Snowballs 4 Sale!

Here's a quick card I made using Peachy Keen Stamps new face stamp set Happy Snow Couples Assortment.  If you haven't already definitely check out this months new releases, they are all so adorable.  I think it's my favorite, though Kathy always manages to amaze me with her fabulous designs.  I kind of messed up the card a little, I should have moved the bottom two snowballs closer, I didn't want to pull them off and fix it so you can see the white in between, oh well!

The Striped card base was created using PKS Candy Stripe background stamp.

Peachy Keen Stamps November Release Facebook Hop

Hi Peachy Friends!!
Today we are having a Facebook Hop,
You'll start at Emily's Page,
but if you get lost along the way just go back to the
Peachy Keen Facebook page.

Here's my first project

I thought this snow cowboy, (PK-1453 Faceless Cowboy Hat Snowmen and Penguins) was just perfect for this card which is from SVGCuts Happy Trails Kit.  Totally love how it looks!!

Here I used Pk-1440 Maxwell and Barrett and the bag is from the Silhouette Online Store.  I didn't have glitter paper so I used silver embossing powder on the horseshoe.  I also used PK-1437 Square Cow Print for the front cover.

The Penguins are from Pk-1443 Faceless Penguins and the sentiment is from Pk-1449 Holiday Sentiments.  I also used two Peachy Keen backgrounds, Scalloped Rooftop and Large Polka Dot.

Peachy Keen Stamps will be giving away one $50 Gift Certificate in celebration of this release! That winner will be selected from all the Facebook Page comments on all of the stops on this hop, and will be announced on Monday on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog and Facebook Page. Good Luck to you and thanks for joining us!!

Owl Christmas Card - New Cricut Explore

Hi Everyone!!  I was one of the lucky people who picked up the Cricut Explore with a 60% coupon from Joann's.  They made a huge mistake letting the coupon apply so I got it for $119, can't beat that.  I really wasn't looking to pick one up since I have my Silhouette Cameo but for that price I couldn't pass it up.

Here's a quick card I made with it, Design Space is very easy to use, but it's nothing like Make the Cute or Silhouette Studio, luckily I have the 1.9 version of SSDE on my computer so I can save my designs as svgs and import them into design space to cut.  I'll be able to use my silhouette files which I'm very happy about, I imported some of these cuts from the Silhouette Store.  So far I like how the Explore cuts and it's much quieter than my cameo.  It also came with a bluetooth adapter so I used my Surface Pro 3, it worked great, really love that.  More come as I find time to play!!

Reindeer With Lights Christmas Card - PKS Face Day!

Hi Everyone!!  Here's my Peachy Keen Face Day project I'm sharing over on their blog today!
I used the eyes and mouth from the PK-1435 Fall Face Parts Medium set to create this cute reindeer. 

This set is so perfect for cards, I'm very happy Kathy made this set in two other sizes also, Large and X-Large.  They are great for treat boxes, scrapbooking and home decor projects.

The sentiment, musical notes and diamonds are all from the PKSC-31 July 2014, the stamps in this set are so adorable, great for your Holiday cards.

I created the background using some Versamark on the PK-1381 Polka Dot Background stamp and heat embossing with some Pearl White powder.  I used a blender tool and added the Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

The Reindeer with Lights is from Miss Kate Cuttables, the Cloud Speech Bubble was created using one of My Creative Time's Dies and the background with stitching is from Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies.

Have a wonderful day!!

Let It Snow - My Creative Time

This tag was made using Dies and Stamps from My Creative Time.
The bag was created using the We R Memory Keeper's Gift Bag Punch Board.
As much as I love my Silhouette Cameo it's so nice to have dies and these punch boards.

For the tag base I used both the XL Label and Stitched XL Label Dies.  I cut out two stitched label dies and used the Large Cloud Bubble Edge die on one to create the snow bottom.  Using the Let it Snow sentiment and snowflakes from the Winter Cheer Set I stamped using Versamark on white card stock and embossed with white pearl powder.  I sponged the tag with Tim Holtz Stormy Sky distress ink and added some dots with a white gel pen.  The deer is from the new Oh Deer set, I also stamped and embossed the bag with the Winter Cheer snowflakes.  These stamps and dies are so wonderful!!
