Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #19

Time for my favorite blog challenge!! The last Peachy Keen challenge of 2009.

My parents wedding anniversary was Saturday. They are coming for New Years tomorrow, I wanted to make them a special card. I love the sketch for challenge 19 and this was the idea I came up with.

I cut the snowflakes on my cricut in black out. They are from Joys of the Season. I stamped the snowflakes using Peachy Keen Large Snowflakes and Snow Faces (PK-232) on the blue bottom layer of the back snowflakes. Then on the white top layer I stamped the sweet penguins from Peachy Keen Penguin Doll Set (PK-318).

Sketchy Thursdays Second Chance Challenge

Here's my card for the Sketchy Thursday 2nd Chance Challenge. I used K&Co. Deck the Halls pp. It is glittery, I tried to get a picture that shows the glitter. This paper is beautiful, I'm not sure if it photographed as pretty as it really is. I made two of these cards as Christmas thank you cards for some gifts that I received yesterday. Inside they say thank you.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #18

I used the Oh So Adorable Peachy Keen Stamps Gingerbread Doll Set to create this card for the newest PKS Challenge #18. These stamps are hands down my favorite stamp set ever!! LOVE them!! The gumdrop pp's are from a super old Hot Off the Press paper tablet that I've had for about 5 years. Lots of stickels and sleigh cut from Cricut Christmas Cheer!!

btw...go check out the challenge!! Kathy and the DT crew are the greatest!!

a little Elf card

I used my Peachy Keen Christmas Character face stamps to make some elves, Santa and Mrs. Claus for a layout that will run in my column on December 13th. I made one too many elves so... I made the extra elf into a card. I used my Peachy Keen Large Snowflakes and Snow Faces stamps. I stamped the solid snowflake in pale blue and then the snowflake outline in silver. It made such a lovely background. The background patterned paper (with the reindeer) and the paper on the elf is K&Co. Swell Noel. I just love the nontraditional color scheme!!

a Christmas Church Card

I made this Christmas Church card for my favorite Priest, Fr. O'Brien of St. John's Church in Liverpool!! He is a sweet, kind soul!
I used my Cricut Christmas Solutions cart and Design Studio to cut the church. I used the "packing tape" method to put the glitter in the windows.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #17

OMGosh, Kathy and Peachy Keen Stamps is giving away the most amazing two sets of stamps EVER!!! WoW, they are so adorable!! {{good luck to me}} ha ha!!

So, here is my entry for this challenge!

My Aunt Janet is having a birthday on Monday and she is a doll collector. I used the Victorian doll on Christmas Solutions (Cricut cartridge). The papers are from a Making Memories {note}worthy project pad, Tara.

The stamp I used on the doll is from the Peachy Keen Christmas Character Assortment pack. It's the angel face, so versatile! It also could be used for a princess or a bride.
