Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 16

For this challenge we were supposed to use our Peachy Keen face stamps. The face for this set comes from PK -573 Basic Paper Doll Face for 3-4 inch dolls. It is very versatile and extremely reasonably priced at $8.95. I LOVE this set. Below is my pixie birthday card.

My little girl insisted in joining the contest too. The card below is her Pixie doll.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 15

For this Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge we were supposed to use the following sketch.

This is my card. I used some of my scrap paper, my ribbon stash, my Cricut Christmas Cheer Cartridge (for the wreath) and some red rhinestones.

Halloween & Fall Birthday Cards

This card was for my sister-in-law's birthday. She loves candy corn and her birthday is in October. I thought it made a fun combination.

Here is a different color scheme for the same basic card.

This is a simple Halloween card that I made using some of my patterned paper scraps.

This was my attempt at a Mickey Pumpkin card. I think it still needs some tweeking, but that will probably have to wait until next year.

Peachy Keen HALLOWEEN Challenge

• create a card
• use a haunted house somehow in your card
• you will need a bat
• and a ghost
• include a Halloween greeting
• you can use die cuts, stamps, punches, images on papers... etc.. anything goes!

This is what I came up with. When I read the recipe I instantly thought of my Cricut and the Paper Doll Dress up Cartridge. All the die cuts come from Paper Doll Dress up cartridge. Trick or Treat is an acrylic stamp I got from the dollar spot at Target in 2008. Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Bowling

Here is my version of pumpkin bowling (not an original idea of my own by any means). Just use a small pumpkin or gourd for the bowling ball. You can use either toy bowling pins or empty pop bottles. I covered them with paper towels to make them look like ghosts. I had tried white material but it made them too top heavy. These were quick and easy. We have already had a bit of fun with them. Happy Halloween!

Birthday Cards

I thought I would post some pictures of a few birthday cards I have made. Enjoy.

I love anything DISNEY. So, I love my Disney print programs, stamps, papers, etc. Did I say that I LOVE DISNEY!!!

I LOVE my Cuttlebug and my Cricut!!! But I also love my stamps, ribbon, patterned paper, you name it! My style changes constantly, but I definitely go for a pretty basic and simple look. Probably because I like the way it looks and I don't have hours to spend on every card or scrapbook layout that I make.
