Glorajean Beardall :: Warm Witchy Wishes

Hello Peachy Keen fans, this is Glora from Glora's Crafts and today I have a Halloween card to share with you.

For this card I used the new Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge for all of the cuts. I hid the face and stamped it with the Simple Sallies Face Assortment. The cute sentiment comes from the Lisa Jean Halloween stamp set by Peachy Keen Stamps. I added some inking, gel pen accenting, glossy accents and gold Stickles. All the patterned paper is BoBunny Double Dot. The pretty hemp twine is from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I hope you have a TERRIFIC day. Hugs- Glora

Cristina Garcia :: Birthday Treat Bags

Hi Peachies,

It's Cristina from Crafting with Cristina.

Fall is upon us!

For many of us that means changing leaves, cooler weather and pumpkin patches. For me, it means my daughter is another year older.

This year she has decided that she wants to have a "Strawberry Shortcake" Birthday party and therefore I have been tasked to start the massive decorating process.

Then it hit me, THEMED ITEMS ARE EXPENSIVE. And with more than 3/4 of her preschool class attending. I needed to come up with some way to make affordable treat bags that would save me money and not be too time consuming, but still be very cute.

Enter my Peachy Keen Stamps and old fashioned ingenuity.

Believe it or not, I used a few simple supplies to put these little treat bags together

Here is the quick step by Step

1. Take a Lunch Bag and Fold it in half
2. Using the Bottom Flap as a Guide Trim The bag to make it smaller.
3. Stamp the front of the Bag using PK-239 Faceless Fruit and Crumb Cake ink.
4. Fill your Bag with your Candies & Goodies
5.  Fold over the top of the paper bag, must like you would a lunch bag, NEATLY using your bone folder to crease it over as you go. This makes all the difference
5. Punch 2 holes equidistant from the sides in teh bag in the top flap of the bag
6. Thread some twine through the holes
7. Using Various Punches, assemble your Character Tag then punch a hole using a hole punch
8. Thread your twine through the Character tag and tie it off in a Bow
9. Stamp Your Thank You Sentiment from PK-562 Gnomegrown on a 1 inch strip some coordinating Pattern Paper and cut one side to a banner edge
10. Adhere to the front of your treat bag using Foam tape

There are plenty more specific details on my blog, but I hope this is just an great money saving inspiration on how to use your Peachy Keen Stamps.

I could also see something like this is a Halloween Theme using PK-130 Spider and WebJust Stamp the Spider Web all over your bag, creating the tag using the spider, with
 maybe some Halloween themed ribbon/twine and papers.

 Just another idea :)

Heather Hoffman :: Happy Fall

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! In case you didn't know, my family and I just moved a little over a month ago from Washington State to Wyoming - a significant change to say the least! We went from pretty much at sea level, to an elevation in our new home of about 7,200 feet! We just got back this past weekend from a week and a half visit back to Washington, and while fall is just beginning there, it is in full swing here in Wyoming, and actually almost finished sadly enough! Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I decided to share a fall card with you - and wish you all Happy Fall! Enjoy it before it's gone! Here is my super simple card:
I used the cute scarecrow (as well as the sentiment and beautiful frame) from the brand new September Kit of the Month:

My papers are from Simple Stories - some of my favorite, and now I'm starting to run out! I used one of the small frame squares from the 6x6 paper pad for the scarecrow (colored with Copics then cut out by hand) to sit on, and distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distress tool. I stamped the frame on kraft paper (also distressed), then added the sentiment, then allowed the top half of the frame to be covered up by the scarecrow and his panel. Used one final square of distressed pattern paper to mount it all on!
And...I just LOVE using Action Wobbles! It can make a rather simple card super fun and cute! So I put my little scarecrow on an Action Wobble! Here are a couple action shots:
You can find Action Wobbles HERE in the Peachy Keen Store! They last a long time too - totally worth the fun!
 And that's it! Super fun and simple card to celebrate the last little bit of my favorite season! Hope your week is off to a great start - and just gets better!

Leanne Garner :: Happy Fall

Hello peeps! I hope everyone has had a AWESOME week! This is Leanne and I'm here today to share with you a fall card I made using Peachy Keen's September Stamp Club! If you are interested in the Stamp Club but need more information be sure to click here for all the details!

I just LOVE fall and one of my favorite things is the leaves changing colors! They have not started changing here yet but it won't be long! I've found a new (well new to me) technique that I'm having so much fun doing! I am planning on doing a video soon and hopefully get you hooked on it too!! I used one of the leaves from Septembers Stamp Club and stamped it in several different fall ink colors. I also used the frame and sentiment from this set!

I hope you enjoyed my Fall card and I would love for you to stop by my Blog for the details and a list of supplies I used! Thanks for looking! Hope you have a GREAT weekend! Hugs, Leanne

Lauren Brewer :: Monster Halloween

If you are looking for the Peachy Keen Halloween/Fall Blog Hop, you'll find it right HERE

Hi Peachy Fans!  It's Lauren here from Lauren's Creative and I have a fun card to share with you today.  I wanted to show you that with some fun Peachy stamps - you can create a Halloween card without necessarily buying any Halloween themed paper. 
When I first started paper crafting, I was NOT very picky about what papers I chose.  I would buy an entire pad of patterned paper - even if I didn't absolutely love everything.  Well...luckily I HAVE gotten more picky, so I don't feel like I'm wasting money on supplies that I don't use.  Even if I don't always have the latest and greatest papers, I ALWAYS have a supply of solid colored cardstock. By using the spiderweb stamp from the Spider and Web set as a background stamp - you can create your own Halloween paper in any color that you choose.  I know some of you are masters at using your stamps to create beautiful background papers...I tend to have a bit of trouble, but this spiderweb stamp is super super easy.  I PROMISE!  I used the In Stiches Face Assortment set for my little monsters.  This is another versatile set - I love using it for scarecrows, dolls and any of the Peachy Keen Stamps that have stitching.  
I decided to heat emboss my sentiment so it would stand out against the pattern and the textured cardstock.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Jennie Garcia :: Simply Adorable

Hi Peachy Fans!! It's Jennie from Earthy Scrap.
I missed making layouts!! 
It's been a month since my last one and I was having withdrawals so I pulled out my peachies and started playing. 
I used Recollections Patterned Paper.

The notebook paper stamp, the face and the sentiment 
are from the August Stamp Of the Month Set. 

You have no idea of how many airplanes 
I made to practice for this layout!! 
I made a lot of them!! LOL
I hope they look like paper airplanes.
I also LOVE twine so of course I had to throw some in there.  

 I don't know if you have noticed 
that I LOVE my visual triangles. 

The title is from 3 Birds on Parade. 
This girl is one of my favorite stamps EVER!!
She is the Recess Jump Rope Girl!!
I hope you enjoyed my layout as much 
as I enjoyed making it!!
Take Care!!

Raven Baca :: Peachy Throwback

If you are looking for Angelica's Farewell Blog Hop, please click HERE.

Hey everyone! Raven here from Love4stamps and I am sooo excited to share this post with you all today! Don't you just love your Peachies? I don't know what I would do without them every month. And I LOVE my Peachy Picks! They coordinate so perfectly with the stamps that come out it is just a joy to create with them. This time around I really wanted to go back to that adorable little guy in the tractor and create with him.

We recently took my girlies to the bio park and they have tractors everywhere so he was our inspiration for this mini.
 I stamped and colored him first. Then I build the entire book around him well and my girls of course. ;)
 Using the stamps, paper and embellishments from the July PK-122 Funny Farm stamp set and Peachy Picks this came together really swiftly.
 Then using the Crop-a-dile I punched holes and loosely tied twine to hold it all together.
That's it. I just loved this July's kit so much I had to share it again. ;) Be sure to go on over and look at the new Stamp of the Month and the Peachy Picks they are both soooo adorable!!! I hope you all are having a beautiful week.
Tons of hugs,

Angelica's Fond Farewell Blog Hop

Good morning friends, and welcome to Angelica's Fond Farewell Blog Hop. Angelica Suarez has served as the Design Team/Marketing coordinator for Peachy Keen Stamps, for the past three years, and as many of you may have read from her post here a few days ago, she has made the difficult decision to leave her position  at Peachy Keen for a new and exciting job opportunity in the printing industry, which is near and dear to her heart. It's a bittersweet celebration for us, as we are sad to see her go, but we know that she will be a tremendous success in this new venture, and we couldn't be happier for her.

It is for this reason that those of us who have been blessed to work with Angelica have come together to bid her a fond farewell and share some special creations that we have made to let her know how much she means to us, how much we have enjoyed working with her, how much we are going to miss her, and that we wish her all the best!

We are so happy that you could join us for this special event,
 so grab a cup of coffee or your favorite treat, 
sit back, relax, and enjoy the hop!

The hop begins here on the Peach Keen Stamps Blog, and we've
got a talented line-up of designers, both past and present who have 
works of art to share with you in honor of Angelica!

There will be 4 designers along this blog hop that will each be awarding a

$20.00 Gift Certificate
to one lucky person who leaves a comment on their blog.  To be eligible to win, you must leave a comment on the designer's blog, as well as here on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog. 
Random winners will be chosen on Tuesday morning, and the winners will be announced here on Tuesday evening.  Here's the kicker.  We don't know WHICH designers will be awarding prizes, so you'll better your chances of winning if you comment on each blog along the way, and don't forget to comment here on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog to wish Angelica all the best as she begins this new adventure in her career!

Your next stop on this blog hop will take you to Kathy J.'s Blog.  Kathy just so happens to 
be the owner/illustrator of Peachy Keen Stamps, as well as Angelica's mom, and
a visit to her blog is ALWAYS a treat!

Please find a complete hop list below, in case you happen to
get lost along the way.

Amy Crockett :: Halloween Boo Plaque

Hi Peachy Friends!!  This is Amy from Scrapping Mommy to share a cute Halloween project with you.  Did you enjoy the latest release this week on the blog??  I know I am full of inspiring ideas for the upcoming fall/Halloween season, so much so that I created this super fun plaque with the newest Happy Haunting Ghosts and Spider and Web sets from Peachy Keen Stamps......

I found this wooden plaque (it measures approx 9 1/2 inches by 6 3/4 inches) at one of the big craft stores and painted it black, the covered it with some green diamond paper with Mod Podge.  I cut out the BOO! on my Cricut three different times.....twice with chipboard and then once with the black cardstock.  Before adhering them all together, I stamped and embossed it in clear with the spider web stamp from the Spider Web set.  I then adhered these layers together and set it aside to dry.

I then stamped these three darling ghosts and their faces onto white cardstock and then cut them out.  I placed them where I wanted them onto my BOO! and then adhered it all down to the plaque.  I added some matching green ribbon to the plaque with a staple gun and then tied some little black bows where the ribbon meets the plaque.

There is a great sale going on with the new release sets this can check out all the details on the Peachy Keen Stamps website.  Thanks for stopping by!!
