Happy Veterans Day everyone! I wanted to give a special thanks to all the men and women that serve our country. Thank you for keeping us safe and for protecting our great nation!
I cannot believe that this is the final day of my guest designer week! I’m so grateful that Peachy Keen has given me such a wonderful opportunity to create projects with their awesome stamps and to share them with all of you Thank you Peachy Keen and thanks to everyone that followed along all week! I love reading your comments.
Today is Let’s Face It Friday so for the challenge I got to create a design team sample for you. Your challenge is to create a page or card using a PK face stamp that holds your favorite holiday recipe. So, I created the following card. I was dying to create some gingerbread people with PK-521 Winter Faces. Most of the paper is DCWV — except for the green paper on the inside of the card for which I used the Mr. Frosty Imagine cartridge to make the paper. I used the Jolly Holidays Cricut cartridge for the gingerbread people and the Storybook cartridge to weld together two shapes to make the shaped card. I finished it up with a little Copic coloring and some bling. I hope you enjoy it. I cannot wait to see what you create for the challenge. Don’t forget to link it up on PK’s challenge page before the deadline.

Welcome to the second day of my Peachy Keen guest designer week. I’m having so much fun. Thanks for all the wonderful comments that were left for me yesterday. I really enjoy reading them. Today, I’ve created this super cute elf card with PK-533 Simple Simons. I just love the PK face stamps! They are my favorite stamps. The elf cut is from the Cricut Jolly Holidays cartridge.

Hi everyone! I love the color pink and had been wanting to create a pink Christmas card. My Pink Stamper gave me just the right opportunity to do so. Robyn’s challenge was to create a card with 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of blue, and black and this is what I came up with. I added a jingle bell to the hat.
Jolly Holidays Cartridge
My Pink Stamper sentiment
Pink and black cardstock
iRock and blue gems
Studio G snowflake stamp
Fine clear embossing powered
Tim Holtz distressed ink (broken china)
White and blue ink
Designer paper (I created see post below for tutorial)
My daughter came to me and asked me to make a card that she could send to a soldier overseas. Her Jr. High English class has a voluntary project to send cards to soldier and she wanted to participate. So, I let her pick the Cricut cut and then I designed the card with her.
I really wanted to give some new inking techniques a try, so I created this card using an embossing and inking technique to create my own paper.
- Using a Studio G snowflake stamp, I randomly stamped a white piece of cardstock using Versa Mark
- I then used fine white embossing power and a heat gun to set it
- Next, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China) with a Tim Holtz blender and inked the entire page, making darker and lighter areas. The ink will not adhere to the embossed snowflakes so they stay white.
- Finally, I sprayed the paper with Tattered Angels Glimer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds) to give it a frosty look.
I think it turned out awesome. I am entering it in the following challenges. Wish me luck!
Peachy Keen Challenge #41 was to create a card of encouragement. So, I thought I’d made a good luck card for a figure skater and this cute cut from the Jolly Holidays was perfect. Besides, I was itching to try out this new cartridge. I think she turned out absolutely adorable !!! The PK face really makes the girl. I thought the face stamp was going to be too big but it was just perfect. The PK stamp is from the Snow Cuties set. I also inked her face and legs with Stampin Up and Tim Holtz’s inks. For the white parts of her outfit, I glued down Martha Stewart ice cycle glitter with Glossy Accents. For the sentiment, I used my computer and Word and printed it on gray glitter paper from Recollections. I then cut out the sentiment in a square shape and used tacky tape to adhere red velvet ribbon around the corners and topped it with a knot bow. Her hair and jacket were blinged with my iRock. Finally, I used the left over snowflakes from the EK Success snowflake border and glued them on with Dotz. The background designer paper is from DCWV.
