Yay! Today is the day. All the products you have seen throughout this week will be available in the shop this afternoon. Do you have your list ready?

Last but not least, we're showcasing Wagon Wishes (pssst, this is SugarPea free sweet incentive) and Sending Sentiments set.




Who doesn't love a wagon full of flowers, right? And, of course, I just had to combine it with my favorite set, the previously released Chunky Monkey. I framed the whole scene within the postage frame that I die cut using Postage Stamp CoverPlate. Finished by stamping the sentiment from Sending Sentiments set.

I had lots of fun coloring the flowers. It's what I call my coloring therapy. :)

Let's get on to the card since we have quite a few blog for you to check out.




What makes me fall in love with The Ton is their floral stamp set. Just like this one, the Nesting Peonies is simply stunning and when I saw the chickadee on the set, I got even more excited as I love chickadees. I think  they're such cute & pretty birds.

For this card, I stamped the image on a panel and colored it with Copic. Trim the panel and adhere to card base. Once that done, I stamped the sentiment from Peony Laurel with Noir ink pad. Of course, we can't leave the chickadees. I stamped and adhere a couple of them to the card with pop-dots. Ad, voila.... we're done. :)

So, what do you think of this release? What's on your must have list? I sure would like to know. The 2 sets I used today are my must haves. Now, no hop is complete without a giveaway. Check outthe giveaway detail below & thank you so much for stopping by here. I really appreciate it.

For my 1st card, I combined the Toned Squares and Wild Dahlias set. I've never seen a set quite like the Toned Squares. It's such a fun set to use!! I think this is a great set to use when you need to create a background that's unique but not over powering.




Once I stamped the background, then I work on the flower arrangement. Stamped, die cut and colored all the flowers and leaves and then arrange them on the card. I curl the flowers and then adhere the pop dots on the center of the flowers. I loveeee the font combination on the sentiment. Simple but elegant.





On to my next card. For this, I used the gorgeous Coming Up Dahlias. I stamped and heat embossed the flower with white embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then, I color it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. Once it dry, I adhere the panel to the cardstock base and stamp the sentiment from previously release Pragmatic Wreath set.

Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

* For The Ton Release post please scroll down or click HERE. *

Hi everyone and welcome to the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop. I am thrilled to be a part of a fantastic group of designers as we do our part in spreading Autism Awareness to our crafting community.

This hop was created and hosted by Veronica Zalis. And, I am supporting her effort to spread the autism awareness not only because she's my friend, but also to honor my foster brother in Indonesia teach at school for autistic children. I think it's a honorable, hard work that not too many people chose to do.

3 of the companies that I am designing for are proud sponsor of this hop, SugarPea Designs, The Ton & Honey Bee Stamps. So, for my card I am proudly representing all 3 companies. :)




I first cut the diagonal background using SugarPea Designs Diagonal Striped Cover Plate out of watercolor cardstock and then add the watercolor. Let dry and adhere to card base. Next, I work on the critters & flowers. The beaver is fromSugarPea Timber set  & the bear, bunny & hedgehog trio is from Honey Bee Forest Friends set. The flower is from The Ton Fresh Cut Sunflower Outlines. Color all of them with Copic and once that done I simply arrange them all on the card and adhere with pop-dots.

There's more dimension on this card in person as on top of adhering the images with pop dots, I also like to curl the pieces before adhering them, so they don't look so flat. Finished by stamping the sentiment.

GIVEAWAY:
These are the generous and just flat out fantastic companies that have donated over $1,100 in prizes!! Make sure you visit Veronica's blog for the prize detail and visit all the companies who generously sponsor this hop (see the links below).
Am so happy that you stopped by my blog today. Please be sure to visit SugarPea Designs, The Ton & Honey Bee Stamps for a look at some of the fantastic cards for today's hop! Cheers....

The Ton Spring 2018 Release - Day 1



Hi peeps!! It's time for The Ton spring release. And, we have quite a few sets to introduce. For today, we are introducing Beautiful Bettas, Large Florals: Heritage Rose, Large Dahlia 1, 2 & 3, Dahlia Garden, Build a Motorcycle Dies, and Pop Up Peony Dies.

GIFTS WITH PURCHASE: We have two free gifts with *qualifying* purchases for this release - Toned Squares and Nesting Peonies. This promotion does not apply to prior purchases***. The threshold amount is calculated before taxes and shipping. This promotion will continue until April 10, 2018 at 11:59pm EST or until supplies last. Limit one incentive package per customer. No coupon code needed. All incentive products will automatically be added to qualified orders (they will not show up in your cart but will be added to orders as we pack them).

Spend $200 or more: Receive a 4×6 Nesting Peonies set;

**There must be a new Spring 2018 Release stamp in your order to qualify for our GWP promotion.** These GWP products are available for immediate purchase.

Now, let's get on  to the card. For my first card, I combined all Large Dahlia 12 & 3 set. I colored all of them with Copic, then arrange them on the card base and adhere with pop dots. For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from a previous release set Dearest Peony.  And, for finishing touches I added some sequin mix from Cotton Candy Puff Couture Mix.




Now, this next card is a fun one. I use the Beautiful Bettas set. I stamped it with Arctic Sky and then layered it with Parisian Blue. Then as usual, I reached for my Copic to add some extra colors. Now, for the background, I cut a way pattern from a piece of scrap paper and then use it as a guideline to create some wavy shading. It's really soft (click on the pic to see the card on bigger scale), but I hope you can see some wavy shadow behind the fish. For the water bubble I dotted some enamel drops.

SugarPea Design 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop



Hi peeps!! Welcome to SugarPea Designs 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop! We're glad to have you joining us.

I met Wendy, the owner and brain of SugarPea back in the days when we designed together for There She Goes Stamp. And, when she invited me to join the team it's pretty much a no brainer. I love critters and as you know it, SugarPea has tons of cute critters and beyond. I am so honor and happy that 3 years later I am still part of the team and SugarPea really is one of my favorite company to work with.

Throughout the years SugarPea have released a bunch of cute sets, so I thought for today's cleabration it's only appropriate for me to combine as many sets as I could for my card.




Can you guess how many sets I used to make this card? That moose is the cutest moose on the block in my opinion. I love chunky critters. :) The raccoon is so adorable, the monkey is the sweetest monkey and duck, I love duck. Oh yes, flying pig, who could ignore a flying pig.

Hah... as you can see, I could go on and on talking about SugarPea critters. Do you have a favorite? I find it hard to choose.

If you'd like to expand your SugarPea collection, ow is the time. AS part of the celebration, SugarPea Designs is offering a coupon code: BDAY04 for customers to receive 15% off their entire purchase AND a FREE 4x8 stamp set with any purchase (valid until April 7th 11:59 EST).

GIVEAWAY:
SugarPea Designs will be giving away (4) FOUR $40 gift certificates to the SugarPea Designs shop. Winners will be randomly chosen from all the comments left along each stop of the hop.
Comments will close on April 7th 11:59 PM EST with winners announced on April 8th.
