Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps - Day 5

Well, my crafty week as Guest Designer is almost over! I can't believe it went sooo fast! I have had such a good time showcasing some of my favorite Peachy Keen Stamps this week!
For today's project, I just had to use a face stamp!

For my card I am using the "Once Upon a Princess" Cricut cartridge for the sweet little girl. And the face stamp I am using is "Princess Faces".

My card is a two way pull card that was featured on the Splitcoaststampers forum. I love how this card turned out! It was really fun to make!

And isn't that the cutest little face ever!

Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps - Day 4

Hi my crafting friends! Wow, what a week I am having....reading all your sweet comments has really made my week!

My project for today is another card...I am using the Peachy Keen Stamp set "Happy Bird and Phrases"! This card just makes me sing SPRING!

The sweet little bird is colored using Copic markers. One of the really neat things about Copics is you can color almost anything with the markers. If you notice the red embellishments on each side of the bird, those were originally white and I colored them with a red Copic. I love this, as you can customize anything you have!

I also made a matching envelope to go with this card.

Don't forget about my giveaway this week, just leave a comment on this post and I will announce a winner on Friday night.

The prize will be this super "Create a Critter" face stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow on my last day of the Guest Designer this week!

Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps - Day 3

Hi my crafting friends! I hope you are enjoying this week of Peachy Keen Stamps! I know I am!

Today's project is a page layout using the Peachy Keen Stamp "Say it with Flowers".

Using the 3 flower stamp, I created a boarder by stamping the same image over and over and then used a Martha Stewart border punch to punch out the scallops to create this beautiful border for my page layout.

I love how you can incorporate stamps in to your page layouts, and this stamp set is just so darn cute!

Don't forget I am giving away a "Create a Critter" face stamp set this week, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will randomly select a winner on Friday.

Thank you for all the sweet comments this week, I have really enjoyed reading them!

Valentine's Day Card

Hi Crafters! Here is a quick Valentine's Day card I made for my son.

I am postponing the video series this month, to start up again in March. I have been traveling a lot this month and will continue to do so thru February.

For this card, I cut the card base using "Just Because Cards". The cute little bee is cut from "Paisley" and the heart is cut from "Doodlecharms".
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, and I will see you next week!

LOVE Banner

Hi Crafters! Happy Super Bowl Sunday to you all! I am not a football fan, but my husband I play along!

I decided this month to play along in the Cricut Circle Blog challenge....the challenge is to create a banner using 3 cuts from the Cricut! How easy is that! I love banners and needed one for Valentine's I jumped right in!

I had a lot of fun with this one! For the tag base, I am using a tag from the Sweethearts cartridge. I welded a corner flourish from the Sweetheart cartridge on to the tag base, and then cut the actual corner flourish from a lighter pink cardstock to layer ontop of the welded piece on the tag. I hope that makes sense, I guess you wouldn't have to do that step, but wanted to try it and it worked!

The scallop heart and the lighter pink heart layers, and the cupid were also cut using the Sweethearts cartridge. The letters were cut from Storybook cartridge. I added glitter to the letters and the heart and arrow on the cupid. The lock and key were also cut from the Sweethearts cartridge.And for my FAVORITE part of the banner! This beautiful paper rose! I made this rose using a flower cut from the Walk in My Garden cartridge and used the Tim Holtz grunge flower technique.
I cut the flower pieces out of parchment cardstock and then ink the edges with 3 different colors of ink.
These are very easy to make, and the whole time I was making them, I was singing the song from Marie Osmond "Paper Roses"!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope your team wins!!!!
