Sugar Nellie Blog Hop – Duda Daze Release

Woo hoo!! Sugar Nellie have released a new range of fun and whimsical stamps “Duda Daze” by artist Diane Duda. They will be available exclusively at Funky Kits.

To celebrate this first release they are having a massive blog hop. I was one of the lucky people to be sent a Duda Daze pre-release stamp and invited to join the hop.

Here’s the card I made using the stamp “Frog Prince”. This stamp was a delight to colour and I have absolutely fallen in love with the little Princess.


I coloured her with Copic Ciaos and heat embossed her crown with Heat It Up “Enchanted Gold” embossing powder. I added a bit of Sakura clear glaze to her eyes and to the frog, then I cut her out and shaped her before attaching her to the card.

The designer papers I’ve used are “Tea Party” by Stampin’ Up. This is double sided paper and I’ve used both sides (floral and dotty). I cut and layered the flower from the same paper.

I used nestabilities “Mega Scalloped Rectangles” (large) to cut the rectangle mats and I embossed the white one with a “Spots and Dots” Cuttlebug folder. I then lightly inked the edges of both rectangles. I used a Scor-Pal to make the lines around the edge of the card and, finally, I added Papermania pink adhesive stones.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my card, your next stop on the hop is Kat's Blog. Enjoy your journey!

And, finally, a BIG THANK YOU to Karen for sending me the stamp and giving me the opportunity take part in this fabulous blog hop.

Hugs, Clare xx
