SugarPea Designs Mix It Up #57 {Hello There}

I took last month off from the SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge, so I'm super excited to be back this month with this fun inspiration photo and sketch! I've been itching to use this bear paired with these florals since the release, so I had a lot of fun creating this design!

I wanted to use both sides of the challenge, so I used blue tones and kept to the sketch pretty close! LOL! Sometimes you have to tweak things here and there to create balance, which I did today!

To begin, I cut a panel of white cardstock so that it would fit onto the scalloped piece from the Card Front Element Builder. I taped the Spirograph Mandal Stencil over the top of the panel and blended on some Peacock Feathers Distress ink. Once that was done, I kept the stencil in place and then added some Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the top. I removed the stencil carefully and set the panel aside to dry while I got to work on the stamped elements of the card.

I stamped the largest flower cluster from the Meadow Motifs stamp set in black and then colored it using an assortment of alcohol markers. Once I was done with the coloring, I die cut it using the Meadow Motifs SugarCuts

I stamped one of the bears from the Hey Summer stamp set and colored him with some brown Copic markers and some pink for the nose, of course! He is die cut using the Hey Summer SugarCuts and set aside. I added some Crystal Glaze over the top of his nose for some fun shine!

I stamped the "hello there" sentiment, which is from the Everyday Sentiments stamp set and die cut it with the Sentiment Strips SugarCuts. Once all of that was done, I was ready to assemble the card. I layered the stenciled panel onto the scallop portion using foam squares. That piece was added to a die cut white base, which also uses the Card Front Element Builder {linked above}, using foam squares as well. I added the flowers, the bear and the sentiment and a trio of sparkling clear sequins. I had a lot of fun using this month's Mix It Up Challenge photo! I hope you get a chance to join us! Thanks for fluttering by!

Nice design Kelly! I like the texture and color your glimmer-paste-stenciled background gives the card.
