Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #27

For the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #27 we were to find inspiration from a color pallet that was posted on their blog. The colors are creme, celery and a light eggplant. These colors are so beautiful together. Here is my entry using those colors. I made a little lightening bug jar with little lightening bugs flying in and around it. It makes me think of summertime, which is right around the corner!! I used my darling Simple Sallies Face Assortment on my little lightening bugs!!

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #26

Here is my entry for the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 26. I created my first card (the three colorful ducks) using the sweet Ducky Dolls set. I liked it so much that I decided to run it in my column.I had so much fun with this set, I made another card (the one duck with the daises). So, the second card is my entry to the challenge. My "up-cycled" item is the corrugated circle behind the duck. That is the inside of a light bulb package, the protective part that the light bulbs are packed in. The ducks are colored in with water color paints.

Bunny Place Cards

I made these little place cards for our Easter table. They were super simple and all 10 of them took less than 2 hours start to finish!
I used the gift bag on page 65 of Once Upon a Princess and the bunny face from Doodlecharms. I welded them together in Design Studio to create the bunny bag. (if anyone would like the DS file, please email me, I'd be happy to send it to you)
I cut the bags in a variety of spring colors then I cut a separate bunny faces in white and chalked them. I cut the name plate tag using Once Upon a Princess, the tag on page 49.
I assembled the bags using a hot glue gun. I worked great, quick with a tight bond.
I filled the little place card bags with jelly beans and bunny/duck/chick sweet tarts to weight them down. Then I added the grass.
thanks for looking! :)

Mini Tutorial using Once Upon a Princess

Here's a quick mini tutorial using the Cricut's Once Upon a Princess cartridge showing how to layer the dolls.
I used my Peachy Keen Everyday Character Stamps to create the faces on some of these dolls. You can find them here. The sweet patterned papers I used for their clothes are Bisous PDQ from their Rainbow collection and you can find it here.
