Happy Birthday Kathy (The Peachy Queen)

Peachy Keen Challenge #47 : Sketch Challenge :  Happy Birthday to Kathy!

This week is very special over at Peachy Keen as it's the Peachy Queen's BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday Kathy! 

Peachy Keen is one of my favorite stamp companies and if it wasn't for Kathy, they wouldn't exist. I'm always so happy to get my package in the mail when I order from Peachy Keen. I know that I'm getting a high quality stamp and will get a clean, crisp image. I LOVE my Peachy Keen stamps!!!

They are turning this week's sketch challenge into a Happy Birthday Kathy Link Party!!

Here is the sketch to follow:

You can link your birthday card for Kathy and wish her a Happy Birthday and a big Thank you for all her hard work over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog.

Here is  the card that I made for Kathy.

I used Recollections cardstock and the Bright and Jolly paper pack for the base and layers of the card.
I embossed the PKS-11 Igloo in Recollections Glacier Embossing powder and colored it in with a couple of Copics.

I stamped and cut out the fishing bobbers in two different sizes and used the larger ones for the buttons in the sketch.

I embossed the sentiment from the Igloo stamp set as well but left out the word holiday and replace it with Brrrthday from the Pink By Design Snowflakes stamp set. I cut out the sentiment using a Spellbinders Grommet Tag and used some brads to attach it to the card.

Happy Birthday Kathy I hope you have a great week long link party!

Non Traditional Holiday Colors Challenge

Hello everyone,  the challenge this week at Pink By Design is to make a project using Non Traditional Holiday Colors. Forget about red and green try purple, orange and yellow, it's fun to think out of the box.

So here is the card that I made for this challenge.

I started the card by rounding all the corners with my corner rounder then ran the Crafts Too Love Hearts folder through my Cuttlebug for the embossed background.

Using my Spellbinders Heart Circles die I cut out some Pink cardstock from Recollections and then used my Standard Circle die to cut out the main image for my card and layered them together.

The main image is the Peachy Keen Snow Much Love stamp, which I colored in with Copics and used some Liquid Pearls in orange for her nose.

The sentiment is from Penny Black Cold Nose Warm Heart stamp set and is stamped in Memento Rose Bud ink.

For the inside of the card I used the Pink By Design Snowflakes stamp set... It fit in so perfect. I Love this stamp set even though it belongs to my mother... I think that I might hold it hostage a little longer...heeheee.

You should head on over to the Pink By Design Blog and check out all the amazing inspiration and enter the challenge yourself.

Only 11 more days til Christmas!

I used Recollections Cardstock to make a rosette for the base of this ornament. Then I stamped the PK M17 Snow Much Love and colored it in with some of my Copics, a Sakura Clear Star pen, 3 mini brads for buttons and cut it out with a circle die.

Finally some American Crafts Sweet heart ribbon to hang it. Super cute, easy and fast to make. Try making one of your own! Head on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and get some great inspiration for your holiday season :)

Santa Claus Card

Here is the Santa Claus card that I made for the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #45 Just Cards: Shape It Up!

You must make a shaped card to enter.

I used the A Quilted Christmas Cricut cartridge to make Santa Claus. You can't tell in the picture but I used Martha Stewart White Swan Flock and made his beard and all the white fur fuzzy. I also added a white pompom to his hat.

For his face I used the Peachy Keen Groom Faces and gave him some blue eyes and some pink cheeks.

HOHOHOHO! Only 20 more days til Christmas, I can't believe it.

Hop on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and check out all the amazing entries for this challenge.
