Jessica Esch :: Trendspotting :: Sequins

Hi everyone! It’s Jessica from Chick-n-ScrapI’m here to share a trendspotting project with you today.  My inspiration came from a picture I saw on Pinterest of these sequins. 
Mercy Tiara: Scraproom Sunday: Sequin Storage
Pinterest image found HERE
I LOVE using sequins on my projects and making shaker cards and tags. Since I have a growing supply of sequins, I am always looking for ways to store them. Pinterest to the rescue :) I actually started storing my sequins in these little glass jars but quickly realized that there is no good way in my small craft space to organize them. So I took to another storage solution….
This is only a few of my sequins…It is the perfect storage solution for me! The container trays can be stacked on top and placed on a shelf..out of the way but still accessible when I am searching for the colors I need for a project.
Now onto my project….I love how fun a card or tag can be when it is made into an interactive one, such as a shaker. I have 2 shaker tags to share, perfect for adding to a treat or gift bag.
Since Halloween is right around the corner and Christmas will be here before we know it, I made these 2 holiday tags. Let’s take a closer look at them.
 My first tag is this cute Halloween one. I used some green and orange sequins for this shaker and added them to the center of a tag I designed in the silhouette studio. This is a very simple tag design, a basic tag shape with a smaller tag shape cut out of the center. If you have never made a shaker card, there are several tutorials on Pinterest and/or YouTube. They are very easy to make!
Anyways once my shaker part was finished I embellished the front with the pumpkin from the Cottage Cutz set and stamped his face using the Pumpkin Face stamp set. Before completely assembling the tag, I did stamp the inside of the shaker part with my Halloween sentiment.
I finished my tag off with some more randomly places sequins, a May Arts ribbon, a fun sparkly button and some Totally Black Trendy Twine.
Peachy Keen Stamps Used:
Here is my Christmas shaker tag. It was done the same way as the Halloween one, except I added green and red sequins inside the shaker part. I found this cute Christmas tree in the Silhouette store and just added my sweet PKS face to him. Some chalk and white gel pen to his cheeks for a little more cuteness and he was placed onto my tag. 
I finished off the tag in the same way as well. Some May Arts ribbon, a green sparkly button and some Totally White Trendy Twine.
Peachy Keen Stamps Used:
So there is my trendspotting project. I know I love adding sequins to my projects.
These are a few other cards I have made using my PKS and sequins :)
Sequins make awesome embellishments
if you have yet to make a shaker card….you should really give it a try!
They are so fun and whomever receives one will surely LOVE it!!!
Hope you like these project and find some inspiration from it, thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT hump day!

Brigit Mann :: Box Card :: Face Day

Hi Peachy Friends!!  It’s Brigit here sharing a cute box card project using the Zombie Face Assortment Stamps.  I also used sentiments from the Ye Old Boneyard and Halloween Sentiments and Labels sets.


This was such a fun project to make, the box card is from SVGCuts, I just turned it into a whimsical Halloween card using these adorable Peachy Keen Faces.  I did alter the project a little by adding the moon and two tombstones, it still folds nicely but needs a little bigger envelope.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Liz Munoz :: Tutorial

Hi crafty friends!
It’s Liz from Liz’s Paper Loft and I’ve taken over the Peachy Keen Blog with a tutorial!  Now before I start I want you to know that I’m not an expert in Copics or stamping.  However I recently took a stamping class that helped me to look at my stamp collection differently!  To really be creative with them.
Also in the class I realized that I’ve become partial to one layer cards, or with just a bit popped up.  Rest assured, if you’ve been following for any length of time then you know that I LOVE a layered card, I will continue to make them! :)
Oh, and the inside sentiment is too funny!  Kathy’s humor cracks my up!
The Supplies!
I first used VersaMark and Glitter Black embossing powder to create the outline of Mr. Cranky.


Then heat set it.
Next I used black memento ink for the face.


 Once everything had cooled, I used copic markers to color him.
After I completed the coloring, I fussy cut Mr. Cranky.


Of course I needed him to come alive, so I added some glossy accents to his one eye…”He’s Alive”!  :)  Set aside to let him dry!


For the background I wanted the look of different pattern paper yet only use one layer.  So I taped off the area that I didn’t want to be stamped.


Then I inked the edges of the stamp.
Next I carefully removed the tape and stamped my card base.  This card is folded in half.


As you can see it’s a bit askew, but I’ll fix that shortly.


With another pattern stamp, I did the same thing with the tape.


Again I inked it up.


Removed the tape and stamped the image.


You can see that there a bit of a gap between the images.  Now I’m going to fix it being crooked and the gap


.I taped off so the part that was crooked and missing is now straight.  I’m using a wide painters tape and didn’t want to waste to much so I tore it in half lengthwise and used the straight edge to create the space to be embossed.  I’m all about using what you have.  :)


You can see where I added the silver tinsel embossing powder.


After I embossed a few purple bats, I added some pop dots to Mr. Cranky!


Isn’t he FUN!

You can go over to my blog to see the complete recipe :)
Like I said, I’m not an expert at either copic markers or stamping, however I hope this gives you the courage to be creative and try something you haven’t done before…whether this or something else!
Have a beautifully creative day!

Hello Peachy Friends!!  This is Amy from Scrapping Mommy here to share a fun face post with you using the new Zombie Face Assortment at Peachy Keen Stamps.

I put these fun Zombie faces on some pumpkins that I cut out with my Cricut and added some white pen accents to the faces.  The sentiment and frame are stamped from the Halloween Sentiments and Label set.  Here is a closer look at the faces…..

My card base is done with Kraft cardstock and then I added some patterend paper from the 6×6 Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor pack.  To finish off my card, I added some rounded corners at the bottom of the card and added some bakers twine.

I hope you have a great week!!



PKS September Release and Reveal Blog Hop

The excitement has been building for the past two days and now the time has FINALLY arrived!

WELCOME to the September Release and Reveal Blog Hop at Peachy Keen Stamps!

This All Occasion release brings wonderful images for projects centered around a birthday theme, as well as some great stamps that pair up perfectly with stamps that have been released previously this year. I can see the Birch Background stamp used with our camping themed release, a rustic Christmas project, Halloween, masculine “guy” cards and so, so much more! Smile Eagle goes amazingly well with the Birch Background, too, and can’t us just see that little fella used for some AWESOME patriotic projects? There’s the Haunted A2 Background, which comes just in time to make some quick and easy Halloween projects, OR pair it up with last month’s release or ANY of our Halloween themed stamps for more versatility. The PKSC-33 Stamp of the Month, Ballerina Bear, and the Sentiments for the September 2014 Release are fabulous “go to” sets for any age! And last but certainly not least are the Variety Face Assortments. It wouldn’t be a PKS release without faces, and these are some of the cutest and most versatile yet! Turn a simple project into something SUPER SPECTACULAR just by adding an adorable Peachy Keen Face! These are must haves, for sure!!

PKS September Release :: Sneak Peeks :: Day #2

Welcome back creative friends!

How about that first day of sneak peeks?  Pretty amazing, right?  Well we have more!!

Welcome to Day #2 of sneak peeks for the PKS September 2014 Release!

Tonight our talented team members are sharing some outstanding creations using four new stamp sets that were originally designed and created to go with various other stamp sets or themes that have been previously released.  Each month as Kathy begins her creative process, she takes sketches and ideas from a specific theme and runs with it.  There’s no way she could possibly include each and EVERY sketch or idea in every release,  but some of them are just too darned cute NOT to make the cut at some point.  This is where this release comes in.  This evening you will see creations using the Haunted A2 Background, Birch Frame Background, Ballet Bears, and Smile Eagle.

The peachy team has managed to blow us away once again with their amazing work!
