Out of This World - March '17

It's that time again for the March 12 Kits of Occasions!
I know I can't believe it is already almost April 1st!

You are in for a treat this month because our hostess Jeanne Jachna's kit is literally Out of the World! When I spread out all the papers, die cuts and embellishments I realized right away that my desk was not near big enough! Her kit is just loaded with fun and far out goodies. Thank you Jeanne, the kit was so much fun to play with!

To make it even more fun Jeanne not only has a guest this month but she gave away three kits. So we have a total of four guests this month! Welcome Richard Breaks, Janis Woolbright, Betty Keefe and Katie Mowery

I made 5 projects for the hop today.



This next one I used sketch #281 at Freshly Made Sketches!



This next one is also for the reminder call at Tag You're It #68!


Here they are all together.

National Craft Month Celegration Blog Hop

Welcome, if you are following along with the hop you should have arrived here from the talented Eva's blog!

I feel so honoured to be hopping today with Nicole and the Right At Home Shop. Nicole has set up today's blog hop to celebrate our favorite hobby and bring the crafty community together for a day dedicated to our passion.

Today Nicole will also be releasing a special stamp set she designed called Make Something Beautiful at the Right At Home Shop. You won't want to miss out on this one!

I used this fabulous set to create my card today. I started by stamping and heat embossing the images using VersaFine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder on Bristol cardstock. The images where then cut with my Scan N Cut, but of course fussy cutting will work perfectly too, and then watercoloured with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. My background was created using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink and splattered with a bit of water.




There is a giveaway on the RAH blog for those who hop along and comment today. Would you love to win this fantastic stamp set?

The next stop on the hop is fabulous Marcie

 In case you got lost along the way, or you are just starting here you can head over to Right At Home and start from the beginning with Nicole...
Happy Hopping!

SugarPea Designs Birthday Bash

Welcome to SugarPea Designs 3rd Birthday Bash Celebration!  

We are so honored to have the opportunity to celebrate this incredible milestone that all of you helped make happen! Today’s festivities included some incredible inspiration from the SugarPea Design Team and some of our very Special Guests.  

Now you can’t have a Birthday Bash without prizes and there are lots of prizes to be won! A few of our blog hop participants will be giving away a SugarPea Designs stamp set, so please leave comments for each hop participant for your chance to win! In addition to this, ONE lucky winner will be randomly chosen from all comments left to receive a $100 Gift Certificate to SugarPea Designs. You have until April 15th to enter to win. Winners will be announced on April 17th.

But that’s not all…we also want YOU to be part of the party by sharing a card with us.

Once you have completed the hop, we’d love it if you’d keep the celebration going, by creating a Birthday card or project and linking it up at the SugarPea Designs Blog for a chance to WIN a Mini MISTI and Creative Corners Tool.

    For my card today I used the fabulous new Starburst Cover Plate die along with the Celebrate All the Things clear stamp set to create the perfect birthday card for a company that happens to be 3 years old. Happy Birthday SugarPea!  


 I started by die cutting the Starburst Cover Plate with white, aqua and green cardstock. I applied adhesive to the entire front of a white card base and then adhered the white die cut first. Then I inlay the aqua and green die cuts. Next I stamped the sentiment from Celebrate All the Things and then three candles, also from that set, in aqua and green inks to signify SugarPea Designs 3rd birthday! The flames were painted with Wink of Stella for a little extra sparkle. 

Make sure that you visit all the blogs along the hop for your chance to win and don't forget to go to the SugarPea Designs Blog and participate in the link up for your chance to win the Mini MISTI and Creative Corners Tool!

The 30 Day Colouring Challenge - Day 27


For Day 27 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin.

Today I am using Avery Elle's Carolling Critters. The images are coloured with Copic Markers, the lantern is lit with Stickles and the background was created with Distress Oxide inks. Definitely need some practice with them, definitely creamier than regular Distress Inks and they react with water instantly. The white puffy accents on the hats and the snow was done with Liquid Applique. Haven't used that in years.
