Gigi McKellips :: Winter Fun!

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I am sharing this sweet winter card.Now that Christmas is over we can move on to some fun Winter themed cards!

 

 

Didn’t this turn out just adorable! I love how the snow gives this card so much texture.

I printed and cut the house from the Miss Kate Cuttables Winter Lodge. I used my Copic markers for the colored highlights, Stickles on the trees and a DecoArt Snow Writer for all the snow.  

  I also added a brad for the door handle and cut a plain house shape for the back to create the shaped card. 

I stamped and paper pieced that adorable penguin from the PKSC- 19 July 2013 SOTM set and added him on pop dots.

To finish, I added the sentiment banner and stamped the sentiment using the PK-1449 Holiday Sentiments



I hope you all liked my card and thanks for visiting!

Have a great day!

Emily Kluender :: Face Day!

Hi Peachy friends! It’s Emily from Creations of an Army Wife and today I’m sharing a Face Day project. I know Christmas has just passed but I wanted to share this nativity scene I created using Kathy’s fabulous face assortments. They really helped bring these paper pieces to life!
I found this little nativity barn last year on clearance after Christmas. I couldn’t wait to finally use it for this year!
For my scene I used cut files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons called Nativity 1 and Nativity 2.
For the baby Jesus, I used PKS-Just Baby Faces Assortment. I colored his eye lids in with a Copic marker and drew his little strand of hair on with a Micron Pen.
For the angel, I used the cute PKS-Cherub Face Assortment. I also colored her eyelids in with a Copic marker and then added Stickles on top. I accented her eyes with a white gel pen. Her halo was cut out using gold foil paper but just doesn’t show in the picture unfortunately. I also used Stickles on her wings to make them shine.
For the banner I used My Creative Time’s Vintage Stitched Label Die to cut out the sentiment.
For the cool camel, I used PKS-Here Kitty Kitty Face Assortment. I accented his eyes with a white gel pen and colored in his nose with a Copic marker. I extended the mouth using a Micron pen.
For Wiseman #1 (grey beard), I used PKS-Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. For Wiseman #2 (brown beard), I used PKS-Retro Face Assortment. For Wiseman #3 (brown beard), I used PKS-Winter Wonderland Face Assortment. I colored each one of their eyes in with different Copic markers. It was so nice to use these assortment again since I had the chance to use them in awhile.
For Joseph’s face, I used PKS- Laughy Taffy Face Assortment. For Mary’s face, I used PKS-Princess Face Assortment. I colored in Joseph’s mouth and eyes in with Copic markers. I use a white gel pen to fill in Mary’s eyes and colored her lips in with a Copic marker.
For the Shepard, I stamped on his face using PKS-Sweet and Innocent Face Assortment. I colored his eyes in with a Copic marker.
For the adorable little sheep, I used PKS-Teddy Bear Face Assortment. I colored in his eye lids and mouth with Copic markers. I accented his eyes with a white gel pen. I just love how I could use a bear face on my sheep. Love how these faces are so versatile!
For the cute little donkey, I stamped on his face using PKS-Medium Critter Faces. I accented his eyes with a white gel pen. These animals are just too cute and really bring a great element to the scene.
This project was so much fun to create and I don’t have the fear of little ones breaking it. Always nice to use these fabulous assortments in a fun new way!

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.
 

 

SUPPLIES
Peachy Keen- PK-1443 Faceless Penguins
Chalk Ink in light blue 
Stamping blender brush
Scrap paper
Scissors
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 :)
