Amy Crockett :: Season's Greetings

Hello friends!!  This is Amy from Scrapping Mommy and today I have a fun Christmas card to share with you that uses the November Stamp Kit of the Month........
The sweet little reindeer, tree branches and sentiment are all stamped with the November kit.  I colored the reindeer with my Copic markers.  I also added some white pen accents with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  Here is a closer shot.....
For the tree, I stamped the branch stamp from the November kit in several different places to make it look like a tree.  I added some stickles and Viva Decor pearl pen accents for ornaments.  the presents are just a square and a rectangle cut with my paper trimmer and then I tied soem ribbon on them.

I hope that you have enjoyed my card today and that your holidays are filled with happiness!!

Raven Baca :: Picture Perfect

Hey everyone, Raven here! How are you on this beautiful Wednesday? Oh my I am really sad about today hahaha. This is my final personal post for Peachy Keen Stamps. If you haven't yet you really need to go on over and apply for the 2013 Design Team!!! There is still some time so RUN~DON'T WALK! Seriously best DT experience EVER EVER!!!! ;)

Today I wanted to make a really fun layout using some pre-made embellishments. I used Peachy Keen backgrounds for both of these embellis.

(Feel free to click on the photo to enlarge it.)
 Okay so here we go with the embellishments. I'll walk you through them both in case you would like to make your own.
First: Grab your favorite background stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.
I grabbed the PK-296 XOXOXOXO A-2 Background Stamp as well as the PK-104 What Time is it?? background stamp.

For the tag I cheated! Yup I used a pre-made white tag from Avery. Did you know you can buy these at Wal-mart for 1.00. YEAH I'm being totally serious.

*Ink up the area of your background stamp that you would like to use. I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar. Now you can use a block to mount your background stamps but I don't I just leave them on the plastic sheet they come on and ink them up right off of that.
*Then lightly press your stamp onto your tag. The images are so crisp there is no need for a lot of pressure.
*The ink will stay wet for a few minutes so I brought out my Stampin Up Pastels and a cotton ball and picked Pretty In Pink to cover my entire tag. This really brings out the color in the Spun Sugar since it is so light.
*Ink the edges with Vintage Photo to match the rest of the layout and you are done. ;)
Easy Peasy right. Okay  now let me tell you how I made the brad...

For the brad you are going to need the I-Top, Small brad template or the small punch (16mm brad) from Imaginisce and the paper of your choice. I used Kraft paper. You are going to repeat the same steps as above just with Walnut Stain Ink. :)
*Then you will punch out (or cut out) the template from the small 16mm brad punch by Imaginisce.
*Follow the steps in this video...Here!
And you are all done. ;)

Here's a complete list of What was used:
Ink- Spun Sugar, & Vintage Photo
Embellishments- Tag, handmade circle embellis, Prima Flowers, Pearl Strand (Teresa Collins) I-top brad, Felt heart, Sticky Keys Alphabet (October Afternoon), Eskimo Kisses Alphabet (Basic Grey), Thread from my sewing machine & lastly Pink and green washi tape.
Stamps- PK-296 XOXOXOXO A-2 Background Stamp & PK-104 What Time is it??
Tools- I-Top, Sewing Machine, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 3/4 circle punch, Martha Stewart scallop circle punch.
Paper- All of the paper is from a paper pack I bought a few years ago.
Adhesive- ATG and dimensionals as well as some Glossy Accents to adhere the pearl strand down and hold down the ends of my threading. :)
Thank you all so much for stopping by. I really hope you are enjoying the layouts as much as I'm enjoying making them. :)

Nikki Foraker :: I ♥ Snow

Hello! For my card today I used one of my all time favorites called Snowman Winter Greeting Card Set. I paper pieced the snowman with papers from the February Peachy Picks Kit. I love that kit so much! It's just full of awesome that neat canvas flag and twine. 
I stamped the I ♥ snow from the Snowman Winter Greeting Card set onto the canvas flag from the February Peachy Picks Kit. I added some rock candy distress stickles to the snowman and tree for shine. 

I hope you're having a peachy day!

Saundra Rega :: Teddy Bear Cuteness :: THANKSGIVING SALE!

Hi Peachy Friends! Saundra here from Luv Scrapping Together!

We are only one day away from Thanksgiving! Many of you are very busy getting ready. I know I am!
Well, I finally succumbed to all the cuteness and bought myself the Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge. I just couldn't resist all those images and great projects that I had seen all over the internet and from all you talented people!
With that being said, for my Peachy Keen feature today I put together a card using one of these cute little bears. Not only that, I put together a few more bears so that you can see several different Peachy Keen Face stamps that will bring these cuties to life!
Get ready for some cuteness overload!
All of the bears I am showing you today were cut from the Cricut Lite Teddy Bear Parade cartridge at 3 inches. I used the blackout for each bear so that I could use my Peachy Keen Stamps.

For the little bee bear I used the eyes from PKSC-10 October 2012. I filled in the whites with my White Gelly Roll Pen and added some blue to his eyes with my Copic marker. The little elf's face comes from PK-146 Piles of 1" Smiles. Again, I used my gel pen and Copic markers.

This cute little santa was stamped with PK-441 Cute and Cuddly 1 1/8" Faces and the reindeer was stamped with PK-755 Critter Faces Large. I added white highlights with my gel pen and I gave shine to all of the bears eyes and noses using Ranger Glossy Accents.

You will be seeing these bears again on my blog in the near future. :)

For my last bear, I created a card. Again, I cut my bear at 3". 

I used PK-135 Medium Bear Facial Features. For this cute little turkey, um bear, I created some texture on his body using my Cuttlebug and the Houndstooth embossing folder. I also embossed the brown strip behind that turkey using Swiss Dots.

I thought it would be fun to put this little guy on an Action Wobble. I'm thinking he looks a little peacked. Poor little guy! I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment using PK-141 Lil' Tweets Thanksgiving.

The inside sentiment is from PKSC-10 October 2012.

As you can see there are many different options that you can use with these bears. I've only given you a few to start. Peachy Keen Stamps offer tons more!

For more details about this card, visit my blog: Luv Scrapping Together.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Glorajean Beardall :: Thanksgiving Prayer Card

Happy Monday! This is Glora from Glora's Crafts and today I wanted to share a Thanksgiving card that I made. I truly have so much to be thankful for and this Thanksgiving prayer just says it beautifully.

I used the Lil' Tweets - Thanksgiving set for the sentiment and the bird. I colored him with some Copic Markers and did a little accenting with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  The Thanksgiving prayer is mounted on the XL Label Die by My Creative Time.   I added a wooden button and some hemp twine to my bow and a little faux stitching around the edges. 

 I hope you all will have a safe and happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Hugs- Glora

Cristina Garcia :: Christmas Joy!

Hey Peachies

It's Cristina From Crafting with Cristina

Today I just wanted to share with you a scrapbook page I made with my Peachy Keen Stamps

This is a 12x12 scrapbook page that I made using PK-148 Snow Gifts and PKSC-11 November 2012

Since Christmas comes Earlier every year, I realized i'm very behind on my scrapbooking. This was from Christmas 2010 EEK!!!


I paper pieced several gifts, and stacked then glued them together. No masking required. 

All of the paper is from K&A Company Kris Kringle Paper pack

I then used the super cute label  from the novemeber Stamp of the month, along with the sentiment to add a fun phrase to my project

I die Cut the letters to form the word "Christmas" with my cuttlebug and using my white Gel pen drew on them to make them look like ornaments.

A few quick labels with my label maker and this project was done.

Only 2  more Christmas Layouts to go! wish me luck!

Have a great day
