XOXO - SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop


Hey there, SugarPea Designs fans!
Welcome to the SugarPea Designs December Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop where we showcase our newest release!  I have lots of love to share with you today!



Now that you've had a chance to add these sweet sets to your SugarPea collection, we're bringing you even more inspiration! Be sure to hop along and leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win $20 to spend in theSugarPea Designs Online Shoppe!


Here are the fabulous SugarPea Designs stamps and SugarCuts that I used on my card today!




Today, I'm not only loving SugarPea Designs, but I'm loving watercolor!  I recently watched a video that Laura Bassen shared with some simple watercoloring and had to try her technique!  This may be my new addiction!


After cutting the SugarCuts - Heart Journal Card from watercolor paper, I added some diluted pink and red distress ink with a paint brush and let it dry.  I stamped the tic-tac-toe image from Classroom Cupids and the bold sentiment from Special Delivery over the watercolored panel, then embellished it with that darling SugarCuts - Special Delivery Accents envelope.  The Sugar Cuts - Air Mail border was cut along the side of one of the background panels and all was layered together in angled positions.


Make sure you stop by all of the SugarChic's blogs to see what they whipped up for today's hop!




Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

I am also trying some watercoloring on some projects. I must say, this one is a winner. What did you cut the tiny heart by the envelope out of? It looks thicker than paper.
