I've used Candy Cane Wishes and coloured her with Copics and pastels for shading. I added some loose glitter to her fuzzy mittens and her toque. I added some wink of stella in clear to the stars on the wreath. I sponged around the image with distress ink and used a sharpie paint pen to add falling snow. The paper pad is Simple Stories Cozy Christmas which is available in the KKS store! I tucked in an MFT snowflake die and topped it with a wooden snowflake button tied with brown hemp cord. I added some machine stitching.

My layout is this weeks SSSC. I turned it on it's side to make it work with my image.

I've used PomPom Fairy and the current Deconstructed Sketch for my layout, a few dies from MFT and a very fragile laser cut wooden snowflake and twine embellie, machine stitching, some distress inking and I created the look of falling snow using my Sharpie Paint Pen. I also added some Rock Candy loose glitter to her wings, and all the fur trim and pom-poms.

{RC} Hoot Hoot Hooray!

Hi there! Tonight I have a card to share with you that I made using some awesome Reverse Confetti products, as well as Perfect Paper Crafting Tools. I made this card using the current Reverse Confetti SFYTT. The sketch challenge lasts ALL month long now, so I am super excited about that! I love sketch challenges!

Here's the details! I used Oliver Owl and sentiment. I coloured him with copics and paper-pieced his shirt and tie and adhered his tie just at the top, giving the bottom a little curl to add some dimension! I added glossy accents to his eyes, beak and feet. I popped him up on foam dots onto an MFT stitched circle die. I added some wooden dots, a wooden star and a wood button tied with MFT's twine. the wood dots and button were kind of a boring light colour so I used a sponge and distress ink to give them some nice warmth.
I got my nice even borders using PPC's awesome tools- Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat…two of my fave tools for card making! Remember to use my code: Jenny5% to save on your order!! I am really loving the way this masculine card turned out and I am planning on saving it for my FIL's bday this winter. It reminds me of him, LOL!

Here is the inside….kept it plain and simple, with a strip of DP and another sentiment from the set.

{SPDSS13} You Blow me away!

Hey there, friends! Time for another SugarSketch from SugarPea Designs!! I really think we've got a great sketch for you this week! 

I've reversed the sketch so that my little dragon would be oriented towards the centre of the card. I coloured up this adorable little character, from the Blow Me Away set, with copics, using BG and YG colour families for the body. I really love how this turned out and am going to experiment with blending other colour groups in the future! :) I stamped out a second pinwheel and attached it with a mini brad, so that it actually spins! This card is really simple, but so adorable IRL! I added in some YNS enamel dots. The stitched circle die and circle STAX die are by MFT.

Here is your sketch:

{SPD} Sweet 2 Repeat Hop- October

Repeat blog hop where we showcase our newest release! 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 the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe!

I've used Teacher's Pet on my card today! I was so inspired by my teamie Simonne's note cards using MFT's Lunchbox Die, and I just so happened to be lucky enough to win this die set from the fabulous Laina Lamb, that I created a little thank you card for my youngest sons teacher. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the notepaper section, and added the cute bear on pop up dots to one side, and the large pencil and button/twine embellie to the other. I left enough space to write the teacher's name in the upper area of the notepaper DP to personalize the card! I think his teacher will love it!
