SugarPea Designs- Chunky Monkey

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share how easy it is to create a scene with the whimsical stamps at SugarPea Designs!

For today's card, I used only two products: the Chunky Monkey stamp set and the SugarCut – Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles. My cards are usually dimensional, so I figured why not go out of my comfort zone and create something completely flat?!

I first stamped twice the little monkey at the top right corner; once onto my favorite coloring cardstock, and another time onto some masking paper to create a mask, in order to stamp the branch from which the monkey is hanging. Oh, did you notice how long that branch is?! I simply didn't ink the end of it so that I could continue the lines with a black pen that was compatible with my coloring medium.  I also added a bunch of bananas and a couple of monkeys at the bottom of the scene. It's like we're in the forest, right?

Later on, I loosely handdrawn the tree so that the hanging monkey wouldn't just be "there", along with a deep blue summer sky and some grass flickers.

All I add to do after that was to die-cut my scene with the largest of the SugarCut – Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles and stamp a sentiment on it, adhere the whole panel on a sturdy cardbase and voilà!

I hope to have inspire you to try something new today, too :-)

LDRS Creative: Smile generously

Good morning, all!

Stephanie with you today to feature some gorgeous products from LDRS Creative and I Am Roses. I can't help it, I feel like they come together so beautifully! 

I first inked a stamp from the All Dressed Up line named Everything For Walkies and cropped it so that the halo from the lamppost would be the focal point of the card, popped onto the Dotty Doily die set from Polkadoodles. It is paired with the Daisy Daisy 6"x6" paper collection for some blue hues that are as soft as the chosen sentiment from the Magnolia Splendor set by TLC that was inked on a Regal Frame die-cut. And can you spot the Majestic Frame die hidden on there?

A few close-ups...

Here are the flowers from I Am Roses that I used:

Also, as some people are already prepping for their Christmas stash, make sure to order from our special Christmas section!

The final touch was some Nuvo Drops from Tonic Studios, as always!

Lime Citron : Nouveau défi mensuel!


Qui dit nouveau mois, dit nouveau défi, même en vacances! Alors ce mois-ci chez Lime Citron, on joue dans les tons de bleu, du turquoise au marin, avec un petit air nautique. Et il y a un sketch carte, en prime!

J'ai utilisé plusieurs nouveautés (que dire des flamands et des feuilles!) aux côtés de produits classiques comme une étiquette et un fond étoilé. 

Si vous regardez attentivement, certaines feuilles ainsi que l'étiquette du souhait sont estampées dans différents tons de bleu et rien n'a été plus facile, avec l'encre en dégradé d'Hero Arts.

J'ai contre-balancé les dégradés avec un bleu marin foncé de Lawn Fawn, qui couvre tout aussi bien!

Produits Lime Citron utilisés:

Texture - Ciel étoilé
Matrice de coupe (die) - Etiquettes

Étampe - Tropical
Matrice de coupe ET étampe - Flamand

Étampe - Souhait divers 2

Mini-Kit Étiquettes
En espérant que vous serez nombreuses à participer!
