Kathy is a kind and generous person, and I am so grateful to know her. This is the largest blog hop in Peachy Keen history. Angelica recruited the Peachy Keen designers along with lots of amazing crafters to be apart of this birthday celebration. I have created this card especially for the Peachy Queen. I used Faceless Fruit, Everyday Character Faces, and Happy Birthday Kids to create this card. Please be sure to leave a comment on my blog, in addition to all of the participants of this blog hop. Random winners will be chosen for a chance to win 1 of 10 items that are Kathy's favorite craft supplies! For a complete list of the blog hop feel free to go the Peachy Keen's Blog!

Hey everyone! For this Peachy Keen Challenge, you are suppose to create a card or layout using dry or heat embossing. I decided to use my Cuttlebug to create a texture on the felt rug. Unfortunately, this picture does not really show the polka dot texture. Embossing felt is a really fun technique that can transform the fabric. I really love the Colby and Jack Cheese stamp set, so I just had to use it for this challenge! I thought the girl mouse needed a bow, so I used the Gingerbread Doll stamp set. I had so much fun with this challenge, and I hope you do too!

It is officially December and I have created some Peachy Keen ornaments to get into the holiday spirit. These ornaments are made with a very thick and durable high quality chipboard. On all of my ornaments, I used Glamour Dust Ice Crystal paint which adds so much sparkle. These would make a nice gift, or a fun project for all ages!

Market Street Stamps has released some brand new background stamps. They coordinate very nicely with all of the Market Street stamps. These large stamps are very high quality, and fit perfectly on a A2 card! I have made some cards using the new stamps both as backgrounds and textural elements in stamped images. I hope you enjoy!
I used Too Many Martinis and Simply Stitched Borders to create the ocean scene. The Octopus is from Sea Animals and Creatures, and the sentiment is from Ain't No Sunshine stamp set.
These are just few examples of what you can do with these stamps. Please be sure check out Market Street Stamps website for more information about the stamps in addition to more inspiration!

For Peachy Keen Challenge 41, you are suppose to create a inspirational project for someone who is going through a difficult time in their life. I think people develop a strength they never knew they had. I wanted to create a card to remind the recipient to be strong, in addition to putting a smile on their face. I used Peachy Keen Faceless Fruit, and Everyday Character Face Assortment stamp sets.

Christmas is right around the corner, and Santa is ready to come to everyone's home. You may be concerned that Santa burned himself coming down this chimney. He actually snuck through a back window to get into this home. I used Peachy Keen Santa Set to create this card.
I absolutely love the Lorie and Al Gingerbread Set I think it is so cute! I love the expressions on the gingerbread's faces.
Oh no it's snowing candy, and this little gingerbread girl is shocked! I used Bite Me Ginger and the Gingerbread House stamp sets.
The Our 2 Angels in Heaven stamp set is a special set that has been created in memory of Lisa's two wonderful children whose lives ended too soon. It is heartbreaking to hear her story, but her strength and courage is so inspirational. Kathy and Dave are both very generous people, and they are donating the profits from this stamp set to Make a Wish Foundation. This organization is wonderful, so please find it in your heart to contribute and honor the memory of Lisa's children.

I would like to share some cards that I have created using Market Street Stamps. I wanted to show how the bird from the Follow Your Heart stamp set can be used for every season. I also used the Bff's stamp set for the sentiment on the spring card, and the Ain't No Sunshine stamp set for the sentiment on the summer card.
Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Here is another card I have created using the newly released Market Street Stamps! I really love the adorable stamps that are on the BFF's stamp set. I decided to create a card using the bean and rice image with the coordinating sentiment. I could not resist putting a top hat on the bean! The hearts are from the Follow Your Heart stamp set.

For this Peachy Keen challenge you are suppose to create elements used in gift wrapping. I decided to create a set of stationary cards and envelopes. I also made a coordinating gift bag to hold the cards. I used Happy Bird and Phrases for the bird, Fall Fun Pumpkins for the sunflowers, Simple Sallies Face Assortment for the sunflower faces, and Sweetie Pie Peepers for the sentiment. The polka dot backgrounds are the Large Polka Dot Print and the Medium Polka Dot Print. I really love these polka dot stamps, because they are easy to line up to repeat the pattern. Stationary cards are fun to create, and I really think they would make a great gift!
Hey everyone! Angelica from Market Street Stamps has launched a brand new website and has designed more adorable stamps. I created this card using a newly released stamp set. This cute flan image and sentiment is from the BFF's stamp set. What is so unique about this set is there are versatile bilingual sentiments. Be sure to check out Market Street Stamps new website!

It's time for another Peachy Keen challenge! For this challenge, you are suppose to create an October themed project that is not a card. I decided I was going to create a recipe box filled with the ingredients. I found a paper mache book that looks like a witch's spell book. The top of the box is a view of the witch's room where she and her spider assistant cook up some potions. The ghost peeking in through the window is scared of what is being created. The inside of the box contains bottles that are filled with the soft drink mix and sugar. I used Lisa Jean Halloween, Halloween Minis, Spiders and Cats, Dress Me Ghost, and Spider on Freaked Ghost stamp sets. This box would make a cute gift set for a halloween party!

Hey everybody it's time for another Peachy Keen Challenge! I must say this challenge was so much fun, and I am very excited to see what everyone is going to do for it! For the Peachy Keen challenge you must follow the sketch along with using kraft paper. I just love the look and warmth that kraft paper provides for cards and layouts. For this challenge, I was really inspired by colorful leaves and the crisp fall air. I used the adorable Piggy Tubby Time stamp for the pigs playing in the leaves. This stamp has a lot of possibilities because you can use it as is, or simply remove the pigs from the tub and place them in a different settings. Thank you so much for viewing my project, and I hope everyone has enjoyed my take on the challenge!

For Peachy Keen Challenge #36 you must follow the sketch provided in addition to using the colors daffodil, melon, and cobalt. The sketch provided me with the perfect opportunity to create this rock concert. I flipped the sketch upside down, and created rows of seating for the fans attending the show. The duck dolls stamp set was perfect for the color part of this challenge. Thank you so much for looking at my card, I hope you like my rock chicks concert!
