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!

  12. 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!)
