Today, I have a couple of cards using the SugarPea Designs set



and also



I don't know about you, but I think everyone loves to receive pretty mail on their birthday!

Something that I like to do is make shaker cards.  It is with the intention that the recipient takes apart the card and upcycles the shaker contents:

cardbase:  dcwv  stamps:  sugarpea designs/special delivery ink:  zing black, ranger archival/jet black, copic marker  other:  paper source glassine envelope, freckled fawn washi, studio calico wood veneer, misc doily

 Today's card contains various heart shaped wood veneer in a glassine envelope.

My second card uses the sweet SugarCuts:

cardstock:  recollections white/110, stampin' up cherry cobbler  stamps:  sugarpea designs/special delivery ink:  fresh ink charcoal, ranger archival/jet black  other:  sugarpea designs sugarcuts - special delivery accents  other:  impress gold washi

This tall skinny card was being photo shy.  Do you see the difference in color between the stamped envelopes and the sentiment?  The envelopes were stamped with Fresh Ink charcoal and the sentiment is Ranger Archival/Jet Black.  I used the SugarCuts with Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler. 

 Can you see the smidge of gold washi behind the heart?


That's it for me...next on the hop is the super talented Dina Kowal!
