Peachy Keen Stamps September Release Challenge # 1

Over at the Peachy Keen Connection they are having 2 September Release Challenges.

I choose to do the first one, hosted by Michelle Criswell.

Michelle’s Challenge: Use “3 of Something” on your card or project.

You can make anything you’d like for this challenge, as long as it follows Michelle’s guidelines, AND you need to use the Peachy Keen Stamps of your choice. ONLY entries using PKS will be considered for the prize.

In order to have all the entries in one place, please upload your photo here on the PK Connection and when uploading, tag your photos with the key words SEPTEMBERCHALLENGE#1 (all caps and NO spaces). That’s all you need to do!

So here is my entry for challenge # 1

The Tombstone and sentiment are from the Peachy Keen Frankly stamp set. I used the masking technique in order to get 3 layered tombstones.

The paper is from K and Company Halloween 12×12 paper pack and embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.

A couple of popdots for the tops of the tombstones and the sentiment which I used a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Die to cut out.

For the inside I used the tooth and Happy Halloween sentiment from the Frankly set as well. I used Memento Grape Jelly Ink with clear embossing powder and black embossing powder for the teeth.

I will also be entering this over at CARDZ TV for their Design Team Challenge #14 – “Happy Holidays ~ Pick One!”

A Dino-Mite Birthday!

Yesterday I went to a Surprise Birthday party for my friend’s daughter, she turned the big 10. We all huddled by the door with balloons in our hands, waiting for her to open the door and throw them at her.. SURPRISE!!

She had this huge smile on her face and her eyes wide, in shock walking around in a slight daze.

Good food, friends, family and of course birthday cake = a Dino-Mite birthday party.

She loves dinosaurs so I made this Triceratops card with the Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge.

I made this card the same way as the Happy Piggy Party card, by cutting 2 shadow layers and adhering them together, then cutting all the remaining layers.

I ran some of the layers through my Cuttlebug with the Mesh embossing folder to give him scaly skin. (I forgot to emboss the brown legs.. Oops!)

For the inside of the card I used the first layer and then cut part of the top off so it would fit inside. I used the Dinosaur Party stamp set by Pink Cat Studio for the inside sentiment with some Cottage Ivy Memento Ink.

It was a Dino-Mite birthday filled with lots of love, fun and excitement for a very surprised 10 yr old!
