Peachy Keen Challenge : Cards with Leaves

Hello Everyone! Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge. This week create a card with leaves. For my sample, I created a shaped card with the acorn from Cricut's Create A Critter 2. The top of the acorn is stamped with PK-133 Oak Leaves and Acorn Background.

"Happy Fall" is from PKSC-22 October 2013.  This set has 42 stamps!  That is a whole lot of "peachy fun". The pattern paper is from one on my favorites, Farmhouse by Crate Paper.

Be sure to link your card up by November 6, 11:59 EST. 

Lovely Garden Bean

Happy Halloween! I just saw this Challenge from the Greeting Farm last night, Alter-Ego Challenge. The Challenge "alter" your Greeting Farm stamps to create something new. This sweet gal has the head from "Lovely Bean" and the body from "Garden Anya." I love the flowers in her hair and found shaped card to frame her from the Silhouette Online Store, Flower Card. I used a die from The Greeting Farm to cut the sentiment, Delicate Words Die.

The Challenge closes tonight. The winner will receive two 4x6 stamp sets and a GUEST Designer Spot. YAY!

Have a Great Day!

Snow Happy

Hello! I just finished playing with the some of the New Digi Stamps from Digi My World. I made a snowflake shaped card for this cutie and his little bird. I found the snowflake at SVG Cutting Files. It is one of the Freebie Files and you can get yours here.  I used my Silhouette Cameo and made a shadow of the snowflake and then welded the to layers together. The print and cut feature on my machine was used to print the snowman and cardinal.

The sentiment stamp is from Peachy Keen Stamps, PK-149 Happy Snowman with Label. The snowman and cardinal is ONE of the three snowmen in the set, Traditional Snowmen.  

Thanks for stopping today- Have a great day!

Christmas Mitten

Hello! Just sharing my post over at the SVG Cutting Files' Blog.   This card features the Stitch Up Mitten and will be at the store this Friday.  All the stitching has been planned out for you.  A simple running stitch adds some fun interest.  I used solid colored twine to stitch around the edges.

The card base is the Postage Stamp Card Base and I added a Christmas stamp from Jaded Blossom, Merry and Bright.

Thanks for visiting today!

Halloween Shaped Card

Good Morning! I have a Halloween Card to share with you today. This card fits a standard business size envelope. I welded a Halloween Title from SVG Cutting Files and this one is a freebie!. It comes with a "o" but I replaced that with this adorable witch image from Best Witches. She is colored with Copic markers.

This makes an adorable card and I am sending this to my sister so she can place this in her scrapbook with Halloween photos of her little ones. She is not a crafty person and loves when I send her goodies like this.

Have a great Friday :)

Best Witches Cauldrons

Ann's Birthday Blog Hop HERE

Hello! I have an easy Halloween Project to share. These are made with pre-made candy holders and Jaded Blossom Stamps. I found some plastic cauldrons at the Dollar Store, six for a buck!  (I made these for my co-workers for Halloween.) I cut a tag shape and masked off one of the sentiments included on the Halloween Mash Up word art stamp.  The candies are decorated with a broom found on Wizard Candies. Since I am only made a few of these, I added a little color with my Copic Markers to decorate the brooms and tags.

The cauldrons have some green tulle stuffed inside to give he appearance of something bubbling and brewing.

Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to see these on my friend's desks this Halloween. :)

Cool Beans!

This is my Second Post Today, Halloween Lollipop Covers Here

Good Morning- Today is my post over at Stamp Annie Thing.  I have been stamping with the I'm Nerdy Stamps and made this fun gift card holder. This smart pencil and "spiral" was colored with my Copic Markers.

I found this adorable spiral notebook card at SVG Cutting Files.  The word "enjoy" is this fabulous die from the Greeting Farm, Delicate Words Die. The tab slides out to reveal a gift card. To make the tabs for the gift card, I used the Gift Card Die from Jaded Blossom. Cool Beans if you ask me :)

I hope you enjoyed my project today-
