SPDMIU29 - Friendship

We're down to the last week to play along with this month's SugarPea Designs Mix it Up challenge and I'm here with some more inspiration for you!

I tried to combine the sketch and the inspiration photo. I started by stamping a loose circle of flowers in various shades of purple. I cut out and popped up the centre of the 'bouquet' and then added two strips with the sentiment. I popped up 3 flowers for more dimension and interest.

Here's a reminder of the rules:

  • Create a new card or project using the challenge provided.
  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDMIU29 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • Add your name and link to your project in the InLinkz shown on the SugarPea Designs blog.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $50!
  • We will announce our Sweet Picks and our Main Winner at the end of each month.
  • The more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning!

EH Pinsights - Lucky

Here's my card for the current Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights challenge. Here's our inspiration:


I focused solely on the bowl in the bottom left corner. I wanted to capture the shimmery glow. And I think I did. On the card. SO much harder to capture it in a photo! Especially on a cloudy day with all this shimmer and shine from the embossing and sequins. I used a tip I got from my friend Tracey McNeely - photograph from above to capture shimmer better. I've also posted a short video on my Instagram feed, where you can see it through the movement of the card.

I used:
-Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony and matching dies
-Essentials by Ellen Up the Happy
-Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colours
-Lucky Clover and Mowed Lawn distress ink
-Concord & 9th Birthday sequins (I think these were a limited edition).
