Make It Crafty DT Inspiration

Hello friends!  I have a couple of cards I would like to share with you using some fun digital stamps from Make It Crafty.  This first card uses the adorable Penelope With Teddy stamp.  Isn't she a cutie?  I paired her with the Hearth and Home digi stamp.  I love to sit by a warm fire and she looks all cozy in her pajamas.  Wish I was sitting in front of a fire right now.  It is a bit cold here.  Here is my card.  I colored her up quite some time ago so I don't remember the colors I used.

My second card was made with Angelicbelle Digi Stamp.  I made this card for the Make it Colourful Challenge #3.  Skin and muscle definition.  My detail is very subtle on this card but I think it turned out okay.  This month flew by so quickly.  A new challenge will begin tomorrow, so I hope you might give it a try.  Here is my card.

Doesn't she look festive for the holidays?  

Thanks for stopping by!

For my project I found a wooden snowman at Michael's that I painted with acrylic paints and stamped with PKS-01.  It was the perfect size.  I added liquid applique and glitter to  the hat.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello friends!  I hope you have been enjoying the Fall weather.  I thought I would share a little gift bag and card celebrating Fall and being thankful for our blessing as Thanksgiving approaches.  I have much to be thankful for and look forward to spending time with loved ones.

The gift bag is a simple lunch bag stamped with the colors of the season.  I used PKSC-09 September 2012 for the leaves and acorn and PKSC-10 October 2012 for the Turkey and sentiment.  The stamps that I used are from a monthly subscription that you can sign up for.  You can read all about the program here.   It is a fantastic bargain and so much fun to receive some peachy goodness each month in the mail.

I used pigment inks to stamp the leaves.  I find that pigment inks are best used on solid stamps.  Have you ever noticed if you use regular ink on a solid stamp it often appears spotty?  The stamped image can also be affected by the type of paper you use.  These are things you will learn by exploring different inks and stamps along with a variety of papers.  Happy stamping!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge 13-47

Hello peachies!  Time for a new sketch challenge 12-47.   Here is the sketch.

Here is my card!


I used the adorable turkey and sentiment from PKSC-10 October 2012.  He has been paper pieced and colored with copics.

Are you a member of the stamp club?  It is a great bargain and you can read all about it here.

You can purchase stamp kits from the past by going HERE.  

I hope you will see what the other designers have made with the sketch.  Check it out in the forum, under challenges.  I hope you will play along as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving on Thursday!

Peachy Keen Sneak Peeks Day 2

Hello Peachy fans!  It is day 2 of the November sneak peeks.  I have made several cards for this release.  These stamps are so fun and have endless possibilities!  I will share a few with you today and post some more later.  If you missed yesterday's peeks you may view them here.  Visit the blog all week and we will have the final reveal on November 5th.

I made this card while visiting Peachy Keen and Viv, Kathy and Gigi!  It was a lot of fun!  Colored with copics and paper pieced.

Another one made in Green Bay.  Their clothes were made with background stamps and cut out.  The colors look better in real life.

Here is a third card, also made in Green Bay.  I love making scenes so I made this into a sewing room complete with hanging photos on the wall.  These snow cuties are dressed in clothes  sewn just for them. .

I made this card when I returned to Massachusetts, using the adorable mini stamps from the stamp club kit and an awesome background stamp!

I hope you have enjoyed these peeks and that you will come back for the complete reveal on November 5th.

Hugs and smiles,
