CLC and SugarPea Designs Collaboration



Happy National Iced Tea Day!  Today Coffee Loving Cardmakers are collaborating with SugarPea Designs for a fun blog hop.   Read on for the full hop list and prizes!

Now let's get to it!  I have two cards to share today.  Both featuring the Pucker Up set from SugarPea.  


For this first card, I went more traditional.  I stamped the images and colored them. I wanted the pitcher to look like old fashioned Jadeite, so I colored it green. I added some highlights with my gel pen to my ice cubes, to make then stand out. The base is die cut from my stash and I cut it in Kraft.  The DP behind is bright and yellow to draw on the lemons. The combo of the die background, and the green make me happy. 



My second card is a little less traditional, but I couldn't help but think of a hot summer day, fresh brewed tea and fireworks!  And what do you know, it is perfect for the current SugarPea Designs Challenge #56- so why not link it up because today is all about this collab!  


For this one, I started with a white card base.  I used an Echo Park stencil and red and blue distress inks to create the fireworks in the sky.  I added some red striped paper along the bottom and then a strip of sparkly blue paper.  I added a white die cut circle, put my beverages on top and then added my twine. I used a small tag, stamped the sentiment in blue and tied it on. 

OK, you are gonna want to stop by all the blogs for your chance at a prize.  Here is the hop line up:

OMG! I love your 4th of July card with the iced tea pitcher front and center! The faces on the pitcher and the glass make me smile right along with them. Love all that lemony yellow paper on your first card! I think I have to go make more iced tea!
