Forest Friends

-- Good morning sugary peeps --
Janine here --- Halloween's upon us and all those scary witches, monsters and ghosts knocking at your front door. However, Christmas is fast approaching and if you're anything like me you've already started making cards, buying presents and writing up Christmas lists. So to get you in the mood I thought I would make a Christmas card using the sweet digi stamp 'Forest Friends' - isn't it cute. You can buy 'Forest Friends' from Funkykits here

I used a shaped card base and matted it with card and patterned paper. I printed off the sweet Sugar Nellie image and die cut it into a circle together with a scalloped circle mat. The image was coloured with Copic markers and touched up with pencils, then to add a little interest I stamped snowflakes around the circle using distressing inks. To finish off I attached a few snowflakes, gems and a touch of glitter.
To see more Sugar Nellie creations why not join our Facebook page (just search for the Official Sugar Nellie Group).
 For more details of everything I used please check out my blog here.
Thanks for dropping by, and don't forget to call tomorrow to see more cards from my fab teamies.

Poinsettia Girl

Good morning, Fi here and my scheduled Wednesday post!

For today's card I have used this fabby image called "Poinsettia Girl" from Leanne Ellis at Sugar Nellie.

 I coloured this little cutie with spectrum noirs, the dies are brand spanking new which I bought at the SECC at the weekend.  They are 2 separate dies...a Memory Box corner poinsettia and the other is from Poppy actually took me a bit of time to build the flowers up.  I used both red and black card to cut out...I layered them up and then started chopping away the tiny red flowers to stick on the black...phew!!  I also added teeny weeny pearls the centres of the flowers. The backing paper is from Echo Park - Bundled Up which I layered onto black cardstock and then I distressed the edges.

Pop back for more sugar inspiration tomorrow.

Welcome our guest - Lynda

Hi, I'm Lynda Lindley. I live in the beautiful state of Washington with my husband, two daughters, and one crazy smart dog. I am so excited to be a guest designer for Sugar Nellie today!
 I have been crafting for over twenty years; starting out first stamping and then expanding into all areas of paper crafting. I am a self proclaimed challenge junkie and don’t feel grounded unless I'm creating something.
  I love to learn new techniques and find myself getting lost in how-to videos and online classes.
 When I'm not stamping, painting, beading, knitting, or scrapbooking, I can often be seen with inky fingers volunteering at my daughters' schools.
  You can find more of my work on my blog:
The first card features this wonderful new Girl image(available in November)
  I started my project by first deciding on the color scheme and decided that I wanted to back her with this wonderful pattern paper from Fancy Pants from their Park Bench line. I colored her using my Spectrum Noir colored pencils. I used chalk for the very light background color and added the rubon sentiment from my stash. I then fussy cut the image and first matched it with some blue cardstock and then to the card base that was covered with the floral print pattern paper
The second card is this adorable Golfbuddy image. I colored the main image using my Spectrum Noir colored pencils. The background is created using chalk. I then added the sentiment rubon. I mounted the colored image onto two layers of cardstock. The flower and button were added and the card was complete.

Thank you again for the opportunity to design for you all today.

A Gift of Time Together

Morning Sugar Fans... 

Hope you're all well - and for those that aren't... hope you're better soon!

Christine here today with my DT card...  and today I've used another fairy (hmmmm I can see a pattern forming here - would anyone guess I liked fairies?)

I've used 'Time Together' - available HERE from the store at Funky Kits.

She came in digi format, and was a joy to colour (as are all the fairies).  Now.... I could tell you that I wanted to just focus on the image by not putting any more details... but that would be a lie as I just ran out of time so had to throw this together quickly!  And I could tell you that it's perfect... but it isn't, as I put the little postmark stamp upside down!  I mean... who ever heard of being able to put a circle 'upside down'?  Hmmmf!  But I had no time to even cover it with a snowflake, so sorry, it stays! LOL!

More details can be found on my blog HERE - but basically I used my Copics to colour..  an LOTV Festive Trimmings 8 x 8 pad of Christmas paper.. a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch... a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square Die.. and a little postmark stamp from LOTV.

Do drop by tomorrow for more inspiration..

Little Angel...

Good morning sugar fans, Fi here with your Wednesday posting!

Hope you are well!

Now I am sharing this card with you, my lovely friend asked me to make a Thinking of You card for one of her friends whos daughter sadly passed away. I thought I would use this lovely Diane Duda stamp which I think is just so perfect, sadly it's not available but I needed to share it but there are still lots of other Diane Duda stamps available from Funky Kits.

I have used digi papers from The Sweet Shoppe and layered them onto bazzill card.....I added some stitching to each of the layers....yes no doodles!!  The cloud and love heart also came with the digi pack...aren't they perfect?

The flowers are a mix of rolled flowers from die-namics and a couple of flowers which I had bought and I added a couple of teeny weeny butterflies too.

Pop back tomorrow for some more inspiration.
