Pure Angel

Good morning sugar fans! 

-- It's Janine here with my Wednesday post --

  I've been wanting to colour this little sweetie in for ages - she's called 'Pure Angel' by Diane Duda. Now I know she's not available in the Funkykits store (sorry!) but there's loads of other Diane Duda stamps and digital stamps for sale. Just go to Funkykits (the home of Sugar Nellie) using the link.


To make my card I matted it with 2 patterned papers edged with distressing ink. I stamped the angel onto watercolour card, then using Inktense pencils I coloured her in; to colour the background I used 2 different distressing inks. I then die cut the finished image and matted and layered it onto coloured card stock. To finish off I used glitter on her wings and Wink of Stella on her dress, then added a die cut flower and a few pearls.
For more details of everything I used please check out my blog here.
Thank you for dropping by, and don't forget to call by tomorrow to see more sweet inspiration from our fab Design Team.
Don't forget about our Sugar Nellie and  Sugar Bowl Design Team Call Out - there's still time to apply.

On the Wings of Love

Hi Everyone :)

It's Faye here, and I'm afraid I've been thinking about Christmas again! I know, I know, bleurgh!! But, bleurgh is not a word I would use to describe On the Wings of Love. She just wanted to be coloured....

Well, it'd be rude not to oblige. One of those cute little presents might be for me!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day.

Gorjuss - You Brought Me Love

Good evening sugar fans! 

It's Janine here with my Wednesday post - sorry it's late, I'm getting over the flu and I think

I've mislaid my brain.

So here it is, my Design Team card for you today. I thought I would use another Gorjuss girl stamp; this one is called 'You Brought Me Love', and again I used one of my fav colour combos - green and lilac. Funkykits (the home of Sugar Nellie) have a great collection of both new and old Gorjuss Girl stamps - so why not check them out..

To make my card I used a white shaped card base which I matted with patterned paper. I stamped the Gorjuss girl onto watercolour card (masking off little squirrel and leaves), and coloured her and the background with distressing inks. The completed picture was die cut, along with 2 more ovals mats from lilac and white card. All the ovals were then attached together and added to my card base. To finish off I added some die cut flowers and a few punched out butterflies.
For more details of everything I used please check out my blog here.
Thank you for dropping by, and don't forget to call by tomorrow to see some sweet inspiration
from our fab Design Team.
---- Just a little reminder ---
Don't forget about our new Gorjuss stamp launch party competition - there's still time to enter your Gorjuss card. There's a great prize on offer, so what are you waiting for!
