Find Your Paradise

It's time for another Mix it Up Challenge at Sugar Pea Designs so check out this week's challenge:

I played along with the sketch this week and let the pineapple from Pineapple Paradise take centre stage.

This is a very simple card.  I die-cut the pineapple then stamped it using Sunshine and Fern inks.  The beautifully-scripted sentiment was stamped using Stazon ink onto vellum and die-cut with the Stitched Flags die.  The vellum was then stitched onto a piece of ombre patterned paper and adhered to a white card base.  Lastly, I adhered the pineapple using foam tape.

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: SPDMIU5 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!
