Happy Christmas Tag

I realized that I never posted my fun snowman tag that I made a few weeks ago so I thought I would share it now.

For this cutie I used the Happy Snowman with Label by Peachy Keen Stamps. For the snowflakes on the tag I used some stamps from the Snow Gifts stamp set. The tag itself is by My Creative Time and is called Tag Dies. I hope you enjoy this and have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

Thanksgiving Prayer

Happy Monday! It is my day to post over on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and I wanted to share a Thanksgiving card that I made. I truly have so much to be thankful for and this Thanksgiving prayer just says it beautifully.

I used the Lil' Tweets - Thanksgiving set for the sentiment and the bird. I colored him with some Copic Markers and did a little accenting with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The Thanksgiving prayer is mounted on the XL Label Die by My Creative Time (there is also a little sneak peek of a new die coming out soon). I added a wooden button and some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique to my bow. Then I finished it off with a little faux stitching around the edges. 

 I hope you all will have a safe and happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Hugs- Glora

If you came here from Cindy L.'s blog you are in the right spot, if not make sure that you head back to Emma's blog so that you can get the full hop in.

For my project I used the new Circle Font. I thought they would look really cute on a bath time layout for my baby.

I used the brand new Circle Font stamps with the circle from the Build a Banner set to create my title. I also used some of the circle dies as bubbles. The cute little baby is from the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge. I stamped the baby's face with the Critter Faces (large) stamp set and the duck's little eye was stamped with the Bird Faces and More stamp set by Peachy Keen Stamps.

These new font sets are AWESOME. I'm having so much fun playing with them.

As Emma stated in her video on Wednesday, she is offering a free CUTE stamp set "Thank You Hugs" to everyone who places their order by Sunday @ midnite! That will be the deadline to receive this FREE stamp set!

MCT November Stamp Release Sneak Peek

Hello and welcome to the first day of sneak peeks from My Creative Time's November stamp and die release. Today we are showcasing two awesome font stamp sets, Circle Font and Label Font.

For my tag I used Label Font. I don't have any sweet 16 stamps so this was the perfect set to make my own sentiment with.

The tag is from Emma's Tag Dies and as I mentioned the "Sweet 16" was made using the new Label Font. I cut the cupcake from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. I used some polka dot ribbon from American's Crafts and topped it off with a wooden button and some pretty hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Skatin' By to Say Hi!

***If you are looking for the Peachy Keen Stamps Thankful Hop click HERE or scroll down to the next post.***

We were having the most beautiful and warmish sort of fall weather and then POW we were just hit with a ton of snow. It is beautiful, I just kind of prefer it when I'm inside with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa. Well it only seemed the fitting weather to share a card I made for one of the challenges over on the Peachy Keen Connection. There is still a little time to join in on the fun challenges, so I hope you will play along.

Isn't this the cutest little penguin? I just LOVE her! She is from the Skatin' By stamp set that was just released at Peachy Keen Stamps. I paper pieced her and added some Stickles and silver gel pen as accents.  

Don't forget that the awesome Peachy Sale is still going on too.

And I hope to see you back here on Monday for the start of an awesome My Creative Time stamp and die release.

Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Thankful Blog Hop

Welcome to the Peachy Keen Stamps Thankful Blog Hop. Today we are hopping with the current and alumni design teams and it is all about being THANKFUL. I hope you enjoy all the projects today and end up feeling inspired and thankful. You should have arrived here from Raven Baca's blog but if not make sure that you start back at the Peachy Keen Stamps blog so you don't miss out on anything.

For my project I made a thankful banner:

I know it looks small here but the pilgrims are actually over 12" tall. I used the new 4" Everyday Character Faces for these cuties and I think I am in LOVE. I'm SO thankful that Kathy made these.

Here are some close ups:

The cute pilgrims come from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge and are extra cute because of their Peachy faces. Here is the boy:

The banner pieces and letters are all cut from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge:

I have so much to be thankful for. I have a beautiful family and a strong faith. We are truly blessed, I could could go on and on but I know you will want to keep hopping along.

Don't forget about the big sale going on right now:

There are some gift certificates up for grabs so make sure that you comment on as many blogs as possible to increase your odds of winning.

Your next stop is Ruthie Nixon

3D Wednesday at My Creative Time - Wreaths

***If you are looking for my SIMPLY CRAFTS Challenge click HERE or scroll down***

Hi, well today we are making wreaths for our 3D projects at My Creative Time. Big wreaths, small wreaths, paper wreaths, whatever our hearts desired. I haven't really made wreaths before so I decided to make a small one out of a 3" grapevine wreath.

For this I used the leaf dies from the Piles of Smiles stamp set. I crumpled and  inked them up like some of my design team sisters have shown me how to do. It came out with a fun look. I used the Stitched Oval Die and a sentiment from This and That stamp set.

Make sure to stop by the My Creative Time blog to see some beautiful wreaths. Hugs- Glora

Simply Crafts - Thankful For You Turkey

Well it is once again the first Wednesday of the month which means it is time for another Simply Crafts Challenge. The cut this month is the turkey from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. I hope you will come and join along in the challenge HERE.

This is my shape card with this cut:

This turkey has a REALLY small head so even though this card is approximately 4.5" squared I had to use the VERY smallest stamp in the Critter Faces - Small stamp assortment by Peachy Keen Stamps. The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Piles of Smiles and I used some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique for it. I also did a bunch of faux stitching. This is a pretty plain cut so I thought it needed some help to make it pop.

Make sure to stop by Pam's blog (HERE). I've already seen her card and it is cute and way too funny. We would love to have you join in the fun at the Simply Crafts Challenge Blog. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

PKS: November 2012 Stamp Kit of the Month Sneak Peek

Oh JOY is right! These new stamps by Peachy Keen Stamps are DELIGHTFUL! There are oodles of awesome holiday options with this awesome kit this month! These sets are just AMAZING. There are several different expressions you can give these sweet little reindeer and the elves are just ADORABLE!

For this all of my patterned paper comes from My Mind's Eye. The darling reindeer and sentiment came from the November 2012 Stamp Kit of the Month by Peachy Keen Stamps. I stamped on some dark Kraft colored paper and then colored with some Copics and chalks. I did a little accenting with my white Gelly Roll Pen and made the silver bells really SILVER with a silver Gelly Roll Pen.

If you haven't already make sure you stop by the Peachy Keen blog to be ABSOLUTELY inspired and enabled ;).

PKS Sketch Challenge

Well it is time for another awesome sketch challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps. I think this is such a fun sketch:

As you can see I don't normally stray too far from a sketch - LOL.

I used the Halloween Holler Scarecrow Driver stamp set. I colored him up with my watercolor pencils. I've been having some fun with those lately. For the sentiment I used a die that comes from the Just Simply Live stamp and die set by My Creative Time. A few adhesive rhinestones and sheer polka dot ribbon and that was about it. 

I hope you will join in this fun challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps. I can't wait to see what you make.

Also did you notice the call for the 2013 Peachy Keen Stamps Design Team (click HERE for details)? This has been a dream come true experience for me. So many of you are huge Peachy Keen fans and do such amazing work with the stamps. I hope you will try out for the team and I wish you the BEST of LUCK!!!! 

Hugs- Glora
