Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 3: Day 1

Good morning everyone! This is Erika from Cricutlove!
I have been very busy in my craftroom Peachifying, do you know why? Well it is because I am the guest designer this week for Peachy Keen stamps!! I am beyond thirlled that I will get to share some of my projects with all of you!

Well since Valentine's Day is right around the corner I decided for my first project I would make a cute little card to send to my sweet baby sister!

Isn't the penguin the cutest thing ever!!

Materials used for this sweet little card:
  • Holly Jolly Lite Cartridge {penguin was cut at 2.5 inches}
  • George Cartridge {hearts cut at .5 in} & {card base was cut out at 4.5 inches}
  • Sweet face was stamped with {PK Happy Lashes Face assortment}
  • Tria markers to color in the beak and feet
  • I used my jelly roll pen for all the stitching
  • Paper is from K&Company Valentine paper stack
Now for the sentiment I could not find a stamp that had what I wanted to say so I made my own!  I used microsoft word and wrote out the sentiment and printed it out. To add it to the paper on my card , {the polka dot paper} I held it up to the light and used doulbe sided tape to adhere it to the priner paper where I wanted the sentement and ran in back through the printer and Viola lol!!

Oh I almost forgot to mention PKS was so generous to give me a little something to give away during my guest spot!

All you have to do win is
  •  Leave a comment here
  •  Also please stop by my blog and leave me a comment 
Thank you for joining me today don't forget to stop by tomorrow for day 2 of my Peachy Keen week!

Your card is so cute! Thanks for sharing how to use the printer to write a sentiment. I had not thought of placing the paper on which the sentiment is to be written over the already typed sentiment to line it up. Great idea!
