Janice Wilson :: Happy Summer Background Tutorial

Hello friends!  Janice here to share a card I made using a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.  The tutorial is called Copic Ink Background.  I have a few photos of my own, however their tutorial has photos and video if you would like to see it in greater detail.

These are the supplies I used along with glossy cardstock.  First drop various drops of ink onto the glossy cardstock.  Then dip various size circles in the hand sanitizer, then onto the cardstock.  When dry you will have a nice piece of patterned paper for your design.    I used mine for an ocean/aquarium background.

Here is my finished card.

I used sandpaper for the ocean floor along with various punches to create the scene.  I love that adorable octopus which is from PKSC-18 June 2013 kit.  The sentiment is from that set as well!  Thanks so much for having a look and have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles,

Amber Kroening :: Twinkle, Twinkle

Hey guys!  Amber here, from Bella Rose Cards.  One of my favorite was to use my Peachy Keen stamps and still keep my designs CAS is by stamping my backgrounds.  There are stamps in almost every Peachy Keen set that you can use to create your own background paper.  You can even use sentiments!  For this card I used the Star Galaxy stamp.  I used only the largest star which you can do by masking off the other parts of the stamp, or if you're really brave, you can carefully cut the stamp around the star.  After my paper was filled with stars, I colored them in with blue, green and yellow Copics.  The sentiment I used is from the Twinkle Twinkle Sentiments set.  I stamped it on white cardstock and matted it with four layers of coordinating cardstock.  I highlighted the sentiment with a yellow Copic. To finish it off I cut 3 lengths of twine and tied a bow at the top of my card.  Now go look through your Peachy Keen stash and see which stamps you can use to create a background!  =)

Now would also be a GREAT time to drop by the Peachy Keen Stamps Website, because there's a SUPER sale going on right now!!  See the photo below for ALL THE DETAILS!!!

Gigi McKellips :: I Ruff You!!

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I have a card to share. I am just LOVING these new stamps that were just released this month. Those pups are THE CUTEST dog's ever!

I paper pieced the dogs using the new Peachy Keen August 2013 Stamp Of The Month set. I did some inking on them and stamped the faces using the Peachy Keen Happy Go Luck Dog faces. I cut the girls head off...EEK...LOL! and positioned it so it looked like she was resting her head on the boy's head. I used Copic markers to color in some grass and a white gel pen for the highlights on the dogs. To finish, I stamped the sentiment, added a bow, and added some gems. 
I hope you all liked my card and thanks for stopping in today! 
Have a great day!

Tracy Scales :: Sweet Christmas!

Hi All,Tracy here from Welcome to my crafty world. I cannot believe that it is week 3 of my guest design term here, time flies !
I couldn't let my time go without sharing with you one of the gorgeous christmas stamps from Peachy Keen

I love Christmas, infact I would leave my decorations up and celebrate all year round if I could, and I LOVE Peachy Keens christmas images.
Here is this weeks make from me....

                                                             I have used the lovely  
                                                            PK-1329 Sweet Home

I stamped & colored this with my Copics and then cut out and created a spinner card with this lovely image, one thing I love about this is it's such a lovely big and detailed stamp that you Don't need to add anything else to the card. So all i have done is add some Christmas papers, some twine and a bell. 
The image when spun round has a Merry Christmas Sentiment on the back of the house. 

I hope you like this weeks make from me, and don't forget to check back next week, when sadly it will be my last post.

Saundra Rega :: Hot Diggity Dog!

Hi, Peachy Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Saundra here from Luv Scrapping Together to share some Peachy inspiration with you. I have been playing with the August Stamp Release and have a fun card to share.

Isn't this puppy the cutest!! I colored the puppy, hat, dog house, and dog dish with my Copic markers. These images are all from PKSC-20 August 2013.

Since it is the puppy's party, I thought he should have a treat so I stamped the hot dog from PK-114 Hot Diggity Dog stamp set and added it to his dish. Of course, I used the sentiment from this set, also! I seemed to be the perfect fit!

This was great fun to put together!

For more details, visit my blog: Luv Scrapping Together

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Kim Score :: Dog House Treat Box

Hello all, this is Kim Score from  Today I want to show you how to make this cute little dog house treat box.  This is the perfect gift for the dog lover in your life.  You can either fill the box with doggie treats for their pet or people treats for them!

For this project, I'm using the PKSC-20 August 2013 Stamp of the Month set.  I love the puppy and house in this set!  It's perfect for paper piecing for a great three dimensional look.  Following are the step by step instructions to make the treat box.

Step 1
Cut a 10-1/2" x 7-1/4" piece of chocolate chip card stock or wood grain designer paper (I used Woodgrain Love by My Little Shoe Box).  On the long side, score at 2-1/2", 5", 7-1/2" and 10".  On the short side, score at 2" and 5-1/4".  Sharpen the score lines.

Step 2
If using a patterned paper, turn the paper over to mark on the back side.  On the first and third squares along the top, mark at the center top of each square (1-1/4" is the center of the square).  Draw a line from the center point to the lower corner of the square.  Now measure out 1/2" from the lines just drawn and draw a line as shown.

Step 3
Clip on the score lines and cut away the sections as shown. Use a ruler and bone folder to score on the pencil lines. Sharpen score lines.

Step 4
Flip over and put a strong adhesive on the tabs as shown. Do not add adhesive to the inside tabs on the pointed sections. These tabs will be used for the roof top to open and close.

Step 5
Assemble box.  Tape bottom flaps of box closed.

Step 6
Cut a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of early espresso or textured card stock.  Score at 2-3/4" and sharpen crease.  Attach to the two tabs with adhesive.  The other side of the roof will be a "flap" to get the treats from the box.  Add a repositionable adhesive/velcro/magnets to these tabs so it can be opened easily.

Step 7
Cut a piece of black/espresso card stock 1-3/4" x 2-3/4".  Corner round the top edges and glue piece onto the front of dog house. Stamp the puppy twice onto a designer paper or card stock.  Stamp the face onto one of the bodies.  Cut that head out and mount onto the other dog image with dimensionals. Attach dog to front of dog house with dimensionals.

Melissa Haas :: Sandwich Fun Card

Hello Everyone! Melissa here with a fun slider card.  Peachy Keen Stamps has this adorable set called PK-127 Sandwich Fun!  The faces and sentiments are perfect for this "bag of peachy chips".  I used a scoring board to give a "ruffle" to my potato chips but I left the center smooth for the chip with the face on it.  This way the face is not distorted when I stamp on the chip.

Here is what is inside the card:

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please hop on over to my blog to see more information about this card.

Jeanne Streiff :: Back To School... I Miss You!

Hi everyone! Jeanne here today with a fun Back to School card. 

I made my "chalkboard" by painting green acrylic paint onto some cardstock. I let that dry and then matted it with brown cardstock to make a frame. I paper pieced my dog (PK-1334 Howling Puppy) by stamping the outline image onto patterned paper (The Paper Loft) and then cutting out (I added a little extra shading with a grey marker and colored the kerchief blue). Once I had my dog ready I stamped my sentiments and bone with white ink. The dog was attached with foam dots for a little dimension. Add a ribbon and you're done!

Have a great day!

Tracy Scales :: Happy Haunting

Hi all it's Tracy from Welcome to my crafty world for my second guest design team post.

Now I don't know about you but I cannot believe how quickly this year is going !
I love Halloween and couldn't resist using some of the brilliant Halloween stamps from Peachy Keen on this project...

I had so much fun making this little haunted house, I used a Cutting file and the basic house on my Silhouette Cameo.
I used the following stamp set...

I think this is probably my favorite Halloween stamp. I have used two of the ghosts from the set, and one of the sentiments. 

I hope you like this weeks make from me, don't forget to check back next week for my next Guest Design Team make.

WELCOME August Guest Designer :: Tracy Scales


We are thrilled come to you today to introduce our Guest Designer for August!
Please join us in welcoming Tracy Scales to our Peachy Keen Family of Designers!
Tracy will be sharing projects with you today and each Tuesday through the rest of this month and we are so happy to have her here.
Read a little about Tracy in her own words below, then scroll down to see the wonderful project she has prepared to share.

I'm Tracy and a self confessed craftaholic.  I have always been creative and had an obsession with paper and creating things.  I love my stamps and anything inky.  I mainly make cards, but I am also in to altered items and scrapbooking.  I have a wonderful hubby who supports my addiction and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Peachy Keen Stamps as I adore their stamps!

Hi Everyone, It is Tracy from Welcome to my crafty world. I cannot explain how excited I am to be this months guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps !
I have always been a huge fan of Peachy Keen Stamps, so to be able to showcase my creations with you all is really exciting.

My first card I  want to share with you all is made using two of Peachy Keens fab stamp sets.
I really had SO much fun making this card.....

For this card I used the following stamps....

I got my cameo out for this card and decided I wanted to do a scene card. The grass & fence are all cut out with my cameo. 
I colored the super cute Natalee with my copics. I thought the sunshine and sentiment went perfectly with Natalee. I also added the little bows to her hair (I know as a little girl I always had bows in my hair...they tended not to stay in my hair for very long though). 
I cut the sun in two layers and then using foam tape mounted the top layer to the bottom to give some dimension, I then just built up my scene. The papers are from the Silhouette Store, it was then mounted onto a scalloped edge card. 
I really hope you liked my first project, and I hope you will come back to check out the rest of my creations throughout the month. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Tanya Adams :: Back To School Notebook

Hi there Peachy friends, how are you?  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner with a fun back-to-school project to share with you.  My granddaughter will be starting the 3rd grade in a few days and I wanted to make something special for her first day back at school.  I decided to go with a notebook to help her keep with all those important things 3rd graders have to keep up with.....

To put this little cutie together, I covered some chipboard (4.5 X 5.5) with some school patterned paper.  I cut paper for the inside from plain computer printer paper and bound everything together with some red wire and my Cinch.

I added some pretty twine and those cute little red glasses that I found in the jewelery making section of my local craft store.  Next, I pulled out my PK stamps and got inky!

I love the notebook paper stamp from the August 2012 PK Stamp Club - PKSC-08.  I stamped it onto white cardstock to use as my background mat.  I wanted to personalize Emma's notebook so I pulled out my Lucy's ABC's & 123's set - PK-155 and stamped the letters for Emma's name onto my background mat. I love these letters because they can be colored in to match anything!

Next, I hand cut a bit of grass from some green polka dot paper.  Then I colored up this darling little schoolhouse (from the PKSC-08 set) with my Copic markers, cut it out and glued everything together.

Okay, now for the inside.....

I made a little pocket and tag for the inside cover. The front of the pocket is peachied up with another cute image from the PKSC-08 set.  I just love that apple with the silly face and glasses!  And, because my granddaughter is so smart (spoken like a true Nonna), I added the A+ stamp in the bottom right hand corner of the pocket!

Using a few more images from this stamp set, I randomly stamped a few pages inside the notebook for Emma to doodle her "free time" of course!

And, here's a photo with the tag removed from the pocket....

Isn't that little pencil just too cute?

Well, I think that about wraps up my back-to-school project. Thank you so much for stopping by today - I always enjoy sharing my PK projects with you!  And, speaking of sharing, before I let you go I want to share this awesome PK Sale with you.....

Pretty awesome, huh?  You don't want to miss this one!
I hope you have a Peachy day!
