Gigi McKellips :: Snow/Sky Tutorial

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I am here to share a tutorial for a snow/sky background with you today. 
Here is a pic of the card we will be making today.


Peachy Keen- PK-1443 Faceless Penguins
Chalk Ink in light blue 
Stamping blender brush
Scrap paper
Copic Markers
To start with the background, I stamped the tree from the Faceless Flake and Christmas Tree stamp set onto my card mat to the left side. I also hand cut a piece of white scrap paper for the stencil line for the snow. 
Place the scrap piece of white over your card in the center and ink up the blender brush with the chalk ink. Using circular motions, ink in the sky with the blending brush. It’s ok to go onto the tree a little as long as you’re using a light color.
When the sky is all inked in, remove the white scrap paper and there you have it! A snow/sky background!
Now you will color the tree on the background, and stamp and color the extra tree and penguin. Cut them out with scissors along with another piece of scrap white for the snow. This doesn’t have to be perfect, snow comes in all shapes and sizes LOL! Do make sure it is the width of your card mat though. 
Ink the edges of your small snow piece with the blue and then you’re ready to assemble.
I mounted the second tree, penguin, and snow on pop dots to give this card lots of depth. After it’s all put together, the last thing to do is stamp on the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp  set. 
Here is the card all finished. 


I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial and will try this technique for yourself! 
Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!

Saundra Rega :: Gift Cards With A Happy Face

Hi Peachy Friends!
Saundra here today to share a fun Peachy Keen Stamps Face Day project.
I know many of you, like me, have probably bought a few gift cards to give as holiday gifts this season. Gift cards are an easy gift but don’t seem to have the same impact as other gifts because there isn’t much to unwrap. So, I like to create gift card holders for my gift cards.
Of course, if you add Peachy Keen Stamps you have really brought them up a few notches.
Check these cuties out!
The gift card holder itself is just a 6×8″ piece of cardstock that I scored at 3″ on the 6′ side and 4″ on the 8″ sided and folded. I cut away a portion on the inside and glued it down the center to creat a pocket for the gift card.
Here is what it looks like on the inside:
The fun part was decorating the outside.
For my cute faces I used a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Sweet Winter Faces. Ech one has a different Peachy Keen Stamp Face.
I love PKS PK-1445 Happy Snow Couples Face Assortment. I colored the cute snowman’s face in with Copic Markers and added a sentiment from PK-859 Christmas Greeting Words.


My penguins face is from PK-1448 Happy Penguin Couples 1 1/8″ Faces and the sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.


This cute ginger’s face is from an oldie but a goodie set. PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment was perfect for this ginger! The sentiment is from PKSC-31 July 2014.
I had a lot of fun putting these guys together and hope I’ve provided a bit of inspiration to you, too!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Jessica Esch :: Holiday Card :: Trendspotting

Hi everyone! It’s Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap
I’m here to share a trendspotting project with you today.
Christmas is in the air and GOLD is big right now so while searching the wonderful world of Pinterest I came across this gorgeous picture. 
Trendspotting: Leopard print and black and white Christmas decor!
Pinterest Image found HERE
I used the cow print as the basis for my project as well as the gold, black and white color combo to make my Christmas card using 3 of the newly released stamps from PK. 
Here is what I came up with….
 I love heat embossing….love the way it looks and the texture it adds to a project. I started this card out by using the PK~1437 Cow Print Square 4.25″ and heat embossing it on kraft cardstock using some gold embossing powder. Then using the sentiment from the new PK~1449 Holiday Sentiments set, I stamped it onto the kraft cardstock base in between a small space I left purposely left between the cow print.  For that adorable image, I used the new PK~1439 Charlotte & Junior stamp, colored him using my copic markers and to make his vest match the cow print background, I used a gold pen to color it in.
Here is another angle of my card where you can see the beautiful heat embossed background. I also placed the image up on some foam pop dots for a bit more dimension :)

Brigit Mann :: Holiday Gift Set :: Face Day

Hi Peachy Friends!!
It’s Brigit here from Brigit’s Scraps!
Today I have a cute card and gift bag to share with you!
I love how Peachy Keen Stamps brings a project to life,
it makes it so much more special to give!!
I used two of the adorable faces from the PK-757 Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Assortment pack.  Totally love this assortment, the faces are so cute and a must have for some of your animal cutting files.
The Be Jolly sentiment if from the PKSC-31 July 2014 set and the Happy Holidays is from the newest release PK-1449 Holiday Sentiments.
The Santa Mouse Ornie is from SVG Cutting Files.  I used My Creative Time’s Bunch of Fun Circles Dies to cut the hole out of the bag.  I also used the background die and two label dies from Jaded Blossom.  The bag is from the Silhouette Online Store.  Paper is Lawn Fawn’s Snow Days, I like to use 6 x 6 paper pads for my cards so I just cut the bag from white cardstock and added the designer paper to the front.  Twine is Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
Don’t forget to check out the December Specials!!
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!!

Emily Kluender :: Trendspotting

Hi Peachy friends, it’s Emily here from Creations of an Army Wife. Today I am sharing a trendspotting project with you all today.


I’ve notice that neon colors are a big trend for the Christmas season this year. I can not say I would personally decorate with these bright colors but I thought they would look great on a cute Peachy snowman.
I stamped and paper pieced the adorable PK-1413 Smile Snowman using Recollection’s neon card stock. I used a Copic marker to color in the arms and outline the snowman. I chalked his cheeks with Inkadinkado chalk ink.
For the buttons, I stamped and paper pieced them from PKSC-23 November 2013. The Smile Snowman set does come with two pom-pom stamps you could use but I wanted to change things up a bit by using the buttons.
I used Versamark ink and Recollection’s snow embossing powder to stamp on one of my favorite Peachy backgrounds, PK-1349 Woodland Birch, onto the neon blue card stock. I then cut it out with a My Creative Time: Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
The sentiment was stamped on the speech bubble from PKSC-24 December 2013.  I then added the little stars using Hero Arts: neon yellow ink. They are also from the December 2013 set.
I cut the Colorbok: white glitter paper with a Lawn Fawn: Hillside Border die to create the snowy hills.
I then added a fun neon snowflake embellishment. The snowflakes are die cuts from My Creative Time. I added a larger button also from the November 2013 stamp set to the center to match the snowman.
Well I hope I have given you some inspiration on using these non-traditional colors in your holiday projects using Peachy Keen Stamps.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!! Have a wonderful crafty day!!
-Big Peachy Hugs-
