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!”

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.

You should head on over to Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge Blog and check out the other entries, there are many very talented crafters out there.

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.
