Sugar Pea Guest Designer : Happy Birthday Card

Hello everyone! Lexa here with my first post as Sugar Pea Guest Designer this month, I'm thrilled beyond words to be one. 2018 is started with a really good start line I must say. Today I want to share a card with color blocking background and I'm using the adorable Go-Pher It stamp.


I started my card with die cut a basic circle dies on a watercolor paper and stamp the cute mole from Go-Pher It with Versafine black ink then watercolor the image with Distress Markers. This image is just getting cuter after the coloring. I also curve and stamp the sentiment on the bottom part of the circle. To make the background I use vibrant colors cardstock in aqua and red, the color blocking make the image more pops out. I also use some dark blue twines in between the colors to add more textures to the card. Keep the rest of the card simple and nice.


Here's a closer look of my card. Thank you so much for visitting by today, I hope you like today's card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day everybody!

Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Blog Hop




Hi everyone, Lexa here and something exciting is happening today.. Pretty Pink Posh is having a 4th Birthday Celebration! Hip hip hooray! Don't forget to join the blog hop until tomorrow. Today is the second day...let's get started. I mix the new release Birthday Friends, Cupid Friends along with some older stamp sets Friends Forever and Wild Rose stamp sets.


To begin my card, I pick a black cardstock and use Love Shaker Dies to create the window for my shaker card. There's no doubt that PPP has one of the most detail and precise dies. All the images are stamped with Versafine black ink and watercolored with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I use the coordinating dies to die cut all the images. I arrange all the images around the love shaker window, some of them are adhered with glue while some others using foam tapes.

Sew Happy We Are Friends

Hello and Happy New Year everyone! Lexa here and today I'll be using some older stamp sets, Missing Ewe and Cute As A Button stamp sets along with their coordinating dies.


To start my card, I stamped the little sheeps with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. As for the buttons, I made it with two colors pink and purple. After I finished with the coloring and all elements, I use the coordinating dies to die cut them all. With pink twines going through the needle, it adds a whimsical design and some textures. I blend Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the background, totally love the color combination in the end.


Arranging every pieces to the card is always the most fun part. Some of the images are adhered with glue while I use foam tapes for some others. It gives such a nice dimensions that's needed for such a simple card. I really hope you like the final result as much as I do.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you and your beloved ones have an amazing day!

Little Angel's Birthday

Hello everyone! Lexa here today to share an inspiration how to use holidays themed stamp set for non holidays one. I use this adorable Little Angels Stamp set and it's coordinating dies together with Angelic Sentiments Stamp.


I blend Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks with a stencil to create the background. Then I layer the silver foil striped vellum in the middle, it looks so pretty. I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers, keept all the colors muted and soft since I want to make it looks angelic so they match the background perfectly. One thing I love about clear stamps is I can bend them as much as I would, just like I bend the sentiment to follow the banner curves. This card is so simple to make and yet will make any little angel's day.


I really hope you like today's card as much as I do. Thank you so much for visitting the blog today. I hope you all have an amazing day!

Sunny Studio : Last Minute Christmas Tags

Hello everyone! Lexa here, have you get all your presents wrapped up and also don't miss the gift tags too. This time of the year is the most wonderful and hectic at the same time. So today I will share an inspiration for last minute tags that maybe can save your time or your life. Hehe.


I use Tag Toppers Traditional Dies together with Fishtail Banner II Dies. Attached them to the paper with low tack tape and die cut them at the same time. Such a time saver.. I blend Distress Inks for the background, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers. After I'm happy with the blending I stamp Frosty Flurries with matching dye inks.
I stamped all the images with Versafine black ink and watercolor them with Distress Markers. The Gleeful Reindeers are so adorable, and no one can get enough those cute gingerbread boy from Jolly Gingerbread. After I finish putting them all together, now it's time to tie up some ribbons and twines to finish the tags.




Thank you so much for visitting the blog today! I hope you enjoy today's post and have an amazing holidays everyone.

Quick and Easy Christmas Tags

Hello crafty friends! It's almost Christmas day, we are all counting down to the most wonderful time of the year. I'm so busy wrapping presents, baking and all. So I decided to create this quick and easy gift tags to get the presents ready on the big day.


I use Scallop Hexagons Die Set for the tag's base, I use both the frames and the negatives to create the tags. I created ten gift tags in total, so I started with die cut the Scallop Hexagons on white cardstock and pink polkadot patterned paper five times each. For the white negatives, I blended Distress Inks in Spun Sugar on the top part and create a gradation.

I stamped all the images from Winter Woodland and Christmas Friends with Versafine black ink then watercolor them with Distress Markers. After I finished with the coloring, I die cut all my images with the coordinating dies. Winter Woodland currently is my most favorite set from PPP with no doubt, I think I will use it anytime not only for holiday's projects. The sentiments are from Holiday Greetings stamp set which has super pretty font that I love.



I pick pink, red and white for this gift tags. I always find it easier to choose what colors I want first before I start to making things. So I'll know which paper should I use or what color the images should be and everything will be look good together. After I finished tied up some ribbons and laces to the tags, I decided to put some matching sequins to add more festive ambience. Luckyly, PPP has Sweetheart Mix Cuped Sequins to match my gift tags. YAY!


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really hope you enjoy today's post. Have an amazing holiday everyone!
