Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 4: Day 3

Hi Peachy Friends! It's Joy from Joy's Life.com. Today is Day 3 of my Guest Designer Week with Peachy Keen! I am having a GREAT TIME spending a week working with the Peachy Keen stamps. Today I've created some cupcake wrappers using the Cricut Lite Cupcake Wrappers cartridge. (You can find that cartridge at Walmart.) Wait until you see how cute these toppers turned out!! Drum roll please...da da da da da da da da .... BANG!

YUMMY AND PRETTY!

Are you in LOVE with these? I need to sing like Ariel the Mermaid for a moment. Excuse me. "Ahhh ahhh ahhhh...ahHH aHHH AHHH". I'm done now. In that photo I'm using the Peachy Keen PK-681 Retro Paper Doll Faces again. I LOVE THEM! I just used them in Monday's post. You can see that post HERE.

I recently made some Tim Holtz paper rosettes using his Sizzix die. I put them to great use as beautiful cupcake topper adornments! I also used a 2" scalloped punch to make those polka dotted circles. They serve a purpose besides being cute; they hide the stick. I'm using drink stirrers as the sticks.

Here's a link to the Tim Holtz Sizzix Paper Rosette Video I Made

Here's a side photo of the cupcake toppers.
Pop dots and Zip Dry and Tape OH MY!

On the one side you have Peachy Keen faces, on the other side are Joy's Life All Around Sentiments stamps. I used Copic markers to color in the Peachy Keen faces. You can read about the ones I used in this previous Peachy Keen post. I colored in the center flower on the Happy B'day stamp using Stickles.

I used my Xyron to help me put together the cupcake wrappers. It is such a time saver!! Ok, time to talk about the Cricut Lite Cupcake cartridge. People have a love/hate relationship with that cart. It can be very difficult to figure out what size to cut the wrappers and to get them to cut out without tearing. Here's what I suggest: use the Real Dial size for these wrappers. I cut these out at 3 1/2". ALSO...slow it down!! Slow your machine to Speed 3. You might also want to use Multi Cut 2. Sometimes those things don't get completely cut out. Doing a multi-cut should help, especially when using cardstock instead of a thinner paper. I used Stampin' Up paper for most of these wrappers.

This is my favorite Peachy Keen face stamp so far! She's fun to color!

Have a great day everyone! Time to eat my creation. LOL!

And now...time for a fun Give Away!!


Peachy Keen has given me a set of their PK-754 Critter Faces Set A to give away during my week of Guest Designing. YAY! All you have to do to be entered for a chance to win these cute stamps is to leave a comment here and also on my post on JoysLife.com. I'll choose a winner Saturday, Feb 5 and post the winner on Friday's post. ;)

Have a Peachy Day!! Tomorrow brings a new Peachy creation.
