SugarPea Designs August Release - Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the September release at SugarPea Designs! Today we are showcasing the To Infinity & Beyond stamp set and the cute sweet incentive, Over the Moon. I decided to make the latter the main focus of my card as that sun hugging the moon is so adorable.


I Copic coloured the main images, and all the planets from the To Infinity set and die cut them out.I wanted a dark background, with a space feel, so I took a scrap piece of blue cardstock I found in my stash and added some splatter with white gouache and several Spectrum Sparkle pens. I heat set it to save a bit of time and adhered it to an A2 (US) sized card.

I wanted the planets revolving around the sun, and off the edge of the card in places, so I cut some strips of acetate, attached the planets to one end and then the other end to the back of the sun. I then attached the sun to the middle of the card. 

The sentiment was stamped on some acetate with black Stazon and then attached with some vellum adhesive, as it is clear. I felt it needed a little sparkle from some tiny little stars.




The release will be available on Friday 24th at 6pm, EST time from the SugarPea Designs website.Don't forget to visit the SugarPea Designs blog every day and comment for a chance to win a daily prize! Come back tomorrow for more release fun! Thank you so much for visiting me today :)

Such a sweet card and I like how they all radiate out from the sun! And a really good fun background too Ruth. Splatters are fab for a galaxy especially as they are unpredictable in size and placement! I like the transparent sentiment strip too. It’s a great card! Lisa xx
