Amber Kroening :: The Beauty of Nature

Hello!  Amber here, from Bella Rose Cards.  Today's card features stamps from two of this month's add-on sets; Clearly Autumn Pint Jar Contents, and Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents.  As you can see, these sets can be wonderful even without the jars!  I started by stamping the pine leaves on kraft cardstock, then I heat embossed them with green embossing powder.  I inked the edges and matted it on to a cream cardstock layer, and added a cream bow, then adhered it to an orange card base.  Next I stamped my sentiment in brown, then stamped a leaf with orange ink and colored it in with a yellow marker.  Again, I inked the edges, then matted in orange and adhered it to my card.  That's all for now!  Thanks for stopping by!

Candace Zentner :: October Guest Designer!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our October Guest Designer 
Candace Zentner!!!

I am a stay at home mommy of three little girls and I love to use crafting as a way to unwind at the end of the day. Before I had my girls, I was a Civil Engineering Technologist, but I just couldn't go back to work and miss out on all the special moments with them as they started to grow up. I have always been into scrapbooking, but it wasn't until I started creating layouts for my first daughter that I really got bit by the crafting bug. My favorite things to make are scrapbook layouts, cards and treat packages. I love being able to create fun projects, and I also love interacting with all the amazing ladies I have met throughout my crafty journey. Aside from crafting, I am passionate about photography, interior decorating,  traveling (mostly to DisneyWorld), shopping and anything fun I can do with my little princesses. 

Please join us in extending a very warm welcome to Candace and drop by each Tuesday this month to see what crafty goodness she'll be sharing with her Peachy Keen Stamps!!


Hey everyone! Candace here from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses! I am SO excited to be here! The very first set of stamps I purchased was from Peachy Keen over three years ago and I have been in love with PK ever since. It feels amazing to be a guest here this month! Somebody pinch me!! ;) 

I can't wait to show you my project today... 

I know that summer is over, but I think I am in denial...  It snowed here three days ago, but I refuse to put my flip flops away! :) 

These little popsicles are cute, but adding some PK faces takes the cuteness through the ROOF!!

I used two of my favorite face assortment sets on my popsicles: Sweet & Innocent and In the Garden. To make my cute little treats stand out, I popped them up using some foam stickers. 

Here is everything I used to make my card...
- Popsicle SVGs from Miss Kate Cuttables
- American Crafts washi tape
- Glossy Accents
- Pebbles Chalk
- Sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I cannot wait to show you my next project!!

Gigi McKellips :: BOO to You!!

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug here. I have a card and fun tutorial for you today! I used the skull stamp out of the NEW Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents stamp set to create the background on this card.
This is such a great way to make your own backgrounds and it is SO SIMPLE!

To create the background you will need the following items:
VersaMark Stamp Pad
White Chalk and Chalk Applicator
Skull Jar Filler stamp

I stamped the skulls using VersaMark Ink onto a black piece of cardstock slightly over lapping each stamped image. It is OK to overlap this stamp because it's such a busy stamp that you won't be able to see it. Let it dry for a minute and then chalk up your applicator with white chalk. Using a circular motion, cover the entire thing with white chalk. The more you rub it, the more of the white will stick to the black paper and make the skull images pop. 
AND there you have it! A really fun background that was super simple to create! Now your ready to make the card!

I made the card and ghost using SVG Cutting Files Wavy Card Base and Chibi Pumpkin and Ghost files. I used my sewing machine to sew around the card and down the middle going over the banner. The banner I created using the Lacy Banner Metal Dies and stamped and cut out a single skull from the jar contents stamp.  I stamped the face onto the ghost using Peachy Keen's In The Garden 1 1/8 inch face stamps and pop dotted the head. The BOO sentiment was stamped using Peachy Keen's PKSC-22 October 2013 stamp of the month set. 

I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial and card. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!
