The bloom:

Butter Bar  •  Cotton Candy  •  Intense Black

I topped it off with twine, washi and enamel dots from my stash.

Thought I'd share the pics on my blog.  I use this as a diary, not just for my design work.  Darin took this gorgeous sunset photo, absolutely gorgeous eh?


LOL...Darin took this one of me.  I always look so excited when I have food.  This was Shave Ice with Mochi (the white stuff on top) and the bottom has Azuki Beans....a japanese delicacy...personally I could live off of the stuff.  If you're ever on Maui, make sure you check out Ululani's!
