IAR: Monthly challenge: Anything goes!

Me again today, for a quick update on the blog :-)

I was super eager to show you all this folded card using all the gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses, along with a super sweet stamp from Stamping Bella called Tiny Townie Garden Lily.

I don't know about you, but I really like when I can reuse a stamp for multiple occasions, and this card called for a non-traditional Christmas twist!

I first started by stamping the image with Desert Sand ink from Memento to get a no-line colouring look, so that the whole card would have a soft look matching the beautiful flowers I had picked for my inspiration.

And to do things differently, I decided to create a center-folded card that would open up with some twine hidden behind the image.

I used these I Am Roses products:

BG5 or GB4

And I hope you will try out the Anything Goes challenge on the IAR blog!

SugarPea Designs: When life gives you lemons...

Good morning everyone!

I have a new card to share with you today for SugarPea Designs :-) 

With this past week-end sale on paper pads (didn't see it? make sure to follow our Facebook page for all promotions and giveaways!), I really wanted to play with the Whatever The Weather Patterned Paper Collection

Isn't it super cheery and colorful? Plus, I love how you can easily match the colours from the paperpads to Copic markers, the way I did with the Pucker Up stamp set

I first started by stamping the pitcher and the juicer onto some Cryogen White cardstock, then coloured them with the markers I just mentionned above. After that, I die-cut them with the matching SugarCut (so useful and a real time-saver!), and put them aside while I did the card itself.

I folded a 4½"x11" piece of white 100lbs cardstock in two to create the cardbase. I like how this material is so sturdy! Then, I die-cut a panel from the SugarCut – Arrow Cover Plate into the stripe pattern paper. Oh! always keep those extra bits from die-cutting aside, as you can easily reuse them in a shaker project or as a finishing touch :-) My two-cents!

After mounting the panel onto the cardbase with some foam tape for extra dimension, I die-cut two circles with the SugarCuts – Zig Zag Stitched Circles in order to center all my coloured pieces together. And what's a card without a good sentiment, right? I especially love the font on this one from the same stamp set, so I stamped it onto a white tag done using the SugarCut – With Love Tag and completed it with a red polka dot heart and green branches.

I added a few white Nuvo Drops here and there, and that was it!

Ready to give it a try? Make sure you come and show us the result on the SugarPea Designs Facebook group, where LOTS of inspiration happen!
