Peachy Keen Guest Designer: Week 11, Day 3

Good morning Peachy friends!  Stephanie here from Stephanie's Paper Creations.  I'm back for another day of Peachy Keen goodness!

Some people that left me some sweet comments said that they don't own any Peachy Keen Stamps yet and some asked which set they should get to start out with.  The two sets I used on today's project are very good, versatile sets that I personally think are great for starting out.  The Everyday Character Face Assortment is a great set with basic faces you can use for almost anything.  The Critter Faces Set is an excellent set especially if you do a lot of animal shapes, like from the Create-a-Critter Cricut Cartridge (my fave!)  I have found that there are also some faces in the Critter set that work well for any faces.... not just animals!  It is actually very versatile!

Okay, on to my card for today..........

 I just think this card is so happy and fun!  The Peachy Keen faces really bring so much life to the images!

For the cow, I used the Critter Faces stamp set, but I only used the eyes.  I have the medium set (which I'm also giving away!) and the eyes seemed just a little too close together for the size of the cow, so I just inked and stamped each eye separately to make them proportionate to the face.  It is really easy to do!

For the sun, I used a circle punch and then just cut some freehand pieces for the sun's rays.  For the face, I used the Everyday Character face assortment stamp set.

Materials used:
Ink - Black VersaFine, Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip
Paper - Papertrey Ink Soft Stone, Raspberry Fizz, New Leaf, White, True Black, other colors from scraps, clouds cut from Stampin' Up patterned paper
White & Blue gel pens
Raspberry Fizz ribbon (Papertrey Ink)


Don't forget to go over to MY BLOG and leave a comment to be entered to win this amazing set from Peachy Keen Stamps!

Thanks so much for joining me again today!!  Have a moo-velous day!!  :-)

I've seen this Create a Critter cow a lot but yours has got to be one of the cutest. I came within a hair's breadth of ordering the critter faces stamps last week, but couldn't decide what size I should get. Thanks for your tips.
