Fond Farewell Blog Hop

Hello and WELCOME!!
We are so happy you could join us for this
Fond Farewell Blog Hop!

It's nearly impossible for any of us to believe how quickly a year has passed,
yet here we are facing the end of  the term for our 2012 Design Team.  It has been a wonderful year and a truly special blessing to get to know and be a part of the team with these girls, and we could never thank them enough for all of their beautiful work and dedication to Peachy Keen Stamps!

We decided that we'd like to take this opportunity to celebrate our special group of designers, by making this all about them, and what they have loved creating this past year.

They have brought us so very many wonderful creations and I can imagine that the task of  choosing as few as three projects would have almost been an impossible task.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the hop, as our designers take you on a creative adventure as they share their favorite creations from 2012 with you.

Of course, it wouldn't be a true Peachy Keen celebration without prizes, so we've got that covered for ya!  You will have a chance to win something from each designer/blog on this hop.  

What are the prizes, you might ask?  Well, since this is a celebration of favorites, each designer will be choosing their favorite stamp set to give away to one lucky person who leaves a comment on their blog.  Count 'em up, friends, because that a whole lot of chances to win some fabulous Peachy Keen goodness!!  

Your first stop on this wonderful hop is at the talented Kim Score's Blog.  I bet she'll have an adorable  little something to share with you!

Here's the complete hop order, should you happen to lose your way.

Peachy Keen Stamps Blog --  (You Are here)
Heidi Ann Giebel --
Glorajean Beardall --
Michelle Criswell --

We're going to be hopping through this entire week, right up till Sunday at Midnight.  PLENTY of time to hop, and hop again!  

Thanks so much for joining us!  ENJOY!!

Kim Score :: Christmas Bear

Hello everyone!  This is Kim Score from  Today I have a quick and fun project to share with you.  This sweet little Christmas bear was made with the Peachy Keen Cottage Cutz Tear Bear die and a handful of punches.  I love the PK-139 Tear Bear Face Parts so I substituted that for the faces that come with the die.  The faces with the die are very cute, so it's not necessary to use the other set.  But if you like the variety of eyes and noses, I highly recommend this set.  It's amazing what you can do to adapt this cutie to any holiday!  My step by step tutorial to make the bear is below.  Enjoy!

PK-139 Tear Bear Face Parts (optional since the die comes with a set of 4 faces)
*punches, inks and papers listed are from Stampin' Up!
Blossom punch
Full Heart punch
Boho Blossoms punch 
1-1/4" Circle punch
Cupcake Builder punch (or other small circle approximately 1/8" wide)
Chocolate chip, Basic Black, Regal Rose ink pads
Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Cherry Cobbler, Shimmery White card stock (please note that the cocoa and caramel are retired - substitute for what you have)
Green and red designer papers of choice
sponge daubers, chalk brush
unibal white gel pen
dimensionals, liquid glue, scissors

Step 1
Die cut the bear and punch the following pieces:
Full Heart for hat (print of choice)
Boho Blossoms - 1 large flower and 4 small flowers for hat (shimmery white)
Blossom for wreath (print of choice)
12 circles for berries (cherry cobbler)

Step 2
Lightly sponge the edges of all bear pieces with chocolate chip ink.  Stamp the eyes with black ink on head.  Stamp nose onto muzzle.  Add white highlights with unibal gel pen.  Stipple rose ink onto cheeks with chalk brush.  Glue ears and belly pieces onto body.  Stipple rose ink onto ears and belly. Attach muzzle with dimensional.  Attach arms and legs.  Make sure to position arms out for holding wreath.

Step 3
Punch 1-1/4" Circle from center of each Blossom punch.  Sponge edges with coordinating green ink (optional).  Glue flowers on top of each other, staggering the petals.  Glue berries onto wreath.  Slightly curl in sides of bear head to fit through the center of wreath and secure wreath to body with dimensionals.

Step 4
Cut top off the full heart to create curved triangle.  Attach large boho blossom to top with dimensional.  Glue small boho blossoms along bottom for trim.  Glue hat onto head, covering one ear.

Jennie Garcia :: Santa's Mailbox

Hi!! I'm Jennie from Earthy Scrap!! 
I am still working on my Christmas Tree... Yes!! 
Shame on me!!
But on my defense, I was on vacation 
and got home on December 4th. 
Well I remember that I had one of 
the mailboxes Target sells on Valentine's Day.
So I decided to put one on my tree for our letters to Santa.

On the front I used the Happy Snowman and Label Stamp Set.

On the side I used a tulle bow and the happy elf from 
I colored him with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and Clearsnap Smooch. I also used some glitter on his hat.

I really wanted to use this Gingerbread House on the side. 

I hope you enjoyed this happy mailbox!!
Take Care!!
