SPD JANUARY Project Pea Blog Hop

Welcome to SugarPea Designs January
Project Pea Blog Hop

Each month we challenge our fabulous team of ProjectPea Designers 
to create FUN & CREATIVE projects that are sure to make you look at your stamp sets with brand new eyes!

I made an exploding Tooth Fairy Box
for the tooth fairy to leave money in exchange for that tooth.  I was inspired to make this exploding box after seeing it on Miriam's BLOG

I started with my white panel 5 5/16 x 5 51/6. 
I stamped it all over using the new 
Build A Background - Basics
This set is only available through the new Incentives Program until it releases in March. 

Place an order of $60 or more (shipping not included)
and you will receive a FREE stamp set that will not be available for sale in the store until the next bi-monthly release!  That's right! 
  You will receive a FREE stamp 2 months in advance of its release in the SugarPea Designs online shoppe 

Using the Envelope Punch I punched and scored at 1 5/8 and 3 3/4.
Next I rotated the paper and lined up on the score lines and punched and scored all around. 

I rounded all  the pointed flaps using the outside punch on the Envelope Punch Board. 
This gives it a more finished look. 

After I folded all the score lines, 
I made a score line in the little triangle in between the flaps. I scored in the center of it down to the tip of the triangle.  This will be folded in a valley fold, it takes the place of cutting and pasting to make the box. 

Now here is what the box looks like open. 

I made a belly band to hold the box together.
I cut a strip of cardstock 3/8 x 7 3/4.  I made a heart strip using the SugarCuts Heart Border Die that I adhered to my belly band.  I wrapped the band  it around the box and folded the creases as I went. 
 Here is how I extended my heart border to be the length I needed.
First I only cut up to the last 3 hearts. 
 Here you can see I did not cut all the way through at the end. 
 I lined up the die where it left off, layed my B plate
 just under that so it would cut after that area so it would connect. 
Here you can see how much I extended it beyond the die. 
Love this die. 
 Now for the topper.
I cut out two circles using SugarCuts Layered Treat Labels Die Set.  Then I stamped one with this adorable Tooth Fairy seal using the new release Fairy Sweet. I heat embossed using this fabulous ZING Flourescent Neon Pink Embossing Powder that my sweet friend Judy Rozema sent me. This is my first chance to use it. It is awesome stuff, thank you Judy.  
 I adhered the two circles with 1/8" thick of dimensional tape.
 Then adhered the whole topped to the belly band using score tape. 
 I love how that heart border looks using the metallic paper. 
I just love how it looks when it is open.

SPDSS19 - Mail For YOU

There's a new SugarSketch
 I used a diagonal striped pattern paper for my background
I love how it looks like a post stripe when I left a 1/16" border. 

 For the vertical panel I cut a strip of hearts using the new
 Then I stamped this cutie using Happy Mail 
To color him I used the simple Copic coloring technique using one marker for each color, letting 
it dry and layering for shadow. Then I went back and used grays for deeper shadows. 
For the inside
I made an insert from copy paper and stamped using Happy Mail and Special Delivery

FS416 - Let's Fiesta

I'm playing in today's Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers
Congratulations Tracy Valure aka scrapgirl1210
 I am so delighted Tracy is being featured this week.  
I've admired Tracy's wicked coloring skills through being on the SugarPea Designs DT together.  Tracy's gallery is full of amazing creations. I had fun just drooling over them til I chose THIS card of Tracy's to case (which I fell in love with the first time I saw it during that release). 
 I took inspiration from Tracy's white image panel, making that my entire card. 
My husband is Mexican and I know he'll love the rich colors.  Doesn't this image just make you smile! 
Here's the inside.
I used another image and sentiment from the set.

Tiddly Inks Release - Love Hearts

There is a BIG new release on the Tiddly Inks Blog today. 
 I'm using the one of the new releases
 I only used Wryn's head and her hearts.  
I cut out a second set of hearts, colored them up and folded them back and forth like you would to make a chain and only adhered the heart with the hand at each end. Looks great IRL. 
 I used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to make a gradient background for Wryn. 
For the inside
I created an insert from copy paper by printing out this sentiment from the set and colored in only the heart. 

Stamps: Wryn - Have Heart (Tiddly Inks)  Paper:  Recollections White 110# (Michaels), Copy Paper, Neenah Solar White 80#, Memorabillia (Terry Collins)  Ink: Printer, Copics: R20, Y21, E000, B00, N0, C1, C3, Worn Lipstick Distress Ink (Tim Holtz)  Accessories: Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Scotch Dimensional Tape, Heart Journal Card SugarCuts Die (SugarPea Designs), Spellbinders Ovals, Cuttlebug
