Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch – Aug 2012

This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog a Sketch Challenge is going on. I love Peachy Keen stamps, since my drawing talent is stick men and stick woman.

Peachy Keen Challenge 32 – Sketch –  Aug 2012

So here is the card that I made:

I used the Cricut Lite Recess cartridge for the little school girl sitting at her desk. The cardstock comes from Recollections Back to School collection.

I used the Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids Assortment for her face. Then used my Sukura Gelly Roll Pen in White for her eyes and my Bic markers for the rest of the face.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Simply Everything. This is a great stamp set full of sentiments for every occasion.

The Tree stamp is from a local Dollar store which I colored with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to the apple to give it shine.

The inside sentiment is from a Studio G set that I got at Michaels.

Beetle to the Rescue!

This week on one of my adventures to Costco, I did something that was really silly. I was having rather a bad day and then… I locked my keys in the car along with my purse and cell phone. What a disaster… I can’t believe that I did that… really. I quickly ran around the car trying all the doors even the trunk but no luck, locked nice and tight. A little bit of panic set in and then I thought  I’d go to the tire center, maybe someone there can help me. No one to be found, I can hear them in the back but still no one comes out, now what???

I start walking back to my car when a yellow VW Beetle drives into the same aisle as me only 2 spots over… I wonder if they can help? So I made my way over and asked if they happen to have the number to the VW line (which is in the owners manual/which is in the locked car). Unfortunately they didn’t have the book in the car but they were members of BCAA.

Next thing I knew she was on the phone, calling them to help open my car. I can’t believe that they did that for me, I was so shocked and so thankful for their kindness. I wanted to repay them but they said it was fine and that they were glad they could help. It’s nice to know that there are still people out there that would help someone if they needed it and ask nothing in return.

I wanted to make them a Thank you card, so after I got into my car I wrote a quick note on a napkin, gave her my blog address and stuck it under the windshield blade. Hope they get a chance to see it, because I truly appreciate their generosity that day.

I made a different type of card this time, I made a twisted easel card.

I stamped my Imaginisce Vroom stamp in Memento Dandelion ink and then colored in with a yellow Copic.  I then stamped Thank you from the Pink By Design Here Comes the Bride stamp set. I added some Lemon Divine Twine and used the Beep Beep Cuttlebug folder for the tire tracks.

I used my Spellbinder’s Ovals and Scalloped Ovals and embossed the front sentiment. It is from the My Favorite Kind stamp set by Pink By Design. The inside sentiment is a stamp from Stampin’ Up.

So if you read this – here’s a BIG THANK YOU from me to you!

I will also be linking this to the Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday. Stop by and check out what everyone has been up to.

Having a Ball!!!

Hi everyone. Well I have finally gotten around to making a post. I was away camping enjoying what little summer we have had.

I love the outdoors and like to spend as much time as possible out there when I can.

The card that I made this time is one of my favorite places to be in the summer…the Beach. I used the Cricut Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge.

I cut the dolls, bathing suits and hair all at 5″. Since I can not draw at all I used the Peachy Keen Dolly Dumplins Face Asst. stamp set for her and the Peachy Keen Groom Faces for him.

I cut some waves from Life’s a Beach Cricut cartridge and took some Sookwang tape and some decorative sand that I had lying around to make the beach. The beach ball is from the Pink by Design Just Beachy stamp set, stamped, colored with Copics and cut out.

The  sentiment is from the Simply Everything stamp set by Pink by Design.

I added some American Crafts ribbon, a Recollections flip flop brad and some real baby shells that I got at a second hand store to finish the card.

For the inside of the card I used one of the left over waves, stamped the sun from Stampendous Summer Scene stamp set with Memento Dandelion Ink and then cut it out.

The inside sentiment is from the Pink by Design Summer Vacation stamp set.

Well I hope you all get to have a ball and spend many fun days at the beach.

I’m entering this card into the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #28 – Anything Goes.

Camping under the stars

Oh what fun….. at the end of the week my friend’s daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn’t it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12×12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from Michaels.

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lotpaper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet…… I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  “Welcome Campers”.

I made a 3″ girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you’re like me …. you can’t draw, so I used Peachy Keen’s PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them “roasted”… heeeheee.

I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons… the tree and the blue tent as “grommets”.

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.

Sweet Birthday Wishes !!!!

Today I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made for one of the ladies that I work with.

Yesterday was her birthday and we always celebrate by giving each other a card and of course ………. any excuse to eat cake.

I started by running a piece of teal cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Seeing Spots folder and attached it to the pink card base. I just love this pink and teal cardstock from Recollections.

The main image is a stamp from Great Impressions Stamps called Dessert Piled High…. yummmmm

I colored the image in with my Copics and a few Bic Markers. For an extra little bling I used Glossy Accents for the cherry on top, as well as some Stickles in Crystal.

I put two thin layers behind the main image and then used some popdots for dimension but only for the top half.

“Sweet birthday wishes” comes from the Say It Sweet stamp set from Pink By Design. I have a sweet tooth and this stamp set has a lot of great sentiments for anyone who does.

I used the Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders Grommet Tag Die set to cut out and then stamp the sentiment on. I then attached it with some Flower Brads from Recollections that I picked up from Michaels.

I think that everyone should take this advice on their birthday too. I know I do…heeeheee

I used two different stamp sets for the inside of the card. I used the Pink by Design Simply Everything stamp set for the “It’s Your Birthday !” and the Inkadinkado Eat Cupcakes set.

I will be posting some more birthday cards soon… May is such a busy birthday month.
