Amber Kroening :: The Beauty of Nature

Hello!  Amber here, from Bella Rose Cards.  Today's card features stamps from two of this month's add-on sets; Clearly Autumn Pint Jar Contents, and Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents.  As you can see, these sets can be wonderful even without the jars!  I started by stamping the pine leaves on kraft cardstock, then I heat embossed them with green embossing powder.  I inked the edges and matted it on to a cream cardstock layer, and added a cream bow, then adhered it to an orange card base.  Next I stamped my sentiment in brown, then stamped a leaf with orange ink and colored it in with a yellow marker.  Again, I inked the edges, then matted in orange and adhered it to my card.  That's all for now!  Thanks for stopping by!

Candace Zentner :: October Guest Designer!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our October Guest Designer 
Candace Zentner!!!

I am a stay at home mommy of three little girls and I love to use crafting as a way to unwind at the end of the day. Before I had my girls, I was a Civil Engineering Technologist, but I just couldn't go back to work and miss out on all the special moments with them as they started to grow up. I have always been into scrapbooking, but it wasn't until I started creating layouts for my first daughter that I really got bit by the crafting bug. My favorite things to make are scrapbook layouts, cards and treat packages. I love being able to create fun projects, and I also love interacting with all the amazing ladies I have met throughout my crafty journey. Aside from crafting, I am passionate about photography, interior decorating,  traveling (mostly to DisneyWorld), shopping and anything fun I can do with my little princesses. 

Please join us in extending a very warm welcome to Candace and drop by each Tuesday this month to see what crafty goodness she'll be sharing with her Peachy Keen Stamps!!


Hey everyone! Candace here from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses! I am SO excited to be here! The very first set of stamps I purchased was from Peachy Keen over three years ago and I have been in love with PK ever since. It feels amazing to be a guest here this month! Somebody pinch me!! ;) 

I can't wait to show you my project today... 

I know that summer is over, but I think I am in denial...  It snowed here three days ago, but I refuse to put my flip flops away! :) 

These little popsicles are cute, but adding some PK faces takes the cuteness through the ROOF!!

I used two of my favorite face assortment sets on my popsicles: Sweet & Innocent and In the Garden. To make my cute little treats stand out, I popped them up using some foam stickers. 

Here is everything I used to make my card...
- Popsicle SVGs from Miss Kate Cuttables
- American Crafts washi tape
- Glossy Accents
- Pebbles Chalk
- Sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I cannot wait to show you my next project!!

Gigi McKellips :: BOO to You!!

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug here. I have a card and fun tutorial for you today! I used the skull stamp out of the NEW Clearly Autumn Quart Jar Contents stamp set to create the background on this card.
This is such a great way to make your own backgrounds and it is SO SIMPLE!

To create the background you will need the following items:
VersaMark Stamp Pad
White Chalk and Chalk Applicator
Skull Jar Filler stamp

I stamped the skulls using VersaMark Ink onto a black piece of cardstock slightly over lapping each stamped image. It is OK to overlap this stamp because it's such a busy stamp that you won't be able to see it. Let it dry for a minute and then chalk up your applicator with white chalk. Using a circular motion, cover the entire thing with white chalk. The more you rub it, the more of the white will stick to the black paper and make the skull images pop. 
AND there you have it! A really fun background that was super simple to create! Now your ready to make the card!

I made the card and ghost using SVG Cutting Files Wavy Card Base and Chibi Pumpkin and Ghost files. I used my sewing machine to sew around the card and down the middle going over the banner. The banner I created using the Lacy Banner Metal Dies and stamped and cut out a single skull from the jar contents stamp.  I stamped the face onto the ghost using Peachy Keen's In The Garden 1 1/8 inch face stamps and pop dotted the head. The BOO sentiment was stamped using Peachy Keen's PKSC-22 October 2013 stamp of the month set. 

I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial and card. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

Thanks to Peachy Keen for allowing me to Guest design for them for this past month...I have totally enjoyed myself. I chose to save this little guy for last...once I saw the paw stamps...I just had to have this puppy peeking out from behind a dog house...Love how it turned out. Then I had the best eyes peeking out from the dog house...perfect! I left the inside a bit so I can choose the celebration that this card would be perfect for. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)

Emily Kluender :: Gifts of Cocoa

Welcome to our final day of creations using Peachy Keen Stamps and Timeless Twine!
It's been a fun two weeks of sharing amazing projects from our team.
Hopefully we've inspired you to grab your Peachy Keen Stamps and Timeless Twine and create something wonderful of your own, and we'd love for you to share your creations with us on our Facebook page, or in playing along with our challenge.  We always love to see what you're creating and we count on YOU to keep US inspired!!
Stop by the Timeless Twine Blog today, because there's more inspiration to be found there, and we know you're going to love it!!

Here's the super cute creations that Emily has to share with you today!  ENJOY!!

Hi, Emily here! I have a couple of projects to share that I used Timeless Twine and Peachy Keen Stamps on. They go together like peas in a pod!! 

The two Timeless Twines I used were Christmas (Cherry and Olive) and Firecracker (Aqua Blue and Cherry Red). Such beautiful colors and so easy to work with!!

I know it isn't quite winter yet but I couldn't resist making these adorable hot cocoa gift holders. I love a great cup of cocoa on those snowy days. The cut files come from Treasure Box Designs and it is called Cocoa Pals.

On the snowman, I used Winter Faces. I colored in the nose, coals, and pipe with Copic Markers. I then chalked his cheeks with Inkadinkadoo Chalk Ink. I added twine to his hat and a sprig of holly which comes from PK-11 November 2012.

For the little boy, I used In the Garden Faces. I stamped and paper pieced his eyes. Then colored them in with a Copic Marker. I used the same color of chalk ink for his cheeks as well. I added a small pom to his hat.

The little cup of cocoa is stamped from the new PKSC-21 September 2013. I colored them in with Copic markers and added a snowflake sequin. 

I wrapped each of the handles with the coordinating twine from their hats. It was a little time consuming but so worth it! I think it created a beautiful accent to each one.

   Thank you for stopping by to look at my creations!! Happy creating and stamping!!

Nikki Foraker :: Fun With Timeless Twine

Welcome back!
Today we have two adorable creations from Nikki Foraker featuring Peachy Keen Stamps and Timeless Twine.   Be sure to drop by the Timeless Twine Blog to see what their talented team is sharing with you today!!

We have one more day of fun with Timeless Twine, so we'll see you right back here tomorrow!!

Hello! It's Nikki here with 2 cards using Timeless Twine and Peachy Keen Stamps. :) For this first card, I used the new Create a Friend Cricut cartridge to make the evil clown and balloons. I did some masking to put his smile on the white die cut mouth piece. I used The Moodies Face Assortment
I used Kraft Brown Bakers Twine for the balloon strings and bow. To finish this little guy off, I added some glossy accents to his nose to make it shiny. :) And here's my other card...
For this card, I used the jar from the April 2013 set. I white heat embossed it on vellum. I also stamped it on my patterned paper so I could cut out my shape for my shaker window. I just cut a little outside of the lines, super quick and easy. :)
I filled my jar with sequins. Oh how I ♥ sequins. Swoon. ;) I white heat embossed the greeting from the With A Cherry On Top set. And to finish it off, a bow with more of that lovely Kraft Brown Bakers Twine from Timeless Twine. If you look closely, you can see that I knotted the ends of the twine. Picked that up from the fabulous Julie Ebersole. :) 

I hope your day is just peachy! 

♥ Nikki ♥

Lorie Souther :: Ready, Set, Glow!!

Good morning!
Well, I've been sharing posts from our talented designers at Peachy Keen Stamps for almost two weeks and it's FINALLY my turn to share a project with you!  I hope you've enjoyed all of the amazing things that have been shared here, and I also hope that you've been visiting The Timeless Twine Blog each day as well to see the  wonderful works of art that their team has to share.

For my card, I decided to use a stamp set that's a favorite of mine.  It's actually one that I drew?  Ha!  Can you believe that?  I can't!  This is one from the Country Bumpkin line.  Jack-O-Light is a lot of fun to color.  Now in the case of the card today, you might notice there's a lack of color, where Mr. Jack is concerned  I have to admit that I'm kinda a little more than obsessed with these pretty white pumpkins that I see this time of year, and I find myself looking for them nearly everywhere I go.  I love the pale almost ghostly skin on them, but when you actually carve one, the flesh is just as orange and pumpkin colored as can be.  Put a light in them, and the orange glow is SO PRETTY!

I colored this image with Copic markers, and added some Flower Soft Ultra Fine Sprinkles in Earth and Toffee colors to ground Mr. Jack.  To make great use of the beautiful Kraft and Black Timeless Twine, I decided to crochet around the edges of the card stock.  I love the way it turned out.  It made the perfect little frame for Mr. Jack.  After all the crocheting was finished, I wrapped some more twine around the top of the card and finished it off with a handmade bow of twine.  

I'm so glad you could stop by today and I hope you'll be joining us here again through Sunday when we'll have more stampy and twiney goodness to share with you!  Have a wonderful day, and HAPPY STAMPIN!!

Amber Kroening :: Welcome Home Sweet Home

Welcome BAAAACK!

We're so happy you could join us again today for another day of fun with Timeless Twine and Peachy Keen Stamps!  If these creations make you happy, happy, happy, then we've done our job!   Without further ado, we bring you THIS beautiful and creatively mastered card from Amber Kroening!

Hey there!  Amber here, from Bella Rose Cards.  Are you loving the Timeless Twine projects!!??  I am!  I love making little nature scenes, so I decided to make some grass from my Timeless Twine.  If you look at the second picture, you can see how I did this.  I started by putting a couple strips of adhesive at the bottom of my card front.  Then I just went back and forth, laying down the twine.  Once I got to the end, I tucked the bottom of the grass under and secured it to the back of the card front.  Then I mowed my lawn (lol) by trimming the top with scissors. Once that was done, using the Home Tweet Home stamp set,  I stamped and colored  my sentiment and birds.  I cut the tree with my cameo, stamped & colored it, and adhered it to the card.  That is all from me today, thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

Now, for even MORE of what makes you happy, stop by the Timeless Twine Blog where their designers are waiting to bring some more HAPPY to your day!  ENJOY!!
