Jessica Esch :: Stamp On A Happy Face!

Good Morning Peachy Keen Stamp fans! 
It is Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap here to share my Face Day projects with you!
For my project today, I made a set of cards that I thought would be great to have on hand for those “Just Because” cards. 
I wanted to keep my cards on the simple side to really showcase the adorable PKS face and sentiment. I started my cards out using a Kraft Cardstock base and layering both white cardstock and pattern paper. For a little more detail, I did run the mats through my sewing machine for a nice even border.
Next I used my Silhouette and a Miss Kate Cuttable file~Cute Popsicles to cut out 4 different Popsicles in different colors. I hid the face that comes with the file so I could add my PKS face.
Once all the layers were cut and assembled, I stamped on my PK face using one of my favorite sets~ PK~1300 Sweet & Innocent Face Assortment.
I just love adding a cute PKS face to my projects! I highlighted the face a bit by adding chalk to their cheeks and some white gel pen freckles. I also colored in their eyes with my white gel pen as well.
Once all the faces were stamped, I added some matching Trendy Twine in Twisted Lime, Blue Berry, Strawberry Cupcake and Lemon Tart to each of the Popsicle sticks. Popped them up onto my card fronts and my cards were completed.
One thing I forgot to mention…before adding my Popsicles, I did stamp my sentiment. This one comes from the PK 1398~Circus Treats set.
 
So there is my Face Day project for today. I really hope you have enjoyed these cuties!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!

Jessica Esch :: SVG Comparison/Tutorial

Good Morning Peachy Keen Stamp fans!
 
It is Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap here to share a tutorial on the differences between the Peachy Keen Stamps SVG Files and the new Peachy Keen Stamps Pieceables.
 
 
I know there has been several questions floating around as to what is the differences between the two and how they can both be used. So I thought I would take this time and explain to the best of my knowledge both. 
 
 
Let’s start with the Peachy Keen Stamps SVG’s. If you are a SOTM Club Member (you can find all the details HERE on how to join) you get the entire SOTM stamps in SVG form as a bonus for being a member. Then you can purchase the additional release SVG’s at a GREAT rate!
 
 
So maybe you are wondering what an SVG is? 
The SVG’s allows you to cut the image (using a cutting machine) to form a slight border around it eliminating the need to fussy cut it out. It gives you an even border around your stamped image for a GREAT look! But you HAVE to have the stamp to use these. Reason being, if you only use the SVG, you will have none of the stamped image, just the cut. Again it is only a frame to place your stamp.
 
 
For example…I will be using the new Snow Hugs Snowman from the July New Release.
Here is what the SVG file looks like up on the Peachy Keen Stamps website. See the additional line around the adorable snowman and the matching pom poms? Those are what will cut out so you can then stamp on it.
When you bring it into your cutting program (I use the Silhouette Designers Studio) it will come up looking like the above image. You can separate the snowman from the pom poms, but you will NOT want to resize them. If you do that, when you go to stamp the image onto the cut it will not fit! 
 
Once your SVG is cut, it will look like this. I left all my pieces on my cutting mat, so it is easier for me to stamp. Some people remove their pieces before stamping, while others leave it on their mat. This is a personal preference, use whatever you feel more comfortable doing.
 
You will want to next ink up your matching stamp, like the above image.
 
And lining up the cut file with your stamp, place it onto the cut. This sometimes takes practice to line up the stamp with the cut. But once you get the hang of it, you will see it is really easy to do! 
 
And here is what it looks like after stamping…Don’t you just LOVE it!!!
A perfect border around that adorable image!
 
Next go ahead and stamp the remaining pieces.
 
I separated them on my mat so you could see them better. I inked one pom pom and them cleaned that part of the stamp to then stamp the next one. I didn’t want any of the ink transferring onto my mat.
 
And here are the finished pieces. All are stamped and ready to finish for a project. You can then do whatever with these, color them in or paper piece them. But don’t forget to add your PK face!!!
 
Below are 2 examples I did using this set. I paper pieced both using different paper pads to achieve two different looks. I did add the matching face stamp that comes with the set, as well as chalking up her cheeks on both, adding copic color to her arms and then popping her up onto both of my cards.
 
**************************
Now we are going to focus on the new Pieceables. 
“These are Kathy’s exclusive peachy designs put into SVG format by Melissa Deuss of KaDoodle Bug Designs. The adorable designs can be cut with an electronic cutting machine and pieced together for so many great projects! Simply cut, assemble, and add the perfect peachy face of your choice!” 
~this was taken from the Peachy Keen Stamps FB page~just an FYI of you have seen this wording before :)
 
Here is what the PKS Pieceable file looks like up on the Peachy Keen Stamps website
 
When you bring this into your cutting program, it will come up looking like the above image. Now this CAN be re-sized to fit your project because you do not use the matching stamp for this project. You will cut each piece using your cutting machine, in the color paper or pattern paper to fit your project theme and then you will stamp your PK face onto the snowman. So again for the new pieceables, you only need your PK face stamp, a cutting machine and cardstock to use these files.
 
I went ahead and separated each of the pieces in this file, placing the image of what the files is into the center~ this is just as a reference for this tutorial~ I will remove it before cutting out my pieces.
 
This is what the pieces will look like after they are cut. I did not cut out the bow~ you will see why once I have it all assembled…
 
Here is my snowman all assembled. I cut off the bow part so I could add some twine in its place. But this poor snowman is missing his adorable PK face!!!

 

Now we have a happy snowman! I added my PK face using the new PK~1410 Christmas in July Face Assortment. I also further embellished him by adding some chalk to his cheeks, white pen doodles and 2 Totally White Trendy Twine bows for his hat.
Now he is ready to be added to a project…. Maybe a Christmas tag, a Christmas LO or a card!
 
I hope you have enjoyed my picture tutorial and will consider playing with BOTH the SVG’s and the new Pieceables. If you have any additional questions, please comment on this post and I will try my best to answer them!!!!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!!!
