SugarPea Designs - Spring Product Release - Day 4


Welcome to day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Week! Two more days of inspiration, and then the products will be available for sale on Friday evening!
All week long I've had projects featuring brand new products from SugarPea Designs that will be available on Friday at 6pm EST! Each day has had a blog hop of sorts, where you can hop along and check out what each SPD designer & guest has created with the day's featured product! I will have that link list for you at the end of my post. {All product links below will not go live until Friday evening.}

Today I am featuring the Eyelet CoverPlate, 24 Carrot Friend stamp set, and the 24 Carrot Friend SugarCuts. I've also used the heart from the Postage Stamp CoverPlate. If you couldn't tell...I am a little obsessed with that new die set. I adore it!

I wasn't able to get to a process video for this post, but if you haven't seen them...I did do videos for my first 3 posts this week. You can go back to each post to view them, or just head over to my YouTube Channel! :) I'm still really new at this, but having a ton of fun learning how to do it! If you'd like, you can also follow me on Instagram! I post all of my projects there, along with really cute photos of my dogs & daily life in my Stories.

If you've been around my blog at all, you know that I don't color a whole lot, and have just very basic skills at it...but this adorable bunny was WAY too cute & I had to make sure he graced my card for today! I kept the coloring very simple, and used the lightest shades possible from my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes. I also covered the carrot with Wink of Stella shimmer...and it's such a fun touch!


To start, I created an A2 card from heavyweight white cardstock and set aside. I cut another block of white cardstock to the same size, and blended the background with Distress Oxide inks. (I used Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade & Squeezed Lemonade - all are linked at the end of the post.) I sprinkled it with water to reveal that gorgeous reaction that oxides have, and then sprayed it with shimmer spray. Once it was dry, I adhered it to the card front.

Next I diecut the Eyelet CoverPlate from white cardstock, then proceeded to diecut the heart from the middle. I trimmed the edges just a tiny bit to make it a little bit smaller than the card base, then mounted it to the card front using foam dots.

Next I stamped the bunny to white cardstock in onyx black Versafine using my MISTI. I almost always use my MISTI when stamping now, as it gives me peace of mind that I won't have to completely start over if I don't get a good enough stamp impression the first time. Then I proceeded to color the bunny in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. (Colors used: light gray, pale pink, orange & pale green - they will all be linked below.) I used small amounts of water and a size 2 watercolor brush to soften & blend the colors.

Once the cute little bunny was dry, I cut him out using his coordinating SugarCut, and colored the carrot with my Wink of Stella shimmer pen. Then I adhered him to the right side of the heart using foam dots.

I decided that I wanted the sentiment strip to be ink blended as well, so using the same colors as the background I added the inks to a white cardstock strip & did the water reaction. Then I stamped the sentiment to it in onyx black Versafine ink using my MISTI. I always feel like I need to stamp twice when stamping to oxide inks in order for the stamping to really stand out.

I cut a banner edge to the left side of the sentiment strip then adhered it to the card front with foam dots, tucking the right side underneath the little bunny. The final step was adding my signature jewels to the front tucked here & there!

I've started sharing these photos, as this is all you need to create this adorable little bunny card - apart from tools, adhesives & basics like cardstock. You really don't need a lot to create an amazing card, and most of these supplies can be used over & over before they need to be replaced. I absolutely purchase new items each month to freshen my products, but I do stick to a pretty strict budget. I like to invest in items that I will get a lot of use out of, like distress oxide inks of Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and make sure that I am using like items already owned before I purchase anything similar.

That is my card for you today! I hope that you like it! Now let's get to the rest of the information you need. First up, here is the link list:
