Updated Twilight Characters using PKS

I decided to update my Twilight Characters. Here they are using PK-660 Laughy Taffy Face Assortment. I love this stamp face set!! It's awesome and super cute!! It's perfect for Edward, Bella and Jacob. I used Twinkling H2O's to color in the eyes and to give the bodies some shimmer, especially on Edward (its a little hard to see in the scan but IRL it's very shimmery).

PKS August Release Blog Hop day 7

Here's day seven and today I have two cards for you. One of them I made using the PK-630 Nikkity Knack Cat Gang set and the other I used the PK-631 Halloween Minis!

Here they are.

For this card, not only did I use the PK-631 Halloween Minis but I used the Tear Kitty die made by Peachy Keen Stamps and Cottage Cutz. I cut her in black, layered her and stamped her face with silver metallic ink. Then I popped the little witch hat from the stamp set on her head.

This was such a fun week. I hope everyone had as good a time with the New Peachy Keen Stamps as I have!! Hugs everyone!!!
