Caffeine Addict

Hi and welcome to another fabulous Mix it Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs.  Here is this week's challenge:


I stuck with the sketch this week and came up with a card that I'm also submitting to the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hog.



I used my Zig markers to color this fun image die-cut with the Coffee To Go Cup.  I used Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles to make my white panel for the cup to rest on.  The straw from Caffeine Addict was stamped on the cup and lid to make it look like it was inside the cup then I also die-cut the straw and popped it behind the cup to add to the illusion.  The banners were hand cut and the patterned paper came from a pack of CTMH paper my mother gave me.



Thanks for visiting!


Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

  • Create a new card or project using the sketch provided.
  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDMIU4 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $50!
  • We will announce our Main Winner at the end of each month.
  • The more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning!
