SugarPea Designs Holiday Release Week Sweet Peeks Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of the SugarPea Designs Holiday Release Week Sweet Peeks! Oh, you're going to love this release - so many great stamp sets and dies!



Up first is Eskimo Kisses, a set of adorable critters all dressed up for winter. And we've got some new basic dies - Stitched Borders I.

I used the ZigZag Stitched Borders I to create some masks and blended ink for my ocean and the straight Border to edge my focal panel.  I stamped and coloured some icebergs - my little fishing penguin is towing along some gifts for his friends!

For this card, I just masked and masked! It's easy to cut multiple masks by stamping on top of a small stack (max 4) of sticky notes and then cut them all at once. Then stamping a scene like this goes very quickly. Colouring took a little while, but my limited colour scheme helped with that.

Be sure to check out the SugarPea blog for more details and chances to win!

Both cards are as cute as can be, but the second really made me smile. I love it.

Viki Banaszak said...

Your cards are totally adorable! I can't believe you masked that penguin so many times for that card. I don't think I would do that more than once. LOL

Patricia Barber said...

So darn cute both of them!

NinaS said...

Wonderful cards. Love all that masking.

Dee Earnshaw said...

love both cards BUT the 'snow one like you' card is so fun and I'll def be using this awesome idea -thanks for the inspiration:)

Lindar C said...

Great cards, love the masking technique.

I really don't like to mask, but I love the effect. So cute, and perfect for the sentiment! Thank you. (I do try new things, and that is a useful tip. Just can't see me using it if I don't have to. Maybe it has something to do with flunking scissors in kindergarten! I also am not finding fussy cutting to be enjoyable!)

Lisa Petrella said...

Stacey Kowbel said...
