Guest Designer - Houses Built of Cards - Day 4

Good morning! So hard to believe that the week as guest designer is almost over! Been having so much fun with my Peachy Keen stamps! Thanks to everyone for the sweet comments here and on my blog, Houses Built of Cards - I have enjoyed reading each and every one of them!

For today's post, I played with my newest set of face stamps, In Stitches Face Assortment. (Hint: I also have a bonus project at the bottom of my blog using this same set!) I think these are so fun and different from any of the other faces - they have such a homespun look, that I just HAD to use lots of kraft paper!
I used a cut off of my cricut cartridge, Give a Hoot. I hid some of the layers on my Gypsy, and inked the edges of each piece with Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap.


I also pop-dotted several of the layers, as this picture shows a little better. The background is also pop-dotted, as well as run through my Cuttlebug. 


I used my white gel pen to do lots of faux stitching, and added a sentiment from My Creative Time stamps.


Here is the set that I used for today:


And, just a reminder, Peachy Keen has allowed me to select a prize to give away, and what could be better than your own spending money?!?!? So...leave a comment here, and on my blog, Houses Built of Cards, for two chances to win a $25 gift certificate!!!


Thanks for stopping by! I will see you back here tomorrow - one last time!
