October 2017 Viva la Verve Sketch


Have you seen the great sketch at Viva la Verve? Oh it's a fun one...simple yet elegant! I decided to ink up my newest Verve set called the Autumn Leaves stamp set and the Falling Leaves die set. 


I stamped the leave in Burgundy, Yellow and Green and then stamped their veins in a dark gray overtop...I purposely did not line up the leaves with their veins as I wanted to give the card a more "freestyle" whimsical feel.


You should come and join the fun at Viva la Verve
There is a great prize up for grabs! The link list will be up for the whole month and we'll choose a winner on November 2 to win a $40 gift voucher to Verve.

SugarPea Designs-Holiday Product Release Day 3



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs Holiday Product Release! Today we are featuring my two favourite sets! I love the boughs and the pine cones and the snowflakes are super delicate!


I love using both traditional and non-traditional colours on cards. This snowflake card will be easy to mass produce. I think I will skip the top layer and just do a single layer card for my other cards. I love that you could use any colour combo! Pink and greens are so pretty together for Christmas!


When I work with boughs and cones, I love adding layers. The new paper pad from the last release called "Spots and Stripes" has the perfect RED paper in it! 

I stamped the boughs in a dark green and then stamped again without re-inking the bough...that way I got the nice faded look I wanted.
