Today I wanted to feature a card I made using the new Sugar Pea Designs release. This was my first purchase with this company and I’m very pleased with the products I bought.
When I first saw sneak peeks of this release, I was instantly drawn to the Arrow Cover Plate. I’m always looking for ways to make my card backgrounds more interesting. I loved the cards that guest designers were creating with the Arrow Cover. I was also smitten with the Indian Summer stamp set featuring adorable fall themed raccoons.
Release day was August 25th (also the same day I got engaged, haha) and I placed my order that evening (after celebrating with our family of course). My package arrived last week and I wasted no time creating my first card. Below I’ll walk you through what I designed using these products.
To make my card I started with an A2 Card base. I’ve thought about making my own but the pre-made ones save me time. I just buy mine at Jo-Ann in packs of 50. They also come with matching envelopes.
Using the Sugar Pea Designs Arrow Coverplate, I die cut and embossed on Gina K Craft Cardstock. I also used the Coverplate again with a teal polka dot paper from the Sugar Pea Designs Spots and Stripes Brights paper pad. I glued down the kraft background and then inlaid the teal polka dot paper in the die cut spaces. I realized after the fact that I could have just glued the teal paper behind the Arrow Coverplate but at the time I had planned on making a second card from the scraps.
I stamped some of the raccoons and pumpkins from the Sugar Pea Designs Indian Summer stamp set with my Misti using Versafine ink. For the first time, I watercolored with my Zig markers using a waterbrush. I think they turned out pretty good. I’m sure I’ll get better with practice though.
After I die cut all my images, I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum with gold powder. To adhere all my pieces I used foam squares and my tape runner. To finish off my design I added some enamel dots from WPlus9.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope I’ve inspired you to go out and purchase this set. It will be great for all your fall and Thanksgiving themed cards.
